Tire Basics

Whenever you’re putting a wheel onto its axle, especially with a new tire, it must be balanced to ensure even weight distribution around the axle. When we balance tires, we can see if a tire has a different weight around the wheel with a variant as small as a ¼ ounce. You may think that such a small weight difference may not create any problem while driving your vehicle but even this weights this small while traveling can create large vibrations. When these vibrations are happening to all 4 of the wheels, your vehicle can start to wobble which can dampen your driving experience and the life of your tires. In addition to making your tires wear unevenly, not having your tires balanced can lead to strain on all of the wheel bearings and your suspension system. To ensure your tires are perfectly aligned, our technicians place very light weights at various points around the […]

Tire Maintenance

Have you gotten a quick fix for one of your tires recently using a “plug” tire repair? Learn how the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) who is the tire industry’s professional group says how to best repair a flat tire:
  • Take the tire off of the wheel
  • Thoroughly inspect your tire from the inside and outside. The tire should be repaired if:
    • The puncture is <¼ inch
  • There is a puncture on the tread
  • Use a plug to repair the tire while repairing the interior lining with a patch
  • It’s not suggested to overlap repairs
  • Do not patch large holes or holes that are in the sidewall. Doing this could lead to a blowout.
Only using a plug or a patch by themselves is not the safest route for a punctured tire. To provide our clients with the safest tire repair servicing, while meeting the RMA standards, we will repair your […]

How often should I change my air filter?

Knowing when to replace your air filter largely depends on what type of driving you do and how much dirt your air filter ingests. Based on the type of driving you do will dictate how often you need to change your filter. City drivers should change their air filters every 15,000 to 30,000 miles or once a year for preventative maintenance. People that live in the country or drive on dirt roads, however, may need to change their air filters more frequently.

What is a serpentine belt?

The serpentine belt – is used to drive several components attached to the engine. It drives the alternator that powers the electrical system and recharges the battery. It also drives the power steering pump, the air conditioning compressor, and the water pump. In older vehicles, multiple drive belts were used to turn pulleys attached to these components. Most newer vehicles use a single belt; the serpentine belt to do the job.

How does the serpentine belt work?

As the engine’s crankshaft pulley turns, it drives the serpentine belt. In turn, the serpentine belt drives the pulleys for the other systems including the air conditioning, alternator, water pump, cooling fan, and power steering.

What are the symptoms related to a bad serpentine belt?

Over time serpentine belts stretch, crack, and the ribs that ride on the accessory pulleys being to wear smooth. A squealing noise is caused by the belt slipping on the pulleys. As a […]

What is a cooling system?

The cooling system helps regulate the amount of heat in the engine. For example, a typical 4- cylinder vehicle cruising along the highway at around 50 miles per hour, will produce 4000 controlled explosions per minute inside the engine as the spark plugs ignite the fuel in each cylinder to propel the vehicle down the road. These explosions produce an enormous amount of heat and, if not controlled, will destroy an engine in a matter of minutes. Controlling these high-temperatures is the job of the cooling system.

The second job of the cooling system is to maintain the engine at a constant temperature whether the outside air temperature is 110 degrees Fahrenheit or 10 below zero. If the engine temperature is too low, fuel economy will suffer, and emissions will rise. If the temperature is too hot for too long, the engine will self- destruct.

Almost all automobiles use liquid coolant to cool the engine. […]

When should I get a brake inspection?

Brakes stop the vehicle and are crucial to safe driving. Here are the signs your vehicle needs a brake inspection:

Grinding or squeaking noise when you apply the brakes. A noise when braking may be due to a problem with the brake pads. Pads are the surface of the brake, and they wear down over time. Some brake pads have built-in wear indicators that make a high-pitched warning sound when the brake pads are worn, and new pads are needed. Continuing to drive with worn-out brake pads could result in a costly brake repair.

Brake pedal feels “spongy,” and your vehicle requires longer distances to stop. If you have to press the brake pedal further or harder than usual to stop, this could be a sign that brake service may be required.

Brake warning light comes on and stays on. If the brake hydraulic system red warning light comes on and stays on, this indicates […]
