"why shouldn't I use dexcool coolant in my car?" Dexcool became popular in the 1990s. It was a long life coolant, that was less toxic than standard green coolant. However dexcool solidifies when it makes contact with air. When your cooling system develops a leak, even a small one, air displaces the coolant in your system and the dexcool will start to solidify causing blockages within the system. If this problem goes undetected, a large repair bill can be in your future. We recommend replacing your dexcool with multi vehicle long life coolant. You will receive the same protection without the worry of damaging your cooling system.

"shocks and struts" What comes to mind when you think of shocks and struts? Ride comfort? Improved handling? Safety? All three are correct. Replacing worn struts and shocks will make your car feel and drive like new again. It will also help you maneuver and stop better in an emergency situation. We recommend KYB replacement parts and offer professional installation.

"my brakes are vibrating" Brake vibration is caused when your brake rotors become warped. If you feel vibration during braking, you should have your brakes inspected by a qualified technician. In most cases the rotors will just need to be machined and your good to go! To avoid this condition, avoid riding your brake pedal, especially down hills. Also make sure anytime someone tightens your lug nuts they do it to the proper torque specification.

"why isn't my ac cooling"  Now that the weather is warming up, most people our turning on their car's ac systems  that have been off all winter.  If the ac doesn't seem to be cooling properly, you should have the system checked.  The refrigerant level may be low and if ran in this condition for an extended period there is a possibility of causing damage to the system.  Refrigerant is a gas and over time it escapes through the rubber hoses.  You should have your system checked and charged every few years.

"Is engine sludge normal?"
Absolutely not.  However engine sludge is real and can lead to very expensive repairs.  The main culprit to engine sludge is extended oil change intervals.  Manufacturers are continually giving longer intervals to owners to show how worry free their vehicles are.  The truth is, most of the time this is harmful to your car.  Especially if you plan on keeping it for over 100,000 miles. H&I Automotive still recommends 3000 mile oil changes and not to exceed 5000 miles.  Even with synthetic oil the heat and combustion of your engine breaks down the oil and leaves residue that leads to sludge.  The sludge will cause low oil pressure, blockages and in extreme cases engine failure.
Remember oil changes are far more cost effective than engine repairs!

"Spring car maintenance"  when spring time comes, besides planning summer vacations, it is a great time to get your vehicle ready for the summer.  Summer heat is very demanding on your vehicle. Make sure you car is ready by having a full inspection completed by a certified technician.  Make sure they include the engine cooling system and AC inspections.

"Why is my gas mileage so bad?"
That is a great question.  The number one cause is poor maintenance of your vehicle.  Everything from tire pressures, dirty filters, carbon build up and worn ignition components can cause your fuel efficiency to plummet.  We recommend your car be serviced at least twice a year and make sure these vital components are checked every visit.  Your car will not only be more efficient it will also perform better.

"suspension noise over bumps"  Ever here a squeak, rattle or clunk when driving over a bump or dip.  This is your vehicle's way of telling you something may be wrong. If you are hearing strange noises from your car it is best to have a professional technician determine what is causing it.  It could be as simple as a dry bushing in the suspension, or as serious as a suspension part that is about to fail.  Always have noise concerns addressed quickly to void a possible unsafe situation.
