“Why Did I Have a Hard Time Driving In The Snow?”

“Why Did I Have a Hard Time Driving In The Snow?”

Why did I have a hard time driving in the snow? If your tires look like the included picture that is probably why. Without tread the tires do not have anything to grip with in the snow and slush of winter driving. When you see to wear bars even with the the tread bars the useful life of the tire is over. In the rain a tire in this condition can actually hydro-plane as the sipes that squeeze water out are now missing. Here at Framerite Auto Repair we can replace your tires and align the suspension for the best handling and tire wear

Can My Rusted Toyota Frame Be Repaired?

Can My Rusted Toyota Frame Be Repaired?

Can my rusted Toyota frame be repaired? In most cases yes. The common rust out areas on Tacoma's and 4-Runners can usually be repaired by installing repair kits that until recently became available in the aftermarket. Performing these repairs will bring the vehicle back to service safely when prevoiusly it would be headed for the junk yard. The preparation for the installation of the caps is quite extensive. All rusted out areas are cut out and the remaining metal is resurfaced to be treated with rust inhibitor and and painted. Though the cap kits are good they require some work as to creating the holes for brackets and side steps to be bolted back in place. All in all the finished product is very nice when complete. If you have any issue with your rusted Toyota frame bring it to us for advice on what can be done

Road Trip and Your Car

Road Trip and Your Car

Are you planning a road trip for the Memorial Day Weekend? Have you thought about making sure that your car is ready to go when you are? Your car should be inspected before taking a trip to ensure that you arrive safely and without unexpected delays and bills. Generally speaking all your fluids should be inspected and topped off, your tires should be checked for condition and the correct amount of air pressure, and your battery should be checked as well. One tip is to also check the condition and the amount of air pressure in your spare. They are often neglected but are very important if the need arises. Your air filter should be changed if not done recently. Your oil level should at least be checked and have your oil and filter changed, if due. Check all your lights and wipers to be sure they are working properly. Your brakes should be checked, as well as your suspension parts. Let's not forget your air conditioner; you definitely want to be cool while traveling. This rain is goi ... read more

How Much Does It Cost To Fill My Air Conditioner with Freon?

How Much Does It Cost To Fill My Air Conditioner with Freon?

How much does it cost to fill my car air conditioner with freon? Several factors come into play when determining price. First it must be determined how much freon, if any, is left in the system. If the system is just a little low and no leak can be found a small recharge may be all that is needed. If however the system is very low adding freon with large amount of air will not produce cold air. In these cases evacuating and recharging the system, while adding leak detection dye to find out how the freon escaped is in order. In all cases, thoroughly searching for the leak is a priority. Our technicians can get you back to driving comfortably in the summer heat

“Why Is My Air Conditioner Blowing Hot Air?”

“Why Is My Air Conditioner Blowing Hot Air?”

Why is my car air conditioner blowing hot air? With Spring finally here so are higher temperatures. When we want a little relief from the hot sun heating up the interior of our vehicle, we expect cool air to come out of the vents. Unfortunately over the winter months the air conditioning system can lose its charge or an electrical malfunction may occur. Sometimes seals or parts wear out, allowing the freon to leak or a pressure switch can malfunction, preventing the compressor from operating. Whatever the case may be, our highly experienced technicians can locate and repair your problem to get you back to comfortable driving in the summer heat

Check Engine Light

Check Engine Light

Is your check engine light on? If you watch the attached video you will get a great laugh but is obviously not the way to fix it. Your check engine light could be lit for a very minor issue. Or there could be something major going on with your engine. When your light goes on, there is so much more involved than the need to “pull a code”. The code gives you a starting point for finding out what is going on. It's like a fire alarm going off, alerting you that there is a fire somewhere in a 100 story building. You don't want to just throw parts at a problem and hope that it is fixed. You want the problem fixed right the first time. Our mechanics have the knowledge, tools and experience to do do just that! Give us a call and we will have you confidently driving down the road again in no time! http://bit.ly/2FXDh4I
