Why you shouldn't put off repairs!

Why you shouldn't put off repairs!

“It’s time to get that replaced.” Those are words that no car owner wants to hear. After all, replacing, or repairing a car part means that you’re going to spend money, and if you’re short on cash, you may understandably be tempted to put off getting something fixed. After all, if your car is fully functioning, and money is tight, why not wait a little while longer? Indeed, sometimes the answer is, “Why not?” But at Milex Complete Auto Care / Mr. Transmission we will make sure you understand what needs to be complete immediately and those things that you can wait and schedule later.  Some car parts, when they start weakening, can set off a chain reaction and cause other problems with your vehicle. Sometimes trying to save a $60 repair job can translate into a few months from now, or in even a few days, having a $600 problem.

Keep your cool - Check your Air Conditioning

Keep your cool - Check your Air Conditioning

It’s one of those things that we all take for granted. Every time you’ve reached for those buttons, turned those knobs and set those dials, your air conditioner has always worked for you. That chilly blast is a blessing of arctic comfort in a vehicle where interior vehicle temperatures can rise well above 150 degrees in the summer. So, it’s no surprise that you lose your cool when there’s no breeze at the push of a button or no cool when you crank a temperature dial down as far as it will go.   What you can do? Getting stuck in traffic is enough to get even the most patient person hot under the collar, but getting stuck in traffic with no air conditioning in the middle of the summer can leave you steaming — literally. Vehicle HVAC systems are complex, and unless you’re familiar with how to work on them and have the necessary tools, it might be best to leave that to the experts at your local  ... read more
