The dreaded Check Engine Light

Sometimes displayed as "Service Engine soon"

What this light is telling you is that your car is experiencing an emissions failure. It's not always a big pricey fix, but you don't want to ignore it because you may be causing more damage to your vehicle which will turn into an expensive repair.

If this light starts to blink then you want to stop driving your vehicle immediately.

Have you ever been told that your vehicle needs a "Transmission Fluid Flush"? This is not recommended by most manufactures.

The transmission does need to be serviced, but never flushed. A simple filter replacement and a drain and refill is all that's recommended.

TRANSMISSION SERVICE STARTING AT $175.00

Don't ignore the cry for help

Are your brakes trying to tell you something? Usually the first sign of upcoming brake issues are squeaks and vibrations in your steering wheel and or brake pedal. Don't put off on getting them looked at, your expense for repairs will go up the longer you wait.

BRAKE JOBS STARTING AT $100.00 PLUS PARTS

The hidden dangers

image152

Most modern vehicles, cars and trucks, no longer have a direct view into the radiator. Instead they have a coolant tank or reservoir that you keep an eye on. Well this is one area that the word FLUSH is not a bad one. Todays modern engine are very dependent on the cooling system efficiency. Don't let yours get like the one pictured above.

COOLANT SERVICES STARTING AT $120.00

I THINK I NEED A TUNE UP

image153

Spark Plugs have come a long way in the last 20 years. Using exotic materials and advanced designs along with more sophisticated electronic ignitions systems, replacement intervals have now reached 100k miles or more. That doesn't mean that they don't fail. Some of todays failures are coil and or wire failures or even carbon tracking causing misfires and Check Engine Lights.

TUNE-UP PRICES VERY WIDELY BY VEHICLE , ENGINE , AND MODELS

This weird looking creature known as a differential or rear end sits in the back between your rear wheels. Mostly unseen or heard of. That's why it's often ignored. Although extremely durable it does need service. My recommendation is 100k  miles for light duty or 60k miles for severe duty use.

DIFFERENTIAL SERVICE  STARTING AT $130.00

SYNTHITIC FLUID ADD $60.00

There's no I in TEAM

WOW, batteries have sure come a long way. While lead acid batteries are still common place in todays automobiles, especially for inexpensive battery options, AGM(absorbed glass mat) and GEL batteries are taking over and have definite advantages over the flooded lead acid battery. To keep your vehicle on the ready, replace your battery before it dies. A dying battery can kill your Starter motor and will overtax your Alternator until it dies on you also. These 3 components all work as a team. Keep them in tip-top shape.

Bring vehicle in for Estimate and diagnosis.


BUYING A USED CAR

If you got your eye on a used car, weather it be by a private owner or on a car lot, get it inspected by a professional. Car lots cut corners you wouldn't believe to make a profit and a private owner may withhold information or just not know what his car really needs. 

Used Car Inspection $50.00

will document all findings for your review.

inspection only.

DRIVE AXLES

Drive axles, what are those? Well they're little drive lines that go to each front wheel on a front wheel drive car. These drive axles have lubricated constant velocity joints that are sealed with a rubber boot that is prone to failure. ripped boots leak all the lubricant out and the joints fail soon after causing wild noises while turning and accelerating, bad vibrations and axle breakage also happens soon after.

Prices vary widely so call for Estimate
