Worried about When Should I Replace a Car Battery?

When should you replace your car battery?

Although batteries can last for five years or more when properly cared for, most car batteries will become worn down and inefficient within three years of everyday use in normal conditions. Just like your computer or smart-phone battery becomes less efficient with every charge, so your car battery gradually deteriorates every time it’s charged up by the vehicle’s engine.

Things to consider:
1- How is the auto electrical system responding?
2- The newer your car, the bigger the strain on its battery.
3- Check your battery frequently to avoid breakdowns and extend its lifespan.
4- Cars with stop-start technology may need special batteries.

Wondering when should I replace a car battery? Ask your mechanic to check your car battery to see if it’s time for a car battery replacement.

Top 4 Common Symptoms of Low Transmission Fluid | Cannon Auto Repair

Is your transmission fluid low??

First of all, you may be wondering, what is transmission fluid? Transmission fluid is a slippery liquid that lubricates all the surfaces and components of the transmission system so they don’t wear out too quickly by preventing excessive friction and overheating. It also serves as a viscous fluid that transmits power from the engine to the transmission.

Transmission fluid is supposed to remain in your vehicle for its entire lifespan without changing it, although some mechanics will tell you that you should change it every 50,000 miles.

However, if your transmission develops a leak because of a worn out or damaged component, you may start to notice some or all of the following symptoms of low transmission fluid:
1- Delayed Shifting
2- Difficult or Erratic Shifting
3- Transmission Overheats.

If any of the above symptoms persist after you’ve topped off the transmission fluid, then it’s very likely that your transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced. To avoid this, start checking your transmission fluid on a regular basis. If you put a lot of miles on your vehicle or tow heavy loads, then you should check it at least every two weeks. Otherwise, most drivers can check it once a month (unless there’s a leak)

SAVE GAS!

Gas-Saving Tips for Your Auto
While it is always wise to conserve natural resources, the recent price of gasoline has made even the most wasteful people think twice. Whatever your motivation, here are some gas saving tips from the pros at the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).

1- Monitor tires. Under inflated tires or poorly aligned wheels waste fuel by forcing the engine to work harder. (Let the tires cool down before checking the air pressure.) Out-of-line wheels, as evidenced by uneven tread wear, should be aligned by a professional.

2- Remove excess weight. Remove unnecessary items from the vehicle. Store only essentials in the trunk. Less weight means better mileage.

3- Consolidate trips and errands. Some trips may be unnecessary. Also, try to travel when traffic is light so you can avoid stop-and-go conditions.

4- Avoid excessive idling. Shut off the engine while waiting for friends and family.

5- Observe speed limits. Speeding decreases your miles per gallon.

6- Drive gently. Sudden accelerations guzzle gas. Anticipate traffic patterns ahead and adjust your speed gradually.

7- Use windows and air conditioning wisely. Your mileage should improve if you keep the windows closed at highway speeds, since air drag is reduced. This is true even with the air conditioning on-assuming that the system is in good working order. But turn the air conditioning off in stop-and-go traffic to save fuel.

8- Keep your engine "tuned up." A well-maintained engine operates at peak efficiency, maximizing gas mileage. Follow the service schedules listed in the owner's manual. Replace filters and fluids as recommended; have engine performance problems (rough idling, poor acceleration, etc.) corrected at a repair facility. Given today's high-tech engines, it's wise to have this type of work done by auto technicians who are ASE certified in engine performance.

These conservation tips will not only save gasoline, they'll help extend the life of your vehicle. Win-win, indeed.
