Your drive belts are simple but integral components to the function of your car, truck, or SUV. At Mercie J Auto Care in Mesa, belts are one of the first things we assess when looking over a vehicle, as they alone are in charge of operating your AC, water pump, alternator, and power steering.
Cold weather is difficult. It’s hard on us, and it’s hard on your car - and it’s never colder than when you’re sitting in a broken-down vehicle waiting on a tow truck. Luckily, Mercie J Auto Care in Mesa, AZ has some advice on the matter, to make sure you avoid a breakdown this winter.
Summer’s coming, and with it, warmer temperatures, vacations, and longer trips. We don’t want to be downers, but if your car’s cooling system isn’t up to par, things could go from fun-in-the-sun to stranded-in-the-sun too quickly for anyone’s liking. Because the truth is: cooling system failure is a leading cause of vehicle breakdowns.
Don’t let it come to that. The easiest way to make sure your summer plans stay on course is to pay attention to your vehicle’s cooling system now, while the weather’s still mild. Trust us, you’ll avoid a lot of aggravation, and possibly an unnecessarily expensive vehicle repair. Here’s how to maintain your cooling system.
All of us have those days when we’ve got a bunch of errands to run. Suppose on your day off you need to get gas, pick up some groceries, swing by your ATM and get the kids from school. Now you could make four trips, but that would be a waste of time and money – totally inefficient. Instead you get organized and hit the ATM first and get some gas next. Then you go to the supermarket and pick up the kids on the way home. Way better use of your time.
