In January we discussed what constitutes a pull over immediately auto repair emergency.  In February’s post we listed auto repair symptoms that warrant driving straight to the repair shop.

This month we list  9 symptoms that are not emergencies, but do warrant calling your auto repair shop and making an appointment.  They are:

  1. Ride seems bouncy or mushy
  2. Check engine light is on steady
  3. Check gauge light is on
  4. Power windows are inoperative
  5. Minor brake squeak
  6. Slow crank/long crank time
  7. Engine hesitation on acceleration
  8. Vehicle drifts right or left
  9. Maintenance due or oil change reminder light is on (looks like a wrench)

With these 3 lists hopefully you’re armed with enough information to drive safely and knowledgeably.
