Drivers who live in cold and wet climates are all too familiar with what happens to
According to the annual CarMD Vehicle Health Index one of the most common check engine light
That little engine part called the spark plug performs a huge job in delivering a vehicle's power, performance,
According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
Ben was a pleasure to work with. He went above and beyond to help me with inspecting a vehicle I was interested in purchasing while I was across the country. I highly recommend him. Extremely knowledgeable.
This place never ceases to amaze me. The depth of their knowledge about all cars combined with professional, efficient and reasonably priced service is a home run. Thanks Wales!
Great shop!! Ben and his guys are definitely good at what they do!! Honest, trustworthy, forthcoming and won't try and charge you for anything you don't unnecessarily need. They also don't push you to buy from them... For example Ben said to me "I don't care if you get it done here... but please just get it done for your own safety." To sum it up great shop, great guys, great work. But that's just my opinion.
Ben and his team are great mechanics- honest and reliable.
Very good shop. It's been around since before I was born. It's a little pricey but they do quality work and it's like their sign says. "For people who want to keep their cars."
Wonderful mechanics! The level of their knowledge about all cars coupled with professionalism is what make me bring my car here for repairs. I wont go anywhere else!
