The engine runs best when air and fuel properly mix and burn in the combustion chamber. To efficiently complete this process, a series of fuel and ignition system components must work together. Though many moving parts help an engine run properly, engine sputtering or misfiring is one of the leading problems. To reduce engine misfiring or sputtering issues, make sure to replace fuel and ignition system components as recommended by your manufacturer.
CHECK ENGINE LIGHT / ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS
A warning or check engine light is the most common issue for car, truck and SUV owners. These lights illuminate when the vehicle’s ECU (engine control unit) detects an error code triggered by a sensor. Since there are more than 200 possible warning code, having one of our professional mechanics complete a warning light inspection is the best way to determine the source and make the right repairs.
SUSPENSION / TIRE REPAIRS
Multiple issues can happen, for example, the steering wheel shakes while driving. If it happens right after starting your car and beginning to drive, wheel bearings or damaged suspension components are often the source. If it happens at higher speeds, it’s typically a tire/wheel balance issue. Regardless, having a professional mechanic inspect the vehicle at our location is the best way to correctly diagnose and resolve this issue.
When properly maintained, an automatic transmission can last for more than 200,000 km without trouble. The modern automatic transmission is a hydraulic system comprised of several seals, gaskets, and lines that can become damaged, clogged with debris, or leak. When this happens, a transmission will ‘slip’ or not shift smoothly. To avoid this common car problem, stay on top of the recommended transmission service for your vehicle. All cars require maintenance to remain operable. Even when you stay on top of suggested support services, like oil changes and tire rotations, issues will occur. Driving style or car model may leave your car more prone to certain problems than others.
Like any other moving part on your car, the brake system is intended to wear out over a designated period of time. Brakes are vital for safe stopping, so when they display any symptoms or issues, like squealing, squeaking or a soft brake pedal – it should be inspected by one of our professional mechanics as soon as possible. While minor problems can cause squeaking or squealing noises, once the brakes start grinding, it’s a definite sign they need to be replaced.
