A lesson in the need for routine maintenance

Eagle River Automotive is Giving Back and Paying it Forward by supporting John York and his family for the month of July.

Top Tier Detergent Gasoline!!! TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline is the premier standard for gasoline performance. Seven of the world's top automakers, BMW, General Motors, Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz and Audi recognize that the current EPA minimum detergent requirements do not go far enough to ensure optimal engine performance. Since the minimum additive performance standards were first established by EPA in 1995, most gasoline marketers have actually reduced the concentration level of detergent additive in their gasoline by up to 50%. As a result, the ability of a vehicle to maintain stringent Tier 2 emission standards have been hampered, leading to engine deposits which can have a big impact on in-use emissions and driver satisfaction. These automakers have raised the bar. TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline help drivers avoid lower quality gasoline which can leave deposits on critical engine parts, which reduces engine performance. That's something both drivers and automakers want to avoid.

Why TOP TIER? The intention of the TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline standards is to create a winning situation for gasoline retailers, auto manufacturers and drivers. Currently, many gasoline retailers provide fuels with lower-quality additive packages that can build up deposits on fuel injectors and on intake valves. Others can build up deposits in combustion chambers and may lead to intake valve sticking. These lower levels of additives can have negative impacts on engine performance and vehicle responsiveness.

In the automotive repair world we are asked many questions about general maintenance. For example when should my tires be rotated and why? We agree that it is always good to be in the know about your vehicle and what you can do to keep your vehicle safe and in good running condition.

For most of us, when we consider general vehicle maintenance, oil changes, tires, brakes, and tune ups typically come to mind. In regards to oil changes, there are many different types of oil that can be used. You can either opt for a Conventional Oil Change which is "Non-Synthetic", a "Semi-Synthetic", "Full Synthetic", or Diesel Oil Change. If you prefer a "Full-Synthetic" oil change, its cost is typically slightly higher but the oil offers more protection against wear and tear. When it comes to the type of oil you should use, refer to your Owner's Manual which is a great resource for questions you may have about your vehicle's specifications, including regularly scheduled maintenance intervals. Along with regularly scheduled oil changes there are also other general maintenance procedures that can help prevent costly vehicle repairs.

For instance, did you know that you should rotate your tires every other oil change? Regularly rotating tires will help prolong the life of your tires. Next time you have your oil changed, ask your shop technician to inspect the tires and check for uneven tire wear. Remember, if you really like hugging those curbs or hit a pothole, you should also have your alignment checked on a consistent basis. It is helpful to maintain your automotive repair records so you and your Automotive Shop can reference the work that has been completed.

Emergency Items For Your Vehicle

Emergencies in Eagle River may encounter can range from a flat tire downtown in Anchorage to being stranded in a snowy ravine for three days. So you may want to consider a basic car emergency kit to keep in your vehicle at all times and a travel kit tailored to a specific trip.Your close-to-home in Eagle River kit would have some basic items to work on your car: everything you need to change a tire, gloves, a couple quarts of oil, some antifreeze and water. A can of tire inflator is a great temporary fix for minor flats. You'll also want jumper cables or a booster box, flares, a flashlight and some basic hand tools.Now for your comfort and safety: a first aid kit, drinkable water, high calorie food (like energy bars), blankets, toilet paper, cell phone, towel, hat and boots. Keep some change for a pay phone, emergency cash and a credit card. If you live in an area in AK with frequent severe weather or earthquakes, may want to carry provisions for longer emergencies.For trips away from Eagle River, consider the weather and AK geography as you assemble your emergency auto supplies. You'll need to have a source of light and heat and will want to provide protection against the elements as well as adequate food and water for everyone in the car. Always tell someone where you are going and have a plan for checking in at waypoints. Then if you run into trouble, you can be reported missing as soon as possible and rescuers will be able to narrow the search area. The key to safe travel in AK is to keep your vehicle properly maintained, plan ahead, and let others know your itinerary.
