Hello, 2006 impala 3.9, p 0010 dtc, Camshaft Position Actuator ABank-1 Circuit Malfuntion, replaced camshaft position sensor, code still appears, and ideas? Mike
The code P0010 is a code set when the Camshaft Position Actuator is open or shorted to ground. In order to test to see if the Camshaft Actuator is working or if the wiring is to blame for the short you have to use a scan tool to communicate with the vehicles computer to do a self test. If you don't have the tools to do this we would be happy to diagnose the issue for you for $89.00. Feel free to call us to set an appointment 970-484-4040 or set one up online.
I have a 2001 VW cabrio, and my windshield wipers are not working. I turn them on and I can hear the motor but the wipers dont move. Ive replaced the fuse in the fuse box, and tighten the bolts on the wipers themselves and still nothing. Should I have a mechanic look at this or is this something else I can still do?
More than likely there is an issue with the wiper motor action not reaching the transmission rods. These parts are underneath the cowling under the hood. If you do not feel comfortable taking it any further than you already have we would be happy to look at it for you. Feel free to call us and schedule an appointment at 970-484-4040 or schedule an appointment online!
I have a 2006 pt cruser that just started to make a ticking sound in the motor,it speeds up and down with the motor. The motor has 60k miles and has always had synthetic oil in it,changed every 3k miles.The motor runs smooth.I checked for for leaks in hoses and gaskets by pouring water over motor as it ran. It is a 2.4L non-tubo.Should I get a compression check,to see if it's a bad valve spring or keeper?The motor is not smokeing or over heating.But I hear a gurgling sound comeing out of the valve cover with the oil cap off while running. What do you think I should do next? thank you

i lost both sets of keys for my car and was wondering a prise range to make a new key for a 1996 honda prelude vtech 2dr .
Usually the cost for making new keys is anywhere between $65-$100 depending on the approach we have to take. If there is no key to use as a template then we need to remove the lock tumbler and either code it for a new key or use the code already there. Please call for an appointment 970-484-4040
My 1999 Dodge B3500 Van doesn't leak oil in the driveway and doesn't exhaust any smoke as in normal oil leaks but yet it will disappear about 2 quarts every 300 miles.What could make it disappear?
Sometimes oil can leak on the top of the engine i.e. valve covers and intake manifolds and never make it to the bottom of the engine compartment to start leaking on the driveway. For situations like yours we like to degrease the engine compartment top and bottom and then add oil dye so we can track where your oil is going. The cost for this is $53. Call to make an appointment so we can solve your disappearing oil issue. 970-484-4040
My car need to replace starter soon, but I have to get pay check. Then I would like to know if I wait for long, does it affect to the engine?
Waiting for too long to get a starter will affect your ability to start the engine, naturally. Also depending on the way the starter is failing it may do damage to the flywheel, which it engages to make the engine turn. My advice is to baby your vehicle until you can afford the repairs so that you're not doing any other damage from one failing part.When you are ready to repair your vehicle call to make an appointment 970-484-4040
The automatic antenna stopped working on my 96 Toyota Camry LE. It won't go up or down by itself anymore and makes a very annoying grinding sound whenenver I turn the radio on/off. Does the entire mechanism need to be replaced or just the mast? What would such a problem cost?
Judging from the grinding noise you are hearing I would say that the antenna motor is malfunctioning. To replace it along with the antenna mast the cost would be $177.13.

Hi, I have a 1999 Pontiac grandam. The antifreeze deems to drain in record time and I am afraid it is leaking into the engine. I was told that the hoses needed to be flushed. What would be the price estimate? thanks
A coolant flush is $130.96 however if there is a leak we would need to fix it before we can flush the system. In your case it might be better for us to diagnose the leak first which would be $44.50 then we could tell you what is wrong and the cost to fix it. Give us a call to set up an appointment to take a look at it. Thanks for thinking of us!
Hello! Can you kindly give me an estimate on how much would it cost to replace a radiator (plus hoses and other applicable parts) on a 1999 Toyota Camry I-4?
