Readiness monitors are something we, as inspection stations deal with more often than not. Explaining to customers what they are, how it works and why the vehicle can not pass the emissions test can be a challenge at times. The way we explain it is this. Say the power goes out in your house, in this case the battery in your car has been disconnected or the check engine light was cleared of its trouble codes you have to then go around your house and reset all of your clocks, your stove, microwave etc. In this case this is where the car needs to be driven to reset all of it monitors. Just a quick explanation of readiness monitors. Have a good weekend everyone.
This is a follow up of last weeks video of this 2010 Mini Cooper S. Enjoy 😁
2019 was a great year. Our last job of the year was replacing 4 tires for a family that are traveling back to New York and we were so glad we could get them back home safely.
We couldn't do it without the continued support from our AWESOME customers too. We look forward to working with everyone in 2020!
Public transportation is needed in upper bucks county. Could you spare a few minutes of your time to take this survey? https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BCPublicTransitSurvey?fbclid=IwAR3m-92qPP6E5AKOdL9kJZW9yNdLY4TTWzjOZX_1S8zc51j54iA9iP0N33g
The Bucks County Planning Commission on behalf of the County Commissioners, has created a public opinion survey to assess the public transportation needs of the Upper Bucks County area helping to determine if pursuing implementation of an improved public transit system is a worthwhile endeavor.
I hope this video helps folks understand why shops have a diagnostic fee. We want to nail it the first time without tossing parts that aren't needed.
Wishing you holidays filled with fun and laughter, and very best wishes for a prosperous new year.
I would also like to take a moment to recognize a few good people that help make your experience here at Auto Repair by Mike a good one.
Sarah is our service consultant. She answers the phone about 10,000 times a day, quotes the work, orders parts and does so many other things to assist with the day to day operations and brings a positive outlook on any situation and SOMEHOW keeps me sane throughout the day :) She joined the team in January of last year.
Jason and I have been friends for over 20 years. He is my right hand man and knows exactly what needs to be done. His anticipation of the next step and attention to detail is what makes him stand out. Jason began here in September of last year.
Susan joined us in July of this year and plays the role of office manager. She has over 30 years of managerial experience. She keeps the numbers in order, pays bills and does a lot of my dirty work (inside the office of course) She is also my mother-in-law so watch what you say!! 😂😁
Happy Holidays from all of us at Auto Repair by Mike!
What you see here is an "FPDM" (fuel pump driver module) In short, this module controls the fuel pumps voltage so it can maintain optimal fuel pressure and delivery. This module is located above the spare tire and is secured right to the frame on this Ford F150 pickup truck. Dirt, corrosion and road debris ate away at the back of this module exposing the electrical portion. When this happens the truck can exhibit a "crank no start" condition. This vehicle was towed to us because it would not start but it started right up when we began to work on it and had no drive ability symptoms whatsoever. Pretty crazy to think that it ran with the module in this condition. It did, however have a diagnostic trouble code that led us to test the communication line between the FPDM and the PCM. The faulty FPDM prevented the PCM from receiving a confirmation signal confirming that the FPDM did in fact drive the fuel pump.
The new part came with updated hardware to space the module away from direct contact on the frame to hopefully not have this problem again. No matter how you look at it, the placement of this module could have been better from the start.
Please work 😂
From the crew at Auto Repair by Mike we wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
Do whatcha gotta do!!
Garage kept too!
Happy Veterans Day to all who have served in our armed forces!
There's an exhaust manifold in there somewhere 🙄
We are replacing it today on this 2014 Ford Expedition because it has a hairline crack at the bottom of it. This causes an exhaust leak which is a serious safety concern. Exhaust gasses that enter the passenger compartment are a serious problem. Glad we are fixing that today!
We won't be as annoying as these guys but we can say IT'S TIME FOR INSPECTION!!! Don't put it off and risk getting pulled over. As a friendly reminder you have 90 days to get your inspection and emissions tests done and WE ARE HERE TO HELP with that. Give us a call today to set this up!

The factory recommended tire pressure is a “cold” pressure. The engineers know the pressure will rise with heat, and if you are using the same size and brand the car was born with, no worries. But if you change the tires, you need to make sure the maximum allowable pressure for that tire (also printed on the tire sidewall) gives you some headroom as the tire heats up.
The only way to know how much margin you have is to stop and take a reading on a hot day after some time at highway speeds.

Did this pesky light come on recently? It is to remind you that one of your tires has low air pressure. During a cold snap your tires can lose 1 psi of air for every 10 degrees the temperature drops.
It happens every year.

Happy 107th Anniversary to this fine establishment!
I remember riding my bike to Sines as a kid and getting penny candy, looking at all the model planes and enjoying a Coke from the barrel. Stopped in for lunch at the counter not too long ago too.
What is a memory you have of Sines 5 &10?
Our store in pictures through the years. Unfortunately, we have no photos of the original store. Our great-grandfather opened his store at 217 W. Broad St. on this day in 1912. Happy 107th anniversary to us!
Which one would you want the most?
We're into the first week of August but did you forget about your inspection? We forgive you if you did 🤣
Give us a shout and we'll get you legal again!
