Do you you have engine belt issues?

How do you know if you have engine belt issues?

Is your vehicle making unusual squeaking noises while you’re driving?

 More often than not, drivers know when their belts require attention because their vehicle makes an unusual squeaking noise when driven.  These noises can sound like chirping or squeaking noises. These noises should always be addressed and you should give us a call at (480) 890-0409 so we can diagnose your vehicle and ensure your issue is in fact a belt issue. If it is our ASE Certified technicians will offer you repair or replacement recommendations and we will move forward with your approved repairs. As always we are happy to give you a ride within 20 miles of our shop by downtown Mesa, Arizona. 


If you have your vehicle serviced at Accurate Automotive we are happy to check your belts and hoses with your vehicle service. We take great pride in partnering with our customers and helping them maintain their vehicle’s longevity by offering honest, quality vehicle repair at a price that’s fair. We are a family-owned and operated shop and are proud of our 5-star Google Rating and our over 350 Reviews. 


Our motto is “Friends… serving friends” so for our friends and customers who are comfortable under their own hoods, we recommend checking your vehicle’s engine belts once a month. 


The best time to examine a vehicle’s belts is when the car or truck’s engine is cool before it has been running for a period of time.  Each of the vehicle’s belts can then be checked for cues that replacement is necessary.  When examining the belts, drivers should look for things such as cracking in the rubber, vehicle fluids that have accumulated on the belt itself, accumulation of rubber particles on the belt pulleys, and worn-out grooves on the underside of the belt.  Any of these signs are good indicators that the belts need replacing.  The tension should also be checked to ensure that the belts are neither too tight nor too loose.  Drivers who are not comfortable performing this inspection should have the technicians at Accurate Automotive do so for them.


It is unfortunate that so many drivers neglect to inspect their vehicle’s belts or have them inspected by a professional.  Overlooking this simple maintenance step can cost drivers dearly.  Accurate Automotive highly recommends that drivers incorporate belt and hose inspections into their vehicle maintenance program, mention it next time you call us to schedule your next vehicle service by calling:

What to expect after you drop off your vehicle


Often times taking care of our vehicle service and repair is new and we don’t know what to expect. In this article, we will be taking some of the mystery out of our service and helping you feel confident about making Accurate Automotive in Mesa, Arizona your full-service auto shop of choice. 


Our communication typically begins when you visit our website or call  (480) 890-0409 and schedule your vehicle service time drop-off. 


On your scheduled day and time, you will park your vehicle in the “Customer Drop Off” reserved space in the front of the shop. Come into the shop, give us your name, confirm your vehicle’s service or issue and give us your keys. For your convenience, we offer you a free ride within 20 miles, so there is no need to call an Uber, Lyft, or arrange for a ride. Our driver will drive you home while our automotive professional takes care of your vehicle. 


We begin our vehicle service by test-driving your vehicle. During this test drive we are looking for the issue you brought your vehicle in for and we are also performing our inspection. At Accurate Automotive we perform a complimentary multi-point inspection on every vehicle. We believe in offering the best service and because of this we trust you will make us your full-service auto repair shop of choice so we get to know your vehicle and give you honest and in-depth professional opinions. Our motto is “Friends… serving friends” since 1992. 


During the second part of our multi-point inspection, we check your vehicle’s engine fluids. Among the engine fluids, we check are: 

  • Engine Oil
  • Transmission Fluid
  • Coolant
  • Brake Fluid
  • Power Steering Fluid

Our Professional takes a photo of your vehicle’s dab-lube tray which is where your vehicle’s engine fluids are tested. This photo along with photos of your vehicle during our inspection are included in your vehicle’s file and printed in your inspection report.

We then move on to the filter-checking portion of the vehicle inspection. We check engine filters inside the engine cabin and include our findings in your report. 

Our technician finishes our Accurate Automotive multi-point vehicle inspection with our tire inspection portion. During this portion, we check the tire pressure and the thread. We notate these findings in our digital top-of-the-line program. 

Finally our auto professional reviews his findings, photos, and notes. They will make a professional recommendation and submit your file to the front office. 

Our front office staff will then call you and review our findings with you, make our professional recommendations, and move forward with the repairs you approve. 


Our certified technicians work hard to get you back on the road safely and quickly. When your vehicle is complete we can shuttle you to our shop at 441 S Robson in Mesa, Arizona 85210. You will receive a printout of your vehicle’s multi-point inspection with photos of your vehicle. Finally, you can pay for your repairs and drive home in your reliably repaired vehicle! 


We hope this article helped you feel comfortable in choosing Accurate Automotive as your quality vehicle repair shop today and in the future. You can see our video where we showcase this process on Youtube here:

Lee Weatherby’s 1- 2 – 3 – 4 of Vehicles

We understand that cars can seem complicated to many people. Therefore at Accurate Automotive, we do our best to simplify your vehicle for you. 


When you bring your vehicle into our full-service auto shop in Mesa, Arizona we will do an inspection on your vehicle. At Accurate Automotive we look for four primary things. 


1. Safety – Anything that is safety-related with your vehicle we want to address that. We want you to address that so we make sure you have all of the information you need to know. This information includes what is wrong with your car, truck, or van, and what safety implications come with that. If you come in and we find out your vehicle has a safety-related issue we will ask you to take care of it. This will protect you and those you love and care for and everyone else you share the road with. 

2. Pocket Book Safety – This category includes things for preventative safety and things that will help improve the longevity of your vehicle. These things will keep your vehicle running smoothly so you can save money in the long run. 

3. Creature Comforts – These are the items we often take for granted and we find our customers are sometimes really frustrated with them. They include air conditioning and heating, power windows, seat warmers or coolers, cruise control, and such comforts in our vehicles. Although we understand they are important to you they are not our top priorities. This is because we know if there was an emergency and you need to get from point A to point B you could do so without those things. 

4. Keep an eye on it – People have warts, and cars have “warts” as well. There are things on the car that are just not perfect. If I would not fix them on my own car I would not suggest you fix them on yours. This goes along with our “Friends… serving friends” motto to treat you with care and respect. So we keep an eye on it. 

Those are Lee Weatherby’s 1-2-3-4 that we look for in a vehicle at Accurate Automotive. 


We appreciate your support over the years! If you are new to Arizona or are just in need of a vehicle repair shop we want to help. Accurate Automotive offers honest, quality vehicle repair at a price that’s fair. We have been in Mesa, Arizona since 1992 and are happy to offer you a free ride home while we diagnose and repair your vehicle. 


Thank you for taking the time to read our blog. We hope we helped take some of the mystery out of vehicle service and repair.

Help us Help the United Food Bank

Please add your name to an ornament on our shop holiday tree indicating you helped us donate to the United Food Bank.


Happy Holidays from Accurate Automotive in Mesa, Arizona!


It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. As we take time to express gratitude for the year that is coming to a close this month we feel called to give back this holiday season. After taking some time to research charity organizations for the Holidays we learned about how many Americans are facing food insecurity and we knew we wanted to do our part to help. 


This holiday season we are contributing to the United Food Bank by donating $1 for every oil change scheduled until the 25th of December. This one-dollar donation will be at no extra charge to you, so you can get your oil change off of our checklist and give back in the process! Your oil change donation can help provide five nutritious meals to those in need! So please help us make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.


Did you know that in Arizona, 798,790 people are facing hunger, and 269,610 of them are children? We are inviting you to call (480) 890-0409 and schedule an oil change. Together we can do our part to help reduce those numbers and support our community this Holiday Season. 


The United Food Bank is a wonderful organization that distributes 52,000 meals daily. Their volunteer center is located close to downtown Mesa, Arizona; as is our shop. So we feel extra close to this organization and are grateful we are able to do our part with the help of our great community of customers like you. 


We truly believe in “Freinds… serving friends” and would love for you to help us by calling (480) 890-0409 to schedule your oil change. While you are at our shop please add your name to our tree of those who have helped us raise money for the United Food Bank this holiday season.

Even when you’re driving less you need to keep your service schedule

With many Americans working remotely and driving less, there is a common misconception that vehicle service needs to happen less frequently. At Accurate Automotive we pride ourselves in educating our customers and treating them like “Friends… serving friends” and friends would not let other friends make mistakes that can cost them a lot of money. 


It is important you keep your vehicle serviced and maintained even when you are not driving as much. Engine fluids are made up of chemical compositions and these chemicals break down over time so we recommend you check your vehicle’s manual and keep the schedule they suggest, even if you are driving less than in the past. 


Oil is the lifeblood of your engine, and not changing it can result in very costly problems down the road. Schedule your oil change by calling our Accurate Automotive Shop at (480) 890-0409. While we are changing your oil we will check your other engine fluids and let you know what we find so you can keep your vehicle on the road safely and reliably. 


You can trust us to offer you honest, quality vehicle service and repair at a price that’s fair.


We are a family-owned business since 1992 and we want to partner with you and take care of your vehicles for life so we value your trust and do what’s right for you every time. 


We are located in the heart of Mesa, Arizona between Country Club and Broadway and we are happy to shuttle you home, to work, or to school while we diagnose, service, and repair your vehicle.

Five (5) things families can pack to make your road trips more enjoyable

It’s the last week of October and the last week of Car Care Month! At Accurate Automotive every month is Car Care Month and we are here for you year-round! Whether you need regularly scheduled services such as oil changes, filter changes, or tire rotations or you have a major repair, Accurate Automotive is here for you since 1992. 

Although, Car Care Month is coming to an end the Holiday season is just beginning! Many of us are planning road trips and we want to make your road trips more enjoyable! In addition to being your full-service, most make and model vehicle repair shop of choice we believe in “Friends… serving friends” and sharing tips to help you prepare in more than one way! Last week we published a blog titled “Five (5) things to prepare for a more enjoyable road trip” you can check it out here.

This week we are expanding on that list and sharing Five (5) things families can pack to make their road trips more enjoyable. We hope you find them helpful! If you have any tips that work for you and your family please share them in the comments below! We would love to learn what works for you and your families! 

5 things to pack for your next family road trip:

  1. Messes happen. Pack a Dust Pan and Brush or a Cordless Handheld vacuum to easily clean them on and move on swiftly. 
  2. If you have little ones you know keeping them safe, fed, and entertained requires options. A backseat car organizer is a great way to pack and house necessities for little ones. Examples of things you can pack include coloring books, crayons, an electronic device such as an iPad,  tissues, a first aid kit,  sunscreen, bug spray, stuffed animal friends, toys, and wipes.
  3. Bring along a car Charger with multiple device outputs & Long Charging Cords. In last week’s blog, we talked about the importance of having multiple device outputs for road trips, but just as important is having a couple of long charging cords so you can charge your device while you watch a movie or listen to music while on the road. 
  4. Creature Comforts – At Accurate Automotive we understand having your vehicle in working order is essential but being comfortable in your vehicle is also important. When it comes to auto repair we call creature comforts things such as heating and AC, seat heaters, etc, but when it comes to road tripping creature comforts are things that make your trip more enjoyable for everyone traveling. Things like pillows for sleeping and lumbar support are great. Blankets, sweaters, socks, and other warming accessories are great for this Fall and upcoming Winter travel. 
  5. Cooler/Warmer for the Car with Drinks, Snacks, and Food. A cooler with drinks and colder snacks such as fruit and yogurt is a great way to pack healthier snacks. Lately, we have noticed people pack a cooler-warmer combo such as the one in the graphic above. This cooler is under $100 and has both cooling and warming effects that can be great for long road trips or those with specific dietary plans. We haven’t personally tried them but would love you to comment down below if you have and share your experience with us. Traveling by road is timeless but we love seeing the modern technology that makes it a more enjoyable experience for the whole family.

We hope you enjoyed our list of Five things to pack and bring on your next family road trip to make it more enjoyable! 

We hope you found at least some of these tips useful on your next family road trip. If you have any tips that work for you and your family please share them in the comments below! We would love to learn what works for you and your families! 


Remember that one of the best things you can do to prepare for your next family road trip is to have your vehicle serviced and maintained. Stay in control of your vehicle maintenance and keep your focus on family fun during your road trips and family vacations. 


Accurate Automotive is a family-owned shop close to downtown Mesa, Arizona since 1992. We believe in offering honest, quality vehicle repair at a price that’s fair and would love to be your vehicle service and maintenance shop of choice. For your convenience, we are happy to offer you a free shuttle home, work, or a nearby location (within 20 miles) while we service and repair your vehicle.
