Service Lights Check
The first sign of a problem with your vehicle often starts with an alert from a warning light on your dashboard. If one or more service lights is illuminated, make sure to drive cautious and visit a local auto shop to get the opinion of a skilled mechanic. At Auto Specialty, our professionals can diagnosis the problem if any of the following service lights are turned on:
- Backup Sensors
- Tire Pressure
- Anti-Lock Brakes
- And More!
Car Diagnostic Service
Although we stress regular tune ups for older vehicles, newer model vehicles still require regular care and maintenance. Auto Specialty has a state-of-the-art car diagnostic system that is completely wireless and diagnoses any ailment your vehicle might have—and quickly. From this initial diagnosis, we can repair damage and even “flash-program” your vehicle’s on-board computer to eliminate false warnings and stalling problems, as well as improve emissions and general drivability. Sometimes all it takes is a reboot!
At Auto Specialty, we recommend that older model vehicles come in for a tune up and regular maintenance at least once a year to avoid unnecessary car repairs in the future. However, if you have noticed your vehicle losing performance or fuel economy, or its “check engine” light has come on for unknown reasons, it may be time to come in and see us sooner. Typically, we inspect, replace and service the following areas of your vehicle:
- Spark Plugs
- Air Filters
- Fuel Filters
- Fuel System
- Engine Fluids (including steering and brake fluid, coolant, antifreeze, and oil changes)
Keeping your engine clean and running smoothly can add years to its life, even if it’s already decades old. Come to our shop in Lafayette for your regular car maintenance or more serious auto repairs to ensure it’s done correctly the first time.
