Your battery probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind when considering car mainteance. Over time battery acid finds its way through the seals on the battery terminals and causes what we call a "blue flower". These "flowers" are highly corrosive and can eat through your battery cables which leads to a high cost repair. If bad enough these "flowers" can even cause your battery to discharge while sitting. This can dramtically lower the life expectancy of your expensive battery. We rcommend cleaning and treating/sealing your battery terminals every 15,000 miles to prevent these battery acid leaks and keep your battery working within specification for as long as possible. The expert team we have at Gateway Auto Clinic can diagnose and repair these types of battery problems. Come by or call us today and let us help you.
If you live in Ohio and have bad allergies, then you're noticing the high pollen counts as our weather warms up. Most modern vehicles are equipped with a cabin air filter that filters the air coming inside the car. This filter protects you from allergens and pollutants in the air. Over time the cabin air filter collects so much dirt and debris that it also starts holding moisture. This moisture building up in the heater control box can damage important HVAC components which can be very expensive to repair. We recommend changing your Cabin Air Filter every 15,000 miles to keep you and your car breathing right! Our expert technicians here at Gateway Auto Clinic are well equipped to handle such a task, so come see us today!
