Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At The Gear Guy, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 830-885-4360 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.
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 830-885-4360 or visit The Gear Guy 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 The Gear Guy 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 The Gear Guy in Spring Branch, TX 78070. 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 The Gear Guy in Spring Branch, TX 78070.
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 The Gear Guy, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 830-885-4360 or visit The Gear Guy today.
Being able to look the guy in the eye who is actually going to do the work on your vehicle is invaluable. No BS, just honest opinions, options, and service.
Can't say enough good about these folks. Class Acts!
I am delighted with the service I received from Gear Guy. I am a 74-year-old disabled lady with no outside help. I made an appointment for a diagnosis for a starter problem with my car. I was told that they would charge a $50 fee for diagnosing the problem and was particularly pleased that I they would try to repair it while I waited. I arrived at 8:30 a.m. and drove out at 11:30 a.m. They are kind, honest and reasonable, and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone with automobile issues.

Amazing owners, friendly faces. You get high quality work for decent prices. Never had a problem. Took my truck, which had a lot of different problems, and fixed her up good after I messed up some wiring. Let me know every step of the process and what was suggested. Highly suggest this local business!
