Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:
You can count on the experts at Cottin's Automotive to help your diesel engine last a long time.
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 772-873-2414 or visit Cottin's Automotive today.
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Cottin's Automotive today.
Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Cottin's Automotive in Port St. Lucie, FL 34953. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.
Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Cottin's Automotive in Port St. Lucie, FL 34953.
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Cottin's Automotive, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 772-873-2414 or visit Cottin's Automotive today.
AAA recommended that I use them to fix my car, and I am glad they did. They did a great job, fixed it in a timely manner. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good honest mechanic.
Brian is an awesome mechanic he's not out to screw you over like most are. He's even work with me on time issues and came in the help me out even before his shop is even open.
Awesome people, awesome work. Thank you Brian and Pat!
I am so impressed with this family operated business. My car is an older model but it really has never run as well as now. The service is fast and precise, the customer is made aware of what is being done and what is recommended to be done. Pricing was fair. I am happy.
Great service. I went there my check engine light was on. Brian hooked up to the cars computer found the code. Opened the hood and found a disconnected vacuum line. He reconnected it. He told me he's not sure if that was the problem. Said to drive the car and see if the light comes back on. Honest service.
Cottin's Automotive is by far the BEST place around. They are always able to fix any problem my Tahoe has. I recommend them over anyone else!
Always a very professional job. Would not use anyone else.

Cottin's Automotive is the BEST! It was really easy to make an appointment, they are SO FRIENDLY, and the PRICE was MUCH LOWER than I expected! This was my first time there and I plan on using them again EVERY TIME my car has issues. I highly recommend them!
I can not say enough but Brian and his work and prices!! For you single woman, DO NOT BE AFRAID OF BEING OVERPRICED!

I tell everyone about him.
