technician

A good technician will give your car a quick inspection whenever you have maintenance performed. Fluid levels, tire condition, dashboard lights, and a variety of other items typically are briefly explored whenever you bring your vehicle in for maintenance. At Martin's Garage in Shippensburg, we're good at noticing things that need repair, but the fact of the matter is that only you know your car. You know when your car feels off when its been serviced last (or that it hasn't been serviced at all,) and have at least some vague idea of what’s going on with your vehicle day to day. Here are some questions you can ask us next time you come by the shop;

headlights

Your car’s radio and headlights, plus a slew of other important functions, are powered by an electrical current generated by your vehicle’s engine. A vital part of generating electricity is having a place to store it while it’s not being used. This is where your car battery comes into play. The battery of your vehicle holds electrical energy while the car is off in order to help the engine turn over and create a spark to start internal combustion. Without a working battery, your car will not be able to start. If you allow our team here at Martin's Garage to perform proper maintenance, an average car battery can start your car reliably for roughly four years.

Your Chevy, Ram or Ford pickup is equipped with an Electronic Control Unit, or ECU, that acts as the “brain” of your diesel truck. At Martin's Garage in Shippensburg, PA, we have the technology, technicians, and equipment necessary to reprogram and service even the most sophisticated electronic controls.

mechanic working on a vehicle

At Martin's Garage in Shippensburg, PA, we know the key to making your vehicle last; good maintenance. An overwhelming percentage of the problems we see, especially the really catastrophic ones, are a result of poor maintenance. While properly maintaining a vehicle can seem like a bit of a hassle, it is absolutely worth the payoff. Good maintenance is the only difference between a car that lasts 80,000 miles and a car that lasts 400,000 miles. Preventative maintenance and repair when a problem occurs are your two concerns, and both will keep your car on the road far longer if observed properly.

In the automotive business, the customer is just as important as the vehicle and the customer service is just as important as the auto repair. That is why at Martin's Garage, we strive to provide only the best customer service to our clients.

fleet of trucks

At Martin's Garage in Shippensburg, PA, we service all kinds of trucks, young and old. If you’re in the market for a new or new-to-you truck, here’s some advice we encourage you to consider.

car braking

Judging by the number of near-rear-endings we witness on our morning commutes, the typical attitude toward brake maintenance appears to be, “Brakes: Don’t let them stop you!” This puzzles us because monitoring your braking system’s health is one of the most straightforward aspects of car ownership. You do have to know what to look for, though, or rather, what to listen and feel for. So let us, uh, break it down for you. Here are the top three signs that your brakes need fixing.

dash warning lights

Whether you drive a Powerstroke, Cummins, or Duramax diesel, your truck is a complex piece of equipment. Emissions systems, fuel systems, and systems you’ve probably never heard of all work together to keep your truck going strong. Sometimes, however, a warning light will pop up on your dash, and leave you wondering what’s going on. From ABS to Check Engine Lights, Martin's Garage in Shippensburg, PA has you covered.
