It's still August, and still Brake Safety Month. Remember, it's one thing if your car doesn't start or run properly, but quite another if it doesn't stop! We invite you in for a brake inspection, especially if you're experiencing any of the signs spotlighted by the Car Care Council.
This is kind of cool.
It’s one thing if your car doesn’t run like it should, but quite another if it doesn’t stop! Don’t ignore these symptoms.
August is Brake Safety Awareness Month. What better time to come in for a routine brake inspection?
Did you know that there has been a family on the Moon for over 40 years? Well, a picture of a family. Astronaut Charles Duke left this family photo on the Moon. Now, who knows what Apollo mission this was?

WHAT IS IT??? This is what a cylinder head gasket leak looks like from the inside. This pic was captured using a fiber optic camera called a boroscope. The customer’s complaint was overheating and rough running. The green blob is antifreeze leaking into the cylinder. Proper cooling system maintenance reduces the risk of this kind of failure.
Dash warning lights are NOT to be ignored. When one comes on, it’s your car’s way of telling you that something needs to be checked. Here’s a list of common dash warning lights and what they mean. If you have any questions or concerns, call us, stop by, or message us through our FB page. We want you ON the road, not stranded alongside of it this summer.
Does your car have a “pup” holder? :o)
Does summer heat wear you down? It takes a toll on your car’s battery too. Contrary to popular belief, summer highs rather than winter lows pose the greater threat to battery life. The Car Care Council article linked below has some good tips for extending the life of your battery.
YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE. IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU'VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM. Bill L. Words from a good friend!!
Check these out.
Please note that we will be closed tomorrow July 4th.

SERIOUSLY… The average reaction time of an ALERT motorist (the time between seeing a danger and reacting to it) is ¾-seconds. At 50-mph your car will travel 55-feet in that ¾-seconds. If the distraction from texting (or anything else for that matter) delays your reaction by even another ¾-seconds, you’ll have traveled 110-feet BEFORE you even apply the brakes.
No one likes to see these lights come on, but when they do, check your Owner's Manual and follow its advice. Waiting to do repairs can be costly and even dangerous.
Ever use one of these?
A good visual of how Antilock brakes work.
Q: Why can’t I use plain water in my radiator? A: Plain water will start a rust process that is almost impossible to stop. Rust particles deteriorate the water pump, radiator, hoses, and thermostat. Antifreeze mixed with water at a 50/50 ratio protects the system from corrosion AND provides proper freeze and boiling protection. Too much antifreeze can cause heat transfer problems which can result in overheating. BTW, if you experience overheating, turn the A/C off and the heater on to help remove heat from the coolant. If the engine temperature light comes on or the gauge goes into the red zone, the engine should be turned off quickly and allowed to cool down to avoid costly engine damage.
