How to Handle Car Trouble

Nobody wants to find themselves in car trouble, but parts can wear down over time and fail unexpectedly which can put you in a sticky situation. While some car trouble is more severe than others, knowing how to handle your car trouble and what to do next can relieve some of the stress that comes along with dealing with vehicle problems. 

One question you may have is - how can I avoid car trouble? The best way that you can avoid car problems is by making sure that you are staying current with your car's recommended maintenance and services. When you take good care of your car, you guarantee yourself reliable transportation. 

The most common car trouble you may find yourself in is a check engine light. If this warning turns on, don't panic. The most important thing to do is try to minimize your driving and get your car into the experts here at Monticello Auto Service at your earliest convenience. The only way to understand what is going on is to use scan diagnostic tools to pull the fault code from our vehicle's computer system. 

If you find yourself broken down on the side of the road, call for a tow and have the tow truck bring your car directly into our shop. If you are driving and your car suddenly stops working, do your best to pull over safely and out of the way of other vehicles. Once your car is in our shop, our professionals can work quickly to determine what happened and get you back on the road with a reliable vehicle quickly.
