Tune-Ups in Houston and Spring, TX
At Ripley's Total Car Care in Houston and Spring, TX, we are your go-to shop for professional tune-ups in the area. We provide complete auto repair services at both locations. Tune-ups are a great way to refresh your vehicle's performance by replacing key parts and adjusting the timing of certain systems. While the definition of a tune-up has definitely changed over the years, it is mostly just a way to refer to your car's major services.
General Maintenance & Check Engine Lights
Get a full "tune-up" for your car or truck in The Woodlands at either of our locations or our FM 1960 Location. Traditionally, a tune-up was plugs, ignition wires, and caps, and rotors but today's cars are different. In today's terms, a tune-up consists of services that your vehicle needs. We perform a full inspection of your car's most important systems to tweak and replace any parts that have worn out or need adjusting. Your vehicle will run better and will be more fuel-efficient when it leaves our shop!
Today's Auto Maintenance
Today's cars require fewer tune-ups but still require regular maintenance - see your owner's manual for details about your car's recommended maintenance schedule. If your car is due for routine maintenance or a "tune-up", we can take care of you and treat you right.
Call or come by either of our locations: the Rayford Road location or our FM 1960 location. Enjoy a comfortable seat, TV, a variety of magazines, and coffee while you wait.
Your Instrument Panel Lights
Whenever a check-engine light is illuminated it is recommended to visit an auto repair facility as soon as possible. Here are the broadest meanings of the lights on your instrument panel:
Red Lights = Emergency
Yellow Lights = Warning
If there is a failure of any sort it was probably created by something in your engine compartment.
1996 and newer cars are considered OBD II (On Board Diagnostic Generation II). A light indicates where your vehicle's problem arises. A diagnostic computer connected to your car gives us more details about why your dash light came on.
The computer-given code does not necessarily denote the problem but rather the symptom of the problem. The computer provides the hint that our trained technicians can use to get to the root of the problem.
If your car is ready for routine maintenance or a light is illuminated on your instrument panel call us, contact us online, or come on into the Rayford Road location in The Woodlands. Our trained technicians will diagnose the problem and get your car tuned up and back on the road quickly and affordably.
