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.

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!
