At Poirier’s Service Center we no longer plug tires. Around the nation there have been law suits because tires that have been plugged have blown out and caused serious accidents, from the outside a tire may look fine but if it has been run low on air it can become damaged inside. The picture shows a tire that looked great on the outside but when we broke it down to repair it we found a badly damaged side wall and an unsafe tire.

First you need to be sure you have the correct blades for your car just because they fit won’t always mean they are right for you car. Another thing is there are a lot of pollutants in the air that collect on your winds shield you may need to use a glass cleaner and clean the glass manually to remove the build up.

That would be unusual to have all the windows stop at the same time, each door has its own motor. What happens a lot of times is the window lock button accidentally gets pushed, this locks out the other windows. Check that button first, perhaps that’s all you need to do.

Well the ride is over for another year. another great turn out 500 riders 140 volunteers and most of all $50,000.00 raised to help orphans here and around the world. thanks to all that helped to raise money to help these kids. My son and I rode again this year, a lot of fun for a great cause.
As we have said before cars today are very complicated, the best thing to do is head right to you certified service center and have it tested with the proper equipment by a certified technician. A warning, if anyone tells you to start the car and remove one of the battery cables to see if the engine keeps running, don’t do it! they may tell you if the engine keeps going that the alternator is good, not so. And even more importantly you can damage one or more of the very expensive computers in your car.

Well that’s a good question. Of course it depends how you drive, are you a person that runs up on a light and gets on the brakes hard, if so you can expect to get fewer miles out of a set of brakes. Average is 35,000 miles. some people will get as much as 60,000 and some 25,000. It’s a good rule to have the brakes checked every other oil change to be sure you are safe.
