As it has been bitter cold here in Wisconsin the last thing we want is no heat. There is a few reasons that can cause the vehicles heat to blow cold. Some repairs are a little easier then others. The vehicles coolant level being low can cause the vehicle blow cold air. The coolant in the engine does not just work to keep the engine from overheating. It is also the source of heat supporting the heating system. Another issue could be the thermostat not working correctly. When the thermostat can not signal the engine being warm, the coolant won't be passed over to provide heat to the heater core and the air will blow cold. Heater cores are cooling system that look like little radiators. They are made up of little metal tubing that carries the hot coolant in and out. It is not the best time to have cold air blowing on us. If you feel your heat is not working to your standards call us today. We will be happy to assist you with getting your heat running in tip top shape.&nb ... read more

It is very important that the tires on your vehicle are in great shape. Tires are on the only contact your vehicle has with the roadway. As we are approaching the snowy season in Wisconsin, we never know what to expect weather wise. We know the first snow fall is near and this is our reminder to you to check the condition of your tires. There can be tread depth indicators found on most tires. These tread depth indicators are not able to be seen when the tires are new. Bars running perpendicular to the tread will start to show themselves as the tire tread gets low. If you notice the tread depth indicators, your tread depths are too low and you should replace your tires. Another way you can check the tread depth, believe it or not, is with a penny. To determine if your tires are low on tread, place the penny in your tread with Lincoln's head pointed down. If you can see the top of his head, the tire tread is low and new tires should be purchased in the near ... read more
