Do you believe your vehicle may be leaking oil?

We know how scary it can be when you pull your vehicle out from a parking spot and there is a puddle underneath the vehicle. Oil leaks can happen over time and may be a simple fix. It also can be a lengthy and expensive repair. Bob's Main Street Auto starts with degreasing the engine and adding dye to the system. When the dye is added, we ask our customers to drive their vehicle for a week or so and then bring it back. We use a special light to look for the dye on the engine to see exactly where the oil leak is coming from. Call today and we will be happy to help you with all your vehicle's needs, big or small, we do it all!
