Javan Jackson

Just wanted to say thank you Mark, Patty, and Jay for assisting my girlfriend and I in our time of need! Drove about 4 hours to pick up a car that was otherwise unfixable, but through the magic of Jay’s fingers(and a tool or two) he was able to get us back on the road in no time at all! I am in the business of customer service and it is so very refreshing to come across a group of people and business owners that truly believe in honesty, integrity, and communication. So again, shout out to Pugh’s Service for all of your help, and continued success and blessings for many years to come

I needed a towing service in an unfamiliar town and found Pugh’s via google. They were helpful from the start and remained in communication with me via phone and text until my car was repaired. They went above and beyond! Thank you!

Work on two of my trucks so far. The service is top notch and the prices weren’t bad either. They have old time service down pat.

Pugh's Automotive Service, Dover DE.Just about everyone has experienced that uneasy feeling that happens when your car's "check engine" light suddenly comes on. That's because what it means is not always clear. It could indicate a wide variety of problems, some major and some minor, anything from a loose gas cap to a severe drivetrain malfunction. And while it doesn't necessarily mean that you have to pull over right away and call a towing service, it does mean that you need to have your car checked out to identify the problem as soon as you can.

Sometimes your check engine light turns red and blinks, which usually indicates an issue that needs immediate attention. At other times, it may simply be a steady yellow, and although that probably means it's not an emergency, you still shouldn't take any chances. Whatever the problem is, your car thinks it's important enough to warn you about it, and ignoring it could lead to thousands of dollars in repairs and replacement parts that otherwise wouldn't have been necessary!
