Bumper to Bumper Radio, the car guys on KTAR, 92.3 FM in Phoenix, AZ, broadcast every Saturday from 11:00 am to noon. On this show, Dave Riccio of Tri-City Transmission in Tempe, AZ and Matt Allen of Virginia Auto Service in Phoenix, AZ talks about where you can find original factory or aftermarket replacement parts for your car or truck and which to avoid. Also on this show:

  • Why some manufacturers do not offer replacement parts of their own.
  • Information about replacing parts in your vehicle across different makes.
  • Common parts you will need to replace during your vehicle’s lifetime.
  • Why aftermarket parts can at times out-perform the originals.
  • Ford F250: One of my fleet vehicles is in need of a catalytic converter. We were quoted over $2k at one shop and only $600 at another. Is there a noticeable difference between the converters themselves?
  • Chevrolet Silverado: What information can you give me about the Interstate Batteries factory?
  • 1990 Honda Prelude: I’m having trouble finding quality parts for my vehicle. I’ve had issues with my transmission fluid leaking as well. How can I fix up this vehicle to a reliable performance level?
  • Nissan Armada: What advice can you give me at 160k miles for my vehicle? We frequently take long family trips.
  • 2005 Chrysler: After replacing the timing kit, my vehicle is still idling rough. What other replacements or services could you recommend to me?
