Quality Replacement Parts

Let me tell you about an experience, at a well-established Italian restaurant, that had changed hands a few months ago. The previous owners were an Italian couple that used old family recipes and fresh ingredients to make their pasta and sauces from scratch. They enjoyed stellar reviews for decades. The new owners took a different approach. The cooks followed the same recipes, but were told to use bagged salads, canned sauces and vegetables, frozen meat, and boxed pasta. As you can imagine, there was a difference between the old and new way of preparing the food and their online reviews reflected that change. Same chefs same recipes. Poor ingredients. From that story, you can understand how quality affects results. The same applies to the quality of replacement parts that an auto repair shop places in your vehicle. The parts need to deliver the performance you expect right out of the box and over the long haul. At Weber Automotive, our North Olmsted auto repair shop features quality

Leaking Fluids Because automotive fluids provide essential braking, cooling and lubrication, it is important to identify and correct the problem as quickly as possible. The loss of fluids, even in the slightest, can have an adverse effect on vehicle performance or worse. When there is no fluid to lubricate the engine, for example, a repair that would have been inexpensive initially could cost far more if ignored and engine failure occurred. Because of this, it is important for all vehicle owners to understand how to identify what type of fluid may be leaking from their car or truck. While many leaks are easy to identify, others can be more of a challenge. Knowing where and what to look for is the first step in identifying what may be leaking. On the following pages you will find some helpful tips about the types of fluids used in modern day vehicles, what they look like when they drip onto the driveway and where these fluids may be coming from. Since finding the location of a leak can

How to Figure Out the Proper Grade of Gas

There are a lot of misunderstandings in regards to fuel grades and by fuel grades our auto mechanic experts mean the octane rating. With names like Standard, Super, Plus, and Premium its easy to see why you might associate the octane rating/grade with quality. Octane ratings are shown as a number that usually ranges from 87 to 91 at the pump. The number does not mean better but rather signifies the appropriate amount of a certain grade of fuel for a certain engine. How It Works Octane is a measure of gasolines ability to resist igniting before the spark plug goes off. Gasoline and air compress in the engines combustion chamber. When that pressure reaches a certain point, the gas will spontaneously combust. You dont want that happening; rather, you want the spark plug to ignite the fuel at the exact right time. When the gas combusts too soon, the piston will try to lower while it is still being pushed up by the crank shaft and that is when you hear a pinging or knocking sound. That sound

Understanding Winter Tire Use Here in Northeast Ohio, winter weather is a given, often stretching from late October into April. Thats about half a year where winter storms are possible! Many new cars come with all-season tires that can handle winter weather conditions like freezing rain and snow. However, its important to be aware that there is not truly a one-size-fits-all seasonal tire. All-season tires end up being a compromise between ideal summer performance tires and high-performing winter tires. Basically, they just cant handle extreme weather like dedicated seasonal tires do. All-Season Tires vs. Winter Tires Winter tires offer significantly more traction, ranging from about 25 50% more than all-season tires. Another important factor to consider is that studies have shown that all-season tires can take approximately 40% longer to stop during braking. That could mean the difference in you getting stuck in the snow or preventing a car accident. Additionally, summer tires and
