The owner brought the vehicle in because the mode operation of the heater wasn't working. So the mode basically controls where the heating system or air conditioning system blows the air. Whether it's gonna blow it on the defroster or in your face or on the floor or all of the above. There's basically a motor and a door and a flap that operates that system.

So a pre-purchase inspection is something that you would do when you're buying a used car. Very important thing to do. There are so many things that can be wrong with a car that you'll never know of until you have someone look at it. So it's a highly important thing to do. It costs a bit of money, but it can save you thousands of dollars in the long run. We did one on a BMW i8 for a customer who was looking to buy this car.

This is a new service that you're offering and we've been able to do some key reprogramming through having other mobile service companies come to our shop for certain vehicles. We also will take vehicles to dealers to have them programmed, but now we actually have tools and equipment to reprogram most make and model keys in our shop.

The power steering wasn't operating, so when you turn the wheel, it was very stiff to turn. And I believe there may have been some noises associated with it as well, but the owner's complaint was the power steering wasn't operating.
May 8, 2023
This vehicle came to our shop and the client's concern was that one of the speakers was making some pretty hideous crackling noises and wasn't making the music listening experience pleasurable. So some repairs were needed.
May 1, 2023
So this vehicle came to our shop with a coolant leak. Not a surprise on a Range Rover or many cars for that matter to not be too hard on Range Rovers. But yeah, it came with a coolant leak concern.
Apr 24, 2023
The owner's complaint was that the brakes were making some noise when you apply the brakes. So that's why it came to our shop.
Apr 17, 2023
So the customer's complaint was a noise coming from the front of the engine. Thought it was maybe a belt noise or a bearing noise. It was like a kind of a high pitch, sort of screechy kind of noise. The description wasn't exactly perfect, but there was definitely a noise coming from the front of the engine. It was intermittent and mostly when the engine was hot. So that was what we were tasked to find.
Apr 10, 2023
This this vehicle came to our shop with a couple of concerns, but one of them was a fluid leak in the rear. We found that the left rear axle seal coming out of the differential was leaking fluid.
Apr 3, 2023
This vehicle was brought in for a commercial vehicle inspection. Any vehicle, like a taxi, certain vehicles that haul goods over a certain weight or a number of passengers, need to be inspected. So this company that we do this for is a charitable organization. They work with a lot of handicapped people and this van can transport up to eight people. So that requires a commercial vehicle inspection.

This car came to our shop cause the heater blower wasn't turning on. The switch seemed to operate the heater blower, but there was no air being blown. So that's important thing to fix, important thing to have in a car when it's hot or cold. It's good to have it at any temperature.
March 24, 2023
So the vehicle came to our shop with a rough running engine. The owner had been to a couple other shops, but for some reason he really wanted to work with us on addressing his concerns. He'd been to one shop, they'd tested the compression and found one cylinder was bad.
March 20, 2023
The owner brought the vehicle to our shop, basically the engine had developed a misfire. He'd had all the ignition coils and sparked plugs replaced, and still a misfire persisted. The the vehicle wasn't running, the PCM was out. The PCM was bad, powertrain control module. Basically the computer that runs the engine and transmission, it was bad.
March 17, 2023
So the owner had left the vehicle sitting for a couple of months and started driving it. And he noticed that when he would be driving it, especially on higher speeds, there would be this sort of thumping, clicking kind of sound that he figured was kind of coming from the back of the vehicle. So that's how the vehicle came into us. And that's what we proceeded to look at.
March 13, 2023
The vehicle was due for a B service based on mileage and time. And that's that's what we did on the vehicle. That's why it came in.
March 6, 2023
This vehicle came to our shop with a few concerns actually. We did replace the radiator, but it actually came to our shop with a couple concerns. There were some noises and the feel the vehicle didn't quite feel right while driving it at higher speeds.
Feb 27, 2023
This vehicle was towed into our shop with a no start condition. There was a warning on the dash security system and basically it shut out the starting of the vehicle. When we did the steering column wiring inspection, found a number of electrical aftermarket devices hooked into the wiring which is a definite no-no, and a definite cause for problems.
Feb 20, 2023
This vehicle came in for a few maintenance items but today we're talking about the cabin air filter replacement. The vehicle has over 90,000 kilometres.
Feb 13, 2023
So the vehicle was due for a B Service and there was also a few fluids that we'd mentioned to the client and services last time they were in, that would probably need to be done at this point in time. So we did the B Service and changed a few fluids and a cabin air filter at the same time.
Feb 6, 2023
So this vehicle, when the defrost or the air conditioning was turned on, and it's actually cold, we're in Vancouver. It's wintertime. So turning the air conditioning on would really only come on when you turn the defroster on, on this vehicle. It would basically cause the radiator fan to run. It's an electric fan, to run on high speed and it wouldn't shut off until you actually shut the key of the vehicle off and kind of reset it. So it's kind of annoying because you can hear a very loud warring noise coming from the front of the vehicle and it does waste a lot of electrical energy to run the fan on full speed.
Jan 30, 2023
This vehicle came to our shop. It wouldn't start. So it was probably a service and repairs. No start condition. Basically the battery was dead.
Jan 23, 2022
The owner of the vehicle had complained on a highway drive actually up to Whistler, which is near Vancouver. It's a highway drive, it's twisty roads, perfect roads for this kind of car. Notice that, you know, the clutch would slip sometimes when they're accelerating up like on a hill. So that's usually a classic description of a clutch wearing out or being worn out.
Jan 16, 2023
So this vehicle came to us in a couple of different rounds. The first round we scanned it, there was a code for a lean air fuel condition. Did some diagnostic and testing on that and figured based on the fact that there was low fuel mileage, everything we could test on the AirFuel ratio issue. So we completed the work sent the vehicle out the door, and a week later came back and the check engine light was back on again.
Jan 9, 2023
This vehicle came to us because the owner couldn't lock the vehicle because of an issue with the door locks. It was a very irritating issue. Couldn't lock the door and the alarm would go off. So let's unravel the mystery of the front door latch.
