When it comes to their vehicles, some HURSTresidents don't have amaintenance mindset. They know they need to take care of their cars, but it just seems really hard to get them to remember to do it.

Good Timing: Proper Timing Belt Replacement Saves Money for HURST Drivers

Good Timing: Proper Timing Belt Replacement Saves Money for HURST Drivers

  Knowing how their engine works can help HURST drivers make informed decisions about auto care and prevent repairs to their vehicles. This is especially true when it comes to timing belts. An engine's power is generated in the cylinders. Inside the cylinder is a piston that moves up and down while the engine is running. Power is generated in a cycle that includes four strokes of the piston. First, the piston drops and a valve at the top of the cylinder opens to let in fuel and air. The piston then rises, which compresses the fuel and air. At this point, the spark plug fires, igniting the fuel and pushing the piston down. This downstroke transfers energy to the engine, which provides the power it needs to run. The piston rises again, and a valve opens to release the exhaust. All of this movement is orchestrated by a timing belt. The timing belt ... read more

Tire Maintenance in Hurst

With the recent focus in the HURST area on improving fuel economy, we've been told how important it is to maintain our tire pressure. HURST drivers know that tires wear out, but we want to make them last as long as possible because they're not cheap to replace. In addition to saving gas, properly inflated tires last longer. Underinflated tires will wear out more quickly. Some people in HURST wonder if they should add a few extra pounds of pressure when they fill up their tires. Bad idea. In fact, there are very good reasons not to overinflate your tires. For one, the middle of the tread will wear unevenly because the full tread is not contacting the road properly. That also adversely affects your handling. Stop by Honest - 1 Auto Care - Hurst, TX to see about tire maintenance for your vehicle.

HURST Alighment Service

Your car might have an alignment problem if: it drifts or pulls to one side, your steering wheel is off center, you have uneven tire wear or your car doesn't feel like it handles right. When all of a vehicle's wheels are lined up exactly with each other, your wheels are in alignment. Running into potholes around HURST and smacking a curb or other object are great ways to knock your car out of alignment. Then, one or more of your wheels starts pulling in a slightly different direction and the problems begin. There are several things involved in an alignment check at Honest - 1 Auto Care - Hurst, TX. First, there's an inspection of the steering and suspension systems - their components should be checked to see if anything's bent or broken. Then the tire condition needs to be inspected. From there, the vehicle is put on an alignment rack and an initial alignment reading is taken. If all four wheels are adjustable, they are lined up perfectly parallel with the ve ... read more
