Staying Warm in Winter

Staying Warm in Winter

Photo by @shawnanggg on Unsplash   While it doesn't seem like the greatest idea to turn on your A/C in freezing temperatures, it can benefit your A/C system's life and function. One of the leading issues is the build-up of mold and bacteria due to condensation. Another issue is the breakdown of your A/C system caused by an extended period of time without use. To avoid these issues and further damage that can lead to costly repairs, we recommend running your A/C on full-cold for about 10-15 minutes every couple of weeks. Running your A/C this way will ensure the liquids flow properly and that the moving parts are thoroughly lubricated.    Using your A/C system simultaneously as your heating system will provide c ... read more

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
