Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc., we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 319-338-2053 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 319-338-2053 or visit Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. today.
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. today.
Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. in Coralville, IA 52241. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.
Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. in Coralville, IA 52241.
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc., we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 319-338-2053 or visit Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. today.
I was traveling from PA to CO with my son and mother. We thankfully decided to stay in Coralville for the night. We got off I-80 and my brake pedal was stiff and could barely stop. We got into the hotel around 9/10 pm on Sunday and at 8am Monday they said they could fit me in at 9 am. I took my car down and they read the check engine code and figured it out to be my vacuum pump for my brakes broke. Thankfully enough they found a part fairly quickly and fixed my car after running me to my hotel and picking me up. All was done in a timely manner all with very understanding shop guys! Highly recommend! They gave me a quote to fix my car prior to doing anything with it, with a very reasonable price!

Stopped in for an emergency repair dropping my son off to grad school. We had just finished a 19 hour drive when we had some car issues. They were amazing!! They got the car in right away and it runs better than ever! Fast, friendly, and I'm so glad we found them!! I definitely recommend Central Automotive Service & Repair!!
