Computerized Diagnostic Services
Got a Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light that’s illuminated? Ignoring the light could be a costly mistake. The light indicates that there is a malfunction in the vehicle’s operation, be it a computer or a mechanical issue. At minimum, it can lower gas mileage. On the other side, it can cause severe engine damage! Don’t let it go, come see us for a no charge computer scan (a $125.00 value). We can then advise you a proper course of action to avoid more serious repairs. It only takes 10-15 minutes in most cases. Just come by and we’ll fit you in! We offer full electrical and mechanical diagnostic services.
 

Heating and Cooling System Services

The engine’s heating and cooling system is comprised of many different components that all must work correctly for the system to cool the engine properly. Any one component that fails can affect the entire system, consequently causing an engine overheating condition. Cooling system failure is the number one reason for automotive breakdown on our nation's highways. Unlike a flat tire, you can't stop and put on a spare. A failure of the engine cooling system will mean a trip to the repair shop behind a tow truck, which is why it is important that you have periodic inspections and regular maintenance of the cooling system. We offer the largest selection of new radiators in Whatcom County.
 

The car air conditioning system works with the heating and ventilation system to provide the driver with cool, dry air for comfort. Modern technology requires that only certified individuals check out your AC system for the proper operation. Martin's Automotive can check your air conditioning system with properly trained mechanics and up-to-date tools. We will inspect for loose belts, leaks, AC operation, and if needed, recharge your system.
 

Transmission Services
When you experience a transmission problem, the first thing that comes to mind is cost. Everyone knows that transmissions are costly to rebuild or replace, but what you may not know is that a transmission issue might be relatively inexpensive to repair. Today’s cars and trucks have transmissions controlled by computers. An electronic malfunction may look and seem to be a transmission failure when in reality it is a failed sensor or other electronic component. We have some of the most highly trained technicians in the state, and along with our state of the art diagnostic equipment, we can pinpoint your transmission problem in no time.

● Is your car pulling to one side of the road or the other?

Braking System Services

Today, virtually all cars come with ABS as standard equipment or as an option. The typical ABS system includes wheel-speed sensors, a hydraulic control unit, and an electronic control unit. When turning the ignition switch to the on position, the amber BRAKE, ANTILOCK or ABS light on the instrument panel should glow momentarily, and then turn off. If the light stays on or flashes, or comes on while driving, it indicates a fault in the ABS system. Have your vehicle’s ABS system inspected immediately by one of our professionally trained technician to determine the source of the problem.
