My cars A/C is bad the repair shop says they need to remove the dash board to replace the evaporator core is that true?

Yes on many cars and trucks that is the procedure to replace the evaporator core it seems a little labor intensive, but that’s how they have been designed. This can many times cost over $1000.00 to repair. The evaporator core is like a small radiator that gets cold and the air is directed over the core and into the passenger compartment. The picture shows the extent of the repair.

Is it important to get an alignment on my car when I have new tires installed?

Yes you just invested in an expensive set of tires, if there is an alignment issue you can set a bad wear pattern in just a few hundred miles that can cause premature tire wear resulting in much less tire mileage as well as less M.P.G. An alignment may just be the best thing you can do to make those new tires last.

My air bag light is on and now my horn won’t work, do they have anything to do with each other?

As a matter of fact yes they do. There is a part called a clock spring in the steering column that connects the air bag as well as the horn to the wiring at the bottom of the steering column. It’s really not a spring like you might be thinking but rather a coil that allows you to turn the steering wheel and keep a connection from the top to the bottom of the steering column. When that connection fails it turns on the air bag light and the horn stops working.

I have had a wheel alignment done on my car, should’t the steering wheel be straight?

Yes if your service center is doing a good job it should be straight when your going straight, on occasion if the crown in the road is excessive the wheel my be off a little. If  the wheel is off that won’t mean necessarily that the alignment is not correct. The steering wheel is just one of the adjustments and a quality job will include getting the wheel straight.

Why do I have a high pitch sound coming from my wheels?

Most likely you are hearing the brake sensors touching the rotors, letting you know the brakes are getting very thin. Not all cars have brake pad sensors but it’s a good addition on most cars. Some cars have electronic sensors, they will turn on a warning light to let you know the brakes are thin. If you see a warning light or hear that noise you should have the brakes inspected.

My car pulls to the right, do I need a wheel alignment?

You may need an alignment, but alignment is not the only thing that will cause a pull. believe it or not the tires themselves can make a car pull, usually this is an indication that there may be a problem with that tire. A brake dragging can also cause this condition, even a power steering problem can do it. The alignment may be the first thing to check but we might have to go further to correct your problem.

My brake pedal went to the floor at a red light, I pumped it and it seems o.k. What could be going on?

Most likely you have a bad brake master cylinder. Whats happening is the brake fluid is by-passing inside the master cylinder. This is a very dangerous condition and needs to be addressed immediately. In fact to be safe you should have your car towed to your service center for repair. It’s possible you could lose your brakes.

I hear a clicking noise in my car when I make a sharp turn, what could this be?

Most of the time a clicking noise on sharp turns is caused by bad drive axle C.V. joints. The c.v joint has a protective boot to keep the lube in and water and dirt out, these boots at times will tear open allowing contaminates in to damage the joint, resulting in a clicking noise in turns. By the time you hear the noise it’s to late to replace the boot and the drive axle will need to be replaced.

How can I clean my headlights? They are very cloudy.

There are many over the counter fixes for this, my experience is none of them last, they all work at first but the problem returns. We have found the solution, we remove the lights and send them to our body shop they sand them and clear coat them with the same kind of material that goes on the paint of your car, and no more problem, over the last few years we have no problems.
