Question on my battery!?

Aeschbach Automotive Tech Question: I'm David in Middleton, Wisconsin. For the last year and a half I've had some battery problems. I had trouble starting my car so I bought a new battery at a parts store in Middleton. At first everything was fine, then about six months later I had problems starting my car again, so I got a new battery. Again, everything was fine for another five or six months then I had trouble starting my car again. I went to get another battery and the parts guy said why do you need another battery, weren't you in a few months ago? So he tested my battery and it was OK. Apparently I've been replacing good batteries. What's wrong with my vehicle? Aeschbach Automotive Answer: Look, we can't fault David for not knowing what's wrong with his vehicle – he just didn't have enough information. And frankly, n ... read more

Brakes

Question: What are the signs that I need a brake job? Aeschbach Automotive Answer:Signs of brake problems often fall into one of two categories for Middleton vehicles: making noise or a pulsation in the brake pedal. Let's start with the noise. Most brake pads have an audible brake wear indicator. This is a small piece of metal that rubs on your brake rotor when the brake pads are worn to the point they should be replaced. The noise is a chirp or soft squeal. This noise gives Middleton drivers enough warning to get their brakes serviced while there is still enough brake pad left to enable you to stop safely. Middleton drivers who ignore the chirp find that the sound changes to a grinding noise. That is more serious. It means that the friction material on your brake pad is worn away and metal parts of the brake are grinding against the rotor when y ... 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

Alignments

Alignments

Alignments in Madison, WI It's no surprise that your vehicle will drive better if all the wheels are pointed in the same direction. That's called wheel alignment. If your wheels are out of alignment you may notice that your vehicle pulls to one side or the other. Something that Middleton drivers won't notice right away, but will if they keep driving when they're out of alignment, is that their tires are wearing unevenly and fairly quickly. That's because when the vehicle is pulling to one side, you have to steer it back straight. The outside of the tire just wears out fast because you're constantly turning, which can be very exhausting on a long road trip in Wisconsin – fighting to keep the vehicle going straight down the road. Some of the things that commonly throw a wheel out of alignment are slamming into a pothole, smiacking a cu ... read more
