Five Engine Noises You Need to Pay Attention To

Five Engine Noises You Need to Pay Attention To

Is your vehicle's engine making funny noises? If the answer is yes, your car may be trying to tell you something very important. In this month's blog, we will explore five engine noises you need to pay attention to and not ignore: Knock, knock! (Who's there?) Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeels (With delight? Sorry, but no.) Hiiisssssss (No, that's not your cat.) Grinding gears (A sound that makes you cringe!) Pop, pop, pop (And no, not the popcorn variety.) We don't mean to make light of serious engine noises, but we figured that if we presented them phonetically, you and your passengers might have an easier time remembering what to listen out for. After all, Knock-Knock jokes are fun until your engine starts making them. Then, it's not so funny. The knocks, squeals, hissing, grinding, and popping are signs that your car is having serious issues that will only get worse if ignored. That is why we strongly encourage preventive maintenance on your vehicle, so you rarely ha ... read more

Ten Things to Watch Out for During a Used Car Test Drive

Ten Things to Watch Out for During a Used Car Test Drive

Hilbert Hill on Unsplash Are you planning to buy a “new” used car? That’s fantastic! A well-maintained vehicle that has low mileage and is less than 10 years old can be a solid, affordable, and reliable investment. With that said, it’s important to make sure the used vehicle you are hoping to buy passes a pre-purchase inspection test. If more potential car owners brought the used vehicle they are looking at to their auto repair team for a pre-purchase inspection, it would drastically reduce heartache and hemorrhaging wallets. Instead, pre-purchase inspections would allow prospective buyers to walk away from a lemon, or gain negotiating power if they still want to purchase a troubled vehicle. But if you do not have the ... read more

Spring Cleaning: The Fluid Checks Your Car Needs Now

Spring Cleaning: The Fluid Checks Your Car Needs Now

As we March into Spring, many of us start feeling the itch to do some Spring Cleaning. The warmer weather and the desire to explore the outdoors motivate us to take a weekend road trip. Whatever your plans are for Spring Break, be sure to include your car's maintenance as part of your Spring Cleaning checklist of to-dos. One of the things that get neglected in a car is the fluids. During the winter months, we often forget that cold weather affects the fluids within our vehicles. Colder weather can increase the viscosity or thickness of fluids within your car. The fluids may get low because we drove through steep hills or rougher weather to go skiing in the mountains, for example. So, we invite you to bring your vehicle to Kniesel's Auto Service Centers in Citrus Heights, Roseville, or Sacramento for a complete safety inspection. When you bring your family and work vehicles to Kniesel's Auto Service Centers, we will be happy to check all of the fluids your car needs to ope ... read more
