Automotive Tips of the
Engine! Change Your Timing Belt!
Timing belts are unseen and often forgotten. But if your timing belt
breaks, it can result in serious damage to your engine. Most
manufacturers recommend changing your timing belt every 60,000 miles,
but some vehicles can go longer. If you are unsure, just give us a call
and we can confirm that for you.
From now until December 30, 2010, if you need your timing belt changed,
schedule an appointment with us and mention this article; we will deduct
$25 from your invoice!
Heavy Keys Can Mean an Auto Repair Bill...
Take a look at the key ring you are using to hold your vehicle's ignition key. How
many other keys do you have hanging there? More than 5 or 6? Do you have charms,
a flashlight, perhaps a bottle opener on the ring? How about the mini
plastic scan cards from all the stores you frequent? Your childs photo?
A cute, stuffed animal? Itís amazing how many of us, use our key ring as
a place to collect mementos and other gadgets we are fond of or want to
have immediate access to.
Having a large and heavy key ring may make it easier to find in your
purse, but there is a critical down side. Over time, that heavy key ring
swaying to and fro from your ignition, will wear down the tumblers in
the lock and cause problems with starting your car. The worst case
scenario is when your car wonít start at all. .
The best way to solve this potential problem is to keep your ignition
key on a detachable ring from your other keys and paraphernalia. That
way, when you get in your vehicle, you can simply detach the key for use
while you are driving. More and more vehicles today use the remote keys,
but if you still have to put your key in an ignition slot, be mindful
of the weight of your key ring and the possible damage it can cause. The
cost to replace your ignition tumblers is not cheap, but something you
can easily avoid.
Traction comes from your tires
gripping the road. No grip, no traction. Traction is important not just
for stability but for steering and braking as well. Tires are among the
most important and least understood components of your vehicle. Proper
inflation, the differences between snow and all season tires, tire and
tread types, it can be confusing to the average driver. However,
Guaranty Auto in conjunction with Vianor Tire, is here to help. We can
explain all these things and help you select the right tires for your
vehicle. Stop into or telephone either location for a tire quote and
