Can My Rusted Toyota Frame Be Repaired?

Can My Rusted Toyota Frame Be Repaired?

Can my rusted Toyota frame be repaired? In most cases yes. The common rust out areas on Tacoma's and 4-Runners can usually be repaired by installing repair kits that until recently became available in the aftermarket. Performing these repairs will bring the vehicle back to service safely when prevoiusly it would be headed for the junk yard. The preparation for the installation of the caps is quite extensive. All rusted out areas are cut out and the remaining metal is resurfaced to be treated with rust inhibitor and and painted. Though the cap kits are good they require some work as to creating the holes for brackets and side steps to be bolted back in place. All in all the finished product is very nice when complete. If you have any issue with your rusted Toyota frame bring it to us for advice on what can be done

How Much To Fix My Frame?

How Much To Fix My Frame?

How much to fix my frame? We hear that often from a customer after they have tried to have an alignment performed at a tire store. The tire store can”t get the alignment angles to where they need to be and assume the problem is a bent frame. To give an accurate estimate of what it will take to get the vehicle back in alignment we need to diagnose the problem. First we take alignment measurements so they give us a idea of what is the concern and at what wheel(s). Then our technicians determine from the alignment measurements and futher examination of the suspension, frame and/or unibody what is bent, what can be straightened and what needs to be replaced. Occasionally we can perform an alignment with installing aftermarket products that allow for adjustment where the factory does not give us any. In either case we have been returning vehicles back into proper alignment for 64 years. Give u ... read more

How Much Is A Tune-Up?

How Much Is A Tune-Up?

How much is a tune-up? We get calls asking this very question several times a week. A tune-up is actually a misnomer with the vehicles on the road today. In reality, the question really should be about when the vehicle manufacturer recommends replacing filters (air and fuel), spark plugs and wires. If the vehicle is exhibiting poor performance, it should be properly diagnosed to find the problem, not just replacing parts in the hope they will correct the problem. Regular vehicle checkups and maintenance will help you keep your vehicle safe and reliable. At Framerite Auto Repair,our mechanics perform Digital Vehicle Inspections that can be emailed or sent by text to you so that you can see exactly what the technician sees. Let us show you how we use the latest technology with a personal touch

What Is A Timing Belt and Why Do I Have to Have It Replaced?

What Is A Timing Belt and Why Do I Have to Have It Replaced?

The timing belt is very important in the working of your engine. Valves in your engine need to open and close at just the right time, to allow air and fuel in, the fuel to burn and then allow the exhaust to escape. Your timing belt is in charge of this process. In a worse case scenario, a valve can open at the wrong time and slam into the piston. If this happens, the end result could be a very expensive repair bill. Timing belts wear out over time and should be replaced according to factory recommended schedule. This is to be sure that it is replaced before it gets to the point of causing problems. Sometimes they break or are worn and have the teeth stripped, causing a loss of function.

As always, our mechanics at ... read more
