How to Protect Your Car Battery from the San Antonio, TX Heat

For the locals, we know that the Texas heat is no joke. Despite the anticipation of the summertime, many drivers don't recognize that the intense heat can negatively affect our vehicles. Not only is the weather getting hotter, but heavy traffic is more frequent as well. With our cars being in the heat constantly, don't be alarmed if you have trouble starting your car during the summer. Overheating your car battery can be one of the many problems that arise with your vehicle this summer. How Hot Weather Can Impact Your Battery Your car battery and its health are critical because it is the powerhouse of your vehicle.

Will It Damage My Engine if I Continue to Drive My Car With the Check Engine Light On?

Will It Damage My Engine if I Continue to Drive My Car With the Check Engine Light On?

If you have been driving and your check engine light goes on, should you get worried? Should you continue driving with the light on? The check engine light is an indication that something is amiss with your car. It could be as simple as a loose gas cap or engine problems. Therefore, you should not ignore your engine light just because the car is still running. You may not see an immediate effect, but with time, it may cause severe damage to your car. Reasons Why Your Check Engine Light Goes on Your check engine light could illuminate due to the following reasons: Bad Oxygen Sensor The oxygen sensor tracks the amount of oxygen in your fuel system. It ensures that the engine air-fuel ratio is efficient and balanced. Otherwise, a faulty sensor leads to less air in the engine, causing your car to consume more fuel. It may also damage the catalytic converter and cause a potential spark plug. Faulty Fuel Cap A broken or faulty gas cap causes a leak in the fuel system, making the ... read more

Does My Car Really Need Fluid Exchanges?

Does My Car Really Need Fluid Exchanges?

Fluids are what keep your car lubricated so it can move efficiently. They also keep your car engine cool by transmitting heat away from it. For these fluids to perform as expected, they must be clean and of the highest quality. Unfortunately, these fluids contact contaminants like dirt that lower their efficiency and call for regular exchanges. Exchanging fluids will increase the lifespan of your car's engine and, by extension, the car itself. Some fluids that need exchanging include: Transmission Fluid The number of times to replace your transmission fluid per month or per year depends on your car's model and how you use it. The details about when transmission fluid flushes should be undertaken should be in the owner's manual. If you can't find your owner manual, you can consult a qualified technician to help flush your transmission fluid as and when necessary. Typically, transmission fluid flushes are done after the car has covered between 50,000 t ... read more

R-1234yf is a newer refrigerant that is being used in newer model vehicles.
