What is a Cooling System Flush?

What is a Cooling System Flush?

What is a cooling system, and what exactly does it do? A cooling system flush is a mechanical system that keeps your vehicles from overheating. This process is very important as energy in your vehicle has a conversion process from where gasoline becomes heat energy that fuels your car. This energy and the cooling system work together to prevent your engine from overheating but at the same time, allows your engine to become heated quickly in times of cold weather where your car is at risk of being damaged from the severe cold. In order for your cooling system to blend in and deal with both burning hot and freezing cold temperatures and use them to their advantage, it uses a substance called antifreeze, which has elements of ethylene glycol inside which absorb heat and cool the engine, as well as using the absorbed heat and oxygen to warm the engine when the car is cold. How often is the cooling flush system needed? Your cooling flush system will always be intact and needed, so the q ... read more

What are the Symptoms of Worn Shock Absorbers?

What are the Symptoms of Worn Shock Absorbers?

Your vehicle's shock absorbers are super important to the overall comfort and safety of your drive. Their job is to absorb shock from the road (hence their name) and dampen the force that you actually feel after driving over uneven surfaces or bumps. This also helps you keep better control of your vehicle when it comes to steering and braking.  As you can imagine, with a job mentioned above, the shocks are constantly working under a lot of pressure and force, which is why they do tend to wear down over time. When they are worn, they are significantly less effective and they can start to cause damage to other surrounding parts.  When you drive with worn shocks, you may notice that your ride is bumpier than usual. Besides the actual comfort of your drive, worn shocks can actually begin to damage connecting suspension components and wear down your tires unevenly and excessively. This is why it is important to have your shocks replaced as soon as you notice that they aren ... read more

Your vehicle's wheels can be forced out of alignment due to daily occurrences on the road. It can happen due to uneven roads, debris, hitting curbs, speed bumps, potholes, and more. You may not notice it right away, but even the slightest misalignment of your vehicle's wheels can start to affect other components.  When you drive your car with bad wheel alignment, the tires begin to become worn down, and typically it happens unevenly.

Why is My A/C Not Blowing Cold Air?

Why is My A/C Not Blowing Cold Air?

We know that it can be an annoyance to get into your vehicle on a hot California day only to find that your air conditioning isn't blowing cold air. Air is coming out of the vents, but it feels lukewarm and never gets really cold, even on MAX. Not only are you stuck in a hot car for the remainder of your ride, but you're probably also wondering why your A/C isn't blowing cold air anymore. Let's take a look at some of the causes for this particular symptom. There are actually a few different causes for why a car's air conditioner would stop blowing cold air. The most common is that there is low or no refrigerant left in the A/C system. This is typically caused by a leak somewhere in the air conditioning system, which is not uncommon after certain periods of time. Things like the o-rings and seals can wear down with regular use of your vehicle and cause refrigerant to leak, in turn causing the system to run on low refrigerant.  Another potential cause for no co ... read more
