Transmission Repair

Transmission Repair can be very costly if you don’t change your transmission fluid or if you continue to drive with problems in your transmission. Whether you’re an automatic or manual transmission driver, we can help you shift in the right direction. Here are a few warning signs:

  • Abrupt, hard, or noisy shifts between gears.
  • Delayed or no response when shifting from neutral to drive or reverse.
  • Failure to shift during normal acceleration.
  • Slippage during acceleration. The engine speeds up, but the vehicle does not respond.

Brake Repair

Brake Inspection is required for yearly State Inspection, but you should bring your vehicle in for diagnosis if you experience any of the following problems:

  • The vehicle pulls to one side when the brakes are applied.
  • The brake pedal sinks to the floor when pressure is maintained.
  • You hear or feel scraping or grinding during braking.
  • The “brake” light on the instrument panel is lit.
  • The steering wheel or car shakes during braking.

For more information, contact us or call (610) 696-2633.

Engine Repair

Your vehicle’s engine is the most important part of your car and often the most expensive part to repair or replace. Some common symptoms of Engine Problems are listed below. A simple engine tune-up could pay for itself in improved fuel economy.

  • Difficulty starting the engine.
  • The “check engine” light on the instrument panel is lit.
  • Rough idling or stalling.
  • Poor acceleration.
  • Poor fuel economy.
  • Excessive oil use (more than one quart between changes).
  • Engine continues running after the key is removed.


Suspension Repair

Difficult handling, a rough ride, vibration and irregular tire wear are often signs of a problem with your vehicle’s suspension. Because a car’s suspension is so vital for safe steering, be sure to bring your vehicle to an auto repair shop as soon as you notice the warning signs.

See how the following troubles could greatly affect your ride:

  • Misaligned front wheels and/or worn steering components can cause wandering or difficulty steering in a straight line.
  • Pulling – can be caused by something as routine as under-inflated tires or as serious as a damaged or misaligned front end.
  • Worn shock absorbers or other suspension components can contribute to poor cornering.

Wheels & Tires

If you are putting off rotating, balancing, or replacing your tires you could be costing yourself more money in the long run. Tommy’s Automotive can handle all of your tire service needs.

Below, see how a simple repair can grow into a dangerous and expensive problem:

  • An unbalanced or improperly balanced tire causes a vehicle to vibrate and may wear steering and suspension components prematurely.
  • Defective or improperly inflated tires can cause a vehicle to wander or pull to one side of the road.
  • Not rotating your tires can cause them to wear unevenly and they will need to be replaced more often.

Exhaust Repair

Many exhaust problems are easy to diagnose because your car is louder than it once was. Tommy’s Automotive will also make sure you are not harming the environment or your brain cells with a faulty exhaust system. Tommy’s Automotive repairs and replaces:

  • Catalytic Converters
  • Mufflers
  • Exhaust Manifolds
  • Headers
  • Or just plain old rusted or corroded pipes

For more information about our repair services, call (610) 696-2633.

Electrical Repair

Many issues with your vehicle’s electrical system are caused by the classic problems like a bad alternator, battery, starter, or wiring, but newer cars and trucks have increasingly complex electrical systems. Tommy’s Automotive maintains the latest scanners and other equipment to find the problem. We’re even able to track down any short circuits within your electrical system.
