Tips For Finding The Right Exhaust System Repair

Exhaust Pipe Repair

 

Every driver at some time has that moment when you’re driving through Garden Grove enjoying your favorite song on the radio when all of suddenly a vehicle with an damaged exhaust drives by. sometime so load that you panic and swerve as the vehicle screams by. Even worse is when you discover your vehicle is making that sound! Don’t panic, Orozco’s Auto Service can muffle that noise.

Most Garde Grove drivers know your muffler keeps your engine running quietly, but it’s also a big factor for your vehicles complete exhaust system. There are three main functions your exhaust system provides to you vehicle.

While many people know one of the primary functions for your muffle is to reduce the engines exhaust noise. Additionally, it safely moves hot exhaust gases from the engine out the tailpipe through a network of pipes beginning with the exhaust manifold. Finally, the exhaust system treats the exhaust to remove harmful pollutants with the assistance of the catalytic converter.

Lets address the harmful pollutants (carbon monoxide) billowing out from 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 or garage. If you have a leak someplace in the exhaust system, it could get into the passenger cabin and make you sick or if ignored, kill you and or your passenger(s). Exhaust gas contains a number of pollutants and dirty particulates.

Another component of all exhaust systems these days is a catalytic converter that scrubs some of those harmful substances. And diesel vehicles have systems to deal with soot. Unfortunately, catalytic converters eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Additionally, they are expensive so you want to help them last as long as possible by keeping your fuel system clean and regularly replacing your air filter. And as many people know, these components need to be tested for function with an emission tests from time to time. If you think you smell exhaust in your vehicle, immediately roll down the windows and drive to Orozco’s Auto Service or any qualified mechanic to get your vehicle inspected.

Sometimes you can smell or see exhaust coming from the engine compartment or under the vehicle if you have a leak. Sometimes you may hear a ticking sound after you start the engine that will go away as you drive. That can mean there’s a small crack or bad fitting / seal that leaks when the engine is cold and closes up when the metal heats up making it expands. It can also generate sound from an exhaust leak that is loud and obvious as stated above.

All You Need To Know About Coil Spring Repair

Coil Spring Repair

 

Garden Grove Coil Spring Repair

Most of today’s modern vehicles have Coil springs, generally on smaller vehicles like sedans. Coil springs are available in soft or hard variations depending their use. For example, if they are used on a large vehicle, the coil spring will be hard to offer maximum support for the excessive weight and the softer sprigs for lighter vehicles. Coil springs go to each wheel, forming a central compression zone. The Coil spring has a helical appearance and goes around the struts or shocks. Although, on some vehicles, they are mounted individually. This simple innovation comes in handy for a smooth ride.

Coil springs became prominent during the ’70s with the changes in automobile technology, but they have been around since the early 1900s. Today’s springs have many applications due to their versatility. You find them on everything from standard sedans to sports cars, vans, SUVs, and trucks. The coil springs main function is to support the vehicle at a desired height, also to maintain alignment and to help absorb road shock transmitted through the tires and shock absorbers.

The endless flexing during normal use will gradually weaken your vehicles suspension system, which in turn will allow the vehicle to sag from one side or the other. Once this sag becomes pronounced, your entire vehicle will be affected. One in particular is your steering components shift out of position, resulting in altering the steering linkage geometry. But there is good news, what’s been lost from the older worn out coil springs can be completely repaired with the installation of new coil springs. This will get your vehicle back to it’s original factory height and driving like it should.

How often do you have to get coil springs inspected?

Most all manufacturers recommend getting your vehicle’s coil springs inspected at regular intervals along with your entire suspension system that can include struts, shocks, sway bar links, bushings and more. Most reputable auto repair shops will do this when you bring your vehicle in for it’s recommended oil service. A quick visual inspection can detect any sag problems from front to rear or from side to side. Upon a visual inspection under your vehicle, we will also look for the two ends of the control arms that can be out of level, damaged or worn rubber bumpers and of course worn spring coils. All these elements can indicate weak coil springs. If you also live or often drive your vehicle in a colder climate where roads are often salted in winter weather, you should consider having your steering and suspension system checked more often due o the fact that salt can cause speed up your spring corrosion.

Helpful Ideas For A Garden Grove Oil Change

Garden Grove Oil Change

Even though all Garden Grove car owners know they should get their vehicle’s oil changed regularly, there’s also so many reasons why people may put it off. I don’t have time, it cost too much, I hate waiting, I don’t like auto shop restrooms and so on. Here at Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove we know how you feel. We and our families have all gone through those same frustrations and that’s why we want to put your mind at ease. First, the easy answers. Orozco’s Auto Service maintains the cleanest of waiting rooms and restrooms. We have several options for making appointments over the phone or online. You can also drop off your vehicle and we can drop you off at your home or office within 10 miles. Getting regular oil serve will save you more in the long run.

Now to make you feel even better here’s what does an oil change does, and why it’s so important? Something as simple as an oil change may not seem critical to keeping your car running well, but neglecting your vehicles oil can cause some serious problems. Here’s why you need to make sure you get an oil change at the manufacturer’s recommended intervals.

Adding oil versus changing oil: If you check your vehicle’s dipstick and the oil level is low, then adding oil is a quick but temporary way to fix the problem and get back on the road. Keep in mind that most cars will start to burn a little oil as they age.

Changing the oil: This is a bit more involved, it requires draining the engine of all the old oil that is most likely very black in color due to dirt and debris and replacing it with fresh oil to a specified level indicated by the dipstick. You will also need to get 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 when it gets too dirty to accomplish its mission of keeping the engine components moving smoothly. At Orozco’s Auto Service, we do 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 the metal parts of your engine lubricated. This will prevent any metal-on-metal contact, which can cause engine damage that can be very costly to repair. A thin layer of oil on key components keeps them all sliding smoothly and reduces friction that could otherwise harm your engine over time. Reducing friction also reduces heat buildup, which can also be a problem for your engine.

Additionally 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 Garden Grove 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.

Lastly, If you see your oil change light lit on your dashboard, do not ignore it. Your car likely isn’t in immediate danger of being damaged, but the light coming on is definitely not something to ignore. If it’s on, your oil needs attention. It may just be low and need to be topped off, but if it’s time for an oil change, be sure to make an appointment at Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove within the next few days.

Have The Right Knowledge Concerning Auto Suspension Repair

Auto Suspension Repair

 

 

Your vehicle’s suspension isn’t something most people think about when it’s working. When all of a sudden you may notice uneven wear on your tires or start to feel excessive play with your steering wheel. Or you just drove over a pothole on one of our local Garden Grove roads causing damage to your suspension. These are signs that you may have a suspension problem. Another sign to look for is the front of your vehicle slumps when braking or bottoms out when accelerating.

But what is the suspension? It’s part of your vehicles chassis, which includes the frame, the steering system and the wheels. The suspension system supports your vehicle’s weight, helps reduce the effect of shock forces and maintains proper wheel alignment. It’s critical for accurate steering, stopping and stability. Every time you hit a pothole, a bump, or object in the road, your suspension absorbs that impact and maintains control.

Most suspension systems are made up of several parts (shocks, springs absorbers, air springs, struts, torsion bars, leaf springs, pull rods, etc.) that all connect to your vehicle wheels one way or another.

With all those parts you can imagine, your suspension has a lot of joints and pivot points that allow your wheels to move up and down over bumps, and to turn as you steer. Over time these joints wear out over time. Once a joint is worn out, the suspension parts don’t fit together as well as they should. Handling and steering can feel loose, and you may hear some disconcerting noises. Eventually your tires will begin to wear unevenly because they are bouncing on the road. A loose joint has the effect of stressing other suspension components causing a chain reaction so other components wear out faster than they should.

Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove recommends proper maintenance according to your vehicles manufacturer’s recommendations which means having your suspension inspected regularly and repairing or replacing parts when needed.

Addressing a small problem before it becomes a major repair later can help avoid additional costs. Also, by having parts replaced or checked to ensure they follows the manufacturer’s specifications. Manufacturer’s also recommend replacing your shock absorbers at pre-estimated intervals.

If your vehicle has 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 Garden Grove today at 714-537-0076. Keep your vehicle in good condition and ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and those around you!

Simple Tricks And Pointers For Timing Belt Repair

Timing Belt Repair

 

Garden Grove Timing Belt Repair

A vehicle’s timing belt is perhaps the one item whose failure could most likely mean the end for your entire engine. This is due to the fact that if your timing belt breaks it can be catastrophic to your car’s engine. Meaning that the maintenance on this component is critical.

A timing belt is a ribbed belt that is run in a specific setup on one side of a car’s engine to keep the crankshaft and camshafts timed properly. In essence, it is keeping the top half of your engine (valves) synced to the bottom half (crankshaft). If your car is 15 years old or older, it most likely has a timing belt. Some new cars, such as Audi and Honda, still use timing belts in their engines, but several manufacturers have switched to metal timing chains that are supposed to last as long as the engine. The surest way to determine if your car has a timing belt or not is to refer to the maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual or stop by Orozco’s of Garden Grove and one of our ASE trained service Advisors can look it up for you. Generally, the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule for timing belt replacements differ between vehicles, usually timing belts should be replaced every 60,000 miles or 5 years – whichever comes sooner.

There are two types of engine timing configurations that employ timing belts: interference and non-interference. An interference engine means that the valve’s stroke and piston’s stroke occupy the same space in the cylinder at different times, so the timing belt keeps them from colliding with each other. If the timing belt snaps, the cylinder and valves will most likely hit each other, which most commonly causes bent valves but can also result in cylinder head or camshaft damage, and possibly piston and cylinder wall damage. It is possible to get lucky and not suffer any damage from a snapped timing belt on an interference engine, but very unlikely. On a non-interference engine, pistons and valves never occupy the same space, so if the timing belt snaps, no valve or cylinder damage should occur, and theoretically, replacing the broken timing belt will revert your engine to normal function.

If you’re thinking of changing your vehicle’s timing belt is not an easy job to do on your own. It’s much harder than just changing a set of wheels and doing it wrong, especially on an interference-type engine, can result in much more severe and expensive damage. At Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove our ASE trained technicians have the experience to replace all types of timing belts and timing chains on all makes and models. Additionally, all of our work is also back by a NAPA nationwide 2 year, 24,000 warranty and can easily be extended to 3 years and 36,000 mile for a nominal fee. Also we know that there’s never a convenient time for a large repair, and that’s why we offer easy financing (OAC) to help get you back on the road as soon as possible.

If your vehicle is ready for Timing Belt Repair or are not sure and would like to have it diagnosed, contact Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove today at 714-537-0076. Remember always keep your vehicle in good condition and ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and those around you!

Diesel Engine Repair

A fuel induction service that is typically not part of the mileage-based maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual. Although, it should still be part of your vehicle’s maintenance routine. We recommend it every 60,000 miles or whenever you notice performance issues. Typically, diesel fuel will oxidize and form residues that deposit in fuel injectors and combustion chambers. These deposits will drastically affect the engines performance by clogging fuel injectors and creating irregular spray patterns. This service is designed for concentrated cleaning of the injection pump and injectors.

It takes more than the proper tools to repair a diesel engine. As highly-skilled ASE technicians, we take pride in diagnosing any engine problem and providing affordable repairs. Unlike gasoline engines, diesel engine systems use their own compression to ignite fuel. They have significantly more compression in the chamber than gas-powered engines. This means that the air-to-gas mixture is very different as well. Due to the extreme compression, external sparking is not necessary. Built without spark plugs, a diesel engine runs more efficiently using glow plugs. Many of the new models get 500,000 miles without the need for a rebuild. At the first sign of any problem, it’s important to bring your vehicle to Orozco’s for diesel engine repair. We know these types of engines inside and out.

Your Car Will Appreciate These Fuel Pump Repair Tips

Fuel Pump Repair

 

Garden Grove Fuel Pump Repair

Fuel pump repair in Garden Grove can be a tricky task due to the fact that in many vehicles it’s located inside the gas tank. The good news is that Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove is just around the corner and ready to help you out with any fuel injection issues, including sharing this valuable information. Your vehicle’s fuel pump is the lifeline of your vehicle’s fuel injection system. Without it, fuel has no way to leave the gas tank, which will quickly turn off your engine. Additionally, a faulty fuel pump isn’t very common in newer vehicles but when your vehicle has a few years on the road things just start to wear out.

As previously mentioned, the fuel pump is often located inside the gas tank, and attaches to a float and electrical connections that update you on how much fuel is in the gas tank. It sucks up fuel and sends it through lines to the injectors, which meter out the proper quantity for combustion. These pumps must meet manufacturer specifications for fuel volume. If it doesn’t meet up to these standards, you run into all sorts of problems. If your fuel pump is on it’s way out there are a few signs you’ll notice before getting stranded. Some of the more obvious sign are your vehicle suddenly feels sluggish or faulty ignition, engine misfires, lowered gas mileage, weak acceleration and whining noises can mean you may want to visit Orozco’s Auto Service.

Additional issues may be the fuel pressure is low, you might have trouble starting your vehicle. It may crank longer than normal before firing up, or you might have to cycle the key on and off several times to prime the necessary pressure. Once it runs, you might get a rough idle or stuttering while driving up hills or upon acceleration. It may even just stall out and quit, or it might result in misfires.

You may find that your engine temperature is higher than usual, as it struggles to keep up with uneven fuel supply. Occasionally, a failing pump will cause an engine to surge, because it’s no longer capable of consistent volume. You might hear the fuel pump itself struggling, which sounds like a whining or loud buzzing noise coming from the gas tank. The last clue you may notice at the gas station when filling your tank: Pumps on their way out reduce efficiency, which means your mileage will suffer, something nobody wants these days.

Note that most of the above symptoms on their own might have other causes, but if you see one or more together, then it’s time to contact Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove for a conclusive diagnosis today at 714-537-0076 or stop by. Remember to always keep your vehicle in good condition and ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and those around you!

Muffler Repair On Your Own Vehicle

Muffler Repair

 

Garden Grove Muffler Repair

 

Many Garden Grove drivers don’t know much about muffler repair also that your exhaust system does so much more than just give you a peaceful ride. It also directs exhaust fumes away from you and your passengers, to improves your engines performance, it improves fuel consumption and lastly your catalytic converter that is part of your exhaust system helps to keep pollutants from escaping into our air. Something Orozco’s Auto Service always makes an effort to help improve.

To get a better understanding of your exhaust systems is learning about the variety of components from your engine to the tailpipe. To start from the beginning of your engines exhaust journey we can start with the exhaust manifold (sometimes referred to as headers) to remove combustion gases from the cylinders. The manifold is linked to a catalytic converter that cleans up the chemical mixture before sending it down the line to a resonator and the muffler, both of which mute the volume of sound produced when the gases roar through the metal pipes.

With this extensive collection of components there’s are several possibilities for an exhaust leak and they are as loud as the traditional broken muffler sound. Each of the exhaust system parts listed above are connected through welds and flanges, and with time and corrosion, these connections can start to loosen. One of the initial signs that exhaust gases are escaping prematurely is a ticking that gets louder or faster when you hit the gas. A ticking sound can also indicate a crack in an exhaust manifold or a hole in any part of the exhaust system. Depending on how serious the leak is, it can often be repaired with a patch or a fresh weld with the experts at Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove.

Luckily, mufflers don’t just stop working overnight without first giving you a few clues that something not right. Usually, a muffler will usually last from 40,000 to 80,000 miles depending on the weather conditions in your area. Excessive water and salt on the the roads for snow can speed up the degradation which will in turn get incrementally louder as the interior chambers and sound-deadening materials break down. It’s not always easy to detect initially, but eventually you’ll notice that your vehicle is getting significantly louder. This generally means either there’s a large break in the exhaust system or your muffler that’s on its way out. Either way, this is the opportune time to Visit Orozco’s Auto Service and have it checked out.
