Don’t Let It Go! Here’s How To Winterize Your Vehicle

Winter is coming, and we don’t just mean the season finale of Game Of Thrones. We mean the actual winter, where there is snow, and ice, and stuff like that. You know, that time of year when we have to use our credit cards to see out our windows, and where we bemoan our frozen existences while driving to our places of employment. What’s a responsible motorist to do in the face of this rude interruption to autumnal festivity?  Check all fluids. Make sure your vehicle is well lubricated: even in the winter, the coolant needs topping, the brakes need plenty of fluid, you want to check the oil, and let’s not forget the ever-present transmission.  Check tires You’d never venture into the realm of ice without good shoes, so why would you send your trusty vehicle out without good tires?

Ah Choo! Why March is the Best Time to Clean Your Air Filter

Ah Choo! Why March is the Best Time to Clean Your Air Filter

  Like people, cars need to breathe clean air. Because dirt, dust, and pollen can be taxing on your engine, it's critical to check your car's air filter. It's often neglected even though it's one of the easiest and cheapest repairs you can do on your car.   When your air filter is dirty, air can't get to the engine and this causes much more fuel to be used up. Keeping away the dirt and debris that causes wear and tear will prolong the lifespan of your engine and the amount of cash you fork over at the gas station.   Internal combustion engines require air to perform. Fuel doesn't burn without oxygen to give that igniting force that allows the engine to get powered up. The air needs to be as clean as possible for your engine to run optimally. This is why a clean air filter is essential. The filter is made of porous, paper-like material that catches and prevents dirt from reaching the engine while allowing the clean air to pass through.   ... read more

Top 10 Tips for Driving Safely at Night

October is one of our favorite months, thanks to Halloween. We love seeing the little ghosts and goblins visiting each family’s car at the annual Trunk or Treat events at our church and other churches in the Florissant area. Normally, we would write a blog on Halloween driver safety, but we thought we’d take a different approach:  The Top 10 Tips for Driving Safely at Night.   After Daylight Savings Time ends, we all have the extra hazard of driving in the dark when we get off work. Two of the biggest accident days of the year occurs when the time changes. So, let’s share some helpful safe driving tips:   Look around. Before backing out of your parking space, turning a corner, or crossing an intersection, be sure you take a good look around to avoid pedestrians, bicyclists, animals, and other distracted drivers.   Drive slowly.
