I regret to inform everyone that I have chosen to close United Auto Service Center. I can honestly say that it has been an honor and privilege to help you with your automotive needs. I sincerely appreciate the trust you have placed in me over these years. I want to thank Jon, Zach, Braxton, Brian, Patrick and Wesley for their part in success of the shop. Special thanks to my family and friends. But, a huge thanks to all of you. I will truly miss my great customers.
Please feel free to contact me if you need any automotive help or advise in the future. I am getting out of the repair business, but I will still help any way that I can. --Phil Torrejon

Due to severe weather last night in our area we will be closed today.

01/29/2014

Due to inclement weather today, we will be closed.
Our suppliers have suspended deliveries today, so without parts, there isn't much that we could do today beyond standing around in a circle drinking hot cocoa.
We will reopen tomorrow (Thursday.)

This is the bushing on the other side, where a leaking steering box has been drooling its vital fluids over it from above. You don't need to be a certified suspension tech to know this one is done for!
This same kind of degradation occurs to coolant hoses similarly contaminated. (Think: geyser!)
Sure, killing a $30 bushings is bad, but imagine if it were a $300 alternator!

It has come to my attention that a very important day has slipped past. This past Saturday was the fourth anniversary of the shop. Hooray!
(Somehow, we can't feel as though we should have done something about that...)

We have upgraded from Dry-Chem fire extinguishers to clean agent. Gone are the days of standing in front of an object as it burns, debating which is worse: the fire or the powder cleanup.

How A Car Engine Works (animated infographic)

In case you've ever wondered, or just want to have a better understanding for what we're talking about when we describe an engine issue, here is an excellent animation of how engines work.
(Special thanks to my friend Chris for bringing this to my attention!)

Our old, cumbersome AT&T e-mail address is no more. Our new e-mail address is [email protected]
You might ask, "Hey, why don't you just change your page information, instead of posting the new address.?"
That would be nice if FaceBook would let me.
Please send all complaints to the att.net address.
:-)

At 6:55 AM this morning, our email account was hacked. We are working hard to correct the issue. We would have liked to have sent out an e-mail letting everyone know to disregard the message, but our e-mail provided won't let us because emailing that many people is suspicious.
Where were they this morning?

07/16/2013

We have a few cheap vehicles for sale here at the shop:
A 1993 Chevy Astro that runs great with a very clean interior for $2400.
A 1995 Ford Ranger that looks like poop, but it runs for $1500.
And a 1996 Ford Probe that is pretty decent, but also lacks some in the looks department for $1500.
Call or message us if you are interested and have any questions!

Starting this week and for the rest of summer we will no longer be open regular hours on Saturdays, but we will be available on Saturdays by appointment.

The Real Truth About Synthetics

All very true statements. I've been using synthetic oils in all of my cars for years. Even now, it's amazing how many people, even those in the industry, still believe some of the oil myths!

(NAPSI)—If you’re like most drivers, when it comes to vehicle maintenance, you use the motor oil the vehicle manufacturer recommends or rely on the service technician for its oil selection.

Now is the time of year that many of us are pondering putting tax return money into procuring a pre-owned car. May we suggest as a prudent precaution to have your potential vehicle inspected professionally prior to purchase?
Aren't you proud to have a mechanic who can use alliteration...

Monday we had one of our customers compliment us on keeping a clean bathroom. This really means a lot to us, as we try hard to be mindful of the details.
I guess this means that Patrick still has a job...

It's amazing what can be accomplished on a free afternoon with a good Sawzall tool, a little destructive energy, and a lot of blades!

We have brake rebates!
$25 off when you replace one set of pads and a pair of rotors (one axle) or $50 off when you replace both front and rear pads and rotors (both axles.)

Off Topic: I would have thought that it would have been bigger news that they found Jimmy Hoffa's body under the post office parking lot in Auburn. At least that's what I'm guessing happened, because I can't think of any other reason to break up and replace that parking lot.
Seriously, does anyone know why that was done? It seemed to me that may have been the parking lot that least needed to be replaced in Auburn.

We would like to bid a fond farewell to Wesley. He is moving onward and upward. Best wishes for the future!
