Breaking Down the Combustion Process.

When you are driving around Kansas City area roads your car engine breaks down the gasoline in its tank through combustion so that it can generate energy to move the vehicle.  The waste product from the combustion process is then released into the environment through your vehicle’s exhaust system.

Your car’s exhaust system is not only important, but could also be very dangerous…other than messing up the O-zone layer.  The fumes for the exhaust system could break down the entire system if they are not well discharged.  You also risk being suffocated by the smoke if you leave the engine running in your garage at night!

A well-maintained exhaust system is essential for environmental and safety reasons as well as running-efficiency.  That is why you count on the A-Team Kansas City’s premier auto service center located at 837 Osage Ave. in Kansas City KS.  Call for an appointment at Able Auto Service for all of your winter auto service needs at (913) 321-1030.

No Dead Battery this Winter.

Okay, it’s obvious that some really nasty weather is just around the corner here in Kansas City.  Extreme cold or hot weather are your car battery’s worst enemies.  A typical car battery lasts about 4 to 5 years.  So, how long has it been since yours was replaced or even inspected?  This is a good time to take a look before you end up on the side of the road shivering!

It is recommended that you have your battery checked twice a year.  Why not just before winter and right before summer?  If you make a lot of short trips around KC it will take an even greater toll on your vehicle’s battery.  Why is this?  It boils down to the alternator which does not have time to recharge in under 20 minutes of driving.

You should trust the life-blood of your car to the A-Team.  That is the experienced team of auto mechanics located at Able Auto Service with their modern shop, tools, and techniques over at 837 Osage Ave. in Kansas City KS.  Winter is not fun for your vehicle!  Have it checked thoroughly NOW at Able Auto Service.  Call ahead for an appointment at (913) 321-1030.

Getting to the Heart of the Matter.

Here is a simple equation to remember; your heart is to your body as your engine is to your vehicle.  Instead of pumping blood, your car’s engine pumps air and fuel.  The main function of your engine is to convert air and fuel into rotary motion so it can drive the wheels of the vehicle.  Otherwise, it is just a really heavy paperweight!

It is where fuel, air, pressure, and electricity come together to create the small explosion that moves the car's pistons up and down, thereby creating the power that is necessary to move your vehicle. The combustion chamber is made up of the cylinder, piston, and cylinder head.

Think of the A-Team as your car’s cardiologist.  The techs at Able Auto Service are trained to know every vehicle’s engine inside and out.  What a comfort!  Before, not when, your engine shuts down on you take your car into Able Auto Service located at 837 Osage Ave in Kansas City KS.  Call ahead for an appointment at (913) 321-1030.

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.
