ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Your engine is one of, if not the most important major component of your car. Without it working in good order, it's impossible for you to go anywhere. If it runs inefficiently, you may face a whole host of problems that can be avoided with relatively simple maintenance. At Hall's Automotive we provide all of the expertise and parts needed to keep your engine running happily and at peak efficiency.




Oil Changes
One of the simplest ways to determine the condition of your engine is to examine the oil that drains out during an oil change. The oil circulates through much of your engine, so it's a great way to determine the overall health of your car's power plant. Ideally, we want your oil to be darker than when it went in with uniform viscosity and no solid particles. Solid particles are a major concern because they mean that something inside the engine, be it a seal or anything else, is breaking apart. Engines contain a lot of finely balanced mechanisms with only a few micrometers of space for moving parts to clear each other. Any solid particles moving through your engine can cause a massive amount of damage very quickly. At Hall's Automotive we perform expert analysis on your oil to make sure that everything is working perfectly within your engine's internals, and we carry the best oils to replace that fluid in your vehicle.


Engine Coolant
Another simple item that can save your engine untold misery, is the coolant fluid, which keeps everything running at the correct temperature. The many moving parts inside your engine, as well as the explosions taking place within its combustion chambers, generate a significant amount of heat. As with any machine, your engine has temperature tolerances at which it happily operates. Once those tolerances are exceeded, things can start to go wrong. A common side effect of overheating can be radiator failure. The water that cools the engine becomes heated and pressurizes the radiator past a safe level causing the scalding water to spray out. This dangerous problem can be avoided with the engine coolants used by Hall's Automotive.


Filters
To work efficiently, your car's engine needs the ingredients for combustion to be delivered in the purest form possible. To this end your engine contains a number of filters which keep everything nice and clean. Hall's Automotive's engine thorough maintenance keeps checks on your air, oil, and fuel filters, replacing them as needed to keep your car running at its highest efficiency.


Fuel Injector Cleaning
Working alongside your spark plugs are the injectors that shoot a precise amount of fuel into the combustion chamber. Over time these injectors can become clogged with contaminants from fuel. Hall's Automotive carries a line of specially developed injector cleaning solutions which open the injector tubing back up and get your car back to making the most power that it can.


Accessory Belts
Engine accessories such as the alternator and air conditioning compressor rely on belts that take power from the engine to run them. Over time, these belts can become frayed and damaged. If your alternator belt snaps, for example, your engine won't be able to generate the electricity it needs to charge the battery and keep itself running. Hall's Automotive can keep a close eye on the health of your accessory belts and ensure that all your engine's pulleys are lined up perfectly to allow for the maximum amount of use from your belts.


Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 520-790-1885 or visit Hall's Automotive today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Hall's Automotive today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Hall's Automotive in Tucson, AZ 85714. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Hall's Automotive, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 520-790-1885 or visit Hall's Automotive today.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Hall's Automotive in Tucson, AZ 85714.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Hall's Automotive, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 520-790-1885 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Whether you're in need of simple oil service, or more significant engine maintenance, call Hall's Automotive at 520-790-1885 to learn how we can help you get back on the road quickly!

Very good shop. Nice people. And they do good work FAST, even though they were super busy they got me in and out of there.

I brought in my 2000 Volvo v40 and they knew exactly what to do with it. They fixed it up in no time and it was excellent customer service and kept me updated. Highly recommend this shop they did a fantastic job at fixing my problems on the car!!!


-Alexis A.

I've taken my truck to them a couple of times now and have had a really good experience. They're very responsible with the price, they have many years of experience and are very professional. I will be a lifetime customer.


-Todd B.

WOW. MY TRUCK RUNS SO WELL! The service was excellent! I was preparing my truck for my 16 year old and wanted her to drive a problem free vehicle. I was lazy and didn't maintain my truck very well. Hall's Automotive did so good at fixing it up that I have them do all my work now. You will get a fair price. You won't be sorry.


-Marc R.

Where to start, I came to Larry with a nightmare of a project. I need a complete engine rebuild, clutch, steering rack, transfer case, rotors, brakes pretty much if was on the car it needed to be replaced. The car had sat for two years and basically was a shell of broken dreams. Larry and his incredibly friendly and efficient staff too the project and quoted me a time and date sure enough they delivered. This job was not for the feint-of-heart. Hall's Automotive definitely made a life time customer and will have my business from now on. I HIGHLY recommend this shop from projects large to small.


-Anthony H.

Honest, kind mechanic. Trustworthy and decent with appropriate prices. Not the cheapest but someone you can use again and again.


-Matt & Natasha B.

I definitely recommend this shop. Great service! I was able to get an appointment right away, they fixed my car in one day, and with a great price.


-Chrissy M.

I was referred to Larry by the shop (BrakeMax on Pantano) that I take my mid 60's Corvette to for oil changes. I needed help with tune-up and minor repair work. Finding a auto repair shop that works on old cars isn't easy. Larry took care of all the issues the old car had, as well as giving the old car a mechanical look over. I highly recommend Hall's Auto for your car needs.


-Michael H.

I would recommend Halls automotive to everyone. Larry did such an amazing job fixing the engine of my truck and at such a reasonable price too. I only go to Halls, even for simple maintenance checkups.


-Jenny C.

While passing through Tucson, my car (a 2003 Crown Vic) began making a horrible noise that made me halt my trip home to the Northwest in fear of breaking down in the desert. After explaining all that, Larry agreed to see me as soon as I came in. We hopped in the car and he diagnosed the issue immediately and had me ready to go promptly. I didn't actually need a repair (non-essential ac component I didn't care about in my hurried trip home) and he let me go FOR FREE with peace of mind after explaining everything in great detail. I suppose my only complaint is that I can't find such an honest mechanic in Oregon. I only hope that you, the review reader decide to trust halls with your repairs.


-Elijah H.

Was passing through Tuscon on way to San Diego and my axle bearing broke. I googled a mechanic near me. Called Halls automotive and Larry was able to provide a little bit of insight on what to do. He even suggest a tow company in which he trusts. The tow was very reasonable. Once the car got it into his shop he was able to take a look at it, give me an estimate and fixed within a day and a half. Larry even updated me on what exactly he was doing and why. One of his mechanics even gave me and my 3 year old a ride to the hotel. Larry didn't just "FIX" the broken part (which I think the last mechanic did) he brought parts in from different places and chose the best one for my dollar. After everything was fixed, Larry assured me i wouldn't have this problem again. I 100% trust he did a amazing job and in a reasonable amount of time also. Thank you Halls Automotive!
