Franks Foreign Auto Repair in Laguna Beach

Gotta say very nice shop + workers!!

I took my TE in to be vacuum checked as they were the only shop around locally that had a leak detection smoke machine... they smoked it and charged me $45....very reasonable.

No offense to most mechanics...but many are foreigners themselves and its always a little annoying trying to understand both them, and worrying that they don't understand you -- Well both mechanics at Franks that were working, I am assuming, were born Americans so I felt comfortable talking to them. Both very cool guys and seemed honest. They had no problem understanding the misfire in my car as other mechanics had trouble understanding how my misfire acts.

He found a leak using the machine in 2 I came back later on in the day when he got the parts in.
They replaced 2 injector rings+ seals + smoked the car for $165. I don't consider that too bad at all.
