Why is your car having electrical issues? Here are 4 common problems that can be hurting your electrical system.
Why do I need an Alignment? How often should I align my car? What happens if I don't align my car? How long does an alignment take?
Here is a list that alignment will affect or prevent:
- Uneven tire wear (we've seen tires wear out in less than 10K miles)
- Steering wheel is crooked
- Tires feathering on the edges
- Drifting or pulling while driving down the road
- Brakes wearing out prematurely
- Driver Assist Systems (DAS) not working properly
- Braking distance
- Cornering and handling
Tommy's Hi Tech Auto uses the absolute latest technology on the market. Our cutting edge Hunter alignment machine is fast, accurate, and very intelligent!
We proudly use BG Induction Service Products.
Facts: Alignment should be done once a year whether or not you notice an issue. Alignments improve traction, cornering, and braking. Alignments decrease your tire wear. Lastly, believe it or not a proper alignment calibration will help prevent brake pad wear.
Should I have an alignment done even if my car is not pulling or drifting? Yes, experts recommend once a year, especially with lane departure and drive assist features. See video below.
What if my car vibrates? An alignment will not "fix" a vibration concern. Rather the alignment could be out, which caused the tires to wear, ultimately leading to vibration.
Do I need an alignment if my car pulls when I brake? It is suggested to check your alignment, but this will probably not fix the pull when braking. More than likely you have a brake failure at one of the wheels.
We suggest replacing your fluid between 30K miles and 50K miles depending on your driving habits. We use BG Products to maximize the protection of your important investment. You should flush your transmission now if you have the following conditions or symptoms.
- Hard shifting
- Dissolves and suspends deposits
- Rids all old fluid and suspended debris
- Installs new automatic transmission fluid
- Fortifies new fluid with seal conditioners, oxidation inhibitors and shift improvers
- No deposit formation
- Restored transmission performance
- Longer transmission life
Why should you flush your transmission fluid? Great question! Transmission fluid is a hydraulic fluid that does two main things. 1. It provides lubrication to the clutches(see image), which makes your car go. 2. It handles really high pressure. Over time fluid gets really hot(200 plus degrees), and then it cools down and moisture begins to build over thousands of miles. The clutch material will disintegrate in water. Not good! Also when the fluid breaks down over many many miles, it starts to lose its cooling properties. At that time, your clutches begin to have slippage, which will result in major transmission issues.
