You can count on the experts at Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air to help your diesel engine last a long time.
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 904-731-5065 or visit Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air 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 Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air 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 Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air in Jacksonville, FL 32257. 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 Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air in Jacksonville, FL 32257.
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 Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 904-731-5065 or visit Viking Auto Repair Electric & Air today.
Harry and Steve are great. One shop told me I needed a new condenser and they found it was just a pressure switch. Saved me $350! Good people.
Very friendly and helpful people here. Rebuilt an alternator for 1993 Grand Marquis for me 15 years for the best price. Today I called for another rebuild though they couldn't help me due to the limited supply of parts for my Mazda, I'm still a happy customer, thanks for help!
Fast service. Did not try to fix anything that wasn't broken. Told me what the issue was and fixed it. Pricing is good. Will return if services are needed again.
Harry (owner) is a very honest, reasonable and transparent owner- something you don't find with most local and nationwide shops. I highly recommend him!!
When the alternator on my Volvo needed to be replaced, Harry gave me the best price out of all of the shops I received quotes from (five shops total, the highest quote was over $300 more than I was charged here). Very happy.
Very professional local business, I just had my ac issue fixed at a very reasonable price and by very friendly and outgoing staff in a very expedient manner. I will definitely come to them for any future issues. Thanks!
Great mechanics. Very professional and knowledgeable and friendly. They have been able to work on my homemade trike motorcycle when no one else could. I can highly recommend them.
Excellent service and professional work.
Very personable and knowledgeable staff, especially Harry. I recommend them to everyone.
They did a great job in helping diagnose an ongoing issue with my car. Very helpful!
Very professional, friendly and courteous. They do excellent work at a fair price. I will recommend them to all I can.
I came in got a rate when I got the call back they told me it was gonna be 100 dollars cheaper than expected and the truck works great. They are there to take care of you not take your money.
Good Service. Good communication. Fair pricing. In and out same day. I would definitely recommend and will be a return customer.
This is the only place I trust to bring my car to for repairs or any maintenance. I highly recommend them for professional and honest service.
After exhausting all other options to find a another alternator for my home generator I went and saw Harry at Viking. Within hours he had a replacement and later that day it was installed. Before going to Viking I had given up hope. These guys came through and made the impossible a reality. Highly recommend them!!
Mike and Harry are awesome! Fuse kept blowing and no rear lights would work. Mike figured out the problem quickly and got the parts ordered ASAP, all for a fair price!
Super awesome shop. My first visit but certainly won't be my last. Did great work and did it quickly. I highly recommend Viking.
Left my car late on Sunday night because the dashboard warning lights had gone crazy and worst of all my power steering was not working. Viking called the next morning with the diagnosis, turns out it was the alternator, and the estimate. Repair was completed in a timely manner and I have my vehicle back. Thank you gentlemen for the great work!
I picked up my car today. Very clear explanations from Staff, regarding my repairs. The price was also reasonable for my oil pan assembly install. Mike, also informed me of additional detail regarding my vehicle... I will recommend anyone to seek Viking, before seeking Dealerships!
