Job Report: Camry Repair after another Murrieta Auto Shop Failed

inland-auto-toyota-transmission-repair-murrieta

It’s so important to work with a quality auto shop when your Toyota or Lexes needs service or repair. We’re often quite surprised by what we find after other Murrieta shops work on a vehicle. For this Toyota Camry, the customer recently had their vehicle serviced at a reputable auto shop. But the transmission started leaking fluid quite badly, so they decided to bring their car to us. After inspecting the transmission, we found that the previous shop had replaced the transmission gasket with a cheap rubber-style gasket. It only lasted for a short period of time and then started to leak a lot of fluid. In addition to the mess that a leaking transmission causes, there’s also the risk of overheating or under-lubricating the transmission, as the fluid needs to perform both tasks. In addition, the fluid in an automatic transmission is a key component to its operation, like changing gears. Needless to say, a serious transmission leak needs to be addressed quickly.

prius-serive-repair-murrietaHybrids are generally low maintenance vehicles.  The do not usually require as much auto service or maintenance work as other vehicles on the road today.

Murrieta Auto Service Question: How Do Cabin Air Filters Work and Why Do They Require Maintenance?

murrieta-toyota-cabin-filterThe job of a cabin filter is to keep the air inside your car or truck clean and comfortable.  Your vehicle’s cabin air filter keeps your heat and air conditioner (the whole HVAC system of your vehicle) running properly to give you the cabin air quality that you need.

What Does the Cabin Air Filter Do?

Like any filter, your car’s cabin filter prevents unwanted particles from passing through.  In this case, cabin air filters protect your vehicle’s HVAC system from bacteria, dust and pollen.  Cabin air filters also, and importantly, prevent exhaust gas from entering into your heating and A/C ventilation systems.
