Over the phone, they promptly (immediately) quoted $120.00 for a throttle-body clean-out. They heard I had information on the car and agreed to give it a full diagnostic without charge, stating, "You've already paid for it." (by way of a NV State smog station and an area VW dealership). They called me at approx 4:30 with their findings. Cylinder #2 plug had become bad as its plug wire was bad. Additionally, the car was running rough due to a bad vacuum hose (I recall the car had a bad vacuum hose during approx. 2004 and an other area dealership repaired same). When I picked up the car the next day, they had effected the plug, wire and hose repairs (total costs for that service: $120.00) while also providing three more service recommendations, in order of need/diligence, broken down into an affordable cost schedule (they heard I had an affordability situation). They confirmed front brake pads and rotors are still good and ready for service. Without prompt, they specifically identified exact parts needing service to eliminate the turning sound (has nothing to do with the rack and pinion and/or struts). Note: The car had a rear wheel bearing re-build during 2001 as related to a freeway pot-hole incident. And finally, a new finding to this service shop (one I suspected, mentioned to the area VW dealership, repeatedly, and was denied), a transmission leak relating to the differential seal and housing). Picked up the car it has been running well (better than it has in months).
