I followed up with Virdina, Asking how her Sentra was running after we replaced her bad battery. She said she was happy, She
had previously called after picking up her car asking why there were no warning lamps on, I said that any vehicle that we work on, we always check and adjust the tire pressure and that was why she did not have any warning lamps staying on. She still
thought that we were too high!. She had her car towed in after it died on the frwy. We checked it out and replaced her battery with a 65 month prorated battery all for $233.00, We verified that the charging system was charging and the computor did not have any trouble codes. I don''t know about you, But $233.00 is a fair amount to pay for (peace of mine) knowning that your car won't
break down on the frwy.
Hello Bob I called you this morning regarding your Lexus, Inquiring about the check engine warning lamp was it staying off?, We replaced the air/fuel sensor, You said the light has not come on again; I also reminded you that the left front strut must be bent because the Camber was out of the specs and when you picked up the vehicle I gave you an estimate on replacement of both front struts to correct the Camber and the pull to the right. I also said that the Vehicle has 110k miles on it and the struts are the originals, so we should replace the rear struts also so this Lexus will ride like it should. Thank you Bob. Tony
When a oil service is done, we inspect the vehicle. the front brakes
had 6mm. of life left anf the rear brakes have .5mm of life left.
I brought that to her attention- we reccomend a brake service when the lining is at or under 2mm. of life left. She stated that she was parking the car and going overseas for a while. Lets hope she remembers to have the rear brakes done when she starts to drive her car when she gets back from overseas!
other wise she may have to replace the rear brake drums
because she only had .5mm of life left, and when the brake lining is gone the drums can be damaged because of the metal to metal contact which will cost her more then instead of being more proactive to her manitenance needs.
Leroy, We performed a smog inspection. Your Vehicle failed for the functional check engine warning lamp not working and for visual inspection: Fuel evaporative purge control solenoid wiring has been cut and the pigtail was missing from the vehicle and a hose was missing for the closed crankcase ventilation, and the vehicle has 4 trouble codes stored in the vehicles computor. We gave you a itemized estimates to remove the insturment cluster and test the check engine light bulb circuit (possible burned light bulb) and to repair the purge contol solenoid wiring and pigtail and restore the missing hose for the closed crankcase ventilation system and clear the trouble codes and perform a drive cycle to complete the monitors and see if those trouble codes come back? We can not give you a estimate till we know if and what trouble codes do appear! I believe this estimate is very accurate considering the condition of this vehicle!
Patricia we check your battery, charging, starting systems- all checked out o.k. and we checked for any abnormal battery draws it took 40 minutes for your on board computors to time out
(shut off) which is normal. You must have a intermitant battery
draw, which when we inspected your vehicle the draw was not there! Please bring vehicle back so we can have more time to experiance your problem and locate that "problem" battery draw!
We replaced the waterpump, upper radiator hose and expansion tank cap. She brought car cack to us and we checked the computor for trouble codes, has PO171,PO174 which are "engine running lean" trouble codes. We reinspected the engine for possible vaccum hoses that possible could had left disconnected none found. We cleared the trouble codes and advised her that we repaired the cooling system and if the check engine lamp came on again we would have to look further into why the engine is running lean. It has been a couple of days so I had left a message on her phone inquiring if the check engine light coming back on? So far no call as of friday the 9th.
