Speedy Fix (Shaw) Auto Repair Shop

After the pathetic service of Class A Motorcraft on the faulty installation of the fuel filter and fuel pump of my Toyota Vios, I decided to have my car towed to Speedy Fix on Shaw Boulevard in Mandaluyong to have it fixed in a jiffy

Speedy Fix fixed my car in an hour due to improper installation of the fuel filter gasket by Class A Motorcraft Banawe that resulted to not starting problem caused by loss of fuel pressure.

I also had my rear power window repaired by Speedy Fix that they did so by just cleaning the power window motor and gears.

After about a month my power window malfunctioned again but I didn't have the time to bring it back to Speedy Fix due to my busy schedule.

About three months later, I experienced problem starting my car that looked like a low battery problem but it always starts.

I asked my wife to bring it to the battery shop around the corner, where I bought the Outlast battery, and had it tested. It was found to be fully-charged and so I ruled out a problem with the alternator or grounded electrical system that's causing the hard-starting problem.

Decided to bring it to Speedy Fix again to check the starting problem and also the power window. The mechanic on duty diagnosed it to be either a battery problem (that I contested since the battery's been cleared to be fine) or faulty electrical wiring that's draining my car battery and is out of Speedy Fix's "expertise" and so recommended my car to be checked at an auto electrical shop.

I requested my wife to bring it to Wizzard Auto Electrical shop on Tomas Morato in Quezon City but she can't find the shop being a typical direction-challenged woman that she is. Decided instead to have it checked by an auto electrician and specifically pointed him my suspicion that there's a problem with the starter motor that's causing the starting problem.

It turned out the vios' starter motor only needed cleaning of electrodes. Dirty motor contacts cleaned and it's now starting in one click. Note that a motor that's not turning looks like a short circuit that's why it looked like a drained battery where even my digital gauge blacked out due to lack of electric short introduced by the nearly stuck starter motor.

All in all, problems like misdiagnosis happens all the time (for it's best to look for second or third opinions on problems that may be costly for you). At least Speedy Fix fixed my faulty power window almost three months after they looked at it (good thing I still have my receipt) for free probably covered by warranty.

This post has some negative feedback on Speedy Fix but overall I'm satisfied with them. Would I recommend SpeedyFix to my peers and friends? I already did. One of them just had his car running with Royal Purple synthetic oil from them and I may follow suit.
