Is your Check Engine Light On?

By News

It can be pretty disturbing when the Check Engine light comes on. We wonder just how urgent it is. Generally speaking, it is not critical like a temperature or oil pressure light. When you get one of those it means STOP NOW! When the Check Engine light shows up, you should get to David Wray Automotive  to find out what the matter is as soon as possible.

Don’t overlook these boots….

By News

A term familiar to many owners of front wheel drive vehicles is the CV joint… that’s short for constant velocity joint.  It’s the flexible joint that transfers power from the transmission to the wheels.  It’s protected by a rubber boot, which keeps grease in and dirt out.   The next time you are in for an oil change, ask to have these boots checked.

Why change your transmission fluid?

By News

Like the oil in your vehicle’s engine, under normal driving conditions, heat and oxidation cause deterioration of your ATF fluid allowing contaminants in your transmission system to increase.   Your vehicle manufacturer recommends changing the  fluid in your transmission at regular intervlas; usually every 15,000 to 50,000 miles.  

Typical Minnesota Driving Conditions that lead to accelerated transmission system deterioration include:  

  • Towing under load
  • Hot climate
  • Stop -and- go city driving
  • Winter or hard driving. 

 Add years to the life of your vehicle in just minutes!  Make an appointment today to have your transmission serviced, starting at $129.00

Our T-Tech Automatic Transmission Fluid Exchange will replace nearly 100% of your vehicle’s old, dirty fluid with new, clean fluid.  It’s a fact that a properly maintained transmission can extend the driving life of your vehicle.  Best of all, it takes just minutes.
