  • How a lack of knowledge can lead to auto repair shops performing more work than necessary.
  • 2005 Dodge Ram 1500:  I tow every day with this truck. I’ve been replacing my water pump every yea – is there something I should be doing differently to see more life out of my water pumps?
  • 2008 Jeep Patriot: Each time I fill my gas tank completely, my engine will die shortly everywhere. Is this a valve issue?
  • 1981 GMC Concord: For the past 6 months, something has been draining the battery in my car. My mechanics have taken a look and can’t find the issue. Any other ideas?
  • 2002 Audi GT: My car drives smoothly until you start giving it a good amount of gas. Is this a fuel line issue?
