Garden Grove Engine Repair
We all know that auto repair isn’t something most people regularly budget for. So sometimes your vehicle is suddenly making a new noise, there’s a different type of smoke coming from the tail pipe or a few drops of oil on the driveway. Even our Garden Grove weekend DIY folks sometimes put off these repairs because it’s a dirty job or can eat up their entire day. Sadly, these types of minor issues may not stop you from maintaining your daily driving routine for now, but if you ignore them for too long you may need a tow truck. Here are few repairs you should stop putting off before they become a costly repair and visit Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove.
If you have been topping off your oil for a long time rather than finding the leak, it is time to stop putting off the inevitable. While a small fluid drip may be annoying on your driveway, it may also coat your engine and damage other components. Delaying that power steering pump leak repair will sure seem silly when it ruins the alternator as well. So do yourself and your driveway a favor and visit the Pros at Orozco’s Auto Service.
While the noise may be annoying, an exhaust leak can also lead to nasty fumes finding their way into the passenger compartment. In extreme cases a leak can 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 replace the offending part. For some vehicles though, there are creative workarounds from NAPA Solutions like exhaust manifold repair clamps.
WORN SHOCKS / STRUTS
Worn out shocks and struts have a way of sneaking up on you. They rarely 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 the abuse that would normally be transmitted to other chassis components. Without that protection, those chassis parts wear out faster. Shocks are usually straightforward to replace, and strut replacement has become easier thanks to the availability of modular strut assemblies. Once the job is done, the difference will be immediately apparent on your next drive.
FAILING CV AXLES
You’ve already been warned your CV boots are torn, 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 too long could lead to dangerous driveline vibrations and possibly even failure of the axle assembly itself. Make the time and call Orozco’s Auto Service.
