    Vehicle Tips

    According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.

    The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)

    Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.

    Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.

    Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.

    A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.

    Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.

    Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.

    Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.

    Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.

    Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.

    Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.

    Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.

    Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.

    Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.

    Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.

    Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.

    Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.

    Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.

    Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.

    What Our Customers Are Saying


    -Marshall L.

    Great service at a great price.


    -Michael N.

    Very friendly and won't sell you anything you don't need.


    -Paula C.

    I was recommended to Williams by 3 independent people who did not know one another and each sang the praises of the professionalism of this auto repair company. Integrity seems difficult to find in the auto repair world, they've got it!


    -Joan O.

    Reasonable rates. Fast, friendly service.


    -Mela V.

    Life savers! Williams takes amazing care of me. Top notch service with honest and reliable people. So happy I found them, highly recommend!


    -Erica B.

    Scott Williams is the only honest mechanic I've ever met. I've been going to him for years and he will actually send me away telling me I don't need anything yet. Recently, I went to another place to get my brakes fixed and they told me that I should replace all of my brakes for $600. I then went to Scott and he said they didn't need to replaced - simply lathed down. It cost me much less. Honestly - best mechanic ever! You won't regret going to him and he will look at your car for free just to tell you if something is wrong. Not many mechanics do that nowadays.


    -Rita P.

    Great place for car repairs. Staff is knowlegeable, courteous, trustworthy, and very respectful. Great people to do business with.


    -Anthony Z.

    Stopped by for an oil change. They were very quick, friendly and professional about the entire thing. Prices are very reasonable ($20 for an oil change and quick checkup, if you bring your own oil and filter) and they do a great thorough job, giving me a heads up about an impending problem that I didnt even knew I had with the front axle. I just recently moved into the area, and I know my car is going to need a decent amount of babying due to its age. It looks like Williams Auto is a solid choice to make my regular car mechanic shop.


    -Josh B.

    Got my fan assembly done last year no issues.. ac works amazing now


    -Amber P.

    These folks are amazing. I was searching for an automotive service center closer to my house and when they popped on Google with 5 stars, I was nervous but hopeful. I've been ripped off before, so I was cautious calling in for an oil change. I dropped my car off at 8:30am and was so surprised when I got a call at 10:15am that it was ready to pick up. I was expecting to wait much longer, but they were quick and courteous and the price was so reasonable! They even put the hubcap of one of my rear tires back on for me! This is definitely my new go-to place and I really appreciate everything they've done!


    -Foster L.

    Excellent. Scott is very kind, fair, knowledgeable, speedy, and honest. He checked and diagnosed a couple minor problems without charging at all. Only charged what was necessary and no more. The dealership wanted to charge me $300 just for a diagnosis or the issues. I feel confident coming here for any car repair needs in the future.
