No matter what type of car our customers are driving, Dowdy’s Automotive can keep the fuel systems running smoothly. If your engine is starting to sputter, or you’re just having trouble starting the car, let us check things out. It might be time to take a look at your fuel system.
Power Steering Repair and Maintenance
If your steering wheel is becoming harder to turn, or you’re hearing a new noise when turning, you might need to have your power steering system reviewed. The steering wheel connects to a gear that controls the movement of the car’s axles. This process uses a specific type of fluid and pump to apply pressure to that gear. This is another type of auto repair that’s closely tied to safety. You need to be able to respond quickly while on the road.
Fortunately, most power steering repair work is relatively simple to handle.
Sometimes it’s just a matter of removing the old fluid from your system. Just like an oil change for your engine, this fluid might need to get replaced with a new batch. But we may also need to install a clean pump or replace the hoses that supply the fluid.
Your technician will also check for any leaks that could be causing the steering fluid to drip. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call if your vehicle needs any power steering repair service. We’ll make sure to get it done right!
Vehicle AC Recharge
Scheduling an AC recharge or inspection is probably the best way to help stay cool in your car all summer long. Whether you’re just taking a quick drive down the road to the store or you’ve got plans for a long road trip, your air conditioning system is crucial for being comfortable—regardless of the temperature outside.
If your air conditioning hasn’t been able to keep up with combatting hot weather, just swing by the nearest Dowdy’s Automotive shop to have us run through an AC recharge. We’ll always want to consider the most cost-effective solution first. But if worse comes to worst, we can also handle full AC system repair as well. Let’s talk and figure it out. Then you’ll be all set for the season and the coming years.
Cooling System and Radiator Repairs
Your cooling system—along with the radiator—work together to regulate the temperature under the hood of your car for the engine. If your car is overheating or it looks like there’s coolant leaking, you likely have an issue with the radiator or the cooling system as a whole.
Swing by our shop and we can look at fixing things up with a quick coolant or radiator flush. And if there ends up being a radiator fluid leak, we’ll take care of that so the problem doesn’t repeat itself. These minor repairs go a long way to keep your engine running at maximum efficiency.
