We don’t require appointments but we do recommend them to ensure your vehicle will be repaired in a more timely fashion. We try to complete most repairs the same day. If we suspect the vehicle will take longer than one day, we will advise you as early as possible to transportation arrangements can be made in advance.

We have an After Hours Drop Box. Take an envelope and fill it out completely. Be sure to include a phone number(s) that is best for our service department to reach you at. Place your keys in the envelope and seal it. Place envelope in the drop box.

6. What does it mean if my “check engine” or “service engine soon” light comes on?
There are many sensors and computerized components that manage your vehicle’s engine performance and emissions. When one of these fails, the “check engine” light is illuminated. Although your car may seem to run fine, it is important to have the issue addressed to prevent long-term problems.
7. What should I do if my car starts to overheat?
This is a very serious problem – if your car overheats for too long, you can damage your engine. As soon as possible, find a safe place to pull off the road and shut the engine off! Do not attempt to check the fluid level in the radiator; the hot fluid can cause severe burns. The best thing to do is have your car towed to Marty’s Auto Works for diagnosis.
8. When should I have my oil and filter changed on my car?
Manufacturers generally recommend that you replace your car’s oil and oil filter every 3,000 miles or every 3 months; whichever comes first.
9. Do you offer shuttle services or rental cars?
We offer free shuttle service to help you get where you need to be while your vehicle is being repaired and pick you up when it’s done. We can also help you arrange a rental car when needed.
