Bad Ignition Coils
This is a video of a bad ignition coil. It’s not supposed to spark on the outside, only on the inside where you shouldn’t see it. A bad coil can make your vehicle run bad and potentially leave you stranded.

What I appreciate most about Tom's Auto in West Seattle is their level of customer service. Compared to a dealership shop, their personal attention to details like explaining the list of items your car needs in order of priority helps to break it down and not be overwhelmed. Yes, car repairs can add up, but their approach makes it palatable. It puts us in the position to prioritize what to take care of first. They are experts in auto repairs and customer service!

EXCELLENT service. I went in for burned out tail lights. They took me without an appointment; got me in and out in 20 minutes and chargedme less than $25. Definitely going back

This place has been so friendly and helpful. Twice I've brought my car by and they've look at it without charging to troubleshoot an issue for me. I've been looking for a new mechanic in the West Seattle area and plan to use this place whenever I need something.
