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


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.


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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Truly honest and professional. An excellent mechanic is worth their weight in gold. Had upper and lower plenum gaskets, valve cover gaskets, half moons, and can plugs replaced.Found about a month later during an oil change that the cam plug was leaking oil, indicative that it was improperly seated. C&S stood by ttheir worked and fixed it with no hassle. That is the type of mechanic that you want. I spoke with them and for a tour of their shop and they put their money and time into doing great service. I highly recommend them.
