Q: Why when I come in for an oil change do I get a list of recommendations?
A: It is our job to make sure your vehicle is running as efficiently as possible. Additionally, we like you to be prepared for any upcoming maintenance. As part of our regular oil change we do a 66 point inspection. We check over all the major components and systems to determine what may need service in the next few months. That way there are no surprises both functionally and economically.

Do you know what a "K Service" is? A "K Service" is another name for factory scheduled maintenance. It is sometimes called that because it is based on the 1000 miles of your vehicle. The recommended services for 10,000 miles versus 60,000 miles would be different. It is important to keep up with your recommended factory scheduled maintenance so that your vehicle can run in optimal condition. #KService #FactoryScheduledMaintenance #AutoCorrectCarCare

Q: "My automatic car seems to be having trouble shifting gears, almost stuttering. What could be the problem?"
A: In an automatic transmission there are a variety of clutches, brakes and bands that engage, disengage and hold stationary certain parts of the gear set to change the ratios. These clutches, brakes and bands are activated by hydraulic pressure created by the fluid pump in your transmission that pressurizes the automatic transmission fluid. Your transmission may by slipping for one of two reasons. First, the components in your transmission may be overly worn causing them to literally slip when they are trying to make gear changes. The other possible cause would be due to low fluid pressure. If there is low transmission fluid then we will need to determine why the fluid is low, is there a leak somewhere or is there trouble pressurizing and pumping it through the system.

October is "Fall Car Care Awareness Month". Today we are featuring Tires and Brakes. Check the tire tread depth and tire pressure of all tires, including the spare. You'll want to make sure you have good tread to make sure you aren't slipping during the fall rain or winter snow and ice. Also, you will want to have your brakes checked. Brakes are one of the most important safety features on your vehicle. Make sure you have a good amount of life left on your brake pads and that your rotors are not warped. Additionally, you will want to double check brake lines for any rust or corrosion.

Q: "How does the alternator work?" How do I know if there is a problem with it?
A: An alternator is a generator of electric power in your car and is a major component of your vehicle's charging system. Whenever your engine is running, the alternator charges your battery and supplies additional electric power for the vehicle's electrical systems. The most frequent symptom of a problem with your vehicle's charging system is a battery-shaped warning light. Another sign could be dimming lights. Stop in and have your starting and charging systems tested for free.

Q: Does Coolant have anything to do with my A/C?
A: Actually these are two separate systems. Coolant, or Antifreeze, is the colored fluid (usually green, orange/red, or blue) found in your radiator. In the summer months it keeps the water in your radiator and engine from boiling over. In the winter, it keeps it from freezing, hence the dual name. Your A/C system uses a type of refrigerant (commonly called Freon) to cool the interior of your vehicle. Having a coolant flush performed will not help your A/C stay cool, or visa versa.

Do you understand the difference between "diagnosing a problem with the vehicle" vs. "checking a code in the computer". Simply checking the code in the computer can give a general idea of what the issue is, but if the root cause is not from a faulty part there are no additional steps you can take without running a full diagnostic. Doing that could include testing electrical systems or tracing wires to find the root cause. Running the vehicle to test multiple scenarios and to reproduce issues. This can take a great deal of time to determine the exact issue to insure it is repaired correctly.
