Do You Need Brake Repairs?
When deciding whether or not to schedule brake service, there are some things to consider.
Do you hear any of the following:
- Grinding noises?
- A continuous high pitched squeal when the vehicle is moving?
- A continuous high pitched squeal when stopping?
- A high pitched, repetitive sound like birds chirping when stopping?
- These sounds indicate a problem with your brakes pads, which can in turn lead to other brake issues. The brake pad lining begins to wear out, causing the metal backing to contact the brake disc, which damages the brakes.
If your brake pedal shakes when you press it, this may be a sign of bad rotors. It is also important to feel if your car pulls to one side when braking. Pulling indicates a bad caliper or uneven brake pad wear, which can happen from uneven distribution of pressure in the brake lines.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
If you want your car to last, regular oil and filter changes are the most important service you can do. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. While synthetic oils don’t break down as rapidly as traditional oils, they still become contaminated. To maintain optimum performance, we recommend changing your oil and filter every 5,000 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. To exceed manufacturer’s specifications, we use only TOTAL oil and OEM filters. Call the expert team at SST Auto at (203) 730-0311 to schedule your maintenance services today.
Any car part manufacturer will tell you that preventive maintenance is critical to the part’s lifespan. Like other auto parts, car engines aren’t built to last forever. However, you can increase the engine’s lifespan by performing regular preventive maintenance. The easiest way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy is to provide regular engine maintenance for your vehicle.
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. This is especially critical for finely built European cars such as Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Mini, Volvo, Audi and Volkswagen. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call (203) 730-003 or visit our shop at 52 Miry Brook Road, Danbury CT 06810 today.
If your car has direct injection, we recommend Carbon Cleaning. Click here to learn more.
With modern automobiles, engine failure is rare. However, it can still happen, whether from a lack of maintenance, an internal component failure, or simply from the wear and tear of high mileage. If your vehicle needs an engine rebuild or engine replacement, you need expert, certified technicians performing the work. Typically an engine will outlast your time with your vehicle, but if it ever gives up, the team at SST Auto are the best in the business for quality engine repair and replacement services.
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 ignition system maintenance and replacement needs or questions, call the experts at SST Auto today at (203) 730-0311.
Automotive ignition systems have gotten significantly more efficient and reliable over the years. But components can still wear out or fail. If your coil or wires are failing, you car will run rough, and both acceleration and fuel economy will suffer. At SST Auto our factory-trained technicians use factory diagnostic equipment to quickly identify the problem and make the necessary repairs, with the OEM factory parts, to get you back on the road.
Today’s spark plugs are more efficient and last longer than your father’s spark plugs. But, they still need replacement to maintain optimum performance and fuel efficiency. And sometimes a plug can fail prematurely. If you notice your car is running rough, or fuel economy has dropped over time, or acceleration is not up-to-speed, your spark plugs might be the problem. At SST Auto our factory-trained technicians use factory diagnostic equipment to quickly identify the problem and make the necessary repairs, with the OEM factory parts, to get you back on the road.
Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car’s “Check Engine” light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At SST Auto, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at (203) 730-0311 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.
Although diesel engines don’t require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Our factory trained technicians are certified in diesel engine maintenance and repair.
Exhaust System Maintenance & Replacement
Exhaust systems typically consist of a muffler, a catalytic converter, an exhaust manifold, and possibly a turbocharger. These parts work together to help your European vehicle run at peak efficiency and optimal performance.
The muffler decreases noise caused by exhaust release, while also balancing performance and power output. The catalytic converter reduces exhaust emissions and converts unburnt feul to water and CO2.
The exhaust manifold collects the exhaust fumes from multiple cylinders and filters it through a single pipe. This is another component of the exhaust system that affects system efficiency. Turbochargers are usually optional gas compressors that increase engine-entering air density to create additional power for your European automobile.
Noticeable symptoms of exhaust issues, and possibly engine issues, is black smoke emitted from the tailpipe, louder exhaust sounds, and/or rattling. If you notice any symptoms of a suspected exhaust system issue, schedule an exhaust system check-up at SST Auto today (203) 730-0311.
