Driving habits can have an effect on an engine's wear and gas consumption. To reduce gas consumption and vehicular wear, try to avoid sudden acceleration and braking, turn off the engine if the vehicle will be sitting for more than a few minutes and watch your speed.


What are a few signs which often occur when a head gasket is blown? Continual overheating, excessive coolant loss, a presence of foam or froth on the oil dipstick, and white smoke from the exhaust pipe with a sweet smell.


What exactly is a head gasket? The head gasket is a seal that fits between the engine block and the piston cylinder - essentially the head gasket not only seals off the combustion process of the engine but it also prevents liquids - like oil and coolants - from mixing.


Do squealing brakes always indicate a serious problem? Not always. Sometimes brakes squeal because of issues which are easy to resolve including loose fitting brake pads, missing springs or a rough finish on rotors which have been resurfaced.


When a car is overheating may provide helpful clues towards the cause. For example, if a car overheats when stopped or idling, the problem could be related to a worn fan or belt - a car overheating at high speeds could be due to radiator, thermostat or hose issues.


What common signs can occur when a brake master cylinder needs to be replaced? The brakes may begin to feel squishy or soft and will need to be pumped to temporary return to normal pressure, and the red brake warning light will often turn on as well.


Why should black smoke emissions from the tailpipe be addressed soon? Because black smoke is usually caused by excess fuel entering the cylinder - and excess fuel in the cylinder reduces fuel economy and lowers the overall performance of the engine.


What can be the cause of black smoke coming out of the tailpipe? In many cases, black smoke is produced when too much fuel has entered the cylinder. Too much fuel may be allowed into the cylinder due to problems with computer sensors, fuel pumps or fuel injectors.


When a battery needs a jump-start, it can take hours of driving for the battery to fully recharge. To charge the battery to its full charge after a jump-start, a hook-up to a battery charger may be necessary.


Is the pressure level on tires the right pressure level to use? No. The pressure level printed on tires is only the maximum pressure the tires can safely hold - the automaker's recommended pressure tire level is the one which should be used on the tires.


What is the best thing to do if a vehicle begins to overheat? Immediately stop the vehicle and wait until it cools before popping the hood and checking fluid levels. Avoid driving if fluid levels are low or if the vehicle continues to overheat.


Did you know that tires will degrade with time whether they are used or not? Whenever you buy new tires, used tires or even a used car - check the tires for the manufacture date. Tires more than six years old - used and unused - should be replaced.


How often should an unused emergency spare tire be replaced? At least every 10 years. Overtime, the emergency spare in the back of your vehicle will begin to degrade and crack - replacing the spare at least every 10 years will ensure the spare will function when needed.


Letting a car warm up for longer than a few minutes in cold temperatures will only waste gas on modern cars and can contribute to engine damage on older models. When it's cold outside, cars only need to warm up for about 30 to 60 seconds before driving.


Why is warming a cold car up not as important as it used to be? Because most of today's cars have electronic fuel injection systems which adjust to a car's temperature - when the engine is cold, the fuel injectors will stay open longer to allow more fuel into the engine.


What is the best way to warm up a car in cold temperatures? Let the car run for between 30 to 60 seconds before driving. For the first few minutes of driving, drive gently while all of the car's parts continue to warm up.


Are pricier oil filters really worth the extra cost? Absolutely. Lower cost oil filters generally remove particles that are larger than 40 microns but higher priced filters which remove smaller particles can have a dramatic effect on reducing engine wear.


Does the "check engine light" always indicate a big problem with the engine? No. In fact, in many cases the check engine light may come on due to cracked hoses, parts which have become loose, worn-out spark plugs or because of electrical/wiring issues.


Before cars completely breakdown, there are usually a variety of warning signs which indicate an impending problem. These warning signs often include: foul odors, check engine lights, tailpipe smoke, slow starts and accelerations and odd noises.


What are the benefits of switching to synthetic automobile oil? Synthetic oils improve exhaust emissions, increase fuel economy, help to reduce wear and tear on the engine and have increased thermal protection which reduces risks for overheating.


Why should an engine with more than 60,000 miles be flushed before switching to synthetic motor oil? Because the cleansing properties of synthetic motor oil will breakdown leftover debris which may in turn clog the oil filter - flushing the engine first will remove old debris.


What is the number one sign which occurs when small amounts of contaminants find their way into the fuel supply? Smoke emitted from the tailpipes. The color and smell of the smoke can provide additional clues which may identify the cause of the contamination.


Did you know that white smoke emitted from tailpipes can be an indication of contaminants within the fuel supply? In many instances, the white smoke occurs when water condensation or antifreeze finds its way into the fuel supply.


What can blue smoke from tailpipes mean? In many instances, when blue smoke is emitted from tailpipes, this is an indication of an oil leak - the blue smoke often occurs when oil which has leaked within the engine is burned.


Did you know that a vehicle's odor can offer clues on the health of the vehicle? Strong or unusual odors can be an early warning sign of engine trouble - particularly odors associated with exhaust smoke or odors with sweet or burning smells.


Did you know that the first "automobile repair mechanics" were often horse carriage repairmen? When automobiles began to overtake the use of the horse carriage, many horse carriage repairmen made the transition to automobile repairmen.


Brake fluid is largely ignored, but when you bring your car in, we like to remind you that it needs to be changed every two to three years. The brake system's hydraulic components get a much longer life this way.


Antifreeze in your coolant is an extremely important part of preventative maintenance for your vehicle. It keeps the coolant from freezing, it keeps the system from corroding and it prevents overheating during summer months by raising the boiling temperature.


We believe getting your automatic transmission fluid changed every 25,000 to 30,000 miles is good preventative maintenance for your transmission. Repairing and replacing the transmission is so expensive, and changing the fluid and filter is so easy.


If you consider changing an oil filter a DIY job, make sure it's the right filter for your car. Some filters look the same on the outside but have slight differences on the inside and can make a big mess if put in your car.


We recommend changing your oil filter every time you get your oil changed, though traditional wisdom says you should change it every other oil change. Why risk your new oil getting dirty with an old, material-clogged filter?


In modern engines, the oil pump routes all of the oil it picks up through the filter, which should be changed often, before it moves on. In time, there's so much material that a bypass valve is tripped and unfiltered oil goes to the engine.


The oil filter is the engine's way of defending itself against abrasive material and any premature wear it gets as a result of that material. The filter removes materials like dirt, metal particles and carbon that can wear an engine down.


If you take good care of your car and engage in preventative maintenance by keeping a good record of what you've done, what maintenance we've done and what plans you have for it, you'll get a long life out of your car.


Keep a record describing how often and for what you brought us your vehicle. It's a bad idea to try to remember it on your own. With a record you can easily see what's been done and what needs to be done.
