Are your headlight  out ??   First things First,  lets check your lights!  Remember to check high and low headlight beams. Have the Lights Changed when you find they are out.

Next, you may have decided you would like your lights to be brighter.  If so there are three ways to get this done.

LED Lights are the newest lights and work very well.  We can install these in most cars and feel you would be very happy with them.  There are many types so stop and by and lets talk.


Headlight Restoration: We offer restoration for your old dingy headlights, turn that poor dim yellow light into the clear white light it was and should be! Our 4 stage buffing and polishing procedure restores almost any faded, fogged, weathered light housing back to it's origanal clearity.

Go From >>>this     TO This>>>> 

- If your looking for an even better, brighter, whiter light for driving on those dark rainy nights, we also offer what is called  H.I.D. headlight conversions.
 H.I.D.  ( High Intensity Discharge ) lights are those that you see on newer vehicles driving down the road ( Porsche, Volvo, Audi, VW, etc ). They offer a much brighter, whiter light than that of standard halogens. We have bulbs available for almost any car, we can even put  H.I.D.s  in older cars with incondecent lights with an addition of an H4 conversion to except the  H.I.D.'s Stop by or give us a call for prices and options!

Happy New Years

  Happy 2018

C.A.R.S. = Complete Auto Repair Service

We would like to wish you and yours a wonderful 2018 full of Peace, Health, and Happiness.  We hope you get to spend the end of 2017 with friends and family and enjoy them all year through in 2018.
“What we have once enjoyed, we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes part of us.” Helen Keller

We  are now headed into the New Year  of 2018, should you need any help with your vehicle Please get in touch.  (360) 922-0553

 This is a list of some things you should check and get fixed so you will be ready when you want to pack up and head for the snow!


Batteries are much weaker in cold weather, so keep your vehicle’s battery fully charged.

Brakes  should be checked and serviced if necessary. Even braking on all four wheels will lessen the chance of skids on slippery roads.

•Make sure your vehicle’s exhaust system has no leaks. Carbon monoxide is a silent killer and can accumulate quickly in closed vehicles.

•Make sure your wiper blades are in good condition. Keep the windshield washer reservoir filled with antifreeze solvent.

•Check the radiator, heater core and all hoses that carry anti-freeze solution to see that they are in good condition and free of leaks. Also check to see that the solution is good to at least 40 below zero.

•Make sure you have winter weight oil (usually 5W-30) in the engine.

Tires should have M+S or All Season tread and be in good condition.

•Emergencies can happen when you least expect them, so be sure to carry a winter survival kit in your vehicle.

Happy 2018 !!!!

See you in 2018

Muffler & Exhaust Bellingham WA.

Posted by D on December 1, 2017 at 10:05 PM

Mufflers & Exhaust  System

What is it?

 Your car’s exhaust system has come a long way from the old days of exhaust pipes and mufflers.

Today, the exhaust system is safety and emissions control rolled into one.

 Have your car’s exhaust system inspected regularly and check it immediately if you suspect any problems.

What does it do? The exhaust system routes dangerous exhaust gas from the engine out and away from the car to keep from affecting the occupants.
Next, the exhaust system reduces exhaust noise from the engine. The catalytic converter reduces the level of harmful pollutants in the exhaust. The oxygen sensors mounted in the exhaust system monitor the level of oxygen in the exhaust gases to maintain efficient engine operation and to monitor the converter’s operation.

Typical Wear and Tear Maintain a safe car with regular exhaust system checks.

 Factors that affect replacement requirements include: •Driving habits (short trips take their toll on exhaust system life) •Road conditions (salt, road spray, bumps) •Vehicle type •Age of exhaust system parts Symptoms •Loud noise •Rattling noise when starting, accelerating or braking •Drowsiness while driving •Rotten eggs smell.

That being said:  Stay safe on the roads and when you need help Call

Preventative CARS Care Bellingham WA.

Posted by D on October 15, 2017 at 8:10 PM

CARS Preventative  Care
What's in a service check up?


If you're interested in extending the life of your vehicle as much as possible and keeping more cash in your pocket, it's wise to perform preventative care items such as oil changes and tune-ups. But what exactly is a tune-up these days?

During  tune-up = Automobiles have become increasingly dependent on computers to run most or all of their systems such as ignition, engine performance, fuel injection and electronics.  A reputable mechanic will want to scan the computer for any codes that may indicate an error and check the ignition system. 

 Present-day tune-up at CARS should include an inspection of the vehicle’s spark plugs to see if they need to be replaced. The same goes for the spark plug wires. The vehicle’s air filter and fuel filter should also be inspected and replaced if necessary. 

For most vehicles, these preventative care tune-ups and inspections should start at about 60,000 miles and then be checked again at 30,000- 50,000 mile intervals thereafter. ( depends on newness of car and type of driving, ask you Mechanic ) This is a big change from older, more mechanically driven cars that required technicians to change the points and distributor cap as well as adjusting the carburetor, ignition point settings and timing every few thousand miles. The reliance on computers to monitor these automotive systems has now required technicians to be proficient computer software and scanning machines in order to diagnose issues. 

Something to be aware of also, is that if you are experiencing a performance problem like chugging or slow acceleration, it may not be related to a need for a tune-up, but a symptom of the emissions system, such as a blocked catalytic convertor, or the fuel delivery system, such as a clogged fuel injector. Take it to CARS = Complete Auto Repair Service and describe the problem so they can diagnose what the car needs. 

One final note for drivers, is to be aware that when you visit CARS  repair shop and request a tune-up, this does not necessarily include an oil change or other fluid changes.  Oil changes should be done more frequently than tune-ups,  but that schedule is being extended as well to about every 5,000 to 7,500 miles ( check your manual ) - depending on the vehicle, engine size and driving - due to cleaner running engines and synthetically blended oils. Keep track of your mileage and consult with you mechanic, don't necessarily rely on the change oil light on the dash.

In any case, be sure to get an estimate for all work that is suggested and that you understand why the technician is recommending it. Working together with your trusted Mechanic, you can be reassured that you are safe on the road and keep your car running trouble-free!
