3 months old about 3,000 miles driven

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your PT Cruiser yourself? What have you tried so far?

Car runs great, just got the nail in it and it was repair. the concern is the circular scuff mark around the tire.

that is correct

it is called run flat damage when a tire has been driven with very low or no air the side wall can be damaged in 1/4 mile or under

if there is any sidewall damage or when they dismount the tire any rubber on the inside it will have to get a new tire i am sorry to say

if its holding air usually it is ok for a few days or so but if there was alot of sidwall damage it needs to be changed as soon as possible as the sidewall is weak

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.
