Whenever there’s a car, truck or minivan in your possession, you’re in charge of making sure it gets the maintenance it requires to keep it running and serving you well. Check your owner’s manual to see when you should start bringing in your model for new drive belts, timing belts, oil changes, fluid checks and other necessities it requires to keep you keepin’ on.
If your vehicle is beginning to ride like a jalopy, your shocks/struts are likely to blame. Signs of ailing/aging shocks/struts include bouncy trips, ‘bottoming out’ when you hit a bump or dip in the road, front end ‘bowing/dipping’ during a sudden stop, a bouncy tire while driving down the road or loss of control when you brake quickly.
Here at Chuck’s Auto Repair we take ‘check engine light’ notices seriously. Although you may have no other indication (beyond the warning light) that your engine needs help, it’s always a good idea to stop by and have your engine checked out by one of our ASA-ASE/Master-certified mechanics.

Here at Chuck’s Auto Repair, we’ll inspect your clutch for wear and tear. We’ll investigate fly wheels, pressure plates, the entire intricate network. And when your clutch is misbehaving, chances are we’ll recommend complete assembly replacement simply because replacing clutch parts piecemeal can become a far-more-costly proposition than can simply taking care of the entire assembly at once.
Water is as vital to the life of your vehicle as it is to your own. The water that courses through the pump and various tubes keeps your engine cool and performs other crucial functions. So when your water pump starts misbehaving, you need to jump right on it and get it repaired or replaced (usually replaced).
