What is a digital courtesy inspection?

What is a digital courtesy inspection?

What is this digital courtesy inspection your team is always talking about? Each one of our technicians is equipped with an iPad. This allows our technicians to perform a multi-point inspection on every vehicle that comes in. This inspection is no charge to the customer and checks things over from fluids to suspension components. We will check light bulbs on all four corners of the vehicle to confirm no light bulbs are burnt out. We will check all fluid levels such as engine oil, coolant, windshield washer, and brake fluid. The air filter will also be inspected which is what prevents any dust, particles, and sand or debris from reaching the engine. This inspection allows us to keep you informed about what is going with your vehicle. When the inspection is complete you, the customer gets a copy via e-mail or text message with pictures of your vehicle and the inspection report

Why does my car shake when I apply the brakes?

Why does my car shake when I apply the brakes?

           As you apply the brake pedal does your car start to shake? Over time, brake pads start to gather road debris such as oil, dirt, and other materials. This can be what causes the vibration, especially when you are applying the brake pedal. When the brakes are applied, heat is generated and can cause the rotors to have uneven wear. When the uneven wear occurs on your brake rotors, it causes your vehicle to shake when the brakes are applied. If you have any concerns regarding the brakes on your vehicle, give us a call!

If your vehicle pulls to one way as you are driving can be an indication that the brakes are stuck. Believe it or not, it can cause lower fuel economy.

Why is my car burning oil?

Why is my car burning oil?

Why is my car buring oil?  When you start to think your vehicle is burning oil, don't hesitate to bring your vehicle to our shop. When your vehicle starts to burn oil, it usually is a result in worn out parts. Worn out seals or piston rings can lead to a vehicle burning oil. The vehicle's seals and piston rings work to keep the engine oil out of the combustion chamber. The combustion chamber is the area where fuel and air mix is ignited. It is also possible that your car is burning oil on the outside of your vehicle. This is because your vehicle's engine oil is leaking out and landing on a hot surface. Call us today if you suspect your vehicle is leaking oil to schedule an appointment. Our service team is ready to serve you!
