Bellingham Holiday Auto Repair

Posted by Jason on December 16, 2015 at 2:55 AM


Is Your Car in Good Condition?

This is a list of some things you should check and get fixed so you will be ready when you want to pack up and head for the snow!

Batteries are much weaker in cold weather, so keep your vehicle’s battery fully charged.

Brakes should be checked and serviced if necessary. Even braking on all four wheels will lessen the chance of skids on slippery roads.

Exhaust = Make sure your vehicle’s exhaust system has no leaks. Carbon monoxide is a silent killer and can accumulate quickly in closed vehicles.

Wiper Blades = Make sure your wiper blades are in good condition. Keep the windshield washer reservoir filled with antifreeze solvent.


Cooling System = Check the radiator, heater core and all hoses that carry anti-freeze solution to see that they are in good condition and free of leaks. Also check to see that the solution is good to at least 40 below zero.

Oil = Make sure you have winter weight oil (usually 5W-30) in the engine.

Tires = should have M+S or All Season tread and be in good condition.

•Emergencies can happen when you least expect them, so be sure to carry a winter survival kit in your vehicle.

Veterans Day

Posted by Jason on November 11, 2015 at 10:35 AM


History of Veterans Day

World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” - officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

 Your vehicle has hundreds of moving parts all working together. Through normal driving, over time, some of these parts simply wear out or no longer perform the way they should.

To make sure that your vehicle is running at its best, your vehicle manufacturer recommends that certain parts and systems are checked at certain intervals. By following their recommendations, more costly repairs down the road may be avoided.


 Repairs are services that are required or necessary when something on your vehicle is not working properly. Also, when your vehicle has worn to the point where a replacement is required to maintain the performance of your vehicle.

The schedule for performing these maintenance services varies from vehicle to vehicle. You will find the schedule for your vehicle in your owner's manual. Following this schedule is the best way to make sure your vehicle is performing as it should.

 We offer Maintenance Services that follow the schedule as recommended in your owner's manual.

 Checking the CV Joint should be part of your Regular Maintenance .

CV Joint Failure
Constant velocity joints (CV joints) are found on many cars and even some trucks.
Though vehicle manufacturers are reintroducing rear-wheel drive on more new cars, over 80 percent of all the cars on the road today are front-wheel-drive, and every one has four CV joints.
The outer CV joints are usually the ones that most often need to be replaced.
There are two reasons, one is that the outer CV joints wear more than the inner
CV joints, The outer boots on the outer joints are more apt to fail than the ones on the inner joints.

CV Joint boots
A boot failure is bad news for any CV joint because it dooms the joint to premature failure. A spit, cracked loose or torn boot will throw grease, draining the joint of its vital fluids = lubricants. Sooner or later the joint will run out of Lubricant, which is a bad thing for the metal-to-metal surfaces. They must withstand height pressure loads and constant friction. A boot that doesn’t seal can also allow outside contaminants, such as road splash and dirt, to enter the joint and havoc havoc on its precision machined and polished surfaces. If the boot problem isn’t discovered almost immediately, joint failure will usually follow within a few thousand miles.

Some symptoms of CV Joint failure:

1) Popping or clicking noises when turning.
2) A clunk sound when accelerating, decelerating or when putting the car into drive.
3) A vibration or shudder when accelerating.
4) A growling or humming noise.

Jeep in Bellingham

Posted by Jason on July 15, 2015 at 12:10 PM Comments comments (0)



No one can say with certainty where the name "Jeep" first came to mean the all-wheel-drive truck the U.S. Army needed urgently for World War II. Theories include Oklahoma oilman slang, a dimension-jumping character from a "Popeye" cartoon and the shortening of the letters G and P -- from the "general purpose" vehicle requested by the Army. There's even one photo from testing in 1941 that calls it a "peep." Wherever it came from, the Jeep knew where it was headed by Aug. 1, 1941 -- off to war.

The Jeep was born from a bid by the U.S. Army for a small, all-terrain vehicle with four-wheel-drive. Developed in just seven weeks, with bits of design from three different automakers, Detroit eventually built more than 1 million for victory in World War II. Ernie Pyle called the Jeep "as faithful as a dog, as strong as a mule and agile as a goat." After the war, Willys-Overland sold them as glorified farm implements, complete with a power takeoff hitch. The rest you know. Here's an example of the excitement from the Jeep's birth, as it goes through testing around Ford in the winter of 1941.
