You can count on the experts at Mekaniks Plus Car Care Corner to help your diesel engine last a long time.
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 805-487-8559 or visit Mekaniks Plus Car Care Corner today.
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 Mekaniks Plus Car Care Corner 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 Mekaniks Plus Car Care Corner in Oxnard, CA 93030. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.
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 Mekaniks Plus Car Care Corner in Oxnard, CA 93030.
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 Mekaniks Plus Car Care Corner, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 805-487-8559 or visit Mekaniks Plus Car Care Corner today.
On a trip from Orange County to San Jose area, my engine spit out a spark plug. After a Google search for auto repair, I called and Adam the service writer, knew what needed to be done. He checked his stock, and said he can compete the repair this afternoon. They promptly repaired the spark plug hole, replaced defective parts and I was on my way in a couple of hours. Courteous and honest service.
Really nice people, clean and very nice lobby, knowledgeable, and they service CNG vehicles.
I have been going to them for a few years. They always go the extra mile. Friendly and courteous and always stand behind their work.
Very good first time experience with Mekaniks. They are polite, professional and honest with a reasonable price.
This is my first time to write a review, the guys here(Mario, Adam, Christian just to name a few) are the most helpful and honest, reliable shop to do business with. We live in Ojai and bring our Volvo XC90 here over any mechanic shop. We've had many problems with this car since purchase and they have resolved every problem we've had. Beyond never being annoyed to my many phone calls they have the BEST customer service, prompt repairs, they really look out for you. My car broke down with my 3 year old in the car in an intersection in topanga my tow insurance was going to take 2 hours and Mario sent 2 tow trucks to come take me to safety within 45 minutes! This is one of the many reasons we will never take out cars to anybody but them. Truly exceptional care for the people and cars they repair! I would give them 1000 stars if I could!!
I'm very picky with auto repair places since I almost always have bad experiences. This was one of the best experiences I've had ever. Fast, professional, friendly, I will be going here from now on!
These people are intelligent and helpful. Clean shop. Fair prices. I am happy with services they have provided.
Strongly recommended. If you want a shop that's honest and doesn't just want to take money from you, mekanik plus is the place. I went in to get my transmission serviced and, honestly would have spent the money needed to fix it. After speaking with Adam he explained that I had a warranty on it and to take it to Nissan instead of just taking my money. Thanks guys.
