TIPS FOR COLD FREEZING WEATHER: 1. Have your engine serviced. Get your car in to an auto mechanic before the snow flies. Have the shop perform all necessary maintenance including an oil change, and have them inspect everything under the hood (and around the car as well) to make sure it’s good to go. Healthy belts, hoses and antifreeze levels are important, but so are basic necessities, like working (and effective) windshield wipers. 2. Check your tires and replace them if necessary. Tire replacement isn’t exactly cheap, but it’s absolutely critical, especially if your tires are looking old and worn. If the tread depth on your tires is nearing 2/32 of an inch, they’re getting to the end of their life – here’s a guide to determine if your tires’ tread depth is healthy. Do a quick visual inspection to check for dry rot, as old tires become brittle and lose elasticity. Putting new shoes on your car could mean the difference between safely stopping, or having a crash ruin your day, your front end, and potentially compromising yours and your passengers’ safety, so it’s a worthwhile expenditure. 3. Throw an emergency kit into the backseat. While everyone in snowy winter climes should have a simple road-trip safety kit, the key here is not to use it over the course of the entire winter. But at least if you have it in your car, you know you’ll be well equipped if something does go wrong on the road and you find yourself stuck in a snow bank. You can buy emergency winter kits for your car, or you can make your own to save some money. Make sure your kit includes the following: thermal blanket; a supply of water and dried food such as trail mix, a candy bar or some jerky; gloves; boots; a flashlight; a small shovel; a fully charged spare cellphone (even with no plan you can still dial 911 for help and get through) and a car charger; jumper cables; an emergency reflector triangle, flares; a candle with matches; a bag of sand or salt to aid traction in a pinch; and a first aid kit. If you live in or will drive through an especially snowy area, consider purchasing tire chains or AutoSock to increase tire traction and performance in snowy and icy conditions – the price is a fraction of having to call a tow truck. 4. Check your fluids. The simplest, cheapest thing you can do yourself is to check the windshield-washer fluid, to ensure you’ve got an optimal view of the road. Top it off and put an extra jug in your trunk – sand and salt spitting up from the roads means you’ll be blasting through your reserve in no time. Also have the other five important automotive fluids checked – gasoline (another easy one), oil, coolant, transmission and power-steering fluids. 5. Check your battery. Cold weather and blizzards are brutal on batteries. Car-battery capacity is reduced as temperatures plummet, so if yours is old, have it checked out. You and/or the mechanic should be on the lookout for cracks, holes or corrosion around the positive and negative terminals, and make sure your cables are well connected. If your battery isn’t sealed and your fluid is low, pour in some distilled water. And if you’ve had a few dead batteries recently, bite the bullet and just get a new one. It’s a quick, easy bit of maintenance and a small price to pay for assurance you won’t be stranded. Just as you prepare your house for the winter, stocking up on firewood and changing screens for storm windows, paying attention to the above car care tips will put you and your vehicle in a better prepared position for potential seasonal setbacks.

Happy New Year from all of us at Mario's Auto Repair!
TIP OF THE DAY: Virtually every car produced since the early 1980s contains a sensor that regulates oxygen flow to your engine. The oxygen sensor works by sending information to your vehicle’s engine management system to help your car fun efficiently as well as to reduce noxious emissions. When an oxygen sensor fails your vehicle will run less effectively and devour more fuel. Thus, when oxygen sensor failure has been determined the sensor must then be replaced, a costly proposition if you rely on a garage to do the work for you. However, replacing an oxygen sensor is a task that you can do yourself, thereby saving you precious time and money. Let’s take a closer look at just what an oxygen sensor does and the steps you can take to do the work yourself. There are some clear signs that your oxygen sensor is no longer functioning. They can include: --A rotten egg odor emitting from the exhaust. --A reduction in fuel economy. --Your catalytic converter fails unexpectedly. --Exhaust emissions reach undesirable levels. --Your engine surges or hesitates. You can diagnose the problem yourself if you have access to the right tools including a digital voltmeter, an oxygen sensor socket, and a propane enrichment device. These specific tools, along with a proper Haynes or Chilton manual by your side, should be all that you need to determine if the oxygen sensor is no longer working. If it has failed, than consider ordering your replacement part online through a reliable wholesaler such as the Oxygen Sense shop to obtain a high quality OEM part at discounted prices. Once your part has arrived than all you will need is one or two automotive wrenches to accomplish the job. Again, reference your car’s manual for exact instructions. With the abundance of sensors and technical gadgetry on today’s vehicles it can seem fairly intimidating to do the work yourself. Fortunately, an oxygen sensor is one of the easier parts to replace, so if you do the work yourself you will save time and money as well as gain an important sense of achievement. Go ahead you weekend mechanic, you can do it! GOOD LUCK! If you can't do it yourself call me @ Mario's Auto Repair 713-683-0712 By: Edwin Funez
TIP OF THE DAY...It used to be that resetting your check engine light was simple as disconnecting your battery. Today's new cars provide a challenge when trying to use this procedure. Why is your check engine light on? The check engine light or service engine soon light is directly connected to your car's computer and monitors the emission system. This warning light was federally mandated by our government to notify the driver that the vehicle may be polluting the atmosphere. If you disconnect your battery to reset your check engine light. You may erase valuable memory from the computer and wind up disabling your car stereo and factory installed alarm.BE CAREFUL!
