What Are the Signs of a Failing Water Pump?

What Are the Signs of a Failing Water Pump?

No matter what kind of vehicle you drive, many moving parts can wear out over time, causing costly and even dangerous damage. One of these components is the water pump. The water pump is usually positioned underneath the belt on the side of the engine. This part is responsible for keeping coolant flowing through the engine to maintain a regulated temperature. With such an integral role, it's important to repair any damage relating to the water pump right away. Here are some of the signs to look out for a failing water pump:   COOLANT LEAK If you begin to notice green or red puddles towards the front of the vehicle in the morning, this could signify a failed seal or gasket in your water pump. A minor leak may not leave such a noticeable puddle, so you should also search for a build-up of gelled coolant deposit.   WHINING NOISE A high-pitched whining sound coming from the front of your car as you drive or come to a stop is usually attributed to a loose belt. This coul ... read more

The Best All-Season Tires for Colorado Driving

Photo by Colin Lloyd on Unsplash   Summer is here in full, finally. Join us as we look ahead to the importance of seasonal tires on your car, with some insight on the industry’s best all-season tires! The tires on your car are as significant as the shoes you wear on your feet. If you clog in stilettos, you're going to mangle your toes. If you never change your socks, you're going to infect your feet and become ill. The rest of your body depends on wearing sensible shoes.   Shoes and tires are similar in that depending on the shoe we wear, the higher performance and safety our bodies will get out of them. The same way we invest in shoes, we all should be doing the same for our tir ... read more

Photo by Pratik Gupta on Unsplash   Welcome to April’s blog! Today, we’re looking at some of our favorite car manufacturers, in terms of cars we love to work on or own!    There are loads of cars we dream of owning-- Italian sports cars, German luxury cars, American muscle cars, Japanese street racers-- but the cars worth having are the ones that blossom with proper care and show unwavering devotion on your drives. Here are five brands we wouldn’t want to see gone from the American road:   AUDI - There’s a lot to be said about Audis.

Hybrids, Self-driving, and the Future of the Family Automobile

Hybrids, Self-driving, and the Future of the Family Automobile

Welcome to the March blog! Today we’ve got the future of cars on our minds. As technology develops and transforms industry, it’s amazing to think that the way we approach driving and automobiles may completely change.    Just a few weeks ago, we heard that Volkswagen is getting into the aircraft business, but thinking about small personal vehicles instead of commercial airliners or helicopters. That seems a bit far-off now, especially with aircraft still being so dependent on fossil fuels to be of use. Not to mention the impracticality of people flying around metro areas!   The practicality of the implementation of new technology is dependent on setting. Some are the ideas in future cars are just theory now, but some are already being implemented into cars. While we’re still off from self-driving vehicles, they are not too far from city streets. Self-driving cars may be a difficult sell on mountain roads, especially in rural mountain areas where a misse ... read more

Bringing the Romance (With a Pandemic On)

Bringing the Romance (With a Pandemic On)

Photo by Satya Tiwari on Pixabay   It’s a shame, but this might be one of the least enthusiastic Valentine’s Days on record, with the pandemic and so much in turmoil right now. The most common advice for how to proceed is to stay at home. But there isn’t much advice about what to do to keep spirits up when we’ve spent so long cooped up together that we have started to lose sight of each other.   It’s easy to become complacent in a situation like a pandemic. Some rules structure what you can and can’t do, restrictions on things you might ordinarily do, and cautions and flags all through something as simple as a shopping trip.   But please remember that it is vitally important to keep some semblance of an occasion such as St. Valentine’s Day going. It’s a gauge by which couples measure the interest their ... read more

Making 2021 A Better Year For You & Your Family

Making 2021 A Better Year For You & Your Family

By almost every account, 2020 was a pretty bad year. There were ups and downs, valleys and peaks, but COVID-19 damaged families all over the planet, and forever changed businesses and travel in North America.    If that wasn’t bad enough, threats of murder hornets and actual encroaching wildfires turned this into a year of constant crises, and we are so glad to finally see it go, so that we can start looking forward to a new year. There’s a vaccine being mass produced and that gives us hope that very soon, we can come together as a community again, safely and without guilt.   2021 has plenty of it’s own issues waiting in the wings. We’re on the brink of recession. We don’t know if the pandemic is truly over yet. There’s unrest everywhere, and anger over what the pandemic has cost us in our families and in our communities.    But the negatives are only a small part of the picture of what could possibly be in store for us in th ... read more

What Is “Concierge Service” & How It Makes A Difference To YOU!

What Is “Concierge Service” & How It Makes A Difference To YOU!

Life can be hectic. As we approach the holidays, it’s even harder to get the simplest things done. It would be so much better, for instance, if refuse service workers moved gently and quietly into your neighborhood, collecting your garbage not from the curb but where you store your bins, and sanitized the bins before they left.    That’s a level of service we are told is impossible, but it's only impossible because government regulation of sanitation services prevents a higher level of service for those willing to pay a premium. Which is too bad, because I imagine there’s a market out there for people who would prefer to pay a bit more to not have to handle waste in their busy daily lives and bring it to the curb on time.   Sometimes, it’s not convenient to bring your vehicle in. You would have to budget time to wait if there’s a line, and the time necessary to place your order with a shop. And then to arrange a rental car or a loaner ca ... read more
