Taylor was concerned that the heater wasn't working in her car. This is not a good thing to happen in the middle of a cold Colorado winter.

4 Signs You Might Have an Automotive Emissions Issue

4 Signs You Might Have an Automotive Emissions Issue

Today's vehicles have very sophisticated emissions systems designed to burn off harmful exhaust gases and limit the toxins released into our environment. The emissions system also helps keep the vehicle running better with a healthier engine and better fuel efficiency. Colorado is a very green state, so we have rather strict emissions standards.  Modern vehicles will have an advanced emissions control system (also known as the EVAP system) that utilizes different oxygen sensors, computer controls and sensitive exhaust system equipment to let you know when there may be a problem. However, that equipment can also fail sometimes, so you really have to be mindful of potential automotive emissions problems when they develop. If you think you might have an emissions problem or an issue with your exhaust system, it is a good idea to get your vehicle inspected as soon as possible. Here are 4 common s ... read more

5 Benefits of Regular Oil Changes

5 Benefits of Regular Oil Changes

An oil change is the most common maintenance service needed in a car. During this procedure, the old engine oil is drained from the pan. The oil filter is removed and replaced. Then, fresh oil is put into the pan. Motor oil provides important lubricating properties throughout the engine's fast-moving components. Without healthy oil, significant issues can develop. Here are 5 key benefits of getting regular oil changes, according to the Colorado Springs auto repair experts at LightHouse Automotive: 1.

8 Signs of a Dying Car Battery

8 Signs of a Dying Car Battery

A dead car battery is a common problem in the winter season. Sometimes, it's due directly to the freezing temperatures, but that's not always the issue at hand. There could be many different reasons why your battery is weak and/or dying. Here are some of the warning signs you can look for, according to the Colorado Springs auto repair specialists at LightHouse Automotive: 1. Car Won't Start This is a pretty obvious sign that the battery is dead. If you turn the key or hit the start button and it makes no noise (or maybe just a few light clicks), then it's probably the battery that needs to be recharged or replaced. It could be a failing starter, alternator or spark plug, as well, so make sure to look at more than just the battery. ... read more

Maintain Your Suspension for a Cold Colorado Winter

Maintain Your Suspension for a Cold Colorado Winter

It's no secret that winter weather wreaks havoc on the roads in and around Colorado Springs during the winter season. We have rain, snow, ice and sleet that can cover the streets and create slick driving surfaces. Freezing temperatures and excess moisture can also lead to a lot of cracks and potholes. Water, grease, mud and road salt can also kick up underneath your vehicle while you drive and cause significant issues. Suspension System Maintenance All of these factors make Colorado winters pretty rough on your vehicle's suspension system. When it comes to safety and handling during difficult driving conditions, maintaining your suspension is extra important. You want your shocks/struts to be healthy to absorb all the bumps, cracks and potholes. You want your wheels in perfect alignment to avoid drifting and slipping on tig ... read more
