Crank up the Heat.

Yes, it is that time of year in the Kansas City area when fall quickly turns to winter and we need reliable heating in our vehicles.  Here are the basics.  The heater core is a center of activity in your car.  The blower motor blows air through the heater core and to the passenger compartment inside of your automobile.

What happens is that hot coolant from the vehicle's engine is passed through a winding tube of the core, which is a heat exchanger between coolant and cabin air.  Fins attached to the core tubes serve to increase the surface for heat transfer to air that is forced past them by a fan, thereby heating the passenger compartment.

It may seem complicated and certainly something that area garage mechanics may NOT want to tackle.  That is why you begin every winter with a visit to Able Auto Service.  The A-Team will check your vehicle’s heating system and make sure that it is ready for the rugged winter ahead.  Just drive into 837 Osage Ave in Kansas City KS or call ahead at (913) 321-1030.

Like Clockwork…It’s Oil Change Time.

Just as the season changes why not change the oil in your vehicle?  Opinions vary a great deal on how often you need to change the oil in your car, but there is one belief that persists.  That is, changing the oil in your ride is the surest, cheapest, and easiest way to keep your car running smoothly for many years to come.

There is an inevitable truth about car engines…not changing your oil often enough will cause it to run less efficiently, then over time, it can cause the engine components to warp and wear out. The lack of lubrication between vital parts will also contribute to these problems. Eventually, if the oil is NOT changed, the entire engine will shut down and have to be replaced.

If it costs $2500-$3000 to replace the engine…or have your oil changed quickly and inexpensively every three months which would you choose?  With autumn headed our way, please make an appointment at Able Auto Service.  They are the Kansas City area’s A-Team of auto repair located at 837 Osage Ave in Kansas City KS.  Call ahead at (913) 321-1030.

No One Can Underestimate the Safety of your Brakes.

No matter how you slice it, the quality of your vehicle’s braking system is THE most important of all safety features on your ride.  Think about the entire package.  If you are traveling at high speeds on Kansas City area roadways you need plenty of time to make a safe stop.  Since you are not Fred Flintstone, you have to rely on your braking system!

This is not only the safety of your entire family, but also the animals that may dart out in front of your car in the fall demanding quick reaction and quality brakes.  Here is an easy habit to get into…have your brake system checked twice a year.  And, since it is nearly time for a change of seasons why not make it at the beginning of fall and the start of spring?

Now that we have established the why and the when, let’s turn our attention to the who.  That answer is Kansas City area brake and automotive repair specialist Able Auto Service.  The A-Team is ready to serve your vehicle’s every mechanical need at their 837 Osage Ave. location in Kansas City KS.  Call ahead at (913) 321-1030.
