Battery Replacement For Your sedan

Modern cars and trucks in and around Reno run on 12 volt electrical systems. 12 volts is enough to get the job done for Reno car owners without having so much power that there is danger of electrocution. But today’s vehicles have more electrical components and do-dads than ever before. This really strains your electrical system, making it hard for the battery to keep up. Think about it: electric seats, seat heaters, power locks, windows and sun roofs. And then us NV auto owners have all the power outlets for our cell phones, computers, and DVD players.

We also have navigation systems and powerful stereos. Plus there are all the engine and transmission computers, traction control, stability control, anti-lock brakes, sensors and on and on. Even the security system is running off the battery while the car is turned off.

Fortunately, battery technology has given Reno drivers resilient batteries that are able to meet these strenuous requirements. But the fact is, batteries just wear out over time. Eventually, every battery gets to the point where it cannot hold enough of a charge to start your sedan. Sometimes batteries need to be replaced because they have just worn out. Or, in other cases, they have developed a leak which makes it even more vital to get it replaced.

Special safety precautions are taken when working with batteries in the shop at Castrol Premium Lube Express in Reno, NV. These precautions also apply to anyone who is poking around the battery. Batteries contain sulfuric acid that can damage your eyes and burn your skin, so safety glasses and rubber gloves are a must for any Reno car owners working with their battery. Be careful to not spill acid on your clothes or the sedan’s paint. Of course, avoid short circuiting the battery as well.

Replacement car batteries come in all shapes and sizes. Some cars have limited space that requires a specially shaped battery to fit. Larger engines require more powerful batteries to get them started. If you live where it gets cold in NV you will need a more powerful battery because engines are harder to start when it is cold.

Sometimes there is quite a price range in Reno auto part stores for batteries that will work in a particular car. Think of it as “good”, “better” and “best”. More expensive batteries have a longer warranty and are guaranteed to last longer. As with most things, paying a little more up front saves income in the long run for Reno car owners.

9924239_sAccording to an article fivecentnickel.com, “Being Prepared for Auto Repairs and Auto Maintenance”

“If you don’t control your money, your money will control you. Today let’s focus on getting control over the cost of auto repair and maintenance.

The cost of owning a car

Here’s a look at all the budget categories you may want consider when attempting to nail down your auto expenses:

  1. Purchase price – payment (cash and/or financing and interest) to acquire the vehicle
  2. Taxes – paid when you buy or sell the vehicle
  3. Fuel – the gasoline/fuel you need to make the vehicle run
  4. Insurance – all levels auto insurance including personal liability, collision, comprehensive, roadside assistance, etc.
  5. Tags and registration – state vehicle registration, license plates, and renewal tags
  6. Repair and maintenance – tires, oil changes, and all other repairs and maintenance necessary to keep your vehicle operational

Today we’ll set aside the first five categories and focus solely on budgeting for repairs and maintenance.

Benefits of controlling these costs

Many of the benefits of controlling your auto maintenance costs are similar to those you experience when gaining control over any area of your money, so let’s focus on those that are specific to the topic. Proper budgeting for auto repair and maintenance will allow you to:

  • Have a better relationship and better communication with your auto mechanic
  • Prepare/plan better so you don’t have to race to get oil changes before your next trip
  • Reduce your maintenance expenses going forward
  • Relax in the knowledge that you’re prepared

You can achieve all of these things simply by setting aside enough money to cover your expenses. That way you won’t have to stress or worry about where the money is coming from — if it can be found at all.” To read the entire article click here.

Selecting the Right Tires for Your Vehicle in Reno

Selecting the Right Tires for Your Vehicle in Reno

When shopping for tires, do you know how to select a good tire replacement? Learn what to look for when you’re searching for your next set of tires.

car repair According to an article at dmv.org, “Time for New Tires”

“The easiest way to shop for tires if you know nothing about tires is to take your vehicle to a dealership. They will replace your old tires with exactly the kind of new tires you need?in some cases, more than what you need. This ease comes with extra costs, so you may want to shop for tires yourself.

You can begin the process by checking your owner’s manual to find the exact tire size and type recommended for your vehicle.

Then, take into consideration your needs, such as what kind of ride you want, how much driving you’ll be doing, how heavy a load your vehicle will be carrying, and the weather conditions in your area. For example, you probably won’t need to purchase snow tires if you live in California.

There are so many places you can buy tires these days, so you may want to shop around first for sales or prices that best suit your budget. Also ask your family members, friends, and coworkers where they purchase tires?remember, word of mouth is often the most truthful form of advertisement.

Choose a store that employees a knowledgeable, helpful staff. A salesman who knows what tires are recommended for your vehicle, as well as the kinds of tires that will meet your driving needs, will be your best friend during the shopping experience.

Another factor to consider when choosing where to purchase your new tires is installment. If you don’t know how to replace your own tires, and you don’t have anyone close by to replace them for you, you’re going to want to purchase them from a store that will replace them for you. This might add to the cost, but it’s better than driving down the highway at 65 mph only to have a tire unexpectedly pop off.” To read the entire article click here.
