Engine Service

You’re driving along and suddenly your check engine light goes on. What does it mean? Your vehicle’s engine light is part of an intricate monitoring system and it could come on for a variety of reasons. At Automotive Techniques we have the latest diagnostic equipment that lets us pinpoint the problem and get you on your way again.

Warning Signs:

If your vehicle is stalling frequently, visit our car repair facility  where our licensed technicians can identify what’s causing this problem and offer an affordable, effective solution. Stalling in an automatic vehicle can be caused by quite a number of things, such as:

  • Low fuel pressure
  • Worn spark plugs
  • Clogged air filter
  • Faulty wiring
  • Seal leaks


An overheated engine can be a serious and startling problem – steam billowing from under the hood, the temperature gauge in the red or a red light on, strange sounds coming from the engine. Overheating can cause damage to the cooling system, radiator, piston rings, water pump, as well as the transmission and engine itself, and is an issue that needs immediate attention. Speedy car repair technicians know the various causes of overheating – coolant leak, slipped fan belt, radiator clogged, thermostat malfunction or failed head gasket, among others – and can solve this and other vehicle problems efficiently and affordably at one of our convenient car repair locations.

If your car’s engine is stalling or overheating, don’t try to guess the problem. Have one of our skilled car repair technicians examine your vehicle, identify the problem, repair your car and get you back on the road safely.


Maintaining a vehicle costs a little. Repairing it can cost a lot. You can save money by preventing trouble before it happens with regular tune ups. At Automotive Techniques we’ll help keep your vehicle running at its best and keep it running longer.

We make tune-ups as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  • Check that wiring is in good shape and that there are no loose connections
  • Check air, fuel and oil filters to help prevent overheating, stalling, and unnecessary engine wear
  • Check spark plugs to inspect for excessive wear and proper gapping

Sometimes it takes a mechanical inspection to discover that auto components are wearing out. If neglected, this can lead to inconvenient and expensive problems down the road. Tune ups ensure that minor issues are dealt with before they become major problems requiring costly repairs. Our skilled technicians will thoroughly inspect your vehicle, including the following:

  • exhaust system
  • brakes
  • suspension
  • steering
  • emission system
  • ignition timing
  • battery and charging system
  • spark plugs
  • belts and hoses
  • lights and turn signals
  • filters
  • radiator and coolant
  • tires (pressure and tread depth)
  • chassis, ball joints, control arms and constant-velocity (CV) boots
  • visual inspection of engine

The old saying is true: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Prevent car trouble and extend the life of your vehicle with a tune up at Automotive Techniques.
