Issues To Consider About Auto Repair It could be a very stressful situation when worrying regarding what company to select


for your personal auto repair, but as long as you know how to go about the procedure it might be quite simple. Every company will claim they have the best mechanics and provide the lowest prices, but clearly which is incorrect. The best way to know you are receiving the best repair to the lowest price would be to make time to seek information. Step one to locating the best company is to consider the reviews which have been left by previous customers. Chances are that you might have more mechanics in your neighborhood than it is possible to count. It can be hard to choose which companies to even compare to others. Choose a site that gives you the option to see their reviews in a general star level. From that point you will be able to obtain the top 10 companies in the area. Then you certainly should take the time to read the reviews that have been left by their past clients. Recognize that there definitely will probably be negative reviews, regardless how good the business is, but the vast majority needs to be positive. Search for negative reviews that share exactly the same issues, such as being forced to bring their vehicle back in a brief length of time because it actually was not yet fixed. Any shop should e in a position to diagnose and fix a car the initial time. Through your initial set of 10 you should certainly narrow it right down to 3 different businesses that are the very best. You may then call each and inquire if they are willing to offer you a quotation cost-free. If they have made your top 3 list they ought to be over willing to do this. That way you can determine what they feel to get the trouble in addition to the things they think it is going to cost. When you have quotes from all 3 you can then decide who to use. It can be tempting to choose simply in accordance with the cost, but exactly how they treat you must also be considered. Customer service is essential when it comes to auto repair. Should they be willing to explain everything to you personally and show you that they feel which you have value they are truly enthusiastic about obtaining your company and keeping it. Take into consideration every factor of your interaction prior to you making a conclusion about which mechanic you think is most beneficial to service your car. Every auto mechanic will claim that they have the best costs, from parts to service, but to be honest that they all differ in many ways. Take time to investigate how others have felt with regards to their service, what their pricing is and exactly how you personally felt when you visited their shop. This really is the easiest method to get a quality auto repair center that may suit your needs and expectations.

How Much Would It Cost To Put A Head Gasket Back Together After It Has Been Milled At Machine Shop?
I Had The Head Gasket Taken Off And Sent To The Shop To Get Milled And Now All I Have To Do Is Put It Back Together .

Are you talking about the gasket, or the head itself? I've never heard of any place milling the gasket.

10 Pts For Best Detailed Answer About Headbolts For Toyota Truck!?
Do You Really Have To Have Two Sets Of New Headbolts To Replace The Old Ones When Changing A Blowed Head Gasket In A 1992 V6 3.0 4Wd Half Ton Toyota Truck? I Heard That If You Use The Old Bolts Then It Will Be Weak And Probably Blow Again. Is This True? New Sets Cost 30 Dollars A Peice And Id Like To Save The Money If I Can. Please Explain. Thankyou!

the toyota factory shop manual shows them as non-reusable. they are torque to yield bolts. as stated, they stress and torque settings maybe skewed.

if you have the 3VZE engine with the right exhaust manifold routed over the top of the bell housing, you want to use new ones. the heat on the heads and head gaskets back there are know for failure, do to the heat.

i typically re-use head bolts on other engines. but for this engine, i wouldn't.
if your exhaust doesn't go over the engine/bell housing, you can prolly get away with the old ones. in either case, it's not per manual.

it's your choice.

My Sister Has A 2000 Toyota Camry Which Is 'Eating' Alot Of Oil, But Not Burning It. Could This Be A?
Head Gasket Problem?

It could be a head gasket problem but that would be unusual. It's more likely a leaking valve stem oil seal that is letting a little oil get into a cylinder, where it is burned. It could also be a leak that drips oil as the car is driven.

Check the spark plugs and see if one has more crud on it than the others. That's a good indication that some oil is being burned. You only see clouds of oil smoke behind a car when the situation is REALLY bad, not when there is minor burning. I had a 1987 Audi that used a quart of oil every 500 miles but never smoked.

Help....My Car Will Turn Over But Will Not Start ?
I Hv A 98 Toyota Camry 4 Cylinder When I Try To Start It Everything Seems Fine But It Will Not Catch To Start. There Is Water, Oil, & It Wasn'T Smoking. I Was Driving & The Car Just Started To Slow Down Even When I Was Flooring The Gas. Now It Wnt Start. What Could Hv Happened? I Really Would Appreciate Some Advice. Thnx.

You need a few things to start the motor- fuel, air, compression and spark at the right time. Take the air filter out and see if it starts. If so, that's easy to fix- a new filter. Fuel is a bit harder to check because your car has fuel injection, right? You can squirt engine starting fluid into the intake manifold (where the air filter goes) and if it starts, then you have a fuel delivery problem. If you pull the spark plugs, you can do a compression test, but this is trickier and you'll need the compression tester. Spark is fairly easy to check- with the spark plugs out, put the number one plug on the wire, then hold it with a stick against the head. (Be careful because you don't want to be in the circuit of a few thousand volts.) If you see spark, that's good. If not, then you heed to check your ignition system.

With a gradual loss of power leading to not starting, it could be several things- your fuel delivery system could have failed, your ignition system could have gone down, slowly, or your air intake got closed gradually. Hard to say what your problem really is. Your local library will have a reference section with a Hayne's or Chilton's manual. Read the troubleshooting chapter and see what matches your symptoms. Best of luck !!!

I Have A 1996 Full Size Ford Bronco With A 5.8 Liter Windsor Engine And I Want To Supercharge It?
I'Ve Been Doing A Lot Of Research On Superchargers But I Don'T Know Enough About Them To Make The Correct Choice. I Want Something Used Thats Nice Not Beaten Up, Maybe Even Something New But Not To Expensive.

Buying a used supercharger comes with risk. You may save some money if it's in good working condition but you won't know that until you bolt it on, start the engine, and then drive it. It could have a bad bearing, the compressor parts could be worn, or you might need a new belt. You won't even know if it's 100% right for your application unless the owner can prove it or if you contact the manufacturer. You'd have to make sure you get every piece that came with it or you'd have to pay a premium to get those parts separately from the manufacturer. You can repair or rebuild any worn compressor since the manufacturer will make service parts for them.
However, having said that you may have no choice but to buy a used supercharger if you want a bolt on kit without having to modify or customize anything since I don't think anyone makes a kit for your application anymore if they even ever did. Vortech and Kenne Bell used to make kits for the 1987-96 F-150/Bronco 5.0L but no longer produce them.
All supercharger kits are expensive. The size of the compressor and the amount of boost it can produce is really the deciding factor of the price. A larger compressor will be able to produce more boost with less effort, RPM, and wear and tear on it. The more boost you run the harder it is on the engine and the more risk you take blowing head gaskets or doing other more catastrophic damage. If the engine has 100000 miles or more you'll probably wind up doing something to it eventually due to the supercharger but you never really know how long the engine will go for before a problem occurs.
If you run 5 lbs of boost(generally the minimum) with a centrifugal type supercharger like the Vortech you might get about a 75 hp and 75 ft lbs of torque increase on your engine. This will be very noticeable and the safest and easiest way to do it. There's also a roots type supercharger like the Kenne Bell but the deck of the 5.8L is higher than that of the 5.0L so they won't be compatible.
My suggestion is go onto any Ford truck forum and see what they say about putting a kit on a Bronco. People will talk about what they done to make it work with a 5.8L and you can even post a question if you join. Here's an example of a forum where they talk a little about a 5.0L supercharger: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/185134...

A Question For A Mechanic Or Mechanically Inclined?
My Car A 95 Toyota 4Runner Has Been Running Rough At Start Up And Then After A Few Minutes It Would Mellow Out, Also The Gas Mileage Using Twice As Much Gas, Two Months Ago I Get A Major Tune-Up Costing $480.00 The Roughness Stopped For About A Month Then Slowly Started Again. Then Last Week I Drove And Noticed Some White Smoke From The Tailpipe. Next Time I Tried To Start It It Wouldn'T Even Turn Over. A Few Hours Later It Started Right Up. I Drove It Straight To My Regular Mechanic. It Was A Friday And He Says It Will Have To Sit Till Monday I Say Thats Ok, Well He Didn'T Get To It Till Tuesday And Usually Before He Ever Repaired The Car In The Past He'D Call First Give A Ballpark Figure And Ask If I Wanted Him To Go Ahead And Fix It, Not This Time. He Calls Me And Said He Replaced The Starter And The Charge $547.00, And Then Tried To Find Out Why Its Running Rough (Like A Broken Motor Mount) Anyway Long Story Short Its Either The Head Gasket Or A Cracked Block Ti Did Overheat Twice After Driving Two Miles About 6 Months Ago And He Couldn'T Find The Problem Back Then. Well Anyway I Cut Him A Check For Replacing The Starter But I Left The Car There Till Tonight,(3Days) Later. It Was After Hours And I Go To Start The Car Adn It Wouldn'T Start I Tried Three Times To Start It The I Waited And Then It Started Just Like He Hadnt Done Nothing Makes Me Wonder If He Replaced The Starter At All In My Receipt It Said The Origanal Stater Had Electricity To It But It Was Starting To Bind Up. Now The Brand New Starter Bound Up Also? I Don'T Believe It. This Guy Has Been My Mechanic For 8 Years But Now Acts Aloof When He Used To Be So Friendly, Anyway Why Does It Act As Though He Didn'T Touch The Starter. I Personally Don'T Even Know Where The Starter Is Even Located On This Engine To See If It Even Looks New. Any Advise Please?

Have it towed to a good shop and get a written diagnosis of the problems. You might then be able to file suit in small claims court and recover your money from the first mechanic. Or you might find that the first mechanic is trying as hard as he can to keep a perfectly useless junker on the road for a valued customer. As to the friendly part, maybe recent marriage issues may be at play. I certainly don't know.
