    Vehicle Tips

    According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.

    The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)

    Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.

    Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.

    Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.

    A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.

    Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.

    Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.

    Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.

    Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.

    Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.

    Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.

    Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.

    Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.

    Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.

    Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.

    Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.

    Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.

    Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.

    Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.

    What Our Customers

    Are Saying

    Amazing customer service - was 30 minutes before closing time and I needed an emergency battery replacement for very corroded terminals. I bought my battery at O'Reilly's who recommended GA's since they couldn't get it off. While the place is not flashy they have the right equipment, knowledge, and caring - and the price was fair. Thanks Antares!

    EXCELLENT SERVICE!!! ANTARES IS THE BEST. I HAVE BEEN GOING TO G&A FOR NEARLY 20 YEARS. I WILL NEVER SWITCH TO ANOTHER MECHANIC ??

    Antares is kind and honest. He does what he can to help find what is wrong with your vehicle without trying trying to push other work you may not necessarily need at that time. My car was a challenge to find the issue but we ended up solving the issue!

    I could not be more pleased with this shop. They were honest and very helpful in explaining what went wrong with my Mazda 3. I was prepared to pay far more than I did, but they found the problem and it was relatively minor. Antares, the owner, is an honest intelligent man.

    I've been using this shop for over 12 years. Great work. Excellent customer service.

    I had an incredible experience when I took my vehicle in to be serviced at GA Automotive. The staff was knowledgeable, professional and gave suggestions I felt they would if it were their own car. I felt 100% confident in the work they did and will continue going back.

    This location has 2 separate auto shops, and I highly recommend both. I initially went to them through a friend's referral, and have now referred several friends myself. Both shops are very honest and good at doing a thorough job. They don't try to pressure you to do unnecessary jobs, and will tell you when something actually shouldn't be done since it might harm the car (such as a transmission system pressurized flush that many other mechanics will try to do).

    I have had to take in my car and my sons car in for brakes and , belt and a malfunctioning window. They not only fixed them in one day but the prices was 3 times less than the dealership!!! I dropped the car off at night and picked it up the next evening. I'm a working single mom so getting my car quickly and affordability is a huge plus!! The owner is very personable too. Bye Toyota dealership, you have been replaced!

    I just had my car towed by G A Automotive and I am extremely satisfied with their services. They came on time as promised and charged me an extremely reasonable and fair fee which was much cheaper than all the other quotes I had gotten from other wrecker/towing companies. I highly recommend them to anybody who needs towing services.

    I was referred to this business by several co-workers, who respectively have been bringing their cars here for years. One co-worker is handy with cars himself, but because Anteras is so affordable and honest, brings his cars here for needed maintenance. Any customer you speak with at the shop is likely a long-time loyal customer. Your car is in good hands with Anteras and team.
