Whether we’re talking about your engine, transmission, differential, suspension, or otherwise, correct specifications are necessary to keep your car, truck, or SUV reliable, drivable, and running smoothly. From our team here at Dirk’s Auto Clinic in Crystal River, FL, here’s what you need to know.

vehicle drive axle

Do you hear a funny clicking sound when you turn the wheels of your vehicle? It could be your car or truck's CV or Drive Axle, and it may be in need of repair. Safety is the number one priority for our customers here at Dirk’s Auto Clinic, and it is our goal to keep your vehicle running smoothly. Driving around with a damaged CV Joint or Drive Axle problem can be extremely dangerous. The axle is a structural component that bears the weight of the vehicle, any cargo, and the acceleration forces between you and the ground. It is so important to have your vehicle inspected regularly by a trained automotive repair professional here at Dirk’s Auto Clinic to ensure its safety.

Your truck was built for work. Whether you drive a Ram, Chevy, or Ford diesel pickup, your truck was designed to endure, day in and day out. Nonetheless, eventually, there will come a time where your engine needs major repair - and you’ll have to make a decision on what to do next. At Dirk’s Auto Clinic in Crystal River, FL, we’re here to help.

truck

The engine and transmission in your Chevrolet, Dodge, or Ford diesel pickup is the heart and soul of your truck. At Dirk’s Auto Clinic in Crystal River, we repair, rebuild, and replace engines or transmissions with quality parts and builds, keeping your truck on the road for years to come.

The exhaust on your truck is an important series of components, that work together to ensure smooth, reliable operation. At Dirk’s Auto Clinic in Crystal River, we also know that exhaust systems are especially susceptible to damage and rust; pipes, mufflers, and other parts are exposed to hazards on the road, and to the environment. This situation, combined with caustic emissions and extreme heat, creates a perfect opportunity for problems to arise.
