Question Asked: Car accelerates improperly
June 17, 2017, 03:08 PM
Sometimes when I start my car, I drive a few seconds and all is normal, but then in a few more seconds the car will slow down a lot and very quickly and it feels as though the car is going to stop completely even though my foot is pressing down normally on the accelerator. In a few seconds' time the car picks up normal speed and I'm off as normal. I'm worried that this will happen in the middle of traffic as I'm leaving a parking lot and entering the road with cars coming up very fast behind me. This has happened in the last ~ 8 months on about 6 occasions.

Question Asked: Strut/shock wear
April 28, 2017, 12:48 PM
What happens when the struts and shocks wear out (how does it affect the car over all?)
Question Asked: Shock/strut replacement (how many need replacement)
April 28, 2017, 12:45 PM
Mechanic says I need to replace shock/strut and need a stabilizer bar kit. Total cost for job is about $900. My understanding is that there are two(?) shock and struts (4 in total). Will they have to replace all 4 at one time or could it be they meant one shock, one strut (the estimate looks like they are charging for one of each rather than both for back and front).
Question Asked: How much should a transmission mount and motor mount cost-- parts and labor?
September 08, 2016, 02:46 PM
I cannot find "transmission mount" or "motor mount" listed under the repair list on this site to get a cost. Does anyone know what these procedures cost in San Diego, CA or at least in general? Thanks
Question Asked: brake fluid and front brakes

Does one need to change the brake fluid when replacing pads and turning the rotor or replacing the rotor?
Question Asked: Brake Shoe Fair charge
July 19, 2016, 11:38 AM
I just had my brake shoes replaced and the mechanic charged me a haz fee of $7. I've never seen a haz fee for parts like this in the past. Is this legit? Thanks!
Question Asked: how do I shut off my check engine warning light
November 26, 2015, 10:43 PM
Check engine warning light comes on every once in a while but there is nothing wrong with the car. Someone told me there is a way to shut it off myself instead of having a mechanic do it.
Question Asked: Does brake fluid need to be changed?
September 04, 2015, 06:17 PM
Mechanic was working on changing my brake pads and called me later to say the brake fluid needed changing. This turned out to be kind of pricey. For the next time: does brake fluid usually need to be changed when changing brake pads?
