St. Thomas Auto Repair | The Auto Guys

full service auto repair

Your vehicle may require repairs from time to time. Mechanical parts do wear out and no longer perform the job they were intended to do. Sometimes this is unexpected and it is our job to perform a thorough inspection and inform you about potential repairs before they become a problem. We perform a “no charge” comprehensive courtesy inspection on all vehicles. The results are explained to you to enable you to make an informed decision about any repairs that may be needed.

Diagnostic Services

Don’t be fooled if it seems to be running okay with the light on.

We know it can be stressful when your check engine light comes on because it could be caused by almost anything. Our trained technicians will use the latest diagnostic tools and equipment to help determine exactly what service your vehicle needs to keep it running smoothly.

The next time you see one of these, don’t try to fix it yourself. At The Auto Guys, our trained technicians will be able to test and repair your vehicle properly.

Make a service appointment if your vehicle shows any of the following symptoms:

When the check engine light is off, the engine is running at its peak performance. This means improved fuel economy and lower emissions.

  1. Illumination of the “Service Engine Soon” light
  2. Improper engine idling, hesitation or stalling
  3. Excessive exhaust smoke
  4. Abnormal engine noises
  5. Noticeable fuel odors

Preventive Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is a schedule of planned maintenance actions aimed at the prevention of breakdowns and failures. Many drivers tend to stall when it comes to keeping up with some everyday automotive basics.

You can prevent expensive vehicle repairs and extend the life of your vehicle with the factory scheduled maintenance that The Auto Guys can provide. Statistics show that it costs far less to maintain a vehicle than to repair it.

The expert auto mechanics at The Auto Guys know the recommended maintenance services for each make and model and are trained and licensed to provide all factory recommended maintenance services and new vehicle warranty maintenance and we will help you follow the schedule for your vehicle.

Any dashboard trouble lights that come on should never be ignored. One of these signs is the check engine light. Something as simple as not tightening the gas cap enough could set off the check engine light in newer vehicles. There is only one way to tell what the cause is, and how to fix the problem. That is, to bring the car to someone reputable to hook a scanner up to the diagnostic port located on your vehicle’s computer.

Believe it or not, every time you drive you are performing preventative maintenance.

You know your car better than anyone else. For example, if it starts to pull to the right while driving down the road, you know that you might need an alignment done. If you go to long without getting one done, your car will need tires prematurely.

The factory scheduled maintenance that The Auto Guys offers will help prevent large repairs, keep your vehicle running safer and longer, and improve your fuel efficiency. We can tailor a package that meets the specific requirements for your vehicle. By using our quality service and parts, our technicians can perform all of your vehicle’s maintenance and repairs while keeping your warranty in effect.

Let us help you stay on the road and prevent unnecessary wear and tear on your vehicle and schedule your preventative maintenance car service with the Auto Guys! The Auto Guys are proud to be your #1 auto repair store in St. Thomas and surrounding area.

The dealership is NOT your only option.

Tire Center

We carry St. Thomas’s largest selection of brand name tires.

Tires are the connection between your vehicle and the surface of the road. A critical part of your vehicle’s suspension system, tires are responsible for transmitting the forces of driving, steering, and braking to the surface of the road.

Although tires are easily maintained, they are often overlooked. The air inside your tires and the design of the tire influence vehicle performance, tire tread life, and ride comfort. Tire maintenance is vital for getting the most out of your tires by maximizing mileage and tread wear.

Our staff will help you understand the basics of tire care and maintenance, like when you should seek tire rotation, balance, and alignment. We will also help you understand tire sidewall markings, teach you the best time to purchase a new set of tires, and show you how to choose the right set of tires for your vehicle. Regularly rotating tires, which should be done with every other oil change, can mean a longer life for your tires and prevent uneven wear.

If it’s time you had your tires inspected, and you’re located in the St. Thomas area, visit the Auto Guys at 135 South Edgeware Rd.
