Why is my vehicle not holding coolant?

Why is my vehicle not holding coolant?

      Coolant is very important when it comes to keeping the engine on your vehicle cool. There can be a few reasons on why your vehicle is losing coolant. It can be caused by a slightly cracked hose, a hole in the radiator or issues with the water pump. A faulty coolant cap can also cause your coolant to disappear. The cap helps control the pressure within the cooling system by redirecting the coolant into the overflow tank. When the cap goes bad, it releases the coolant at a quick rate to the overflow reservoir. If you feel you may have cooling system issues give us a call and we can inspect the cooling system

What does the recirculation button do?

What does the recirculation button do?

                                                         Most vehicles have a recirculation button with the air conditioning controls in their cars. You may be questioning on when to use it; let's tell you when!  The best time to use the circulation button is during the summer on very hot days. The circulation button takes the air from inside the vehicle and recirculates it in the cab of the vehicle instead of pulling the hot air from outside.

Using the recirculation function will help keep the car cooler and keep the wear and tear down on your air conditioning system.

Why does my all-wheel-drive vehicle need the same tires?

Why does my all-wheel-drive vehicle need the same tires?

                           Why does my all-wheel-drive vehicle need the same tires? We recommend that all four tires are replaced at the same time. On all-wheel-drive vehicles the computer and differential work simultaneously to supply power to each wheel. If one of the tires is a different size than the others, the computer will take an incorrect reading and cause the differential to work too hard. If the vehicle is driven to long in this condition, it will burn out the drive train. Remember to rotate your tires to extend the life of the tires. Rotating the tires also keeps the tread wearing evenly and does not place strain on the drive train.  Give us a call today to schedule an appointment to check over your tires. Also, make a $15 donation to our school supply drive and receive a FREE tire rotation.
