Well folks we are closed, but one of our mechanics remains at the same location. If you would like some work done please call All American Tire @ (931) 221-0275 next door to our old location, or show up in person to continue to have your European car serviced, and also to continue buying parts.

The garage is in the middle of some roofing work and other renovations right now, but Tom and Bob, and the other All American guys should still be able to help you with your import auto needs to include your Classic VW needs as well.

If I can get Facebook to cooperate I will be moving management of this page to All American.

For those of you who have noticed the VW Beetle parked on the roof will be going back to it's usual parking place in the near future.

To all of our past customers I would like to say thank you for your patronage and wish you all the good things in life. May God bless you all.
Dennis

Hello All. We are closing down the Shop. For all our Early VW Customers we are laying out a bunch of Air-Cooled VW parts New, and used for cheap. So if you are in the neighborhood stop on by and see what we have. Remember. It will be cheap. I am even amazed at some of the odd ball used stuff coming out of the attic. Thank you for looking.

The 2019 Mini Cooper Is So British It Will Set Up Colonies And Has Very Strong Opinions About Cricket

The current generation of Mini Cooper launched way back in 2014, so now it’s time for an update. Here’s the bad news: it’s not getting any major changes, like the dual clutch gearbox option seen in other markets. But on the bright side, it’s getting more British. A lot more British.

Not sure how many more days of deep freeze we will have here in the Clarksville area this year but we have already seen one frozen motor due to not enough, or lack of any coolant concentration in an engine.
A gallon of coolant and an hour of labor to drain and fill an engine cooling system is cheap insurance verses replacing an engine be cause it cracked from expanding ice.
Even if it just pushes out a freeze plug, (your engine's last defense) if the transmission has to be removed to replace the freeze plug then you could still be looking at 15 hours of labor to replace a $2.99 freeze plug
If you don't know what shape you are in I will be glad to check your freeze protection free of charge, or better yet show you how. Only takes a few minutes to find out. Just come in and ask for Dennis or Nathen.

Ya'all keep warm out there.

On the last episode of Mercedes-Maybach meets Pebble Beach, we watched the impossibly long nose and sleek shape stop (foot) traffic. This year, Mercedes is teasing its newest Vision Six concept that they'll show off at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance via an officially released video...

We have had one of our counter guys , Nathen have a pretty bad motorcycle accident. This has moved me from doing electrical check-outs to helping out at the counter more. In the near term we are going to pass on some electrical work until we are able to take care of some of the back-log. If you already have a car here for computer/electrical trouble shooting please bare with us or maybe take it to another facility if you choose. That said I would like to thank all of our customers for their patience, and their patronage.

We are looking for a full time auto tech. Euro experience would be great but we wouldn't count you out for lack of it. Natural aptitude however, is a must. If you had to take your bicycle to a bike shop as a kid to adjust your brakes you probably shouldn't apply. If you have a bunch of DUIs you will probably be wasting your time. We are at 1327 college Street, phone number is (931) 648-3185. Drop by sometime and ask for Dennis.

If you pull a trailer you gotta watch this. This illustrates what happens if your trailer tongue is not loaded with enough weight. Could make for an interesting drive.

A FYI on VW, and Audi 2.0T FSI Engines Fuel Pump Tappet and Camshaft Wear Problems. We have been seeing quite a few of the earlier VW and Audi 2.0 FSI engines with failed fuel pump tappets. That in itself doesn't sound so bad but when the tappet fails it kills the intake camshaft, the mechanical high pressure fuel pump and of course the tappet. For a couple of hundred bucks you can avoid a 1500 dollar repair by getting in front of this design flaw and replace that fuel pump tappet before it turns into a nightmare. If you would like to know if you are affected by this curse give us a call @ (931) 648-3185.

Baby It's Cold Outside! Just a tidbit here for an FYI. If your heat is not being all it can be or takes forever to start working your engine's thermostat may be sticking open. If it doesn't close your engine will not heat up fast enough or maybe at all. This spells poor milage and worse yet no heat. On newer cars there is a trouble code that can be picked up with a scan. Older cars? Its pretty much a best guess taking into account some other symptoms. On some cars poor heat can just mean the coolant is low. If that is the case there may be a leak. What ever the case don't just add pure water. Always add coolant correctly mixed. We are getting into some engine block busting weather. Keep warm out there.

Everything You Need to Know about the VW Diesel-Emissions Scandal

Pretty good article on the VW diesel SNAFU http://blog.caranddriver.com/everything-you-need-to-know-about-the-vw-diesel-emissions-scandal/

General Motors and Toyota had their massive scandals. Now it’s Volkswagen’s turn. The company, which owns 70 percent of the U.S. passenger-car diesel market, is in major trouble for cheating on diesel-emissions tests. After years of promoting “Clean Diesel” as an alternative to hybrid and electric v...

Starting to see control arm bushings wear out on some of the older Mini Coopers. When you hit your brakes and you feel a thunk in the front around the wheels, the rear bushings on the front lower control arms are likely the problem. We have the special tools required to eliminate removing the front sub-frame to do this job. This saves you money. We also have most all the special tools to properly set up the camshaft timing, which is needed for most all cylinder head, and timing chain work. Let us be your alternative to driving or towing your Mini Cooper to Nashville for most all of your service and repair needs.

I have often heard mechanics state that if they could catch an automotive engineer in a dark alley... Well you get t the picture. And I hate to gripe because we make our living working on cars. Back in the day when a light bulb, headlight bulb, whatever blew you would buy a new one and replace it. Not so many years ago I would sell a bulb and replace it in the parking lot for the price of the bulb. Now I go out and take a look and then consult a labor guide because in some cases the headlight assembly must be removed to access the bulb after the bumper cover is removed. Some of these can take a couple of hours only to find that the exterior lighting computer is on the fritz and it must go to the dealer to program the computer to the car. Why do we need a computer to control a bulb? All so you can see a little message stating that there is a light bulb out. So at dealer prices your headlight bulb costs $200.00 to replace in labor only plus the price of the scan ect... This is progress....

Been seeing mid 2000s BMWs with N51 Engines that when the drive belt comes off due to a pulley bearing failing or belt breaking where the belt is sucked into the engine past the crankshaft seal. This equals a sudden stop for the engine. Weird thing is the cams slip on the chain gears and keep turning for about a quarter rotation. Now the engine is out of time and the oil pan has to come off to clean out the belt debris. This all amounts to a couple of thousand bucks to set the cam timing up and drop the oil pan. Haven't seen one bend valves yet but if that were to happen that $2000.00 repair bill will double fast. The moral of this post is keep your BMW N51 engine's belts and pulleys in good shape.

Awwwww. The kids are going to have to holler "Punchbuggy Red" instead of "Punchbuggy Rust"! My son is sad. :-)
