CV Joint Repair
Cv Joint Repair in Tallahassee, FL
CV joints are an essential component of a vehicles drivetrain. They allow power to be transferred to the drive wheels from the transmission. Not only do they provide power to the wheels, but their unique design allows them to accommodate for the up and down motion from the suspension; this is all done without backlash. At Clay's Automotive Service, Inc we recognize the importance of constant-velocity joints and can work with you to repair them if necessary.
Maintenance & Repair
Generally speaking, CV joints can last a very long time if their boot covers do not crack. They do not require regular maintenance, however, it is important to keep in mind that they should be inspected regularly for damage. If caught early, it is likely that the boot covers will be the only component needing to be replaced. If the damage is not caught early, you may end up needing to replace the entire joint and drive shaft.
Signs of CV joint damage include:
- Visible cracks in the rubber or plastic boot, usually accompanied by a grease leak
- A clicking or popping noise that occurs when you turn
- A clunking noise when shifting
- If badly-worn, the vehicle may even be completely disabled
If you believe you may have an issue with your CV joints and would like a professional opinion, then Clay's Automotive Service, Inc is here to help. Call today to make an appointment.
Clay Ferguson is the only competent and honest mechanic that I have ever met in Tallahassee. I've met plenty of incompetent honest mechanics. I've met plenty of incompetent dishonest mechanics. I've never met a competent dishonest one. Clay is a rare breed. He's the best. The only one I can recommend. If he can't answer the phone, it is because he's busy working...
Great service today. His son I guess had a great sense of humor while I picked up my boss's limo!
Saved me $200 on redoing my exhaust compared to the first estimate I got at another mechanic in town.
Dropped my truck off today for an AC Compressor replacement. I'll give a report after I pick up my truck tomorrow.
I've been taking trucks and cars to Clay's Automotive for over 20 years. He is truly a master mechanic and can diagnose and repair electrical, air conditioning, diesel, and other difficult problems that most mechanics can't begin to fix. He has always been up front, honest and fair with me and other family members. I have a relative from Atlanta that brings her car to Clay for anything more than an oil change. Clay is a real automotive professional!!!
Clay was easy to deal with and very understanding. With his help I was able to get my vehicle towed to him and looked at without having to miss work. He was honest, and informed me about the car's issues quickly and the diagnostic fee was under 50 bucks, very fair considering how thorough Clay was. I'd definately bring my vehicle to him again.
Clay saved us on our vacation!!!! We were RVing through the Panhandle near Marianna, FL. We began to have engine troubles, seeming to lose power. We googled Diesel Mechanics in the area and called a couple of places with little help, BUT THEN WE FOUND CLAY'S! When we called him, he was so courteous, so helpful that it was amazing. We found he was in Tallahassee, and we were in Lynn Haven, way too far apart. But knowing he was NOT going to get our business didn't matter, he took time to hear our problem and give us what he thought was a proper diagnosis. And guess what...HE WAS RIGHT!!! We limped our truck, barely making it, to an Auto Parts Store, and bought the part he suggested. Being my husband is quite handy, we got it installed, and thank CLAY we were on our way. Not only was it AMAZING that he could diagnose our problem over the phone, but he took extra time to help us and explain it, knowing we could not drive to his garage and pay him for services. We are from Orlando, and this type of service is hard to find there. We hope you will take your problems to Clays and give him the business he deserves, for being and great mechanic and great person!!!! Without him we could have become stranded, and certainly would have paid soooo much more at a garage to have them look for a problem and then fix it. I would even drive from Orlando to Tallahassee to let him service our truck!!! That's how much this meant to us! This is an amazing man we owe many thanks to!!! Much appreciation to you sir!
