Also on this show:

  • Why moving from shop to shop can cause issues over time in your vehicle.
  • Why you should replace your battery proactively with an Interstate Battery.
  • 2014 Chevrolet Sonic: This car has a difficult time starting after filling it with gas. Is this an issue with the fuel pump?
  • 2004 Ford Ranger: My check engine light starts to flash while coming to a stop, but the truck is driving fine. How can I diagnose this problem?
  • 1989 Chevrolet Blazer: It feels like my truck isn’t getting enough gas. What parts could be contributing to this issue?
  • 2004 Cadillac Escalade: What does “service stability” mean? Is this an electrical issue?
  • Dodge Ram: I noticed my voltage meter was a little low while starting my truck last week. What advice can you give me about dual battery systems? Do I need to replace both at once?
  • 2013 Lexus RX350: I was recently hit by a driver running a red light. What do you suggest I do with my car?
