Car Tip of the Week: When your brake light is on, it often means that either the emergency brake is engaged or the brake fluid level is low. If your emergency brake isn’t on, check the fluid level next. If both these things are good, get it checked out at a shop.
Car Tip of the Week: Dash light basics: A red light means it’s not safe to drive – get it checked out right away. A yellow light means you can get it checked out at your soonest convenience.
Car Tip of the Week: Get a chip in your windshield filled as soon as you first notice it, so it doesn’t become a crack. Cracks are more expensive to fix, and can even result in a ticket.
Car Tip of the Week: Battery light on? Contrary to what logic would tell you, this light usually means that there’s an issue with the alternator. The light is a sign that the alternator isn’t working properly and will likely cause the battery to go dead. Stop by anytime and we’ll always test your alternator (and battery) for free.
Car Tip of the Week: How often should you replace your wiper blades? The official rule of thumb is every 6 months. The dry, hot summer months make the rubber blades cracked and brittle, and the cold, winter months can do the same. Best time of year to replace them? At the beginning of Fall and Spring.
Car Tip of the Week: Not sure how much oil to add to your engine? Add 1 whole quart when the level is at or below the “low” line. Then wipe of the dipstick and check it again. If it’s still below the “low” line, add another quart until it reads in between the “low” and “full” lines. As long as it’s within that range, you’re good to go!
