"How often should I replace my timing belt?"
The change intervals stipulated for timing belts vary depending on the vehicle manufacturer. They can range from 30,000 to 100,000 miles depending on make and model. Always consult the vehicles’ service manual for recommended change interval. Early detection saves many problems.

School carpool season is upon us and the non-profit Car Care Council reminds drivers to make sure their vehicles are kid-safe and road ready with a five-point checklist:

"Check lights and wipers for visibility". With shorter days and inclement weather ahead, make sure lights and wipers function properly so that you can see and be seen. Check the exterior and interior lights and replace any that are dimming, rapidly blinking or not functioning. Check wiper blades for signs of wear and replace if necessary.
"Get an annual brake inspection." The braking system is your car’s most important safety feature. Before carpool season gets in full swing, make sure that your brakes are functioning properly. Schedule a brake inspection and look for warning signs that your vehicle may need brake services, such as an illuminated brake light or screeching, grinding or clicking noises when applying the brakes.
"Check tires for under inflation or excessive wear." Check tire pressure and refill underinflated tires, including the spare, and look for uneven wear and check tread depth. An easy way to do the latter is by placing a penny head-down in the tread groove. If the tread does not cover Lincoln’s head, it’s time to replace your tires.
"Make sure everyone is buckled up" The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website has important tips on seat belt fit and position. For the younger ones riding along, the site has information about how to install car seats as well as guidelines on selecting a car seat or booster based on your child’s age and size.
"Consider a back-up detection device". Consider having a back-up detection device installed that provides rearview video or warning sounds when moving in reverse. While drivers should not rely solely on these devices, they can help to reduce the risk of backover incidents along with following other prevention tips from NHTSA.

“Back-to-school time is hectic for most families, but scheduling a complete vehicle inspection is time well spent,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “Knowing your vehicle was checked by a professional technician will give you peace of mind and make all those trips to school and activities safer and less stressful.”

Automotive Tips from Auto Authority LLC: Making a Battery Last Longer

One thing all drivers can do to extend the life of their battery is to keep it clean. A greasy, dirty battery holds in damaging heat. Same goes for removing corrosion from the terminals. Auto Authority LLC can help maintain your battery.

Allowing your battery to be deeply depleted – like from using your headlights when the engine is off – is very harmful to your battery. Most automotive batteries can only take that about 10 times before they are ruined.

Also, making sure you have a full charge every month or so extends battery life. Either an extended drive at freeway speeds around the Oshkosh are or using a battery charger will preserve your battery’s ability to hold a full charge.

Give us a call.

"Why did my car stop moving?" "My engine revs, but my car doesn't move."  These concerns can be caused by a broken drive axle.
A broken drive axle or drive shaft is usually accompanied by a loud noise and loss of motion.  
Drive-train components are just a few of the many things our technicians at Auto Authority LLC inspect when your vehicle is here for service.

Many  people don't realize they have a cabin air filter and come to Auto Authority LLC saying "my vents are smelling bad.'" It usually turns out to be a dirty cabin air filter. 
More and more new cars are coming equipped with cabin air filters. Check your vehicle owner's manual, but they typically need to be replaced at around twelve to fifteen thousand miles.
The filter is usually under the vehicle hood or under the dashboard. Some are a little tricky to get to, so you'll want to have your friendly and knowledgeable Auto Authority LLC service technician take care of replacing them.
People who suffer from allergies can really benefit from a cabin air filter, as it keeps irritants to a minimum. If you're one of them, you'll want to replace your filter regularly.
If you do a lot of driving in dusty or polluted  conditions, you'll need to change your cabin air filter more often.

"Prepare your vehicle for winter driving"

The non-profit Car Care Council recommends checking the following areas of your vehicle so it is road ready when severe winter weather strikes.
Check the "battery" and charging system for optimum performance. Cold weather is hard on batteries.
Check the "antifreeze". As a general rule of thumb, clean, flush and put new antifreeze in the cooling system every two years.
Check that heaters, defrosters and "wipers" work properly. Consider winter wiper blades and use cold weather washer fluid.
Check the "tire tread depth and tire pressure". If snow and ice are a problem in your area, consider special tires designed to grip slick roads. During winter, tire pressure should be checked weekly.
Check the "oil and filter" and be diligent about changing them at recommended intervals. Dirty oil can spell trouble in winter. Consider changing to “winter weight” oil if you live in a cold climate. Check the fuel, air and transmission filters at the same time.
Check "engine performance" before winter sets in. Winter magnifies existing problems such as hard starts, sluggish performance or rough idling.
Check the "brakes". The braking system is the vehicle’s most important safety item.
Check the "exhaust system" for carbon monoxide leaks, which can be especially dangerous during cold weather driving when windows are closed.
Check to see that exterior and interior lights work and "headlights" are properly aimed.
   During winter, drivers should keep their vehicle’s gas tank at least half-full to decrease the chances of moisture forming in the gas lines and possibly freezing. Motorists should also check the tire pressure of the spare in the trunk and stock an emergency kit with an ice scraper and snow brush, jumper cables, flashlight, blanket, extra clothes, bottled water, dry food snacks and needed medication.
