One Pot Hole Too Many.

You finally did it, you hit that pot hole on a Kansas City roadway that messed up the suspension or alignment of your vehicle.  If we have driven long enough we know the feeling of our car wanting to pull to one side or the other.  Pot holes that pop up in our area throughout the winter are responsible for some of that.

Stay in control of your vehicle!  Not only is it a safety issue, but your tires will wear out much faster and that is an extra expense that you do not need to incur until its time has come.  Technology is an integral part of what it takes to be the best.  Staying on top of all the advances keeps us ahead of the curve (no pun intended!)

We at Able Auto Service are ready to service your vehicle and get it back on the road before your alignment causes real hazards.  We call ourselves The A-Team…a team of professional auto mechanics that will handle all of your car’s needs.  Make an appointment at our shop located at 837 Osage Ave. in Kansas City KS.  Call ahead (913) 321-1030.

How does Winter affect your Exhaust System?

Like most things in the life of your vehicle this one has a checklist as well.  Your vehicle’s exhaust system is an important part and should be checked at least once a year.  This time of year, you have to be careful of damages to your exhaust system from icy road conditions.  You MUST avoid harmful gasses seeping into your car!

Exhaust systems can be dangerous because exhaust contains carbon monoxide that could be deadly if it reaches the passenger area of your car. Carbon monoxide has no color or odor, making it difficult to detect AND lethal. Any damages and even small exhaust leaks can cause these gases to flow into your car and impair your judgement while driving.

See that…you may be overcome with noxious fumes before you realize it!  This is no time to hesitate.  Have your exhaust system checked and maintained by Able Auto Service.  The A-Team is Kansas City’s auto and exhaust system repair expert.  Make an appointment at 837 Osage Ave. by calling (913) 321-1030.

Why do Car Batteries Die in the Dead of Winter?

Just when we can least afford it you guessed it…it happens!  You are stuck in freezing weather with a dead car battery.  Winter is a fairly common time for car batteries to die, but you know that.  Even though the hot weather is a real battery killer, for a number of reasons, cold weather is also hard on car batteries.

But, here is the real culprit…temperature extremes.  According to Industrial Battery Products, lead acid battery capacity drops about one-fifth from normal in freezing weather, then goes down to about 50 percent of normal when temperatures sink to about -22 degrees Fahrenheit.  While KC may not experience something THAT extreme it will be bitter cold.

A dead battery is not just inconvenient…it can be downright dangerous!  DO NOT get caught out in the elements this winter.  Make an appointment at you Kansas City Kansas car battery professional Able Auto Service.  The A-Team will make sure that your car’s battery will be one of the least of your worries.  Stop in 837 Osage Ave. or call (913) 321-1030.

Controlling the Climate.

Is this a new Marvel super hero?  That sounds interesting for sure, but the reference here is to climate control for your vehicle.  This time of year, in the Kansas City area, that is REALLY important!  One of the worst things that can happen is a conked-out heater in your car as you go to the grocery store.

We know that you are aware of the changing road conditions when a KC meteorologist drops a bombshell, but have you had your vehicle’s heating system checked recently?  You may not even be noticing slight changes in your car’s heater.  Maybe it isn’t kicking out those BTU’s with the same force that it used to.

The time is now to have your car’s heating system checked and repaired, if needed.  We hope that you will make a New Year’s resolution and schedule a maintenance check-up at Able Auto Service.  The A-Team is ready to serve you in 2018 as we have done for decades.  Stop in at our 837 Osage Ave. location or call (913) 321-1030.
