Here Are 8 Car Maintenance Items You Should Always Leave to the Professionals

With the right tools and Google’d instructions, would-be mechanics can accomplish just about anything in their garage. Some jobs, however, require precision, expensive tools, or extensive knowledge to complete the complex task. Some can even be incredibly dangerous for you or your vehicle. These jobs are often best left to the professional technicians at your local AAMCO Colorado.

Learn the difference between Engine Oils to get the most out of your vehicle

Changing A Clutch

Not complex, but often requires removing the entire engine from your vehicle. Do it once and you may realize that it’s incredibly time-consuming and all that heavy lifting wasn’t worth it. Make the pros do the hard work.

Repairing Or Recharging An Air Conditioner

Think your air conditioning just needs a can of Freon pumped into the system? Think again. If you have a leak in a closed system, just filling it with more Freon won’t save it. Working with the A/C system also involves specific high pressures and components as well as an understanding of the thermodynamics. A minor mistake can fry your compressor.

Working With Or Around Airbags

You could choose the perfect engine oil for your car, but that won’t matter if you don’t schedule oil changes regularly. Motor oil wears out over time causing potentially expensive, damaging effects on your vehicle. It’s important to keep your oil fresh regularly if you want to maximize performance, fuel economy and your engine life.

Rebuilding A Differential

Want the teeth on your differential gears to disintegrate and scream at you while you do? That’s what will happen if you are even slightly off during your differential rebuild. Either make sure you can have the contact patch between the gears be mathematically perfect or let the professionals do it.

Repairing An Automatic Transmission

The complexity and sheer number of pieces that go into an automatic transmission will prove to be an all but impossible task without professional factory certified technicians. Each part needs to be individually inspected for wear and damage and then replaced as needed with precision. Leave it to the pros.

Electrical Work

Vehicles today have so many computers and complex wiring components that the risk of shorts and bad connections will make this maintenance work a nightmare if you don’t know exactly what you’re doing. One wrong step and you can even void your warranty. Leave it to the pros.

Suspension Repairs

It is way too easy to screw up the alignment specs of your suspension, making it more difficult to control your vehicle and reducing the life of your tires. Your suspension keeps your car going straight and keeps you safe. Leave it to the pros.

Check Engine Diagnostics

Check engine codes are often vague and require complex equipment to properly locate the problem with your vehicle. It’s easy to think you have the answer with all the new technology available allowing you to check the reason behind the indicator light. When it comes to reading the code, diagnosing the problem, and getting you back on the road safely, leave it to the pros. Your local AAMCO Colorado has a free check engine light diagnostics coupon available!

Advancements in technology have made it possible to have any car part delivered right to your door step with a few clicks and a credit card.
