If you are wondering if your vehicle may need new shock absorbers, have us check them.


Over time, the rubber bushings holding your vehicle's suspension components in place will wear out and cause it to rattle. In this instance the only thing to do would be to have the undercarriage thoroughly inspected and have any failed or failing components replaced.


Worn shocks can increase the braking distance needed to stop if you are driving on rough roads. In addition, they can also increase the chances of skidding on wet surfaces, increase tire wear, and have a negative impact on the vehicle’s suspension.

Do you know that after any suspension or chassis work, performing an alignment is a requirement? Your vehicle may be unsafe to drive without this.


A modern vehicle is as much a computer as it is a mechanical machine so it can be very difficult to fix. That said, however, the electronic modules used in such vehicles—along with the proper diagnostic tools— allow a tech to resolve issues faster because they can indicate exactly what’s wrong.

When buying a used car, no matter if it's from a dealer or a private party, always have it inspected by professional mechanics before money changes hands. Unless the seller is willing to give you a warranty, it's "buyer beware."


Don't ignore even the smallest crack in your car's windshield as it can quickly grow and cause it to fail. For everyone's safety, have the windshield repaired or replaced immediately.


While replacing a faulty part on your vehicle may seem straightforward, this isn’t always the case. More often than not, a lot of other parts will need to be removed before you get to the target component so it would be advisable to have an experienced mechanic take on the task.


If you have been in an accident, we will work with your insurance company to provide the repairs you need. We'll use certified new parts, and perform only those repairs you or your insurance company indicates.

If your car's brakes are constantly squealing, you may want to stop by a garage to have the problem checked out. Chances are, your brake pads or brake rotors are worn so you will need to have them replaced as soon as possible.


Parasitic draw is an abnormal and continuous battery drain that occurs when the vehicle is off. You likely won't notice any problem under normal operation, but if the vehicle sits for a few days, it could kill the battery.


If your vehicle's diesel engine has a submerged dipstick tube, certain conditions may cause the oil to push up through the tube and spill out of the engine. Some of the sources of this condition are overfilling, a PCV problem, or pressure build-up that causes excessive blow-by.


Cars and trucks today rely on a lot of specialized equipment so it wouldn’t be advisable to work on them if you don’t have the proper knowledge and tools. Blindly groping around in hopes of finding a fault isn’t something you should do as this can possibly make the problem worse.
