According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Got me in and out quickly. Fair prices.
Great service at a great price, very knowledgeable and experienced and super helpful.
Through out the years Brett has worked on our personal and our company vehicles. Always have done quality work all at fair prices.
Thanks for simple fix today on our Ram Truck and look forward to using you in the future!
A huge shout out to Brett and his garage staff for helping me this week. Had some car issues with 2 of our cars which he got right on top of. You are a life saver Brett. Seriously. Thank you.
Great service! Got me in and back on the road fast...and for a reasonable price. Will definitely recommend and return for future service.
I just picked up my car tonight and nothing but great things to say about Brett and his crew. Very helpful and taking the time to make sure I understood everything that was repaired. Affordable pricing as well! I will continue to rely on A & B auto for all my major repairs.
Great guys! Got me in the next day and got the air in my truck working great! Highly recommend them for all your auto needs.
Brett got my car in fixed it right! I had taken my car to other places, Brett found spots that other places forgot to put screws in when they did their repairs to my car. Brett is very reasonable on prices. A&B Auto Center, LLC is our new mechanic. Job well done! I can't say enough nice things about this young man. He has integrity, honesty, and is a perfectionist at his job! Highly recommend him.
Came in with a flat tire and even though clearly busy with other repairs got me in and out very quickly! Even replaced it back on the care for me! Great service!
For the past couple years I’ve had my car we’ve brought it here and Brett always does a great job for a great price, treating vehicles with care. Recently we brought my car in because it had stalled and he not only found and fixed the issue that had come up due to a careless oil change done elsewhere but checked the car for other issues and helped with those as well. A year ago, my car had stalled due to an oil issue and he came over to get it to his shop so he could work on it. Brett does great work!
Brett was great to work with! Our van had two major coolant leaks, one from the water pump and the other was from the rear heater. They needed a special part from the dealer, so they needed our van overnight. Right away they offered that I could use one of their vehicles, which was a great blessing. Overall very happy with the service and repairs.
Had one of our fleet vehicles needing some major front end work. Staff was efficient and got us back on the road in no time - for less money than we were expecting too! Highly recommend.
Great service! Brett is an awesome guy. Won't bring my vehicle anywhere else after going here.
Excellent Auto Service. Rich knows his stuff. I was in and out the same day, which was a shock to me, because I had so many things wrong with my car. My car runs great now, and the price was better than anyone else in town. Thank you for the excellent service, I know where to bring my vehicle if I have anymore problems!
