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. Of course, your vehicle manufacturer has a recommended service interval on how often to change your air filter. Remember like most service intervals, where and how you drive your vehicle affects when your filter should be changed. Dusty conditions around Cartersville or pollution in city driving means you'll need to change your air ... read more

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. So, if you remember your high school chemistry, you'll know that a mixture has both a higher boiling point and a l ... read more

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

Why do I need a new Serpentine Belt?

Why do I need a new Serpentine Belt?

  Any driver who understands preventive maintenance, knows that “if it ain't broke, don't fix it” is not always the best auto advice. Most of the time, replacing a part before it breaks is much more cost effective for residents than after the component has failed. A good example of this is the serpentine belt. The serpentine belt gets its name because of its circuitous path around the engine. The serpentine belt is driven by the engine and powers a number of other components and various other systems, such as: 1. The serpentine belt spins the A/C Compressor. This component contributes to the cool air generated from the air conditioning system. 2. The serpentine belt powers the alternator. The alternator generates electricity for use in the vehicle's electrical systems and to charge the battery. Without the alternator, the battery wouldn't last more than a few miles, leaving the vehicle stranded. 3. In many ... read more

Tow Safely in Cartersville, Georgia

Tow Safely in Cartersville, Georgia

Towing in Cartersville, drivers figure that anything they can attach to their trailer hitch can be towed by their vehicle. This is not the case. If you're going to do any towing, you should be aware of safety issues, Georgia towing laws and the potential liability. Understanding tow ratings is important for safe towing. A tow rating is the weight limit that your vehicle can safely tow. Manufacturers calculate the tow rating for every vehicle, but different options on the vehicle can affect that rating. Drivers need to read the towing section in their owner's manual to get the specific tow rating for the vehicle they own. Your trailer hitch also has a weight limit, and it may not match the tow rating for your vehicle. Your vehicle may be rated for 10,000 pounds (4,500 kg) but if you have a 2,000-pound (900 kg) hitch limit you shouldn't be towing more than 2,000 pounds (900 kg). If you tow a 10,000-pound (4,500 kg) trailer on that hitch, it could bre ... read more
