5 Reasons Why You Should Wax Your Car

5 Reasons Why You Should Wax Your Car

Regardless of how often you wash your car to keep it clean, it would be best if you still gave it a good wax. Without wax, you may find it more challenging to maintain a shiny exterior over your car's lifetime. However, if you wax your vehicle routinely, your vehicle will stay looking brand new. Besides aesthetic benefits, what are the other pros of waxing your car?    Scratch-Protection Wax is made of a mixture of chemicals, including petroleum distillates, natural oils, and other components that help solidify the resin on your vehicle's paint. This advantage is one of the top reasons why people sought after a wax. Hides Existing Imperfections Wax can also help hide any pre-existing imperfections that your car may already have on its exterior. Though the wax can't 100% make all your scratches and dents disappear entirely, it can fill in shallow scratches and make them blend in. Makes It Easier to Clean Most people overlook this pro, but wax makes your car ... read more

Why Eating & Driving is Not a Good Combo

Why Eating & Driving is Not a Good Combo

America lives and breathes on fast food - there's one every on every corner. With easy access and the creation of the drive-thru window, grabbing food and eating it in the car can be super tempting. Though there's no shame in enjoying your burger, tacos, or doughnuts, you should avoid doing it behind the wheel. Eating and driving at the same time pose more hazards than you think. Multiple organizations have conducted studies that show eating is as distracting as texting or calling while driving. Here are three simple reasons why you should never eat while operating a motor vehicle:   1) Eating Requires Atleast One Hand Off the Steering Wheel Most meals come packaged in a bag or wrapper that you must uncover. Right off the bat, you'll need to take a hand (or two) off the wheel. Not to mention, you might have to grab silverware or napkins in addition to munching down your meal. There's no easy or safe way to eat any food while driving as eating demands your attent ... read more

Transmission Repair vs. Replacement vs. Rebuild

Transmission Repair vs. Replacement vs. Rebuild

Your transmission is the part of your car that moves the power from the engine to your wheels. Like other parts of the vehicle, your transmission also requires regular maintenance to perform well. While there are numerous ways your transmission can signal trouble, the main ones are warning lights, fluid leaks, and a burning carpet smell. If you experience any of these symptoms, take your car to the auto shop pronto.    We can do three possible operations to fix your transmission: repair, replacement, and rebuild. Transmission Repair A transmission repair is the least expensive approach of the three. Repairs are to fix more minor damages with the transmission. This type of job includes fixing specific components, in-car repairs, various modifications, and resealing. Transmission repairs do not require the system to be reassembled entirely. This type of service is also not an option for transmissions with severe damages. Your mechanic will assess the condition of your trans ... read more

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

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. It helps power your engine upon start-up and serves to keep electricity flowing through your car. The structure of your car's battery is much like a battery you use at home, like a AAA battery in the sense that your battery runs on battery acid.    The hot weather does, in fact, cause your battery's acid to dissipate faster. Unfortunately, the de ... read more

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
