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!
If there’s one thing we know at Autoworks in Ithaca, NY, its the importance of a transmission. While engines get a lot of the spotlight in conversations about vehicles, we know that the transmission is the unsung hero of your automobile. We want you to know just how important it is, too.

Exhaust issues aren’t typically a big deal, which means they tend to be neglected. As long as the truck is still running right, many people don’t make the time to have an issue taken care of. Plus, exhaust systems are particularly susceptible to problems.
Exhaust issues are extremely common, no matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive. At Autoworks in Ithaca, NY, we can get your exhaust back in shape in no time. Exhaust issues tend to be neglected, and we get that; there are just other parts of your vehicle that you'd rather focus on.

The differentials on your Ford, Chevrolet, or Dodge diesel pickup are some of the hardest working components on your truck. At Autoworks in Ithaca, our technicians are experts in maintaining, repairing, and replacing differentials, keeping your truck working reliable just as much as you do.
At Autoworks in Ithaca, we understand that safety and driving comfort are largely dependent on truck maintenance. Driving in the rain can be a hassle, especially if your vehicle isn’t prepared.
Essentially, there are a few things you can do to ease the burden of driving in the rain. Keep good quality windshield wipers installed, maintain a clean windshield, and regularly coat your windshield with Rain-X or comparable water-resistant chemicals. If applied properly, water-resistant coatings will dramatically increase visibility on rainy days. Quality windshield wipers, in good condition, are equally effective.
If your wipers don’t completely wipe away water with each pass, get them replaced. Driving in the rain is hard enough; inadequate equipment to deal with the situation only makes it that much more difficult. A clean windshield also goes a long way...rain won’t wash off the dirt that has had adequate time to adhere to your glass.
If you need new wipers, bring your truck to Autoworks and let one of our experienced technicians get you fixed up. No matter your repair or maintenance needs, our team has you covered.
The fuel system is an integral aspect of any combustion engine, but it’s particularly important on diesel trucks. Your Ford, Dodge, or Chevrolet pickup requires a perfectly functioning fuel system, devoid of buildup, leaks, and debris, to provide you with the most powerful and efficient engine performance possible. At Autoworks in Ithaca, we understand that fuel system flushing is an essential process in maintaining a properly functioning engine.
