Question Answered: My coolant and washer fluid level warnings do not work.
February 05, 2015, 06:57 AM
Sounds like someone forgot to plug something back in if it just started directly after the repairs. Checking the electrical connections is where I would start first.

Several things could cause a car alarm to go off randomly. A proper electrical diagnosis would need to be performed in order to determine cause.

December 22, 2014, 08:27 AM
It could be several issues that can lead to this concern. It could be a wiring concern for the speaker, an amplifier concern, or just an internal failure of a component inside of the radio itself.

I would agree with CharlesAutomotive's response. Make sure the belt is not too tight to start. If not, there could be several issues that lead to this same concern.
Question Answered: I have a 1992 Toyota Camry. The Temperature gauge is showing low temperature when it should not. The engine is not over heating. Could this be a bad temperature sensor or a stuck open thermostate.
November 24, 2014, 06:49 AM
Hi, It could be both. I would recommend bringing the vehicle into a repair shop to have the vehicle properly diagnosed so you are not installing the incorrect part on the vehicle. Both the temperature sensor and a stuck thermostat can cause the same exact concern on the vehicle. Have a great day!
Question Answered: oil light on, jeep died out. added oil but now theres a tick sound from engine

Good morning, We would not be able to provide an accurate estimate in this case due to the fact of all the components can be damaged when a vehicle is driven without oil. I would recommend bring the vehicle into the repair shop and have a technician properly diagnose the engine noise and where it is coming from within the engine. Valve train damage can often be repaired at a lower cost. Usually if there is lower end engine damage, it us usually more cost effective to replace the engine with a used unit.

I would recommend you have the suspension and steering components checked before taking a road trip to ensure a safe trip with the vehicle. Jeff Service Manager Addison Auto Repair and Body Shop
Question Answered: Door locks freeze quite often. I am in my car now with my key stuck in the door.

In regards to key being stuck in the lock, the best temporary repair we can suggest at this time to get you rolling is to spray some WD40 or carbide lubricant into the key hole. If the key will not release try wiggleing it back and forth with out forcing the key to bend. Feel free to tow the vehicle over and we can perform a diagnosis on the door lock. Thank you Alfredo Acevedo 303-691-9484

Question Answered: Both Pads and Rotors Necessary?
November 03, 2010, 02:06 PM
Hi Andrea, Your Porsche has performance style brakes where the brake compound is very soft. Those type of vehicles usually require new rotors, pads and sensors. There is a cheaper way by what’s called “pad slapping” but not recommended because it can stress other brake components. It all depends on how thick the rotors are. If the rotors are thick enough, you can replace the pads and sensor but if they are to thin it could cause some safety concerns. You will have to replace the sensor because when the light comes on it’s because the sensor made contact with the rotor and burned the tip of the sensor that’s the design one time use only. Hopefully this will help. Thanks, Jason
