    Vehicle Tips

    According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.

    The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)

    Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.

    Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.

    Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.

    A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.

    Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.

    Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.

    Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.

    Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.

    Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.

    Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.

    Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.

    Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.

    Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.

    Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.

    Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.

    Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.

    Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.

    Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.

    They were very helpful

    Jay and his crew run a touch notch shop. Very fair and honest with their prices. Would definitely return.
    reviewicon
    They mounted a used tire for me with no appointment at a very reasonable price. I will definitely be back!
    reviewicon
    I've never had an issue getting an appointment as busy as they are and it's always been at my convenience. They close at 5 and here it is 7:00 pm on a FRIDAY and Richard stayed to get my daughter's car finished. They are reasonably priced, hard working, and honest. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Years ago, I had my car in for recommended service and Jay (the owner) called to say it didn't need to done. That was an easy 200 bucks-I never would have known. All about integrity. As far as I'm concerned I won't go anywhere else. Thank you Westminster car care!

    Great service and Jay does not cheat you

    Jay is a great shop owner. He was highly recommended and I have always been satisfied with prices and the work completed. I had an old jeep that I was able to keep on the road a lot longer than it should have and for a lot less. It’s so nice to have a mechanic that you can trust and who has been so reliable.

    Know how to do any repair and dp it very well and truly care about the work that's been and not just about money been theit for 15 years that should tell you something.
    reviewicon
    I was at the shop yesterday and I absolutely recommend. After running a free diagnostic on my engine light, checking historical service data for my make and model, and some discussion, Jay actually told me NOT to have any work done yet. He told me what to watch for and to bring it back in if that happened. AMAZING! He also told the older woman before me that she did NOT have to have her belts replaced yet bc even tho there was a noise, they were still good. As we all know, an honest mechanic is hard to find. Also, his parking lot was overflowing, always a good sign.
