Auto Repair Tips & Advice

Is your car overheating?
Never drive your vehicle when your engine is overheating. If your temperature gauge is 3/4 or more, pull over and turn off the engine. Do not fix it yourself because raising your hood at the wrong time can cause serious injury. If you do not see any steam or coolant boiling onto the ground, allow your engine to cool off for 15–20 minutes, then restart and quickly drive to the nearest auto repair shop while constantly watching the temperature gauge. The safest decision is usually to call a tow truck. A minimum amount of overheating can ruin your engine and cost you a lot of money on replacement. Observing the gauges on your car while driving should be as regular as looking into your mirrors.


Is your oil light on or flashing?
Quickly pull over and turn off the engine if the oil light is on. Checking the oil level will tell you whether you have a low oil or internal oil pressure problem. If the level is low (not on the dipstick), that may be why you have a light on. Correct the level if you can, then restart the engine. If the light still appears, call a tow truck. If the light is off, you may drive home or to the nearest repair shop to find out why the oil level was low. Each time that light is on, you have no oil pressure, which means your high-revving engine is running with no lubrication going to all the moving parts. 


How often do you need an oil change?

We recommend changing the oil every 3,750 miles or 90 days, whichever comes first. Each vehicle has a different recommendation for oil change intervals, so check your owner's manual or contact Express Auto Repair. 

Do you hear abnormal noises coming from your car?

Never ignore strange noises. If you drive the car most of the time and hear an abnormal noise that does not sound like it is going away soon, have the mechanics at Express Auto Repair check it out for you. It's always better to be safe than sorry.


What is the importance of scheduled maintenance?

Following an auto maintenance schedule can help keep your vehicle reliable and maintain its resale value. Maintenance schedules are developed by each manufacturer to highlight the recommended minimum maintenance requirements for a particular model. In most cases, completing this minimum recommended maintenance is necessary to keep a vehicle's warranty in good standing. If, for any reason, your maintenance history does not meet or exceed the recommended minimums, you may have warranty claims denied by the manufacturer. If this happens, you may have to pay out of pocket for costly repairs. Regularly completing scheduled maintenance items like oil changes, filter changes, and tune-ups can also keep your vehicle performing smoothly and getting good fuel economy.


Don't forget to read your owner's manual!
We are still amazed to this day by the number of people who will invest thousands of dollars in a vehicle they depend on every day and never open the owner's manual! Reading your manual and understanding everything in it is one of the most important things you can do for your car. Do not disregard any of the information provided in the manual.
