Our assessment of the SAF-T Auto Center in Wallingford revealed an excellent technician and service adviser team. Two of the three have been working together for 14 years and all are ASE certified! Their recent addition of an apprentice, ready to learn from this experienced duo, shows a noteworthy commitment to the long term stability of this shop. We found they have the tooling and specialized diagnostic equipment we would expect to find at one of our Certified shops. Convenience is also a priority of this shop. They offer a local shuttle service, or should you decide to wait while your vehicle is being serviced, WiFi is available in their comfortable waiting area.

Questions Answered by SAF-T Auto Centers
i hear a squeak in the right front wheel....
Are you driving? Is it while applying the brakes, Is it happening while turning or while on bumpy roads? There are so many things that can create a squeaky noise. It is best to have a qualified automotive technician take a look. Good luck!
I need to know if my failing water pump co...
The failing water pump should not affect the lubrication system at all. The debris in the engine oil has to be coming from somewhere else in the engine but not from the cooling system.

I would look to see if you have a secondary ignition issue or possible a mechanical (compression) issue.

My cadillac has 65,000 miles and I need to...
By your manufacture's schedule the only thing that you needed to replace @ 60k miles was the air filter element and cabin air filter.
My car has 114,000 miles and runs great. ...
The Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) has a recommendation based laboratory and field testing that shows most power steering fluids degrade measurably by 50,000 miles. Therefore, the revised steering and suspension UICS suggests a one-time exchange of power steering fluid at 50,000 miles, so long as a service interval is not included in the manufacturer's maintenance schedule. In addition, a vehicle's power steering fluid should be exchanged whenever a system component-pump, hose, rack & pinion unit-is replaced.

Reset the system by the following procedure:

Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position with the odometer reading shown.
Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position while holding down the trip meter reset knob. Hold down the knob for at least 5 seconds.

The odometer indicates "000000" and the light goes off.

If the system fails to reset, the light will continue flashing.

Maintenance question
You have a timing chain, not a belt. Your timing chain does not have manufacture recommended maintenance.

You will need to have the ecm reflashed. However you do not have to go to a dealer, a well equipped independent repair shop will have a tool called a J2534 reflasher. When you do this you will also get any of the updates that where done to this vehicle by the manufacture. Your cost will be about $125 or so.
