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.
These guys have taken care of our vehicles for years. They are reliable, honest, and go above and beyond for their customers We will never go anywhere else.
I'm a single mother of four and was having trouble with my oil. I ended up in his parking lot today. Not knowing me at all, He graciously helped me out free of charge. Much thanks to you!
Jason and his team have kept my vehicles going for years!
Great shop run by honest people. We drive from Central to have everything serviced there. The kind of place you send your Mom to alone and know she's being taken care of.
K&M has always offered us quality service and been very honest in their assessment of necessary work and work to consider in the future that isn't urgent. They consistently do a great job on all the vehicles we've brought to them.
These guys always take care of me and they are very good at what they do. They are kind and efficient. Jason and Mitch do a great job with the customers and do not over promise. They are honest and hard working. I highly recommend them.
Nice, honest & girl friendly. I just moved here. I came in to get the shocks replaced and front end alignment. Once they replaced the shocks he noticed the tire rods were bad. He explained the front end alignment would useless with bad tire rods. Its worth repeating He (Jason) explained the problem. I think i found my place for auto repairs!
I've been bringing my truck here to get inspections and oil changes for about a year now and I've been impressed with the level of service every time. They always give me accurate predictions on wait and will even recommend another service shop if they feel that the wait will be unacceptable.
...The owners at K $ M were the nicest guys. My neighbors go there and recommended them. I sure see why. Everything about the transaction was worry-free, expedited quickly, and they brothers are great with cars and people!
Jason and His Staff Are AWESOME!!! He's never let me and my family down and he has never once tried to get over on me because I'm a woman. Great Quality Work. Good warranties. Great prices. Mitch is a sweet young man also, the whole staff is Great!! Highly Recommend.
If you want an auto shop with excellent, quick, world class service, go to K & M. My alternator went out when we were going through Baton rouge, on our way to a festival in New Orleans. Needless to say, we were very anxious to have the car repaired ASAP. The shop had the alternator 'rushed' to the shop. the alternator was installed in about 20 minutes. they installed it so quickly, we didn't have to go through the time and money and hassle to rent a car. Thanks K and M!!! You ARE the best
HONEST, INEXPENSIVE AND FAST I have taken all three cars to K&M. My first trip was to get an estimate for catalytic converters for a Lexus since another place identified that as the problem with a $600 estimate. K&M charged me $100. That was 3 years ago and car is running fine. Other two experiences were just as good or better. I didn't think auto shops like this existed anymore.
These guys are great. I dealt with all of the national brands with my companies work vehicles, but I tried these guys out with my personal vehicles. I'm so glad that I did. They are super honest with what you really need and realistic with wait times. The prices beat the major brands shops and the work is far better too. No bring back or up-selling with this shop. Just honest auto repair and service.
I'm moving cross-country and I got a trip check for my car and they were super informative and nice. Really good prices and really fast waiting time! Thank you so much for such good service!
Great service at reasonable prices. Jason Payne is so professional. I send all of my friends and family there.
Reasonable prices, clean shop, and great service.
...These guys seem like pretty good people. Paying for car repair is never pleasant but it feels like getting my car fixed here is getting it done right.
