The New Orleans auto repair professionals at Twin Tire will help you if your transmission needs to be repaired or rebuilt.
It's the beginning of what, for some, is a four-day weekend. You're planning a full set of activities, including the Happy 3rd of July concert at City Park. That is, you plan to go if your car will cooperate. The dreaded check engine light is on and you're wondering if you should take your car to the New Orleans auto repair gurus at Twin Tire Auto Care or if it could wait until after the holiday.
Before you decide, check your gas cap. If it's loose or cracked, that might be the problem. But if you tighten it and the light stays on, you'd be wise to have the certified New Orleans auto repair technicians at Twin Tire check things out. That's because your check engine light could indicate the start of some serious problems - like a bad transmission.
As auto.howstuffworks.com says, "The moment you start noticing something out of the ordinary, it's time to start considering the problem and finding a way to fix it."
That's especially true if your check engine light coincides with one of the other common signs of transmission trouble. Among those, according to auto.howstuffworks: Refusing to go into gear; burning smell; transmission is noisy in neutral; gears slipping; dragging clutch; leaking fluid; grinding or shaking; whining, clunking or humming; lack of response.
You're right in thinking you should take your care to one of Twin Tire's auto repair and auto care service centers. Twin Tire has been the trusted New Orleans auto repair and auto care service center since 1973. Twin Tire has three conveniently located New Orleans auto repair and auto care centers to serve you: Hammond, Harvey and Marrero. Twin Tire also has a New Orleans auto care and auto repair center in Harahan for heavy commercial vehicles.
Twin Tire will be open Monday but will be closed Tuesday for the July 4 holiday.
