When you own a vehicle, you should have a place you can trust to do everything you need when it comes to complete auto repair services and maintenance. Many places only provide minor maintenance and repair, such as oil changes and replacing air filters, CV axles, alternators, and other minor parts.

Signs You Need Complete Auto Repair Services in Chandler AZ
In most cases, your vehicle will give you signs that it needs repairs, including the following:
1. Check Engine Light
Your vehicle uses sensors and computers to manage emissions. When something goes wrong with the engine, and the computer cannot compensate for it, the computer illuminates the check engine light on the dash.
2. Strange Noises
You shouldn’t hear weird noises, such as grinding, squeaking, squaling, banging and thumping, when driving. If you do, something is definitely wrong. Banging from the engine is usually a bad sign. Brakes could squeal, squeak or grind. Worn suspension parts and CV axles could make noise. Whenever you hear a strange noise, you should always get it checked out at Mac’s Complete Auto Repair to ensure your vehicle is safe to drive.
3. The Oil Light Illuminates
Most vehicles have a gauge that shows oil pressure. Some, however, have only an oil light. When the oil light illuminates, you are already in trouble. Immediately turn the vehicle off and have it towed to Mac’s Complete Auto Repair. If you noticed the oil light immediately and shut the vehicle off, you might be lucky enough to put oil in the vehicle and be on your way. However, if you didn’t notice the light and continued driving, you could damage the engine.
Additionally, if you notice the oil pressure dropping, immediately stop the vehicle and shut it off, even if the oil light has not illuminated. Check the oil and top it off. Bring it to Mac’s Complete Auto Repair to check for oil leaks or broken rings.
4. The Temperature Gauge
Most vehicles have a temperature gauge. Some have a temperature light. If the light comes on, stop the vehicle and shut it off immediately. It is overheating.
If your vehicle has a temperature gauge, it should not run hotter than 195 degrees. Most vehicles have a thermostat that opens when the coolant temperature reaches 185 to 195 degrees. However, it takes time for the coolant to cycle through the radiator and cool off, so the temperature could reach 200 to 210 degrees. If it exceeds 210 degrees, immediately shut the vehicle off and let it cool off. If you are close to Mac’s Complete Auto Repair in Chandler AZ, you can drive the vehicle to us once it cools off. However, if you are more than 10 minutes away, it’s best to tow the vehicle, so you don’t risk overheating it.
You could have a leak in a hose or radiator, a head gasket problem, a stuck thermostat, or a fan not working.
