Car Maintenance. Is it time? Utah

Posted by D on August 1, 2022 at 8:10 PM

The Dirty air Filter

Do You need a new Filter?

Well, 

      Sometimes, your mechanic is talking about the engine air filter, which keeps dust and debris away from essential moving parts, and sometimes the mechanic is referring to your cabin air filter, which is attached to the car's HVAC system and cleans air coming in through the vents to the passenger and driver.

     In both cases, the mechanic tells you just how dirty your filter is and then shows it to you. Inevitably, it will be black and dusty, and a few smacks loosen built-up debris.  Always make sure the filter you're seeing is the one from your car and know when your filters need replacement. Cabin air filters, for example, should be replaced every 15,000 to 20,000 miles and are usually found in the glove box or under the dash of the passenger front seat. If your windows are getting filmy or you have a cabin smell it might be time to change them.  

Finding a reputable, licensed mechanic helps you sidestep  scam's. 

The importance of good records

Most owners don't use it, but the owner's manual for your vehicle has a handy tracking sheet for recording when your oil changes were completed and at what mileage, along with reminders for other service work such as tire rotations or transmission flushes. 

Beyond the manual, it's just as critical for you to keep good records of any work done to your vehicle. This way, if a mechanic tries to overcharge you for car repairs you'll see it coming. You'll know exactly what kind of oil you need, when your air filters were changed and what type of work has been done to your car over its lifetime.

Happy record Keeping and thank you for your support from:

Fuel Saving tips - Complete Auto Repair Service - Utah

Posted by D on July 30, 2022 at 8:50 AM

 

Fuel Saving Tips 

What will help you keep your mileage down?

1) Keep your engine in proper mechanical condition with
    tune ups, clean air and fuel filters, good belts & hose.
2) Change the oil and keep it filled.
3) Keep your tires properly inflated, check them frequently for wear.
   Have them properly align the vehicles suspension and steering
   ( if you notice pulling or vibration.)
4) Have your Brakes checked.
5) Body damage on a car can add drag so try to have damage
    repaired.
6) Find a gas station that uses non ethanol gas.
7) Have your gas cap checked.. (approximately. 17% of the vehicles have a
    gas cap that is either damaged, loose, or missing. This can
    cause gallons of gas to vaporize.

Driving Tips

1) Try not to idle your engine for long periods.
    ( turn engine off if you leave the car or have to wait.)
2) Stop slow, Start slow & steady.
3) Slow steady speed.  Use cruise control for long trips. 
4) Keeping windows closed helps make the car more aerodynamic.
5) Carpool whenever possible or practical.
6) Empty the trunk!  Added weight decrease fuel economy.
7) Plan your route wisely and run more than one errand in your outing.
 

Have fun on your adventure!

Tune UP & Tires In Carbon County Utah CARS

Posted by D on July 20, 2022 at 9:45 PM
Tune UP and Tires

We have a great new shop and we are ready to help get you back on the road. 
Tune Up : Regular vehicle maintenance and inspections can help improve a vehicle's fuel efficiency, achieve peak performance and even help avoid major repairs down the road.
                 Check List:   Oil Change
                                       Batteries
                                       Filters
                                      Tires
                                      Belts, Hose, Brakes
                                      Suspension

Tires : Checking your tires is crucial in the summer. Long road trips with large loads and high temperatures can stress them to the max.
          The minimum acceptable tread depth is 3/32 inch. This is about the distance from the edge of a penny to the top of Abe's head. But, if you are leaving on a trip, you wouldn't want the minimum tread.

 

          While you're looking at the tire tread, keep an eye out for an uneven wear pattern. “Uneven” means the tire is more worn on one edge. This usually means you need a wheel alignment. Also, run your fingers along the tread and feel for lumps. The presence of lumps could mean that the tire is not balanced correctly.

CARS = Complete Auto Repair Service encourages motorists to bring their vehicle in for a multi-point vehicle inspection this spring. The inspections help identify service items that can help vehicles run better and better, last longer, and retain their value.  We also have a diesel Mechanic on sight.

Clutch Repair at CARS Auto Repair Utah

Posted by D on July 15, 2022 at 5:20 PM

Clutch Repair  Utah

The clutch in your vehicle works by applying force against a flywheel mated to your engine using a clutch disc and pressure plate. The clutch is made of friction material and is designed to "grab" the flywheel as it turns. 

 Over time, your clutch disc will wear down and begin to slip. When this happens, you will have trouble accelerating in any gear because the clutch will lose the ability to "grab" the flywheel. At this point, the clutch disc will need to be fixed.  

 Come See the experts at Complete Auto Repair Service = C.A.R.S.  to help you diagnose your clutch problems and get your car back on the road.

Radiator Repair - Utah - CARS,

Posted by D on July 1, 2022 at 5:00 PM

RADIATOR REPAIR

     Most people know the green stuff in your radiator keeps your engine from turning into a block of ice in the winter, but did you know that it also helps keep things cool in the summer? All too often people are driving around with just water in their radiator because they think they don't need the green stuff until it gets cold. 

     Radiator coolant actually raises the boiling point of the water, allowing it to carry more heat away from the engine, and that means cooler running. If you're running low, things can get steamy fast.

     Luckily it only takes a second to check your coolant level. Most cars these days have an opaque coolant overflow tank right next to the radiator. It's white plastic, but you can see inside to see if there's enough juice to keep things safe. You'll also see markings on the side telling you the low and high levels to work with. Always check your coolant level when the car is cold.

     If your levels are good, no need to go any further, enjoy the peace of mind. But if you're low, you'll need to top it off. Your engine takes a 50/50 mixture of coolant and water. In the old days, you had to make measurements yourself and test the mixture to get it right. But since we live in the age of convenience, you can now buy premixed coolant that's ready to pour. For a simple topping off, I recommend going this route. It might cost a buck more, but you're in for much less mess.

:)The best way to prevent over heating is doing regular maintenance on your vehicle.

If your engine is overheating shortly after you leave, or it heats up even on short trips, you should check the following possible causes and repair suggestions.

Possible Causes:

1.Engine coolant level may be very low.

The Fix: Refill coolant to proper level.

2. Engine's drive belts may be broken or slipping.

The Fix: Tighten or replace belts.

3. The electric cooling fan may not be coming on.

The Fix: Repair or replace cooling fan. Repair wiring. Replace cooling fan temp sensor.

4. The ignition timing may be set wrong.

The Fix: Adjust ignition timing.

5. There may be a vacuum leak.

The Fix: Check and replace vacuum lines as required.

6. The engine may have mechanical problems.

The Fix: Check compression to determine engine condition.

7. The engine's thermostat may be stuck closed.

The Fix: Replace thermostat.

8. There may be a leak in the cooling system.

The Fix: Repair leak and refill coolant. Cylinder head gasket(s) may be bad.

The Fix: Replace cylinder head gasket(s).

Tire Repair - CARS = Complete Auto Repair Service

Posted by D on June 30, 2022 at 8:45 AM

Tire Repair
in Utah
We can mount and Balance 

CARS = Complete Auto Repair Service

You should check the condition of your tires' treads.

The minimum acceptable tread depth is 3/32 inch. This is about the distance from the edge of a penny to the top of Abe's head. But, if you are leaving on a trip, you wouldn't want the minimum tread.

While you're looking at the tire tread, keep an eye out for an uneven wear pattern. ?Uneven? means the tire is more worn on one edge. This usually means you need a wheel alignment. Also, run your fingers along the tread and feel for lumps. The presence of lumps could mean that the tire is not balanced correctly.

Make sure that you have the correct tire pressure in all five tires.

What constitutes correct tire pressure?

All Tires are different and have the recomended tire pressure on the side of the tire. You can also us what your vehicle manufacturer recommends, which should be listed on the side of the driver's door, on the glove compartment door, or in the owner's manual.

Don't confuse the ?maximum tire pressure? listed on the sidewall of the tire with the ?recommended tire pressure? provided by the manufacturer of the vehicle.

Remember that tire pressure will increase as the outside air temperature rises. In fact, tire pressure will go up approximately one pound for every 10 degrees Fahrenheit. So, tires that were at 35 PSI back in January when you drove to the slopes could easily be closing in on 45 pounds on a hot July day. Under some conditions that increase in pressure is enough to blow the tire! If nothing else, a tire that's overinflated will wear prematurely and will cause the car to handle and brake poorly.

You also have to remember friction. As you drive, there's friction between the tires and the road. Friction means heat--and heat means an increase in tire pressure. So, here's what to do about your car's tire pressure: Check the tire pressure before you start driving. If the recommended pressure is 35 PSI, for example, it means 35 PSI before you start driving. If you check the tire pressure when you stop to get gas two hours later, it will be much higher than 35 PSI. If you check it at this point?after you've been driving--there is no way to know what the correct tire pressure should be. You'll be tempted to let air out of the tires, because the tire pressure will be greater than 35 PSI. Do not do this, because the tires will be under inflated.

JEEP'S

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.

WHY IS MAINTENANCE IMPORTANT?

 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.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS?

 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.

Animals in the Engine - CARS = Complete Auto Repair Service

Animals  In Your Car   

      I thought I would share some information regarding animals nesting in cars. You most likely will not know you have this problem unless something smell like it's cooking/ burning or someone has opened the hood of your car and shared this with you, a Squirrel decides to store your garden produce or you have had a animal related problem with your car before.
     The little critters can cause literally thousands of dollars in damage in a very short period of time. What you generally will find is anything from animal droppings, wire insulation chewed through, under hood sound insulation ripped away from the underside of the hood and stored on the engine, dog food stored under hood, damage to plastic or rubber components or the worst is when they get into the cars heating/air conditioning system and die.
     See Below for Idea's to help keep your car from having a critter problem.

Leave the hood up. Rodents are looking for a dark place to nest. This idea could help discourage nesting, but may not be the ultimate solution.

Hide your dog food, cat food, and birdseed. Dog food is the gold standard of rat society. Rats will stuff pounds and pounds of it into the air cleaner, glove compartment, or other empty spaces in your car.

Remove or seal off rat hiding places near the car. Cut down nearby thick shrubbery and vines where they can hide. If you have a garage, block rat-sized entrances to the building, or spray openings with substances that rats hate (see below).

Block small entrances to the vehicle engine compartment. Some car owners place traps around the vehicle or on top of the wheels, since rats climb wheels to get into the engine. Some block engine openings with wire screen.

Use electronic deterrent devices. Rodents can hear ultrasounds that we cannot, and it annoys them. Some learn to ignore it. Those with strobe lights like Mouse Blocker or Rid-a-Rat may work for longer periods, as they disrupt the darkness that rats prefer.

Make your engine and its entrances smell bad, at least to rats. Motorists have had success with peppermint oil, powdered fox urine, used cat litter, cat hair, dog hair, Pine-Sol, Irish Spring soap, red pepper, and laundry dryer sheets. The people who make "Rataway" tell you to spray it on all the wires in the engine.

Do not let the car sit unused. Drive it once in a while to discourage rats from doing mechanical or electrical work.

Finally: use traps to remove the rats who get through. The old-fashioned snap traps still work. Glue traps work too but may torture the rat. Humane cage traps may work, but relocating the varmints can be a temporary fix.. Toxic baits do kill rats eventually, but are likely to also poison predators, including domestic animals and pets.

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.
