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

Sounds

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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).

This indicates a problem with your power-steering system.

This is typically caused by a ventilation flap having become misaligned, worn down, or loose – hence, it starts to flap.

Smells

Usually the result of antifreeze leaking from your cooling system.

It may be that the catalytic converter has gone bad.

This is often the result of overheating components or short circuits in the electrical system.

This is most likely a problem with a belt – it could have either slipped or is getting chewed up by a pulley.

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.

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 Tricky

Here’s What You Should Look For In An Auto Mechanic

1. 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.

But, it’s not all just listening. It’s making sure we give you the honest solution to fix the problem. Even if we can’t help. C&S Auto Repair will make sure you have the right answer each and every time. 

2. Good Reputation

  • 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!

  • I gotta say C&S went above and beyond to get our truck diagnosed and fixed in record time. It broke down out of Arco, ID, and was towed to Idaho City because we needed someone who could work on high performance vehicles. Thanks, guys!

  • I've been working with these guys since 2011 and they've always treated me right. Their prices are fair, but more importantly they know what they're doing. One of the most frustrating things about getting your car repaired is dealing with shops that diagnose the problem incorrectly. Some shops just start replacing things until they find the problem!C&S has always been able to pinpoint the problem quickly and recommend the correct fix. These guys are professionals and you'll get a staff that's as knowledgeable as any dealership service department minus the dealership price. I am extremely pleased with the way they keep me on the road. I have recommended C&S to a number of friends, and my friends have had a similar experience.

  • Just picked up my car from C&S Auto. Honest, reliable, skilled and reasonable. One of the best finds I've been fortunate to make since moving to Idaho. I wouldn't go anywhere else, and wouldn't think of letting my kids go to any other shop either. I can't recommend them highly enough!Update 09/2015 - been using C&S since 2008 and still love these guys! They are the best and I wouldn't trust my automotive needs to anyone but them.

  • Ryan has the best customer service. Very professional, honest, all of their staff. Ryan was helpful in giving me instructions and advice regarding the cluster on my 2005 Chevy Suburban. I mailed it on Monday 08/17/15 and received it on 08/20/15. Installed it and works as good as new. Thank you, C&S Happy in Salida, CA

  • 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!!

  • Great customer service! Very honest, friendly, and professional!! We were having an issue with a repair they did on our timing belt, but when we took it back they misdiagnosed the problem. We then moved to a different state, but continued to have problems with it. We had to take it somewhere new to get it fixed, and they said the timing belt was off a tooth. When C&S found out about the issue, they offered to reimburse us for all their labor costs, because they weren't able to fix it themselves, since we had moved. I was very grateful and impressed! They're a great company with a lot of integrity!

  • Talk with Chris or Shana, They are genuanly concerned and want to get you the best deal. The quoted my $1,000 less than Wally's who both quoted the exact same service and parts. I gave both of them a list and C&S was WAY cheaper. Great people great deal.

No doubt, they will figure it out and will be upfront and honest. Always very thorough with repairs. Would never charge you for something that didn't need done. Highly recommend C&S for all you vehicle needs.
