At Champion Auto-Truck-Fleet Service in Dayton, OH, we know that transmissions are witchcraft to most people. More often than not, if major damage has occurred, it’s a lot more time and cost effective to just replace the entire unit and get a fresh start. Here’s what to look out for, from Champion Auto-Truck-Fleet Service in Dayton, OH.
You’ve determined it’s time to get rid of the engine you have, along with all of its issues. You’re probably considering getting something new altogether, and you’re tired of this one giving you issues. Champion Auto-Truck-Fleet Service in Dayton, OH is here to help you make the call.
If your car, truck, or SUV has really been put through the wringer, it might be time for a new one. However, before you decide to throw in the towel there are a few things you should consider.
Your alternator is a central component on any engine. The alternator is responsible for powering anything electronic on your vehicle, including the coils that fire your spark plugs (unless it’s a diesel). At Champion Auto-Truck-Fleet Service in Dayton, OH, we know a bad alternator when we see one - here’s how you can spot one too.
A quality product is only as good as the quality of the installation. You’re dropping some serious money on an engine replacement, on a car that’s worth even more. Champion Auto-Truck-Fleet Service in Dayton, OH is here to make sure you get the quality install you need.
Once your engine is installed, you’ll want to keep it running right. Champion Auto-Truck-Fleet Service in Dayton, OH has you covered. Sometimes, engines just wear out - however, most of the time they meet an early demise as a result of improper maintenance. Keep your engine running like new by maintaining it the way your technician recommends.
If you drive a lightweight car, truck, or SUV, the torque converter you have installed is probably just fine. For those of you with more heavy duty applications, like high horsepower setups or towing rigs, the stock converter may not be enough. At Champion Auto-Truck-Fleet Service in Dayton, OH, we can help with that.
Obviously, your brakes are pretty important. Your brake system is made of many components that all have to work correctly for your brakes to operate seamlessly. If one thing needs to be repaired, the whole system is compromised. Brake pads, rotors, hoses, calipers, and metal lines all play a part in stopping your car. At Champion Auto-Truck-Fleet Service in Dayton, OH, we’re here to make sure your car, truck, or SUV stops as it should.
Do you have a noisy vehicle? If so, you may need a new muffler or exhaust system from our team here at Champion Auto-Truck-Fleet Service in Dayton. The purpose of your exhaust system is not only to reduce the noise but also to redirect fumes away from your vehicle. Redirecting these fumes protects passengers in the car from toxins created by burning fuel.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless chemical that can escape from an unsecured exhaust system, and if inhaled can pose very serious health hazards. If you experience an unusually loud sound coming from your vehicle, it is vital to get your exhaust system checked immediately!
