Excellent Tips For Finding Traction Control System Repair

Traction Control System Repair

Fullerton Traction Control System Repair

So many Fullerton car owners are often confused with all the new dashboard alerts on newer vehicles. One in particular is the TCS alert light. TCS stands for traction control system, this is a feature that is on all current vehicles and helps to prevent the drive wheels from losing traction on slick or slippery roads.

Here’s some info on what the Traction Control System (TCS) does.

Traction control systems use your wheel-speed sensors on the antilock brake system to feel when one or more of the drive wheels are slipping and or loosing traction. While all vehicles vary depending on your make and model, it will then reduce power to the drive wheels and/or apply the brakes to try to restore valuable traction. When the TCS engages, a dashboard light may illuminate to alert you of the action.

Additionally, TCS works like as a driver who would ease their foot off the accelerator when a drive wheel starts to slip, as if they were to accelerate too quickly on a slippery surface. Although. TCS can detect a wheel slip sooner, react faster and, on some vehicles, reduce the power to individual drive wheels.

Not All TCS systems are the same, some traction control systems intervene too quickly or may shut off too much power to the drive wheels, and the result is that you may have a vehicle stuck in on ice or snow and going nowhere. In some situations, it may be better to turn off the traction control systems and get moving by rocking the vehicle back and forth or flooring the accelerator and powering through.

Though some early versions of TCS began to appear in the 1970s, it wasn’t until the late 1980s that TCS became more widely available, initially on high-end vehicles such as Mercedes and BMW. Now, all modern vehicles now have TCS, but it has become less visible in the last decade due to the fact it ‘s incorporated into the electronic stability control system (SCS).

All You Need To Know About Exhaust System Repair

Exhaust Pipe Repair

 

We’ve all had that moment when you’re peacefully driving through Fullerton enjoying the radio and all of suddenly a vehicle with an exploding exhaust drives by, sometime with a noise so load you panic and swerve as the vehicle screams by. Even worse is when you discover your vehicle is making that sound! Don’t panic, Orozco’s Auto Service can muffle that noise.

While everyone knows your muffler keeps your engine running quietly, but it’s also a key factor for your vehicles complete exhaust system. There are three main functions your exhaust system provides you vehicle.

While many people know one of the primary functions for your muffle is to reduce the engines exhaust noise. Additionally, it safely moves hot exhaust gases from the engine out the tailpipe through a network of pipes beginning with the exhaust manifold. Finally, the exhaust system treats the exhaust to remove harmful pollutants with the assistance of the catalytic converter.

Lets address that poisonous exhaust (carbon monoxide) extruding from your engine. You don’t want that getting into your passenger compartment, carbon monoxide can be deadly. That’s why you should never run your engine in a closed area/garage. If you have a leak someplace in the exhaust system, it could get into the passenger cabin and make you ill or if ignored, kill you and or your passenger(s). Exhaust gas contains a number of pollutants and dirty particulates. Luckily all exhaust systems these days have a catalytic converter that scrubs some of those harmful substances. And diesel vehicles have systems to deal with soot. Catalytic converters will eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Unfortunately, they are expensive so you want to help them last as long as possible by keeping your fuel system clean and replacing your air filter regularly. These components need to be tested for function with an emission tests from time to time.

If you think you smell exhaust in your vehicle, immediately roll down the windows and drive to Orozco’s Auto Service or any qualified mechanic to get your vehicle inspected. Sometimes you can smell or see exhaust coming from the engine compartment or under the vehicle if you have a leak. Sometimes it sounds like a ticking sound after you start the engine that will go away as you drive. That may mean there’s a small crack or bad fitting / seal that leaks when the engine is cold but closes up when the metal heat up making it expands. It can also generate sound from an exhaust leak that is loud and obvious as stated above.

If you believe your vehicle’s exhaust system needs service or are not sure and would like to have your vehicle inspected, call Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton today at (714) 525-3239. Keep your vehicle in good condition and ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and those around you!

Helpful Ideas For Auto Maintenance For Your Vehicle

Oil and Filter Service

 

Here in Fullerton we see plenty of older vehicles on the road. Some are better looking than others but the good news it they are still on the road. Some are used to commute, driving around kids, picking up groceries or even working vehicle. Most of these driver enjoy that fact that they’re paid off, or soon will be. They would gladly like to keep their vehicles for 200,000 miles or more as long as it isn’t in the shop too much.

There are plenty of people whose vehicles are running after 100,000 or 200,000 miles. What do all these vehicles have in common and what what can we learn from them that’s keeping them on the road so long.

A common denominator is that they never skip regular maintenance. That may sound a bit unsophisticated, but it’s really not. Most importantly, oil is the life blood of your engine and it needs to be clean to properly lubricate. Skipping oil changes leads to clogged oil filters and sludge that can damage your engine.

There’s another reason why the scheduling an oil change is so important. It’s simple, an Orozco’s Auto Service ASE certified mechanic is going to be inspecting your your vehicle. All of your fluid levels will be inspected and topped off so they won’t get so low that damage can be done. If there is a significant fluid loss, let’s use brake fluid as an example, your technician can look for the cause of the loss and find the problem before it leads to an accident or costly repair.

The service technician will also visually inspect the vehicle for worn belts and hoses, uneven tire wear, leaking shock absorbers and more. Problems get addressed before they lead to repairs that cost more than the car’s worth. And your service advisor will be able to remind you of other services that the factory recommends you get done.

Of course, good maintenance costs money, but it’s far cheaper than buying a new. Additionally, regular maintenance will help you maintain the best millage your vehicle can offer.

At Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton we thoroughly inspect your vehicle with every service as a courtesy to you and your car. By doing this, we can give you the most thorough, comprehensive feedback on the overall health of your vehicle so that you are able to make the best-informed decisions about your vehicle’s care and maintenance.

Great Advise For An Emergency Roadside Kit

Emergency Roadside Kit

Orozco’s Auto Service would like to remind all drivers to keep an Emergency Roadside Kit in your vehicle. Nobody knows when an accident or at minimum a blocked road that may leave you stranded for hours. If you find yourself on one of those scenarios, having an Emergency Roadside Kit with the right components can make the difference in keeping you and your passengers safe until help arrives. Depending on the issue, proper tools can go a long ways in making a bad situation more tolerable.

While most of these items are available in most trunks, not all roadside Emergency Roadside Kits are the same. While there are many kits available in stores or online, you can always prepare your own for the type and condition of your vehicle, as well as the typical weather where you live or travel. As most drivers in Southern California know you can be skiing in the afternoon and having dinner in the desert all in the same day. Meaning, it’s best to prepare for both hot and cold scenarios.

Here are some of the essentials for your Emergency Roadside Kit:

Flares & Lighting
One of the most important safety items for your kit are flares or reflective triangles, these will warn other drivers of the roadside hazard. In case of a breakdown they should be spaced out evenly along the roadside behind your vehicle. For a longer-lasting option, invest in battery-operated LED flares.

Jumper Cables
These are another essential for every vehicle. Batteries can die or lose their charge at the least opportune moment; jumper cables, with a jump-start from another vehicle, can at least get you to the next service station. You should also consider carrying a separate battery pack for starting your car if no one is around.

First Aid Kit
A first-aid kit is an must have item and is indispensable for addressing smaller, everyday injuries and more serious wounds in the case of an accident. You can purchase them pre-packed with all the essentials or assemble one customized to your needs.

Car Fluids & Tools
Flat tires are one of the most common roadside problems, but it’s not always possible to change a tire. Including a can of tire inflator and sealant in your kit, if it’s a small leak you’ll have a better chance at making it to a service station and at minimum a safer place to pull over. here are a few additional recommendations: motor oil, coolant, extra windshield wiper blades, and a toolkit with screwdrivers, pliers, and an adjustable wrench.

Car Accessories for Winter / Mountains

An ice scraper, a spray bottle with washer fluid, snow chain, blankets, a sleeping bag or a heat-retaining emergency survival blanket, bottled water and long-lasting food items such as energy bars can be rotated out over time.

Car Accessories for Summer / Desert

Bottled water and long-lasting food items such as energy bars can be rotated out over time. Hat with a wide brim, Sunglasses, sturdy knife / multitool, several large leaf bags or solar blankets for instant body shelter from the sun, a small mirror or a signal mirror, matches, butane lighter or flint and steel, a police-type whistle, flashlight and batteries, duct tape.

Lastly, if you are planning a road trip it’s always a good idea to visit Orozco’s Auto Service for a pre-trip inspection or call Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton today at 714-525-3239. Always keep your vehicle in good condition and ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and those around you!

Learn A little About Auto Suspension Repair

Auto Suspension repair

 

Not a lot of people give much though about their vehicle’s suspension while it’s working. When all of a sudden you may notice uneven wear on your tires or start to feel excessive play with your steering wheel. Or all of a sudden you hit a pothole on one of our local Fullerton roads  that damages your suspension. These are some of the signs that you may have suspension problems. Another possible sign to look for is if the front of your vehicle slumps when braking or bottoms out when accelerating.

Again with so much of your suspension packed under your vehicle many people ask “what is the suspension?”. Well simply put, t’s part of your vehicles chassis, which includes the frame, the steering system and the wheels. Your suspension system supports your the vehicle’s weight, helps reduce the effect of impacts from the road and maintains proper wheel alignment. It’s critical for accurate steering, stopping and stability. Every time you hit a pothole, a bump, or object in the road, your suspension absorbs the impact and maintains control.

In most modern vehicles the suspension systems are made up of several parts such as: shocks, springs absorbers, air springs, struts, torsion bars, leaf springs, pull rods, etc.  that connect to your vehicle wheels one way or another.

As you can imagine, with all those parts your suspension has a lot of joints and pivot points that allow your wheels to move up and down over bumps, and to turn as you steer. With all the work your vehicle does over time these joints wear out. Once a joint is worn out, the suspension parts don’t fit together as well as they should. Handling and steering can feel loose, and you may hear some disconcerting noises. Eventually your tires will begin to wear unevenly because they are bouncing on the road. A loose joint has the effect of stressing other suspension components causing a chain reaction so other components wear out faster than they should.

Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton recommends getting proper maintenance according to your vehicles manufacturer’s recommendations. This means having your suspension inspected regularly with certified ASE mechanics and repairing or replacing parts when ever necessary.

By addressing a small problem before it becomes a major repair later can help avoid additional costs. Also, by having parts replaced or checked and ensuring they follows the manufacturer’s specifications. Manufacturer’s also recommend replacing your shock absorbers at pre-estimated intervals.

If your vehicle has any of the above signs or you feel your vehicle’s suspension needs service or are not sure and would like to have it diagnosed, call Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove today at 714-525-3239. Always keep your vehicle in good condition to ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and those around you!

Simple Pointers For Automotive Air Conditioner Repair

Auto Air Conditioning Repair

 

Fullerton Automotive Air Conditioner Repair

Are you looking for local Automotive Air Conditioner Repair? Then Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton is your destination. Your vehicle’s air conditioning system / climate control is responsible for keeping you comfortable throughout the year. It keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. So you might think that it only needs to be repaired to restore the cold cabin temperatures that keep you comfortable in Fullerton’s hot summers. Drivers need to know that a malfunctioning climate control system could be causing harm to some of your vehicle’s other major systems year round.  Some Auto Air Conditioning problems can result in leaks that bleed corrosive fluid onto other components within your engine compartment. If neglected you may end up needing more than just Automotive Air Conditioning Repair.

Here are some additional issues that can be a sign you need A/C service:

Foul odor coming from your A/C system. Unpleasant odors coming from your car’s vents are usually caused by a dirty, old air cabin filter or a moldy evaporator case. We can clean your A/C lines, evaporator and ventilation system. Then add a biocide used to kill all bacteria, mold and fungi. The ventilation system and interior are deodorized. The air inside your vehicle will be much healthier, smell great and the A/C will run 4 to 5 degrees cooler due to increased efficiency.

Weak airflow. One of the main causes for weak airflow can be mold or mildew accumulating in the evaporator core from moisture or condensation from regular operation, a hose coming loose and decreasing air pressure, ventilation fan failure, or seals coming loose and diminishing airflow.

A/C system isn’t as cold as it used to be. A/C losing its frigidity can be caused by a number of reasons, including a Freon leak caused by a loose seal, gasket, hose, or component, a clogged hose or tube, a failed compressor or component, a failed blower motor, a damaged or failed condenser or evaporator, vacuum leaks, or a failed switch, relay, fuse, or solenoid. A leak in the A/C system can end up compromising the entire system. If you or your mechanic discovers the leak early, then it most likely will not have damaged as many parts, and your repair will not be as expensive.

A/C system starts out cold but gets warm. There are several possible causes for this problem: a faulty compressor clutch, a clogged expansion valve, a bad fuse or wire, or leaks may all cause this symptom.

Auto 101: Radiator Repair And The Cooling System

Radiator Repair

 

Fullerton Radiator Repair

Have your ever noticed that when you watch a movie with a car chase the car being chased usually overheats and suddenly there’s a bunch of steam coming from under the hood. This usually means that the vehicle has a damaged radiator due to being shot or pushing the vehicle past it’s limits. As we know, it’s just a movie. But the reality is radiators can be a fragile component of your engines cooling system and if not properly monitored and maintained it can fail.

The radiator is one of the elements of your vehicle’s cooling system, and if there’s a problem with it, the extremely high temperatures of your engine running will cause the vehicle to overheat and likely and if ignored for even a short time will fail. Moreover, your radiator prevents overheating by cooling the fluid that flows throughout your engine to dissipates your engine’s heat. If you see steam coming from the radiator, it is an indicator just like in the movies that your radiator has not been able to do it’s job and it can quickly lead to additional costly repairs if you continue driving.

Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton provides quality radiator repair and service. We can fix many types of leaks, radiator hoses, even replace with a new radiator from our 1,000’s of in-stock radiators. Sometimes if you notice water or antifreeze leaking under the vehicle this may mean there is a leak in either the radiator, the water pump, the thermostat, or one of the hoses.

Replacing and repairing the hoses or thermostat is usually a fairly simple process and shouldn’t be too expensive. Repairing a radiator or water pump can be a bit more tricky depending on their location. Water pumps usually need to be replaced opposed to repaired. Radiators can be either repaired or replaced depending on the damage and area of the damage. There are sometimes instances where the radiator can be repaired, but the technician knows the repair will not last due to the circumstances at hand.

Our ASE certified technicians have been repairing radiators for years. We have seen just about everything when it comes to radiator repair. We work on all makes and models and hope you will stop by and give us the opportunity to earn your business.

Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton offers many services and repairs for your vehicle by our ASE certified mechanics. We will get the job done right at an affordable and competitive price.

Your Car Will Appreciate Automotive Electric Seat Repair

Automotive Electric Seat Repair

 

 

Fullerton Automotive Electric Seat Repair

Automotive Electric Seat Repair – When you’re cruising through Fullerton in you vehicle, you want to be comfortable – and in today’s high tech vehicles that comfort comes in the shape of a luxurious power seat.  Nowadays many vehicles are equipped with elaborate power seats that go beyond keeping your feet on the peddles. They automatically move in a variety of directions satisfying drivers every ergonomics need. When you press the power seat controls the power seat triggers motors which then moves your seat forward, backward adjust lumbar support, heated seats just to name a few of the many comfort options. Also allowing you to find the optimal placement for your seat, so that the gas and brake pedals are the right distance for your feet, and so that you are comfortable.

Unfortunately, with all those electronic options, power seats and their controls are more likely to fail than the older manual mechanical lever controlled seats. When the power seat switch fails, the seats can’t move when you press the button, and you won’t be able to control the placement of your seat. While this may not be a serious problem – you may not be able to see well or operate your vehicle if the seat is stuck in a position too far away from your peddles rendering your vehicle undrivable. Power seat switches are usually located on the seat itself or door panel. Those switches send power to the seat motors, allowing you to move your seat in several directions. If the switch malfunctions, then the seat may no longer move, or its movement may be limited. Also,  it’s common for debris to get stuck in the tracks, preventing the seat from moving. However, if cleaning the debris doesn’t resolve the problem, your seat or switches may need to be repaired or replaced. If the switches are working and there is no debris, but your seat still does not move, you may have a malfunctioning power seat motor or a short in one of the wires going to the switch or motor. Something that only an ASE certified technician can handle, just like the technicians employed at Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton!

Most of the time in order to repair power seats, the seat must first be removed, then the motors, switches, & wiring will be inspected. Once the source of the problem is found, it must be repaired or replaced, then everything must be reassembled & thoroughly tested.

If your vehicle’s power seat is malfunctioning or moving unusually slowly, or If you have questions regarding Power Seat Repair contact Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton today at 714-525-3239. Keep your vehicle in good condition and ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and those around you!

Can An Auto Repair Shop Perform Hybrid Repair? YES!

Hybrid Repair

 

Fullerton Hybrid Repair

These days everyone is interested in hybrid vehicles.  With all that interest we often get asked if they get a hybrid vehicle do they still need maintenance. And if so where can I get it done. Sorry to say but yes all vehicles electric and hybrid still need to be maintained. Not only do you want your new electric baby to last longer you also will want to ensure it will always be safe to drive. These are critical tasks that should always be addressed on any vehicle. Some of the more common services can be brakes, suspension, tires along with all those fancy bells and whistles on todays new vehicles. Not to mention the hybrids stall have complete combustion engine. And to the second question, Absolutely Yes, our Certified ASE technicians are qualified to work on all types of vehicles. Additionally, our technicians are required to maintain continued education for anything new that comes along as part of their certification.

While all vehicles do need maintenance you be happy to know hybrids don’t require any type of special maintenance. Additionally, the hybrid system can reduce normal wear and tear on some conventional parts of the vehicle. When the electric motor takes over, the gas engine shuts down. Resulting in having far fewer miles than the reading on the odometer. Some manufacturer even suggest going long between oil changes. We always recommend following your auto’s manual for factory recommendations for any service.

Brakes are a component that always needs to be maintained on hybrids but at longer intervals. Hybrid vehicles use regenerative braking that re-directs the friction involved in stopping the to replenish the battery. That energy would otherwise be heat on your brakes and pads. So brake jobs will be fewer and farther between in a hybrid. You aren’t completely off the hook though, as you will still need windshield wipers, tires, light bulbs, and cabin air filters. Not to mention the additional battery weight can sped of the wear on your tires.

Hybrid-specific parts are covered by a warranty of at least eight years and 100,000 miles. Some states, including California, have mandated hybrid warranties of ten years and 150,000 miles, which includes the battery pack. As more hybrids have taken to the road, these packs have become less expensive. And there are stories of many hybrids still on the road with their original battery packs at 200,000 miles or more.

With no gasoline engine at all, electric cars eliminate oil and filter changes, tune-ups, exhaust system maintenance, emissions tests, timing belt replacements and engine repairs. Yes, there is an electric motor, but that motor has few moving parts and requires little in the way of maintenance. And, like the hybrids we mentioned above, electrics use regenerative braking, which converts the friction into energy to replenish the battery instead of letting it become heat on your brakes and brake pads. Similar to the hybrid cars, electrics will require fewer, less frequent brake jobs.

If you’re considering getting a hybrid one thing to factor in is the cost difference low enough to be offset by the savings in gasoline and maintenance? For electrics, you need to consider range. Can the car get you through a typical day without needing a recharge? Is there a charging station at work? Are you willing to pay to have one installed at home? And lastly there’s always that great feeling you’ll have knowing you are doing your part to help save our planet.

Regardless of your decision Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton will always be here to help maintain, service or repair any vehicle. If you would like more information about hybrid or electric vehicles feel free to call Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton today at 714-525-3239. Keep your vehicle in good condition and ensure the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and those around you!
