Check this out! A customer comes in to us with a P0128 code on his truck, Coolant Temperature Below Regulating Threshold. Common enough and after doing the regular checks we decide to replace his thermostat. When we open it up, we find a NAIL stuck in to the thermostat, holding it open! Where did that come from?!

"Car Air Conditioner Doesn't Work" OK, it's time (past time!) to get started on air conditioning repair again. I have a number of things that I've written already on my blog in this regard. (Of course I do! It's Phoenix! We don't do at all well without AC here!) I'll link to a few of these over time, but here's the first one.

A question I get all the time: What's the difference between synthetic and conventional motor oils and why is one thought to be better than the other. This gentleman explains it better than I ever could. He has a lot of automotive engineering type videos well worth watching.

Ford has a recall on some of their F-150 trucks that affects some of our customers. Here's a link to an article from CBS news you may want to read.

Here's a good article from Bankrate.com about the true cost of maintenance or the failure to perform maintenance on your vehicle. It's a long read but worthwhile. This is why we make the recommendations we do.

So your #airconditioning   isn't blowing the air like it used to huh? Could be just a plugged cabin filter! This one came out of a truck that belongs to an agricultural chemicals company and it was particularly bad. If you wonder about your AC, come on by. Let's check it out!

Ooops! You're not supposed to be able to see the inside of your transfer case! What happened here is a failed CV joint on the front drive shaft of the customers Jeep. The vibration eventually led to the catastrophic failure you see here.

There's more than one reason to replace an air filter! This is the air box in a heavy duty truck. The air filter is only supposed to be replaced when a gauge shows it to be clogged. What you see here is dust blowing past the seals on the air filter and right in to the engine. Very bad juju!

This one's too funny not to post: the harmonic balancer came unwound on this old truck and began to rattle. Rather than fix it, he figured he'd just tie the offending part up with some wire. Where do you start with this?!

I'm thinkin' it's time to post another #airconditioning  article but being a basically lazy guy I'll just post a link to one I've already written. No use doing the same job twice you know.
