Anticipation was getting the better of me this morning, as I awoke an hour earlier than usual. As I drove into work, I just had this feeling that it was going to be a busy day…..
Check engine light on. Poor drivability.
Code interogation with Modis. Code P0340-Camshaft Sensor error. Pinpoint diagnostics performed to find fault. Found magnetic pickup in camshaft sensor to have failed. Replace sensor, road test. Good Fix!
Saturday and Monday mornings are always exciting. The anticipation on the ride to the shop can be nerve racking. Will there be any tow ins? Will there be too many? Will there be something exotic?(ie Lambo, Corvette, Porsche, etc…) This morning was kind of dissappointing. Only one tow in! PT Cruiser…..(to be continued)

Many customers assume that when the clutch doesn’t seem to work properly, its time for a new clutch. Although this may be true in some cases, we find that there are often other issues that may not require such extensive repair. Roy’s Quality Car Care shops begin with a comprehensive inspection of the clutch system to determine the source of the problem and therefore can recommend the proper repair. In some cases, the problem may only be a clutch hydraulic component failure such as a clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder. In other cases the clutch may indeed require replacement.
In the event that a clutch replacement is required, we will only use new clutches from trusted manufacturers and resurfacing of the flywheel is always performed on site (this corner is sometimes cut by other “professionals”) to control the quality of the final repair.
4WD vehicles use a “transfer case” and additional other components to provide power to all 4 wheels. This is especially useful when driving in wet/snowy conditions but is also allows off-road enthusiasts to enjoy getting to places not accessible by any other mode of transport. Although generally reliable, there are intricacies to these systems that at times can cause operation problems- sometimes even turning on a warning light at the dash. Our many years of dealing with transmissions have also acquainted us with the myriad of 4WD systems in use today. Our expertise and experience allow us the ability to properly diagnose and repair these systems on a regular basis.
Obviously, the best situation would be to have little or no problems with the 4WD systems in your vehicle. That is why we recommend regular maintenance of the vital fluids used by these components. Ask our Service Advisors today how best to maintain your 4WD system.
