Vacation Checklist.

Okay, it’s about that time to plan your summer vacation.  Maybe you have already formulated your checklist.  It might consist of a first aid kit, the right clothes for where you are traveling, enough money to be able (remember that word for later) to enjoy the entire trip, and if you are going by car, an oil change at least.

It seems so automatic, but for many drivers we go far too long between oil changes.  Wouldn’t it be a good habit to get into having your oil changed at the beginning of each season?  That is the perfect three-month interval.  That just makes sense in helping to insure that the summer of ’18 vacation will be memorable for all of the right reasons.

A check-up and an oil change starts and ends at Able (there’s that word again).  Able Auto Service is the Kansas City area’s top destination to have your vehicle checked for upcoming increased summer travel.  Always trust you ride to the A-Team located at 837 Osage Ave. in Kansas City KS.  Call ahead for an appointment at (913) 321-1030.

Time to Push the A/C button.

It is nearly that time of year when you will crank up the a/c in your Kansas City area car, pick-up, or SUV.  A detailed inspection of your car’s air conditioning system needs to be done every year.  If you ignore it, the results may be far more expensive in the end.  AND, if it smells, the system should be disinfected.

Mold from your vehicle’s a/c system can spread each time that you turn on the air conditioning.  The exposure that you and your passengers get could be dangerous to your health.  This is especially true of people with respiratory conditions.  So, get it checked and clean it up BEFORE you crank it up!

In the Kansas City area your vehicle’s air conditioning system should be checked and maintained by the best.  That is the A-Team at Able Auto Service.  Their technicians have dozens of years of experience in dealing with condensers and compressors.  Make an appointment at their 837 Osage location in Kansas City KS by calling (913) 321-1030.

All is Well…Spring has Sprung.

So, you think that just because your car’s battery made it through the grueling KC winter that you are home free?  Not so fast, there is a long, hot summer ahead in the Kansas City area.  Your battery does not respect the seasons.  It can go bad any time and, worst of all…anywhere!

Here are some signs that your battery may be losing its juice –

1.  Flick on your headlights.  Are they dimmer than usual?
2.  Is the engine cranking slower, and slower, and slower?
3.  Make sure it is not your alternator rather than your battery.
4.  Above all else…how old is it?

Don’t get caught this Spring or Summer or any time for that matter with a dead battery.  You’ve got important places to go and this should never be a reason why you are stranded.  Count on the A-Team.  They are the team of expert mechanics at Able Auto Service.  Drive into 837 Osage Ave WITHOUT needing a jump.  Or, call ahead for an appointment at (913) 321-1030.

Choosing the Right Car Tires.

They definitely make them better these days.  That’s the good news.  But, finding the exact, right tires for your vehicle can be difficult.  If you get it wrong, what can happen is that you can drastically hobble your car's performance and its ability to tackle any type of weather.  Maybe that’s not a problem in San Diego, but it is in Kansas City!

Car tires need to be replaced every three or four years.  Most car tires fall into three basic categories; all-season, summer, and winter. Most people buy all-season tires because it's easier and cheaper than buying one set for the winter and another for summer.  While all-season is the most practical, it is not necessarily the right choice for every vehicle.

One place that IS the right choice for car tires in the Kansas City area every time is Able Auto Service.  The A-Team located at 837 Osage Ave. in Kansas City KC will troubleshoot your vehicle’s tires and recommend the best choice for your ride at an affordable price.  Give them a call for an appointment at (913) 321-1030.
