Did You Know About Alignment

Posted on April 03,15 by truck2

Poor alignment affects your handling and causes your tires to wear very quickly. At Whitaker Auto Repair in GRAND ISLAND we install quality NAPA replacement parts.

Did You Know About Check Engine Light

Posted on March 12,15 by truck2

When your check engine light comes on a trouble code is stored in the computer. Some codes are universal and can be read by most scanners.

For these kinds of codes, your service center has powerful, and expensive, equipment and software to help them read and retrieve trouble codes.

Did You Know About Water Pump

Posted on March 12,15 by truck2

The water pump’s like the heart of your cooling system, circulating the fluid throughout. It’s a small pump that’s driven by the engine: usually by belt, but sometimes by a chain or gear. The water pump only operates when the engine’s running. Water pump failure is pretty routine for GRAND ISLAND car owners. Some start failing at around 40,000 miles, but most fail by 100,000 miles. Consult your owners’ manual or experienced Whitaker Auto Repair service professional to see what’s recommended.

Since a water pump either works or it doesn’t, you need to change it when it fails. Water pumps fail in one of two ways: the bearings fail or they begin to leak. It’s possible to have a leak from a cracked water pump, but it usually leaks at the gasket where it attaches to the engine. For a cooling system inspection, call Whitaker Auto Repair.

Did You Know About Spark Plugs

Posted on March 12,15 by truck2

The “spark” made by your spark plug is like a tiny bolt of lightning; it’s that powerful. Each time it sparks, a wee bit of material is lost from the electrodes. Over the millions and millions of sparks that happen over the thousands of miles you drive, enough material is lost from the spark plug to affect its performance. That’s one reason they need to be replaced. At Whitaker Auto Repair in GRAND ISLAND we install quality NAPA replacement parts. Give us a call at 308.398.0505 and let us help keep you safely and economically on the road.
