Whoosh, Whoosh, Whoosh.

Wiper blades should be replaced every six months to a year or as soon as you notice a difference in driving visibility. When wiper blades no longer make proper contact with the windshield surface, they can begin to squeak, chatter, skip, smear or streak reducing driving visibility.  Danger Will Robinson, danger!

As the seasons change in the Raleigh area the snow, ice, rain and sun can cause the rubber compound on the blade to split and crack over time, creating reduced visibility when you use your wipers in inclement weather.  Responsible auto mechanics say periodically changing out your old blades for new ones to allow the windshield wiper to effectively remove debris.

It is just one of a myriad of car maintenance chores that you count on Jim Liacos to handle swiftly, accurately, and economically.  He and his crew at Jim’s Auto Service are some of the best auto maintenance professionals in the Raleigh area.  Call ahead for an appointment at Jim’s location 3711 Tarheel Drive.  That phone number is (919) 824-4566.

It’s Automatic…It’s Oil Change Time.

Here is a great way to stay on track.  As the season changes…change the oil in your vehicle.  Surveys and opinions vary on how often you need to change the oil in your car, but one belief persists.  That is, changing the oil in your ride is the surest, cheapest, and easiest way to keep your car running smoothly for years to come.

Here is a fact of our engines…not changing your oil often enough will cause it to run less efficiently, and as time goes on, it can cause the engine components to warp and wear out. The lack of lubrication between these parts will also contribute to these problems. Eventually, if the oil is not changed, the entire engine will shut down and have to be replaced.

Let’s see, $2500-$3000 to replace the engine…or have your oil changed quickly and inexpensively every three months.  It seems like easy math.  With autumn headed our way, please make an appointment at Jim’s Auto Service.  They are the Raleigh area’s auto repair professionals located at 3711 Tarheel Drive.  You can call ahead at (919) 824-4566.
