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, Matt Allen of Virginia Auto Service in Phoenix, AZ talks about how a quality auto repair shop should test and diagnose a problem with your vehicle. Also on this show:

  • Should you trust a shop that offers "free" diagnostic services?
  • How often do auto repair shops offer their employees additional diagnostic training?
  • How often proper testing will require the removal of components from your vehicle.
  • 2008 Hyundai Elantra: After a brake fluid flush, my brakes are still having issues. What else could be the cause of this?
  • 2014 Dodge Charger: What information can you give me about the diagnostic codes I'm reading (PO455) as well as the gas cap for my specific vehicle?
  • 2001 Chevrolet S10: If I were to have my engine rebuilt, where would you recommend I go?
  • 2013 Ford F150: My truck has been losing power once it hits a certain RPM. What could be the source of this issue?
  • 2003 Lexus: Recently three different warning lights came on in one trip. Are these all related to one another?
