To us, it’s important that we’re paying attention to both your needs and the needs of your vehicle.

Exhaust issue don't have to be exhausting, and here's why

exhaust on a vehicle

Exhaust issues are extremely common, no matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive. At Terry's Automotive & Qwik Lube in Gainesville, FL, 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. 

Different Types of Automotive Headlights

Every car, truck, van, and SUV on the road today has headlights. However, you've probably noticed an increase in different types of headlights in more recent years - gone are the days where every vehicle on the road had the same bulb. Here is some information on headlights, from Terry's Automotive & Qwik Lube in Gainesville, FL.

Sometimes it is obvious, others we have to hunt for it!

Here at Terry's Automotive & Qwik Lube in Gainesville we often do diagnostics and sometimes the problem is obvious after hooking the car up to the computer and reading the codes.  However, sometimes it isn't obvious during a test drive or after hooking it up to all those computer programs!  You know there is a problem and a Check Engine Light is on with the fleet customer telling you the car has been having issues starting and the light has been going off and on depending on several factors.  No pattern, no simple answer but the problem becomes obvious when you start following the "threads of the issue" thanks to all that ASE Technician training.
