Your engine wants clean air too!

Your engine wants clean air too!

Your engine wants clean air too! Did you know? - Your vehicle uses 12,000 times as much air as fuel when you drive it? That's a lot of air to be filtered to keep your engine running clean. That is the sole purpose of the engine air filter. That's like 100 gallons of air every block! The engine air filter is just another example of a very important but inexpensive part that has to do a tremendous amount of work. When it does it job filtering the air, everything goes well but when it gets clogged, it doesn't go well, it can lead to serious problems.

Keep Your Cool!

Keep Your Cool!

  Drivers rely on their vehicle's coolant system to keep their engine cool. Coolant (also called antifreeze) mixed with water flows through your vehicle engine and absorbs heat. The mixture then flows out to the radiator where it's cooled by air flowing over the radiator. From there the coolant/water mix circulates back through the engine to absorb more heat. There's a reason we mix coolant and water. Water alone actually does a good job transferring heat from the engine. The problem is that water boils at a temperature that's easily reached inside your vehicle's engine, so it can turn to steam which does not conduct heat as well and is harder to contain. Also, if it's freezing outside in Cartersville, the water in your engine could freeze while your vehicle is sitting out in the Ga cold.

Stop It! You Need Good Brakes

Stop It! You Need Good Brakes

  Good brakes are obviously very important. If you've ever had your brakes go out while you're driving around the Cartersville area, you'll know how terrifying it can be. Today we'll focus on how to tell when you have a brake problem and how to make good repair choices. Often, the first indication that something's wrong with the brakes is an unusual sound. It could be a squeal, chatter or grinding sound. Some brake pads have a little piece of metal embedded in them that will make a squeal or chirping sound when the brake pads have been worn down to the point that they need to be replaced. It's an early warning indicator. When you hear that sound, schedule an appointment at Best Auto Repair Experience soon. Now a chattering sound is more urgent. That usually indicates that something is loose. It could be a brake pad or even the brake calipers. If one of those parts falls off, you could have some serious t ... read more
