Did You Know About Alternator

Posted on February 21,13 by truck2

When you replace your alternator, it’s a good idea to replace your serpentine belt at the same time. Your technician will have to remove the old belt anyway so he might as well put on a new one when he’s done. And the number-1 alternator killer is a battery that’s on its last legs; the alternator has to overwork to keep it charged. If your battery is 5 years old; ask your Albuquerque technician if it’s time to replace it. At Dearholt AutoCare in Albuquerque we install quality NAPA replacement parts. Give us a call at 505.857.0868 and let us help keep you on the road.

Did You Know About Spark Plugs

Posted on February 21,13 by truck2

The “spark” made by your spark plug is like a tiny bolt of lightning; it’s that powerful. Each time it sparks, a wee bit of material is lost from the electrodes. Over the millions and millions of sparks that happen over the thousands of miles you drive, enough material is lost from the spark plug to affect its performance. That’s one reason they need to be replaced. At Dearholt AutoCare in Albuquerque we install quality NAPA replacement parts. Give us a call at 505.857.0868 and let us help keep you safely and economically on the road.

Did You Know About Oil Change

Posted on February 21,13 by truck2

The most important thing you can do to keep your vehicle running for a long time is to change your oil on schedule. With a full service oil change, your other fluids are checked and topped off so you don’t run into problems from low fluids. You technician may see a developing problem and he’ll remind you of any other recommended maintenance. At Dearholt AutoCare in Albuquerque we install quality NAPA replacement parts.

Did You Know About Differential Service

Posted on February 21,13 by truck2

When a car makes a turn, its outside wheels could travel up to 5 feet further than the inside wheels. Compensating for that is the job of your differential. Ask you service advisor for the recommended service interval. Proper service will help your differential last as long as possible.

Did You Know About Drum Brakes

Posted on February 21,13 by truck2

Some vehicles have disc brakes on the front and drum brakes on the rear. A thorough brake inspection will uncover any maintenance or repair issues that need to be addressed to keep you stopping safely. If you are hearing unusual sounds when you brake or if your pedal is too hard to push or has a mushy feel, bring it in for a brake inspection right away.

Did You Know About Alignment

Posted on February 21,13 by truck2

Wheels are aligned with specific settings for toe-in and toe-out, positive and negative camber, and positive and negative castor. Each vehicle model can have different settings. Poor alignment affects your handling and causes your tires to wear very quickly. At Dearholt AutoCare in Albuquerque we install quality NAPA replacement parts.

Did You Know About Power Brakes

Posted on February 21,13 by truck2

Hydraulic brake fluid replacement is not listed in some owner’s manual service schedules. Ask your service advisor about when he would recommend a power brake fluid replacement. Fresh fluid has adequate levels of anti-corrosion additives that can help protect expensive brake components. At Dearholt AutoCare in Albuquerque we install quality NAPA replacement parts.

Did You Know About Axles

Posted on February 21,13 by truck2

The main job of your axles is to transfer power from your engine to the drive wheels. If you hear a strange noise coming from your axles, or if your axle seal is leaking or your CV boot is torn, the axle needs to be inspected and serviced or repaired.

Did You Know About Battery

Posted on February 21,13 by truck2

Car batteries last longer in cold climates than in warm. Cold starts put a greater demand on batteries, but heat is a big factor in car battery life. We can test you battery for how well it holds a charge and to estimate how much life it has left. At Dearholt AutoCare in Albuquerque we install quality NAPA replacement parts.

Did You Know About Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Posted on February 21,13 by truck2

Your Tire Pressure Monitoring System warning light goes off when a tire is 25 percent under inflated. If your recommended pressure is 32 psi, 25 percent below means you are at 24 psi; which is severely under inflated. At that low pressure, your safety is at risk, your fuel economy is hurt, and your tire is wearing out too fast. Check your pressure at least once a month.
