AUTO REPAIR & MAINTENANCE BLOG, Warren, MI

Maintaining your vehicle at home is a satisfying way to keep your motoring costs down. With the right knowledge and products even someone who isn't very mechanically inclined can take care of many of the smaller issues in everyday driving. Sometimes, however, car issues can be too specialized or complex for the average motorist to take care of by themselves and it becomes time to take your car to the pros. Below you'll find three major warning signs that you need to get to a mechanic ASAP, as well as some of the potential causes behind them.



Engine and Drivetrain Problems

Let's start at the beginning. If your car won't even turn over and start up, then the rest of the problems on this list won't come into play. The simplest cause of this issue is a dead battery, which you can remedy with jumper cables, and the instructions that come printed on their packaging. If jumping the car doesn't work, you may have a larger problem with your ignition system. It's advisable to take your car into the shop at this point because finding the root of the problem will likely involve removing a few parts from your engine. Whether it's dead spark plugs or electrical problems, it's better to have it dealt with by a professional. Likewise, engine surging where the revs rise and fall can mean a problem with your fuel injectors, which are fairly deep within your motor. It's unwise to drive around with a surging engine, as this burns more gas and can cause unintended acceleration. Drivetrain issues are another major issue requiring professional attention. Everybody fears the dreaded transmission repairs, so if certain gears won't engage or they shift at the wrong times you should definitely take your car to the qualified mechanics here at Ron's Auto Care.



Vibration While Driving

This issue can be caused by damaged drivetrain components, but can also stem from misaligned wheels or unbalanced or flat tires. If you feel any vibration or shuddering as you drive along, you should get to a mechanic as soon as you can. At its worst, this issue can lessen your control over the car, potentially causing accidents. This will also wear out your tires more quickly than if everything was straight and true. Unwanted vibrations put stress on important (and costly) components like suspension and brakes while decreasing gas mileage, so it's smart to take your car in as soon as these issues develop.



Poor Braking Performance

Your brakes are vital to keeping you safe on the road and should definitely be cared for by a professional, unless you're absolutely sure you know what you're doing. Common signs of issues with your car's braking system include squeaking or squealing when the brakes are applied, or the brakes feeling spongy and failing to slow your vehicle properly. Squealing brakes are caused by the brake pads wearing through the pad surface to the metal underneath. At this point the metal behind your brake pad is coming into contact with the brake rotor. This can be disastrous and produce unwanted heat, reduced stopping power, and cause you to have to buy new rotors as well as the relatively cheap pads. Spongey and weak brakes can mean there's a problem with your master cylinder, which converts the mechanical pressure of you pressing the pedal into hydraulic pressure to apply the brakes. In either case, it's best to have your brakes seen to by the professional mechanics here at Ron's Auto Care.



There are instances where car maintenance is simple and easy, but if you notice any of these issues developing, it's best to take your car in for a qualified mechanic's checkup so the problems can be remedied before they turn into much more serious issues. Ron's Auto Care has the tools and expertise to have you safely back on the road in no time at all.

Ron and the rest of the crew do a really good job of making sure you know exactly what you need and not try to oversell things. I've taken all of the cars I have ever had to them and got great service every time. They also made sure you're able to get where you need to go while they work on my cars for prolonged periods of time! Highly recommend them to anyone who's looking for good auto service.

I am very happy with the professional service and value. Each time I have taken my car here for service it has been repaired and the cost has been reasonable - much less than at the dealership. The service back and forth to my house while the car is in the shop is an added bonus. The staff is courteous and very helpful in solving my car issues. I highly recommend this shop.

Everyone was very nice. They gave me a free ride home while they worked on my car. I came in with exhaust issue. I thought for sure it would be expensive, but it turned out to be just a couple of gaskets and price was much lower than I expected. I will definitely be back with my next car problem!

You can always count on Ron's. When I had problem with my tire, they were not hesitant and were there to lend a hand for a very generous fee. I also had a problem with my other car, and it was them who was able to fix it. Thank you Ron's, a gem close to home!!! - Edna/Rodel Encabo

Been going to Ron's for a couple of years after he won my business by providing the best customer service and a team of mechanics second to none. I've never had an issue setting an appointment and the turn around time on fixing our issues has exceeded expectations every time. Please, if you need a shop that cares... go see Ron.

Ron's Auto Care is the real deal, they took care of my issue same day and I was good to go in about two hours. In addition to the quick service, the price was fair. I was traveling cross country for my job and my car is my money so I know how important a good mechanic is. Greatly appreciated Ron's hospitality and if I'm ever by Warren and need a mechanic, I'm headed to Ron's.
