Vehicle Tips

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.

My A/C compressor went bad in my 2003 Crown Vic. I went to C&J auto in October 2018 to have it fixed. They suggested I wait for them to find a used compressor of the same model. It took a while, but I had the luxury of time. The total cost was about half of what I had expected based on the quotes online. I am writing this review now because the A/C system is STILL running. The quality of this service center and the work they do has set a pretty high standard for me.

reviewicon
Thank you thank you thank you! It is great to know honest people still exist. I took my car in for an inspection and told them I needed brakes. They could have easily replaced and charged or not replace and still charge but they didn't. They called and advise my brakes were fine and took time to explain what was going on and the steps taken to clear up the issue. I was still a little nervous so I called back to clarify and they were extremely patient and explained again what took place. Thank you guys for your patience and kindness! Top notch customer service!

I contacted C&J Auto and Truck Service regarding a seatbelt and Airbag lights that appeared after I had trouble with my stop lights. I made an appointment for Monday morning at 8:00. I arrived at 7:45 and the OPEN sign was on and I wient inside. I was greeted and information taken about the problem. They said they would call me when they had completed testing of the system. About 35 minutes later, my name was called so I though they would "give me the bad news" regarding time and money for repairs. NOT SO, I was told my Jeep was ready and it was only two bad fuses. The diagnotics charge was waived and I paid for the parts and labor required. I was very happy with the service, beginning to end. In just a short time I was on my way. I found C&J Auto and Truck Service has technicians, equipment and experience to provide professional services and reasonable prices. Take time to contact them and they may be able to help you right away or you may choose to make an appointment. which ever you choose. GIVE THEM A CALL and they will do their best to get your repairs done in a resonable time and certainly reasonable chargeS for service, parts and Labor. I'm sure you will find they provide timely services at fair rates for both car and truck repairs!

I broke down on the way to NY and needed some help. The staff there was so friendly and even called me back to see if I was okay after I originally called them. I ended up needing a new starter, which they did for us and were very quick with the repairs. Great customer service and work, thank you.

Needed tire service while on the road passing through Richmond. Lucky to find C&J. Not only was service prompt and professional, the staff was most helpful and friendly. Price very reasonable. Saved a day on my trip to Cape Cod. If you ever need service in the Richmond area, that's the place! Thanks Michael!

Great, honest mechanic shop!!!!!! I had to get my brakes replaced and I was in and out in a timely manner. The price was fair and my brakes are wonderful. I feel confident with the work that was preformed. They had blocks and coloring books for my boys to keep them occupied. The front desk lady even put cartoons on for my boys. Being a parent that means a lot. Children will be children and they don't want to sit around. I will be returning. Thank you C&J!!!
