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 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!

  • 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!
