Summer is almost here! Will your Air Conditioning System be able to withstand the heat?

Summer Air Conditioning In Your Car   Summer is here! As the degrees on that thermostat climb and climb, make sure your car’s air conditioner can keep up with the summer heat. Ensuring that your vehicle’s A/C works properly through all kinds of weather is key to being comfortable when you travel or commute. Luckily, keeping your A/C running cool air through your car is easy to do if you swing by Gary’s Auto Service for a check-in. As vehicles age, they become prone to issues with basic systems like the A/C. If you’re debating whether or not your A/C needs work, check out these tips on malfunctioning air conditioner signs:   Full of Hot Air Possibly the most obvious sign of a damaged air conditioner is if you get warm rather than cold air flow. Even if the air is cool, but not quite as cool as you recall it flowing from previous use, that could be a sign your A/C needs attendance.   Water in the Cabin This ... read more

Which Model of Car is Best for Graduates?

Around this time of year is when the college seniors out there are just a couple weeks from sweet freedom! About to jump in head first into the adult world of full-time employment, graduate school, or maybe just a summer internship. Wherever your post-graduation trajectory is aimed, make sure you can get where you're going safely and efficiently! That involves one of those milestones of adulthood -- your first car purchase.   Sure, a hand me down from the family has carried you for the last four years, or maybe more if you were one of the independent teens who had that permit at 15.5 to the day! But with graduation, you’ve earned the upgrade. So, find a car that matched your trajectory, take a look at what we at Gary’s Auto Service think are the best options for drivers like you.   10.

Spring Cleaning Tips for your Car!

Spring Cleaning Tips for your Car!

  Spring time! Tis the season to tidy up, and that includes your car. Your trusty four-wheels have rolled through dirt and grime all year, baked on by the head and muddied up again by the rain. If you ask us, it’s about time for cars to get a well-earned bath! Here are a few ways to tidy up your car this spring.   8. Under Pressure Rarely do drivers look at, much less clean the underbelly of our cars. Early Spring is the best time to blast it with a pressure washer to prevent rust from accumulating and wash the entire undercarriage. You can also get this done at a professional car wash, but we think it’s much more for fun to pressure wash!   7. Windows This is one of the easiest, most noticeable things you can do to clean your car. It’ll improve visibility and can give your car a bit more sparkle than just a run of the mill car wash can.   6. Wax on, Wax off This is something is best done once or twice a year anyway, so why not make it ... read more

This January we’re so excited to announce that you can get a free multi-point vehicle inspection. Not only that, but all services are 10% of this month! The multi-point inspection includes a top-to-bottom check for your vehicle. We think that the best way to start off the New Year is to get to know exactly what your car needs! What’s the special occasion? Well, on January 10th it will be Mike Moehlenkamp’s 10th anniversary of owning Gary’s Auto Service! To mark the occasion, let’s take a look back at where our favorite head mechanic started. Mr. Moehlenkamp started working in automotive technology and management as a fleet supervisor for a phone company. With a stroke of luck and brilliance, his initiative to bring the phone company’s fleet service in-house proved successful, and Mike was promoted to being a supervisor of five shops! However, he came to find out that some of the phone company’s business practices weren’t his style. Late ... read more
