How to give your performance or production car the royal treatment

Experts in Everett began with Z cars, now service and modify a wide range of imports, domestics

You’re driving along and all of a sudden a light appears on your instrument console. Depending on your vehicle, it indicates something is wrong with your engine.

So do you leave it for a while, hoping it turns off by itself, or do you take steps to find out more about what might be happening?

“The car may feel like it’s running perfect. But the check engine light is a sign that something is going on with your vehicle,” says Chuck Watts, general manager and chief technical officer for Z Sport Automotive in Everett. “It may be something big, it may be something small. But if it’s something big, you’re going to be glad you brought it in to get looked after.”

Your vehicle is in good hands

The trained technicians at the company’s two Everett shops can quickly diagnose the problem and provide you with a solution, no matter what make or model or vehicle you drive. Z Sport Automotive specializes in Asian and domestic vehicles, while Z Sport Euro focuses on German and other European imports.

Troubleshooting check engine lights is just one of their strong points. Here some other services Z Sport provides to keep your vehicle tuned and in tip-top mechanical shape:

  • Keeping you in a routine Making sure you have regular maintenance performed on your vehicle is important to extend its life. From oil changes to tuneups and more, Z Sport will help you stay on top of things.
  • Need a vehicle analysis? If you want to know whether that used car you’re considering buying is in good shape or has any secrets under the hood, bring it in for a mechanical inspection to ensure you’re making the right decision.
  • Performance mods made easy If you’re looking to increase the performance of your car, whether for street or hot rodding purposes or for making gains on the track, you’ll find plenty of experience and knowledge at Z Sport. From engine builds and swaps to forced induction installations and more, they’ve been at the performance game for 25 years.
  • Your Z-car experts Z Sport was founded by Gary Watts more than two decades ago out of a demand to provide service and performance upgrades to Nissan’s Z cars. Even if you don’t own one of these classic sports cars, you’ll find the experience they’ve gained through the years helpful when it comes to working on your car.
