Keep Your Cool This Summer

June 17th, 2014

Before the blazing sun of summer leaves you sweating and feverishly rolling down the windows, consult a mechanic to inspect your air conditioning system for leaks, cracks or other malfunctions. There is no greater summertime discomfort than peeling yourself out of a scorching vehicle. Beat the heat with air conditioning repair. Like most auto repair an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of good. Never allow a tiny problem turn into a disaster; as a minor air conditioning repair is often relatively quick and inexpensive, while a larger fix may not be.

As the air conditioning system in a vehicle ages, constant check-ups and addressing small problems will save both time and money in the future. If the air conditioning system in a vehicle is not offering the cooling power it once did, there are several preventative measures which can be tak ...[more]

Auto Repair for Traveling the Road Ahead

April 22nd, 2014

tires columbus ohioIn this economy, we do almost anything to save money. From extreme couponing to down grading many facets of our life, saving money is more important than ever. However, how much money will skipping necessary auto repair or maintenance save you in the long run?

April: National Car Care Month

April 21st, 2014
April is National Car Care Month and there is no better time to break free from the chains of winter to start your journey to a dependable, road ready vehicle. Routine maintenance can seem overwhelming and with a never ending cycle of checks and replacements, sometimes it is hard to remember where one project ends and the next one begins. Knowledge is power and whether you are a mechanic or soccer mom every vehicle owner should have at least passing knowledge about their vehicle.
 
Allowing your vehicle to fall into disrepair during the winter months is nearly inevitable. Spending time working on a vehicle during an icy day is less likely than waking a hibernating bear and nearly as pleasant. Thus, when April is sprung upon us there is no better reason to go outside and enjoy the b ...[more]

Auto Repair - A Lesson in Investing into the Life of Your Vehicle - Boyds Tire

October 12th, 2012

As a vehicle owner, you know that maintenance and repairs are worthwhile investments. Some vehicle repairs can be unexpected but easy enough to fix, a flat tire, a dead battery, or a blown fuse. However, some repairs require more time and more money to fix, a transmission problem, wear and tear to the vehicle over time, or a failed air-conditioner. Regular maintenance is key to prevent most repairs, but you never know what is ‘just down the road’ for your car or truck. Knowing how to make small repairs, and knowing when to take your car in for inspections, maintenance, and repairs is key to extending the life of your vehicle and getting the most out of your investment.

Outside of routine and seasonal maintenance, oil changes, tire checks, air-conditioning or winter-proofing, having a trusted mechanic to inspect for any potential problems before they happen ...[more]

Preventative Maintenance Service - Boyds Tire

April 20th, 2012

Preventative maintenance service is an investment that is a must, when it comes to keeping your vehicle(s) in good running condition.

Preventative maintenance is a service that is a step taken beyond your regular maintenance service. The difference between preventative maintenance services and regular maintenance services is that with preventative maintenance you are checking components of your vehicle that are typically not a part of your regul ...[more]
