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

I am new to the area and was recommended to Williams Automotive by a coworker. April and Scott run the best mechanic shop I have ever been to, and I do not mean that lightly. They are quick, thorough, and very reasonably priced. Scott is incredibly knowledgeable and upfront about different repair options, and I have observed an impressive range of cars entrusted to their repair: from family minivans to personal vehicles to modified trucks and high-end sports cars. I'm extremely grateful that my first mechanic shop in the area became my only mechanic shop; I won't be going anywhere else!

I came in to have my battery checked yesterday because after my oil change at Toyota two days ago I was told my battery needed service. The wonderful man who helped me at Williams Automotive popped the hood and asked me to take a look. The battery was fine. I'll be headed to Williams Automotive for future oil and maintenance for sure!!! Thank you

reviewiconI have found my forever mechanic!
Scott over at Williams automotive is the best! I'd taken my vehicle to 3 other mechanics before him, and never got my my problem fixed, only spent lots of money! Not only did he fix my problem, which was actually problems, plural but he has a really great attitude and is kind and patient and takes the time to explain everything to you. I definitely feel that he went above and beyond most business operators out there! It's the way it should be! And I will not go anywhere else! I'm a single parent of a disabled young child. And not being able to rely on my vehicle was a very stressful and unsettling thing to deal with. Thanks to Williams Automotive, I'm able to start my car whenever I want, LOL! Just the relief of knowing it will be okay now is amazing!

reviewiconExcellent in every respect
Once again, I got exceptional service from Scott Williams. Where other mechanics might go for the quick, easy (and sometimes expensively wrong) solution, Scott does the detective work necessary to get it right. I expect his knowledge and experience give him a big advantage. Best of all, he really does care about his customers. I discovered him through word-of-mouth recommendations by neighbors, and I now share their enthusiasm.

I thought that I needed to replace the belts for my engine but it turned out I only needed to get them adjusted. They did it for free. Very kind people, I appreciate them a lot.

Williams automotive was a great find. I interviewed a few places before ultimately choosing Williams. Scott the owner, was knowledgeable and his communication was appreciated. I have an older 1990's SUV that needed some engine work and it was done very well and quickly. I trust the work they do and would recommend them. If you live in Ventura, Oxnard, Camarillo and you need auto repair work you should go here. Bottom line.
