This 2009 Subaru Legacy has a common head gasket issue that Integrity Automotive sees on a regular basis. All Subaru’s made before 2010 come with a head gasket that will start to lose it’s seal over time. This is an issue because if left unchecked the coolant and oil may mix causing irreparable damage to the car’s engine.

This issue is hard for customers to notice. Issues like this are why Integrity Automotive’ s certified repair specialists recommend customers come to us for their oil changes. Our certified mechanics take extra time to do more thorough inspections of your cars and trucks. This
includes looking for oil and coolant residue between the cylinder head and block which is a tell-tale sign of this issue.

If the Subaru head gasket is ignored long enough, the customer may notice an overheating issue or loss of coolant with no external drips underneath the vehicle.

If you do not know the last time your car has been thoroughly inspected, call Integrity Automotive to schedule your car inspection today!

Integrity Automotive Does Standard Service Checks and Inspections

Our certified mechanics keep up-to-date on the latest recalls and manufacturer recommendations for all vehicles. The owner of this 2007 Cadillac Escalade came in for a 90,000-mile standard service check.

Depending on the mileage and the vehicle, service checks can be simple inspections and/or replacement of minor items such as filters, belts or hoses. If you don’t remember the last time your car has had a service check (sorry to be the bearer of bad news but quickie oil changes don’t count) or you are close to a 30,000, 60,000 or 90,000 mile milestone, it’s probably time.

Trust us; your car and your pocketbook will thank you. The problems won’t go away if you ignore them; they just get worse and often more expensive if ignored. So, call Integrity Automotive today.

At Integrity Automotive our goal is to honestly inform our customers of their options and let them choose what is best for their car/truck and their pocket book. Integrity Automotive prides itself on its upfront pricing with no hidden costs and whenever possible gives the customer multiple options to fit their needs and price range.

In this example we pulled these parts off a 2015 Chevy Tahoe but any Chevy V8 from 2004-2017 might have this same issue. So, Chevy owners, take note!

This tiny little piece of technology (aka displacement on demand system) is what helps your gas mileage when you are driving around town, but if left unchecked could damage your engine and/or your catalytic convertor.

How does the displacement on demand system work? Well, when you aren’t pulling something or going up hill you don’t need all eight cylinders so this little feat of modern car technology goes into gear and shuts off the cylinders you don’t need. Sounds great until it doesn’t…

If you have a Chevy V8, and you have noticed a tick, backfire or misfire this might be the problem. Give Integrity Automotive’s car specialists a call today to schedule an appointment before this little problem becomes a big one.

This 2006 GMC Yukon was a big investment for our customer, and they were not ready to invest in a new one. They started hearing strange noises and knew something wasn’t quite right under the hood. They did the right thing and brought it to Integrity Automotive and had our certified car specialists investigate. Unfortunately, they did not get the best news. Their Yukon needed a new engine, BUT with the 3-year unlimited warranty our remanufactured engines offer it was much better news than having to buy a new one.

The warranties Integrity Automotive offers on their remanufactured engines are second to none. The warranty includes unlimited mileage AND labor for any issues. The only items customers pay for are supplies, fluids and waste.

If you have an older vehicle that you would like to keep, give Integrity Automotive a call and our certified mechanics can do a FREE inspection to ensure your car or truck stays on the road.

This 2003 GMC Yukon’s owner is a great example of a car owner who paid attention to their car or truck. The customer noticed as the weather started getting colder that their Yukon wasn’t running as well when it started, but after it warmed up it was fine. Rather than ignore the issue they brought their GMC to Integrity Automotive to have it inspected by one of our certified car repairmen. After closer inspection, it was discovered that the intake manifold gaskets were leaking. When the car was cold the gaskets would shrink. As the truck warmed up, the gaskets would expand sealing the leak. This was a relatively easy manifold gasket replacement but could have been worse and could have caused additional damage if ignored.
