ENGINE MAINTENANCE, St.Petersburg, FL

Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance. It also impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Affordable Auto and Truck Repair, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 727-343-4242 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Diesel
Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:

  • Changing the oil & filter
  • Changing the air filter
  • Changing the fuel filter
  • Bleeding the fuel system
  • Draining the water separators
  • Refilling the urea injection system

You can count on the experts at Affordable Auto and Truck Repair to help your diesel engine last a long time.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 727-343-4242 or visit Affordable Auto and Truck Repair today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Affordable Auto and Truck Repair today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Affordable Auto and Truck Repair in St.Petersburg, FL 33710. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Affordable Auto and Truck Repair in St.Petersburg, FL 33710.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Affordable Auto and Truck Repair, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 727-343-4242 or visit Affordable Auto and Truck Repair today.

We were on vacation and a long way from home when the brakes started scraping and making noise. These guys checked our brakes free of charge and ensured us it was nothing to worry about, which was a big load off my mind. They could've easily taken advantage of us. Highly recommended.

Bob Ortiz and his staff have worked on 4 cars for my family. Each and every time, Affordable Auto and Truck Repair provided quality service at a reasonable price. My first experience was when my son called AAA due to a late night problem. Affordable Auto and Truck Repair arrived quickly, towed his car to their facility and secured it and repaired and returned it to him the next day. I have since taken my car for regular maintenance and new tires; my wife's car due to an electrical issue; and my daughter's car for a sensor issue. For my daughter's car, Bob recommended that we also replace her tires. He gave me a quote on a new set of tires but also informed me that for the type of tire my daughter needs, he wouldn't be able to compete with the national tire companies and suggested I shop around. At every juncture, Bob has dealt with me honestly and fairly, always kept me updated on cost and time to completion of the job, and provided quality service. By putting himself in the shoes of his customer, Bob and Affordable Auto and Truck Repair offer the highest degree of customer service. They deserve and have earned my highest recommendation.
