Lady with car hood up - steam rising

Sometimes it is EASY to see if your car or truck needs to come into our shop for professional repairs! 
1.  You see steam rising from the engine!
2.  The Check Engine Light is on!
3.  The engine starts, but there is an odor that is not right.
4.  You hear grinding or thumping noises.

Customer Review
It's rare to find a company with the integrity of Dale & Ron's these days. As a parent of a KU student that lives far away, I found myself in tough spot with daughter's car that threw a rod bearing but I wasn't there to help with a significant project, needless to say. The dealership quoted astronomical rates to replace the engine, which I could not afford. After calling around, I found Dale & Ron's to help me through my challenges. Rick was amazing. He helped me weigh my options, found a motor, educated me on the process, quoted a project and was setup to do a motor swap. When I went to tow the car from the dealership to Dale & Ron's they matched Dale & Ron's price and followed Dale & Ron's lead on the solution. I felt terrible about flaking on Dale & Ron's after they helped me so much. I offered to compensate them for their time at their hourly rate ... they refused. They wouldn't take my money and simply said "send your daughter to us for future maintenance", which I will most assuredly do. The team at Dale & Ron's is all about doing the right thing - rare in this world.
