Vacations are right around the corner. It’s the time of year where families and old friend get together and slowdown from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The last thing you want though is to spend your vacation week at an auto-repair shop in the middle of nowhere. Regular maintenance will help extend the life of your car but there are a few items you want to pay extra attention to before heading out on a long trip.
Many times, a long trip includes a stretch through a desert or area of the country that’s reaches higher temperatures so you’ll want to check your cooling system. Most cars today use a single, serpentine belt to operate the water pump, alternator, power steering pump and air conditioning compressor rather than a combination of two or three fan belts. These serpentine belts generally have a service life of about 100,000 miles. If you have 100,000 or more miles on your car consider replacing it. A failing belt will give you no warning before it breaks but it will leave you stranded if it does. While you’re having the belt replaced your mechanic can check the condition of the water pump and other devices that you otherwise couldn’t with the belt on.
Also, if you’ve reached or exceeded that 100,000 mile mark have your radiator coolant replaced. Old coolant loses its lubricating ability and is a common cause of water pump bearing failure. In addition, as the coolant ages it becomes more acidic and begins to attack freeze plugs as well as the radiator and other metal areas it contact. Over time it can eat right through the radiator core or heater core and without any notice.
And don’t forget your automatic transmission. If you haven’t done so in a while (or ever) have your transmission serviced before the trip. Old transmission fluid loses its lubricating and cooling properties. It also gives your transmission specialist an opportunity to make sure it’s working properly.

On the early Isuzu NPR’s with a tps code you don’t need to take it to the dealer to have the tps replaced. However after attacking the problem you might want to.
The TPS is located on the gas petal assembly. Remove the whole petal assembly. Now is where to problems really start. Isuzu placed to connect for the tps deep in the dash. It is a huge struggle to get it unplugged and the plugged back in.
Once in it does not require a relearn. Seattle Truck Repair works on Isuzu’s and is here to help. (206) 624-1859
The class action lawsuit was brought on behalf all persons in the United States who purchased or leased, not for resale, any 2005 through 2007 Ford Freestyle or 2005 through 2001 Mercury Montego vehicles equipped with a continuously variable transmission (“CVT” or “CVT Transmission manufactured, distributed, and sold by Ford Motor Company (Defendant”)
As alleged in the complaint, beginning in 2005 Defendant knew or should have known that the Class Vehicles and their CVT Transmission contain one or more design and manufacturing defects that causes them to prematurely breakdown and suffer mechanical failure (”the CVT Defect” or “CVT Transmission Defect”).
A continuously variable transmission is a type of automatic transmission that allegedly provides more useable power, better fuel economy and a smoother driving experience than a traditional automatic transmission. Unlike traditional transmissions, a continuously variable transmission uses a system of pulleys with metal belt or chain running between them which enables the engine to run at its most efficient revolutions per minute (RPM) for a range of vehicle speeds.
When premature breakdown and mechanical failure occurs, the affected Class Vehicles are no longer safe to operate and require repairs costing thousands of dollars. Furthermore, due to the nature of the CVT Transmission Defect, consumers have frequently experienced and will continue to experience unexpected and premature CVT Transmission failure while driving. CVT Transmission failure while driving results in unsafe conditions, including but not limited to loss of forward propulsion, significant delays in acceleration, loud noises coming from the CVT Transmission, Class Vehicles operating in emergency running mode, drivers receiving error messages, stalling, and the inability to use the reverse gear.
These conditions present safety hazard due to the sudden and unexpected transmission failure that Class Vehicles can experience while in operation. The Class Vehicles and their CVT Transmissions can fail, suddenly and unexpectedly, at any time and 4 under any driving condition or speed. Further, sudden loss of forward propulsion and delayed acceleration can have serious effects on handling, stability, acceleration, and maintenance of speed. These conditions and risks can thereby contribute to traffic accidents which can result in personal injury or death.
As alleged, since 2005, Ford has known that the CVT Transmissions were defectively designed, assembled, and manufactured. Rather than alerting Class Members of this safety hazard and offering to repair the Class Vehicles, Ford has concealed this problem from its customers at the time of purchase or lease and thereafter.
Because Ford will not notify Class Members that the CVT Transmission is defective, Plaintiff and Class Members (as well as members of the general public) are subjected to dangerous driving conditions that often occur without warning. As a result of the CVT Transmission Defect, Ford, through its dealers, has also profited by selling replacement parts to Class Members.
As a result of the CVT Transmission Defect contained in the Vehicles, Plaintiff and the Class Members have been harmed and have suffered actual damages in that the Class Vehicles and their CVT Transmissions have failed or are substantially certain to fail during their expected useful life.
Seattle Transmission can work to resolve your CVT transmission problem unlike the dealers.

This another post on the late model Mercedes auto with shifting problems. If you are having problems with your transmission don’t get caught into the trap of taking it to the dealer.

In Seattle call Seattle Transmission Repair at 206-624-1859 and get a free dianostic before you throw away your money on a new transmission that you do not need.
I got a call from a woman in the mid-west looking for information on code 16 that she had in her UD truck. When they started the truck the transmission warning light would flash sixteen times. She could find no information on any such code. To help anyone else that runs into this the simple answer is that code 16 is telling you that there is a code being stored in the computer. It is a simple process the retrieve the codes. Go online and Google how to retrieve the codes. No scanner is needed for this operation. Or you can bring it to Seattle NPR Repair and we will pull the codes and give you options on repair. (206) 624-1859
There is a huge problem with the 722.9 transmission which is used in many of the cars made by Mercedes. I think everyone agrees that it should be a recall but to date it is not a covered repair. To compound this problem owners are forced to have the very expensive repair done at Mercedes. Mercedes will not sell the valvebodys outside their dealers. We have secured a source for the Valvebodys and are able to reprogram them once installed for half the price Mercedes is charging. If your local to the Seattle area and need this repair call us before forking over your hard earned money. Kings Transmission of Seattle. (206) 624-1859.
Replacing a differential pinion seal can be costly. The part is where the rear axle and drive shaft meet. This eases the spinning of the wheels when the axle gears are turned. Due to how important this part is for the vehicle to operate, it is not an uncommon fix. However, the location makes the job quite difficult and is costly to have done.
It isn’t easy to find a shop that does rear end seal repair Seattle drivers can afford. It might cost less money to do this repair yourself, but the time and potential of severe damage makes trying it on your own not worth it. Only those who have taken courses in mechanics should try to fix this on their own, as further damage could make matters far worse.
