My car won’t start, I checked the battery and found a lot of corrosion at the terminals. What should I do?

When you find a lot of corrosion around the terminals you need to move back a few steps, this can indicate an acid leak from around the post of the battery. Even through you can’t see them there may be fumes leaking around the post and these are explosive if you make a spark you can get hurt very badly , have your car towed to your service center and let one of the technicians take care of this for you.

If my car Drifts when driving do I need an alignment?

Yes you may need an alignment, and most likely that’s all you will need. If your service center is doing their job they will perform a complete suspension inspection to be sure there are no worn parts, this can also cause a drift or unstable feeling. You should have the alignment checked each year to get the best tire life and to keep your car safe and stable on the road.

How often do I need to replace my wiper blades?

In south Florida you may need to replace them twice a year and some times more than that. The sun just tears them up. And most frustrating is no one checks their blades until its raining and you turn them on and find they don’t work very well. At Poirier’s service center we always check the blades at each oil change to be sure you are ready for the rain. In the worst case the metal part of the blade can scratch the windshield.

I have some oil leaking from my car, it’s not bad should I have it checked?

Yes even if it’s a small amount these things have a way of getting worse fast, and you can find yourself with serious engine damage if you run your engine low on oil.  Many times it’s not as bad as you may think to repair. Engines today are much tighter then they used to be so major oil leak issues and not very common. It may be an oil pressure sensor or valve cover leaking and these are much less expensive than an engine.

My engine light stays on for 2 days then goes off then back on again, whats going on?

The engine light can come on for many reasons, after the light comes on, every time you start the engine your car runs a test on its own to see if the failure is still there if it can’t see the problem anymore it turns the light off. You should still stop by your service center to have this checked many times even if the light is off we can get some info to help diagnose the problem.

Veterans day is Saturday. Thank you men and women of the American armed forces.

I for one am thankful for the freedoms I enjoy in America. Yes we have problems but nothing even close to what most of the rest of the world has.  Our freedoms have been fought for and many men and women have died protecting us, we can argue about right and wrong, and those are valid arguments but what I know is I am free! So at least for this one day Saturday November 11th 2017 thank a veteran for their service, At Poiriers service center  show us your military I.D. card and receive 10% off your entire bill now thru Thanksgiving, And thank you for your service.

I’m heading North for thanksgiving should I have my car checked before I go?

It’s always a good idea to have an inspection on your car before a trip, fluids, tire pressures, brakes just to be as sure as you can that you will have no problems on the road. Correct tire pressure can save gas and make your tires last longer. We are always worried about our coolant in Florida but when you go north you need to be sure your covered for freeze ups as well.
