Florida heat can be tough on cars and drivers. Your car’s engine is constantly generating heat which needs to be dissipated to prevent major problems. That’s what your radiator and cooling system is for. The driver on the other hand is at the mercy of ice cold air provided by your car’s automotive air conditioning system. If your car air conditioner isn't blowing as cool as it used to, or if it takes longer than usual to cool off your car, you may need to have your system serviced.Read More
A car's engine generates enough heat to destroy itself. It is after all an internal combustion engine. The cooling system is your only line of defense against this “self-destruction.” By dissipating heat with circulating water, your car’s radiator and the rest of your car’s cooling system keep the engine within the correct operating temperature range. That's why preventative maintenance of the automotive cooling system is essential in helping to ensure your engine's life.Read More

If your vehicle needs a jump start to get going but then runs fine, the battery is most likely to blame. If it takes a jump but then dies after removing the jumper cables, you most likely have a bad alternator. Other common symptoms of a failing alternator include random dimming of dash lights, headlights, or other oddities of the electrical system. A high pitched squeal or screeching noise under the hood could mean your alternator diodes or bearings are going out. A failing alternator can ruin a good battery and a failing battery can wipe out a good alternator.Read More
Severe weather causes a bigger drain on your car's battery, which means the alternator has to work harder, which in turn creates additional wear on the engine belts.Read More
