OPINION TIME.... After many people have asked.

Lately Mobil 1 has had a very agresive marketing campaign pushing their One Year oil change. Other companies have had this around for a while and for the most part it is like paying for 4 oil changes at once. There are limitations Mobil 1 is 20,000 miles Ams oil is 25,000 and this is intended for light use cars. This does not apply to oil field, first responders or taxi vehicles. Now that you know that.....

All though this may seem appealing to many people, this is MY OPINION, one of the advantages of having your vehicle maintained every 3 to 5 thousand miles is the visual inspection. Many times we catch potential problems with your vehicle before they are expensive and potentially dangerous. Even at 20 mph there are parts of your suspension, brakes, and drive train that experience a very violent environment that can fail if not inspected. Our goal is not only to keep your car maintained but also to keep the most important things in your life safe. This is Just my personal opinion. Thank you. Angel Pacanins

Good morning Albany Lions Football fans.
WAITING TILL LAST MINUTE COULD KEEP YOU FROM GOING TO THE STATE GAME!!!

If you plan to make the trip to Houston this week. Please make sure to come in early today or tomorrow. So we can make sure your car will be road ready, and we can also check for something like this....

This tire looks great from the outside. As you can tell it is in no shape to make a 12 hour trip (6 hours there, 6 hours back) this will most likely leave you rooting for the lions from the side of the road instead of the sideline bleachers.

We must order most tires so if you wait till wend. You will be staying home. Call if you cant come in we will do our best to come pick your vehicle up. 325 762 3959.

The first freeze is upon us!!!!!! When was the last time you checked your anti freeze?

Call us let us service your vehicle today 325 762 3959

DO NOT ADD STRAIGHT ANTI FREEZE TO YOUR VEHICLE!!!
Anti freeze is a chemical that has to be mixed with water in order to work. Straight antifreeze will freeze. If you need to top off make sure you buy a pre mixed global antifreeze. Global will go into any make or modle, no matter what color it is.

If not to spec the water in your engine could freeze. When it does it expands. If you are lucky it will only knock out a freeze plug and it will only cost you a few hundred dollars to correct the problem. It could however crack your block making you have to replace your motor or vehicle.
A correct anti freeze level also makes your heater in your car work right.
Many vehicles loose some coolant and the car owner decides to only add water (diluting the anti freeze) later they forget about it. A freeze happens and the car starts to over heat. Unfortunately they never got the anti freeze right and the repair is quite costly.

#tiretuesday

Tire tuesday... did you know that old tires are dangerous? California's highway patrol have released the posible cause of the accident that killed actor Paul Walker was the 9 year old tires that the porche had on it.

How Long Does a Tire Last?
Carmakers, tire makers and rubber manufacturers differ in their opinions about the lifespan of a tire. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has no specific guidelines on tire aging and defers to the recommendations of carmakers and tire manufacturers. Carmakers such as Nissan and Mercedes-Benz tell consumers to replace tires six years after their production date, regardless of tread life. Tire manufacturers such as Continental and Michelin say a tire can last up to 10 years, provided you get annual tire inspections after the fifth year.

The Rubber Manufacturers Association says there is no way to put a date on when a tire "expires," because such factors as heat, storage and conditions of use can dramatically reduce the life of a tire. Here's more on each of these factors.

Heat: NHTSA research has found that tires age more quickly in warmer climates. NHTSA also found that environmental conditions like exposure to sunlight and coastal climates can hasten the aging process. People who live in warm weather and coastal states should keep this in mind when deciding whether they should retire a tire.

Storage: This applies to spare tires and tires that are sitting in a garage or shop. Consider how a spare tire lives its life. If you own a truck, the spare may be mounted underneath the vehicle, exposed to dirt and the elements.

If your spare is in the trunk, it's as if it is "baking in a miniature oven," says Dan Zielinski, senior vice president of public affairs for the Rubber Manufacturers Association. Most often, the spare never sees the light of day. But if the tire has been inflated and mounted on a wheel, it is technically "in service," even if it's never been used, Gervin says.

A tire that has not been mounted and is just sitting in a tire shop or your garage will age more slowly than one that has been put into service on a car. But it ages nonetheless.

Conditions of use: This refers to how the tire is treated. Is it properly inflated? Has it hit the curb too many times? Has it ever been repaired for a puncture? Tires on a car that's only driven on the weekends will have a different aging pattern than those on a car that's driven daily on the highway. All these factors contribute to how quickly or slowly a tire wears out.

Proper maintenance is the best thing a person can do to ensure a long tire life. Gervin recommends that you maintain proper air pressure in tires, have them rotated regularly and have them routinely inspected.
