Yes it can, we see this happen more often than you might think. A bad battery will usually give you a warning, perhaps a slow crank one morning then be fine for the next few days, then you’re in a hurry your running a little late and the car won’t start. If your battery is three or four years old have it tested in south Florida that’s about the life of a battery. But if it tests good you should be safe using it a bit longer.

The thinking today is patch only, and I agree it’s the best repair you can get. Many times a tire can be run low on air and severely damage the inside but leave the outside looking fine if we just plug the tire we could send you out with a badly damaged tire. Patching is the only way to go.

No that should not be the case. It’s a good idea to have your alignment checked once a year to be sure all the suspension parts and settings are where they need to be. If the alignment is done correctly even once a year may be more then you need but to save a set of tire it’s cheap insurance.

This is a strange thing to see but it’s not all that uncommon. The window regulator breaks and the cable that holds the window up falls off and down goes the window. The repair for this is to replace the regulator, many times the regulator comes together with the motor that runs the regulator.

Many times people get away with doing that but your alternator is built to keep a fully charged battery topped of, it’s really not a battery charger. If you do try this you take the chance of over working the alternator and doing damage to the unit. It may not show up the next day but in the next few months you may be replacing it. It’s always best to have a dead battery checked and charged using a proper battery charger.

Good question, it should be checked each time the oil is changed. If your service center is doing there job they will do that. A dirty air filter will rob you of your gas mileage and can even cause damage to other fuel injection parts like the mass flow sensor.

Many times the cabin filter may be dirty, you would be amazed how fast one of these filters gets clogged. We recommend checking the filter at each service to be sure it’s clean. The cabin filter is a great addition to making the air we breath in our cars cleaner and fresher, in the past all that dirt was trapped in the system and much of it was blown in our faces.
