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.

What Our Customers

Are Saying

A great place to take your car, honest, trustworthy and wonderful service.
Best auto shop in Reno / Sparks Ever.
Honest mechanics, always try to save you a buck too! Used for over 30 years.
We had our heads replaced on our old Dodge Ram they gave us a great price. Didn't overcharge us and even came in under the quote. We will bring our other cars here also. Great shop, good honest hardworking mechanics.
We have been using these guys for a few years now. Have only good things to say about them. They have worked on both our vehicles and we would recommend them as they do a great job and are very professional and knowledgeable.
Rick, Diane, and the crew at The Auto Shop are the kind of repair shop that is hard to come by anymore. They are honest, reliable, good people, and treat you as one of their own. This is coming from someone who was raised in a mechanic shop. You won't find more fair pricing and expertise than these guys!
I've known Rick and Tom for my whole life. I wouldn't trust any of my vehicles to anyone except for The Auto Shop. Always been totally satisfied with every encounter here. Awesome shop, you won't be disappointed.
Super nice people and they did a great job repairing my 04 Trailblazer and it didn't cost a fortune!!
I took my truck to this gentlemen thinking I had an internal engine problem. When conducting the diagnostic, he told me that I had a simple belt issue that was caught in about 20 minutes, and he used the remaining 40 minutes as a part of the labor needed. He could have easily charged the whole hour, found other little problems and charged me for those too. Extremely honest, straightforward, would 100% recommend to anyone. I know me and my family have been nothing but happy with the work.
Just took my 04 Acura MDX in and they did a great job. Tom is a great guy. I will be taking my cars back for sure.
