The transmission in my Dodge pickup was running hot so I brought it in to have the transmission coolers hot flushed to clean them out .and I figured that I'd have them change the filter and fluid while it was there. apparently they don't have the proper equipment to flush and clean the coolers because they just did the standard flush for a filter and fluid change. and told me that it wasn't overheating, I really doubt that they hooked it to a 12k trailer and pulled some hills to see if it was really not overheating. the service that that they did was fine they just didn't do the service that I asked for. so unfortunately I still need to have the coolers properly cleaned and hot flushed.
The transmission temperature indicator came on when we would travel on the freeway for about 1 hour. Per the car's manual, we would pull over, let the engine idle for a few minutes until the light went off, then take off again. This was a consistent problem that started just recently with 205,000 miles on the car. They suggested it may be a bad sensor (since everything else checked out ok). We had the sensor replaced but have not given the car a real test yet. We did travel to the Snake Pit in Kingston from CdA one evening and the light did not come on (however I don't think that "short" trip qualifies as a genuine test). Lake City Trans service has been top notch so far. If I knew for sure that replacing the sensor was the actual fix for the problem I would give 5 stars. Once I have run the car for a true test of the sensor I'll leave another review. Thanks for your help!!Sadly the car died at the end of 2021, the good news is that the original sensor that we had replaced must have been bad because the transmission temperature indicator never came on again, the car had just over 250,000 miles when it died.
I brought in my 2002 Subaru and they were very honest with me when we discussed what was going on and if it was worth fixing or not. I appreciate that they didn’t pressure me and were straightforward with what was going on.I will definitely bring vehicles to them in the future.
I would give Lake City Auto Care more stars if I could because they went above and beyond to help us out. We are from Cheyenne Wyoming and are here on vacation when our Jeep had an issue in the morning. We tried every Jeep dealership within 100 miles and the best any of them could do was diagnose our Jeep (not fix it) by the end of the day. We went to Lake City and Ben helped us out by getting us in and out in under an hour. We would have paid any amount, but the price was very reasonable (less than the minimum the dealership wanted to just diagnose the problem) nd the Jeep is running like a champ! It is rare to see a company with compassion.
Fantastic service. Fit me in to their very busy repair shop.Dropped off truck at 9 a.m. Friday, got a detailed text of everything they found needed service. Approve or decline each service and send back text. They have been perfect so far. Truck should be ready to go by next Thursday! Will update this post asap.
