Auto Repair Frequently Asked Questions

Can you be an alternative to dealerships for recommended new car service plans?

Yes!  This is one of our specialties.  Dealerships often charge more than we do and recommend “work” that is nothing more than an inspection.  We are definitely a solid viable alternative for new car maintenance schedules.

Do you do oil changes, tune-ups and other general automotive maintenance?

Yes, absolutely!

What other vehicle issues can seem like transmission problems?

There are many possible issues on a vehicle that can make it seem like there is a problem with the transmission, many of them are inexpensive to repair, here are just a couple:

  • Fouled spark plugs can make a car stall, which often feels just like a rough shift.
  • Engine timing, when it is off, can reduce vehicle power and many people blame the transmission first.

The biggest risk is that if you take your vehicle to the wrong shop you may be charged for unnecessary transmission work, so only trust the most reputable auto repair shop.
