Many of the hoses and fittings used in your car's A/C system are made of durable rubber. However, the heat and cold can cause the rubber to crack and fail, leading to a problematic leak. An A/C expert can go over all your hoses and fix or replace any bad ones.

Shocks are an important part of your suspension system and critical to the smoothness and safety of the overall ride. They both absorb any larger-than-average bumps and keep all your wheels planted on the road.

12/27/2016

Roll-up covers can provide more security than standard soft tonneau covers, if used in conjunction with a locking tailgate. The vinyl cover is attached to a rear rail, which locks into the framework of the truck bed.

No part of your truck receives as much use as your steering wheel. Over time, steering wheels begin to breakdown due to use and heating from exposure. Check out our line of replacement steering wheel covers to find the style that fits your truck best.

12/20/2016

Being able to cover your pickup’s bed can be convenient, but sometimes you don’t need to open the lift the entire cover to get what you need. Luckily, Tonneau covers are available with opening doors on either side.

12/15/2016

While caps are securely attached to your truck, they can be removed if the need arises. A tonneau cover can be removed by two people, while other caps will require four people to remove (and return) a cap. Only a few tools are needed.

While the Automatic Safety Transmission (AST), an invention by General Motors, was certainly revolutionary for its time, it never really inspired the driving public and did not result in large sales numbers.

12/08/2016

While the road you're driving on may look smooth, the truth is that there are tons of bumps and rough areas, and going over these at high speed could send your car wheels flying off the road. Suspension counteracts these bumps to keep your wheels on the road.

12/06/2016

Most of your car's A/C is in the engine compartment, except for one part: The evaporator. This is usually located above the footwell on the passenger side, and is where the refrigerant evaporates, taking the heat from the air around it as it does.

One of the fluids that should be checked on a regular basis in your vehicle is the brake fluid. Your car should not consume brake fluid. Low brake fluid may indicate either a leak in the brake line or worn brake surfaces.

The onboard computer in your car coordinates almost all aspects of its various systems and functions. If the transmission slips, the computer compensates by increasing the line pressure to prevent further damage.

11/24/2016

A lot of modern engines use thinner viscosities than earlier engines for a variety of reasons, one of which you'll really appreciate on a cold morning. A thinner motor oil makes it much easier for an engine to start when cold.

11/22/2016

Automatic transmissions typically have between 800 and 1,000 seperate parts that make up an entire unit. This is counting the clutch plates, "o" rings, and nuts and bolts.

11/17/2016

Most car engines are four-stroke engines. This means a piston goes down, up, down, up to complete a cycle. When your engine's running, each piston does this thousands of times every minute, generating a lot of heat and friction. No wonder a car needs oil and coolant.

11/01/2016

One of the first tasks performed with an engine rebuild is that the lower half of the engine is removed and sent to a machine shop, where it is taken apart, cleaned, and the problem assessed. If necessary, this is where the piston rings (and pistons themselves if necessary) as well as the bearings are replaced.

10/27/2016

When your car’s air conditioning isn’t working during the hottest month of the year, you may find that your love of driving takes a significant hit. Let’s talk about how we can help you restore your love of driving by getting your AC working when you need it most.

Automatic transmission fluid (or ATF) is red to make sure it stands out from other engine fluids. It smells sweet, but transmission problems will turn the fluid dark red and give it a burnt smell.

The first American car company was Duryea Motor Wagon Company, founded in 1893. If you've never heard of them, it's because they were quickly overshadowed by Olds Motor Vehicle Company, which eventually became Oldsmobile.

Conventional auto suspension systems are actually complex systems that are made up of many different components. Beyond the springs and shock absorbers, there are also a variety of control arms, shafts, rods, bushings, joints, and knuckles involved.

10/06/2016

One of the benefits of investing in a pickup truck cover is that it greatly expands your storage space. With a protective lid, you can store everything from tools to groceries in the back of your truck, leaving more room for your passengers.

Remember the sturdy truck from the movie Twister? Care to guess its make and model? We'll give you a hint: It was built in 1995. That would be a Dodge Ram 2500.

It’s important to remember that you don’t always have to fix all the issues under your car’s hood just because you have the technical ability to do so. When you need someone else to take over your vehicle’s air conditioning repairs, we’re here for you.

09/15/2016

A refrigerant leak in the air conditioning system of your car does more than lower its cooling capacity. If your car is an older car, it may still use a CFC-12 refrigerant, which can damage the ozone layer. The sooner you fix the look, the less gets released into the air.

09/13/2016

The first car company to offer air conditioning for cars was the Packard Motor Car Company, starting with their 1940 model. These early optional unit cost the equivalent of $4,000 today, took up half the trunk, and had no thermostat. They were discontinued in 1941.

If you have heavy duty tools that need an extra durable toolbox, a steel truck toolbox can be the best option. Steel is more durable than aluminum, and will not ding or dent as easily, although you will have to repair chips which occur to prevent corrosion.

09/06/2016

If your car has been in an accident, or you’ve had major engine repair work done, arrange to have the transmission linkage checked and realigned. Why? The car won’t shift into the correct gear if the linkage is out of alignment.

09/01/2016

When engine piston rings wear out, the expanding gases produced by burning gasoline seep into the internal parts. Basically, they no longer seal the cylinders, creating what is commonly known as “blow-by.” In this case, you will need to have your engine rebuilt.
