Some people like to tow a car or truck behind their motorhome; this is referred to as “flat-towing”. However, you must be aware of the towed vehicle’s ability to be flat-towed, as many cars cannot be pulled in this way. Before flat towing your car, refer to your owner’s manual or contact your transmission professional for advice.

A tune-up today is entirely different from a tune-up of just 20 years ago. Today’s engines require computers and special diagnostic equipment to pinpoint components that are marginal or failing. If your car is starting to run rough or use too much fuel, it’s time for a look under the hood…and under the dash.

PFM team building track day was Oct 14th.
The PFM teams first experience driving on the road course. Fortunately one of our customers Travis is a semi pro driver and gave us some great tips.
Even with his guidance Eric and Noah spun out in the S2000.
For some reason Travis was laughing hysterically the whole time he rode with me????
Lots of fun and laughs.

If you’re driving an older vehicle, it’s a good idea to check your seatbelts for wear. Any fraying or cuts means that belt will not be able to take the weight load of an accident. This is especially important if that vehicle is inspected by state or DOT authorities. Seat belts ARE replaceable, so bring your car, truck, or SUV to us for belt inspection or replacement.

The days of shifting through “PRNSL” (or even 1-2-3-4) are pretty much gone. More and more, auto manufacturers are choosing brand-specific shift levers and sequences for their cars. Some are now using a k**b on the dash or console; some can be shifted by paddles behind the steering wheel, and a few have gear selection via a button on the dash. Make sure you’re familiar with how to select the right gear before driving any vehicle.

You go out to start your car, and…it won’t turn over. Nothing. Maybe if the battery gets a jump, it will be OK. At this point, if you know, FOR SURE, how to jump start a car, fine. Proceed. If you don’t, STOP. Call us, and let us handle it. Working with batteries is dangerous and can cause serious bodily harm, or even death. It can also damage far more of your car than the battery if a jump is tried improperly.

The leaves on your windshield are telling you it’s time to replace your windshield wipers. Replace both front, and rear wipers if your car or truck is so equipped. This is also a good time to replace your wiper fluid with something more than just water. Most store-bought fluids have some alcohol in them to avoid freezing. We are here to help, so give us a call today to schedule an appointment.

Keeping your vehicle clean is a great way to visually inspect for leaks, wear, or a broken component. Many parts give clues to their condition, and if they’re covered with dust or mud you may not know they’re failing until they actually cause a breakdown. Get your vehicle washed regularly so you can see what’s up.

Brake fluid needs to be checked; not only to make sure it’s full, but also to make sure it’s clean. Hotter temperatures can ruin brake fluid, causing a spongy pedal and other issues. It’s a “best practice” to have the brake fluid changed at least every 30,000 miles or 2 years, and sometimes sooner as recommended by your vehicle manufacturer. We can handle this for you; just give us a call!
