Engine Trouble Codes:Each newer make of car, whether it is a domestic or import vehicle, has engine trouble codes. Our mechanics are qualified to read these codes and then make repairs as needed. We start with a diagnostic and then explain to you what the problem is. We do this in plain English so that you can fully understand what is going on with your car or truck.

Along with that data we provide you with options and estimates for both costs and time. We do this so that you can make an informed and comprehensive decision about how to handle your vehicles engine repair.

Our goal is always to provide excellent customer service in addition to outstanding automotive repair services. 

Engine Warning Light: Modern engines are full of sensors. When an engine warning light comes on, it can be for any number of reasons. Many times it is due to a sensor. Either the sensor has read something that has caused the warning or the sensor itself has become damaged.

Sometimes it trips for something as benign as a loose-fitting gas cap, and at other times it can be something serious. If you see the engine warning light come on check the fluid levels for the engine and transmission and then bring your car by the shop for diagnostic service.

It is important to know why the warning light has come on and whether or not the problem is serious. It is much cheaper to maintain the vehicle then it is to replace the engine. 

If you have questions about automotive repair or services, please call us. Our professional crew is happy to answer all of your auto care questions. Contact us today!

We are an engine repair shop and as such we believe in preventative maintenance. Many expensive repairs can be prevented or prolonged when preventative maintenance programs are in place. This means oil changes, tune-ups and other engine adjustments as needed.

Need to have your radiator and cooling system inspected?

We provide top-quality auto service to the fine folks of Hastings, Minnesota and the surrounding communities of Cottage Grove, Inver Grove Heights, Eagan, Rosemount, Vermillion, Hampton and more. We are a family-owned business providing automotive repair services since 1995.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our customer service. We have deep ties to this community and believe in making long term positive relationships with each customer that brings their car to our shop. That is how we have grown our business over the last two decades. 

Radiators and Cooling Systems:

Before the dog days of summer hit, it is a good idea to have your cooling system flushed and new coolant put into your cooling system. Part of your cooling systems routine maintenance should be to pressure test your radiator. Many times problems with your cooling system can be attributed to faulty radiator cap. Hoses can also be a weak link when the summers heat drives up temperatures. It is much less expensive to replace hoses that are questionable than it is to suffer a breakdown while en route and have to be towed back to a repair shop. 

Does Your Radiator Need Replacement?

Car Temperature: The temperature of your gauge should behave fairly normal. If it starts to rise higher than normal (or fall) then it is likely you have a cooling system problem. Sometimes that can be as simple as having low coolant levels or you may need a new thermostat. 

You Can See Steam: Pin-sized holes in a hose can cause steam to be seen, especially at stop lights. If you see steam, bring your car in now as your car is running out of water. 

You Have to Keep Adding Water/Coolant: If you have to keep topping off the water/coolant in your reservoir then you have a leak somewhere. Sometimes that is just a faulty radiator cap. Other reasons may be that there is a hole in your radiator. 

Your Car Hisses: When your car makes hissing noise you hear steam escaping. This is a sure sign that your car needs a radiator repair or a hose replaced.

Tires are important!

They provide the traction that keeps your car on the road. With newer cars, the electronic suspension components depend on the vehicles tires being in good shape in order to work.

Backfire and pinging can lead to expensive damage to your car's engine. Our exhaust muffler shop is qualified to inspect, diagnose, repair or replace all of the components of your exhaust system.

Our mechanics are ASE certified to provide factory grade service to all makes and models of cars and trucks. The work that we do is covered with a nationwide warranty through the Certified Auto Repair Warranty Program. 

Shocks and Suspension Service:

Shocks and struts are integral parts of your suspension system and add to ride comfort. Additionally they play a role in many of the safety systems that are designed for your car.

Safety systems like Electronic Traction Control and Brake-Force Distribution are very common on newer cars and trucks. These systems work in conjunction with your vehicle's suspension system to keep you safer during changing road conditions and emergency stopping situations. Struts and shocks do more than just cushion your car's ride.

They provide tension that allows other suspension components to function. They bolster the weight of your car to keep it suspended. They allow your tires to find traction that would be otherwise awkward if the weight of your car was not equally distributed to all four tires. They help to avoid damage to your car when you drive over larger bumps that can cause the wheels or tires to make contact with the fenders. 

Suspension service should be part of routine maintenance. This includes lubricating and inspection of the entire system, especially for older cars. Newer cars have complex suspension systems that our mechanics are qualified to service and replace as needed. 

AA Auto Tech is deeply committed to the community that we serve. Since 1995, we have worked to build long-term positive relationships with every customer that has brought their car to our shop. We value customer service and customer experience. We offer honest transactions.

We will diagnose your car's problems and then explain our findings to you in plain English. We want you to understand what is wrong with your car and what your options are to fix those problems.

AA Auto Tech provides air conditioning and heating system service and repair as part of our comprehensive auto service.

We offer a high level of customer service. We believe in building a lifelong, positive relationship with every customer that brings their car into our shop. We have a deep and committed relationship with the community that we serve. Our mechanics are ASE certified so that they are qualified to provide the best care possible for your car. All of the repairs are covered with a nationwide warranty through the Certified Auto Repair Warranty Program. We offer top quality service for all makes and models of cars and trucks. 

Air Conditioning and Heating System Repair:

Spring is the perfect time to recharge the air conditioner in your car. If, during the winter, your car's heater was not producing heat or seemed to produce less heat than normal, then have your heating system checked out too.

Winter is hard on car air conditioners, belts, and refrigerant. Part of spring maintenance for your car should include inspection of belts, hoses, and air conditioning recharging. Sometimes your car's AC works but it does not seem to provide enough cold air. That is a sign that your refrigerant needs to be recharged. 

Air Conditioning Recharge: 

We perform professional AC recharges and remove the old coolant from your AC system. "Off the shelf" AC recharge kits will simply add more coolant to your system and can cause damage from over pressurization. AA Auto Tech will perform environmentally safe AC recharges on your car's AC system that will allow you to feel very cold air on hot summer days.

Air Conditioning Replacement:

The air conditioner on your car is made up of a compressor, condenser, receiver drier or accumulator, evaporator, and an orifice tube. Any one of these pieces of your system can fail if not properly maintained. Signs and symptoms that your AC needs to be repaired or replaced are:

•Leaking. If you inspect your AC unit and see that it looks corroded or that there is fresh liquid around joints, seams, or ports, your system is leaking. 

•Fins and tubes are damaged. Air must flow through the system so if the fins are clogged, broken, or corroded then your system needs to be repaired or replaced.

•It makes noise or does not produce cold air. The AC unit on your car should not make noise. If it is clanking, growling, howling, whistling or producing a high pitched squeal, your car probably needs its air conditioner replaced. 

To schedule a diagnostic of AC problems, just call us or bring your car by our shop. We are happy to answer all of your car related questions.
