Operating as usual


Belts and hoses are often forgotten about until they break. Regularly check them for weaknesses and signs of wear. If you think they need replacing, bring your car in and we'll take care of it.


Is there a rotten egg or sulfur odor coming from your engine? Its cause could be a faulty oxygen sensor, catalytic converter, PCV valve, or some other issue. Fortunately, it is an easily diagnosed and repaired problem.


It is important to check the oil level in your vehicle regularly. Otherwise, you run the risk of serious engine damage.


Did you know that regular maintenance like oil changes can help keep you safe while you drive? The maintenance will make sure that your car is running well, and give your mechanics a chance to check belts, hoses, and other parts for wear.


The aroma of burning plastic coming from the engine while it's running could either be a problem with the battery cable or your vehicle's wiring could be in contact with the hot engine.


If the exhaust is blue when your engine is running, it's burning oil. There are a number of possible causes, including a leak at the oil pan, the valve seals, or the head gasket.


When removing window stickers, it is important to do so carefully to avoid scratching the glass.


When a car's windows are down, it can cause the gas mileage to be reduced.


Tapping noises coming from the engine while it's running may only be a sticky valve lifter. However, it can also indicate a problem with oil flow through the engine. Have it diagnosed and fixed to avoid serious problems.


When a car is out of alignment, tire treads can start to wear unevenly.


Checking the condition of your windshield wiper blades regularly can help to ensure that they will function properly.


If corrosion should build up on the battery terminals, this could lead to a loss of power.


Keep your radiator in top condition by performing routine maintenance. Flush it periodically and add new fluids. Also, replace belts and hoses according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.


The best way to help avoid accidents when you’re driving is to practice defensive driving techniques. Keep all of your attention on the road while at the wheel. Pay attention to those around you so you can predict their actions and be prepared for the unexpected.


When cleaning different car surfaces, be sure to choose an appropriate cleaning product for the material.


The amount of time that a car battery will last can depend on many factors.


If your vehicle should need a jump-start, it is important to keep safety in mind. If you do not feel comfortable jump-starting the vehicle yourself, it is recommended that you contact a roadside assistance service.


If you notice one section of the engine is dirtier than another, it may be that the oil filter is clogged. It needs to be replaced, along with having the oil changed as well.


If your car's windshield wipers are not cleaning your windshield properly, you may simply need to clean the wiper blades.


If you are planning to not use your vehicle for an extended period of time, it is recommended that you make plans for someone to drive it monthly at a minimum.


When a vehicle's tires are underinflated, this can lead to a reduction in gas mileage for the vehicle.


As a driver, it’s important that you are prepared for all and any emergency. An emergency road kit should be carried at all times and should include a flashlight, road flares, first aid kit, blanket, water, road atlas, and warm clothes (as needed in the winter season).


The EVAP system (evaporative control system) captures fuel evaporating from the fuel tank and fuel lines and returns it to the engine for more complete combustion. If the engine is idling roughly and the Check Engine light is on, the canister purge valve in the EVAP system may be faulty.


Keep in mind that air bag systems are meant to be supplemental to seat belt restraint systems. Air bags are meant only to cushion the contact between a driver and the steering wheel and/or dashboard and not to restrain the passenger in the front seat.


How many miles do you hope to get out of your car? Today's vehicles, with proper maintenance and quick repair of problems as soon as they arise, can go for several hundred thousand miles.


If you are ever in a car accident with another car, it’s important that you exchange vital information before leaving the accident site. Write down the name, address, phone number, insurance information, and license numbers for all drivers involved in the accident, and also collect information from any witnesses.


To help extend the life of your brakes, give them a good spraying when you wash your car to remove the accumulated dust and dirt that can cause the pads to wear down.


Operating a vehicle with one tire that’s under-inflated by 6 lbs. per square inch can reduce the life of the tire and increase fuel consumption by 3%. It can also reduce your handling, so keeping your tires at the right pressure also keeps you safe.


If you see oil on the ground beneath the rear axle of your car, have it checked out immediately. It indicates a problem with one of the seals and creates dangerous driving conditions.


Misaligned wheels will make your tires drag instead of rolling smoothly. The result is increased wear, reduced fuel efficiency, and poor handling. Make sure that you get your alignment checked once a year to keep your car running as smoothly as possible.


When putting oil into the engine, use the correct viscosity for the time of year and for your climate. Also, visually check the oil on the dipstick to prevent problems—if it's dirty or gummy, bring your car in.


If your car failed an emissions test, it could be the exhaust system's air pump. Its job is to send fresh air through the exhaust system to help complete the combustion of exhaust gases.


One of the easiest and most effective things you can do to improve driver safety on the road is to avoid driving distracted. This means putting down the cell phone, food, hairbrush, and makeup, and avoid messing with the radio or heater while driving.


Sludge in the crankcase is a problem. Its causes can include not changing the oil at recommended intervals, using the wrong grade of oil, a broken PCV valve, or piston ring damage, among others.
