Q: About Your Vehicle’s Exhaust
A: The vehicle exhaust might appear to be an insignificant section of your vehicle, but it’s the part which makes sure the dangerous carcinogens from the vehicle’s engine so it runs to the best of its abilities. It’s also essential as it gets rid of hazardous fumes from the exhaust fumes. The exhaust system should be repaired by a skilled repair shop.

Q: When should I change my vehicle’s oil?

Q: Is it necessary to replace my timing belt as recommended?
A: Absolutely. Timing belt failures can actually cause major engine damage, and the expense of repairing an engine with a broken belt is far greater than the cost of replacing the timing belt when recommended.

Q: What does it mean when my “Check Engine” light turns on?
A: There are several reasons that could activate your “Check Engine” light. Many sensors and computerized components that generally manage your engine’s performance and emissions. If any of these sensors or components fail, a code is thrown and your “Check Engine” light illuminates. Although your car may seem to run fine, having these problems addressed will prevent long-term and costly issues.

A: As a detrimental part of regular your vehicle’s maintenance, an evaluation should be done during the course of even our mild Arizona Winters including checking your tires, belts, hoses and other components.
