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 American Tire and Car Care, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 775-786-8473 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Computer
Today, car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer's main function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors. The computer controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors so as to get you the best possible car performance. Failure of the car computer will greatly affect the things it controls. To get the most out of your car's computer, have it evaluated regularly for updates and proper operation. If it is already failing, have it repaired or replaced. To have your car's computer handled by experts, visit American Tire and Car Care in Reno, NV 89502 today.

Computer Reflashing
American Tire and Car Care has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Reno area. The primary reason to reflash a computer (which basically means updating or reinstalling its software) is that an update has been issued by the manufacturer. It's a very simple procedure, and there may be minor updates that the car hasn't had. The manufacturer may have tweaked the transmission-shifting algorithm or some other parameters that are not crucial but may bring slight improvements to drivability, mileage or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are coming out with automobile updates every day, there may be a reprogram available for your vehicle. Stop by American Tire and Car Care or call us at 775-786-8473 to schedule an appointment!

Drivability
Drivability is the degree of smoothness and steadiness of your car's acceleration. Most modern cars are fitted with on-board computers that continuously check the readings from various sensors. In case of drivability problems, you will receive a warning message on your car's dashboard. To have your car diagnosed for drivability issues, visit American Tire and Car Care in Reno, NV 89502 today. At American Tire and Car Care, we have the necessary tools, training, and technology to diagnose and address your car's drivability issues.

Engine Controls
Basically, an engine control system is an on-board computer in your car. Like all computers, the engine controls are composed of hardware and software. Automotive engine control systems are responsible for regulating exhaust emissions, and providing increased fuel economy. To get the best out of your car's incredibly powerful technology, make sure engine controls are working properly. To check if your car's engine controls are working properly, call American Tire and Car Care today.

  • Got excellent mechanic service, and I plan to go back again. My car was in and out very fast. I was glad to have my catalytic converter swapped. Thanks guys !!!
    -Michi Garibay

  • Top of the line auto care facility!! The owner was incredibly friendly and helpful from our very first interaction over the phone! Not only did he make me a great deal on a set of tires, but he was patient and understanding when I was an airhead. I was in Reno from across the state for a conference and decided to get tires installed while in town. The tires were installed just before my conference was set to begin. Top of the line customer service!! My husband and I will return for our next set of tires for sure. As a first impression of the Reno area, I was impressed! Thanks Mike and Kane!

  • During a road trip from Portland to Reno, we noticed the tire pressure warning light was on. We had just bought four new tires prior to this trip and wanted to check it out. When in Reno, Mike McGriff was great. He looked at our tires, found they were inflated way over the recommended PSI, took some air out and reassured us about continuing our journey. Thanks, Mike, you went out of your way to help us!!!!
    -John Stoffregen

  • Mike (the owner) and his team are absolutely AMAZING! Truly genuine guys. I took in my car with some details about what was going on, and they knew exactly what was wrong. Not to mention they had it fixed the very next day. I really trust Mike and his crew. They understood the work I wanted done and didn't push me into unnecessary fixes and parts. I will be telling all my friends about this shop and the great care I received! P.S. Mike's daughter works there in the front of the shop, and that really put me at ease. I felt like he treated me the way he would want her to be treated in a strange town.

  • I was just at American Tire and had a complete service check and oil change. They were very professional and courteous from the beginning. They were very honest and thorough in their work. The workers at the shop were also very helpful when I first arrived. I would recommend their services to anyone in Reno looking for great auto care and repair. Thanks!
