Long Beach, Downtown Engine Repair & More
So, let just say you’re driving down Long Beach Boulevard and suddenly your vehicle starts to make a new noise, or there’s an odd looking smoke coming from your exhaust pipe or a few new drops of oil on your driveway. These may are all be scenarios of some minor problems but ever though they’re minor they shouldn’t be neglected. We all know there’s always so many other costs going on in life and you’re never ready to have to spend that hard earned money on your vehicle. Even our Long Beach weekend DIY mechanics sometimes put off these repairs because it’s a dirty job or it takes up an entire day off to fix. But if not addressed these types of minor issues may stop you from maintaining your regular driving routine, and if ignored for too long you may need a tow truck. Here are few of those repairs you should definitely not put off for too long before they become a costly repair.
WORN SHOCKS / STRUTS
Worn out shocks and struts don’t show to many signs they are wearing out. It’s not like they go bad overnight, but when they are at the end of their service life they may as well not be there at all. Shocks and struts take a lot of abuse like pot holes and speed bumps and that would normally be transmitted to other chassis components. Without that initial protection, those chassis parts wear out quick. Shocks are usually fairly straightforward to replace, and strut replacement has become easier thanks to the availability of modular strut assemblies. Thankfully, if you don’t have the time or resources Orozco’s Auto Service does. And once the job is done, the difference will be immediately apparent to you and your vehicle.
If you have been regularly topping off your oil for too long rather than finding the leak, it is time to schedule an appointment with Orozco’s Auto Service. We all know small fluid drip may be an annoyance on your driveway, it can also coat your engine and damage other sensitive components. Delaying that power steering pump leak repair will sure seem silly when it floods into the alternator and your vehicle doesn’t start Monday morning. So do yourself and your driveway a favor and call the pros at Orozco’s Auto Service.
While the noise from an exhaust leak can sometimes be fixed by turning up the radio, an exhaust leak can also lead to dangerous carbon monoxide fumes finding their way into the passenger compartment. In extreme cases a leak can also burn or melt nearby components. Unfortunately they can also be hard to track down, especially when buried in the engine compartment. Cast iron manifolds can crack, bolts can break, gaskets can fail, and exhaust pipes can rust through. The straight forward repair is to let Orozco’s Auto Service repair it before it’s too late.
FAILING CV AXLES
Remember way back when you were warned your CV boot is torn on the drivers side? But there’s no way to know just when the joint inside will start to fail. If you’re hearing a clicking and popping when turning left or right, then it’s time for new axles. Waiting on this repair too long could lead to dangerous driveline vibrations and possibly even failure of the axle assembly itself. Make the time and contact Orozco’s Auto Service.
