Did you know?

  • Your car’s Battery life is not dictated by the cold winter months, but actually the high temperatures of the summer heat. Unfortunately, most of us don’t notice that our batteries aren’t working properly until the cold months arrive. Inconveniently, slow starts and no starts reveal a bad battery in the dead of winter. It is best to have your battery tested in the fall.
  • On average…the life of a Battery is three to five years.
  • If the Check Engine Light illuminates in your dash while you are driving your vehicle may have an emissions or sensor problem. You should make an appointment to have it diagnosed. If the light flashes, this indicates the condition is more severe. You should immediately seek the advice of an automotive repair specialist. (Note…a loose gas cap can trigger a check engine light.)
  • Keep your Fuel System functioning at its best! Inspect or have your Fuel Filter inspected at each oil change. Check for restrictions and/or water contamination and if present, replace. On cars with fuel injection, replace the Fuel Filter every two years or 24,000 miles. A new fuel filter and labor is usually less than $50. A new fuel pump will run you at least more than four times that much!
  • Most of us know that regular oil changes are the best investment toward the longevity of our engines. However, few of us think about our Transmissions – You should regularly check the fluid with your car running and in park. For maximum performance change your transmission fluid every two years or 24,000 miles.
  • Gas Gauge Not Working? – Could be that the mechanisms are just “gunked” up. An additive placed in your gas tank during your next fuel up could render that problem solved. Call us for details!
  • Gas Mileage – Routine Tune-Ups and engine performance checks can be your best assurance of good performance and fuel economy. Proper Tire Inflation can improve gas mileage by more than 3% when maintained regularly.

  • Auto Oil Spray Rust Protection – Having the underside of your vehicle oiled can extend the life of your automobile body.
  • When Washing Your Car use only fresh water and automotive paint grade soap. Avoid using dish detergent or other household soaps. These can strip your finish of it’s original luster.
  • It’s a good idea to Wax Your Car every 4 to 6 months. When doing so, find a shady spot and avoid hot / humid days. Do your best to get one good waxing applied before the snowy season sets in.
  • You can keep your automotive finish looking its best by protecting it from tree sap, bird droppings, and other elemental issues. Do not park under trees if possible and keep your vehicle in a garage or carport for added protection.
  • Winter Car Care – Even though Jack Frost is keeping you indoors you should still find a way to wash your car at least twice a month during the winter months. The salt and calcium used on our Western Pennsylvania roads will surely cause your automotive finish and body parts to deteriorate. A run through the car wash is a sure measure of preventitive maintenance.

  • You can Wash your car anytime, but avoid high pressure and commercial car washes for at least 30 days after painting as they can damage your paint’s finish.
  • We also recommend that you wait 30 days after painting to Wax your car.
  • Rinse off any bird droppings, tree sap, road residue and other liquids as soon as possible. If necessary, use a mild (automotive paint) soap.
