Before buying new tires, check to make sure they are the right size and type. Putting the wrong size or type of tire on your vehicle affects its handling, puts stress on the powertrain (an expensive repair), and compromises the safety systems.

Is your car taking longer than usual to turn over while starting? Well, this could be happening due to several reasons. Let our expert technicians diagnose the issue. The solution may be as simple as renewing the battery.

Why is my car being a jerk? If you car is jerking while you are driving, it may indicate a fuel pump problem. When the fuel pump fails your car won't start, and repeated tries will drain your battery. Get thee to a mechanic.

How often should you rotate your tires? About every 5,000 miles, according to experts. It will prevent uneven wear and make the vehicle handle more smoothly - and safely - and extend the life of the tires.

If your car's shocks are worn, they increase the stopping distance when you brake, as well as increasing the chances of skidding on wet surfaces. They also contribute to excessive tire wear and damage the suspension.

To extend the life of your brakes, give them a good spraying every time you wash your car. This will remove any accumulation of dust or dirt that can cause the pads to deteriorate.

If your car's engine just cranks but won't start, the first thing you're going to want to check is if there's any fuel left. If there is, then you may want to have the vehicle professionally serviced because the fault could be anything from a dead sparkplug to a faulty fuel pump.

The onboard computer on modern cars makes it practically impossible to perform do-it-yourself repairs. Besides the damage you could cause to your car's engine and its systems, you'll likely void the vehicle’s warranty.

What is oil viscosity? Oil viscosity refers to how easily oil pours at a specified temperature. Thin oils have lower viscosity (lower number) and pour more easily at low temperatures than thicker oils that have a greater viscosity (higher number).

I wish I could give him more stars. He went above and beyond my expectations and was incredibly helpful. I got rear ended and he was not only the cheapest option but he was the most honest about the damage. He got me in quickly and had my car fixed incredibly fast especially considering he had to order the parts. I was honestly shocked at how fast and great the work was. You can’t even tell I was hit. It looks brand new and I am incredibly thankful for how professional and hardworking he was. If you’re having car issues this is by far the best place to go in the area.
