Reggie’s Motorworks: Proud to be a Certified Bosch Car Service Center

It’s March, and the countdown to Spring has begun!  Now we just need all of this snow to melt, and we’ll be on our way!  Last week’s blog was a quick one, so we’ve got a bit more in store for you today to jump start your weekend!
Aside from events we’ve recently discussed, like go-karting, BMW performance driving education, and our Open House, we’ve been planning our annual Swap Meet.  The past few years, we’ve endured rain and snow.  This year, we’re pretty sure we won’t have snow…we’ll be announcing details soon!  

Ready for some cars?  Let’s do this!

A new crank case vent elbow and hose were needed on this dark gray 2003 VW Passat GLS:

Diagnosis of the intake manifold runner flap brought in this 2007 Audi A8:



A check engine light in this titansilber metallic 2003 BMW M3 needed diagnosis:


This e30, a 1987 BMW 325 in zinnoberrot, came to us for a timing belt job, a water pump, thermostat, front oil seals, oil change, repair of a rusted brake line, and to rebuild a shifter with a short shift kit:

Exhaust leak repair was on the list for this e36, a ’98 323is:



The owner of this 1983 VW Rabbit GTI thought the engine timing might be off.  We found that the diesel pump was only held in place by 1 of 6 bolts.  We’re tracking down the correct bolts, and we’ll be doing some further diagnostics once we get them in.

A leaking vacuum pump and leaking gaskets for the oil filter housing brought this 2006 Audi A4 Quattro to the shop.  She also got an oil change.

When I visited the shop this week, Reggie was working on disassembling and detailing the throttle bodies for the 2002’s S14.  I also got to see the S14 on the engine stand after he detailed the valve cover.  If you follow our Facebook page, you probably saw a before and after photo that Reggie posted earlier this week.
