Q
What Should I Do When My Check Engine Lights Come On?
AWhen your check engine light comes on, there could be a number of issues. It could be something basic, like a loose gas cap, or it could be something more serious. The best way to know that you are safe driving your vehicle is to bring it into our shop for an inspection. We can find the problem and make you aware of it so you can choose whether or not you want to take the next steps to getting your vehicle back to peak conditions.
Q
How Often Should I Have My Brakes Checked?
AIt is important to often check your brakes. Most drivers have their brakes checked when they have their tires rotated. One of the mechanics at our service center can check the thickness of your brake pads to make sure they are running in the best conditions. Your brake pads are necessary for maintaining stopping power, so be sure to have them checked every chance that you get.
Q
What Happens When I Don’t Change My Oil?
AOil is the lubricant that keeps your vehicle running smoothly. If you do not change your oil when it needs to be changed then it will completely break down and leave sludge in your vehicle’s engine. This will wear your engine over time and cause it to break down much sooner.
Q
Why Does My Vehicle Need a Coolant Flush?
AYour coolant is what helps keep your vehicle from overheating. It, just like your vehicle’s oil, can break down and cause sludge. This wears down your vehicle and could cause it to overheat which is not good. A coolant flush allows you to get rid of all of that old coolant and replace it with clean coolant. It also allows you to clean out a bit of that broken down coolant, preventing it from causing further damage to your engine.
Q
Is it really necessary to replace my timing belt at the recommended interval?
AYES. The failure of a timing belt in many cars can result in major engine damage. The cost of repairing an engine with a broken timing belt is much greater than the cost of a timing belt replacement.

  • What is the tire pressure of my tires?

    You should always set the tire pressure by the tire manufacturer’s pressure specs. They can be found on the side of the tire. To realize better mileage, tire wear, and handling, run the pressure at the maximum pressure. You need to remember car makers do not make tires. The tire manufacturers are the experts and should be your source for pressure information. Car makers are more concerned with the best ride not the best mileage, wear, or handling. Additionally, the pressure car makers recommend is for the tires that they install at the factory.
