cars in city with lots of exhaust

Do you have a noisy vehicle? If so, you may need a new muffler or exhaust system from our team here at Autoworks in Ithaca. The purpose of your exhaust system is not only to reduce the noise but also to redirect fumes away from your vehicle. Redirecting these fumes protects passengers in the car from toxins created by burning fuel.

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless chemical that can escape from an unsecured exhaust system, and if inhaled can pose very serious health hazards. If you experience an unusually loud sound coming from your vehicle, it is vital to get your exhaust system checked immediately!

Once you know what's in your transmission, and what’s connected to it, it’s much easier to understand how it works. Let's take a look at how it all comes together. At Autoworks in Ithaca, NY, we want to make sure you know how your car works so you can keep it in great condition.

Manual transmissions aren’t necessarily simple, but they’re much easier to understand in concept than their automatic counterparts. You’re probably aware there are gears in manual transmissions - but there’s a little more to it than that. Here are some of the major components you’ll find in a manual transmission.

starter motor of a car

When a vehicle has trouble starting, many people initially blame the starter. What is the starter, and how do you know if yours has called it quits? At Autoworks in Ithaca, NY, we want to keep you informed and telling you what to look for will prevent further damage when issues arise. The starter is essentially just an electric motor; a gear at the end of that electric motor engages the flywheel, which turns the engine over, allowing it to start. How do you know if yours is failing?

At Autoworks we have been providing drivers in Ithaca, NY with a variety of services since 2001.

We enjoy being able to take something, such as classic cars and restore it back to its original beauty. We have put a great deal of work into the restoration of this 1981 Firebird and love that way that it has turned out.
