Check engine light codes are common in older cars--what is yours telling you?

 

No matter how high-quality your vehicle is, no matter how reliable and durable it is, all things succumb to general wear and tear over time. And while that doesn't mean that you need to trade in your vehicle, by any means, it does mean that you may just need to be more aware of the unique care that an older vehicle requires.

And something you might start to see as you rack up miles on your trusty car, truck, or SUV is that small, glowing "Check Engine" light on your dashboard.

While this warning light isn’t nearly the…

Back to school time is the best time to clean up your car in Batavia

 

Ahh, back to school. The new shoes, new supplies, new friends, and even new schools. And when you finally drop the kids off for that first day of school, you can breathe a big sigh of relief.

That is, until you take a look over your shoulder. And you see the evidence of a very long three months of summer with the family. Stains, crumbs, sports gear, wrappers, toys... and smells ranging from picked flowers to wet dogs to teenager.

How Do Anti Fog Treatments Work?

Perhaps you've seen the above video, or similar, going around. It's one of the hottest car-care tips on the internet right now: use shaving cream to fog-proof your windshield.

It's a great tip because it really works. Who knew all that shaving cream you've been wasting on your hair could have been spent keeping your visibility clear on a rainy day.

The Pneumatic Tire is Harder to Fix, but You'll be Glad You Have It!

From punctures, to blow-outs, to slow leaks, the headache of keeping a pneumatic tire properly maintained makes you wonder why you can't just use solid rubber tires that would never have these problems!

In 1888, all tires were made of solid rubber, unless they were made of metal. Though it was softer than plain metal bands, solid rubber still didn't have…
