Why You Need A Cabin Air Filter Replacement

Why You Need A Cabin Air Filter Replacement

The cabin air filter in your vehicle plays a very important role when it comes to keeping the air in your vehicle safe and clean. Humid climates such as in Oklahoma City, OK, can cause a ton of moisture in the air to run through your vehicle’s cabin air filter. Moisture present in the cabin air filter can cause an increase in contaminants and mold to accumulate.  The air outside of your vehicle while driving on packed roads and freeways contains many air contaminants, such as dust, diesel soot, pollen, and smog. The cabin air filter is responsible for filtering the dirty air as it enters your vehicle’s air conditioning and heating system. Once the cabin air filter becomes saturated with debris, it prevents fresh air from getting into the vehicle, and can be a cause for concern for you and your passenger’s health. When dirty air gets into your vehicle, it remains extremely concentrated.  This is why it is so important to have your vehicle’s cabin air ... read more

How Often Should I Replace My Windshield Wipers?

Your vehicle's windshield wipers are a key component when it comes to visibility. Without working wipers, you may not be able to see the road clearly in events such as rain or if you get to your car to find that the windshield is dirty. We've seen it happen many times before - a driver hasn't replaced their wipers in years, and when a rainstorm hits, they find themselves having to pull over because they can't see. We never want you to be in this situation, because it can be extremely dangerous.  The question is, how long do windshield wipers last exactly and when should they be replaced? In warmer climates, it is typically recommended to replace your wipers every 6 months or every year. It depends on if your car is always parked out in the sun and how dry the weather is. If you're always under the sun in dry heat, you'll find that you need to replace your windshield wipers often. This is because the rubber becomes dry and begins to fray.  If it has b ... read more

Why is My Brake Pedal Vibrating?

A shaky or vibrating brake pedal can definitely be a cause for concern. No one wants to experience issues with their brakes, a finding that your brake pedal is heavily shaking under your foot can leave you wondering if there is a bigger issue brewing. While all brake problems, it is always important to have your vehicle inspected as soon as possible to avoid brake failure on the road. However, lets look at some of the reasons why your brake pedal may be vibrating or shaking when you press on it.  The problem could be with the brake drums or rotors, because both can become warped over time. They are both exposed to lots of heat within the brake system, so warping over time is very common. This warping will creating a wobbling affect when you initiate your brakes, causing the vibrating sensation.    Worn down brake pads is another common cause because the contact can be inconsistent with the brake pad, causing a wobbling effect.    If your vehicle's ... read more

No One Is Immune To Trouble On The Road

No One Is Immune To Trouble On The Road

This seems like an unnecessary advertising strategy. ?    We can all laugh AFTER we have vehicle related travel troubles but during? It's a nightmare even Johan isn't immune to! This small luggage trailer bottomed out in the hills of Tennessee puncturing the left tire and causing the tire to drag, smoke and wear away with half the trip still left to go! Thanks to Johann and Hondura, the Toyota Highlander pulling it was running perfectly and was able to pick up the load the trailer had to leave behind. Some amazing techs at a local tire shop who stayed late to help put new tires on the trailer wheels, all travelers were able to get back on the road and reach their destination safely although a bit later than planned. Somehow Mrs. Johann found the crazy situation of repairing a trailer tire on a steep highway ... read more

How Often Should I Have My Vehicle Inspected?

As a vehicle owner, you may wonder - how often should I have my vehicle inspected? While some people may be reluctant because of the fear that the mechanic will find something expensive to fix, the truth is that regular inspections are the key to saving you money in the grand scheme of things.  When you have regular inspections, you increase the chance of catching issues early on that can turn into expensive repairs if ignored. It also helps mechanics identify any parts that may need replacing in the near future that could otherwise fail and cause problems for you on the road.  So the question remains - how often should you have your vehicle inspected? The answer is - as often as you can, but at least every 6 months. You can also refer to your vehicle's owner's manual for more information regarding inspection recommendations as well as recommended services. The age of your vehicle and your own driving habits should also be taken into consideration when thinking abou ... read more
