Prepare your vehicle for upcoming road trips

Prepare your vehicle for upcoming road trips

E As we enter into the warmer weather, summer is rapidly approaching, vacation destinations are top of mind and planning is in motion. A lot more people will be driving this year, as opposed to flying to their chosen location. While making your itinerary and deciding on beach gear and suitable clothing, you may want to consider getting your vehicle prepared as well. The extra weight of luggage, bicycles, and passengers in your vehicle can put an extra burden on your vehicle.       A quick visit to our shop can help prevent some unfortunate mishaps along the way. Checking the condition of your tires, making certain that they have proper pressure and tread can make for a smoother ride and help in obtaining better gas mileage.

Recover from winter suspension damage

Recover from winter suspension damage

We can definitely say that we had what many consider a “real” winter this year with the cold weather, snow, and ice.  One of the impacts of multiple snowstorms is that the potholes in the roads that are created by the ground freezing and thawing, salt and brine solutions being applied to the road service, and the plows that move the snow off of the roads keeping a safe driving environment.    Now is a great time to have your vehicle’s suspension looked over. The suspension components that can be affected by these harsh winter roads are the vehicle’s shocks, struts, ball joints, and steering components. This winter driving could have also affected your vehicle’s wheel alignment and as simple as losing a weight that keeps your tires balanced. At Automotive Magic we have the equip ... read more

Why having your differential service can help prolong your vehicles life.

Why having your differential service can help prolong your vehicles life.

Vehicle manufacturers spend a lot of money and time on ensuring their vehicles that are properly maintained will last for many thousands of miles, these manufacturers hire top level engineers that understand vehicle fluids and how long these fluids will last under different conditions.  One of several fluids that are used in today's trucks and  sport utility vehicles is differential gear oil. Every manufacturer has a recommended service interval for each differential gear oil for normal driving and severe driving. Anyone that tows any type of trailer(boat, travel trailer, landscaping trailer, etc.) or that uses their vehicle for snow plowing will need to follow the severe service  interval.  These vehicles that tow and plow, or even used off-road, work the vehicle’s differential hard and create a lot of heat which lessens the life of the differential gear oil ... read more
