Not Sure What’s Wrong? Here Are Some Possible Answers

Sounds

  • High-pitched squealing when you brake – It sounds terrifying because it’s supposed to. Many brake pads come with brake pad indicators, small devices that rub against your rotor when your brake pads start to wear down too much.
  • Squealing under the hood – It could be a loose or worn down serpentine belt, which transports power to various auto components – the alternator, A/C, power steering pump, and water pump.
  • A coin rattling around in a clothes dryer – If you hear this while moving at low speed only for it to go away once you hit higher speed, it could be a loose lug nut inside your hub cap. 
  • “Rur rur ur” (grumpy cat sound) – This indicates your battery is having trouble powering your engine. Maybe it’s your battery’s time to die, maybe it’s running out of juice, maybe it just needs a jump.
  • Rumbling & roaring from the rear of your truck – Usually emitting from under the driver’s seat, this sound indicates a crack or leak in the exhaust system’s manifold (meaning all of the noise your engine makes is entering the vehicle).
  • Squeaking or groaning sounds when you turn the wheel – This indicates a problem with your power-steering system.
  • Flapping sound when you run the A/C – This is typically caused by a ventilation flap having become misaligned, worn down, or loose – hence, it starts to flap.

Smells

  • Sweet – Usually the result of antifreeze leaking from your cooling system.
  • Sulfuric (rotten eggs) – It may be that the catalytic converter has gone bad.
  • Electric (burnt toast) – This is often the result of overheating components or short circuits in the electrical system.
  • Rubber – This is most likely a problem with a belt – it could have either slipped or is getting chewed up by a pulley.
  • Musty – This is likely mold in your A/C system, which is more common in older vehicles due to the A/C evaporator collecting moisture over time.
  • Gas – Smelling gas after your engine warms up could mean you have a loose gas cap or there’s a leak or clog in the evaporative emissions control system (this system contains and recycles fuel vapors).

Finding The Right Idaho Falls Auto Repair Shop Can Be Difficult - Here’s What You Want To See In An Auto Mechanic

Professional Customer Service

Good mechanics know how to listen, even if it means reading between the lines when someone is explaining the problem to them. Many people don’t know the ins and outs of their vehicles, so good mechanics can interpret the reported symptoms and get a good idea of what the diagnosis is or know where to start to diagnose the problem.

Good Reputation

Our Idaho Falls mechanics have gained a reputation for honest and effective service.

We can not only tell you the problem but show you as well. We can also explain in detail what we can do to fix it.

If you have questions, don’t be afraid to ask!

High Quality Labor Practices

You don’t want to take your vehicle into an Idaho Falls repair shop whose mechanics use short-cuts or find the easy solution just because the right solution is more challenging.

You want auto mechanics who want what’s best for your vehicle as much as you do.

Our mechanics treat your vehicle like their own.

  • I came in back in August while on a solo road trip with some bad rotors. The team here understood the pickle I was in and squeezed me in first thing in the morning. I had figured I'd have to spend the day Lyfting around Idaho Falls but they had me in and out in no time so I could continue my journey. I couldn't believe how quickly they got me back on the road and how friendly and professional the staff here was. I hope to never have car issues in Idaho again, but if I do I can guarantee you that I will be going to C&S. Thank you guys again and I'm sorry it took me so long to get this review in. Keep up the killer work and customer service. If you're debating between a few different mechanics in the area, definitely go with C&S. You will not be disappointed!!

  • We bought a newer vehicle that only came with one fob. I got a new fob for Christmas but couldn't find a locksmith that could program it. I was referred to C & S by an audio shop. I called C & S and they said bring it over, we can program it. I brought them the vehicle and it went in immediately. Within 15 minutes, I was on my way. How much do I owe you? I asked. Nothing. Nothing. Are you kidding me? Who does that? I'd have had to take it to the dealer and pay a hundred bucks! THAT is customer service. Will I go there again? Are you kidding me? Who wouldn't? You have to try them!

  • C&S saved our bacon. Blew a spark plug while heading home from vacation. Fifty miles from home and most shops would not work on it for two to three days. Despite being obviously busy, these guys got the truck fixed and back on the road quickly and the price was very reasonable. If I lived in Idaho Falls this would definitely be my mechanic of choice!
