Vehicle Tips

According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.

The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)

Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.

Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.

Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.

A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.

Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.

Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.

Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.

Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.

Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.

Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.

Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.

Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.

Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.

Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.

Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.

Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.

Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.

Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.

What Our Customers Are Saying

It's never a good situation when you are stranded 200 miles from your home with a car that cant be driven. After my son accidentally put diesel fuel in my car I contacted a few service shops to find out the best way to deal with the issue. Scott was honest, caring and saved me time and money by not overcharging me as some other shops had quoted. The repairs were done for half the cost and the car now rides perfect. Thank you once again for providing excellent customer service and quality work.

My wife's coworker recommended to take our Nissan Quest here for suspension issues. First things first, they were solidly booked for at least a week because they were very busy. Not a bad thing. Luckily, I could afford to wait, so I did. Our day came and I dropped the vehicle off. Here's my first impression: it's not the biggest garage in the world but it was tidy. Everything was organized and in its place, the tools, parts, fluids, etc. No trash on the floor or mess anywhere. If the floor wasn't stained with fluid you could probably eat off it. All the mechanics were busy bees, no idle talk or chit chat. April at the office took my info and I left. Got a call from Scott a couple of hours later letting me know what the problem was and the cost, which was more than fair. Got a call in the morning (happily surprised) and got my car back in less than 24hrs, good as new. I asked Brandon who helped work on the car a few questions and unprompted, he dropped what he was doing to show me the old parts and what was wrong with my car and took the time to answer more questions. Lastly, while getting our vehicle, Scott spotted us and introduced himself personally. Even recommended another shop for alignment services to save us money. The process of trying a new mechanic is always scary but I can't begin to tell you the peace I felt after doing business with this shop. Aces, top notch, masterful, etc.,all the superlatives apply. Thank you Scott, Brandon and the rest of the team. We've found our local mechanic.

I would highly recommend Williams Automotive. Scott is awesome. I had another place tell me I needed a handful of things done and Scott was honest about what was actually needed and what wasn't. He also took the time to explain how/why things should be done. Today I was panicking about my car and he squeezed my car in to make sure it wasn't anything serious. My car is older and I commute so making sure it is well taken care of is a top priority. I would trust all the good reviews, I am glad I did!

Williams Automotive is always my life saver. I can go to them for anything and not be worried about it costing me an arm and leg.

My car was making a super loud squeaking noise, so I showed up around 7 am hoping to get a spot before the weekend. Not only did I run into Scott working hard before the crack of dawn, but he took my car no questions asked and also managed to fix before the end of his day!! If thats not a sign of a hardworking and excellent mechanic/businessman I don't know what is. My car runs amazing, no more squeaking down the road. I will 100% be back for my yearly car check up. You want quality service go to Willians Automotive!!!
