Exhaust issues are extremely common, no matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive. At Performance Auto Repair in Montgomery, AL, we can get your exhaust back in shape in no time.
Exhaust issues tend to be neglected, and we get that; there are just other parts of your vehicle that you'd rather focus on. Besides a clogged catalytic converter, there isn’t much risk of damage from a bad exhaust system - it negatively affects your gas mileage, and the sound is annoying, but other than that, it’s an issue many people learn to live with.
When you are having trouble with your car or truck starting and you open the hood up to take a peek to see this....you'll see what an overly corroded battery looks like. This happens naturally over time on vehicle battery terminals. If you are like 99% of normal Montgomery drivers, you don't check your oil or your battery so you don't keep an eye on the amount of corrosion that's building up on your car or truck battery. Here at Performance Auto Repair, we do and there are solvents that we can use here in the shop during a battery maintenance service that will help slow the corrosion process but nothing that can prevent it 100%. Way before it gets to this point, we will be suggesting you consider replacing the battery.
Nothing works if your transmission doesn't work! Simply put you are going nowhere without it and it is the one thing that both car and truck drivers alike never think twice about until it really acts up or they have no power or simply don't move forward. Most of us have a newer car or truck with an automatic transmission in it vs. a standard transmission so do not notice that it is slipping gears until the problem is really serious so the question is how do you get the most out of your transmission? The obvious answer is to take care of your transmission with scheduled service per your owner's manual recommendation but we have put together a simple checklist for our Montgomery drivers to help them become "transmission aware" as it were.
When your light comes on, it is ALWAYS important to look at the issue to see if it is a problem. Especially if it is a light we all understand. Tire pressure is one we all can relate to and an easy one to look at. However, most drivers just assume the air is low in them and ignore it which is not a good idea especially when you are driving a 4x4 diesel truck off-roading and could have picked up anything and/or everything like this truck tire did.

These people really know what their doing and they are fair. They told me up front what it would cost to get the job done. Instead of cashing in, they explained that my truck was worth a whole lot less than the cost of the repairs. Of course I did the google thing and started to research all they had told me was wrong with it. Comparing Ebay prices and the average cost of labor in my area, and the book value of my car. They were right. The repairs would have cost more than the truck was worth. They saved me from the money pit that was my car. I will be returning with all of my car maintenence and will highly recommend their team to anyone needing a honest mechanic. - Camacho (5 star review found on Google)
