Weekly Car Maintenance Tip: "Check your tire pressure. Invest a few bucks in a tire gauge and check your tire pressure regularly (including the often-overlooked spare!) This helps to improve fuel efficiency, cut down on tire wear and tear and lets you know if your vehicle is correctly aligned."
Weekly Car Maintenance Tip: "Protect the interior plastic by parking the vehicle in the shade, using a window deflector screen, and applying a UV protectant to prevent the plastic and vinyl from drying out."
We will be closed tomorrow for Easter! Enjoy the time with your families.

Trick or treat! Happy Halloween, y'all.
It's Time For School! Get your students ready for the road by checking their car tires. First, check tires for wear and foreign objects on the sidewalls and in the treads. You are looking for cracks or any unusual bulges as well as sharp objects such as nails. Next, check tire pressures. This should be done in the morning when the tires are "cold" for the most accurate reading on a tire gauge. And the best thing is that these simple maintenance checks can be done at home! Share with all your students so they can follow a few simple steps to start the year off safe!
Here are some signs that your wheels need to be aligned: • The car feels as though it’s pulling to the left or right instead of straight ahead. • The tires are wearing unevenly. • The steering wheel is crooked. • Vibrations felt in the car or through the steering wheel at speed. Some benifits of having well aligned wheels are improved handling and gas mileage, tire wear will be reduced, and so will steering column wear. Also, check that tire warranty. Does it require you to get your wheels aligned within a certain time frame? No need to void a warranty on such a basic maintenance item. Have a great Friday!
Happy Easter, everyone!
Car care tip #4: Regular Maintenance. We know that scheduled maintenance can sometimes cost more than you’d prefer to spend, but trust us, it’s worth it. Following the appropriate service schedule in your owner’s manual prolongs the life of all the parts that make your car function, which will save you big bucks down the road. These schedules aren’t ploys to score more business for garages; they’re provided by the vehicle’s engineers as an instruction manual for keeping everything copacetic. When in doubt, don’t second-guess the folks who designed your car. And by the way, don’t ignore your check-engine light if it happens to come on! That’s an unambiguous sign that something’s wrong, and your car needs help. As with the other items on this list, taking prompt action is always advisable, even if your wallet might feel a sting in the short run.
Car care tip #3: brakes Brakes and tires have a codependent relationship: one team can’t deliver safe stopping distances unless the other’s in fighting shape. Accordingly, we recommend asking your mechanic to check your brakes every time your car’s in the shop. A visual inspection will usually suffice, so it likely won’t cost you a cent unless something’s wrong. But you should also be on high alert yourself for telltale indications of brake decline, especially squealing noises, pedal softness, and pedal vibration. Any of the above could mean that it’s time for new pads or rotors—or both.
Car care tip #2: Tires. Your tires are a huge factor in your vehicle’s ability to stop and turn effectively, so you’ve got to maintain them properly. That starts with what we promise is the last potentially hand-dirtying task on this list: checking the tire pressure every thousand miles or so, which only requires an investment of a few bucks for a tire pressure gauge and takes seconds to complete (just make sure to check the pressure when the tires are cold). Compare the pressures you record with the manufacturer’s recommendations on the doorjamb or in the owner’s manual, and add air as required. Correctly inflated tires can be the difference between slamming into the car ahead of you and stopping just short, and you’ll get better fuel economy, too. While we’re on the subject, two more tire tips: have your tires rotated regularly to promote uniform tread-wear, and if the tread dwindles down to the wear bars, order a new set immediately, as the safety risks just aren’t worth deferring the out-of-pocket cost.
Car care tip #1: Oil. The various seals in your engine will inevitably deteriorate with age, allowing oil to seep out, and that opens up a Pandora’s Box of new risks, from oil contamination to full-on engine seizure. So keep a supply of napkins or shop towels in your glove box, and try to check that dipstick—when the engine’s warm, mind you—at least 2-3 times between oil changes. If the oil level drops more rapidly than the owner’s manual predicts for a healthy engine, don’t just “top it off” with an extra quart and hope for the best. It’s imperative that you report the issue to your mechanic before it gets dire enough for the oil light to illuminate.
Happy Friday, everyone!
Q: Is there any advantage to using nitrogen instead of compressed air in tires? Will I notice improved fuel economy or a smoother ride? Will my tires last longer? A: Sort of. From the top: Air is 78 percent nitrogen, just under 21 percent oxygen, and the rest is water vapor, CO2 and small concentrations of noble gases such as neon and argon. We can ignore the other gases. There are several compelling reasons to use pure nitrogen in tires. First is that nitrogen is less likely to migrate through tire rubber than is oxygen, which means that your tire pressures will remain more stable over the long term. Racers figured out pretty quickly that tires filled with nitrogen rather than air also exhibit less pressure change with temperature swings. That means more consistent inflation pressures during a race as the tires heat up. And when you're tweaking a race car's handling with half-psi changes, that's important. Passenger cars can also benefit from the more stable pressures. Not only will that aggravating tire light stop lighting up, but your gas mileage will improve and tire wear will be reduced by as much as 30%. And there's more: Humidity (water) is a Bad Thing to have inside a tire. Water, present as a vapor or even as a liquid in a tire, causes more of a pressure change with temperature swings than dry air does. It also promotes corrosion of the steel or aluminum rim. We offer 2 levels of nitrogen service: 1). $59.95 for complete nitrogen replacement in all 4 tires. Includes nitrogen valve stem cap kit and 1 year roadside assistance. 2). $39.99 for complete nitrogen replacement in all 4 tires minus the cap kit and roadside assistance.
Looks like there are some malfunctions at the superbowl! Stop by our location and make sure your car doesn't have any. Valvoline is currently offering a $10 rebate on semi-synthetic oil changes and $15 for synthetic oil changes.
THE 10 WORST THINGS YOU CAN DO TO YOUR CAR By Mandi Woodruff | Business Insider – Fri, Jan 25, 2013 Like the human body, ignoring even the smallest signs of trouble in your car's performance can lead to trouble down the road. And some missed signals cost more than others. A new report by CarMD.com Corporation details exactly which maintenance mistakes can cause the most damage. Here are the top 10: 1. Putting off recommended / scheduled maintenance 2. Ignoring the “check engine” light 3. Not changing the oil, or not having it changed on time 4. Not checking tire pressure 5. Neglecting coolant, brake, transmission and other fluid services 6. Continuing to drive when the vehicle is overheating 7. Not changing fuel and air filters 8. Having unqualified shops service your vehicle 9. Using generic aftermarket parts instead of original equipment manufacturer (OEM)-quality parts 10. Trying to service your own high-tech vehicle The best example of the snowball effect of missed car repairs is the air filter. It costs about 20 bucks to replace, but if left alone, a dirty filter can bust oxygen (02) sensors in cars, which cost as much as $250 to replace. And when the sensor fails, you'll first see your gas mileage plunge, then possibly wind up with a $1,000 bill to replace your catalytic converter. No. 3 deserves special attention, as well. Technicians say ignoring oil changes is the "single most damaging car maintenance item that their customers neglect that they wish they could change," according to CarMD. The trouble with dirty oil is that it doesn't jive well with the high-tech engines in today's modern vehicles, according to Art Jacobsen, CarMD vice president, and can lead to engine failure if left ignored for too long.
