Regular maintenance checks of your vehicle will help you avoid a catalytic converter that looks like this resulting in large repair costs which is what our team here at Autoworks in Ithaca want to avoid at all costs! We feel that every customer has a need to know what repairs are in their future and exactly how to budget for them if need be so we check your vehicle thoroughly and keep you informed.
There are several indicators that your catalytic converter isn't functioning at maximum capacity such as:
Does your car, truck, or SUV shift at the wrong moment? Autoworks in Ithaca has the solution. Shift point issues can manifest themselves in two ways; either your car will rapidly shift through several or all the gears at low speed, low rpm, getting to the highest gear before you’ve gained enough momentum, or shifts will be delayed, the transmission refusing to shift until far into the RPM range.
Your drive belts run everything - your AC, power steering, alternator, and water pump are all dependent on the belts that turn them. At Autoworks in Ithaca, our goal is to keep your truck maintained, so you’re never stuck out on the road. Drive belts are a critical part of that goal.
At Autoworks in Ithaca, routine maintenance and repair isn’t the only thing we do. For custom parts installation, you can also count on us. Common modification enthusiasts do is swapping to a short-throw shifter; but what actually is a short-throw shifter, and what does it do?
On all modern vehicles, electronic engine controls have truly changed the game in terms of performance, efficiency, and reliability. On diesel trucks, whether you drive a Chevy, Dodge, or Ford, this innovation has been particularly revolutionary. The gains diesel engines have made in the past couple of decades are impressive by any standard, and electronic engine controls are a huge contributor to those developments.
Commercial trucks have heavy engines, and they spend a lot of time running, particularly at idle. As a result, the mounts that secure the engine to chassis of the truck have a tendency to wear out, causing all sorts of shaking and vibration that the driver will feel in the cab of the truck. At Autoworks in Ithaca, we can take care of that for you.
