According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
Rick Eddy has been servicing our family cars for decades. He and his crew are trustworthy, honest, accurate, and skilled mechanics who get the job done right every time. They also make sure to explain everything thoroughly until all your questions are answered. I highly recommend Eddy's Auto. In fact I don't take my car anywhere else. Oh, and their prices are reasonable too.
I came in from out of town to purchase a vehicle and had Rick and his team inspect it for any not-so-obvious issues. He was very thorough, and provided estimates for the repair of the items he discovered. He worked during his lunch hour and he even charged me less than he had originally estimated. I can definitely recommend Eddy's!
The guys at Eddy's are very skilled and honest, everything upfront with no hidden costs or surprises! We take ALL our vehicles to Eddy's and have for years now, have never been disappointed. If you need automotive work please choose Eddy's automotive, you will not be disappointed!
I have an 04' F250 and couldn't find any dealerships or local mechanics who could change the starter within a day. I called Eddy's and talked to Rick. He was professional and told me to bring the truck in as soon as I could. I brought it in around 1130 and had the truck back by 5pm. Highly recommend them.
My AC would quit at stop lights and with the coming summer in Yuma we needed to get it fixed (the wife had threatened to trade). I arrived at 0730 and was greeted by a mechanic opening up. He took me into one of the bays and checked it out. All looked good, but because it only happened when it was HOT he recommended that I do my running around to allow the car and outside temperature to warm up. I liked this idea instead of charging $100 for a diagnostic at the dealer. A couple hours later the AC quit in a shopping center. I drove back to Eddy's and the mechanic took me right in and 20 minutes later he had me repaired and back on the road. The bill was less than half what the dealer wanted just for the diagnostic. I really appreciate a mechanic that uses common sense instead of just a machine. Thank You.
Highly recommend this place. Was having a hard time finding a place to get my car in and fixed on a last minute emergency. They took it in and had it fixed same day. First time going here and pretty sure it won't be my last. Great customer service!!!
This being my 1st visit to Yuma I had no idea who to go to for resurrection of the A/C on my 86 Bronco ll. After reading these reviews & visiting with Rick I elected to have them try. I am now styling in the cool comfort of my ride. They are a professional shop that will tell you what the options are before they start. I would recommend them for any automotive problems. Many thanks Rick.
These guys took us in at 4PM at the end of a long and HOT Monday. They solved our problem with speed, competency and kindness. Rick is a sweet man, he knows auto and is super helpful. SAVED us in a bind. GO HERE OVER OTHERS! Customer service > price any day. I would have paid him twice what he charged simply because he took time to listen, understood my problem, and helped me solve it. The BEST!
Fantastic customer service & excellent repairs!!! We take all of our vehicles, here for repair! I spent almost the whole Yuma summer with intermittent air conditioning, another repair service said they couldn't duplicate the discrepancy & then they wanted a fortune to replace a valve that "might" fix it. Rick spent the day, duplicated the problem, and repaired it for half the price! Wouldn't go any where else!!!
I have been using Eddy's for over a year now. Excellent service. The reason I have continued to go is the attention to details, I had my vehicle worked on somewhere else and they didn't wipe off a few oil smudges on the front of my vehicle, Eddy's not only caught that but cleaned up the fluid residue that the other garage had left. One good mechanic makes a world of difference.
