$800 for a child safety seat?. Overpriced? Not if your child had hip surgery. This "Britax Hippo" becomes priceless. 
 
"Child safety seat installations" are performed nearly everyday at Buckley's Auto Care and at no charge. We work closely with +Christiana Care to make sure that expecting parents are able to have their "child car seats" safely installed or inspected just in time for that special delivery. 

Today, our "certified car seat technician", Steve Buckley, was asked to install a very special "special needs car seat" in a vehicle. The customer had mentioned that their child had recently had #hipsurgery  and that only a "Britax Hippo" car seat would be able to accommodate the child's needs. We made the installation and adjustments in time for the parents to make their child's discharge date.  

Buckley's Auto Care is the only "auto repair center" in #Delaware that offers car seat fittings as part of our everyday service menu. 

For more information about our car seat program please use this link http://goo.gl/rShLGI

This is when an internal transmission cooler cracks allowing the trans fluid to mix with the engine cooling system. Yes, this is a big mess and can lead to severe damage in the two systems. 
 
Just a nasty situation when an internal transmission cooler cracks. The results are a contamination of both the cooling system and the transmission as well. In this example, we see the effects of the cooling system where the transmission fluid has combined with the engine coolant to produce a milkshake type substance which is detrimental to the condition of the water pump, radiator and heater core.

The fix, is to completely flush the cooling system, replace the radiator, inspect all pumps and of course the transmission fluid must be serviced as well.

Most of the time I take videos about car maintenance. Today, it was something different... I think we're Samuel L. Jackson approved now.

+Gary Schopp Thanks Gary. We couldn't do that. That big guy does keep those other critters under control. Plus, that would be inviting way to much bad Karma in and that's not happening...

Who'd a thought that washing hands is so involved.. Great time with The Cleaning Girls today. 
 
We never want to leave smudge marks in or on your car so we gladly participated in "National Clean Hands Day" at the shop this morning with the great crew of The Cleaning Girl a local cleaning and office maintenance company here in Wilmington. We learned that it is recommended to take at least 15 seconds to thoroughly wash your hands. And there is a proper technique as well. Who knew? #cleanhands

I thought this would be a great video to show the importance of winter time maintenance.
 
"Radiator flushes" are typically every 2- 5 years depending on the type of "engine coolant" your vehicle requires. This is an example of an internal transmission cooler that cracked, causing extreme contamination within the radiator and transmission.

"wintertime car maintenance" is available now. Stop in or call us at 302-999-8285. Or, follow our link to http://www.buckleysautocare.com

Thank you - Greg Buckley

Does anyone have any thoughts on Telematics - The Connected Car. What do you think are the good and bad of such technology. Privacy, cost, need? I'd appreciate your insights.

Story
Tagline
One great wife and two works of art, make me a very happy man.
Introduction
Started in the repair business at the age of 8 being a "pump jockey" at our original Atlantic Service Station in our hometown of Wilmington, Delaware. Moved to the service bays by 11 and have grown into managing and owning our 46 year old family repair business with my brother Steve.

I have a fantastic (and patient) wife with whom I have created two miracles; my kids.

The passion and competitiveness of business makes me rise and shine everyday. I really cannot imagine myself working for anyone other than myself. It's a curse, I know.
Bragging rights
Have a great family, like to think and write, small business owner, like getting to know you
Work
Occupation
Automotive Repair Shop Owner - It's what I've been doing for practically all of my life. I'm passionate about our profession and all small business. It's very hard to explain to most what we do and how we get the job done, but we do. I'll share what I know and accept the same from all of you.
