Hi everyone, well summer has been pretty good to us so far, except keeping up with the grass growing, small price for great weather, this is my 32 year at the shop. same location, I don't keep store front hours anymore, I used to baby sit the office from 8-5, no I get there around 9ish and leave when I am done, however the Cell phone business line is what gives me this luxury, If you stop and I am not there, Feel free to call me and lets set up time to see how we can solve your car issues, thanks again to everyone, I appreciate the business and the loyalty, going fishing tomorrow with my daughters, have fun all, Craig


Well again Summer is on the door step, Thank God, If you need help with your AC system give me a call or stop by the shop, I would be happy to help you with it, Traditionally the cost of freon is almost twice as much the hotter it gets outside, so getting your system done early can save you money,

Check Engine Light, this is a huge topic, what is going on is, Your car can see a problem, almost all newer cars within the last ten years use a two trip fail logic, this means when the light comes on, you actually had the same problem the last time you drove the car, it will store a pending code when the problem is first detected, if the problem continues and the computer can see the same fail in two drive cycles it turns on the light to warn you to have it checked out, there are over a thousand trouble codes, you can never guess at the problem, you need to have it put on the computer at the shop and correctly diagnosed, some problems are simple and will not do any damage, and some are about to make you walk or call for a tow truck, If you have this problem and need help, I have all the software and up to date equipment to diagnose and repair this type of problem, Thanks for reading Craig J


If you are buying a used car and would like to have it looked at before you finalize the deal, You can call me and test drive it by the shop, I would be happy to take a look at it and give you my opinion on it before you buy it, If you would like me to help you with a used car purchase, I have many contacts, just tell me what it is your looking for and a price range, I will do my best to assist you in finding the right car, Craig J


Also I want to remind you , If you need a ride home from the shop or picked up when your car is ready, that is no trouble at all, I also use a Cell for the shop now so you can Text us or call
Thanks for business everyone,


Does the engine in your car have a timing belt or a timing chain, this is something you should know, if you have a timing chain, generally this will last as long as your engine without any service, If you have a timing belt, it needs to be replaced about every 90 thousand miles on almost all cars, When the belt becomes loose or damaged and it comes off, your engine can sustain extensive internal damage costing as much as 2 thousand dollars, not to be confused with the serpentine belt all cars have, This is an important service so if you do not know , Find out, you can google it or call the shop and I will tell you have fun hope you all are well, Craig


Hope you are all doing well, Was a pretty cold few days last week, Looking forward to spring time myself, Julie is doing well, half way through her second round of Chemo, Thanks for all the prayers everyone, take care, Call the shop if I can help you with anything 330 628 0946, you can also txt this number

Hi Everyone, I appreciate the Business from everyone, I do A/C recharges to complete system replacement, anything and everything you might need to keep you Air conditioning system up and running properly, Just stop by or call the shop 330-628-0946


What is the difference between regular oil and high mileage oil, it is actually just heavier oil, there are some things that you can add to oil to get the same affect, the one I like the best is Lucas Oil additive, you can get this at any parts store, or ask me for it when I am changing the oil in your car. Heavier oil is a great idea for the new modern engines when they have around 100 K on them, the bearings are now worn just enough to allow for the heavy oil to circulate and increase your oil pressure, New cars are using oil as thin as 5w30, this is a very thin oil that is easily consumed by engines when they have higher miles, So that is the answer to high mileage oil question, Thanks and call anytime 330-628-0946 Craig


Does your AC system need recharged? If it is that simple you can just stop by to have this done while you wait, and if it is something other than that I can tell you what you need to do to get it working, Or you can call me at 330-628-0946 Craig

Good morning, A question I get a lot, should I have my car oil sprayed, The answer is Yes, It sure helps the car in the long run, The brake lines and fuel lines are better protected, along with other hardware that holds the car together, such as fuel tank straps, and so on, I repair rust damaged brake lines all the time, and oil will help prevent this, or slow down rust that has started, There are not many places to take the car for this, it is a very messy job, I do know a couple shops that do a good job give me a call if you need help finding someone for this service, have a great day all,
