Richardson Car Repair Services From Road Masters Auto Serivce:

What are the typical symptoms of engine problems and what are your options? This could include everything from excessive smoke from the tailpipe to oil consumption or “burning”. You may hear knocking or tapping sounds. Sometimes your oil pressure gauge may show low or high oil pressure. You could have water mixing with oil. Oil may be soaking the air cleaner and/or radiator. Some engine wear is normal and expected from older cars and trucks. Good routine maintenance can reduce these issues before they start. But what if you find yourself with these problems today? Now what? Time to call the best car repair in Richardson. When an engine “dies,” it doesn’t necessarily mean your car is ready for the junkyard. Road Masters Auto Service wants you to know all the options available to you. That enables you to make the best decisions. One option you can explore when faced with extensive engine work is to just buy another car or truck. Sometimes getting another vehicle is the right call, but often it’s not the best financial decision. If your car or truck is in relatively good shape you should consider rebuilding or replacing the engine, rather than replacing the vehicle. Once you consider the “hidden” costs in a new or used vehicle, the economic benefits of this option become clear.

Steering is one of the things we often take for granted in our cars and trucks here in Richardson. Steering can be broken down into two areas: the main component is the power assist and second is the actual parts that steer your car. Most folks around here that are under 40 have probably never operated a vehicle without power steering. Most cars and trucks today have a hydraulic power steering pump that provides a little “boost” to help you steer. The pump can be driven by the serpentine belt, but some newer cars actually have an electric pump. Some other new cars and trucks even have an electric motor that directly powers your steering mechanisms. It helps to remember that these pumps and motors, like all other mechanical devices, will eventually wear out. Belts will eventually crack and hoses will eventually start to leak. You can delay or postpone that day by having your power steering serviced by Road Masters Auto Service. Our ASE certified techs will drain the old fluid and replace it with fresh fluid. Doing this removes water and contaminants that can corrode your power steering parts. Ask Christine for the recommended change interval for your car or truck.

What about the actual mechanical steering parts? Can you do anything you can do to maintain them? Yes. If any of the steering parts can be lubed, your technician will take care of that with a lube, oil and filter service. Then the important thing is to watch for signs that parts are wearing out like loose steering or tires that don’t wear evenly. Thanks to the “pot hole fairy” we have lots of divots and craters all over the roadways around Richardson. So even new or working parts can be bent or damaged from hitting these potholes. Curbs that jump right out in front of your car can also cause issues with your suspension and steering. It’s important to take care of these problems early on. Damaged parts that are neglected can cause unnecessary stress on other components and cause a chain reaction of failures and incremental damage. Steering maintenance is fairly rudimentary: Replace the power steering fluid as your manufacturer recommends and fix worn or damaged parts quickly. That’ll save you money in the long run.

Now we’re talking transmissions. These are the duty pieces of your power train that are designed to last a long time. But like any other machine, they’ll eventually wear out and need some amount of repair. What can you do to push that day off as far as possible? Start by making sure your transmission always has enough fluid and the right fluid. These fluids cool and lubricate your entire transmission. When you’re running low, your transmission will run hotter and wear out faster. The transmission fluid also allows the pressure needed to transfer power from the engine to the transmission, moving your car down the road. If you don’t have enough fluid, your transmission won’t shift properly and could “slip”. Road Masters Auto Service will check all your fluid levels with a full service oil change and top it off when needed. If you ever notice any reddish color transmission fluid on the driveway bring your vehicle by so we can check for leaks. A gasket, hose or seal could be wearing out and may need to be repaired.

You can also extend the life of your transmission by replacing the transmission fluid and filter as scheduled. As you can imagine, all those gears wearing against one another can result in lots of tiny pieces of metal in the fluid. The more of that there is, the faster your transmission will wear out. Transmission fluids will also contains detergents and other beneficial additives to protect your power train. These additives are depleted over time, so older fluids don’t protect as well as newer fluids will. Your car or truck owner’s manual will have a recommendation for when you should have a transmission service. If you’re unsure, just call Road Masters Auto Service. We’re the best car repair in Richardson. If your transmission isn’t shifting as smoothly as a Texas politician, or if you think you notice a leak, let us take a look at it. And ask if it’s time for a transmission service. We need the money and you need the service. Hey; win-win right there! Just like with a spouse, a little regular maintenance goes a long, long way towards keeping a good working relationship.

Nope, we’re not light headed from smelling engine fumes. We know this has nothing to do with power door locks or window actuators.
