Beating Summer's Heat

Photo by Paul Szewczyk on Unsplash Welcome to Complete Automotive’s May blog! We’re looking into how to beat the heat in Springfield this summer. The summer heat can brutally damage your car and can make you miserable as a driver. Left unchecked, the sunshine that makes for beautiful outside weather also scorches the air in your vehicle and absorbs it into the dashboard and interior. Like a hot plate, the heat refuses to go away just because you need to get in your car and get moving.   With a little bit of foresight, shopping, and care, you can make your car a much cooler place in the summertime. There are three things you should address before July:   Plan out your trips. When you need to go shopping, try t ... read more

Practicing Gratitude: Including Our Cars

Practicing Gratitude: Including Our Cars

With Thanksgiving on the way, it’s a good time to talk about the importance of gratitude, and including our cars in that. Thanksgiving grew out of the moment 400 years ago when the pilgrims on the Mayflower saw the Cape Cod shore after 65 days of rough sea and damage to their ship. One of the pilgrims led the others in the reading of Psalm 100, and that’s why we have Thanksgiving: the grateful travelers were finally on solid ground again. Practicing gratitude is important in all our relationships. To have respect and show appreciation is an important lesson to teach our kids, of course, but it’s just as important that husbands, wives, and partners remember their grace and not take each other for granted. The things we do for each other to improve our lives and to grow our fortunes should not be overlooked. As we take a day to thank each other, don’t forget that there’s a family member stuck in your garage who could use some attention for the dependabilit ... read more

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

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

But one thing we’ve noticed during the COVID-19 is how fast people are driving lately. Why is everyone in such a hurry?
