Many people are looking forward to the warm days of summer after a cold winter. It’s now time to give your car AC some extra attention to be ready for summer’s hot temperatures. Your car’s AC unit endures a lot of stress in addition to being used on a daily basis, there is constant exposure to the heat of the engine, road debris and dirt, vibrating, quick stops, and maybe a run-in with a curb. This means that small cracks can form and connections can slowly loosen allowing refrigerant to leak out without you being aware of it until all of a sudden you wonder why your air conditioner is blowing out hot air.

Winter is over and spring is here. Your windshield wipers probably worked hard through the dark wet days of winter. It’s important that you take care of not only the big auto repair services, such as rotating the tires, flushing the transmission, or replacing the air filter, but it’s also important to take care of the often-overlooked small items, such as replacing the windshield wipers! Be ready for those sudden spring showers!

Windshield wipers can become a serious safety hazard if you are caught in a heavy rainstorm and discover that you can barely see. They may squeak, skip and leave streaks as they pass over the glass. Replacing windshield wipers should be considered a routine part of auto repair services for your vehicle.

Here are a couple of maintenance tips from an auto repair shop about windshield wipers:

When it comes to engine repair, an engine rebuild is generally a last resort. But it could be the best financial decision for you. Depending on the severity of the damage in your engine, a better option may be to actually replace it with a used or rebuilt one. Of course, there are certainly good reasons for rebuilding your engine, such as wanting to keep your car’s original parts, or if the rebuild will cost less than replacing the engine.

Why would you want to rebuild an engine instead of replacing it? There are two main reasons—the engine bearings are worn out and the pistons are not seating well. The moving parts of the engine are mounted on engine bearings that are lubricated by the engine oil, thus allowing the crankshaft and camshaft, and other parts to move freely. Given time, these bearings wear out and will need to be replaced. If the piston rings are wearing out and do not seat properly, blow-by results, allowing for oil to be burnt in the combustion chamber.

Do you know what happens when you rebuild an engine? The engine repair specialists at Clausen Automotive can answer your questions.
