Autumn is a good time to "check your spare tire" to ensure that it is properly inflated, The typical space-saver spare tire found in most cars must be inflated to the inflation pressure listed on the side of the tire. #tirepressure   #tires   #autorepairshop   #falltips

The summer is no joke, with so much planned and all the heat the last thing anyone wants to do is get into a car with no ac. Making sure it is running properly & making an appointment with your auto shop should be first on your to-do list before hitting your end of summer trips.
Here's a helpful tip::
With the engine running, does the compressor clutch engage when the A/C is switched on? If it does not, this usually indicates a low (or empty) refrigerant condition, or an electrical problem. Also, listen for rapid clicking or cycling noises at the compressor when the A/C is switched on. If this is happening, it could also indicate low refrigerant or some other problems. Have it checked by your service technician. (Note: Some A/C systems prevent compressor clutch engagement in low temperatures, typically at or below 40° F.) #summer   #summertrips   #autorepair   #acrepair   #airconditioningrepair

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.

"Wiper blades should be replaced annually every fall,"
With autumn's shorter days, cooler temperatures and inclement weather drawing closer, now is a good time to get your car ready for the demands of the coming driving season.
You generally use your wipers more frequently in the fall and winter. They'll also be taking a lot more abuse from road grime and windshield-washer solvent, so it's best to have a fresh set then.

"Brake fade" is a very dangerous condition in which your brake pedal feels like it is working, but your car does not stop. In some case, it can happen even if your vehicle's brakes are new and the entire braking system is in good working condition.

"What causes brake fade? "
Friction Fade
This is the most common and main cause of brake fade. Friction fade often occurs when the driver presses lightly on the brakes (just enough to slow the vehicle) with letting go while driving down a very long hill. #brakes   #brakefade   #brakeproblems   #autorepairshop

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

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.
