One Stop Auto Service Offers Auto Repair Services You Can Count On!
According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
One Stop Automotive did a great job on my Honda Accord at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend One Stop Automotive.
Tony is my guy. Might be a little more money than others, but I trust that he and his crew do a quality job on my 2004 BMW.
Great service! Definitely tried to work with me when it came to the price. I was in a really bad situation at the time, and he took the time to understand where I was coming from. My Subaru got into a little mess and my hood got dented; they did an amazing job finding the right color and putting it on! That was over a year ago now, and my car still looks new. I would recommend giving them a call when it comes to good body work. Not to mention it's right off of the highway! Thank you for your good service.
Tony at One Stop worked on my truck's brake system, and he completed the job on time and within quote he gave me. I have also had One Stop patch up some tires - quick and easy service. Now Tony at One Stop services my fleet vehicle.
In the years we've lived here (20+), Tony has ALWAYS been there: diagnosing, repairing, staying late when a car is needed ASAP, going out of his way to help in any way he can. We'd be lost without him...and we'd be walking.
Great job fixing my car! Saved me a bunch of $$ too...will definitely go back!
I was so surprised how fast the mechanic fixed my tire for me. He didn't even have to take the tire off the car. Two thumbs up for One Stop Auto Service.
Great as usual. Friendly, professional, really let you know they value and want your business.
Tony, thank you for the quality service and keeping your pricing as low as possible for the average customer. It's good to be able to take your car to someone you can trust.
Awesome work. I really do appreciate you taking me in on short notice.
These guys do everything. Very knowledgeable. No job was too small for them nor too big. I brought my wife's car in just for a service, and they let me know everything they found. Regardless to say, but I brought my old pickup truck down, and they got her right back in tip-top shape. Thanks Tony and staff.
