At Schaeffer Automotive in Huntingburg, IN, we understand that there are endless ways a transmission can sound, behave, and feel, depending on what type of vehicle it’s in, what type of transmission it is, and the state of the vehicle’s repair. Sometimes, when people buy a different vehicle, they notice it doesn’t act the same as their last vehicle, which leads them to believe there is a problem.
If you spend much time on the road, you’ll eventually encounter a flat tire on your vehicle. At Schaeffer Automotive in Huntingburg, IN we want to prepare you for what you should do next. First, get out of traffic immediately. It’s best if you can stop on solid, flat ground, out of the way of traffic where other drivers can see you. Don’t continue driving; your steering is compromised, and you risk damaging expensive components, including your rim. Next, decide whether you want to call a tow truck, or change the tire yourself. If you have towing and assistance then you can call for help but it is always great to be able to handle the situation yourself if need be as there is not always cell phone service and you sometimes do not have the luxury of the added time it would take to wait for that assistance.

In the old days, when your headlight burned out you just replaced the entire thing with a new glass bulb. Modern headlights are plastic assemblies, with a bulb inserted through the back. What this means, is that the plastic lens that light shines through never gets replaced, and eventually will begin to oxidize and deteriorate due to time, weather, and heat from your bulb. Today you will learn when it’s time to fix or replace your headlight assemblies, what options you have in doing so, and what the benefits are.
