The AC compressor that he replaced stopped working three days later. Peter came back out to diagnose the problem and sure enough the compressor stopped working. Two days later he installed a new one, but it too wasn't working. Peter determined that the condensor was clogged which is why first compressor failed. He immediately ordered a new condensor which would not be available until after lunch. A few hours later Peter returned and installed the new part outside in my parking lot when it was 106 degrees in the sun. Since the compressor was in warranty he replaced it and didn't charge me for the new part nor did he not charge me the labor to install it. He also gave me a fair price on the new condensor. Peter is honest and fair. He is not your ordinary mechanic out to see how much he can make off you. The rates are very reasonable.

The anti thief system on this car is called PATS or passive anti thief system. The use of a key with a chip in it is needed to disable the alarm when you go to start the car. If the...
Q: Can you reset or bypass traction control?
Answered by Jay
If you just put on new tires only in the rear and not in the front then the tires need to be checked to see if there is a difference in the tire height. This will cause the wheel sensors...
