Vehicle parts naturally wear out over time, and road hazards can negatively impact critical components. By adhering to the preventive maintenance schedule in your vehicle owner’s manual, you will help ensure your vehicle always runs at optimal conditions. Depending on your vehicle’s factory scheduled maintenance interval mileage, our mechanics may inspect the function of your steering and suspension components, fluid filters, belts and hoses, brakes and axles, and more to help your vehicle function efficiently.
Excessive bouncing or swaying during bumps and intermittent control while driving and braking are cause for a suspension system inspection. Uneven tire wear is also a potential sign of a suspension problem. Because suspension system components combine into one working unit, untreated suspension issues have the potential to increase the wear on other suspension components, which may result in more extensive repairs down the road. So, don’t hesitate to call Spraggins Auto Repair if you suspect your suspension system needs service.
An auto cooling system consists of a cooling fan, water pump, thermostat, radiator, heater core, heater valve, and various other parts that work together to remove heat from a vehicle’s engine to prevent overheating. Antifreeze is the fluid that flows through all these components to reduce engine temperature. During a cooling system flush and fill, we will drain the antifreeze from your radiator, flush the cooling system, and fill the radiator with new antifreeze. Our goal is to help you avoid radiator replacement or another major repair.
If your check engine light is on or you’re experiencing any type of drivability issues, your next step should be to seek out an auto diagnostic service. Auto diagnostics allow our technicians to gather helpful information about the operating condition of your vehicle and determine the extent of auto repairs you need. Basically, answering the questions: “why’s my check engine light on?” and/or “what’s wrong with my car?” Our technicians are skilled diagnosticians who can pinpoint the issue(s) causing problems for your vehicle.
If your timing belt fails, your engine will too. So, when an honest mechanic advises you to replace your timing belt, you should listen. However, there aren’t many obvious signs a timing belt is ready to break, which is why many drivers get a new timing belt as a preventive maintenance service. Replacing a timing belt proactively generally costs less than replacing a broken timing belt. Let us know how long you’ve owned your car, and whether you’ve ever had the timing belt replaced, and we’ll let you know—honestly—if it’s time for a new timing belt.
Your vehicle’s auto A/C and heating system is responsible for cooling, purifying, and circulating air, which it does through a complex system of components, including a condenser, compressor, drive belt, and evaporator. Like most aspects of car maintenance, treating a problem with your vehicle’s A/C or heating system early, when only one of these components is worn, can prevent the need for a more expensive repair down the road. We handle all types of A/C and heating systems repair at Spraggins.
