Q: The check engine light is on, but there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with my car, what should I do?
A: There are literally hundreds of reasons why a car will display the check engine light. Low oil pressure, lack of fuel pressure, bad oxygen sensor, bad EGR valve, or malfunctioning catalytic converter can all cause the check engine light to come on. The lights are there to warn you. Fortunately, at Rogue Automotive, we have the most modern and up-to-date diagnostic equipment to diagnose and repair your car and quiet those pesky little lights!

Q: The car has a funny musty smell and when I drive it I hear a hissing noise, what could be the problem?
A: Usually that smell is a tell-tale sign of cooling problems, radiator, water pump, heater core etc. Whatever you do, do not open the radiator cap when the car is hot, serious injury can occur. Wait until the car is completely cool and then check the water in the radiator. If the radiator is full, check under the car for any obvious puddles. Failing that, bring it to a shop and have it diagnosed.

Q: You guys gave me an estimate for a certain amount of money, and now you are calling me wanting more money, don't you have to give me the estimated price no matter what?
A: While at Rogue Automotive we do our very best to offer fair prices with an accurate estimate sometimes when our technicians get into the heart of the problem, they may find some other unforeseen problems. In that case, we will always call you and let you know about other issues with your car and our recommendations for fixing them. In the end, you save money because if we collectively ignore those other problems, your safety could be compromised and you could end up having to pay more to fix it at a later date.

Q:I just had my disc brakes replaced and they are now squealing.
A: Sometimes brake squeals are an indication that maintenance is required. Some common conditions that cause brake noise are: Heat cracked or worn "un-true" rotors - Rough finish on resurfaced rotors - Loose fitting brake pads in the caliper - Lack of silicone compound on back of brake pad - Missing springs or anti-rattle clips that should be on the caliper or pad - Improper tightening sequence of lug nuts or caliper hardware. At Rogue Automotive, our specialists can diagnose and repair your brake woes before they turn into brake nightmares.

Q: My car won't start, what do I do now?
A: The battery and the starter are the two most important things to think about. If the headlights are on and are bright, then we could probably assume the battery is good. When the engine turns over like it is trying to start but will not start there are a couple of things to check. Is there fuel? Do you have compression? Does the engine sound like it is turning over fully, or does the engine sound like it is turning over too fast or too slow? A broken timing belt or timing chain will cause the engine to turn over very easily and very fast because the compression process is not taking place. A failed ignition system or plugged fuel filter could also be your culprit.

Q: My transmission is acting funny, what should I do?
A: First we need to define "acting funny". Does it seem to slip or not go fully into gear? Does it make a clunk noise when shifting gears? This could be anything from highly degraded transmission fluid to a broken gear. Get this diagnosed as soon as possible and save yourself some cash. Regular maintenance is always the best way to keep your car healthy.
