Check Engine Light Diagnostics in Ludington MI

Mick’s Truck and Auto offers comprehensive automotive maintenance and repair services in Ludington, including check engine light diagnostics and repairs. Our nationally ASE certified technicians use state-of-the-art digital diagnostic tools to talk to your vehicle’s onboard computer, and they combine information gleaned from these tools with their extensive experience to pinpoint the cause of the check engine light, and to carry out necessary repairs. The good news is that the check engine light does not necessarily mean protracted and expensive repairs. Even something as simple as a gas cap that does not hold pressure can trigger the check engine light. The bad news is that without a professional scanning the codes and applying his experience in tracking down the root cause of the check engine light, it is difficult to ascertain if the light indicates something fairly benign, or something very serious. There is, however, one condition which is very clear: if the check en ... read more

Fall Vehicle Inspection in Ludington, MI

Fall is in the air, and with Fall and Winter come new challenges to your car's ability to get you places. At our Ludington auto repair garage we offer Fall vehicle checkup to make sure you don't face any surprises when the weather is cold, wet and stormy. At Mick's Truck and Auto we recommend brake check, suspension check, tire inspection and battery check before the weather turns really cold. We can combine these checks with an oil change to make it more convenient for you. Since stopping becomes more challenging under wet and snowy conditions, we recommend brake inspection - checking brake pads, rotors, calipers, brake fluid lines and the condition of the brake fluid itself. Worn out suspension can cause vehicle control problems, and result in longer stopping distance as well, so we recommend suspension check to make sure your vehicle can perform optimally in inclement weather. Tire checks are simple yet vital to your safety - tires need to have no bald spots, and the ... read more

Recurring Auto Maintenance – It’s Not Just Oil Change

Recurring Auto Maintenance – It’s Not Just Oil ChangeChanging engine oil on regular basis is the absolute foundation of good vehicle maintenance. Now that fully synthetic motor oil has become the standard, we recommend an interval of 5000 miles between oil changes. But what about some other recurring maintenance tasks?  Here is a handy list: Wheel Alignment If your vehicle’s wheels are out of alignment, it not only accelerates tire wear, but can have negative impact on how the vehicle handles. To save the cost of premature tire replacement, and to improve overall handling of the vehicle, we recommend yearly wheel alignment as a maintenance task. If your vehicle hits a big pothole or a curb, we recommend alignment check. Tire Rotation/Balancing Regular tire rotation extends the life of your vehicle’s tires. We also check tire pressure when you bring your vehicle for tire rotation or bala ... read more

Pre-Winter Vehicle Check

Pre-Winter Vehicle Check Winter driving can be stressful as well as challenging. Some people, though, get excited thinking about the challenge of icy and slippery roads in the winter. At Mick’s Truck and Auto in Ludington we want your winter driving to be uneventful, maybe even boring. To this end, we recommend that you have your vehicle checked out at our Ludington garage before winter arrives. Below we list some of the main vehicle systems and subsystems that should be inspected and brought into top condition before the arrival of winter hazards: Brakes - brake systems get an extra workout during winter, particularly the ABS ( anti-lock braking system). Having a brake inspection, and brake fluid change (if indicated by tests) will go a long way towards assuring safe winter travel. Tires - properly inflated winter tires are the way to go.  We will also check that tire tread is sufficient depth to evacuate all that wate ... read more
