At American Auto Clinic in Albuquerque, NM, one of our primary objectives is to keep you informed on how to best care for your vehicle. With temperatures dropping this time of year, a question often comes to mind; is it ok to idle my car for extended periods of time?
When temperatures start to fall, so does your tire pressure. According to Goodyear, every ten degrees the outside temperature drops will cause 1-2 pounds of pressure loss in your tire. American Auto Clinic in Albuquerque, NM is here to tell you why that happens, why you should care, and what you should do about it.
The first time I used them I shopped around and they offered me a competitive price, and they were close by, so I went to them. They got the work done quickly and charged what they told me they were going to. I haven't had another problem with my alternator since. The second time I went in expecting to have to spend quite a bit of money to diagnose a horrible noise coming from my car. They ended up diagnosing and fixing the problem under an hour, changing my oil (per my request), and getting my car back to me for less than I was expecting to pay even just for the issue and oil change. - Charles C.
