What is a cabin air filter? My service writer says I need one.

A cabin filter, filters out contaminates that blow into the cabin of your car or truck.  You know when you let that cool air blow right in your face and you take a deep breath, well it’s the filter that cleans that air, pretty important! This is a picture of what was caught by this filter. This may not be the norm but it is an actual filter changed in our shop.

I jump started my car now my battery light is on, what happened?

Many times we find that someone has put the jumper cables on backwards, even if it’s just for an instant.  If this happens you will have blown the main fuse, which is a problem but it would be a much larger problem if there were no fuse to protect all the components in your car. Your service center will have to replace this for you, it is normally bolted into the system so it’s not just a quick replacement.

My car has 100,000 miles on it, how long will it last?

If you do the regular maintenance on your car and take care of it by keeping it clean, keep the filters changed as the manufacture recommends, a car today can easily go 200,000 miles and more. Many times depending on how hard and where you drive you may need to perform maintenance more often. Your service center can keep you informed about this.  We even have a few customers with 300,000 miles on the cars. But it works both ways if you want to destroy a car, neglect the maintenance and many times it will fall apart around you. This is what a neglected oil filter looks like.

Why is my car shaking at 65 m.p.h?

Most of the time this will be a balance issue. many times people confuse this condition with a bad wheel alignment, but alignment won’t cause a shake. Alignment has to do with how the tires are wearing or if the car is pulling to one side or the other. Balance on the other hand has everything to do with a shake, the other thing we have to check is that the tire is not out of round enough to cause a shake.

Why is my cars battery dead after it sits for 2 or 3 days?

Most of the time we find that an interior light was left on by accident or a door was not closed completely, something simple like that. There can also be bigger problems like a bad alternator that is causing a drain on the battery, it can even be a bad battery that just can’t hold a charge any longer. If you have checked the simple things and found no lights on  you will need to go to your service center to have this checked.
