Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:
You can count on the experts at R&T Auto Repair Inc. to help your diesel engine last a long time.
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 269-324-0700 or visit R&T Auto 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 R&T Auto 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 R&T Auto Repair Inc. in Portage, MI 49024. 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 R&T Auto Repair Inc. in Portage, MI 49024.
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 R&T Auto Repair Inc., we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 269-324-0700 or visit R&T Auto Repair Inc. today.

Great service, get you in and done quickly, very thorough in checking your vehicle over, highly recommended
R&T is a great shop. We have taken both our higher-mileage vehicles here for over 3 years now and have no complaints. Their prices are VERY reasonable especially compared to car dealerships' service departments. And, there have been several occasions in which their mechanics have gone "above and beyond" in helping us to get our vehicles out the door and back on the road so that we can keep other commitments. Call early for your appointment, though, because they are always busy!
Knowledgeable staff, they're polite answer your questions, they inform you of any possible problems with your vehicle, fair priced and overall they do great work
