What To Do When the TPMS Light Comes On

What To Do When the TPMS Light Comes On

If you notice the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) light lit up on your dashboard, it likely means that one or more of your tires is under-inflated. Your TPMS will alert lower tire pressure conditions before the problem escalates so that you can avoid a slow, flat tire or even a full-blown tire blowout. No driver wants to be stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire, embarrassing as it can be. That's why it's important to know what the TPMS light on your dashboard means and what you should do when it comes on. The TPMS light is generally shaped like an exclamation point inside of a U-shaped tire, with an arrow pointing counter-clockwise. If you see this light, the TPMS is telling you that at least one of your tires has an air pressure that is below the 'target pressure' set in the TPMS software. The primary cause of a low tire pressure condition is typically a slow leak in the tire, which might require an immediate tire pressure check. The most effective w ... read more

Mechanic Near Me in Stockton, CA

Searching for "mechanic near me" in Stockton will yield a variety of auto repair shops, but how to decide which one to select? We thought about it ourselves, and here is a list of a few indicators – if the “mechanic near me” you found fits these criteria, there is a good chance you found an auto repair garage that will serve you well. Here are a few indicators to look for: First thing is to check their Yelp and Google ratings and reviews. Both what the reviewers say, as well as the responses from the shop. Does the auto repair shop work on the brands you own? Some shops specialize in a narrow range of vehicles, for example German only, or only Japanese vehicles. Do they employ mechanics that are ASE certified? Does the shop offer Digital Vehicle Inspections?

Rotten Egg Smell: What Does It Mean for My Car?

Rotten Egg Smell: What Does It Mean for My Car?

Your car, truck, or SUV can emit smells for various reasons. Some of them may pass, and you might not ever catch them again, while some other odors can linger. One problematic scent we will discuss today is the rotten eggs stench. If you smell a rotten egg or sulfur-like smell coming from your car, it can indicate several problems, ranging from minor to severe. Here are some possible reasons why your vehicle may have a foul egg smell: Faulty catalytic converter: The catalytic converter converts harmful gases into harmless ones before they leave your car's exhaust system. It can cause a rotten egg smell if it fails, as the catalyst doesn't correctly alter the exhaust fumes. Overheating engine: An overheating engine can also produce a sulfur smell, which can be a sign of a coolant leak. Most commonly, we find that coolant will leak into the engine's combustion chamber to produce the scent. Broken fuel pressure regulator: A fractured fuel pressure regulator can lead to exc ... read more

Toyota Ignition Coil Replacement in Stockton, CA

Toole’s Garage in Stockton is a family owned and operated independent auto care facility that can provide your Toyota with full range of services and repairs, including ignition coil replacement.

Audi Timing Chain Replacement in Stockton, CA

Audi timing belt replacement is a normal part of maintenance. But what if your Audi has a timing chain, not a timing belt? Timing chains are supposed to last for the lifetime of the vehicle, right?  The short answer is “yes and no”. In principle, a timing chain should last for as long as the car is drivable. But in real life, we run into problems that shorten the useful lifespan of a timing chain. As a result, the need for timing chain replacement for your Audi is a real possibility. Timing chains rarely break, but they do stretch. A stretched timing chain (or incorrectly functioning timing chain tensioner) can result in a failure to synchronize opening and closing of the valves with the movement of the pistons. If they get out of synch, it could cause catastrophic engine damage. Signs of a loose timing chain: The engine is rattling while idling or during startup: You know what your car should sound like when you start it. If you hear a rattle on sta ... read more

Subaru AC Refill in Stockton, CA

Your Subaru was not just designed to shield you from the summer sun but also to keep you cool when the weather is hot. All you have to do is to get in the car, turn on the AC and wait for cool air to be distributed in the cabin. Unfortunately, this may not always be the case as your AC may stop working. Quite often you can resolve the problem by getting a Subaru AC refill service to get the a/c system blowing cool air again. How your Subaru’s AC system works Like most vehicles, your Subaru comes with an air conditioning system that uses a refrigerant to provide cool air. The refrigerant is a gas, it is converted to liquid under pressure, and as it flows through the high and low pressure parts of the a/c system, it changes between gas and liquid state, and these changes create cooling effect.   By design, the refrigerant in your vehicle should never run out. If the refrigerant ever runs low, it’s likely because there’s a leak. At Toole’s ... read more
