Fluids play an essential role in proper automobile operation. Incorrect fluid levels can cause catastrophic engine and transmission damage, or even an accident. When checking car fluids ensure that the car is level so that your readings are accurate, and that it will not move by applying the parking brake or chocking the wheels. You can use your owner's manual to familiarize yourself with the dipstick and fill locations, as well as the recommended fluids and procedures. #autorepairshop   #automaintenance   #autofluids

On your car-part replacement calendar, it doesn’t get much easier than where your "power steering fluid " is concerned.  Still, give it proper consideration, since it lubricates the system and keeps the steering feel consistent. Periodic checks of the fluid are done with a glance at the reservoir or the dipstick inside it. Make sure you add only the manufacturer’s suggested fluid type and talk to a technician if the level drops considerably or you feel surges of resistance as you turn the wheel.

When to replace: Inspect level with every engine-oil change, top off as needed. #autorepair   #powersteering   #carmaintenance

Coolant Hoses

The "radiator hoses" and heater hoses are easily inspected by opening the hood and looking.  You want to be sure that the hoses have no cracking or splitting and that there is no bulging or swelling at the ends.  
 
If there are any signs of problems, the hose should be replaced with the correct part number for the year, make, model and engine of the vehicle.  
 
Never use a universal hose unless it is an emergency and a proper molded hose is not available. #ac   #coolanthoses   #automaintenance   #autorepairshop

"Why does my A/C have weak airflow?"

Main causes of weak airflow:

1. Mold or mildew may have accumulated in the evaporator core from residual moisture that occurs during the cooling process. When this happens, air will have trouble reaching your air vents.

2. A hose has come loose. This usually happens with the blower hose that supplies air to the blower unit.

3. Ventilation fan is fried. If the fan’s not blowing, air won’t be flowing very well.

4. Seals. No, not those seals down by the pier. Core case seals, blower house seals or evaporator core case seals; All can open up and diminish air flow. A/C ventilation systems are very sensitive and must remain sealed. Once they’re opened, the whole system is compromised.

A regular "car air conditioner" service or regas will help to ensure optimum passenger comfort, particularly on those hot summer days when you need it the most.

Contrary to what some people believe, an "auto air-conditioner system" does not simply blow cold air into the car. The Air-con system is actually designed to remove the hot air from within the vehicle cabin and dispel it to atmosphere outside the car.

In order to do so, the air conditioner system relies on a number of components to operate effectively, such as the evaporator, condenser and compressor. Like all mechanical parts, these items are prone to wear and regular system servicing helps to protect them from breakdown.

road trips are the best to plan, of course you want to bring a long the swimsuits and water toys but don't forget to make sure the car is as ready as you are..  If your car has Trouble getting started
This could mean that your fuel filter is on its way to being completely clogged, but isn't quite there yet. You'll want to get it changed out now before you end up dealing with the inconvenience of not being able to start-up.

A few causes of low cooling efficiency or no cooling at all are: 

Lack of air flow across the condenser. Make sure the electric cooling fan motor near the condenser is coming on, or in models that are equipped with a fan blade make sure this fan is turning and is turning very fast. #airconditioningrepair   #autorepairshop   #automaintenance

Car Maintenance check List;
This is an item that’s probably as important as it is overlooked. Assuming yours is a "fuel-injected car", the fuel filter is more or less on continuous duty whenever your ignition is on and the fuel pump is active, preventing impurities from clogging injectors. So, over time, replacement will be necessary. Locations vary from beneath the hood or undercarriage to inside the fuel tank itself. Since systems are often pressurized and fuel lines need to be safely crimped, you might prefer to let a technician handle it.

When to replace: Every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

"Why Rotate the Tires?"

The front tires on most vehicles tend to wear out faster than the rear tires. This is due to the effects of steering the vehicle and the weight transfer that occurs during braking. To ensure that all four tires wear evenly, it is important to rotate them on a regular basis. Tire rotation helps maintain balanced handling because it allows all four tires to wear at the same rate. Keep in mind, as tire wear reduces tread depth, it increases the tires' response to driver inputs. Consequently, by equalizing tire wear at all four corners, dry road performance is actually enhanced. #tirerotation   #tiremaintenance   #autorepairshop   #carmaintenance

"Auto Air conditioner tips"

What is Black death?

Black Death starts out inside the compressor after refrigerant breaks down. Since refrigerant acts as a working fluid much like how motor oil is the fluid which provides lubrication to protect the engine, a refrigerant breakdown will result in ugly wear, starting in the compressor. From there, the sharp and grimy metal particles created during compressor breakdown can then travel through the rest of your A/C system, wreaking havoc on the entire system. Before you know it, all cold air, and airflow for that matter, will be long gone. Cue the A/C grim reaper. #airconditionerrepair   #autorepairservice   #autoacrepair   #acrepair   #cameronparkrepairshop   #autoreairshop

What is Camber??

Camber is the angle that the top of the tire leans away from the center of the car. what we really want is for the top of the tire to lean toward the center of the car. This is called negative camber. Negative camber is good!  
still not sure?? 
In plain English that means that the contact patch of the tires that most of the car’s weight is on when you are turning will be almost perfectly flat on the pavement.   #wheelalignment   #wheelalignmentshop   #numberonewheelalignmentshop   #knowthefacts   #autorepairshop

California Weather is no joke, there's nothing worse then not being able to escape the heat and being stuck in a car with no ac. To see if your A/C system is performing, measure the outlet temperature at the vent with an accurate thermometer. Drive the car with the A/C on "max". With temperatures in the 70's to 80's Fahrenheit the outlet temperature should be around 35 to 48 degrees. #acrepair   #airconditioningrepairservice   #autorepairshop   #autorepair

Excellent service. Friendly & professional. My son's adapted van was towed into their garage and they began assessment immediately. Communication was frequent and informative. They worked to keep the price down, while doing a full repair and advised on some safety precautions that we could take. This shop will be getting my 2002 Handa next for a full inspection and what ever maintenance is required, and will be servicing any family cars in the future. Highly recommended.

I have known Mike since I was 16 years old, I will be turning 31 on Feb 19th. He fixed my very first car, 84 Camaro. I remember my first impression of him was I knew he was a car guy first and foremost. My cars have always been done right the first time. Mike is the type of guy who is not only honest, but he has a passion for what he does, and you can feel it as a customer. Being the owner you might think you would never meet him. Fact is I see and talk with Mike more than anyone else there, he makes it a point to make you feel like family. Today I got my car smogged and as usual I was impressed with the service and wait time. I have not seen Mike in a long time, but not much has changed. To me that's a good thing, you can tell he cares more than ever and has a life long dedication to his customers and business, again, because it's passion that drives him. I assure you that if you just make one visit there you will be hooked for life, and wanting to tell all your friends and family about him. Oh, his wife is now the manager and runs the office. I have never met her before, but she is very sweet and made me feel right at home. God Bless people like Mike and his family, they are truly a wonderful gift to our community.
