Integrity Automotive’s certified mechanic Chris wanted to talk today about recommended maintenance or scheduled maintenance of your vehicle. This 2002 Nissan Frontier came in about 6 months ago (at 140,000 miles) for other issues. Our car technician noticed the timing belt had not been replaced, which is recommended to be replaced at 120,000 mile, and recommended its replacement. The owner decided to wait…

 

;

Fast forward 6 months and our car technician got a call as the truck was not working properly, unfortunately for the owner in this case they waited too long and at 161,000 miles the timing belt broke. As you can see in this picture, the belt didn’t snap as what is commonly thought. Instead the rubber teeth in the timing belt that work similar to the teeth in a gear broke off. Integrity Automotive’s technician is still working on the extensive damage from the timing belt breaking.

Because the owner chose to put off the scheduled maintenance on this Nissan Frontier what could have been a few hundred dollars to repair will now be at least a few thousand dollars to repair.

Integrity Automotive Talks About Brake Noise

Integrity Automotive’s certified mechanic Chris is here to talk about that horrible noise we have all heard, the loud nails on chalkboard squeaking noise brake can make.

We are using this 2015 Toyota 2.5L Rav4 as a great example. The owner chose to bring their vehicle to Integrity Automotive when their vehicle started making that noise first thing in the morning.

In the video you will hear our mechanic Chris go into more detail in how brake pads have changed over the years. In order to make them last longer and to help car owners save money, brake pads are constantly being made out of harder and harder metal. Because of that when they are cold they make that noise we all hate. Once the car and brakes warm up a little bit, the brakes will stop making that noise and will work better.

Do you have squeaking brakes first thing in the morning?

As Integrity Automtotive’s technician points out, in this case, that the brakes are fine; and they just need time to warm up. If you can’t stand the noise, we can swap out your brake pads with a softer brake pad that will eliminate that noise; but they will not last as long. Either choice is up to you. 

If you have a question on your brakes, give Integrity Automotive a call today!

Integrity Automotive’s certified mechanics are often asked what is the difference between an oil change at Integrity and some of the faster drop- off locations around town?

The main answer we give our customers is our mechanics’ knowledge and experience.

Some of the other faster oil change shops in town only replace the oil and check a few fluid levels. At Integrity Automotive, since we already have your car up in the air, we take the opportunity to do an entire vehicle inspection. We check tires, brakes, drivetrain, batteries, headlights, windshield wipers, fluids, hoses and more.

Here is Integrity Automotive’s certified auto mechanic Chris talking about a 2009 Dodge 3500. This Dodge truck was purchased at a government auction. The customer won the auction at a very low price because of the known issue with the engine. In this case the customer did very well, purchasing this vehicle at a fraction of the cost of a new or comparable used truck. Our certified car repairman is pulling out the bad engine and replacing it with a remanufactured engine with a great warranty.

If you have a vehicle that you would like to keep around a while or would like to do the same as this customer did give Integrity Automotive a call today for more information or to schedule an appointment.

Here is our certified auto mechanic Chris talking about a 1990 Toyota Pickup Truck. What is important to note about this Toyota Pickup Truck is the good condition this truck is in. The owner of this truck understands the importance of regular car/truck maintenance and has brought it into Integrity Automotive for regular truck maintenance for years. Because this pickup truck has been so well maintained, 28 years later and this Toyota Pickup Truck is still running strong.

If you have a vehicle that you would like to keep around a while (even if it isn’t for 20 years) give Integrity Automotive a call today for a maintenance checkup.
