  • Performance Benefits of Slotted And Drilled Rotors

    March 2,2017

    Why Choose Slotted Or Drilled Brake Rotors?


    One of the most important systems on every vehicle on the road today is the brakes because going fast, or even moving at all, isn’t fun or efficient if you aren’t able to stop. A properly functioning brake system is vital not only to vehicle control, but also safety. It won’t matter at all how well your car runs if you can’t slow down enough to navigate a turn or avoid running into hazards on the road. Having a well-serviced braking system helps you control your stopping distance, but also gives invaluable peace of mind in addition to better control of the overall driving experience knowing you can brake late when needed.

  • 1998 – 2004 Audi and Volkswagen Control Arm and Ball Joint Failure

    October 24,2016



    With such a complex suspension, repairs are often difficult, time consuming, and expensive. Many A4, A5, Allroad, and Passat owners will try to save money by only replacing the single control arm which exhibits the most wear. But this rarely, if ever, restores the stability of the entire suspension and many of our customers become discouraged when the symptoms of a worn suspension persist.

  • 2001-2006 BMW 3-series Ignition Coil Failure

    October 7,2016



    The engine compartment is a harsh environment on any vehicle. But in a high-performance German sport sedan like the BMW 3-series, it is even more so. And the incredible technology that these cars use to manage fuel delivery, timing, and ignition are often the components that break down most often. The heat, vibration, and moisture under the hood can be very damaging to the sensitive electronics that these systems use.

  • 2002-2008 Subaru Turbocharger Failure

    October 7,2016



    Even cars with a meticulous oil-change history are not immune to turbocharger oil starvation as fresh oil alone is not enough to prevent it. Most of the failures we see are because oil starvation when the banjo bolt filter clogs and cuts off lubrication. Eventually, the turbo will fail and cause severe damage within the intake tract of your motor.

  • 2002-2011 MINI Cooper Power Steering Pump Failure

    September 30,2016



    The 2002-2011 MINI Cooper and MINI Cooper S are compact cars designed not only for economy but to also offer a fun driving experience, so neither a pure hydraulic system nor a complete electrically assisted steering rack would be an appropriate choice for MINI engineers. Instead, the MINI Cooper uses a different system that is a hybrid of both hydraulic and electric steering systems which they call an Electro-Hydraulic Power Assisted Steering. This type of system uses an electric motor to drive the hydraulic power steering pump instead of a belt from the engine giving you the best of both worlds: it frees up some horsepower by not being driven off the engine belts but still gives you the supreme steering feel that is so important in a well-handling and fun-to-drive small car.

  • 2003-2014 Chevy/GMC Truck & SUV AC Compressor Failure

    September 28,2016



    If your part of the country is hot even just a few days out of the year, you already know how important the AC system is when you’re driving. Driving around town in stop-and-go traffic won’t give you enough cooling breeze even with the windows down and a long commute in the heat can leave you sweaty and your clothes stained. Worse still is hot summer rain without functioning AC. In most modern cars the AC system is also employed as a dehumidifier and when it’s broken you can end up with foggy windows that are not only annoying, but also incredibly dangerous when you’re trying to see well enough to drive.

  • 1996-2002 Audi A4 1.8t Turbocharger Problems

    September 7,2016

    Audi A4 1.8t Turbocharger Problems


    The Audi A4 had the distinction of being the first vehicle from the Volkswagen Group to be powered by the now legendary 1.8 liter 20 valve turbocharged engine which has gone on to be used in nearly every model line from each of Volkswagen’s major brands. If you think about it, there probably isn’t a day that goes by where you don’t see a car powered by one of these engines. In fact, Volkswagen is still producing it to this day while it continues to provide motive power in all of their brands as well as their industrial offerings. There’s even a version that is used in the FIA Formula Two Championship capable of 450hp!
