AUTO REPAIR & MAINTENANCE BLOG

Maintaining your vehicle at home is a satisfying way to keep your motoring costs down. With the right knowledge and products even someone who isn't very mechanically inclined can take care of many of the smaller issues in everyday driving. Sometimes, however, car issues can be too specialized or complex for the average motorist to take care of by themselves and it becomes time to take your car to the pros. Below you'll find three major warning signs that you need to get to a mechanic ASAP, as well as some of the potential causes behind them.



Engine and Drivetrain Problems

Let's start at the beginning. If your car won't even turn over and start up, then the rest of the problems on this list won't come into play. The simplest cause of this issue is a dead battery, which you can remedy with jumper cables, and the instructions that come printed on their packaging. If jumping the car doesn't work, you may have a larger problem with your ignition system. It's advisable to take your car into the shop at this point because finding the root of the problem will likely involve removing a few parts from your engine. Whether it's dead spark plugs or electrical problems, it's better to have it dealt with by a professional. Likewise, engine surging where the revs rise and fall can mean a problem with your fuel injectors, which are fairly deep within your motor. It's unwise to drive around with a surging engine, as this burns more gas and can cause unintended acceleration. Drivetrain issues are another major issue requiring professional attention. Everybody fears the dreaded transmission repairs, so if certain gears won't engage or they shift at the wrong times you should definitely take your car to the qualified mechanics here at Eagle Towing Auto Repairs.



Vibration While Driving

This issue can be caused by damaged drivetrain components, but can also stem from misaligned wheels or unbalanced or flat tires. If you feel any vibration or shuddering as you drive along, you should get to a mechanic as soon as you can. At its worst, this issue can lessen your control over the car, potentially causing accidents. This will also wear out your tires more quickly than if everything was straight and true. Unwanted vibrations put stress on important (and costly) components like suspension and brakes while decreasing gas mileage, so it's smart to take your car in as soon as these issues develop.



Poor Braking Performance

Your brakes are vital to keeping you safe on the road and should definitely be cared for by a professional, unless you're absolutely sure you know what you're doing. Common signs of issues with your car's braking system include squeaking or squealing when the brakes are applied, or the brakes feeling spongy and failing to slow your vehicle properly. Squealing brakes are caused by the brake pads wearing through the pad surface to the metal underneath. At this point the metal behind your brake pad is coming into contact with the brake rotor. This can be disastrous and produce unwanted heat, reduced stopping power, and cause you to have to buy new rotors as well as the relatively cheap pads. Spongey and weak brakes can mean there's a problem with your master cylinder, which converts the mechanical pressure of you pressing the pedal into hydraulic pressure to apply the brakes. In either case, it's best to have your brakes seen to by the professional mechanics here at Eagle Towing Auto Repairs.



There are instances where car maintenance is simple and easy, but if you notice any of these issues developing, it's best to take your car in for a qualified mechanic's checkup so the problems can be remedied before they turn into much more serious issues. Eagle Towing Auto Repairs has the tools and expertise to have you safely back on the road in no time at all.

    The folks at Eagle Towing and Repair were fantastic from the gal who answered the phone to the tow truck driver! They dispatched someone immediately and we were at the dealership within an hour of the transmission going out on our Envoy on I-75. Thank you all for such professional, courteous service.

    Awesome guys! I broke down on my way home to Georgia and they came and towed me to the shop. The owner stayed after hours to get me back up and running that night! Can't say enough about these guys! Awesome people and awesome prices!

    Excellent. I had an usual request and Eagle Towing stepped up to the job. I bought a used 10 ft x 8 ft hot tub weighing 1,115 pounds. Had them come out to seller's house where they winched it right up onto the flat bed then drove it to my house, backed up the truck to offload right onto my deck. Very quick response, great experience. Thanks guys.

    After having a blown out engine and transmission on a 3 year old car, calling several places around town getting ridiculous prices ranging up to a new car cost and no sense of urgency, I ran across this shop. The owner is amazing, has a sense of urgency and is absolutely forthright and honest. By far the BEST PRICE in town. Excellent communication!! I would give this shop 10 stars if possible. Take all your auto needs here...please. An actual shop with personal mechanic prices. Brilliant!
