REPAIRS YOU NEED AND WHY
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risk of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts.
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late, and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine – usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, but it also is better for you, your car, and the environment.
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit Fremont Auto Tech today.
Automatic Transmissions shift between gears automatically to optimize driving and change gears based on the driver's throttle pedal, vehicle speed, engine speed, and vehicle load. Typical automatic transmissions have 4-5 forward gear ratios, a Reverse, Park, and Neutral gear. Shifting gears occur automatically once the car is in drive and there is no need for a clutch pedal or gear shift like there is in a Manual Transmission. Automatic transmission repair is complicated based on all the components that make it up and you need to have any automatic transmission issues properly assessed by auto mechanics.
Driving a vehicle with a Manual Transmission requires using the clutch pedal and gear shift to manually shift gears based on the speed of the vehicle. Manual transmissions have been built with anywhere from two to eight gears. Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive are the two main configurations for manual transmissions. Typically, manual transmissions require less maintenance than automatic transmissions. At Fremont Auto Tech, our auto mechanics can diagnose your vehicle and then recommend the transmission repair or transmission service you need to ensure safety and improve the lifetime of your vehicle.
Air Conditioning & Heating
Why is maintaining your AC System very important?
Heating and A/C systems may eventually break with usage; or hose pipes may clog and drip if not serviced, causing reduced efficiency heating and cooling capabilities. Regular maintenance will keep your AC system operating at peak performance!
Indications your A/C system may be having issues:
If your air conditioning blows only slightly cooler air compared to the exterior air
Air that blows in smells damp, musty, or like mildew and mold
Your cabin does not warm up in cold weather or is just a little warmer than outside
The defroster takes longer than typical to operate, or does not operate
Your heater or A/C only functions when driving, not when idling, or quits blowing when the car is stationary
Your heating system blows cold air, or the air conditioning blows warm air
Low airflow even at the highest fan setting
A comprehensive evaluation of your heating and A/C system includes:
Examining the internal controls and blower
Checking radiator coolant operating temperature, hoses, pressure radiator cap, and thermostat
Inspecting the compressor belt
Inspecting system and seals for leaks or various other damages.
A cooling system pressure test
Verifying the A/C pressure meets manufacturer specifications
Measuring the interior vent air temperature
Radiators are heat exchangers for cooling your car's internal combustion engine by circulating an engine coolant through the engine block – it then loses the heat to the atmosphere through radiation. A radiator has a set of tubes through which the engine coolant flows. When the radiator fails, the excess heat produced by the engine could damage the engine components. To prevent this from happening, have your radiator serviced regularly.
Today, car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer's main function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors and controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors to get you the best possible car performance. Failure of the car computer will greatly affect the things it controls. To get the most out of your car's computer, have it evaluated regularly for updates and proper operation. If it is already failing, have it repaired or replaced.
