Check Engine Light

Check Engine Light

Is your check engine light on? If you watch the attached video you will get a great laugh but is obviously not the way to fix it. Your check engine light could be lit for a very minor issue. Or there could be something major going on with your engine. When your light goes on, there is so much more involved than the need to “pull a code”. The code gives you a starting point for finding out what is going on. It's like a fire alarm going off, alerting you that there is a fire somewhere in a 100 story building. You don't want to just throw parts at a problem and hope that it is fixed. You want the problem fixed right the first time. Our mechanics have the knowledge, tools and experience to do do just that! Give us a call and we will have you confidently driving down the road again in no time! http://bit.ly/2FXDh4I

Does My Car Need A Mechanic?

Does My Car Need A Mechanic?

When deciding if you need to take your car to a mechanic use 4 of your senses: what you feel, hear, see and smell. Do you feel anything unusual? Does you steering wheel shake? Do you feel a vibration? Do you hear anything unusual? Are there clunking noises or squeaking sounds? Do you hear a noise when turning? Do you see anything unusual? Are any of your dashboard lights on? Do you see fluid in your driveway or on the street? Finally, do you smell something strange? There could be a gas or oil odor, or even the smell of something burning. This is not meant to include everything but it does give you some things to think about. The other thing I would tell you is to go with your gut. If it doesn't seem right, get it checked out. You can always stop by or call for an appointment and our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you. Our experience technicians are all ASE Certified and here to help. call us

Why Is My Check Engine Light On?

Why Is My Check Engine Light On?

Your check engine light can come on for many reasons. It can come on for something serious, like a possible engine or transmission problem to something minor, such as a loose gas cap. The video helps to explain that “pulling a code” is much like using a thermometer. It tells you that you have a fever, but why do you have a fever? The codes that are retrieved give the symptom, (the fever), but what is the cause of the problem? The important thing is to have a trained technician diagnose the problem. Our technicians at Framerite have the training, experience and expertise to diagnose the cause of your check engine light. A flashing check engine light is telling you that severe damage can occur if you continue to drive the car. This must be evaluated immediately. We are your complete car care center and are ready to help. Give us a call if you have any questions or if we can help in any way. Watch this short video for additional information ... read more

Vehicle Inspection

Vehicle Inspection

When your car comes in for an oil change, our certified technicians perform a complimentary vehicle inspection, also known as a courtesy check. They actually perform a digital vehicle inspection, or DVI for short. We are one of the only shops in the area offering this to customers. You receive an email that includes our entire evaluation, including photos. You will actually see what the technicians saw when they evaluated your vehicle. You will see the areas that are in good condition, areas that we need to keep an eye on and areas that are of concern. All at no charge to you! This particular evaluation saved our customer money. She purchased this “certified vehicle” about 2 1/2 months ago and brought the vehicle in to see us for an oil change. Upon inspection, the front and rear brakes were at 2 and 3 mm respectively, requiring replacement. Obviously this should not be the case in a recently purchased vehicle. She initally called the place where she purchased ... read more
