How to Help Make Your Service and Maintenance Quick and Efficient 

  • Please don’t rush us to make an on-the-spot diagnosis. We need time to analyze the problem to give you accurate feedback. We will call you with our diagnosis, the course of action we recommend, and an estimate of service costs before we begin any work.
  • Please be sure to leave a telephone number where you are reachable. If we cannot reach you for approval, we won’t begin the work, and that could delay your service. To avoid that inconvenience, you may borrow one of our pagers (free), so we can page you when your estimate is ready.
  • Please review and make sure you understand all our policies regarding labor rates, guarantees, and acceptable methods of payment.
  • Feel free to ask as many questions as you need. Do not be embarrassed to request definitions of technical terms.

Important Notices and Information

overheating issues

Overheating Issues

For all 850, SV70, S80, 960, we highly recommend that the thermostat be replaced at the 60K service, for the reason that if the thermostat fails, which it often does after about 60K miles, it will fail in a closed position causing in most cases an instant overheating. This primarily effects vehicles made prior to 2002. When the thermostat is being replaced make sure that you get a thermostat that by design will fail in an open position, - this will cause the engine to operate at a too low temperature, but it will not by overheat, which can potentially destroy your engine.

engine issues

Check Engine Light

If the engine light comes on in the instrument panel, it could mean that there is some trouble coming up. However, it could also be that at your last fill-up you didn't put on the gas cap correctly. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU PUT THE GAS CAP ON PROPERLY AFTER EACH FILL-UP. This is so that the fuel vapor recovery system can work as intended. If the problem persists, schedule service as soon as possible by calling 408-379-4822.
