I have a humming noise in my car that changes with wheel speed, what could this be?

Most likely you have a wheel bearing going bad, if this is the case it will get louder and faster as you increase speed, another thing that can do this is a bad or cupped tire. Your service center will have to take a look they will be able to determine the cause.

My car’s engine light is flashing and the engine is running rough, what could this be?

Most of the time if the engine light is flashing there is an engine miss fire this could be caused by a bad spark plug, plug wire, coil, fuel injector,  as you can see there are many  causes for this condition. We will have to get a scanner on it and diagnose the problem. It takes a skilled technician to come up with the exact problem.

Do I need to replace my water pump when I’m having the timing belt replaced?

If the water pump is driven by the timing belt then yes you should replace the water pump at the same time. The engine has to come apart just as far to do the pump as the belt and for the most part the water pump won’t last as long as that new timing belt, so if the pump fails you have to pay the labor all over again.

What is a cabin air filter? My service writer says I need one.

A cabin filter, filters out contaminates that blow into the cabin of your car or truck.  You know when you let that cool air blow right in your face and you take a deep breath, well it’s the filter that cleans that air, pretty important! This is a picture of what was caught by this filter. This may not be the norm but it is an actual filter changed in our shop.

I jump started my car now my battery light is on, what happened?

Many times we find that someone has put the jumper cables on backwards, even if it’s just for an instant.  If this happens you will have blown the main fuse, which is a problem but it would be a much larger problem if there were no fuse to protect all the components in your car. Your service center will have to replace this for you, it is normally bolted into the system so it’s not just a quick replacement.
