Back To School Auto Repairs

back to school auto repair

The one time I regretted not getting back to school auto repairs was in my senior year of college. Although my dad checked my car every time I came home, I knew something wrong a week later. My parking brake was making a horrible sound and producing some dust. On the way to the auto maintenance, something exploded violently underneath me. My breaks were not working so I desperately threw on the parking brake. I had blown a tire and destroyed a hose. That’s when I knew I needed to take car maintenance and repair seriously.

With summer vacation coming to an end, it’s time for back-to-school auto repairs! Students are finally able to go to classes this year. However, before you get back to your university lifestyle, you need to make sure your car is ready. Although back-to-school auto repairs were not as important last year, you need to do maintenance on your car before going to school.


Does Your Engine Really Need Service?

Does Your Engine Really Need Service?

Of course, all vehicles have a check engine light that pops on when something isn’t right. The light that makes our heartthrob at the thought of having to clean out our bank accounts to fix the car. Before you start going crazy if your check engine light comes on, know that it doesn’t always mean there is a drastic problem, there could just be a sensor issue causing the light to stay on. You definitely do not want to ignore the light completely, as there may be something wrong, but here are some other signs that your engine may need work. Bring it to Mr. Muffler to determine if you need service.

Signs You Might Need Service

Loud Engine Noises 

If your engine is rattling, or making loud noises that you are unfamiliar with, be sure to get your engine checked out at Mr. Muffler’s engine repair


Have you seen something like this in your driveway after pulling out? This is a tell tale sign that you have an oil leak.

center of Westland. Loud noises coming from your engine could be a sign that something is going bad, or has already gone bad. Before bringing in your vehicle, pay attention to the noise. Be able to explain to your mechanic if it is a rattle, a thumping, clicking, or if it is something else. The more you can explain it, the quicker your mechanic can find the source of the problem. Also, pay attention to whether or not your car is riding differently. Does it overheat? Is something vibrating? Does it feel like you are going to stall when idling?

Visible Damage

Whether you are familiar with what is under your car hood or not, you may be able to spot something that just doesn’t look right. Look to see if anything looks disconnected, cracked, or completely broken. You may not know what the part is called, or why it broke, so bring it to the engine repair center at Mr. Muffler and we will pinpoint the problem, and get you back on the road as soon as possible.

Leaking Fluids 

When you pull out of your driveway in the morning, is there a wet spot on your driveway? When you left the gas station did you see some neon yellow/green fluid running from beneath your car? There are a ton of fluids that have important roles when driving your car. Seeing fluid on the ground beneath your car means that you have a leak. Common leaks are oil, transmission fluid, antifreeze, or brake fluid. If it is summertime and you are using your A/C be sure that the fluid you are seeing on the ground is not the A/C dripping. This is common as the condensation is falling. If you are unsure, or if you know that you have an important leak, bring your car or truck to our engine repair center at Westland’s Mr. Muffler.
