Check Engine Light

When your vehicle’s check engine light appears on the dashboard, it’s time for some car maintenance. Inspecting your vehicle sooner can help you to avoid costly repair problem down the road. The service engine light is connected to the electronic control module (ECM) of the vehicle, which essentially acts as the brain of the vehicle.

Many sensors are installed throughout the vehicle and feedback information to the ECM. If the ECM recognizes a specific part of the vehicle is not up to factory standards, it will turn the check engine light on to seek professional help. It is strongly recommended not to ignore the check engine light until your vehicle starts exhibiting performance problems, such as poor gas mileage, stalling, surging, stumbling, breaking down, and/or failing smog test.

If your check engine light is on, bring your car to Beltline Auto today to receive our accurate and state-of-the-art diagnostics. Our ASE certified technicians will provide quality check engine light services at a reasonable price and pin point the problems and handle them before they become costly.

If your check engine light is on, just stop by our facility at your earliest convenience. We gladly accept walk-ins, especially with unexpected check engine light problems.

Suspension

Your vehicle suspension system is an intricate network of parts designed to give you a smooth, stable ride. Since the suspension is where most road abuse occurs, the parts can wear out easily and sometimes break. If your vehicle doesn’t seem to ride like it used to, a suspension problem may be the issue.

An adequate suspension enables your vehicle to absorb shock, maintain contact with the road surface, and handle corners well, leading to better control of your vehicle and a comfortable ride with less road noise, bumps, and vibrations.

Your vehicle’s suspension is a system of springs, shock absorbers, and linkages that connect your vehicle to its wheels and support its weight. It is important they are inspected at least once a year and looked over for any damage and excessive wear and tear by professionals.

Tires are where the rubber meets the road, literally. Your vehicle’s tires must be in good condition for the suspension to work properly. Under-inflated, worn out, or otherwise faulty tires make it tough for the suspension to do its job.

Diagnosing Signs of Suspension Problems

  • The vehicle is pulling to one side
  • You notice excessive bouncing or swaying, even at low speeds
  • The steering is erratic
  • Your vehicle leans excessively in curves
  • You notice uneven tire wear
  • The vehicle bounces more than once when you press downward on one corner of the vehicle

Our Beltline Auto technicians will be happy to perform a detailed diagnostic check to determine the exact cause of your suspension problem and repair it before additional damage occurs.

Belts & Hoses

Among all the components in your vehicle, belts and hoses have the shortest lifespan. These components often crack, leak, or fray due to their constant exposure to heat, vibration, and other harmful chemicals. If not promptly replaced and maintained, it could spell disaster for your vehicle’s performance. Belt and hose evaluations based solely on their appearance are not enough. While routine maintenance of belts and hoses is always important, summertime is an especially important season to keep an eye under the hood due to increased temperatures, which will accelerate deterioration of the rubber components.

Since belts and hoses can be difficult to inspect visually, be sure to follow your manufacturer’s recommendations for scheduled maintenance. Beltline Auto offers complete automotive belt and hose repair services at our auto repair shop in Irving, Texas. Our team of certified technicians understand that the bolts and hoses in your vehicle play vital roles in functional operations inside your vehicle. Failure to adhere to the manufacturer recommended replacement schedule can result in your vehicle breaking down and leaving you stranded.

Cooling System

Riding in your car should be comfortable, no matter the season. Beltline Auto is the leading auto repair specialist in Irving, TX for the service, repair, and replacement of automotive cooling system components. The certified technicians at Beltline Auto knows how important a role the cooling system in your vehicle plays in your engine’s longevity and your vehicle’s overall dependability.

As automotive technology has advanced over the years, the cooling system has progressed with new coolant formulations and more efficient radiator designs and materials. The primary function of the cooling system in your vehicle is to remove the heat from the engine and dissipate it to the outside air. This happens when the water pump circulates coolant throughout the engine system where it absorbs the heat before being returned to the radiator. When the heated coolant returns to the radiator the heat is dissipated into the air. A thermostat is used to regulate the temperature of the coolant to make sure it is consistent for maximum engine operation efficiency.

Be sure to have your vehicle checked regularly to identify and resolve cooling system issues before they become more serious and costly problems.

Coolant Issue Warnings:

  • Temperature light turn on
  • Temperature gauge readout is out of the normal range
  • Heater does not produce heat

Beltline Auto offers a complete range of repair services for your auto cooling system needs on both foreign and domestic vehicles. The mechanics at Beltline Auto are both certified and trained to quickly diagnose your vehicle’s cooling system problem and repair it at an affordable and reasonable cost, getting you back on the roads as soon as possible.

Exhaust

The exhaust system should be inspected regularly and repaired immediately for your safety if you notice any problems. The purpose of exhaust system is to protect a vehicle’s occupants from harmful engine gases by redirecting them away from the car to the outside air. The exhaust system also helps to ensure a quiet and peaceful driving experience by minimizing engine exhaust noises. The catalytic converter is an exhaust system component that minimizes the amount of dangerous pollutants found in the engine exhaust.

Other components of the exhaust system include oxygen sensors, which monitor oxygen levels in the exhaust gases for ensuring the overall efficiency of the catalytic converter and engine’s operation. Beltline Auto offers complete automotive exhaust repair and service. Our certified and highly experienced mechanics provide quality complete exhaust system repair and replacement services for all foreign and domestic cars and trucks.

Transmission

Your transmission is one of the most delicate and complex components within your vehicle. Beltline Auto strongly recommends you to take care of transmission problems early because this helps you save money and reduce your vehicle’s downtime.

Our ASE technicians can handle everything from a basic transmission fluid change or clutch replacement, to a complete rebuild of your transmission. Beltline Auto will evaluate your transmission quickly and accurately to help determine if a major or minor service is necessary. Two types of transmissions include manual and automatic.

Common Transmission Repair Warnings

  • Leaking Fluid: Red fluid is typically transmission fluid and may indicate that you have a leak. Since transmission fluid cools and lubricates parts as they move, low fluid can cause the transmission to overheat and/or cause parts to wear down.
  • Check Engine Light: If your check engine light is on, this tells you that your vehicle’s internal computer detects a problem in an operating system. It may be the transmission, engine, exhaust, etc. Beltline Auto will use the proper diagnostic equipment to assess and diagnose the issue.
  • Feeling Something Wrong: If you feel grinding and shaking as you increase or decrease speed or shift gears, this can be a symptom of a serious transmission
  • Makes Odd Sounds: A transmission in good condition will not make noises. If you hear whining or humming, it indicates a problem. Automatic and manual transmissions react differently when having problems; so it is important to let trained technicians help determine the source of the odd noise. Noises may only happen sporadically at first, yet will occur more frequently over time.
  • Won’t Go into Gear: It is an issue if an automatic transmission hesitates or has trouble engaging in or out of any gear instead of shifting quickly into gear.
