Safety Tips for Driving in Heavy Rain

Summer is nearing its end, and the season will be changing soon. With fall and winter usually comes more rainfall and wetter weather conditions, which can make driving more tricky. When it comes to driving in the rain, the roads can be slippery and more dangerous. It can also be a lot more difficult to see the road clearly.  Here are some safety tips to remember when driving in heavy rain this upcoming season:  The more important safety measure that you can take when it comes to driving in the rain is making sure that your car is well maintained and up to date on all recommended services. This will help you avoid unwanted car breakdowns and also ensure that your vehicle is ready for the weather changes.  Change your windshield wipers before the rain begins. The heat of the summer can cause the wipers to crack and fray, which can make seeing in the rain difficult. Windshield wipers should be replaced at least once a year.  Inspect your tires for tread.

Why a Professional Oil Change is So Important

We've all see commercials or ads that show the average car owner changing their own oil - you may think, can I do that too? While you may think that it would be cheaper and less of a hassle, the truth is that there is much more that goes into an oil change at an auto repair shop. Topping off your vehicle's oil just adds more motor oil, but overtime the oil chamber will become dirty and clogged if it isn't professionally clean, and this can greatly hurt your vehicle's engine.  When you receive an oil change at Lorentz Automotive, much more is done than just topping off motor oil. An oil change will consist of removing the old oil and then flushing out the entire system. This will clean out the oil chamber and remove any grime and dirt buildup that can cause problems if left unattended. After the system is cleaned, fresh motor oil is put back in. We will also change the filter, which will allow the oil to flow smoothly through the system. The filter is what ca ... read more

Symptoms That Indicate You're Due for a Wheel Alignment

Proper wheel alignment is important for many reasons - it makes sure that you have proper control of your vehicle, keeps the wheels and brakes working properly, and avoids excessive tire wear. A wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of your vehicle’s tires to manufacturer specifications.  Vehicle manufacturers have various recommendations for how often your car needs a wheel alignment. However, once a year to every two years, depending on the amount of driving you do, is usually recommended. A wheel alignment sets the caster, camber and toe for the front wheels on your car. Although the service is usually done on a recommended basis, sometimes an alignment is needed sooner if your car’s tires are forced out of alignment, which can happen from hitting potholes, speed bumps, debris, and more.  Signs your vehicle needs a wheel alignment include: Car veers to one side Uneven tire wear Vibrating while driving Steering wheel isn’t straight Diffic ... read more

Get Your Car Ready For The Summer

Driving our vehicles in the warmer weather can take a toll on their health, especially when going on long drives and road trips. In order to keep your vehicle reliable this summer, be sure to have your vehicle inspected and prepared for the heat.  Make sure your A/C is working properly. If it has been a while since your A/C has been checked, be sure to have it looked at by one of our expert mechanics. Getting stuck driving in the summer without a working air conditioning system can be unbearable.  Have the cooling system inspected by a trusted mechanic. The cooling system is what prevents your engine from overheating, and this system needs to be in top working condition with fluids in good shape to avoid unwanted breakdowns.  Be sure that your engine oil has been replaced on time and that you aren’t due for an oil change during your trip or long drive. If so, have it completed before you embark.  Double check that your windshield wipers are in working cond ... read more
