In this section we provide information and solutions to common car problems. In this way you may be able to get your car fixed and thus accomplish the purpose as well.

Because of the many different things going on at the same time when your engine is running, and because modern engines have become so complicated, rather than guess what is wrong and possibly throw money away, spend the money to have a professional run a full computerized engine analysis.
Rough idling, misfiring...
If you are experiencing rough idling, misfire, or simply poor power it pays to get a complete analysis.
Complete engine analysis
You will receive a full print out detailing the condition of the engine.
With a good honest mechanic you will be able to make the decisions as to what MUST be fixed, what can wait and what you need to start saving for.
This will add years of life to your vehicle.
