Weber Automotive Takes Action to be an Environmentally Friendly Auto Shop

Weber Automotive Takes Action to be an Environmentally Friendly Auto Shop | North Olmsted, OhioWeber Automotive has partnered with Virteom to engage our customers and users about our services and the technology behind the scenes. In our video series, Jacqui and Bryan talk about the latest tech, products, and some of our coolest projects. This video is all about our environmental impact and how we combat negative effects each day. Watch or read the transcription below!

In the auto industry and in the world in general, there is a lot of waste happening and the environment is really important. We believe that we're borrowing the environment in the world we live in from our kids and grandkids. So, we like to minimize our impact on our environment.

Recycling On Site

Recycling Bin On Site | Weber Automotive

One of the things we’ve done in order to minimize our impact on the environment is brought in a recycling dumpster to always be on hand, since it’s not provided near our location. This is important because in each city, you probably have to pay to have an extra dumpster like that on site. It's not provided, we do pay for it but it's worth it to do our part to save the environment. 

Disposing Car Batteries

Car batteries get picked up by the provider that we buy from to be recycled. That's been going on for a long time, but we make sure happens regularly because there’s a lot of lead in there, electrolytes and acid. 

Recycling Rubber from Tires

Tires are usually recycled and they’ve been starting to use the rubber to replace playground mulch. So, kids who fall on the playground don't get hurt. There are actual tire recycling companies that work with you, pick it up, and they recycle.

Recycling Auto Oil and Engine Fluid

Bins to hold engine fluids and oil for recycling | Weber Automotive

We do oil changes and engine fluid changes, so we do accumulate a lot of oil, which typically gets hauled away. So, what we do is we store it all in-house and then we have a recycling furnace that converts that old fuel into heat for the shop to use in the colder months.

It’s extremely clean burning, so you don't see any smoke and you don't smell anything from outside. We store all the fluids in the containers you see above. It gets used throughout the wintertime as heat. This allows us to minimize the other fuels that we burn. 

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint with Proper Car Care 

Something everybody can do on their own is make sure that your tires are inflated and the alignment is done right. Make sure the car is running the way it’s supposed to. Make sure you don’t have any oil leaks. All these things and more add up to dirtying up the environment. 

It leads to burning more fuel than you have to, if the car doesn't run right, or if the tires are low - All these things have environmental impacts.

Contact Us today or Schedule your Service to ensure your car is running properly and you are keeping your environmental impact at a minimum.

The auto industry is rapidly growing, and theres a lot of technology involved. Every single year, vehicles get more and more advanced.

There are 10 to 12 computers, sometimes more, to communicate with each other all the time operating your vehicle. So, we not only have to understand how an engine, brakes work, exhaust systems, an all other parts of the vehicle work but you also have to know battery systems, multiple voltages, hybrid systems, etc. There are so many computers data systems throughout your car that you can even connect your phones to your car.

There are a few signs to look for when it comes to your vehicle and when it needs to be looked at by a specialist. The first sign is pretty obvious, the check engine light. But sometimes there are other ways of knowing something is wrong with your car. Sometimes you hear a creek or another weird noise coming from your vehicle that shouldnt be happening. Either way, if you suspect something is wrong with your vehicle or there is a clear sign, like the check engine light, we recommend taking it into our shop to be looked at by our experienced technicians. Diagnosing car troubles requires a lot of knowledge of how the system works and sometimes some tenacity and creativity to actually narrow down and pinpoint where the problem is. Electronic Issues We use Pico brand scopes as theyarethe best brand of electrical lab scopes in the industry. We use this scope to help us diagnose why the check engine light comes on. In many cases, an engine malfunction is far beyond what a check engine

What to Do When Your Check Engine Light Comes On

Many car owners believe that they can take their cars into any shop when their check engine light comes on and the shop will scan the vehicle and immediately identify the issue. However, the scan does not tell you what the problem is; it only tells you that there is an issue. What Happens When the Check Engine Light Comes On? When the check engine light comes on it means the computer that operates the power train sees something out of its programmed parameters, and that generally indicates theres a problem with the vehicle. At Weber Automotive, we offer a free code scan in order to provide our customers with more value. If your check engine light comes on, we will run our code scanner which gives us direction to tell you where the problem is. From there we can tell you what tests have to be done beyond that scan to determine exactly whats causing that light to come on. The code is not a diagnosis as it does not tell you what needs to be done to solve that problem. Car Doctors It
