I was heving trouble with a Toyota PU. It would suddenly die as I drove it, and then as mysteriously it would restart. I gave up on the dealer after two tries and a tuneup. I tried a local mechanic who again tuned it and then wanted to retune it as he said that he must not have gotten it right and really only wnated to charge me again. I was directed to "the guy on the circle". John said to leave it for a couple of days and he would try ot find the problem. When I went back he told me that it was an electronic partin hte ignition. He said that he had a part that another customer had ordered and payed for and had installed it and now it worked fine. The new part would cost about $200 but the person who had ordered the part hadn't been back in several months and the whole repair would cost me $50 if I didn't want a brand new part. That was 20 yrs ago and I wouldn't take my vehicles anywhere else.

These guys were so good that I almost hated to get rid of my 1997 Toyota pick up!
