AUTO REPAIR & MAINTENANCE BLOG

Maintaining your vehicle at home is a satisfying way to keep your motoring costs down. With the right knowledge and products even someone who isn't very mechanically inclined can take care of many of the smaller issues in everyday driving. Sometimes, however, car issues can be too specialized or complex for the average motorist to take care of by themselves and it becomes time to take your car to the pros. Below you'll find three major warning signs that you need to get to a mechanic ASAP, as well as some of the potential causes behind them.



Engine and Drivetrain Problems

Let's start at the beginning. If your car won't even turn over and start up, then the rest of the problems on this list won't come into play. The simplest cause of this issue is a dead battery, which you can remedy with jumper cables, and the instructions that come printed on their packaging. If jumping the car doesn't work, you may have a larger problem with your ignition system. It's advisable to take your car into the shop at this point because finding the root of the problem will likely involve removing a few parts from your engine. Whether it's dead spark plugs or electrical problems, it's better to have it dealt with by a professional. Likewise, engine surging where the revs rise and fall can mean a problem with your fuel injectors, which are fairly deep within your motor. It's unwise to drive around with a surging engine, as this burns more gas and can cause unintended acceleration. Drivetrain issues are another major issue requiring professional attention. Everybody fears the dreaded transmission repairs, so if certain gears won't engage or they shift at the wrong times you should definitely take your car to the qualified mechanics here at Beiler's Auto Repair Inc..



Vibration While Driving

This issue can be caused by damaged drivetrain components, but can also stem from misaligned wheels or unbalanced or flat tires. If you feel any vibration or shuddering as you drive along, you should get to a mechanic as soon as you can. At its worst, this issue can lessen your control over the car, potentially causing accidents. This will also wear out your tires more quickly than if everything was straight and true. Unwanted vibrations put stress on important (and costly) components like suspension and brakes while decreasing gas mileage, so it's smart to take your car in as soon as these issues develop.



Poor Braking Performance

Your brakes are vital to keeping you safe on the road and should definitely be cared for by a professional, unless you're absolutely sure you know what you're doing. Common signs of issues with your car's braking system include squeaking or squealing when the brakes are applied, or the brakes feeling spongy and failing to slow your vehicle properly. Squealing brakes are caused by the brake pads wearing through the pad surface to the metal underneath. At this point the metal behind your brake pad is coming into contact with the brake rotor. This can be disastrous and produce unwanted heat, reduced stopping power, and cause you to have to buy new rotors as well as the relatively cheap pads. Spongey and weak brakes can mean there's a problem with your master cylinder, which converts the mechanical pressure of you pressing the pedal into hydraulic pressure to apply the brakes. In either case, it's best to have your brakes seen to by the professional mechanics here at Beiler's Auto Repair Inc..



There are instances where car maintenance is simple and easy, but if you notice any of these issues developing, it's best to take your car in for a qualified mechanic's checkup so the problems can be remedied before they turn into much more serious issues. Beiler's Auto Repair Inc. has the tools and expertise to have you safely back on the road in no time at all.



What People Say About Us


  • -Nece

    Beiler's Auto Repair has an exceptional family feel to it. When you first walk in, the lobby has comfortable couches, complimentary coffee and small treats. The owner is more than accommodating and offers a ride and comes out to look over your vehicle and does what he can without asking for a penny unless need be. I thought the patch they put in my tire didn't hold when I got a flat so they said they'd replace my tire with no labor cost. They ended up discovering that the patch was in good shape yet they still didn't charge me. I can honestly say, these guys are the real deal and would never steer you wrong.


  • -Emma G.

    We are grateful to have found this quality shop with honest and fast mechanics!


  • -Georgia G.

    If you are looking for a place to take your vehicles where the staff are honest, will work with you to get the job done in a timely fashion, give you a loaner car if you are in need of one, and you will receive smiles instead of complaints then you will want to go here! They have been keeping our cars running safely for over 20 years now as we pass our older cars on to our driving teenagers YIKES!! Danny & John Beiler are AWESOME and they employee a great group of people!!

    Beiler's has taken care of my families cars and has for years. My wife's car had a hesitation problem . It turned out to be a transmission issue. Beiler's took the car to a transmission shop, got me a fair quote and the problem was repaired promptly. They even gave me a loaner car while the transmission shop took care of it. And it was comforting to have a reference to a transmission shop I could trust. The problem also was only a transmission repair rather than replacement . So it was not expensive. I highly recommend Beiler's. Tom

    The ads refer to values, like honesty and caring. This business lives up to the ads, and demonstrates those values by superior service. Although my repair was a minor one, it was completed professionally and at a reasonable price. And I was treated like a valued customer, so that I would happily return for future repairs. The waiting room decor is awesome ... authentic booths and accessories from a 50's diner. It lends a sense of fun to the experience of having your car fixed. Highly recommend!

    My experience with Beiler’s has always been great. In fact, one time my shifting mechanism got caught in reverse while I was sitting in the ATM line. Luckily nobody was behind me because all I could do was go backwards. So I drove backwards out of the ATM line and called Beiler’s. Without hesitation, Danny arrived, did something under my car,gave me his keys and said to follow him back to the shop while he drove my car. Talk about exceptional service!!!!! I will always take my vehicles to Beiler’s because they always fix the issue, and they always treat us kindly!


  • -P G.

    Had my wheel bearing replaced, synthetic oil change and nail in tire fixed. Devin was prompt on updating status. They had a loaner car to borrow which was nice. There could have been a mistake replacing a sensor but they found the true cause and saved me from spending money on a sensor that wasn't needed. They also repaired the nail in my tire for free which was a nice gesture as this was my first time using this shop. I'm new to Sarasota so this will be my go to repair shop for the foreseeable future. Thanks to everyone at Beiler's that worked on my car.


  • -JC M.
