Simple Steps to Save Gas Without Driving Less

Gas prices are up, everywhere! To save money on fuel without having to impact your present lifestyle, try these tips…

NO jackrabbit starts! Your vehicle uses the most fuel when accelerating.

If you accelerate slowly, you can minimize the surge of fuel to meet the demands of getting rolling. In fact, if you can keep your vehicle moving and reduce the need for stops, you’ll save even more.

When Too Cool Is Not So Hot

Whether you have a heater only, heater and A/C, or a fully automatic climate control system in your vehicle, they need periodic maintenance to perform correctly. Heaters are completely dependent on the operating condition of your engine’s cooling system, as they use the hot coolant as a heat source for your passenger cabin. Air Conditioning systems use an engine-driven belt to turn a compressor, which circulates freon to take heat out of the passenger area.

Slime on the Driveway: Monsters Under my Car!

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 us to avoid more damage.

Don't Let your Car Be The Nightmare on Elm Street!

If you notice that your car, truck, or SUV is wandering, or pulling to one side of the road, that’s an indication of a safety issue with your steering. It may be caused by bad tires, a steering component failure, an alignment issue, or some other problem.

Once it starts, it’s likely to get worse, and could lead to a catastrophic failure and a collision. At the first sign of this, come in and we’ll do an inspection. We’ll find your steering goblins and get your vehicle back to handling like a dream!

Have You Had Your Battery Checked Lately?

Your vehicle’s battery has a lot to do! It provides electrical power to start the engine. It sends power to operate all of the cabin accessories, such as the stereo, lighting, and the blower motor for the A/C and defroster. It powers the instrument panel so we can see what our vehicle is doing.

And as vehicles get more complex, even more systems are added, such as navigation, engine, and transmission management, Wi-Fi, lane departure, self-driving modes and much more.
