A properly maintained air conditioning system can help keep you comfortable on hot summer days. Did you know that a properly functioning A/C system is also instrumental in helping to defrost your windshield on those cold, damp winter days as well? A properly functioning A/C system helps to dehumidify the air passing through the defrosting system enabling your windows to quickly clear and stay fog free. If your car's air conditioning system does not seem to be operating as efficiently as it once did, let us perform a full system performance check for you. We can test the system, find the leaks, and recharge the system so you get the proper operation you deserve. Let TA Automotive Conyers inspect your vehicle's air conditioning today.

A vehicle alignment brings the car's suspension into the proper vehicle manufacturer's specification by adjusting components so that the wheels are aligned with each other and the road surface. A proper alignment squares the car's wheels and axles with each other so that they are moving in the same direction. Each vehicle's manufacturer designates standard angles for the alignment, specified in degrees which provide improved handling and performances as well as maximizing tire tread life. TA Automotive Conyers offers state of the art alignment equipment.

Most people know that it is the battery that allows your vehicle to be started when it is not running. Many people are not aware that once your car is running, it is your alternator that takes care of running all of the systems on your car that require electricity. This includes your headlights, heating/air conditioning system, and your car audio just to name a few. The alternator is responsible for keeping the battery charged, so it is always ready to start the vehicle after it has been shut off. If your alternator fails, the battery’s reserve power will quickly be depleted causing your car to die or fail to start after it has been turned off. Items such as a broken pulley, a loose belt, or broken and corroded wiring can also cause the charging system not to function properly. If you suspect a problem with your starting or charging system, have TA Automotive Conyers test and service it today.

Your battery supplies the electrical service to start your car when it is not running. It also serves as a reserve capacitor to protect sensitive electronics on your car from voltage spikes originating from the alternator. A bad battery will usually cause your car not to start, but in extreme failures, it can cause your car to die on the road. Extreme weather conditions such as heat or freezing cold temperatures can cause a weak battery to fail. Have your battery tested to check its performance. If the results indicate your battery is in need of replacement, TA Automotive Conyers can quickly provide a suitable replacement.

Your vehicle’s belts and hoses play a critical role in the proper operation of your cooling system, air conditioning system, charging system and more. Old hoses can become cracked and dry rotted, causing them to squeal or break. Radiator and heater hoses will deteriorate with age and can get hard and crack or become soft and porous leading to system leakage and severe engine problems like overheating. A broken belt can lead to loss of power steering, failure to charge, or engine overheating, leaving you stranded on the road. It's important to have these components checked at least annually and replaced when needed. The typical life span of a belt or hose is seldom over 5 years. Your friends at TA Automotive Conyers can inspect your belts and hoses and tell you if they are in need of replacement.

Your brake system transmits the force you apply to the brake pedal, down hydraulic lines to the pistons in the brake calipers and wheel cylinders at your wheels. This force creates friction between the brake pads or shoes and the brake rotors or drums. This friction creates the stopping force needed to quickly and safely stop your car. If you're experiencing brake symptoms such as a squealing or grinding noise, a pulsating brake pedal, an abnormal amount of brake pedal travel, or a red brake light indicator, it is time to have your brakes checked as soon as possible. At TA Automotive Conyers, we can quickly and professionally solve your problem and get you back on the road safely.

Your car’s cooling system is designed to bring your vehicle up to operating temperature quickly while preventing it from running too hot. Your vehicle uses antifreeze to absorb heat from the engine and move it to the radiator where it can be cooled. Your water pump is tasked with creating the pressure to circulate the coolant through the hoses from the engine to the radiator. The thermostat is used to regulate the flow of the coolant from the engine to the radiator to maintain a proper operating temperature of around 190 degrees. If any of these components are not operating correctly, your car may run too cool causing poor performance and fuel economy while polluting the air around it. It may also cause the engine to run too hot and overheat causing possible severe engine damage. If you have concerns about the proper operation of your cooling system, have it inspected and serviced today at TA Automotive Conyers.

Many trucks and cars today use engines that run on diesel fuel. While these engines are generally more fuel efficient and reliable than their gas counter parts, they do require specialized maintenance to keep them running smoothly. Efficient operation of things like glow plugs, fuel pumps, fuel injectors, and turbochargers are necessary for proper operation. Regular maintenance to the engine oil and filter, fuel filter, and water separator are critical in keeping your diesel operating as smoothly as the day it was built. TA Automotive Conyers has the tools, equipment, and expertise necessary to keep your diesel car or light truck running its best.

Most modern cars and light trucks have a differential. All-wheel drive vehicles need a differential between each set of wheels as well as a differential between the front and back wheels because the front wheels travel a different distance through a turn than the rear wheels. The differential transfers engine power to the wheels and adjusts to the difference in the wheel speed. The differential allows the wheels to turn at different speeds while maintaining control of the vehicle. The differential can experience heavy wear and tear. Noise coming from the differential can be a signal that your differential fluid may need serviced, or it can be a sign of worn gears and/or bearing due to regular wear and tear. TA Automotive Conyers can quickly diagnose and correct these types of issues.

Many of today’s cars and light trucks employ the use of all wheel drive or four wheel drive. While each manufacturer may have a different system for providing power to all four wheels, they all use some sort of differential or transfer case to get the power from front to rear and left to right. Some common symptoms of four wheel drive failure include: illuminated dash indicators, failure to lock the front and rear together, shaking and vibration or ominous sounding noises when engaged. If you think you have a problem with your four wheel or all wheel drive system, trust the experts at TA Automotive Conyers to quickly and accurately diagnose and repair the problem.

Your exhaust system takes the used up fuel and air charge from your engine, cleans it of its hazardous pollutants, and silences it before pushing it out the back of the vehicle. Common components of the exhaust system are the exhaust manifolds, catalytic converters, flexible sections, center pipes, exhaust resonators and mufflers. These items work in harmony to reduce noise and vibration, remove heat, and eliminate harmful emissions from the engine. If your vehicle is loud, lacks power, or has an emissions light indicating a catalytic converter problem, your exhaust system is likely the problem. The experts at TA Automotive Conyers can quickly identify and resolve the problem in a timely, cost efficient manner.

Your oil removes heat from the engine and lubricates its moving parts. Changing your vehicle’s oil routinely is one of the most important things you can do to promote long term vehicle performance. As you drive, the oil pump circulates oil into your oil filter and throughout your engine. The oil filter cleans dirt and deposits out of the oil, keeping your engine clean and protected. As time passes, the oil filter will begin to get clogged with this debris and will no longer be able to keep the oil clean for the engine. Most manufacturers recommend changing the oil between 3,000 and 5,000 miles (5,000 and 8,000 kilometers) to insure long life and maximum performance. At TA Automotive Conyers, we understand the importance of an oil change.

When your car rolls down the road, it is imperative that your tires be in proper balance. Out of balance tires will wear quicker and possibly cause symptoms such as vibration or a shaking sensation in the seat or steering wheel. These symptoms may become more or less obvious as the speed of the vehicle changes. As the tires wear, it is normal for the tires to become out of balance. It is recommended that tires be balanced every 15,000 miles or 24,000 kilometers to ensure maximum tire life and smooth, quiet operation. The tire professionals at TA Automotive Conyers can quickly and affordably care for all of your tire needs.

Tires are no longer just rubber and oil. Instead, they are made up of several layers of materials, each playing its own role in how the tire functions. Today's tires last longer and are less prone to dangerous blowouts than older tires. They are also better at maintaining contact with the road and can even help a car's performance. Choosing the right tires has drastically changed over the years. As an example a vehicle towing heavy weight will need a high load rating tire. If a vehicle is driven in an area with heavy rain or snow, you might prefer the purchase tires with a better traction rating, the life expectancy of a tire depends on road conditions, driving habits, usage and the type of tire. Your tires need to be changed at the very least every 6 years. The rubber in the tires dries out over time. This can lead to cracking, greater stress on the tire's infrastructure and catastrophic failure. A great drive starts with properly installed tires! At TA Automotive Conyers we have professionally trained staff on hand to provide the best tires and tire installation in the industry.

Your tire pressure monitoring system, often referred to as TPMS, is an electronic system designed to monitor the air pressure in your tires. This system uses real time tire pressure information to alert you if there is a tire pressure problem. If your tire pressure drops to an unsafe level, it will alert you via a light or warning message. Many systems will also tell you which tire is low. Low tire pressure is not only a safety issue, but it will also drastically shorten the life of a tire. Tire pressure sensors are powered by a non serviceable battery and will eventually fail due to low battery voltage. The average lifespan of a tire pressure sensor is 7 to 9 years. It's also recommended that sensors be replaced or properly serviced when new tires are installed. At TA Automotive Conyers we have the tools, equipment, training and knowledge to properly service or diagnose your Tire Pressure Monitoring System. We would be happy to handle all of your tire service needs today.

Your tires connect you directly to the road surface and are the single most important safety item on your vehicle. Today’s tires are designed specifically for certain types of vehicles, road conditions, and weather conditions. Advancements in technology have also created tires that last longer, stop faster and run more quietly than ever before. Newer all season tires can provide good all around weather traction. However, if you spend a lot of time driving in slippery winter conditions, a good snow tire can make a very noticeable improvement in handling. As a tire wears, its ability to provide traction in wet or slippery conditions diminishes accordingly. When a tire reaches less than 3/32 of an inch of tread or 2.4 mm, it should be replaced for safety reasons. Tires should also be replaced if they have severe uneven tread wear, cuts, cracks or bulges on the side walls, have been run flat or are more than six years old. Quality tires can make your drive time safer and more enjoyable. Have the tire experts at TA Automotive Conyers explain your tire options today.

As recently as the early 1990’s, a car’s engine required consistent maintenance on a few basic components. Things like spark plugs, distributor points and condensers, valve adjustments, timing adjustments, and carburetor adjustments were needed on an annual basis. It was this qualified need that prompted the industry to coin the phrase “tune up”. Today a tune up refers to just about any combination of events that cause a car to run poorly. Items such as distributorless ignition, computerized engine controls, and fuel injection have completely changed the needs of the modern car. Things like advances in spark plug technology, and the improved efficiency of the combustion system, have increased the time between basic engine maintenance services drastically. What used to be annually has now increased to 60,000 or even 90,000 mile increments. While things like spark plugs, filters and fluids still need to be replaced at regular intervals to keep your car running problem free, most other components are now likely to last the life of the car. If your car is running poorly or has a warning indicator on the dash, trust the pros at TA Automotive Conyers in Almon, Lithonia and Conyers, GA to pinpoint the problem. We have the tools, equipment and trained experienced technicians to solve the problem quickly and efficiently.

The process of aligning wheels on a car involves adjusting the wheels so they roll straight and are true to the center line of the vehicle. Misaligned vehicles will exhibit accelerated tire wear along with other possible concerns like a crooked steering wheel, pulling to the left or right, or a condition of wondering down the road without tracking straight. Tires that are left out of alignment will wear rapidly and may also develop a wear pattern that makes them excessively noisy while rolling down the road. Your tires are a big investment and your most important factor in traction and braking ability. Protect them by keeping your vehicle properly aligned at TA Automotive Conyers.
