Tims Auto Service
I went to Napa auto service in villa rica beside Ocharleys to replace my fan on my honda and they said i had a blown head gasket and my car wasnt gonna last me a day ! Well after being intears and driving my so called blown head gasket car everywhere from thorton rd to hwy5 i decided to call Tims auto service and tell him my situation. Tim the owner said to bring the car in and he will look at it. He told me there was NO signs of a blown head gasket and all i needed was a fan put on. He only charged me 150 �������� 110 $ less than Napa was gonna charge ! Its been 2wks my car has been driving like a dream since then ! THANK YOU TIM UR THE BEST ��������������������❤

When you find an honest mechanic, you stick with them for life if you can. I have found the most honest mechanic I have ever found. He tries to save me money while still getting the job done right. Tim is a good guy, and the rest of his staff is very friendly. I would rather drive an extra 20 miles to use Tim's auto service than use the one down the street from me.

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
