WARNING - Light is on, what do you do?

A light on the dash that doesn't say - washer fluid is low immediately panics you right?  It can happen when you don't keep up with standard maintenance and with older vehicles you see it due to the age of the vehicle, however here at Auto Care By Kenely, Inc in Orangevale we like to keep you driving happy and listening to your favorite songs or talking to friends and family worry-free!  Here are some quick tips and hard lines in the sand that you do not need to ignore.

FIRST TIP:  Do not ignore a warning light.  However, first line of defense is to stop the vehicle as soon as it is safe and then turn the engine off - wait a few minutes then turn it back on.  If the light is still there - get your manual out to see what the light means (or Google it).

LOW TIRE PRESSURE COSTS YOU MONEY IN MPG

We are here to save you money and keep you save.  We take that seriously.  Did you know that under-inflated tires waste gas? Think how hard it is to walk in sand; you just have to work harder because of the resistance. When Oranevale drivers tires don't have enough air in them, their rolling resistance is dramatically increased and it simply takes more gas to get from one location to another.  Orangevale residents should always check their tire pressure on a regular basis. If they're low, even just a little bit, bring them up to proper pressure. There's a sticker on the inside of the driver's door that gives the vehicle's recommended tire pressure.

And don't rely on your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) to alert you to when you need more air. The TPMS system is set to warn you when pressure drops twenty percent below recommendations. That's severely under-inflated and you needed more air a long time ago. And if you have a slow leak, get it fixed right away. We can get that done quickly at Auto Care by Kenely while you wait. No appointment needed at 8944 Greenback Ln, Orangevale California where safety comes first!

PREVENT A/C FAILURES WITH BASIC SERVICE VISITS!

Cooling system problems are the most common reason for mechanical failure for our Orangevale drivers which is largely avoidable. Our ASE certified technicians see it often. Here’s what Orangevale auto owners need to know about their cooling system. First, the terms coolant and antifreeze are pretty much used interchangeably. The fluid cools your engine while it’s running and it keeps it from freezing when it’s cold.

Your cooling system is filled with a 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze/coolant. So if you’re topping off antifreeze/coolant, it is vital to add the proper amount of each. Distilled water is much better than tap water. Now you can buy pre-mixed coolant so make sure you know what you’re putting in.
