In life, you learn that more expensive doesn’t always mean better. When it comes to transmission fluid, does it matter? Are name brand fluids better than the cheapest option? Schaeffer Automotive in Huntingburg, IN has the answers.
Do you have a noisy vehicle? If so, you may need a new muffler or exhaust system from our team here at Schaeffer Automotive in Huntingburg. The purpose of your exhaust system is not only to reduce the noise but also to redirect fumes away from your vehicle. Redirecting these fumes protects passengers in the car from toxins created by burning fuel.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless chemical that can escape from an unsecured exhaust system, and if inhaled can pose very serious health hazards. If you experience an unusually loud sound coming from your vehicle, it is vital to get your exhaust system checked immediately!
Keeping the interior of your car, truck, or SUV clean and in good shape is an important part of making your vehicle last. Schaeffer Automotive in Huntingburg has some tips on keeping your car clean inside, and why keeping it clean matters.
Whether it’s a result of maintenance, mileage, or some other factor, it seems that every fleet or commercial diesel leaks a little bit of something.

At Schaeffer Automotive in Huntingburg, IN, we can take care of that for you.
On all modern vehicles, electronic engine controls have truly changed the game in terms of performance, efficiency, and reliability. On diesel trucks, whether you drive a Chevy, Dodge, or Ford, this innovation has been particularly revolutionary. The gains diesel engines have made in the past couple of decades are impressive by any standard, and electronic engine controls are a huge contributor to those developments.
Whether you drive a Duramax, Cummins, or Powerstroke diesel pickup, you have an exhaust system that is prone to failure. When you have a leak that needs attention, Schaeffer Automotive in Huntingburg, IN can help.
Exhaust issues aren’t typically a big deal, which means they tend to be neglected. As long as the truck is still running right, many people don’t make the time to have an issue taken care of. Plus, exhaust systems are particularly susceptible to problems.
