Avoid Unexpected Engine Repairs
Last thing anybody wants is to get stuck somewhere on the road with an engine problem. While there are no guarantees, there are 3 simple things you can do to minimize the probability of such an event:
1. Give your vehicle regular oil changes – it’s a simple maintenance task, but when performed at our Santa Cruz auto repair shop, it can make huge difference in the reliability of your vehicle. Oil change extends life of the engine, and improves performance. At Goodyear Tires and Auto Repair it also means that we get to see other subsystems of your vehicle, and can often spot impending problems – before they become breakdowns.
2. Do not ignore warning lights – when your car’s computer turns on a warning light, it means that something is not working correctly. Ignoring the warning light can cause further deterioration of the subsystem that caused the computer to turn on the warning light.
3. Do not ignore unusual noises - we know our cars better than anybody. When it starts to sound “different” – even if you can’t quite place the difference, it’s time to get your car to a friendly Santa Cruz auto repair garage for a checkup.
At Goodyear Tires and Auto Repair in Santa Cruz – a full service, family owned and operated auto repair shop, we offer comprehensive car care – from Honda Civic to Subaru Forester to the workhorse Chevy Silverado 2500.
