Aftermarket Auto Repair Questions Answered by Scott Muse »
Section: Aftermarket Auto Repair
Q:  I\'m about to go buy a new car. When my brother bought his, they really pushed him to buy an extended warranty. I know they say not to buy those things, but I\'m not sure if that\'s true when it comes to cars. I\'m not a mechanic, and don\'t know where to take the car if something happens after the warranty. Should I buy a warranty?
A: 

If the car is brand new it will usually come with a 100,000 mile warranty and or 3 years whichever comes first. I am not a big fan of the extended warranties on new vehicles. You can always buy one down the road at a later date. Also it like pulling teeth when it comes time for them to pay out a warranty.

 

                    Thank You!

Q:  My Honda is making this weird clicking noise from the front wheel area whenever I turn a corner. The faster I'm going, the faster the click, so I'm guessing it's something to do with the wheel or something else down there?
A: 

Hi, the noise you are describing sounds like a bad CV Axle the CV axle turns the front wheels of the vehicle. It very common on Hondas and takes about 2 hours or less to repair and usually runs around $325.00

Q:  My car won't pass emissions. They said something about an oxygen sensor. What is that, and do I have to take it to a dealer to get it fixed? It's a 2003 Honda Accord, so it's out of warranty.
A: 

 

Hi, The oxygen sensor in your car is installed in the exhaust system and its function is to determine the amount of unburned  fuel that took place during a combustion cycle.(While engine is running) The cars computer adjusts fuel mixture and timing based on this sensors reading as well as several other sensors input to the ECU. If the oxygen  sensor is not working correctly it can affect fuel mileage and performance. You will not pass emission testing until it is replaced. You do not have to go to the dealership to have it replaced. If you would like a quote please feel free to us at 678-947-4040. We would like the opportunity to earn your business. It should not be a very expensive repair should not take very long.Thank You!

Q:  This isn't entirely auto related, but I figure you might have an answer, since it is a gas engine. I've got an 8 year old Briggs and Stratton V-twin in a riding mower that has a problem. When I first start it, it runs fine. But once it gets hot, it will only run on full choke. I know these engines are known to have head/head gasket problems. Would you guess that I could have a broken head that's opening up when it gets hot, or could it be something else? I just want to ask another opinion before I go pulling the heads.
A: 

If you have to run full choke when the engine is hot that usually means the engine is starving for fuel and you more than likely have a vacuum leak. I would check the gasket between the Carburetor and the Cylinder Head and make sure the carburetor is not loose. This is a common problem. I hope this Helps

 

   Thank You!
