Happy Customer Gets Tires Replaced at Fox Run Auto

Happy Customer Gets Tires Replaced at Fox Run Auto

Shaniqua needed new tires for her car, so she went to Fox Run Auto. She had been to our shop for automotive work in the past, so she felt comfortable trusting our team with her tire replacement. "This was my second time doing business here and my experience was just as wonderful as the first experience!" Shaniqua says. "Customer service here is top notch." Shaniqua had to drop her car off at our shop and then get to work. We knew the repair technicians were extra busy that day and we may not get to her tire replacement until the following morning. Our Service Advisor let Shaniqua know the timeline and was able to set her up with a loaner car for the day.

8 Signs Your Car Needs an Oil Change

8 Signs Your Car Needs an Oil Change

An oil change is the most important maintenance service for your car. Motor oil is the lifeblood of your engine. It provides vital lubrication for fast-moving parts inside the motor. If the engine oil is old, it won't work as well. If the oil level is low, it will cause significant problems that could lead to major engine damage. This is why the oil and oil filter need to be replaced periodically to keep your vehicle healthy. Many of us depend on our mechanic and/or our car's computer system to tell us when each next oil change is due. You may have a little sticker on your windshield with the mileage for your next service, which is usually 5,000-6,000 miles from your previous oil change. For some older cars, that interval may be only 3,000 miles. For some modern vehicles, it may be as high as 10,000 miles between services. However, it's important to understand that mileage isn't everything. You may ne ... read more

Do I Need to Break In a New Car?

Do I Need to Break In a New Car?

We've all heard the term breaking in new shoes, so it may have you wondering, "Do I need to do the same for a brand new car?" For those of you who are starting off the year with a new car, you're probably very protective of your investment. Though your vehicle probably doesn't need any major maintenance items quite yet, there are three things you should know when "breaking in" your new car. Avoid Harsh Acceleration With a new whip, you're probably tempted to floor it every time you get behind the wheel. Unfortunately, that's not a healthy practice, no matter how new your car is. Aggressive acceleration, especially upon engine startup, can be extremely harmful as it doesn't give time for the engine to warm up. Instead, take it easy to reduce strain on your motor. Avoid Excessive Braking On the other hand, you should also be cautious about how you brake. New brake pads need at least a couple hundred miles of wear-in to sit against the rotor ... read more

5 Signs Your Car Needs a Fuel System Service

5 Signs Your Car Needs a Fuel System Service

It should come as no surprise that your fuel system is very important to the overall health and performance of your engine. From the gas tank to the fuel lines and filter, each component works together to supply clean fuel to the engine's combustion chamber. If the fuel is contaminated, dirty or not flowing properly, your vehicle won't run as well and it can eventually cause significant damage to the engine or exhaust system. So, how do you know when you might have a fuel system problem? Here are 5 common signs you can look out for: 1. Loss of Fuel Efficiency If you notice that your miles per gallon (MPG) have gone down, it could actually be any number of automotive problems including the engine, exhaust system, wheel alignment, tire air pressure and other systems. The fuel system might also be the cause. There could be a clog in one of the fuel lines or the fil ... read more
