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 Tricky

Here’s What You Should Look For 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!

The Right Credentials

Our mechanics are certified and have plenty of years of experience in the auto repair industry. Combined certifications include:

  • A/C Repair
  • Brakes
  • Engine Repair
  • Engine Performance
  • General Automotive Parts
  • GM Parts
  • Electrical Repair & Electrical Diagnosis

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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Very impressed by these guys and gal,. Prompt service and kept me informed of everything along the way. I usually do all of my own work and am weary about trusting mechanics. But I am quite pleased with their service and the extra effort they put forward to keep the customer happy and informed. They will have my business again in the future should I need their help again. Thanks again guys!

  • I am not sure if they remember me or my situation but, I still tear up to this day on how amazing this company is and what they did for me. They are honest, kind, and went above and beyond to help me. I back in 2007-2008 as a very, very poor single mom, bought a car that ended up being a lemon. I had to buy a new transmission. Wanting to go the cheeper route, I ordered a refurbished transmission online. Shipping was about $600+, Plus the transmission. I had the transmission delivered to C&S auto for them to install. Long story short the transmission delivered didn’t work. So we needed to send it back. It was not easy dealing with the online company I ordered the transmission from. I had to pay for another shipment to ship a new transmission again they sent us another and same thing it didn’t work. C & S auto we’re so great and through all my tears did whatever the could for me. Finally after them helping me fight this company we got another transmission sent and it worked this time. They were my angels. They allowed me to make payments and were just so kind. I will never forget what they did for me. I can now say I am in a much different financial situation and have given back to my community as much as possible. I will be forever grateful for their kindness and helping me years ago. Thank you C & S auto!

  • My family has gone to CNS for years. They are honest and fair. Even though I've moved out of state, I try and wait to get my car repaired tell I come down to Idaho Falls to visit so I can have CNS fit it. I am down visiting now, and before I left I was told by a tire place that I needed new breaks and tires. They wanted a fortune to do it so I waited until I came to Idaho Falls to have my breaks replaced and, once again, CNS did not fail to impress me with their honesty and awesomely fair prices. Next time you have car problems go to CNS and see for yourself how amazing they are, you won't regret it and you'll never go any where else once you try them. Thanks CNS for being so great!
