Welcome back to another edition of the blog! This week has flown by, and it's been busy...which is business as usual. Brandon is on vacation, and Nick and his family just welcomed their newest addition to the family on Tuesday! Graham Eli Howard was born on October 8th and is happy and healthy! Congratulations to Nick and his family! We cannot wait to meet sweet baby Graham! Let's jump right into some of the work that's going on this week! We've got two X5s and two 2002s! So maybe this week's blog post title is a stretch, but it'll have to do, as I've only had one cup of coffee this morning! ;) We'll start things off with this 2008 BMW 750Li. She came in running a bit rough and had a squeaky belt. While in reverse, this bimmer would rev up and act a little strange. We diagnosed the squeaking belt, removed and replaced both belts, as well as the tensioner and idler pulley.
Rough running issues brought in this monacoblau metallic 2007 BMW 335xi:
We removed and replaced the DMTL on this titansilber metallic 2002 X5 4.4i. What's a DMTL? Great question! The simplest answer is that it's an emissions device, which tests for leaks in the fuel emissions system by putting pressure in the fuel tank to then see if it leaks out.
Our second X5, a kalaharibeige 2004 X5 3.0i, came in with a few items to be diagnosed: coolant level light, side warning lights, and inoperable door handle carrier. She also needed a new upper radiator hose, a new angel eye light bulb, and new rear brake pads and rotors.
This 1991 BMW 325i came in for diagnosis of a fuel leak:
Check out this 1981 VW Rabbit L! She's in for an oil change, diagnosis of rear lights, and a steering and suspension inspection, along with a few other odds and ends:
The 2002's were side by side on the lifts! The '72 Inka
And the '74 Riviera
That's a wrap for this edition! Enjoy a beautiful fall weekend!
