A battery isn’t something you would expect to be affected by weather; as long as it’s charged, most batteries just work. Vehicle batteries, however, are actually noticeably impacted by cold weather. You may notice on especially cold mornings that your vehicle is a little slower to start then normal...that’s because your battery struggles a little more than usual in the cold.
Christmas is just a few days away! If you’re like us, for many of you that means travelling this holiday season. Here are some travel tips from Van Meter Auto Repair in Mantua, NJ to make sure your Christmas journey is merry.
As cars become more technologically advanced, the importance of your vehicle’s battery becomes continually more important. In the old days, a car battery essentially worked, or it didn’t; if it was good enough to start the car, it was good enough. Moderns vehicles are a different story. A faulty battery can cause a variety of issues, including engine codes, sensor failures, irregular transmission behavior, and the list goes on. Battery failure often causes issues that are commonly misdiagnosed, and in the hands of the wrong auto repair shop, a mechanic may spend hundreds of your hard-earned dollars chasing problems that don’t exist. At Van Meter Auto Repair in Mantua, NJ, our mechanics are familiar with modern vehicles and the problems that accompany them.
Question: Keith, we need a jump, but the bigger problem is the shifter is locked, so we can't push the car out of the lane. Response: Push the shift lever release button by the gear shifter to release the transmission. Learn something new every day. Worked great.
Keith: I'm closing the shop and be at your location in 5 mins. He showed up in 5 and got the car started. We drove the car straight to his shop and left it there for him to replace the battery in the am. Great service thank you Keith VanMeter. - Len S. (5 star review on Yelp)
