Christmas and COVID
Been a wild ride this year for sure. All these new words now, lock down, PPE, social distancing. We are hoping to get this one in the books for sure! Please be safe and wash your hands!! We are here to make sure your vehicle is ready to go if we even can get to go.
Time to enjoy the Fall season. Get out and see the leaves!! Get out and take a ride to nowhere!! We are here to make sure your vehicle is ready to go when you are. Now is the time to make sure your ready for the long cold nights and days ahead. Are your headlights bright enough to see or are they faded and cloudy? We can make your headlights better, brighter and you will see better. Wiper blades also, need to wipe that dew off the windshield in the morning!! Streaking, choppy movement, smearing are all signs that they are shot. New wipers will improve your vision during those damp dew filled mornings still to come. Hey!, it is Fall in Maryland, we know to expect the unexpected!!!

BACK TO SCHOOL!
Warm days ahead!
Getting your A/C system serviced now is best. As the temperature rises, so does the price on A/C parts. Getting your system checked before the heat sets in might save you some cold hard cash. Don't wait until it is too late, get your A/C checked now. 10% off all A/C services and repairs until the end of MAY.
APRIL!! The first month of SPRING!! You know what that means!?!? Pollen!! Lots of it too! This is the time of the year to replace your cabin air filters. A clogged filter can really hurt the performance of the climate control system. These filters are designed to filter particles down to 0.3 microns! That means it can trap mold and bacteria plus pollen. SO to make sure your ready for the green and not inhaling pollen,dust and dander, get your cabin filter checked and replaced if needed.
Mice make money?
Those cute little rodents! They chewed the fuel line on top of the fuel tank. Had to remove exhaust, drive shaft and the entire rear end and frame to lower the fuel tank. Mr. Mouse cost the customer a little over $1300.00 to repair. They also chewed up the washer bottle hose to the windshield, guess they wanted to wash out the gasoline from their mouths. A little Cayenne pepper sprinkled around under the hood and where you park could help prevent this. Be sure to get all your fuel and brake lines checked when your vehicle is in for service. Be observant if you see any droppings under the hood or notice the ketchup packets in the glove box are chewed up, you may have mice. They also enjoy the wiring on newer vehicles as the insulation around the wires is made with a SOY based plastic. Yum!
Customer complaint: Anti-Lock Brake Light on and a burning smell. We technicians see many things. This was a first for us. A wig. Somehow this customer ran over a wig and it wrapped around the rear CV shaft. It pulled the axle out of the rear end enough to allow gear oil to leak out getting on the exhaust resulting in the burning smell. This also caused the ABS light as the sensor could not read the tone ring. No damage to anything. Axle went right back in after we removed the wig. Added fluid to the rear and cleared the code. We shared a good laugh with the customer, and it will go into the weird things we find box. Work days are never boring.
How much does your shop really care? It is little things that make the difference. Like wiping down door gaskets with silicone spray to prevent them from freezing shut. Making sure the washer solvent is the winter type to prevent freezing. Little things that many do not notice but we do to ensure safety and reliability.
