When Should You Have Your Brakes Serviced?

Your brakes perform an important service for your vehicle. The system works to deliver increased pressure to the brake calipers, which will then squeeze the wheel rotors and cause the wheels to turn more slowly or stop. If the brake fluid is compromised, then it will not be able to exert the correct pressure on the calipers.

When the brake pedal is working properly, it will be firm when depressed. If it is soft or spongy in its response, then it probably has a problem with the brake fluid. A common cause of a soft brake is usually air in…

Popular Motor Oil Myths

You can use this blog to become a better-informed car owner. At our dealership, we encounter a lot of motor oil-related myths. Let's quickly debunk a couple.

Some drivers believe that oil's color dictates when to change it. They think black oil is completely used oil. This is incorrect. While new motor oil has a translucent, dark-amber appearance, its darkening does not indicate significant viscosity loss. In fact, in addition to lubricating, the oil must clean. Thus, if you see black oil on your auto's dipstick, this simply indicates that your oil is doing its job.

What Causes Soft Brakes?

If your vehicle's brake pedal feels soft when you step on it, it is a signal that something has changed. One cause of the softer feel is a change in brake fluid.

Sometimes the brake line has small holes or tears, which is allowing the fluid to leak out. Losing brake fluid will cause the brakes to lose hydraulic pressure. The braking will not feel firm. A leaking brake line…

Is Your Car Engine Getting Loud?

If your car's engine is getting louder, chances are it's the exhaust system that's the problem. When corrosion causes exhaust pipes to develop holes, the engine's noise escapes before it reaches the muffler.

Other signs that your exhaust system may be leaking is a loss of fuel economy if the leak is near the engine. That's because engines are designed to use the back pressure provided by a sealed exhaust system. This can also cause the engine to vibrate more than normal as it works harder. Problems don't stop at leaks, though. Blockage of…
