Service $50, Freon $19/lb. Service air conditioner. Check condition of all belts and lines. Test system performance. Evacuate and recharge with freon and dye.
Compressor compresses refrigerant before traveling to condenser. The Condenser cools the gaseous refrigerant and changes to liquid. Receiver/drier functions as a refrigerant filter – removing moisture & contaminants. As liquid refrigerant passes through the expansion valve it becomes partly vaporized & cools rapidly. The evaporator removes heat from the air inside the vehicle. Refrigerant continues vaporization, cool air is released through the vents.

A malfunction indicator lamp (MIL), commonly referred to as the “Check Engine Light”, indicates malfunction(s) of a computerized engine management system. When illuminated on vehicles (1996+) with OBD-II, the light has two stages: steady (indicating a minor fault) and flashing (indicating a severe fault).
$90 Code retrieval if check engine light on and diagnostic investigation. Vehicle symptoms inspection and test related components for proper function.
A dynamo-meter or “dyno” for short, is a device for measuring force, moment of force (torque), or power. For example, the power produced by an engine, motor or other rotating prime mover can be calculated by simultaneously measuring torque and rotational speed (RPM). The Dyno is used during our SMOG inspections.
$120 Electrical diagnostics. Repairs as recommended.
Fuel injection cleaning, fuel mixture adjustment, adjust timing, check emission coming from tailpipe.
Complete engine removal and replacement. Option of swapping for a low mileage (under 60-80k) engine or a rebuilt engine.

$69 (most) Clean gum and soft carbon deposit from fuel delivery components and inside combustion chamber. Perform complete fuel pressure and volume test.
Fuel pump draws the fuel from the fuel tank and sends it to the engine. Fuel filter should always be replaced with pump.
If you are having trouble starting your vehicle it could be related to a charging system failure or fuel delivery failure.
Failures are often due to overheating or age. Cylinder heads should be inspected and machined.
May need to lift vehicle and clean previous leaks to locate exact leak. Rubber seals with age will crack and begin to leak.

$65 (most vehicles). Coolant flush and fill with factory recommend coolant. Most require green coolant. For GM vehicles, Dex-Cool (orange) may be required. Some newer makes and models require blue coolant.
Warm coolant from the engine circulates through the radiator & reduces the temperature of the coolant before reentering the engine. Recommend replacement right away when leaking, clogged or damaged, before severe engine damage from overheating occurs.
The integrity of shock absorbers is essential to maintaining tire contact with the road & providing passenger comfort. Both front or rear shocks are replaced at the same time. Recommend replacing when leaking, damaged or every 50-80k.
