Emergency Kit

With winter coming now is a great time to check out the condition of your vehicle’s emergency kit.  Verify that everything is present, including jumper cables, flares, tools and replenish individual items as needed.  Nothing is worse than “thinking” everything is there, and then when you need it, it’s not.  Sometimes get borrowed and not returned, plus you can use things up and forget to replace them.

Fuel Pump

Would like to know how it keep your Fuel Pump in good condition?  Do not to let your gas tank run below 1/4 of a tank. Running it low on a frequent basis can cause premature wear on. Many contaminants and impurities sit at the bottom and the pump is forced to suck those up when the tank runs low, which can cause it to stop working.  If you vehicle cranks, but won’t turn over, the cause could be a fuel pump failure.  If you are in that situation, give us a call, we will get you in and diagnose the problem.
