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
