Frequently Asked Questions

We know it can be alarming when your check engine light come on, so our mechanics will gladly check the codes for free! Give us a call and let us know when to expect you. Our mechanic will use our computerized diagnostic tools to see what codes your car is setting. Your car has many computers, and the check engine light can indicate hundreds of issues. One common code is for an evaporative leak, which in many cases can be avoided if you tighten your gas cap after you fill up.
We are pleased to announce an exclusive partnership with Enterprise on San Antonio Road in Palo Alto (nearby our location in Mountain View), which enables our car repair and truck repair customers to rent a car for only $35 a day. Just call them a day or so in advance so they make sure to have a car available for you. Give them a call when you drop your vehicle off at Helming’s, and they will come to get you. They will also pick up the rental from Helming’s when your auto repairs are finished. What a deal!
Yes, we welcome fleet accounts. Please contact us for more information.
A safety inspection is a process by which our mechanic will go over your entire car and check the tires, belts, fluids, brakes, wipers, lights, battery, and more to make sure everything is in good working order. We then let you know our findings, making service recommendations if necessary, prioritizing what should be done soon and what can wait. We recommend that our customers get a safety inspection every year, particularly before going on a long road trip. Some states require that you get a safety inspection before you register your car; however, California is not one of them.
