Volkswagen EOS Flat Battery

We worked on a Volkswagen EOS recently which had a battery that was going flat.

A scan was done to check the faults and some test schedules were done. We pulled the fuses one by one to isolate the current draw and the same was done to the ECU. Next we carried out VAG test schedules and found the comfort module was damaged by the rear boot comfort close. We replaced the comfort module, tyres and battery during the time the work was being completed.

BMW 320i Exhaust Smoke and Leaks

Below is a BMW 320i which had smoke coming from the exhaust and a number of leaks.

For the smoke issue we suspected it was a valve stem seal leak so we put in some Visco Plus oil to retest.

We then raised the vehicle on the hoist to inspect for oil leaks and found them coming from the oil filter housing gaskets and transmission pan. The parts were replaced and the engine was degreased which fixed the issue as no more leaks were found on the test drive.

The next job involed replacing the transmission pan, gasket and electrical plug as required. We filled the transmission, readapted and cleared all the fault codes. The vehicle was raised on the hoist after a test drive to reinspect for any leaks which there were none.

While checking for the oil leaks, we also inspected for a coolant leak  which was found to be from the hose between the expansion tank and top radiator hose. Once this part was replaced we carried out a brake fluid flush.

Alfa Romeo 156 Service and Repairs

An Alfa Romeo 156 came into our workshop earlier this week to get a minor service done and some repairs.

The service was done first which involved replacing the oil and filter. This was done according to the log book schedule and current km on the car. When checking over the vehicle we noticed that the brake pads needed to be replaced. The brake fluid was also adjusted as required.

Other repairs included replacing the battery and clearing the error codes and some panel repairs. The engine light on the dashboard was the final issue to look at. For this issue we scanned the vehicle and found the up and down stream oxygen sensors had present errors. These sensors were removed to inspect the catalytic converter which was ok. Measuring the oxygen sensors found an open circuit in both of them. These sensors were replaced as required and the error codes cleared. A road test was then completed without issue.
