Customer Question
We recently moved to SW...
We recently moved to SW Florida and consequently use the air almost all the time. Love this 1008 cruiser but when idling with air on, there is a horrible intermittent shuddering that makes me think it will die and air runs hot. As soon as I get moving, the problem is gone, until the next light. Sure hope you can help. It is currently at the dealer but they say there is nothing wrong.

hi,I would have them check the motor and transmission mounts .
when the ac is on,this puts a lot of stress on the motor/motor mounts
if the idle is where it should be then the motor mounts are a good thing to look at .and most likely the issue ....

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.

Thank you so much for your answer. My initial estimate was $325; I got it done for $100 - part and labor.
