How far will you go to find your wedding ring. A customer lost hers down the front defrost vents. We found it at the bottom of the evaporator. We had to completely remove the evaporator from the vehicle and separate it to get the ring.

Before installing an engine, we inspect them. This engine we found a crack were the motor mount attaches. This engine was well taken care of, the timing was done recently along with the VC gaskets. The valves were clean of oil and the cams looked good as if they had regular oil changes.

This crack must have happened during the accident.

Many cars have a timing belt that needs to be changed every 100K miles or 10 years. This is often neglected and could end in a catastrophic engine failure.

Here is a picture of an idler pulley (part of the timing components that need to be changed along with the belt) that failed on a 2005 Chevy Aveo, along with a good one for comparison. This failure bent all 16 valves in the engine and required the engine to be replaced.
