Many people are tempted to do their own car repairs in order to save money on the labor costs associated with a real mechanic. While this may work out well for simple repairs, it's not a good idea for major vehicle systems or those related to safety. Mistakes in these areas can lead to engine troubles that leave a person stranded, brakes that don't effectively stop the car, and more. Here are a few reasons a professional car mechanic gets better results:
Probably the most common maintenance stop for any vehicle is an oil change. Depending on the make, model, and age of your vehicle, oil changes may be required fairly frequently in order to keep your vehicle in good working condition. Though, with our busy schedules, it can be hard to make time for an oil change. So what really happens to your car if you do not regularly change the oil?
Driving down the road and something does not sound right. The engine tells the owner a lot through the sounds it makes. Engine repair is rarely cheap. Listening to what a vehicle has to say through the sounds is of great consequence.
Like all other auto parts, the radiator in your vehicle requires maintenance and care to perform as it should for several years. The radiator’s primary function is to keep the engine cool so that it does not overheat.
Now that the temperature is finally warming up a bit, it’s the perfect time to prepare your car for the warm summer months. You can start with a simple air conditioning recharge to boost your air conditioning system. A recharge service consists of connecting your car's AC system to a machine, which vacuums all the old refrigerant and oil from the system, and then refills it to an adequate level.
If you feel like your car’s dashboard looks like a commercial jet operating panel, you’re not alone. Many of the drivers that come into our oil change shop or service center complain that a vehicle warning indicator is on, but have no idea what it means. Although it is possible that a warning light could be triggered accidentally (we need to reset the computer), it usually says that there is a necessary auto repair such as an engine replacement or a tire repair. Below is a quick rundown of all the warning indicator lights on your dashboard and what they mean. If any of these lights come on and stay on, you should bring your car to AA Auto Tech so that a car mechanic can look at it.
A transmission is as integral to a vehicle’s operation as the motor itself. What happens when your transmission goes out? Your vehicle doesn’t move. Signs of a worn out or damaged transmission begin to show long before it ultimately fails. If you notice these signs, you should bring our car into AA Auto car mechanic so that can inspect the transmission and make the necessary transmission repairs. Below are five symptoms that should alert you.
During both the winter and summer seasons, you need to bring your car into the AA Auto Tech service center so that a car mechanic can inspect your cooling system. It’s during both the hot and freezing periods of the year when your cooling system is most vulnerable. By keeping current with fresh coolant and undergoing any leak repair, we can help you avoid significant auto repair issues such as transmission replacement or engine replacement.
Factory Recommended maintenance extends the life of your vehicle while saving you hundreds of dollars in needles car repairs. By allowing AA Auto Tech mechanics to work on your cars according to factory specifications, we can ensure that we are putting the right parts on your vehicle to optimize its performance.
Your car’s air conditioning system relies on refrigerant to keep the vehicle cabin cool during the warm season. If the refrigerant gets low, the system cannot operate properly, if at all. With Spring and summer on the way, now is the time to be thinking about boosting your system with an AC recharge. AA Auto Tech can recharge your AC and get it working in peak performance. Schedule a service appointment and let a car mechanic assess how well your AC is working.
