Ways to Summerize Your Vehicle

Ways to Summerize Your Vehicle

Driving in warm summer months here in California can definitely take a toll on your vehicle. The high temperature and increase in driving can add wear and tear, so these helpful tips on how to summerize your vehicle can ensure that your car is properly prepared and ready to take the heat. Here are some ways you can summerize your vehicle: Check the level of coolant - low coolant can quickly lead to engine overheating, especially in the summer. If the coolant level is low, we recommend bringing your vehicle into our shop. There may be a leak in the system, and just topping off the coolant may not solve the issue if the coolant continues to leak. We will also ensure that the cooling fan is in proper working order.    Test your vehicle's air conditioning system for proper function.   Take note of the age of your vehicle's battery, and if its been over 3 years since you last replaced it, you may want to have it tested. We can do so at our shop to see how much j ... read more

Is it time for an Oil Change in your car

Is it time for an Oil Change in your car

Is it time to change the oil in your car? Over time that oil breaks down and becomes contaminated with dust, dirt and debris from the engine as well as the environment. When that happens, oil can't properly do its job.The team at RM Automotive wants you to know the top reasons oil and filter changes are so important to a car's well-being. An oil change consists of removing the old oil from a vehicle's engine and replacing it with new, fresh oil. The engine oil filter is usually also changed at the same time. Automobile engines have many moving parts. As these parts move and rub against each other, the force of friction creates heat. Bring your car into RM Automotive for your next oil change. Make an appointment today at RM Automotive and let us change your oil.

Your TIming Belt

Your TIming Belt

It just might be time for a new timing belt on your car. Let RM Automotive check to see if it is time to change the timing belt on your car. When you replace the timing belt usually the water pump is changed as well. If the timing belt snaps, they run into each other, causing bent valves (most common), cylinder head or camshaft damage, and possibly piston and cylinder wall damage. While it is possible that no damage could occur from a snapped belt on an interference engine, such a case is unlikely. Bring your car into Rm Automotive and let us check out your car and see if it is time to replace your timing belt
