The Man Beneath your Hood.

Whom you trust to repair your car is an important decision.  Your vehicle is one of your top investments and priorities.  Raleigh, meet Jim Liacos if you have not already done so.  Jim is the chairman of the board and head mechanic at his own shop, Jim’s Auto Service.  He is a fixture in the Raleigh community and well he should be.

We like to refer to Jim as the ultimate shade tree mechanic because he learned auto repair from the ground up by working on vehicles for friends and neighbors.  He was drafted into the Army 50 years ago.  From there, he worked at NC College of Veterinary Medicine.  That’s a circuitous route indeed on the way to becoming one of this area’s top auto mechanics!

Jim runs Jim’s Auto Service located at 3711 Tarheel Drive.  Whatever the make…whatever the model, if it runs on four-wheels Jim will fix it or has a mechanic on duty who will do it right the first time…guaranteed.  Get to know Jim and his team by stopping in at the shop or calling ahead for an appointment at (919) 824-4566.

Tune it up So you can Turn it On.

It makes sense.  If your vehicle is properly tuned before you hit the road your car is likely to hold up better.  So, whether you are still planning a late summer trip, or you are preparing for the changing seasons this may be a perfect time for a tune up.  We are mostly all guilty of waiting too long between a vehicle’s maintenance intervals.

Here are some signs that your car needs a tune up –

1.  Your engine is riding rough when it idles.
2.  What happened to my MPG…especially with these gas prices!
3.  The appearance of the dreaded check engine light.
4.  Your vehicle does not accelerate the way it did.

Why would you wait until a major disaster strikes and your car needs much more than a tune up?  If you live in the Raleigh area you can trust Jim Liacos and his staff to tune up your ride and keep you on the road this summer and well beyond.  Just call ahead for an appointment at 3711 Tarheel Drive.  That’s (919) 824-4566.
