All vehicles will eventually need maintenance and fortunately Chevrolet vehicles can be easier to repair and maintain. Hoses, gaskets and belts become brittle and break due to the extreme temperature fluctuations your vehicle experiences. Items such as the clutch, brakes and tires experience wear and tear over time. Keeping up with these repairs can help save you time and money in the long run. Some of the most common repairs our technicians see are:
The most common warning sign of a bad or failing wheel bearing is a metal on metal grinding noise coming from the wheel area. Your steering may feel loose and a bad wheel bearing can mean your tires will wear out faster. It’s unwise to continue driving your Chevy with a bad wheel bearing. Contact Pickering’s Auto Service right away to have your bearings replaced as soon as possible.
Air Intake Manifold Gasket Leaks
A common failure point is the upper intake manifold on GM 5.3L V8 Vortec engines. You may notice coolant loss, engine misfires and a decrease in fuel economy if your intake manifold gasket is faulty. Worse, a loss of coolant leaves your engine susceptible to overheating which could leave you stranded in traffic with a badly damaged engine. Bring your Chevy in for an appointment with one of Pickerings’ ASE Certified expert technicians who can diagnose the problem and make any necessary repairs.
Power Windows & Door Locks
The power windows and doors on your Chevy are great until they quit working. If your windows are slow to roll up or down or won’t work at all, it’s likely a faulty power window regulator. If you doors aren’t locking or unlocking as they should, the power door lock actuator could be wearing out. Schedule an appointment with your Pickerings’ ASE Certified expert technician if you are experiencing these issues. They can make any needed repairs and get you back on the road.
Cooling System Leaks
If your water pump is going out, you may notice coolant leaking under your Chevy vehicle. If the pump fails completely, your engine can overheat, causing more serious damage. Other signs of a problem with your water pump are steam coming from the hood or high temperature gauge readings. Bring your Chevy to Pickering’s Auto Service for a full vehicle health inspection to identify cooling system issues early and avoid more costly repairs.
Valve Cover Gasket Leaks
Have you noticed a burning oil smell coming from your Chevrolet? It could be from a leaky valve cover gasket. These gaskets are made from plastic or cork and will eventually deteriorate, becoming cracked and brittle over time. If the engine oil becomes low, excessive heat can build inside the engine and cause serious damage. Bring your Chevy to Pickering’s Auto Service regularly for routine oil service. Our ASE certified technicians can inspect for oil leaks early on before they become bigger issues.
Is there smoke coming from your Chevy engine? This could be caused by oil leaking from the oil pan onto the exhaust manifold. Other warning signs include oil puddles underneath your car, lower than normal oil levels or an overheating engine. If you notice any of these issues, bring your Chevrolet to Pickering’s Auto Service as soon as possible before more serious damage can occur.
Rear Main Seal
A leak in your rear main seal is never good news. It’s a time-intensive repair due to the location of the rear main seal at the back of your engine. If you suspect you have a leak in your rear main seal, schedule an appointment at Pickering’s Auto Service to have one of their ASE certified mechanics inspect the leak and make any needed repairs. We’ll get you back on the road safely.
