  • Eric was amazingly helpful to work with. Great communication around the whole process. He was great about calling out things that could be done without being pushy about doing them. Would highly recommend!

    This place is a life saver. Great communication, great service, and very professional people. Eric worked with me through my whole repair. Kept me updated through out the process and fixed the problem on my car at a fair price. I will definitely make this my new place to go for all my car repairs and maintenance needs, along with sending my friends their way.

  • Quick and excellent service. I was turned away at my regular mechanic because he said he didn’t know how to do a transmission fluid change. This was my first time ever going to McCullough auto care, and I was very happy with my service. They were able to see me immediately and were patient with me considering the circumstances. Eric was great, and even matched the prices of another mechanic down the road. I will be back! Would recommend!

    I have used McCullough for maintenance on my prior vehicle and received great service. Recently I had to repair my front bumper - I received an estimate for repair services that was reasonable. The estimated turn around time was less days than other auto shops. The best part was, the staff (Graham) was accommodating with my schedule and the repair was completed as expected/on time. The work completed was great. I absolutely recommended McCullough for auto care services.

    McCullough has been my family's go-to mechanic for decades. Don't know what I would do without them - just a super-nice family that will take care of your cars. Their service is important to us because once we get a new car, we like to hold onto it for years (10-12). Highly recommend.

    Always extremely professional. Willing to work with customers. Sadly, car repair is expensive but they have worked with me. Graham has been extremely helpful with issues my daughter was having with her car while we were at another mechanic in the area. We asked on Nextdoor for recommendations and McCullough came up numerous times!

    This shop is the best. They did everything they could so I would have minimal time without my car such as having all parts ready before they scheduled the repair. They are super nice and no surprises on price. They opened up my bumper and found a part was damaged. They could have left it the way it and no one would have known but they were honest and did the right thing. I recommend 100%.

  • I have used this company twice and was VERY impressed both times with the honesty, knowledge, and cost-effectiveness of the mechanics that I worked with. They were upfront with me on what I needed to do now vs what could wait, showed me where I could save money, and worked with me to make sure I had my car finished before I needed it that weekend. Again, very very impressed. I wouldn't take my car anywhere else in Atlanta.

  • Wow! I am so impressed with the service I received. Having moved here from Nashville I was nervous about finding a mechanic! These guys are BUSY but they treat every customer like their priority. I got my car repaired within two days on a weekend! Prices can’t be beat and I was getting phone calls with detailed status updates. Amazing service. Really compassionate. Please doing business! I thought I was going to have to spend thousands fixing the plate that was dragging under my car but I got it fixed for under $200! Thank you!!!

    Very respectful, honest, and professional. I was having issues with my headlights, and they fixed it for a reasonable price. They do a lot to ensure that you have a positive experience, and that you're not wasting your money on unnecessary parts or repairs. Top notch service, A+!

    Great customer service! Eric and team did an awesome job coordinating their busy schedule with the schedule of my girlfriend and myself so that we would have a car during the work week and then trade off cars when the other was ready. They are extremely friendly and it felt like they had us as the customer in mind. Highly recommend!

    Able to fix issue with my 2011 truck other shops could not address- very hard to diagnose mechanical issue another reputable shops couldn’t figure out. Good prices, done on time, and with expert mechanics. Will have them work on all of my vehicles and highly recommended. Support a family owned business for a change!

    I really cannot count the number of times these brothers have taken care of me, my family and all our various vehicles. We have been loyal customers for more than 20 years! They have done everything we have needed on cars, trailers, used car evaluations for purchase, tank drops, and all the basics. They are very trustworthy and will give you a honest answer on everything and a reasonable estimate on what it will cost to resolve it. They are super busy, so plan to wait a day or two longer than you might somewhere else, but it is worth it!

    I would normally recommend this business as I have been here a few times. I went there Friday for an oil change. However, I honestly didn't feel safe. They have signs that customers must wear a mask. There was only one employee wearing a mask themselves. All the others didn't have a mask on. I feel this is disrespectful to their customers. I understand it can be uncomfortable but it is essential during these times.

    We have been depending on McCullough's at least since 1997, when we purchased a home only a few blocks away, walking distance really. Had our emissions test a few days ago and want to acknowledge Jack, who completed the tests quickly. I asked him to determine why the backup camera was not in the proper position. It took a bit of time and ingenuity to get everything right. Thanks Jack, for the excellent service.

What Can Cause A Check Engine Light To Be On?

Here are a few reasons why the check engine light may be on in your BMW.

  1. Worn Out Spark Plugs. Spark plugs create the spark that ignites the mixture of fuel and air to create combustion and power your engine. Dull or worn-out spark plugs can misfire, which could cause your check engine light to turn on.
  2. Loose or Faulty Gas Cap. That’s right. something as simple as a loose gas cap can cause your check engine light to turn on. This can cause you to lose fuel from evaporation and is an easy fix to make.
  3. Issues with Your Catalytic Convertor. The catalytic converter changes carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide. When your catalytic converter isn’t working properly, you’ll experience a loss in fuel economy and performance.  There are many possible causes for a failing catalytic converter, all of which can cause the check engine light in your BMW to turn on.
  4. Failing Mass Airflow Sensor. The mass airflow sensor is responsible for determining how much air should enter your engine. Issues with your engine will occur when your MAF (Mass Air Flow sensor) is not calculating air intake properly. This can cause your check engine light to turn on.

If your check engine light is flashing, that means you have a serious problem. If it’s on but not flashing, there is still an issue, but not as severe. In either case, we urge you to bring your BMW into our shop when the light becomes illuminated. Our ACE-Certified Technicians can perform a check engine light diagnostic on your BMW to find the root cause of the issue and make repairs as needed.
