This is a recent issue we encountered on a late model Jeep with the 3.6 engine. The oil filter housing under the intake manifold springs a leak causing the "valley" of the engine to fill with oil the spilling over the rear of the engine many times being confused with a rear main seal leak or transmission leak. This photo shows the oil on the engine after intake manifold and filter housing removal.

Many issues can cause a car's heater to malfunction. Many times we find a inexpensive broken part buried in the instrument panel that just plain breaks. In this case a Camaro, with an obvious poorly designed blend door. Most times the entire dash must be removed to allow access to the door. I set the actuator (motor) next to it to show how it works. A Chevrolet dealer quoted $2500 to get into this repair, we did find an alternative to pulling the entire dashboard out, however it still took over 5 hours to repair. A better design by the manufacturer would have prevented this entire problem!

Oldest one we've had here in a while. This classic 1941 Dodge came in for some wiring and exhaust repair.

A/C leaks can be difficult to track down. Many vans and SUVs have rear air conditioning which includes a core inside a box or housing which is located inside the rear quarterpanel. The inner fender and interior trim must be removed just to gain access to the heater a/c box. The box is then removed to swap out the evaporator core which was the leaking component evidenced by the refrigerant oil stain in the highlighted area. Several hours are typically required for these types of repairs.

Another critter car! This 2015 Kia had a hard to shift into gear complaint. A critter decided to check in and chew up all the insulation under the hood to make a nest upstairs near the shifter while using the downstairs for a potty room.

It is always best to have brakes done professionally. This 2017 Ford Van arrived with "a bad wheel bearing." Upon inspection we found someone had just put new brake pads on it and installed the inboard pad backwards thus destroying the brake rotor. The bearings were fine.

More rodent damage. This Chrysler 300 Hemi had multiple codes and symptoms due to mice and chipmunks nesting under the intake manifold. They chewed thru wires causing them to short against the engine and damaging the MDS solenoids. A weekly underhood inspection, especially in the fall, could have prevented this mess.
Remember to keep pet food and birdseed stored in your garage in steel cans to prevent rodents access.

These photos show a severely neglected car that just had it's oil changed a week ago at some other facility. The mouse nest behind the alternator was actually in part of it and smoldering. The leaves and debris on the cowl can plug up air vents and in worse situations cause wiper failure. A gaping hole in the air induction pipe was allowing unfiltered air to pass through multiple sensors and the engine. A few minutes extra to vacuum this mess up and note problems to the customer is what should have happened. Under hood areas should be checked regularly for any visable problems that could prevent a big repair bill later!

When a car has no heat or partial heat, many times it turns out to be a heater core issue. The first clue here was crustage and slight seepage of engine coolant at the firewall. A few hours later and with the core removed the problem became clear....severe rust in the core partially plugging it and a hole in the tube of the core.

Brakes stop your car.....a pretty important function!
We came upon this unsafe scene today....outer pad installed upside down and the wrong sized brake rotor on the same car causing fast and uneven pad wear. The rotor was .6 of an inch too small in diameter. Owner complaining of soft pedal and noise....he had just bought the car!

Our handy customer kept trying to adjust his rear brakes up but the pedal level never really responded. Nothing replaces a complete inspection. Upon inspection we found leaking wheel cylinders, saturated brake shoes, and worn out hardware, preventing self adjusters from adjusting. Brakes are too important to take a chance with, always go with a compete system inspection.

Boy they pack components in cars nowadays. This 2011 GMC Terrain had a small freon leak in the air conditioning condenser which you can see required the front of the vehicle to be removed to gain access. We use freon with green dye to help locate the leaks. Not a fun job on a 90+ degree day but our customer will go home cool😊

This pink crud is actually engine coolant leaking from a water pump driven by a timing belt. There in no way it can be seen as it is buried under other items on your engine. At 5 + hours labor to replace this always replace the waterpump and all pulleys and tensioners while you have it apart to do the belt.

You never know what you will find as you delve into a job. This Lexus SUV had critters living under the intake manifold. They must have got hungry as they ate some sensor wires.

Todays lessen is on a 2015 Dodge Dart with @ 30,000 miles on it. At first glance a leaking strut may not seem such a big deal....upon disassembling the strut the reason for the leak became apparent. A very bad pothole caused the strut piston to actually bend causing severe noise and handing issues.

This job was a challenge to diagnose. Chevrolet was towed in as a no start. It cranked great with good fuel pressure and great spark. Even the compression test showed decent results. Upon cranking it showed no vacuum a tip that led us to pull the front of the engine apart which revealed this mess...a broken timing chain tensioner and chain.

Shorted out high performance ignition module under the driver seat of a 1968 Corvette. We will relocate the new one to a better spot!

Electrical problems come in all shapes and sizes! Rewire job on the lights of a rolls to a shorted out ignition system on a corvette.

These are sparkplugs removed today from a 2005 Ford V8. 3 of 8 came out clean. The remaining 5 had to be carefully extracted so as to not damage the engine. Poor design is a technicians worst nightmare!

This mouse nest clogged the heating system filter and subsequently burned up the car's blower motor. It's that time of year where the pests migrate to warmth....like a parked car in or out of a garage. Don't forget a full regular inspection of your car or truck!
