WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!

Chucks Auto Repair is wanting everyone to evaluate their situation, and if there is a need for a car repair or service, please consider doing it now rather than later. If it’s been awhile since your vehicle has been inspected, please contact us and we can schedule a General Inspection for $39.95. Our goal has always been to keep you on the road in a safe and reliable vehicle. Plus, we have always wanted to keep our neighbors from risking a possible breakdown while driving.

In order to safely service our customers, we are offering Courtesy Front Door Service. We will pick-up and drop-off your vehicle if you are not able to bring your vehicle to the shop. We will wear protective gloves and disinfect the vehicle upon return to your home.

Don’t forget about our 24hr Touchless Drop-Off Service. You can drop your car off at the shop anytime, day or night and use our convenient Key Drop Envelope Station. There are sanitized pens in each envelope. Simply fill out the envelope with your info and the service requested and we will take it from there!
We can keep all communication over the phone, email or text for your safety and convenience. Once we are finished working on your vehicle, we can accept payment over the phone, park your car on our lot and lock it up with your keys in your vehicle along with your invoice.

Customers are welcome to come into our shop just on a limited occupancy to keep everyone safe. Our hours of operation are Monday thru Friday 8am-5:30pm.

Many of you don't know that Chucks Auto Repair offers payment options up to 12 Months Interest Free which may help while everyone waits for the Stimulus Checks to arrive. In the meantime we are enclosing $30.00 in Chucks Bucks to use right now.
This offer ends April 10th

Auto Repair Basics What You Should Know:

Having car problems can be scary. After all, an unexpected automobile malfunction can throw a major wrench in your ability to keep up with all of your adult responsibilities, especially if you don’t have a transportation back-up plan. When something goes wrong with your car, you can either take it to an auto repair shop, or attempt to fix the problem yourself. While it’s likely that you won’t have the tools, equipment, knowledge, skill set, or patience to handle major car repairs without the help of a professional, there are a number of simple auto repairs that you should be able to tackle on your own. You just need to start with a basic understanding of how automobiles work, how they are put together, and what is most likely to go wrong. Here is some general information of what you should know, as far as Auto Repair Basics are concerned:

Regular Maintenance. You can prevent unnecessary automobile malfunctions just by taking proper care of your car. Check your owner’s manual to find out when you need to get Oil Changes, Tune Ups, Timing Belt Replacements, and more. Be loyal to the Manufacturer’s Maintenance Schedule, and your car will be loyal to you. Since we live in the Pacific Northwest extreme moisture, stop and go driving, inclines from our hills etc... all take their toll on your vehicle here in Seattle.

Know The Systems of your Automobile. Just as your body has systems that must work together for your overall functioning, your car has systems that work together in much the same way. While it is not necessary that you learn every part of every system (although that’s not a bad idea), you need to at least familiarize yourself with the systems so that you can identify from where your auto problem is originating. The systems of an automobile are: Fuel System, Ignition System, Cooling System, Intake System, Drive Train, Engine, Braking System, and Electrical System, among others. That's why at Chucks Auto Repair we actually take the time to explain and help you learn more about your car’s specifics.

OBD Diagnostics. Your vehicle’s On Board Diagnostics (OBD) feature is basically a computerized system, running throughout your car, that identifies where problems are. Any time you are experiencing auto troubles, or a mysterious warning light comes up on your dashboard, you can take your car in to a mechanic, and have your car Diagnostics completed.

This happens when a computer designed for Vehicle Diagnostics is connected and communicates with your vehicles OBD. Normally there will be History Codes stored which in turn will tell which general area is having issues. These Codes are like having a Zip code without the actual address, this is a reason many parts stores offer Free Check Engine Light Check Ups. However instead of spending money and throwing parts at your car which will more then likely not fix the true reason for the warning light it's preferred to get a reliable, accurate diagnosis of the problem, by having it checked by a Repair Shop.

If you decide that your auto repairs are too much for you to handle, you will need to find the right auto repair shop for you. If you want quality service from a name you can trust, then you should put your auto repairs into the hands of experienced professionals like us, Chucks Auto Repair. We can be reached by phone, at 206-526-1069 in North Seattle.
