Do you work on all types of vehicles?
We work on most vehicles. We do not service FIAT, SAAB, PORCHE, or Hybrids.
Do you work on hybrid vehicles?
No, this is a very specialized vehicle. You should go back to the dealer for service.
I have a new car, do I need to take it to the dealer to get it serviced?
No. Any licensed motor shop can do your regular maintenance.
How important are the “recommended” maintenance services?
It’s very important to do recommended major service intervals at 15K, 30K, 60K and 90K.
Do the services Angel’s provide come with any type of warranty?
Parts and labor typically have a 90-day warranty, with 1-year and 2-year warranties available, depending on the service.
Can you give me a price over the phone, or do I need to bring my car in to get an accurate price?
It is always a good idea to bring the car in to be inspected so that we can give you not only accurate pricing, but also to ensure that we are addressing the complete problem.
How often should I service my transmission?
We recommend following your car’s service manual schedule. Having said that, typically transmission service should occur every 30K miles.
Am I responsible for towing my car to Angel’s if it breaks down?
If it is a major repair, we offer free towing within 25 miles of our location.
How long will it take to rebuild the transmission?
Typically, it takes 2-3 days to rebuild a transmission, but that entirely depends on the car make, model and extent of repair.
What are a few signs to look for before the transmission breaks down?
You should pay attention to your check engine light going on, delays in shifting gears, and loss of power on acceleration. These are all symptoms of possible transmission trouble.
How often should I change my oil?
Oil changes should be done every 3,000-4,000 miles, or the manufacturer’s recommended schedule (see your manual). However, if you don’t drive your car a lot (under 12,000 miles per year), you should have your oil changed 3 times a year, regardless of mileage.
How long does an oil change take?
Typically, an oil change should only take about 45 minutes.
