You’re on your way to work, running late when all of a sudden the “Check Engine” light illuminates on your dashboard.  Should you drive straight to your auto repair shop or can you go on to work?  Do you need to pull over and call a tow truck?  First of all, don’t panic!  There are several reasons the check engine light may be triggered. 

What could cause the check engine light to come on, you ask?  It could just be a loose gas cap. A loose, cracked, or faulty gas cap can cause fuel to evaporate, thus causing your check engine light to come on  So pull over (as soon as it’s safe) and make sure your gas cap is on tight. If this was indeed the trigger, your check engine light should go off within 10 or 20 miles once you’re back on the road.

Wondering what could cause the check engine light to come on? Schedule an engine service at Elk River Tire & Auto for a diagnostic test.

What do you look for when shopping for a new car?  Engine capacity, fuel efficiency, size, or level of comfort. Probably not the battery!  That is probably last on your list. However, the battery is one of the most important parts of today’s modern vehicle.  It has to manage a massive range of tasks, from starting the engine to powering in-car computers.

Most vehicle owners know that that engine oil needs to be changed, air filter replaced, and tires rotated, but then forget about their car battery. Taking care of your car battery is one of the most effective ways to keep your car running smoothly and without problems. Did you know that dead batteries are one of the top causes for roadside assistance calls?

So, what is the expected life of a car battery? Batteries will become worn down and inefficient within three years of everyday use in normal conditions. Just like your computer or smart-phone battery becomes less efficient with every charge, so your car battery gradually deteriorates every time it’s charged up by the vehicle’s engine.

Do you know what is the expected life of a car battery? Ask your mechanic to inspect your car battery to see if it’s time for a car battery replacement.
