Your nose can tell you a lot about how your vehicle is operating. There are numerous materials and fluids that all have certain properties for normal operation, but once they get too hot, they will produce a noticeable smell. A sweet, acrid smell is likely electrical wiring, and since wiring is well hidden it’s best to evacuate a vehicle with this smell.

Out of the blue, there’s suddenly green, red, or other color fluids under my car. WHAT’S GOING ON!! No need to panic…yet. Depending on the manufacturer, some coolants are red, some are green, and some are yellow. Never mix colors, and always use the color your vehicle already has in the radiator. Also, many transmission fluids are red. If any of these are under your car, you have a leak, and it needs to be addressed. If it’s monstrously large, don’t drive the car, have it towed to avoid more damage.

Fuel costs continue to rise, and there are ways to minimize the damage to your bank account. Keep your car in its best tune at all times. Replace the air filter no later than when scheduled. Keep your fuel injection system clean, so it operates more efficiently. Fuel up when it’s cooler, so the fuel you buy is more dense. And consolidate trips and drive a little slower, to get the maximum miles per gallon of fuel. Come in and see us for more gas-saving tips!

Modern vehicles now have a filter, similar to the engine air filter, in the cabin ventilation system. It does the same function, that of removing dust, particles, and pollen from the ventilation air. In some luxury brands, this is a HEPA filter for its better filtering properties. Usually well-located for maintenance, this filter should be changed often to protect your family from airborne contaminants. We know where it is , and can change it for you at your next service.

Just like your steering system, your brake system is a major part of controlling your vehicle once it starts moving. The braking system is what slows you down, allowing you to safely enter a corner or driveway and keep control. It stops you whenever you want to stop, or immediately if there’s an emergency ahead. There are many parts to your braking system, and they need to be inspected regularly. Make an appointment today so you can keep your family safe.

How did your wipers work the last time it rained? Did they skip, streak, split or squeak? If so, now is the time to have them replaced. It’s a quick maintenance option that will increase your visibility in the rain, helping you to drive safely, as well as protect your glass from scratching. Don’t forget the rear wiper, if you have one. Because when it’s raining and you’re backing up, being able to see is important too!

At home you change your furnace filter, but what about your vehicle’s Cabin Air Filter?

Tires need tread depth to provide grip and to channel water away from the point of road contact. As tread decreases, there is less traction available, and your vehicle can slide, or even hydroplane in wet weather. We’ll check your tread depth and let you know when it’s time for change.

Hoses and serpentine belts are items that need regular inspection for wear. The serpentine can fray and break, causing the loss of power steering, electrical power, and engine cooling. Hoses can develop leaks, losing your engine coolant and causing your car to overheat. Whenever that hood is up, have the technician give a quick inspection.

Greetings! I read your help wanted ad on Craigslist- it interested me to the point of contacting you about employment. My name is Mike Moffett, although I go by the nick-name of Doc. I am a forty-year veteran of the auto repair business, Having on pretty much all makes and models, and have worked in 4 different states. I currently reside in Omaha, As my family and grand kids live here. I have been back for 15 years. I am well-tooled, and have vast experience. I am currently not working; the last separation having been due to a pay dispute. My phone number is 402-706-3241. I can be reached anytime. Thank You, Mike moffett. (Doc)
Can you list what makes of cars you service specifically? I can see Honda, Toyota, Volkswagon, Audi and BMW. But do you do Mazda and Nissan too? What about Mitsubishi?
I went in today to see if they could work on my sons Passat. The man who came to assist me said they are not taking any new customers during the summer. Its April and spring time not June. When I asked if he could recommend someone I was told no just check around he did not know anyone. I seriously doubt he did not know because he is in the business of foreign cars.This is very bad business. Don't tell me its summer when it's not and have a recommendation for someone who wanted your business that you won't provide for. I have been in the customer service business for 24 years and know what bad service is. This business provides poor customer service.
