3 Common Roadside Auto Repairs, Byron, Wisconsin

Experiencing a sudden mechanical breakdown by the road is a possibility, even with a well-maintained car. It can be stressful and inconvenient, especially when you need to be at someplace important. But that’s where mobile repair services come in handy. With these services, your car will be up and running in no time. 

When Mobile Repair Service Is Doable

1. Damaged Tires

Faulty tires are among the leading causes of roadside breakdowns. While this can be easily prevented with frequent inspection, it can still happen due to damage from road debris or other unpredictable factors. Swap out your damaged tire with a spare. If you don’t have the equipment or know how to do so, call roadside assistance or a towing company for help. They can also provide replacements for your busted tires so you won’t have to settle for driving on a less-than-ideal spare.

2. Faulty Battery

For discharged batteries, you will need cables to jump-start your vehicle, and if you don’t have them in your trunk, chances are you need to call for mobile repair services. If this doesn’t solve the issue, they might need to tow your car and conduct further repairs at an auto shop.

3. Mechanical Failures

You don’t have to be an expert to change a flat tire or jump-start a car battery, but there are mechanical troubles that require more than just elbow grease. Problems related to engine, transmission, and brakes have to be diagnosed correctly and resolved by a trained professional. Mobile repair services can pinpoint and fix issues like loose electrical connections, faulty spark plugs, or an overheated engine. However, the service they provide may only be a temporary fix to get your car running. You may be advised to take your car into an auto shop for more extensive repairs.
