Benefits of a Transmission Flush

Benefits of a Transmission Flush

A transmission flush is a process of removing grime, sludge, and old transmission fluid from a car's transmission and then adding fresh, clean fluid. This procedure lubricates and cools the automatic transmission. The transmission system is designed to safely and smoothly transfer power to the wheel from the engine. By keeping the system in good condition, you'll protect your car against severe damage. Here are the top three benefits of a transmission flush: Prevent Problems With Transmission Preventing problems with the transmission is perhaps the most crucial benefit of a transmission flush. Over time, your transmission fluid will collect dirt and other foreign particles to prevent it from performing its function. This will cause the transmission system to heat up, which may interfere with acceleration and shifting. Dirty transmission fluid will no longer provide lubrication or power for transmission. By removing this old fluid and replacing it with a new ... read more

Romance and Car Life in Cincinnati

Romance and Car Life in Cincinnati

Do you remember your first love?  By first love, I don’t mean the boy or girl that first caught your eye. I mean the first automobile you fell in love with back in your youth. Not the one you saw in a showroom or on a poster, but the one you first could call your own, the one that gave you the freedom to get around.  We call this nostalgia ‘car life’ when you have a sense of yourself built into the car you own, and it makes its way into your relationship. You may have gained a partner along the way who understands how sentimental that first car is or was and perhaps shares a bit of nostalgia with you for the vehicle where you spend many date nights together. Although some may find it silly, car life in Cincinnati is alive and well. Last year, Fox 19 produced a beautiful account of a group of Pontiac Trans Am lovers at the Cavalcade of Customs Car Show who share their love of the Trans Am getting to meet and compare stories. It’s a heartwarming tale ... read more

Types of Car Fluid Leaks

Types of Car Fluid Leaks

If you own a car, then it is important for you to regularly look at the ground where you park, be it in the garage or the driveway. If you notice that a fluid has been accumulating there, then the issue needs to be investigated further. Your car has several different fluids, and identifying the leaking fluid is not always straightforward. Below are some common types of car fluid leaks. Brake Fluid Leak Brake fluid is usually brown in color. It tends to accumulate under the master brake cylinder or just next to a tire. A brake fluid leak is quite a serious issue since the efficiency and the effectiveness of the braking system significantly depend on the right amount of brake fluid. Therefore, if the brake fluid is leaking, you will need to visit an auto shop right away for the sake of your safety. Transmission Fluid Leak Transmission fluid is usually brownish. If you catch transmission fluid a leak early, you can potentially save yourself a lot of money. Coolant Leak The coolant i ... read more

New Year, New Issues: planning ahead for 2021

 New Year, New Issues: planning ahead for 2021

So long, 2020! It’s normal to look back nostalgically at the year we’ve had, but with the civil unrest, western wildfires, threat of killer hornets, and of course, the pandemic, 2020 was not the kind of year that you stay tender to. So goodbye, 2020, and good riddance! 2021 will have plenty of challenges for us. There’s hope on the horizon now that a vaccine to COVID-19 has been approved, but with the economy in rough shape and so many out of work and/or homeless in the ensuing closedowns, the future is an undiscovered country that might be just as bad as the previous year. But the important thing now is to plan for 2021, and make the safe bets. Pay attention to what’s on the horizon… what to do about your kids if they are about to graduate into this situation… how to prepare for whatever bad shocks might come without living in fear. Your vehicle is one element that should not be giving you anxiety. You are likely driving it less than previous y ... read more

What Are the Symptoms of a Blown Head Gasket?

What Are the Symptoms of a Blown Head Gasket?

When you notice that your car isn't running right, you want to know what the problem is so you can get it fixed and be on your way. It could be an easy and inexpensive repair or it could be a labor-intensive job that will cost you, such as a blown head gasket. What the Head Gasket Does A car's engine contains two parts consisting of the cylinder block and the cylinder head. The cylinder block contains the pistons and cylinders. The cylinder head contains the spark plugs, valves and camshaft. The head gasket is located between these two engine parts. The head gasket has a critical function. It is responsible for sealing the cylinders' firing pressure and to ensure oil and engine coolant doesn't leak onto the cylinders or to the outside. The head gasket can eventually show signs of stress as it must continually endure two surfaces that expand and contract while doing its job. Symptoms of a Blown Head Gasket There are many signs that y ... read more

The Importance of Tire Rotations

The Importance of Tire Rotations

When most drivers think of their vehicle maintenance, tires don't usually come to mind. They are highly durable components of your vehicle, however, they still need care and service. Buying a new set of tires doesn't come cheap, and the longer you can sustain good working tires, the safer you'll be on the road and the more money you'll save on tires over time.  Tires typically only need to be replaced every 60,000 miles or so, depending on your individual driving habits and how well you take care of your vehicle. So when it comes to tire maintenance, what exactly is needed? We want to talk to you about tire rotations, and just how important they are.  What exactly is a tire rotation? Tire rotation is the simple service of a mechanic switching the positions of your tires. The tires will switch which side of the vehicle they are on, and the front and back position. It's basically giving each tire a run at every position in your vehicle. But why?  Wel ... read more

Showing Gratitude For Our Cars

Showing Gratitude For Our Cars

It’s November, and that means the holiday season will kick off soon with the feast of feasts, Thanksgiving. This is the time of year when we all come back from our individual busy lives and spend a holiday weekend with our extended families over parades and football and board games. We gather around a table, a diverse collection of pilgrims, come to give thanks for our safe arrival home one more year. In some families, though, there are members, young and old, who are vulnerable to disease and can’t risk a full family gathering. That will mean many families will have to skip Thanksgiving this year to protect each other. It’s important to show gratitude when we can for being well enough to see each other for the holiday.  As we give thanks for all we have this year and for each other, there’s someone you rely on daily who deserves your recognition: your car! Who else braves the weather for you, beats the traffic in on time, and keeps you mild, calm, and en ... read more
