Coolant exchanges are critical in order to protect your vehicle's cooling system. It is important to protect the cooling system to prevent overheating which in turn can cause serious damage to your engine. There are several steps to check the coolant, but the simplest way is a visual check. We recommend you flush your cooling system every 24 months or 30,000 miles. Learn more by reading the information presented at the link below. #coolingsystem #coolant #automotivetips

Did you know that we can perform an Uber vehicle inspection here? One of the requirements of becoming an Uber driver is that you must have an eligible 4-door vehicle. In order for your vehicle to be eligible for the road, it must pass the Vehicle Inspection guidelines.

Uber prides themselves on the quality and ease of their services. One way they achieve this is by requiring drivers to have a mutli-point inspection performed by a trusted automotive facility.

How to cool an overheating engine? With the hot weather this summer has brought us, your vehicle is at risk of overheating. Most of us have our A/C on full blast which could trigger our engine to overheat. Even if you maintain your vehicle well, this can still occur. So it is important to know what to do in order to remain safe if your vehicle overheats. #engineoverheating   #caroverheating   #autorepairshop

This Week at V&F: A customer from West Springfield brought in their "2006 Nissan Xterra" concerned that their brakes were grinding. Our technician took the Xterra on a road test to verify the customer’s concern. The technician confirmed the noise and continued his visual inspection on the vehicle. It was concluded that the rear calipers had become frozen and the piston was broken. The left rear "caliper pistons" had broken off and jammed into the rotors (no pad left). The right rear "caliper was stuck" on and the "pads were metal to metal." #brakecheck  

For the customer’s safety, we recommended a complete Rear Disc Brake Job. We installed rear brake pads, removed and replaced the rotors and calipers, along with inspected the brake hoses. In addition, we repacked the wheel bearings and topped off the brake fluid. The customer’s Xterra is now safe and stopping properly! #brakerepair
