Don't Get Stuck with a Dead Battery

When Should I Change My Car Battery

Most car batteries will last for 4-6 years, no matter how many miles you put on your car.  In fact, if you car is not used a lot it may cause the battery to fail prematurely.  If your car battery is more than three years, you need to have it tested. If it's test weak, replace it. You don't want to be stranded on the side of the road, or stuck in the morning on your way to work.

Remember, it's not the miles; it's the years that matter. Another thing to remember is that a car battery will fail most of the time without warning.

So, if you car battery is more than three years old, bring it us to have it tested.

We will test your battery free of charge.

Winter Maintenance for Your Vehicle

Radiator Coolant Service

Have you recently changed your radiator fluid? And, why do you need to change during the winter.   

During the winter months it helps keep the engine block from freezing in extreme cold temperatures when the vehicle is parked.  Changing the fluid helps keep your vehicle running well and helps with dirt and other contaminants that can build up in the fluid. 

This is the most vital part of your car's cooling system. The radiator fluid, or antifreeze coolant runs throughout your car's cooling system and helps keep your car engine cool while running.  

Most car manufacturers recommend that you change the radiator fluid in your vehicle every 24,000 to 36,000 miles, or every 24 to 36 months or refer to your owner's manual.

Snow Pack Wheels Can Affect Your Tire Balance!

If your car does not feel right, or it’s shaking while driving down the road it could be due to snow packed inside and around the tire rim. 

Snow packed around the inside of the tire rim can throw off the wheel balance, causing the car to shake.  The fix is easy, remove the snow.  If the snow is packed and turned to ice you may need to bring your vehicle in for service so we can get it in up onto the lift, but usually it’s not a big deal.

If after the snow is removed, the car does not feel right, something else is wrong please bring your vehicle in and have us to take a look.
