Services Performed
  • WE NOTICED THE LUBE STICKER IS MISSING SO WE DON'T KNOW WHEN IT IS DUE. WE FOUND THE LEFT FRONT MARKER LIGHT TO NOT BE WORKING AND WE CHECKED THE BULB AND THAT IS GOOD SO IT WOULD NEED TO BE DIAGNOSED. AS FAR AS THE ROAD TRIP GOES THERE SHOULD BE NO PROBLEMS. THE NOISE IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT IS DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE WHERE IT IS COMING FROM. WITH A STETHOSCOPE WE CAN HERE NOISE FROM THE A/C COMPRESSOR, THE ALTERNATOR AND THE IDLER PULLEY BUT WE CAN NOT DETERMINE WHAT THE CAUSE IS. THE TENSIONER IS QUIET WHEN THE NOISE IS AUDIBLE. WE WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE NOISE GETS WORSE TO DETERMINE WHAT IS CAUSING IT.
