Ford Repair Costs: Repairs can be costly, especially if the issue requires us to work on the transmission and engine. We help you cut costs by prioritizing repairs that need immediate attention versus ones that can wait by sourcing the best parts for the money and by providing the best technicians to work on your car. That’s what makes our prices VERY competitive.
Ford Parts: We generally use original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts ONLY if they are cost-efficient. Otherwise, we’ll source an equally durable aftermarket part. We’ll help you save money this way!
Ford repair advice needed?
Searching the Internet, combing through car guides and talking to Ford car owners with differing opinions, information and advice can be frustrating. That’s why we’ve done the work for you! Take a peek at some of the most frequently asked questions asked by Ford owners about their vehicles when it comes to repairs and maintenance.
Why does my Ford shake?
If your Check Engine light is on or flashing, then your engine is most likely misfiring and it needs attention. Many Ford engines use coil on plug type ignition and the coil boots need to be replaced with the spark plugs at regular service intervals.
Why does my Ford shift hard?
If your car or truck is an automatic it could likely be that the software for the transmission control module needs to be updated. Ford produces many different models and frequently designs newer, better transmissions. With all of these design changes come new problems that sometimes can be fixed by simply reprogramming computers to the latest calibrations.
Do I need to fix my oil leaks?
It is best to repair your leaks before they cause bigger issues, such as, damage to wire harnesses, catastrophic engine or transmission failure, or poor engine performance. Some of these repairs can be costly while others are quite simple and very affordable.
