Auto Repair Tips Every Driver Should Know

auto repair

 

Here at Orozco’s Auto Service of Long Beach Downtown we appreciate each and every customer. We know that there are times when your vehicle is having problems or you have a complete breakdown and may not have the opportunity to get to Orozco’s Auto Service location, if by chance that does ever happen we would like to share some valuable tips to help you in discovering another reliable alternative.

Do a bit of research

It doesn’t take long to do a little research on your estimate. Many common repairs can be found online to give you a better understanding of what the mechanic may be performing on your vehicle. Sadly, some of the less ethical shops out there can try to pad your invoice with non-essential task and or parts that didn’t need to be replaced.

Be sure to ask for an estimate upfront

You should not allow the shop to start working on your car without giving you an estimate for how much the work is expected to cost. In many states you are entitled to: An estimate – Before beginning any repairs, the auto shop must provide you with an estimate showing the estimated price for parts and labor and obtain your authorization. Sometimes the only option available is an estimates given over the phone so even though a written estimate carries more legal weight it may not be feasible. Many times an estimates is simply just an estimates, so it’s possible your bill could be slightly higher, if you see anything that is in excess of that stated amount possibly get a second opinion.

Inform the service advisor or mechanic with as many details as possible

When you bring your vehicle into an auto repair shop try and give the service advisor or mechanic as much information regarding the problem as possible. Letting them know if your vehicle is making strange noises when does that noise or rattle start…while going around corners, just after you start the vehicle and so on. This will give the shop a better directions and they can most likely diagnose the issue sooner and help getting you back on the road quicker.

Learn about the auto repair shop

If possible, ask around town and see if they know of the shops reputation. Also consider researching a few online reviews while understanding even a bad review can be insightful if the shop owner responds to the bad review with an effort to resolve the complaint. Additionally, feel free to stop in and check it out before making your decision. Is everyone friendly and professional? Is the shop clean and organized? Just by performing some do diligence can go a long ways into choosing an auto repair shop.

Don’t be afraid to ask follow up with questions

Unfortunately, far to many customers fall into the trap of the feared padded bill. Be it adding additional unnecessary repairs, upping to repair time or even listing repairs that aren’t even performed. Any honest auto repair shop wont be insulted if you ask to see the old parts or even point out the new parts installed if they are in a viewable position on your vehicle.

Be mindful of the the service advisors’ attitude

The service advisor, is generally your contact person at the front desk and your go between to the auto mechanic. If they are short with repair descriptions or easily agitated when you ask questions this may be the best time to request a manager or find another shop.

Try to avoid the larger chain stores

A smaller family owned auto repair shop may be a better option, due to the fact that they need to build long term relationships with their customers to earn repeat business. Additionally, the day may come when you need to get your previous repair records for routine maintenance of fluids and parts and having them spread out to several shops may prove difficult in tracking them down.

We hope these tips will be helpful if you’re ever away from an Orozco’s Auto Service location when you’re in need of emergency auto service. Always drive safe!

Don’t Turn Up Those Tunes, Get Exhaust System Repair

Loud Muffler Repair

 

Don’t you hate when you’re peacefully driving through Long Beach enjoying your jams on the radio and suddenly a vehicle with a screaming exhaust drive by, sometime so loud that you may panic and swerve as the vehicle drives by. Even worse is when you discover it’s your car! Don’t panic, Orozco’s Auto Service can silence that noise.

While we all know your muffler can keep your engine running quietly, but it’s also a key factor of your overall exhaust system. Your vehicles exhaust system has three main functions:

As we all know one of the primary functions is to muffle the engine noise with the muffler. Additionally, it safely gets hot exhaust gas from the engine out the tailpipe via a network of pipes starting with the exhaust manifold. Lastly, it treats the exhaust to remove harmful pollutants with the help of your catalytic converter.

Now let get back to the poisonous exhaust (carbon monoxide) exiting your engine. You don’t want that getting into your passenger compartment, carbon monoxide can be deadly. That’s why you should never run your engine in a closed area/garage. If you have a leak somewhere in the exhaust system, exhaust could get into the passenger cabin and make you sick or even kill you if ignored.

If you smell exhaust in the vehicle, roll down your windows and go to an Orozco’s Auto Service or any qualified mechanic to get it inspected as soon as possible. You may smell or see exhaust coming from the engine compartment or under the vehicle if you have a leak. Sometimes it sounds like a ticking sound when you start the engine that goes away as you drive. That may be a small crack or a bad fitting or seal that leaks when it’s cold but seals up when the metal heats and expands. It can also make sound from an exhaust leak that is loud and obvious as stated above.

Now, about that poisonous gas and the environmental issues. Exhaust gas contains a number of pollutants and dirty particulates. Your catalytic converter scrubs some of those harmful substances. And diesel vehicles have systems to deal with soot. Catalytic converters will eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Unfortunately, they are expensive so you want to help them last as long as possible by keeping your fuel system clean and replacing your air filter regularly. These components need to be tested for function with an emission tests from time to time.

If you believe your vehicle’s exhaust system needs service or are not sure and would like to have your vehicle inspected, call Orozco’s Auto Service of Long Beach today at 562-426-6322. Keep your vehicle in good condition and ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and those around you!

Auto Lights Repair Info Everyone Should Know

Auto Lights Repair

 

Long Beach Auto Lights Repair

 

Your vehicle’s Lights and Signals aren’t something most people think about when they jump into their car, truck or SUV and head off to work on Long Beach’s busy morning freeways and streets. After all, your lights are outside your vehicle, and you may not even know if they’re working until it starts getting dark. Some vehicles have sensors that show a warning message or light when you have a broken light, but for many vehicles, you need to stay alert and occasionally check them yourself. Unlike the headlights, you may not notice when you have a nonfunctional tail light, brake light, or signal. Some vehicles will show an erratic blinker dash light when you signal a turn. An easy way to check on your own is to turn on the hazard lights and then go outside your vehicle to check, but brake lights aren’t as easy to check without the help of a friend.

One of the more common Auto Lights Repairs is brakes lights and turn signal failure which is usually just a burned out bulb. Unfortunately, glass bulbs all burn out sooner or later, which is a reality for all of us. other factors are time and the elements that will wear your bulbs down and inevitably lead to failure. You can always keep a set of replacement bulbs on hand in your car witch will keep you legal and safe on the road.

If you’ve replaced your bulbs and the problem is still there, you may have a short in the light or signal’s wiring. Or one of the pins could be burned or melted, causing a slight voltage irregularity which may even trigger a check engine light. If you replaced all of your bulbs and they still don’t function, or you have a check engine light, check all of your wire connections closely and see if you have any abnormalities.

If your turn signals stops working or works intermittently, you should use hand signals until you can get them fixed to avoid getting a ticket or in an accident. Turn signal mechanics are a bit more complicated than headlights or taillights since they involve switching on and off, so if you are experiencing problems with your turn signal, it would be best to have one of our Orozco’s Auto Service ASE Certified Technicians check your vehicle to diagnose the problem, fix it, and reset all lights and warnings.

If you believe your vehicle’s lights needs service or are not sure and would like to have your vehicle inspected, call Orozco’s Auto Service of Long Beach Downtown today at (562) 426-6322. Keep your vehicle in good condition and ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and those around you!

Learn All About A Long Beach Oil Change

Long Beach Oil Change

 

Long Beach Oil Change

Most Long Beach car owners know they should get their oil changed regularly, but for one reason or another it just doesn’t happen. Some of those reasons can be; I can’t find the time, it’s not in my budget this month, I hate sitting around in a shabby waiting room, I don’t like repair shop restrooms and so on. Orozco’s Auto Service of Long Beach Downtown has your back, and we know how you feel. We and our families have all gone through some of those same frustrations and that’s why we want to may your time with us as painless as possible, some say even relaxing. First, Orozco’s Auto Service maintains the cleanest of waiting rooms and restrooms, they sparkle! We offer several options for making appointments over the phone (562) 426-6322, stop by or SCHEDULE A FREE APPOINTMENT. You can also drop off your vehicle and we can drop you off at your home or office within 10 miles. We know budgets are tight these days but getting regular oil serve will save you big in the long run. Now to make you feel even better. An oil change may not seem critical to keeping your car running well, but neglecting your oil can cause some serious engine problems.

Below is some information why you need to make sure you get an oil change at the manufacturer’s recommended intervals.

Topping off oil versus changing oil: If you check your vehicle’s dipstick and the oil level is low, then adding oil is only a temporary way to solve the problem for getting you back on the road. Don’t worry if you need to occasionally top off your oil, most cars will start to burn a little oil as they get older. If the issue persists stop into any Orozco’s Auto Service and we can check it out.

Oil keeps it clean: If you look at the contents of a fresh bottle of oil, you’ll notice that it’s more of a golden amber color compared to the brown or black oil on your dipstick. That’s because it’s clean. As oil moves through your engine, it carries away dirt and grime that gradually turns the oil dark. Dark, dirty oil will not do a good job of lubricating or cleaning your engine. You should get your oil changed at the manufacturer’s recommended intervals to ensure that your engine remains clean and running smoothly. Luckily Long Beach isn’t particularly a dirty or dusty environment, but if you travel to that type of a climate you should get your oil (not to mention their air filters) changed more often.

Changing your oil: Requires draining the engine of the old oil that is most likely very dark in color due to dirt and debris and replacing it with fresh oil that is usually golden amber in color to a specified level indicated by the dipstick. You will also need to pick up and add a new oil filter, which will help to keep the fresh oil clean by collecting some of that dirt and debris that the oil captures on its way through your car’s engine. Your vehicle’s oil needs to be changed at the manufacturer’s recommendations or when it gets too dirty to accomplish its job of keeping your engine components moving. At Orozco’s Auto Service, we take care of all this and give your vehicle a full inspection along with checking and topping off all fluids that appear low which is part of our recommended maintenance plan.

Another reason oil changes are so important is because the primary function of your engine’s oil is keeping all the metal parts of your engine lubricated. This will prevent any metal-on-metal contact, which can cause damage to your engine that can be very costly to repair. The oils task is to keep thin layer of oil on key components which maintains them sliding smoothly and reduces friction that will otherwise damage your engine over time.  Oil also reduces friction which in turn reduces heat buildup, which can also be a problem for your engine.

If you notice your “change oil” light lit on your dashboard, you shouldn’t ignore it. More than likely there isn’t any immediate danger of being damaged, but the light coming on is definitely not something to avoid. If it’s on, your oil needs attention. It may be low and need to be topped off, but if it’s time for an oil change, be sure to stop by or make an appointment at Orozco’s Auto Service of Long Beach in the near future.

Advice For Everything Auto Suspension Repair

Auto Suspension Repair

Your car’s suspension isn’t something most people think about while it’s working. But as soon as something goes wrong it can be very disconcerting. Here is some unfortunate scenarios  that you may suddenly notice if you have Suspension problems. Uneven wear on your tires or start to feel excessive play with your steering wheel or your vehicle slumps when braking or bottoms out when accelerating. Worst of all all, you may hit a pothole on one of our local Long Beach roads  that breaks parts on your suspension.

Due to the fact that your suspension is installed behind your wheels, many people done know much about their suspension. So, simply put, t’s part of your vehicles chassis, that includes the steering system, the wheels along with the frame. Your suspension system supports your entire vehicle, helping to reduce the effect of impacts from the road and maintains proper wheel alignment. It’s crucial for accurate steering, stopping and stability. Every time you hit a pothole, bump or object in the road, your suspension absorbs the impact and maintains control.

Most modern vehicles suspension systems are made up of many parts such as: shocks, springs absorbers, struts, torsion bars, leaf springs, pull rods, air springs, etc.  that all connect to your vehicle wheels one way or another.

You can imagine, with all those parts your suspension has plenty of joints and pivot points that allow your wheels to move smoothly up and down over bumps, and to turn as you steer. Over time all that abuse on those joints will eventually wear them out. Once a joint is worn, the suspension parts don’t fit as originally designed, handling and steering feels loose, and you may hear some disconcerting noises. Eventually your tires will begin to show unevenly wear because they are bouncing all over the road. A loose joint has the effect of stressing other suspension components as well, causing a chain reaction so other components will wear out faster.

Our ASE certified technicians at Orozco’s Auto Service of Long Beach Downtown recommend getting proper maintenance based on your vehicle’s manufacturer’s recommendations. This means regularly having your suspension inspected and repairing or replacing parts when ever necessary.

By addressing minor problems before they becomes a major repair can help avoid costly future repairs. Also, be sure to have parts replaced or checked ensuring your mechanic follows the manufacturer’s specifications. Manufacturer’s also recommend replacing your shock absorbers at pre-estimated intervals.

If your vehicle is showing any of the above signs or you feel your vehicle’s suspension needs service or are not sure and would like to have it diagnosed, call Orozco’s Auto Service of Long Beach Downtown today at 562-426-6322. Plus always keep your vehicle in good condition to ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and those around you!

6,000 Miles Between a Synthetic Oil Change. Really.

Long Beach Oil Change

 

Long Beach Downtown new car owners are often surprised when they are told their new vehicle uses synthetic oil. Additionally, they discover a synthetic oil change is about twice the cost of the standard oil change. So when did this new costly upgrade happen and will it really benefit me and my vehicle?

Well it all started around 2019 when about 70% of all newer vehicles began to recommend using synthetic oil or a synthetic blend oil for their engines. We’ll get into synthetic blends in a later article, for now lets stick with synthetic oil. Synthetic oils are generally the better choice for performance and the longevity of your vehicle. This is based on the fact that synthetic oil protects your engine due to lower levels of friction which  protect your engine better at extreme high and low tempters. Moreover, synthetic oils don’t break down as quickly as standard oils meaning you can go further distances in between regular oil changes that help save money down the road.

So lets dig a bit deeper into what synthetic oil is. In a nut shell it’s artificially made from a variety of chemical compounds. They are then broken down and then rebuilt into new petroleum molecules. However, The base material, is still made mostly of crude oil that is distilled and then modified physically and chemically. There are many types of synthetics oils available with distinctly different properties and applications that vary based on the ultimate needs of your vehicle.

Here are some of the benefits when using Synthetic Oil:

  • Synthetics have a naturally higher viscosity index. Meaning, the viscosity changes less as temperature changes during normal engine startup and operating conditions as a result of being a more stable compound than standard oil.
  • Getting a longer engine life in most vehicles. Many Long Beach Downtown drivers have never owned a vehicle that lasted long enough to hit the 200,000 miles mark on their engine. But, with so many new vehicles using synthetic oils these days we will soon see more drivers every year achieving that goal.
  • Synthetic engine oils are generally less volatile than standard oils. This means there is less loss of the oil to the engine’s exhaust stream causing air pollution. This could also mean less need for adding oil between oil changes.
  • At extremely low temperatures, it is possible for mineral oils to become so thick (high viscosity) that the oil is non-pumpable making it unable to circulate effectively within the engine.
  • Synthetic oil has a longer lifespan than conventional oil. The recommended change interval for synthetic oil is around every 5,000 to 7,000 miles or 6 to 8 months, with some brands lasting much longer (15,000 to 25,000).

In conclusion, for many vehicles, synthetic oils could be a better choice for overall engine operation, performance and longevity. Unless the biggest factor in making your selection of lubrication is only based on cost. If you like the idea of fewer oil changes, upgrading to synthetic oil is the wisest choice, call Orozco’s Auto Service of Long Beach Downtown today at 562-426-6322. Keep your vehicle in good condition and ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and those around you!

Long Beach Radiator Repair: Need To Know Info

Long Beach Radiator Repair

Long Beach Downtown Radiator Repair

Why is it that whenever there’s a car chase in a movie that the car being chased seem to always overheat signaled by a stream of steam coming from under the hood? This is generally a sign that the vehicle has a damaged radiator due to being shot or pushing the vehicle past it’s limits. As we all know, that’s just a movie. The reality about radiators is they can be a fragile component of your engine, and if not properly monitored and maintained it can fail and lead to additional costly engine repair. If you see steam coming from the radiator it is an indicator just like in the movies that your radiator has not been able to do it’s job and it can quickly lead to additional costly repairs if you continue driving.

The radiator is one of the elements of your vehicle’s cooling system, and if there’s a problem with it, the extremely high temperature of your engine running will cause your vehicle to overheat and likely and if ignored for even a short period of time will fail. Additionally, your radiator prevents overheating by cooling the fluid that flows throughout your engine to dissipates engine heat.

We can fix many types of leaks, radiator hoses, even replace with a new radiator from our 1,000’s of in-stock radiators.

Replacing the thermostat or repairing hoses is usually a fairly simple job and shouldn’t be too expensive. On the other hand repairing a radiator or water pump can be a bit more tricky depending on their location. Water pumps usually need to be replaced opposed to repaired. Radiators can be either repaired or replaced depending on the damage and area of the damage. There are sometimes instances where the radiator can be repaired, but the repair will not last and you should be cautious and get it replace as soon as possible.
