SERVICES

The "lifeblood" of a car, engine oil lubricates a car's engine to keep it running smooth and last longer.

The most important part on a car, it is best to be proactive and have it checked twice a year.

Improper inflation can lead to accidents which may be catastrophic especially at high speeds.

WHEEL ALIGNMENT
The benefits of proper alignment include reduced tire wear, better gas mileage, improved handling, thus resulting in overall safer driving.

We carry all major tire brands. Please eMail or call us for availability.

BATTERIES

  • Slow engine crank: When you attempt to start the vehicle, the cranking of the engine is sluggish and takes longer than normal to start.
  • Check engine light: Will sometimes appear when the battery is weak.
  • Low battery fluid level: Car batteries typically have a part of the casing that’s translucent so you can always keep an eye on your battery’s fluid level. If the fluid level is below the lead plates : (energy conductor:) inside, it’s time to have the battery and charging system tested.
  • Swelling of battery case: If your battery case casing looks like this, you can blame excessive heat for this swelling, thus decreasing your battery life.
  • Battery leak: Leaking causes the corrosion around the posts (where the + and – cable connections are located). The gunk may need to be removed, otherwise, your car may not start.
  • Old age: Your battery can last well beyond three years but at the very least you should have its condition inspected yearly once it reaches this mark.

POWER STEERING

  • Color changes in your power steering fluid: A change in power steering fluid color might mean it is beginning to oxidize. If this is the case, you'll see it's gone from red to gray to black. When that happens it's time to change it out with new, fresh fluid.
  • Bubbles in your power steering fluid: If you see bubbles in your fluid, come see us quickly because you may have a potentially dangerous air leak in your power steering system.
  • Leaky fluid: Because your power steering system depends on a steady, high level of steering fluid being pumped into it, a leak means a problem. It could be a couple of things, such as a hole in the pipe or a connection that's out of line.
  • Difficulty Steering: Is your steering wheel harder to turn, or stuttering when you turn? These symptoms could mean your drive belt needs attention because it either is getting too hot or isn't staying in place and needs to be tightened.
  • Strange Noises: If you hear a whinnying squeal when turning the steering wheel, you may have a power steering issue. These noises usually come from a worn out drive belt or a steering pump that's on its last legs. Be on the lookout for strange noises because that's one of the main ways your car is telling you something is wrong. A strange noise from your car usually means it is trying to tell you something, so it's a good idea to listen.

TIPS AND ADVICE

 

Tire Myth #2

Myth #1:

The tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) in a new car makes sure the tires are adequately inflated.

Truth:

The tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) will not be able to issue warning until the tire pressure is 25% below the vehicle manufacturer's recommendation. Which according to AAA is "Well below the pressure required for a safe drive. The TPMS's job is ONLY to alert you before imminent failure and not to inform you when you need to inflate your tires.
