  • I don’t get scared anymore when the word “intermittent” is included in the problem description. I approach these situations as logically as possible.
  • In my shop, it seems like we get hit pretty regularly with the ones that have been parked somewhere.
  • With this month’s issue theme being “Maintenance and Service Repair,” I felt there wasn’t much I could contribute on that topic. After all, I'm a diagnostician not a service tech! Boy, was I wrong!
  • Every so often some of the vehicle problems we encounter can seem sort of paranormal. Even though we keep telling ourselves that there must be some logical explanation to what is causing the fault, the data we are observing is incomprehensible and our usual tried-and-true testing reveals little or no guidance.
  • Following the logic of the system is by far the quickest and most accurate path to the solution of the problem.
  • This month we'll explore a variety of challenges Asian models have brought to our door, including a 2010 Honda Odyssey, a 2003 Toyota Prius, a 2012 Hyundai Elantra, and a 2005 Subaru Forester.
  • This Hummer is one vehicle that really stands out in my collection of automotive oddities
