Why do my brakes shake when I’m slowing down?

"Pulsation" or "shaking" while braking may indicate an issue with the braking system on your vehicle. You should have the brakes, suspension and tires inspected to determine the issue. Something as simple as a sticking caliper or warped brake rotor may be the culprit.#brakes #brakerepair #rotor

Are Your Tires Ready for Fall?

Heading into our first full week of fall on the east coast it is an important time to have your tires inspected. The slipperiest time of year is when wet leaves coat the asphalt. Tires on your car will generally last 3-5 years depending on your driving. Any tire worn below 4/32 will have a measurable loss of traction. Stop by to have your tires evaluated.#tires #falltires #tiresale

Should I Change Transmission Fluid?

YES. Like other vital automotive fluids, transmission fluid deteriorates over time. Just as motor oil is the lifeblood of the engine transmission fluid is the lifeblood of the transmission. The speed of the fluid deterioration will vary dependent on driving, hauling heavy loads, trailer towing. These types of driving raise the operating temperature of the transmission, and heat puts more strain on the transmission and the fluid, which helps facilitate gear shifts, cools the transmission and lubricates internal parts.#transmissionfluid #automatictransmission #automotivemaintenance

How Much Does a Fuel Pump Cost?

Gone are the days of your local mechanic reaching under the hood, taking out a mechanical fuel pump with a few hand tools and giving you a bill for $100. With strict emission standards and increased performance standards the simple fuel pump has changed greatly. The majority of vehicles on the road will now have an electric fuel pump mounted inside of the gas tank. This pump has a high demand and is constantly running whenever the engine is. These pumps can cost as much as $500 – $1500 dollars! The next level of fuel control is "GDI" or "gasoline direct injection". These fuel pumps are mounted on the engine and capable of making thousands of pounds of pressure. The GDI fuel system has even greater levels of control for increasing fuel economy.#fuelpump #electricfuelpump #gdi
