On this show, Dave Riccio of Tri-City Transmission in Tempe, AZ and Matt Allen of Virginia Auto Service in Phoenix talk about modern technology that makes your vehicle safer and more efficient. Also on this show:

  • Current demand for auto repair technicians.
  • What components of your vehicle you should check before taking a road trip – especially in colder temperatures.
  • Where you can purchase non-freezing windshield washer solvent.
  • Some interesting vintage vehicles that have come into Tri-City Transmission in recent weeks.

  • Information about Carvana – a great new way to purchase a vehicle!
  • 1966 Caprice: Who would you recommend to have my engine rebuilt?
  • 2014 Chevrolet Silverado: I’ve been losing power steering intermittently along with my dash lights coming on and off. Have you seen this problem with these trucks before?
  • 2006 Jaguar: After some repairs, my fuel gauge stopped working. I was told this was a computer issue to accommodate the new fuel pump. What advice can you give me?
  • Dodge Dakota: I’ve had problems with high RPMs. Could this be a transmission issue or something related to my tow haul?
  • 1951 Chevrolet: I was told that my cam shaft gear is stripped – do you know of any shops that would work on this vehicle?

Cars talked about on this show are the 1966 Caprice, 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, 2006 Jaguar, Dodge Dakota, and the 1951 Chevrolet.
