Discover What We Do!
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.
? ? Great quality service. I let Scott know the issue I was having with my vehicle. I let him know I was on tight time schedule. Dropped off the vehicle in the morning as suggested. Scott had the repair done before lunch time the same day. Diffently will be a returning customer if the need appears ?
Scott and team are honest, fair, and perhaps most importantly, kind. I'll never take my vehicle anywhere else. April is very friendly, helpful, and provides excellent customer service.
I’ needed a place to take my 2000 mustang and After being over charged and under serviced at other places, I can not afford a new one, and my car definitely has some issues with 250,000miles , Scott keeps me on the road. the first time I went to Scott was for an oil change and Scott found a small issue and fixed it for free and I instantly I got about 45 more miles to the tank then I had been. The last time I brought it in he did brakes, battery oil change and a few little things, and did a great job and quick too. But what was amazing is , that same week I got Covid and was sick and off work and quarantine for 10 days he went out of his way to help me get my car to me and offered to refund the labor cost of my bill until I was able to afford it! To top it off his first question to me while working to getting my car to me was always how are feeling? You doing ok? That was above and beyond to go this far for a customer, but Scott did! On top of that they have always been the best , honest and capable mechanics! They charge fair prices work fast, and are really good! They are the nicest caring people I’ve ever encountered. You will not find a better more honest and capable place to take your car then to Scott! They are truly great mechanics, honest , professional and good people. I’m grateful to have them as my mechanic! Thank you Scott and company!
Scott did an amazing job troubleshooting my rattling issue that mostly came about from another shop. He is straight to the point and very honest on the work that needs to get done. Prices are very reasonable and won't sell you on things that don't need attention, unlike other chain shops. If you're looking for a trusted mechanic, Williams Automotive is where it's at. I'm glad I found out about this place!
They run a tight ship and everyone is a true professional at this shop.
We've been going to Scott for a few years now off and on and I cannot say enough good things. Most recently I took my car over after failing the smog and an unsuccessful self repair and he not only went through great lengths to figure out the code and make sure everything was running well so I could pass and not delay my registration any further. The team is always kind, professional, fair, and honest. You really can't ask for more. Sincerest thanks.
