Why did my car start smoking?

We hope you all had a fantastic weekend. For those who got an extra day we hope you had fun and are refreshed and ready for the week.  Many times if your car is smoking then you have an oil leak and that oil is dripping onto the exhaust causing the smoke. We always recommend to have your vehicle checked when ever it's doing something that it not "normal" this can be smoking, make noise or just running differently than it had previously.  Give us a call and let us take care of you 541-791-2886 Happy Adventures,  Heather

My air conditioner blows hot at a stop

Hi! We hope you're doing well and enjoying the beautiful weather. We are looking forward to summer and all the fun that involves. At least it will mean more time outside in the yard working on our tans.  If your air conditioner is blowing cold while driving and then hot when at a stop it could be due to low refrigerant in the system. This can be fixed by having your air conditioning system serviced. Your air conditioning system should be serviced every other year to make sure it's working at it's full capacity.  Give us a call and let us take care of you. 541-791-2886 Happy Adventures,  Heather

Vehicle Check-Up

Has your vehicle been sitting for a while? If so then now is the time to get a checkup before you start driving again. Sitting for long periods of time is hard on your vehicle. The gaskets, seals can harden after sitting for long periods of time, when this happens it can cause oil leaks. Your battery it typically maintained when you drive daily and if that isn't happening then it can cause your battery to be weak and could lead to a no start condition. Having a checkup is a great thing to do to make sure you're ready for all of your adventures. Give is a call and let us take care of you 541-791-2886 Happy Adventures,  Heather

When should I change my cabin air filter?

Happy Monday! We hope you had a great restful weekend and you're ready for the week ahead.  Your cabin air filter should be changed every 15,000 to 20,000 miles. Did you know that your cabin air filter filters the air that you breathe. If you're one of us that has allergies then this is even more critical. Your cabin air filter will trap pollen and help you feel better when you're driving your car. Some of them have charcoal added and those will help eliminate odors from inside and those coming from outside as well. We are open and accepting appointments.  Give us a call and let us take care of you 541-791-2886 Happy Adventures, Heather

Why does my car squeak when I turn?

Happy Friday everyone! We hope you're enjoying this beautiful weather. We know the rain will be coming back again soon enough, but we are all enjoying the sunshine as much as we can. If your car is squeaking when you turn then it could be due to an issue with your steering and suspension. Many time a noise when turning is from your power steering pump. This pump can fail and when it does it can make it hard for you to steer and control your vehicle.  Give us a call and let us take care of you 541-791-2886 Happy Adventures,  Heather

My wipers stopped working when I turned them to high

Rainy weather seems to be back again, with that means we're using our wipers. If your windshield wiper stops suddenly when turning it all the way up to high it could be an issue with your linkage or the wiper transmission.  Give us a call and let us take care of you. 541-791-2886 Happy Adventures,  Heather

My air conditioner is blowing hot air

We hope you're well and we are hoping that we're all getting back to normal soon. We are open and taking appointments.  We had such a beautiful weekend and it was so warm too. We turned on the air conditioner for my vehicle and it would only blow hot air, which is a little disappointing when you're expecting nice cold air. We got it in and found that it just needed to be recharged. If yours is doing the same thing then give us a call and we will make you an appointment to get it checked before the weather really gets warm.  Give us a call and let us take care of you 541-791-2886 Happy Adventures,  Heather

My check engine light turns on and off

If your check engine light is coming on and turning off again then it could be a emissions code. This means anything from a faulty gas cap to an issue with an oxygen sensor and many things in between. The only way to know what is going on is to make an appointment and we will scan the computer and run a diagnostic test on it to pinpoint your issue. This can be done even if the check engine light has turned itself off again.  Give us a call and let us take care of you. 541-791-2886 Happy Adventures, Heather
