What is causing those spots in my driveway? What is leaking under my car? We often have customers that come in with these concerns. There are many possibilities that can cause those ugly spots on the driveway. Some of the items range from a faulty oil filter, transmission pan gasket, an oil pan gasket, rack and pinion or steering gear, valve cover gaskets, head gasket, ... the list goes on. So, before calling up to find out how much to fix your leak, we need to degrease the area and then let the vehicle run so we can pinpoint where the leak is coming from. If you are getting those ugly spots on your garage floor, call us today to get it looked at.

To all our neighbors in the communities of Tinley Park, Orland Park, Oak Forest and to everyone in this awesome Nation, we would like to wish you a very Happy Flag Day. Did you know that the very first celebration of the United States Flag's Birthday was held in 1877 on the 100th anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777. It is believed that the first recognition of the flag's birthday dates back to 1885 when a school teacher, BJ Cigrand, first organized a group of Wisconsin school children to observe June 14th , the 108th anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes as the Flag's Birthday. A few years later the efforts of another school teacher, George Balch, led to the official observance of 'Flag Day' on June 14th . In 1916, the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 became a nationally observed event by a proclamation by President Woodrow Wilson. It was not designated as National Flag Day until August 3rd, 1949.

Why aren't my brakes working very well? Why is my brake pedal going to the floor? What is that noise when I hit my brakes? By pressing your brake pedal, your brake pads are squeezed together onto the brake rotor. This is what causes your vehicle to slow and stop. Each time this happens, very little by very little your brake rotor is worn down. Every brake rotor has a thickness specification and we measure this at each of your visits at Tinley Auto. When the thickness falls below the specification, it is recommended to replace the brake rotors. When the rotors wear to thin, what is pictured below can be the result. The brake rotor actually can wear in two and your brakes can fail completely. Before heading out of Orland Park for the family reunion or leaving Tinley Park for the summer road trip, make an appointment with us to have your brakes inspected.

Why is my car running hot? What is that sweet smell coming from my vehicle? Do I need to change my antifreeze? The coolant or antifreeze in your vehicle is designed to help cool your vehicle's engine. The coolant is moved thru the engine by the water pump and as the coolant moves thru the engine it absorbs the heat energy that the engine is producing. As the coolant moves, it passes thru the radiator where the coolant or antifreeze is then cooled. Then the cycle continues. It is recommended that the coolant in your vehicle be changed every 30,000 miles in order to protect from corrosion build up. Although the ethylene glycol, the main component in your coolant, does not expire the additional additives that are in there do. Maintaining you coolant will help keep your engine running properly and help prevent any breakdowns.

Why is my car sitting unevenly? What is that clunking noise in the front? Why do I have problems when turning? A broken coil spring can cause all these issues. Your coil spring and your shock or strut work in connection with each other to keep your vehicle stable. A broken coil spring will compromise the ride of the vehicle, the height the vehicle sits at, the way the vehicle handles turns or cornering, and the overall comfort of the ride. A broken coil spring can be a safety issue. If taking corners too fast, the vehicle can not react in the same way the driver is used to and if the broken spring comes in contact with the tire it will cause the tire to blow out. If you are having any concerns about your suspension, call us today to schedule an appointment for a complete check over.

Why is my engine making a squealing noise? Why won't my car start? What is the vibration feel in the front end? There are several possibilities to answer this question but one of those is the belt and belt tensioner. Your drive belt (sometimes referred to as a serpentine belt) loops around several pulleys to help "drive" the engine. These pulleys are connected to your alternator, starter, power steering pump, ac compressor, and water pump. If the drive belt or tensioner breaks - as what happened with this vehicle, the motorist will need to be towed in because the vehicle will lose power. Having your belt and pulley checked regularly could help save cost for a tow or more costly repairs.

How do I know when I need my brakes replaced? Before your brakes start to squeak, there are a few other early warning signs that you may notice. The need to increase your braking distance, the brake pedal feels like it goes lower to the floor than in the past and the build up of brake dust on any of the wheels are all signs that your brakes may need to be inspected. The brake dust may be on the front of the wheel as well as the back side of the wheel. If you are hearing the squeak or squeal of your brakes, then it is definitely time to have them checked. Here at Tinley Auto Repair, checking your brakes is part of every inspection that we do with any service. Call Today for an appointment or go to our website to make on. www.tinleyautorepair.com
