Auto Repair Service Testimonial - Ali
Customer Reviews

I have been coming to K & M for years and I can’t say enough good things about them. Jackie and Sue (in the front) are the best: so knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly. Most importantly, they are honest. They tell me when I can save money by doing things myself or if I can put off a repair while I save money. Sometimes I am lucky and they even have a free loaner car I use while my repairs are being done.

Countless times they have extended themselves above and beyond what most businesses do. If they have the option to help they do and my bill has been less than expected on more than one occasion.

As a person who doesn’t have an extensive knowledge of car mechanics, I value having a mechanic shop that I trust and believe. I’ll always take my cars to them! I’m a customer for life.

K & M Auto Service is a freaking life saver (ok a little over dramatic but they are awesome)!! So my car broke down yesterday, by the grace of God right as I was pulling into my parking spot at work. It sputtered out stalled and died 🙁 Some of you know my car has had some issues this past year, but a super awesome friend of mine has always been able to figure it out. This time there were no obvious things wrong, so I had to have it towed to a shop. I have never used K & M before but heard good things and they are really close to my house. So they diagnosed (EGR stuck open, tail light and oil needed changed) they called me and stayed after hours to help me with financing. And here it is noon today and everything is done and ready to go and I didn’t get it to them until late yesterday afternoon! Great experience in a sucky situation. Long story short if you need any sort of auto repair or oil change etc. Go To kandmautoservice.com And please show them some love and like their Facebook page too 🙂 facebook.com/kandmauto

First time trying this shop out, I went in for an oil change and a tune-up as well a diagnosis for a stalling issue I was experiencing in my Mazda 3. The prices were reasonable and the staff I interacted with were friendly and not pushy at all about extra repairs.

They fixed the stalling issue, but a few hours after I picked my car up, my check engine light came on. Here’s where K&M set themselves apart. They determined the check engine light was caused by my catalytic converter and replaced it for free. No questions asked.

Now my car is running great and I will be taking it to them again whenever I need more work.

Auto Maintenance FAQs

How often should I get my oil changed?
For a long time and sometimes still today, standard practice at many lube shops is to suggest oil changes every three months or 3,000 miles. In order to know when the best time to get your oil changed is, check the owner’s manual of your specific model for manufacturer-recommended intervals.
How do I inspect my cars disc brakes?
The brakes are arguably the most important safety device on your vehicle, therefore it is important for you to inspect them regularly and to look for any obvious signs of damage or wear and tear. Spotting a brake problem before it gets out of hand can save your life and a lot of your hard-earned money too! At K & M Auto Service, we deliver the best there is to offer. We have written this helpful guide to teach you how you can inspect your own brakes. It is easier to inspect the brakes on some cars than it is for others. It depends on whether or not you have to remove the wheel or not to do so. Most cars have spaces in the wheels that allow you to see the brake pads and rotors. You should start by inspecting your brake rotors. The brake rotor is the surface that the brake pads clamp down on in order to stop the wheel. It should be shiny and fairly even all over. If you see any rough patches or pronounced grooves in the brake rotors, then it is probably time to replace them. The next step is to inspect your brake pads, which is the material that actually clamps down on the brake rotors. The pads are located on the upper part of the brake rotor. They are designed to wear down over time, but if they are thinner than about a quarter of an inch you should have them replaced. If you don’t replace worn-down brake pads, it can result in damage to more crucial brake parts. The metal backing on your brake pads will begin making contact with the metal brake rotors, which can cause extensive damage to both. It will also make it harder to bring your vehicle to a stop. Brake Repair Portland If you believe that your brakes are in need of repair, at K&M we have a team of highly trained and experienced experts who can provide the best service we have to offer.
How do I check my oil?
Motor oil is very important to your vehicle’s overall ability to function as it provides the lubrication for all of the different moving parts of the engine. Without motor oil, these engine parts would fall apart, rust and break down much faster. At K&M we take pride in providing the best we have to offer, and we can change your oil for you quickly and easily. Below, we have compiled a guide to help you check your oil to see if it needs to be changed. Checking your oil is a quick and easy procedure, and should be performed when your engine is cold or hasn’t been running for at least 10 minutes. The first thing you need to do is pop the hood and look for the oil dipstick. If your vehicle has an in-line engine (rear-wheel drive) then the oil dipstick should be somewhere near the middle of your engine. If your car has a transverse engine (front-wheel drive) the dipstick will be located somewhere in the front left side of your engine. Once you have located the dipstick, take it out of the tube and clean it with a rag. Make sure there is no debris on the stick from the rag, and insert it back into the tube. If the dipstick gets stuck on the way down, try turning it; the stick is curved to fit in the pipe a certain way. When you pull the dipstick out this time, check to see how much oil you have. To check the condition of your oil, rub a tiny bit between your thumb and index finger. If it seems dirty or smells like gas, it is probably time to have it changed. If you need to add oil, don’t put it in the dipstick pipe. There is usually a cap on the largest part of your engine that you can screw off. This is where you put the oil. Portland Auto Repair If your oil needs changing, you can bring your vehicle to K&M and we will gladly take care of it for you.
How do I change my windshield wipers?
Windshield wipers are commonly neglected on cars, even though they are one of the easiest parts to fix and replace. Wiper blades take a beating, especially in Portland during the winter months. When your windshield wipers become torn, cracked or dinged up in some other way, you should look into having them replaced. At K&M, we are proud to provide customers with the most comprehensive car tune up Portland can offer. Below we have compiled a few tips to help you remove and replace your old, worn-out wiper blades. The first step in replacing your wiper blades is to remove them from the metal wiping arm. There is usually a tab or similar feature that makes taking off old blades very straightforward and easy. Just pull the entire wiper arm away from the windshield of your car until it locks in the upright position. Then all you have to do is push the tab and slide the blades right off. Be careful when the rubber blades are removed; the metal arms are spring loaded and can scratch or crack your windshield if you aren’t careful. Once you have the old wipers off, you can work on installing the new ones. Line up the new wiper blades with the metal wiper arms until you are confident that the placement is correct. Usually there is some kind of plastic hook on the wiper that you have to “click” into place on the wiper arm. Make sure the wiper blade is secure on the wiper arm otherwise it could fly off during a downpour. Simply repeat this process for the other wiper blade, and you are good to go! You should immediately notice a dramatic increase in the effectiveness of your new wiper blades. Portland Auto Repair Take your car down to K & M Auto, and we will perform a full tune up on your vehicle to make sure everything is where it should be, including your windshield wipers.
