Wondering what those colored lights are on your vehicle’s dash? They are there for a reason and are speaking to you even if you don't understand what they mean. Come talk to the professionals at Downtown auto. Even if you aren’t noticing any obvious symptoms, failure to address your vehicles warning system can be far more expensive than a routine diagnosis of your vehicles needs. With our many state of the art tools and computers we can carry out various forms of diagnostic testing on your automobile. Whether it be checking the fault parameters saved in the on board diagnostic system or graphing the data being presented to the control module, we have you covered.
Most importantly, do not ignore the flashing 'check engine’ light on your dashboard. This means the vehicle is experiencing a critical power failure that must be addressed immediately. For your safety, in the event of a flashing check engine light, Downtown Auto recommends you pull your vehicle immediately to the side of the road and call for roadside assistance.
Auto Maintenance Symptoms to Look and Listen For
In addition to paying attention to your system's warning lights, you should always be aware of your vehicles performance. Look listen and feel. Is there a vibration in your steering wheel or gear shift, or a shimmy in your vehicle? Is your clutch tight or loose when you engage it? Do your brakes feel mushy or take longer to stop? Do you hear any squeaking, rubbing, or knocking sounds? Is your exhaust smoky or milky white? Are there any strange smells? Are there loose cables or hoses under the good or beneath your vehicle? These are all symptoms that something is not right with your vehicle. Failure to address them in a timely manner may not only be expensive, but be unsafe. Remember, you’re not only looking after yourself, your family, or your employees, but you're sharing the road with others. Through routine inspections and auto maintenance, Downtown Auto is driven to keep your vehicle in top top shape and the road safe for everyone.
