In the world of automotive care, information can often be handed down throughout generations, or spread through poorly quoted sources. It’s no surprise then, that any person seeking quality automotive service can come across plenty of car care myths. Not only are there a number of myths out there, but in many cases the “actual facts” are just as bad as the myths they are replacing. At Gary’s Automotive, We’ll get to the bottom of what myths are true, what myths are false, and what you really need to know.
Every year, people around the world gather to count down the start of a new year. With that, people vow to make big, often jarring, lifestyle changes for the better. Things like getting into better shape, eating healthier, or saving money are consistently at the top of peoples lists. For most people the first two weeks of January are their healthiest weeks of the year. Now that the month is coming to an end, many people have abandoned their new routines and sunk back into old habits. While Gary’s Automotive can’t help you put down the pizza and go for a run, we can help you stick to any car resolutions you may have, such as saving money, becoming more informed, or becoming a better driver.
No one likes sinking more money than they need to into their car. Vehicles have so many moving parts that there’s simply no way all of them could last forever. That’s why the concept of vehicle wear parts was introduced. Vehicle wear parts are components that are able to be replaced, as their main function has them deteriorate over time. Oil becoming dirty or brake pads wearing down are example of vehicle wear parts that need to be replaced in time. There are a lot of different options out there for these parts, so Gary’s is here to help make sense of it all.
There are some people out there who can simply hear an engine rev and tell you the make, model, and even year of the car producing that sound. While you may have some knowledge of vehicles, chances are if you’re reading a garage’s blog, you might not have the same knowledge as some gearheads out there. That’s not a bad thing! Gary’s is here not only for expert service, but for quality help as well. Here we’ll take a look at the common ways people talk about learning car engines, and how you can use these terms in your day to day life.
