Has your vehicle seemed more sluggish than usual, possibly lacking power when passing a slower vehicle or when trying to go up a hill? Has a dashboard light come on and you don’t know why? With winter here to stay for a while, it would be smart to schedule a car tune up, which should include a diagnostic test.

What does a car diagnostic test tell you? Today's modern vehicles have computer processors, microchips and sensors so if you want to know what is really going on inside your vehicle, a diagnostics test can reveal problems associated with the engine and transmission, oil and gas tanks, exhaust system, and other systems.

With the use of a specialized computer linked to your vehicle, your mechanic can pinpoint exactly where a problem may exist, producing the fault codes which are stored in the vehicle’s memory system. It is possible to identify the cause of a problem quickly so that the right repair can be made before the problem gets bigger.

Wondering what does a car diagnostic test tell you? Talk to the auto mechanics at Rod’s Tire and Automotive for more information about a car tune up.

Did you know that the battery is one of the most important parts of a vehicle? It manages a massive range of tasks and devices, from starting the engine to powering in-car computers. Auto shops report that flat or damaged batteries are one of the top causes for roadside assistance calls. The batteries are simply too old for the job they’re performing.

After four or five years, most car batteries will be almost completely unreliable. Even with proper maintenance, many car batteries will become inefficient within three years of everyday use in normal conditions. Cold weather puts a two-fold strain on the battery by reducing its power output (up to 50% at 20 degrees F) and increasing the amps needed to crank a cold engine (up to double the amps at 20 degrees F).

Many driveability and starting problems may be due to low battery voltage. Other items that should always be inspected and may need to be replaced include battery cables, anti-corrosion washers for the battery terminals, battery tray and/or battery hold-down hardware and clamps.

Wondering how often do you need to replace your car battery? Your mechanic can let you know if it’s time for a car battery replacement.
