Bangs, rattles, backfires, and steam are all bad signs. They may not be as bad as they sound. Sometimes those are just indications of minor problems. The big problems are usually sudden, and the engine stops. If you hear sounds from your car start with a diagnostic service check. Many big engine problems can be prevented if you take care of the little problems. Here is a good guide to follow:

Preventative maintenance:

Oil changes, tune-ups, transmission service and other system checks and services help to prolong the life of your car and especially your drivetrain. There are hundreds of moving parts in an engine that all work in a choreographed partnership. When one part is not working properly, the entire engine can suffer. You may notice things like a change in mileage, or even leaks from the engine or transmission. Those are signs that your car needs service. AA Auto provides factory grade service for all makes and models of cars and trucks. We offer convenient hours, and we will always provide you with a free estimate. Just call or drop by.

Diagnostic Services:

Maybe you are between car service and you have discovered that something is not quite right with your car. Bring it by. We will take a quick look and either schedule you for a diagnostic service or try to squeeze your car into our daily lineup. What you should expect from a diagnostic service are answers. We will look at what the problem you hear or see it and then at other systems that may also be involved. Sometimes a noise or leak is not the main problem, but rather a symptom of another problem not yet discovered. Our goal is always to make sure that your car gets fully inspected. We will also talk with you about our findings. We offer plain English explanations of what is going on and what you can do to fix the vehicle. We will provide you with an estimate for service that includes parts, labor, and services.

Tune Up:

Sometimes a lot of noise can come from bad spark plugs or perhaps the engine timing is off. A simple tune up may be all that your engine needs. Your vehicle is recommended for engine service and tune up periodically depending on the make and model of your car or truck.Bring it into AA Auto and let our professionals provide factory level care to your car. We are engine experts and offer complete rebuilds if your vehicle should require engine replacement.
