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.

Our family has been a client of Tom's since 2005 and we have never been disappointed. My husband does most of the work on our cars and we only bring them to the shop when he is stuck with something he can't do. At Tom's, not only do they always offer a menu of solutions to fit different budgets, but they have also provided advice regarding what my husband could do on his own, and we appreciate that very much.

Tom's automotive has very experienced, professional and friendly staff. As a female, I don't feel I can trust certain mechanics. The owner is female and I completely trust her advise. They gave me a list of what maintenance items needed to be completed but did not pressure to complete them at that time.

I just love this place! They go above and beyond and never try to upsell. When I had a flat tire the night before my appointment, they dropped the tire off at Les Schwab (where I had bought it), picked it up, and put it on my car after servicing it. No extra charge. So important to have a place you trust, especially as a single woman. Thanks, Tom's!
