Accidents happen, and we are not referring to kids in their potty training phase. We are referring to car accidents, which most Americans are involved with at one time or another in their lives. But, accidents aren’t the only thing that warrants repairs. Sometimes, build up of routine wear and tear can lead to unwanted side effects for your vehicle.
Here are three examples of common auto repairs that we (and many auto repair shops in Philadelphia) deal with regularly:
- Replacing spark plugs – If your engine is misfiring, idling loudly or struggling to start up, it is possible you are dealing with combustion issues. If you notice those symptoms or a lack of acceleration, it’s quite possible you need new spark plugs.
- Replacing oxygen sensors – If you notice that your gas mileage is decreasing over time, it’s a good idea to have a professional check your oxygen sensor to make sure it isn’t faulty. Play it safe, and replace your O2 (oxygen) sensors every 60,000 miles. The fix is not very expensive considering it rarely needs to be performed. Plus, it can save you money if you prevent the issue from spiraling out of control. If you see that “Check Engine” light on, don’t ignore it – time is of the essence!
- Replacing ignition coils – If your vehicle is stalling when you stop, emitting smoke, or having problems starting, it is possible that your ignition coil is the cause. This is one of the routine car repair jobs in Philadelphia that we handle, and it is always best to take action as soon as you notice that something is misfiring.
Sometimes, you may need to replace the ignition coils and spark plugs at the same time for optimum performance. Luckily, these jobs are cost-effective and drastically reduce the risk of engine problems down the road [literally.]
For bigger vehicles, like the customized food trucks we restore, make sure to come see us before your inspection, so we have time to fix issues so you can pass your inspection and get back to business.
