Along Came a Spider.

It starts with some innocuous little chip in the corner of your windshield and before you know it, you’ve got a spider!  Many drivers think that a cracked windshield is just a small annoyance, and the issue does not receive the attention that it deserves.  Safety experts recommend immediate corrective actions.

Here are some ways to stop the spreading

1.  Examine the extent of the crack right away.
2.  Super glue or nail polish may be a temporary solution.
3.  Keep your car in the shade.
4.  Get to a professional as soon as possible.

As to that last point…if you live in the greater Kansas City area trust the auto windshield repair pros at Able Auto Service located at 837 Osage Ave. in Kansas City KS.  The A-Team has been repairing and replacing windshields it seems like since the days of the Edsel!  Call for an appointment before a crack turns into a spider (913) 321-1030.

Just Roll your Window Down.

Sure, it’s easy this time of year in KC.  You just roll down your window (unless it’s raining, of course) and breeze down the road with the spring air flowing over you.  You know this moderate weather won’t last very long.  Maybe you just turned off the heater in your car and soon you will be reaching for the A/C.

When you do, will it crank out those BTU’S like it did last summer?  Your car's air conditioning system works just like a refrigerator or your home air conditioning unit. The purpose of the system is to remove hot air from the inside of your vehicle.  That all seems simple enough, but getting it back to its peak performance may not be.

At Able Auto Service the A-Team will inspect your air conditioning lines and seals, we will check your freon level and flush your coolant.  This, and maybe more, goes into to keeping you cool in the summer when the heat and humidity hit with full force.  We are Kansas City’s air conditioning auto care specialists.  Make an appointment today by calling (913) 321-1030.

Engine Repair = Brain Surgery.

I know it is a radical concept, but your vehicle’s engine IS its brain.  When the engine needs repair you need to count on an “automotive brain surgeon” to fix it.  Keeping your car’s engine in tip-top condition is very simply life and death for the future of your ride.  Never, ever take it lightly!

Engine problems occur for any of a variety of reasons.  What your car may need is –

1.  A complete reprogramming of its computer
2.  Diagnosis of the engine
3.  Looking carefully at the evaporation emission system
4.  Of course, analyzing the ABS light.

There are many other things that a trained professional knows to look for.  The engine diagnostic professionals at Able Auto Service have had decades of experience…long before your vehicle had a “computerized brain”.  Count on the A-Team for all of your Kansas City area engine diagnoses.  Call (913) 321-1030 for a check-up at our 837 Osage Ave. location.

Is it Time to Check your Brakes?

Most of us may wait until the sound or feel of braking makes us aware that our car’s brakes need to be checked.  That may not be soon enough!  Most vehicles should have their tires rotated at least every six months, and that is a good time to have the brakes inspected. A mechanic can check the thickness of the pads and the condition of the brake hardware.

So, what about brake pads?  How often should they, perhaps be replaced?  Generally speaking, brake pads should be replaced after about 50,000 miles. Now, some need to be replaced after 25,000, while others can last for 70,000 miles – it all depends on a variety of factors.  As always, consult your owner’s manual.

When it’s time to address these issues stop in or call the A-Team.  We are Able Auto Service the Kansas City area’s leading shop for brake repair and inspection.  With a location at 837 Osage Ave. in Kansas City KS we are convenient to the entire area.  Don’t wait for that annoying squeal!  Have your brakes checked at Able Auto Service.  Call ahead at (913) 321-1030.
