2 Essential Steps You Should Take Before Buying a Used Vehicle

2 Essential Steps You Should Take
Before Buying a Used Vehicle

It’s always exciting to get a new car, but it can often feel like you’re going out on a limb when you buy a used vehicle. While it’s true that people sell cars for many reasons, there’s always the chance that there’s something really wrong with the vehicle you’re considering. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to ensure you’re not getting a lemon. 

Order a Vehicle History Report

When you’ve found a car, truck, or SUV you’re interested in purchasing, it’s always a good idea to order a vehicle history report from a service like Carfax or AutoCheck; all you’ll need to order the report is the vehicle’s VIN number. 

Vehicle history reports include details on a car’s ownership, accident history, title status, mileage, and more. They can also uncover damage that the seller doesn’t disclose or know about, such as fire or flood damage or recall notices. Carfax and other vehicle history reports will also often include any major maintenance or repairs that the vehicle received, which can be very helpful given that many sellers likely won’t have this information available. 

While you probably won’t be able to see when every oil change was performed, the repair and maintenance section is helpful in determining whether the factory scheduled maintenance was performed and if any significant repairs were needed. Keep in mind that a vehicle history report won’t cover things like the mechanical condition of the car, whether certain parts are worn, or whether there are components in the particular model that are known to be prone to early failure. For this reason, it’s also recommended to get a pre-purchase inspection. 

Pre-Purchase Inspections

A pre-purchase inspection from a professional mechanic will go much deeper than how the vehicle looks and drives. It will give you a good sense of the car’s overall condition, the status of major safety systems, and how well it’s been maintained. An auto repair shop will also be able to tell you whether there’s any work that needs to be done, which can help you determine an appropriate value for the vehicle. In some cases, you may also be able to use this information to negotiate a new price with the seller. 

Although pre-purchase inspections can vary depending on the auto repair shop you choose, they will typically check for the following issues:

  • Hidden problems with the body, frame, or engine, 
  • Flood or fire damage
  • Rust
  • Fluid leaks
  • Burned-out bulbs
  • Non-functioning accessories
  • Suspicious odors
  • Overdue maintenance tasks
  • The overall condition of the vehicle, including the tires and brake pads
  • Issues with the engine
  • Trouble codes that can indicate mechanical or electrical problems

It’s pretty easy to see how a used vehicle inspection is worth the cost! If problems are uncovered, you can either steer clear of the vehicle or bargain for a better price. If everything is OK, you’ll have a plan for addressing any routine services that should be done, not to mention a whole lot of peace of mind.

The Benefits of Modern Spark Plugs: Enhanced Performance and Longevity

The Benefits of Modern Spark Plugs:
Enhanced Performance and Longevity

The era of changing spark plugs every couple of years has fortunately come to an end. Thanks to advancements in automotive technology, spark plugs now last longer and perform better than ever. Here’s a look at some of the factors that have contributed to the extended lifespan of spark plugs and how modern engine management systems have transformed the way vehicles function. 

The Evolution of Spark Plug Technology

Manufacturers use precious and other metals in the center and side electrodes of spark plugs, which act as a conduit for the high voltage received from the spark plug wires. This allows the spark to jump across the small gap between the central and side electrodes to start the combustion process. 

In the past, copper core spark plugs were the standard choice—and they’re still used today. Although nearly all spark plugs feature a copper core, modern spark plugs also incorporate superior materials like platinum and iridium. These metals offer exceptional durability and wear that help the spark plugs last longer while also minimizing the misfire rate. Modern spark plugs can better withstand the rigors of today’s high-performance engines than conventional copper core spark plugs.

There are numerous benefits to be had from modern spark plugs. Not only do they last longer and save drivers money on the cost of replacements, but they also improve engine performance and fuel efficiency. Long-lasting spark plugs help optimize the combustion process, which contributes to a smoother ride, reduced emissions, and significant savings on fuel costs. 

The extended lifespan of spark plugs also has a positive impact on the environment. With fewer spark plugs being replaced and disposed of, the automotive industry contributes less waste and has a lower environmental footprint. 

Spark Plug Maintenance

Even though modern spark plugs are engineered for longevity and durability, proactive maintenance is still essential to keep your engine operating at its best. Spark plugs will eventually become less effective over time, whether due to age, wear, or electrical or ignition system issues. 

They can also become damaged by contamination, combustion, or overheating. When this happens, they lost the ability to ignite the air-fuel mixture effectively, as well as dissipate heat from the combustion chamber. In addition, the gap between the plugs’ electrodes widens with time—which means the spark has to travel a further distance to initiate combustion. Eventually, this can cause the combustion process to become irregular or erratic. 

Fortunately, modern spark plugs don’t need to be replaced often; most manufacturers suggest replacing them around every 100,000 miles. However, it’s important to note that spark plug replacement intervals vary depending on your engine, its condition, and the type of spark plug you use. Some manufacturers may also recommend more or less frequent replacements depending on your vehicle’s year, make, and model. 

There are several signs that indicate your spark plugs may need to be replaced, including:

  • Pinging, rattling, or knocking noises coming from the engine
  • Difficulty starting your engine or starts that feel disjointed and jerky
  • Poor performance, especially when accelerating
  • Poor fuel economy

If you’ve noticed any of these signs, we recommend scheduling an inspection.

The Importance of Professional Spark Plug Installation

Modern engines are becoming increasingly complex, so although changing the spark plugs used to be a DIY job back in the day, it’s now best to leave replacement to qualified technicians—especially if you have performance modifications. 

Aftermarket parts or performance mods may demand specific spark plug characteristics to accommodate the enhanced engine dynamics. Whether you have performance modifications or a completely stock vehicle, professional installation ensures that your spark plugs are fitted correctly and that your engine operates at peak efficiency. 

If you need your spark plugs replaced or inspected, EuroCar Service is here to help! We specialize in complete care for European makes, including AudiBMWMercedesLand RoverMini-CooperFiatVolvoVolkswagenSaabJaguar, and Smart Car.

Tire Shopping Tips: What You Should Know Before You Replace Your Tires

Tire Shopping Tips: What You Should Know Before You Replace Your Tires

With all the options available, shopping for new tires can feel overly complex at times. Tires come in various sizes and types, not to mention options like performance, all-terrain, all-season, low-profile, winter, and summer tires, each with a wide range of speed ratings. 

When searching for standard tires, it is important to consider certain factors. Prioritize tires with favorable ratings for handling and braking performance, as well as resistance to hydroplaning. If several tire models meet these requirements, it’s recommended to choose the one with the lowest rolling resistance. Here are some more tips to ensure you get the best tires for your needs. 

Do You Need to Replace Your Tires?

Before buying new tires, you should determine whether they’re actually needed. For example, if your car has been pulling to one side, slipping on the road, or having difficulty braking, the issue may not be worn tires. Sometimes, the issue can be as simple as adding air to underinflated tires or getting an alignment.

To determine whether your tires need to be replaced, you can perform a quick and easy test. Take a penny with Abraham Lincoln’s head facing downwards and insert it into the area of the tire with the most wear. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, it’s time to purchase new tires. Some tire experts recommend using a quarter instead of a penny for this test, but either one will give you a good idea of whether you should replace your tires. 

It’s always recommended to replace your tires before they become too worn. Overly worn or bald tires don’t have sufficient tread to grip the road and can pose a serious safety risk for you and other drivers. In addition, being proactive with your tires can help you save money and allow you to avoid settling for whatever tires are available after a sudden blowout. Instead, you can shop around and find the right tires for your needs and budget. 

It’s also important to understand that although most tires wear out before they get too old, they’re only considered safe for a number of years. Although they don’t have an official expiration date, the compounds in the synthetic rubber break down over time, putting older tires at greater risk of damage and blowouts. If your tires are more than five years old, they should be inspected; if they’re more than 10 years old, it’s best to have them replaced. 

Choosing the Right Tires

To select the right size tires for your car, you can refer to:

  • The placard inside the door jamb
  • The owner’s manual
  • The sidewall of your current tires

It’s always best to replace all four tires at the same time for optimal performance and safety—but if you do need to replace a single tire, make sure to select tires that are similar to your current tires and install new tires on the rear axle only, regardless of which wheels drive the vehicle. This will ensure you have good road traction in slippery conditions. Mismatched tires can compromise handling and performance and even damage the powertrain in all-wheel vehicles. 

If you have a four-wheel drive vehicle, however, it’s important to replace all four tires at the same time because all tires need to have the same rolling diameter to avoid binding and wheel hop between the front and rear axles.

Visit EuroCar Service for All Your Tire Needs

Choosing the wrong tires can affect how your car handles—and it can be a waste of money, so consult with your technician to ensure you’re getting the right size, type, and grade for your driving needs. We can also help you balance load requirements, performance, durability, and cost. For tire services, maintenance, and repairs, EuroCar Service has you covered!

Why No Two Repairs Are Alike: Understanding the Differences in Repair Costs

Why No Two Repairs Are Alike:
Understanding the Differences in Repair Costs

It’s a warm summer day, so you turn on your car’s air conditioning only to discover it isn’t working. So, you make an appointment and find out the evaporator needs to be replaced. Your friend recently just had the same repair on their car—so why is the estimate so different?

The fact is, no two vehicles—or their repairs—are alike. 

Different Cars, Differences in Repairs

To understand why the same types of repairs can have widely varying costs, let’s take a closer look at the evaporator example. In one vehicle, the evaporator might be easy to access and replace. In another vehicle, the entire dashboard may need to be removed. Depending on how the unit itself is designed, we may also need to use specialized tools during the repair. This all adds to the cost of labor and the amount of time it takes to complete the repair. 

In addition, the part itself may cost more or less than the evaporator for your friend’s car. Parts for newer vehicles and foreign makes can cost considerably more than parts for an older car or domestic make. The more technologically complex a car is, the more the repairs are likely to cost. So, even though an evaporator replacement is essentially the same repair in any vehicle, the process required for the repair and the cost of the part can vary quite a bit. 

How Can You Be Sure You’re Getting a Fair Price?

If all vehicles and repairs were the same, it would be easy to do comparisons to ensure you’re being charged a fair price—but since repair costs vary, how can you know for sure you’re not being taken advantage of?

This is why it’s helpful to establish a lasting relationship with a reputable repair shop. The shop will know you and your vehicle, but more importantly, they’ll value keeping you as a long-term customer. Repair shops that are only interested in money don’t really care about customer retention, and because of that, they often suggest unnecessary services and inflate their prices. 

When you have a regular shop that’s worked on your vehicle for years, you have experience with them; you pretty much know what to expect when it comes to things like labor costs, parts prices, and warranty policies. 

No one enjoys paying a lot of money for auto repairs; fortunately, automakers have made significant strides in things like corrosion prevention and engine and powertrain technology. Newer vehicles can last longer than older models. One study in a major consumer magazine found that if you can keep your vehicle running for 200,000 miles (an average of 15 years), it can save you up to $30,000 or more on the cost of a new vehicle. When you look at it that way, investing in repairs makes a lot of sense!

Understanding Your Vehicle’s EVAP System

Understanding Your Vehicle’s EVAP System

As you drive, your vehicle’s oil and fuel produce vapors that are very harmful to the environment. Because of this, Evaporative Emissions Control Systems (EVAPs for short) are mandated in all cars, trucks, and SUVs. 

The EVAP system works by drawing in fresh air, gathering the unburned vapors, and delivering them to the intake system, where they can be re-burned in the engine—essentially recycling them. If there’s a problem with the EVAP system, such as a leak or blockage, a trouble code will be generated, and the check engine light will come on.

What Causes Issues with the EVAP System?

The EVAP system is a complicated network of hoses, valves, filters, and other components. While any of these parts can cause an issue with the system that triggers the check engine light, some of the most common problems include:

  • Faulty or loose gas cap
  • Damaged gap cap O ring
  • Damage gas tank filler tube
  • Vacuum feed line leaks
  • Vacuum control valve leaks
  • Damaged vapor tube 
  • Leaking charcoal canister

Although it’s not dangerous to drive with an EVAP leak, it’s best to get the issue repaired as soon as possible. Not only is it harmful to the environment, but it also impacts performance and drivability. You may notice:

  • The check engine light is on
  • Poor fuel economy
  • The fuel system service light is on
  • Engine surging or stalling while driving
  • Engine hesitation or misfires
  • Low power or a lack of power
  • The smell of burning carpet or fuel in the cabin
  • Excessive smoke coming from the exhaust pipe

The EVAP System and the Check Engine Light

Issues with the EVAP system are one of the top 5 reasons for the check engine light to come on. While EVAP problems don’t generally lead to vehicle damage, the fact that they trigger the check engine light means that other issues can be masked if you wait too long to get a repair. 

There are hundreds of issues that can cause the check engine light to turn on—but there’s only one light to signal them. So if the light came on because of an EVAP issue that hasn’t been fixed, and another problem arises, you won’t be alerted to the new issue because the light is already on. 

Getting Your EVAP System Repaired 

At your repair appointment, one of our technicians will pull the trouble code and begin performing diagnostics to determine the cause of the issue. In some cases, we may test the valves to find a blockage or perform a low-pressure smoke test to find the leak. After performing the necessary repairs, we’ll reset your check engine light.

What is Fuel Injector Cleaning?

What is Fuel Injector Cleaning?

Are you looking for ways to save money at the gas pump? One of the most common issues we see with fuel economy is clogged fuel injectors. When the fuel injectors get blocked by carbon deposits and debris, it can cause your vehicle to use more fuel than it used to. Fortunately, fuel injector cleaning is generally all that’s needed to get your vehicle’s mileage back on track. 

What Are Fuel Injectors, and What Does Fuel Injection Cleaning Entail?

Fuel injectors are components that send fuel from the gas tank into the engine. The injectors atomize the fuel and then force it directly into the combustion chamber at the precise time in the combustion cycle. This process happens thousands of times a minute. Over time, high temperatures under the hood and variations in fuel quality can cause the injectors to collect wax, dirt, water, additives, and carbon. This can cause them to become partially clogged, which prevents them from being able to deliver the right amount of fuel at the proper pressure. 

When your vehicle’s fuel injectors are dirty, it causes the fuel to burn less efficiently, leading to a loss of power and poor fuel economy. Some other signs that can indicate when it’s time to have your fuel injectors serviced include:

  • Rough idling
  • Engine misfires
  • Engine vibration
  • The check engine light is on
  • Fuel leaks
  • A smell
  • Engine surges

If your fuel injectors are completely clogged, there’s a chance your engine won’t start at all. 

During your fuel injection service, our technicians will inspect the various components associated with the fuel injection system, including the system’s connections, vacuum lines, pressure regulator, and fuel rail. We’ll also clean the fuel injectors, so they operate perfectly and deliver the ideal amount of fuel for your engine. Although it can vary based on your make and model, fuel injector cleaning is typically recommended every 36-48 months or around every 45,000 miles. 

Keep Your Engine Performing its Best with Fuel Injection Cleaning 

For an engine to perform well, it needs a carefully balanced mix of fuel and air. If the injectors become clogged, it can disrupt the ratio of the mixture and affect the combustion process, resulting in issues with starting your engine, drivability, performance, and gas mileage. At EuroCar Service, we use state-of-the-art equipment and cleaners during our fuel injection services to restore your engine’s performance and fuel economy.

What is Differential Service—And Do You Need It?

What is Differential Service – And Do You Need It?

When you drive around a corner in your car, the outside wheels have a slightly longer distance to travel than the inside wheels. Because of this, the outer wheels need to spin at a faster speed to keep pace with the inner wheels. The component that makes this possible is called the differential. The differential essentially allows your wheels to travel at different speeds without binding or hopping while transferring power from the engine

If you have a rear-wheel drive vehicle, the differential is on the rear axle; for front-wheel drive vehicles, the differential function is handled by the transaxle. All-wheel drive vehicles have differentials on both axles, as well as a center differential or a transfer case. This allows compensation between the front and the rear axles. 

Why Differential Service is Important

Since all the power of the engine is transferred through the differential(s), they’re very strong and built to last a long time. However, like other components in your vehicle, your differential needs to be serviced in order to perform its best.   

Like engines, differentials use oil to keep the internal gears lubricated and reduce friction that can cause excessive wear or heat. However, differential oil is much thicker than engine oil. It needs to be changed at regular intervals because the oil will become thin and contaminated over time. If the oil isn’t changed, the differential will start to have metal-on-metal contact, which will wear out its gears. 

What’s Involved in a Differential Service?

During a differential service, your technician will drain the old differential fluid and replace it with new fluid. They’ll also inspect the u-joints, which connect your drive shaft to the differential. In some cases, we may recommend servicing these as well. 

The interval for differential service can vary based on your vehicle, its mileage, and your typical driving conditions, but it’s generally around every 40,000 to 60,000 miles. However, if you frequently drive on dirt roads or other dusty conditions, it may need to be changed more frequently. Check your owner’s manual for recommendations on your car, or ask your service advisor. 

Differential Replacement

Although differentials last a long time, they’ll eventually wear out and need to be replaced. A failing differential isn’t something you want to ignore—it can freeze up while you’re driving and cause you to lose control or damage other parts of your vehicle, like the axle, driveshaft, or transmission. Some common signs your differential needs to be repaired or replaced include:

  • Excessive engine oil consumption
  • Reduce handling around corners 
  • Difficulty steering
  • Noises like grinding gears, clunking, whining, or howling
  • Sidewall or out tire damage
  • Vibrations that increase as you speed up

If you’ve noticed any of the above signs or you’re due for a differential service, contact the pros at EuroCar Service.

What is a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin)?

You probably know what a USB is, but have you ever heard of a TSB?

“TSB” stands for “Technical Service Bulletin”. After a new vehicle has been introduced and driven in the real world by actual consumers, certain design flaws or weaknesses that weren’t discovered during the design and engineering process are revealed. When this happens, automakers send out TSBs. Although they’re generally released when a vehicle is in its first model year, TSBs can be issued at any time as issues are discovered.

While these can be used to alert consumers, their main purpose is to let auto technicians know about problems to watch for. TSBs can be issued for a variety of flaws, including loud noises while the vehicle is turning or a power door that doesn’t close properly.

TSBs vs. Recalls

One important distinction about TSBs is that they’re not the same as a recall. Recalls are made when it’s discovered that a vehicle has some sort of defect that produces illegal emissions or could injure drivers and their passengers. With a recall, the manufacturer has to pay for the safety-related defect to be repaired, usually at a dealership.

When a TSB is issued, however, it’s essentially an acknowledgment that the vehicle’s manufacturer has noticed a pattern of something not working the way it should on a particular model. In a TSB, manufacturers will also suggest the proper way to repair these known issues. The cost for a repair listed in a TSB will usually only be covered by the manufacturer if the car is still under warranty.

If a problem with a vehicle is particularly widespread, the manufacturer may also send out an “Owner Notification” letter. When this happens, they generally have a good idea of the VIN numbers that are affected by the defects. Owner notifications will have time and mileage restrictions, and in some cases, these may extend beyond the warranty period. If your car isn’t covered by a warranty anymore, but a TSB has been issued for it, you can bring your vehicle to any service facility to have the problem repaired.

How to Find Out if Your Car Has a TSB

You can find out whether your car has had a TSB issued for free by visiting the National Highway Traffic Safety Institute’s Safety Issues & Recalls page. There, you can look up general safety issues and recalls by entering your car’s year, make, and model or searching your VIN. Or, feel free to ask your service advisor about any TSBs that may have been issued for your vehicle.

Although the issue that led to the release of a TSB may not pose any safety risks, it’s still a good idea to have it repaired, especially if your car is still under warranty. If you wait, it could affect the functionality of your vehicle, or lead to a more expensive repair. TSBs guide our technicians on the best repair procedure to get everything in your car working as it should.

At EuroCar Service, we’re committed to maintaining your car’s performance, safety, and fuel economy. We specialize in all European makes, including Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Land Rover, Fiat, Mini-Cooper, Smart Car, Volvo, Volkswagen, Jaguar, and Saab. To find out if a TSB has been issued for your vehicle, or schedule an appointment, call us today at 206-527-8828 or contact us online.

How Much Does It Cost to Repair a BMW?

If you’ve landed on this page, then you likely already own a BMW, or you’re considering buying one and want to know how much money this luxury, German vehicle could actually cost you. You came to the right place. 

As with any type of automobile, a BMW will require you to change the car’s oil, timing belts, air filters, brakes, and possibly the transmission and engine over time. Of course, the make and model of the BMW, as well as the year, will better determine the specific amount of money you’re spending on repairs. 

However, in general, you can expect to spend between $135 and $175 per oil change for your BMW. When you pay a professional to replace the vehicle’s timing belts, expect to spend between $400 and $900. Again, because we’re talking about a luxury vehicle, parts and labor tend to run more. A cabin air filter change generally runs between $30 and $70, while new brakes cost anywhere between $150 and $300 per axle. 

What About More Significant Repairs

Bigger repairs and replacements, such as those involving the transmission or engine will put a much bigger dent in your wallet or purse. 

For example, the cost of a new BMW transmission could be over $3500, again, depending on the particular type of automobile you own. Engines are typically priced between $3000 and $5000. 

Depending on the repair or repairs that you may need done on your BMW, you may want to weigh the pros and cons of purchasing a new car. By the time you pay for parts and labor, as well as a rental car while you’re waiting for your vehicle to get out of the shop, it may make more sense to simply buy new.

Are BMWs Expensive to Repair? 

If you’ve landed on this page, then you likely own a BMW or are considering purchasing one. Either way, you’re curious to know whether or not it’s expensive to repair the luxurious, German vehicle—and you came to the right place to get this information. We are a leading European auto repair facility in Seattle. 

Simply put, at EuroCar Service, we are here for you! 

In a word, yes, it can be quite expensive to repair a BMW. Of course, myriad factors go into just how expensive the BMW repair can be, including the year, make, and model of the car, as well as the specific type of repair that is needed. 

As mentioned, BMWs are luxurious, high-performance vehicles, but that’s not the only reason as to why parts, repair, and maintenance can add up, putting a dent in your wallet or purse. For starters, the automobile is designed for driving enthusiasts, not just a method to get around town. BMWs are known for having sophisticated parts and technology that require specialized certification to repair properly. 

For example, a simple task like changing the battery can cost upward of $400, as the mechanic has to register the battery to the engine control module. If this doesn’t occur, the car won’t understand how to charge the battery, leading to it dying prematurely.  

Additionally, Genuine Parts, parts that were originally installed during the production of the vehicle, are pricey. You may have the option of using different parts, however, Genuine Parts will allow you to keep the car original. Further, these parts are always guaranteed to be compatible. 

OEM Parts and Aftermarket Parts are available at a cheaper price but are less reliable. 

To give you more of an accurate estimate of how much a BMW repair can cost, we want to know what particular issues you’re experiencing with your car.

So, do you have a BMW that requires repairing? At your convenience, reach out to our team and tell us what we can do for you.
