Cooling/Radiator

A radiator is the center of the vehicle’s cooling system. Its primary function is to monitor and regulate a vehicle engine’s temperature and prevent it from overheating.

There are three main parts to a radiator: the core, the pressure cap, and the outlet and inlet tanks, we always advise to check the liquid coolant levels regularly, and the hoses yearly. Maintaining your radiator allows it to operate at peak performance.

120$ for an oil change what a rip off. Definitely take advantage of their customers when they can

We never write reviews, but just had to after our interactions with Ivan at Auto Service 1. The TL;DR version – we’ve never had such positive interactions with an automotive service center.Our car broke down in construction on the interstate on our 30th wedding anniversary, as we were driving from our home in Tennessee to visit friends in Minnesota. As we called around to service stations to see who could get our car looked at, most said they couldn’t get us in for a week or more. When Ivan heard our story, he promised that the car would get looked at the next day (we couldn’t get the car to the shop until after it had closed). Ivan stayed in constant contact with us through the inspection process, offering his help even for tourism advice. We were also charged a very reasonable amount for the inspection. Unfortunately, the work we needed had to be done by a Hyundai dealer, so we had the car towed there. Even though all of our interactions with Ivan had been on the phone, we stopped by Auto Service 1 just so we could meet him and shake his hand.

This is the best mechanic shop I've came across im a repeat customer and lucky enough I live down the block. They are honest, great work, compassionate and great prices. Once it's fixed it's fixed and with a 2 year warranty. Way better work then a dealership and the outrageous pricing a dealership has. This shop is the best of the best and Carlos the man that runs the shop is a amazing person very compassionate, honest and caring with addition of new talent infront with Ivan that's a caring and great personality it feels like your at a cafe with your best friend ivan is a key personality infront that makes you want to stay around and have a good time talking and another new talent david, is a great person with great knowledge this place is a dream of a shop and i take all my cars there and all my family's cars there. The the best of the best. 100 stars.Thank you. Nick

I was going on a trip to Wisconsin on Saturday and my Jeep went into limp mode as the ECU was rejecting some after market parts. I showed up there w/o an appointment at 7:45am and they got right to it. Fixing it in 20min so I was able to make my trip! Their service is above and beyond. These guys are my new mechanics and should be yours too.

Danny at Tico‘s treated me with a ton of respect and help me stay within my budget. I had to purchase a vehicle to help get our son safely to and from school. I paid cash but unfortunately it needed a little bit more work than I had hoped originally. Danny Provided me with a comprehensive Assessment of the vehicles help including pictures and a report of must have repairs and suggested repairs etc.… Even over the holiday weekend he was able to replace an entire brake system, brake line as well as provide new tires and windshield wipers to help keep my vehicle safe for our son.… Cannot recommend them enough

My neighbor recommended I try Tico’s auto repair shop (she has been going there for many years and has always had a great experience). Recently as I was trying to double park, I misjudged how quickly traffic was passing me and I accidentally dislodged my front bumper. I was really upset about this but then I remembered Tico’s so I took my car there. Danny had my car all fixed up in less than 3 hours (Midas makes you wait all day!) and his shop did an excellent job. His prices are very reasonable and he is super nice. I am probably going to use them for all my car maintenance going forward!

We had a great experience. Danny and his team gave us a very fair quote. They were communicative throughout the entire process and work was done with no surprises. We have already made an appointment for future work for our cars.

I have used Ticos for all my vehicle repairs over the last 12 years. They are trustworthy to say what’s wrong and needs immediate attention and what to watch for the future. I’ve sent numerous friends to Ticos for their auto repairs and everyone has been happy with the results.Thanks for taking care of us.

I have always been satisfied with services done for our vehicles everytime I brought d them to this auto shop so I bring them to no other place. Carlos and the people at the front desk are very accommodating and friendly, making customers feel like family. The service is just great; I have been with this business for years now and so far, I’ve had nothing to complain about. Great people, satisfying job done.

Carlos is a Gem in a World of no gems!😊 And so are all his mechanics!!! When ever I take my car to him he is attentive, he studies my car, he asks questions looks for the best parts for the best price for me. He makes sure I get my car back as soon as possible! And Everytime I leave I know my car has been in good hands and that whatever the problem was it has been perfectly fixed!!!! I can not say that for MANY places!!!! And being that I am only In this city temporarily, it is a MIRACLE I was BLESSED With finding him right from the start!!!!!! I can not say enough about Carlos and his team!!!! They even have worked an hour late to get my car fixed and back to me.. I am So VERY GRATEFUL for them!!!!!

Very efficient and thorough mechanic services.Experienced and knowledgeable mechanics.Fairly priced.I’m very happy that I found an honest and great mechanic, as a single woman people will definitely take advantage and over charge but here Carlos was patient and explained everything, the follow up report shows a diagnostic and pictures as well.Thank you!

I had my CVT transmission rebuilt there (most shops won’t touch a CVT, only offer a $5k new one). Went great then there was another issue that wrecked the transmission. They put a new one in- no cost to me under their warranty! They did a great job and they’re honest/fair. I was very well taken care of during a very stressful time.

Had a check engine light on my 2015 Ford Fiesta so I brought it into this place after reading the stellar reviews. The positive reviews were all well deserved, the staff (shoutout to Nick and Veronica) were super friendly and professional and the repairs were solid. They sent me full breakdown of any issues discovered from the diagnostic, including photos and videos of affected areas (which I've never received from any mechanic before). The whole matter was taken care of and my car was back to me shockingly fast. 10/10 would recommend
