Alternator Middleton WI

You've probably noticed a bunch of warning lights on your dash when you start your engine. They flash on to test the circuits and then go off if everything's OK. One of the warning lights looks like a car battery. Its job is to tell you if your battery's not charging properly. You know that your battery stores electricity – enough to start your engine and get you moving. But that's about it – you can only get a few miles in Middleton on battery power alone. You need an alternator to generate enough electricity to run your engine and power your electrical accessories like the stereo, power seats, heater fan, on-board computers and so on. On top of that, the alternator needs to recharge your battery. So when your alternator isn't working properly, there isn't enough electricity for all of those things. When your alternator fails, you aren't going very far. So why would yo ... read more

Making your vehicle last with regular service!

A lot of people in Wisconsin have older vehicles. They're good commuters, grocery-getters or toy-haulers. They enjoy that fact that they're paid off, or soon will be. They would gladly like to keep their vehicles for 200,000 miles/320,000 kilometers or more – as long as it's economical to do so. There are plenty of people in Middleton whose vehicles are running after 150,000 or 200,000 miles (240,000 or 320,000 kilometers). We can learn from what they're doing to keep our own cars on the road. A common denominator is that they never skip an oil change. That may sound a bit unsophisticated, but it's really not. First off, oil is the life blood of your engine and it needs to be clean to properly lubricate. Skipping oil changes leads to clogged oil filters and sludge that can damage your engine. Enough said. There's another reason the scheduled oil change is so important. It's simpl ... read more

Oil Change Middleton, WI

Oil Change Middleton, WI

In Middleton, we know we need to take care of our cars, but it just seems really hard to remember to do it! Between dropping the kids off at school, cleaning the spilt cereal up from your car, taking the dog to the vet, remembering that dentist appointment that starts at the same time as your weekly meeting, and then dropping your phone in a puddle- all shoved into a Monday morning before 11 who can remember!? We generally accept that many things in life require regular maintenance- dentist, chiropractor, hair cuts-- but just may have not applied it to our vehicles.  Our vehicles are the form of transportation  alot of us end up treating to last. So people in Wisconsin really are maintenance minded. They just have to learn to apply that mindset to their vehicles. I mean, if you never brush your teeth or go to the dentist, you'll become painfully aware of your neglect when you get a big cavity. Once the damage is done, we learn our lesson and sta ... read more

What Should I Know How To Do On My Vehicle?

What Should I Know How To Do On My Vehicle?

What Should I Know How To Do On My Vehicle? I started out feeling I knew a good amount about my car, you know the important stuff in the car like Sirius Radio, DVD Player and Seat Warmer…Atleast that is what I thought was the most important information to know, until I broke down. I was the first car in the turning lane towards the grocery store, the light turns green and I went to accelerate and turn, my car wouldn’t go. I did what I knew and I turned off the radio. Great now what, with my mind racing what was I suppose to do next? It was 10 a.m. in the middle of January, in Wisconsin and I had a crying 6 month old in the backseat, I was blanking on what I needed to do. I pushed my hazards light and tried to signal people around me. In that moment I was reaching for my phone to call a tow truck trying to keep tears out of my eyes, a man walking to his car from the grocery store ran over and said “Let’s move it!” I jumped out, thankful for this man to see ... read more
