Unlike common household waste, auto parts and fluids cannot be thrown away in a regular trash can or recycling bin. Things like motor oil, tires and car batteries are considered to be hazardous waste and need to be properly disposed of in a safe environment. We’ve created a guide to help you determine what to do with your old car batteries, motor oil & tires and how to properly dispose of them.
For the true car fan, nothing beats the roar of an engine or the sounds of a turbo firing up. For the more casual driver, silence is normally preferred as this means nothing is wrong with the car. Next to a visual diagnosis, listening to car sounds is one of the easiest ways to spot something wrong. Unfortunately, listening also isn’t an exact science, so saying you hear a clunking coming from your vehicle can mean a number of different issues.
Here at Gary’s Automotive Ottawa, we’re experts in all things car, including those unusual car sounds coming from under the hood. Learn more about the sounds your vehicle is making and when you should come see our team of mechanics.
