Drivers are keeping a close watch on gasoline prices as they rise due to the peak summer season. However, there are several ways to lower the cost of a fill up by following the tips listed below. First try to fill up your vehicle early in the morning as the gas temperature tends to be cooler, hence creating denser fuel. The machines used to read gas operate more efficient and you end up with more gas for your money. Second, find gas stations with several other stations in the nearby area. This drives competitive prices and will lower your fuel cost. Third, fill up your vehicle early in the week as prices for fuel tend to rise in the middle of the week and continue to do so until Saturday. This is caused by the rise in fuel consumption as the weekend gets closer and more travelers hit the roads. Last, do your research on line and use your phone apps to find the best deals. This week’s tips from your Team at DitY Auto Repair have a safe and fun summer.

 

The cost of vehicle operation and ownership are increasing yearly. There are many factors that go with owning a car or truck to include maintenance, fuel, tire cost, insurance, and depreciation. Costs are going up with inflation, which means owners should do there research before purchasing a vehicle and not base the affordability on the loan payment. Vehicles with high performance engines and tires require more expensive repairs due to the upgraded parts. This is especially true with European cars, since most come with upgrades from the factory. Used car sales are on the rise as well, but without proper maintenance the potential buyers need to consider all the cost associated with purchasing that vehicle. There are many sources on line to assist car buyers on associated cost with owning a vehicle. This gives owners a summary of actual ownership cost and what kind of vehicle fits there budget. Edmunds.com, AAA, and KKB.com are all sites that offer information on vehicle ownership. This week’s tips from the Team at DitY Auto Repair have a safe and fun summer.

Many drivers are unfamiliar with the terms timing belt, timing chain, or camshaft drive belt. These components are very important parts of a vehicles engine, and they must be replaced as required by the manufacturer. Servicing of these belts or chains allows crankshafts to drive the camshaft, which opens and closes engine valves without failure. These parts all work together in perfect timing, and failure to maintain them will lead to immanent engine failure. As part of this maintenance the engine usually receives all new tensioners, engine seals, cam seals, belt or chain, water pump, and coolant. Ask your local mechanic or dealer for exact details on what parts are being replaced.  The service is usually done every 90-100k.
