Preparing Your Vehicle for Fall & Winter -- National Car Care Month

Preparing Your Vehicle for Fall & Winter -- National Car Care Month

With fall and winter approaching, it’s time to consider what to do to prepare your car for snow and icy conditions that will come soon to Springfield. Are you prepared for a light snow? Ice on the roads? What will you do if the car stalls in a blizzard?  Here’s some suggestions for getting you and your car winter-ready again: Train yourself to check the MoDOT website before each trip The most important thing to update for cold weather is you, the driver! With as many devices and gadgets as most people own nowadays, it makes great sense to make a check of the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT)’s Traveler Information website before leaving on a trip. The MoDOT website gives real-time updates on road conditions you can prepare for while still in the safety of your own home. (The best disaster is the one you miss altogether, after all.)  Here’s a tip: add a winter keychain item as a reminder-- something like a winter scene, a polar bear, a S ... read more

Preventive Maintenance: What It Is and Why It Matters

Preventive Maintenance: What It Is and Why It Matters

You’ll hear it all the time:  Preventive maintenance. But what does that mean, exactly? When we were kids, our parents told us to take care of our toys. We can remember our parents encouraging us to be more “gentle” with our more expensive toys due to fear we would break them. You can relate, right? As adults, we all eventually learn that when you take care of your equipment, your equipment takes care of you. That is why you have to sharpen your knives and scissors every so often. That is why you have to upgrade your smartphone’s software. That is why you need to replace your vacuum cleaner bag when it gets full. That kind of stuff is how we generally take care of our belongings so they will continue to serve us for a long time. The same can be said of your vehicle. When you take good care of your fleet of family or work vehicles, they can better take care of you. Preventive maintenance gives you peace of mind, knowing that you are taking proactive measu ... read more

Knowing About Your Car’s Fluids

Can you name off all the fluids in your car?  Most people immediately think of oil, gas, and washer fluid. But there are eight different fluids in most gasoline-powered automobiles. In this month’s blog, we want to talk about these 8 fluids and what you should know about them. Gas Oil Washer Fluid Air Conditioning Coolant Radiator Fluid Transmission Fluid Brake Fluid Power Steering Fluid Gas is the fluid that serves as fuel. It is the most regularly consumed fluid in your car. You can buy diesel fuel plus usually three different grades of gasoline from lower to higher octane. Unless you’re driving an electric vehicle, it’s pretty obvious why your vehicle requires this fluid to operate. Oil is the fluid that keeps your engine running smoothly. Like the blood in your veins, the oil gets pumped throughout the engine to lubricate the many moving parts that create heat and friction. Over time, your oil needs to be changed because it gets used up and dirty ... read more

Five Safe Driving Tips

  If you are starting to get outside and drive more frequently after COVID-19 restrictions, that’s great news. We still encourage you to be safe, wash your hands, and keep social distancing until we truly have the pandemic under control. But one thing we’ve noticed during the COVID-19 is how fast people are driving lately. Why is everyone in such a hurry? We realize that traffic is light and the roads may beckon you to hit the gas pedal a little harder, but our streets were never meant to be the setting for the Fast And The Furious street races! All kidding aside, here are five safe driving tips in case you feel your driving chops have become a bit rusty. Obey street signs. We know this sounds simple, and it really is. Follow the speed limit. Make a complete stop at a stop sign. Park only in places where you are allowed to. When you obey the street signs, your journey will be a lot less stressful with fewer tickets. Look both ways before c ... read more

There is a Plan 1, which includes 100% of all repairs for the first 50,000 miles on your car, and a Plan 2, which covers 50% of auto repairs.

What You Should Know About Fall/Winter Maintenance and Battery Reliability

What You Should Know About Fall/Winter Maintenance and Battery Reliability

With the changing of the seasons comes changes to how you should be maintaining your vehicle. Summer can create some issues for your battery and unfortunately, that toll crops up during the colder months, making our batteries less reliable or prone to failure. When it’s time for you to prepare for the winter months, there’s a lot you can do on your own, but don’t forget that Complete Automotive is here to assist you with all of your auto repair and maintenance needs.  Car batteries are lead-acid batteries, and the way they work depends on chemical reactions. These chemical reactions are affected by environmental temperatures. Hot or cold, it is going to change how efficient your battery is and how long your battery is going to last.  Cold temperatures are going to slow down the chemical reactions, meaning your battery is going to bog down when it gets cold out. This can happen despite how fully charged your battery is. Though, a new battery before an extreme ... read more
