Major Systems and Components
“Very friendly and attentive to my questions. Service was completed timely and cost effective. I enjoy working with Garry’s Service Center.”
Engine – Rough idling or poor performance may indicate a need for minor repairs only. Abnormal noises or smoke could be a sign of worn or damaged engine parts. Active fluid leaks or broken motor mounts, left un-repaired, can lead to further, more costly future repairs. Minor oil leaks are common on older vehicles, but any leak should be inspected and diagnosed.
Transmission – Transmissions or clutches that are slow to engage or shift very harshly generally indicate worn parts that may require repair or replacement. Fluid leaks may lead to premature transmission failure; broken transmission mounts can damage other components including drive shafts and exhaust systems.
Steering System – Loose or binding steering indicates worn parts that can cause poor alignment and premature tire wear. Cracked or broken grease boots can cause premature part failure.
Starting System – Slow cranking, hard starting or noisy starter operation can indicate a potential no-start condition that may leave you stranded down the road.
Interior/Exterior Lighting – Adequate lighting is a safety concern both outside and inside the vehicle. Inoperative turn signals or stop lamps are potential traffic hazards. Multiple burned-out bulbs may indicate an underlying electrical problem.
