Or, you felt like you needed a shower after standing in the place? Not with us. We have a warm, inviting lobby and waiting area and our car repair shop is always shiny clean. We’re strong believers in keeping our work area clean and organized for maximum efficiency.
How often should I rotate my tires?
Your tires should be rotated every 6,000 miles or every other oil change to prevent premature wear. With the cost of new tires these days, squeezing out every mile you can helps you stay on budget. When you have your cars oil service completed at Team Ryan Automotive, our mechanics will automatically rotate your tires with no extra charge since we always remove all 4 wheels to complete a full brake inspection.
What does it mean when my service engine soon or check engine light comes on?
Although your car may seem to run fine, your cars computer or PCM is trying to tell you something when that little light comes on. There are many sensors and computerized components that need to be working properly in order for your computer to manage your vehicle’s engine performance and emissions. When one of these components fails or wears to the point where the PCM can no longer make the needed adjustments, the check engine light or service engine soon lamp is illuminated to alert the driver about the need for service. You should drop by as soon as possible to have us check it out for you. If your light is flashing, it means that serious damage could occur to other systems if you continue driving. In that case, we recommend you stop driving, and come in right away before any further damage and expense happens.
When should I get my oil changed?
In the Atlanta and North Georgia area, experience has shown us that you should continue to get your oil changed every 3 months or 3,000 miles when using conventional or semi synthetic motor oil. Full synthetic engine oil can last longer, extending those intervals to 5,000 miles. Following the recommendations of your owner’s manual or oil change lamp on the dashboard that may indicate you can go longer is what is causing serious engine damage due to sludge build up. Those extended intervals are fine for more temperate regions with different driving conditions like out west or down south. But here in the greater metro Atlanta area with our temperature swings, short trips and stop & go traffic we’re finding our clients can get many more trouble free miles from their engines by following simple 3,000 mile oil change intervals.
How long should my battery last?
The average age of battery failure in the Buford area of North Georgia and metro Atlanta is 3.5 - 4 years. So to make sure you don’t get surprised by a sudden no start condition, we check your battery every time you come in for any auto repairs or maintenance at Team Ryan Automotive Service & Repair. Even if your battery is testing OK, we’ll still recommend replacing it around 4 years just to make sure your vehicle starts and always get where you’re going; nobody likes the emergency caused by a dead battery!
What should I do if my car starts to overheat?
Stop driving right away! Pull over and call for a tow truck – this is a very serious auto repair problem. If your car overheats for too long, you can cause major damage to your engine. Also, do not attempt to check the fluid level in the radiator by opening the cap; the hot fluid can cause severe burns to your body. Play it safe, call us or your towing service and bring your car in for a thorough inspection to find out what caused the overheat and if any further damage has occurred.
When should I change my spark plugs?
For maximum fuel economy and peak engine performance, your spark plugs should be replaced every 60,000 miles, even if your vehicle is equipped with 100,000-mile platinum or iridium tipped spark plugs. The reason we recommend 60K miles is even though they may last longer, worn plugs cause other parts of your ignition system to fail prematurely and cost you more money than it should have with auto repair. In addition, we’ve found that many spark plugs don’t want to come out if left in too long. Since they’re made out of steel and most engines are now made from aluminum, the threads corrode and can cause damage as they are removed.
