A Healthy Car is Not a Matter of Luck

A Healthy Car is Not a Matter of Luck

This week of St. Patrick's Day, you'll hear a lot about the luck o' the Irish. Whether you are Irish or not, however, you will need more than luck to keep your car running great. It will need preventative maintenance. It will probably require repairs at some point. The longer you drive it, the more care it will need. Sure, some people do get very lucky by finding a car that runs really well for hundreds of thousands of miles with minimal maintenance. It happens about as often as you see a leprechaun or find his pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. For most of us, we have to be diligent about taking care of our vehicles so they can get us where we need to go every day.  Check out the Fox Run Auto Specials page for some coupons that will help you take advantage of our preventative maintenance deals.

Local Customer Turns to Fox Run Auto to Keep Her Car Running Well

Janet drives a car that is 17 years old, so she's used to having to deal with maintenance and repairs every once and awhile in order to keep it running well.

It was very clear when Janet's car arrived at our shop that her car battery had died. T ... read more

Is Your Fuel Pump Failing? Look for These 8 Signs.

The fuel pump is an essential component of any vehicle that burns gasoline or diesel fuel for power. It controls the flow of fuel from the gas tank to the engine, allowing the car to accelerate as desired.

At the first sign of fuel system issues, you will want to bring your vehicle into a professional mechanic for proper diagnosis and repairs. 1.

Car Care Tips

A Leap Year is Fun. A Bouncy Car is Not.

A Leap Year is Fun. A Bouncy Car is Not.

There is always something special about a Leap Year. We get one extra day in February and a very select few get to properly celebrate a birthday or anniversary every four years. We have the election and the Summer Olympics in 2020, as well. With Leap Day coming up this weekend, we couldn't help but make note of it! A Poor Suspension is Not as Much Fun Though a Leap Year is kind of fun and unique, a car that leaps and bounces all around is not. Unless you purposely installed hydraulics in your lowrider, you are probably someone who prefers a smooth ride in your vehicle. If you are driving around with a bad suspension, it's definitely not a whole lot of fun. It's also not very safe. The car won't handle right and it will seem like you feel every single little bump in the road. Suspension Repair at Fox Run Auto If you think you might ... read more

William recently brought his Volvo into Fox Run Auto for some automotive repairs. At first, he wasn't too sure about our shop. We're definitely not as fancy-looking from the outside as the local auto dealerships, but we believe in substance over style. We're proud to be a small, locally owned shop, and customers like William know what we're all about once they work with our friendly and knowledgeable team. "Have you ever heard not to judge a book by its cover?" William says. "For those that look past first appearances you will already know how amazing this shop is! Fox Run Auto might not be flashy, but the multitude of cars outside will attest that the knowledge and expertise to service those vehicles is why they are there." At Fox Run Auto, we know it's what's inside that ... read more
