Why does my car battery go dead? Sometimes it can be as simple as replacing the battery. Occasionally, further diagnosis is required to find the root of the mysterious battery drainage. After thoroughly checking every circuit to find an occasional electrical draw, this Mini had an alternator wiring problem that needed to be addressed. For Interstate Batteries, starters, alternators or any other electrical issues, give us a call or email us.

Where can I get my car aligned? Here is a classic case of why alignment and rotation is so important. This tire was on a car that was brought to us for vibration and noise when driving. This wear did not happen overnight. It is a very slow painful process that other shops she took her car for service, never noticed. The tire is so severely cupped that steel belt and cord material is showing in multiple spots around the tire. After a set of tires and an alignment it is smooth sailing once again. Now she wants to come to us to take care of her tires as well as service on her car.

Who does steering work or suspension work near me? Autocamp Tire and Auto Service can diagnose and repair any concerns or problems you may have with your car or light truck. Here is a vehicle brought in for Pa State Inspection. The steering shaft has just a little too much play to Safety Inspection. The truck actually drove just fine, not even much play in the steering wheel. But a thorough inspection by one of our team uncovered this gem. The customer was shocked to know his employees were driving this truck and had no apparent steering problems.

We found a part on a car that none of us have ever seen before. Apparently it's called a "schmuffler". This is when a used car dealer takes the right rear shock that is broken off at the top and uses binder twine to attach is to the exhaust. Unfortunately the customer purchased this SUV "as is" and the dealer won't take it back. And that was just the beginning of the problems with this vehicle. No the customer elected not to fix the car.

What do the lights on my dash mean? There are a number of lights that will illuminate on your dash to warn of a potential problem. If you are not sure what these lights mean, then please bring your car or light truck to Autocamp Tire and Auto Service. We have the diagnostic equipment, experience,and the ASE Certified Technicians to correctly diagnose any issues you may have. Getting a free Engine Light Check at a parts store is definitely not the same as having a technician correctly diagnose and repair the problem. Reading a code from the computer only indicates which circuit or set of parts to check. The real culprit may not actually be the the specific part, but possibly a connector or wiring issue within that circuit. We've seen any number of vehicles where the customer got a code read, replaced the part the parts store suggested and the check engine light is still on. This just adds to the expense by installing wrong parts. People always want to save money, and by having the vehicle diagnosed correctly is almost always the best value. Bring your vehicle to Autocamp Tire and Auto Service and have the piece of mind knowing we will take good care of you and your wheels. After all, we have been keeping you safe for over 32 years.

It's the time of year to get that cooling system checked in your car or light truck. Be sure you have the protection in your radiator from freezing at cold temperatures. Also regular flushing of the cooling system will protect the radiator and engine from corrosion and build up of particles that can block the passages in the radiator and heater core. Even the extended life coolants needs to be changed occasionally. Give us a call to schedule an appointment for that winter check up and service.

Why does my power steering make noise? When power steering fluid gets low the power steering pump has to work harder with less fluid. Not a good thing for the pump. If power steering fluid is low, usually there is a leak. In this instance the leak came from a high pressure power steering line under a clamp. The clamp, lined with foam, was a perfect place to hold moisture and allow the lines to corrode an cause a leak. If you experience noise when steering or find any mystery fluids under your vehicle, let's get it in to take a look before it causes more problems.

How can I tell when my tires are worn? The best way is to have a tire professional check them out. Just giving the tire a kick and checking the outside of the tread is not enough. We check the tire the entire way across the tread and the sidewall to give you a thorough evaluation of your tires. This tire didn't even look good from the outside walking around the car. Further inspection showed the tire cords showing on the inside edge. This is absolutely an unsafe tire. Fortunately it didn't go flat or come apart before we saw it. For any tire needs or questions, please give us a call or stop by.
