Engine Intake Leak

Engine Repair Shop
5 5 1
I just want to say that it has been almost six months since getting my Chevy 1500 back from Last Chance Auto Repair. My truck was burning a lot of antifreeze in the cold and kept seeing a coolant low light coming on. I was adding almost a half a gallon every week. Last Chance quickly diagnosed my issue and told me the upper and lower intake manifold gaskets would need to be replaced. I had them do that work and also asked they tune up and replace any other cheap gaskets, plugs, filters etc as they were already going to be removing a big portion of my motor and I knew a tune up was due. When I got it back from them the engine sounded better, ran smoother not burning as much gas and best part of all has not burned an ounce of anti-freeze in the last 6 months. We have had some very cold days over the past few weeks and the reserve tank under the hood looks perfect! Thanks for the good work and as always I will recommend you guys to anyone!

Cylinder Heads

Just wanted to say I was really pleased with these guys. This was my first experience with them and deffinately not my last. I needed some cylinder head repair and the heads came out great! Ron really does great work. Ron, his son, and his wife were a pleasure to deal with! It's nice having an actual "mom and pop" shop in the area at a good price. Thanks again I highly reccomend them! -Scott

Failed Emissions

Engine Repair Shop
5 5 1
I took a 2002 Windstar van to be serviced after failing emissions test in Joliet and for some other performance related issues like check engine light on and van pretty much running like crap. The mechanics at last chance not only correctly diagnosed and fixed the emissions issues which were due to leaking intake manifold gasket and 2 vacuum hose issues but also found many other things that needed fixing like leaking power steering hose due to a previous mechanic using wrong type of hose. They also found small wires going back to ECU from engine to be corroded and causing electrical codes to be thrown due to shorts, the holes in wires where they were corroded was from a previous repair shop I took it to probing wires while troubleshooting but not capping off holes with epoxy and tape. These guys at Last Chance found 7 bad wires that they showed me were majorly damaged and had green corrosion coming out of the holes where they were probed. These repairs did cost me way more than I wanted to but Ron the owner worked out a great deal with me and I feel it was totally fair for the amount of h ours they spent fixing the van. Now that I have it back it runs like brand new, check engine light is off idles great and best part is that it finally passed the stupid government emissions test/shakedown!
