  • Gas Savings in MINNEAPOLIS: Sharpen Your Pencil

    Oct 21, 2018

    High gas prices in MINNEAPOLIS increase the cost of living for MN drivers. You've probably budgeted a certain amount for vehicle related expenses. Increased fuel costs now consume a larger portion of our incomes, causing some MINNEAPOLIS vehicle owners to skimp in other areas – like scheduled maintenance.

    According to MN news reports and automotive industry studies, this is becoming increasingly more common. In fact, nine out of ten personal vehicles on the road have at least one maintenance or repair item that hasn't been done. Some of these items pose serious safety risks. Others are just more likely to make it more expensive to drive.

    In this area, we can take a lesson from professional MINNEAPOLIS vehicle owners. I'm talking about fleet owners and operators. You know, MINNEAPOLIS folks like the trucking companies and delivery services. Because their livelihood depends on it, they have gotten scheduled maintenance down to a science. And the last thing they skimp on is regular maintenance.

    Why is that? Well, for one thing they know that routine maintenance prevents expensive repairs and costly breakdowns. They also know that a well-maintained vehicle uses less fuel. For them, even a small decrease in fuel efficiency may put their MINNEAPOLIS business in the red.

    So what does this mean to MINNEAPOLIS drivers? Well, there's a 90 percent chance that you're missing some service that would improve your fuel economy. Here's a quick reminder list:

    Fuel system cleaning, transmission service, differential service, engine air filter, wheel alignment, oil change, tune up.
    Ring any bells? Can most MINNEAPOLIS vehicle owners honestly say that there isn't at least one thing on the list that hasn't been done?

    Let's suppose you chose to spend $150 and get caught up on some of these services at Affordable Transmissions. Figure that they combine to improve your fuel efficiency by 15 percent. What would that mean to your pocketbook?

    Well, the average personal vehicle in MINNEAPOLIS is driven about 12,000 a year. If you get 20 miles per gallon in your vehicle, over the course of one year you would pay for the $150 worth of service and save an additional $165 dollars if gas is at t$3.50. If gas is $4.50, you would save $255. And you'd rack up savings of $345 dollars with gas at $5.50.

    GAS PRICE
    $3.50
    $4.50
    $5.50

    20 MPG
    $165
    $255
    $345

    From this you can see that the more fuel costs, the more it pays to keep up on scheduled maintenance. Some of us drive trucks in MINNEAPOLIS for work or recreation – or want a large SUV for family needs. A 15 percent improvement in fuel economy can generate huge savings – $650 a year if gas is $4.50 a gallon in MINNEAPOLIS. Take a look at this table to see where your savings could lie.

     

    GAS PRICE

    A) $3.50, B) $4.50, C) $5.50

    10 MPG: A) $480, B) $660, C) $840

    20 MPG: A) $165, B) $255, C) $345

    30 MPG: A) $60, B) $120, C) $180

     

    So catch up on those services you've been neglecting at Affordable Transmissions. Get a couple done now and a couple next time. Chances are you'll save a lot of money at MINNEAPOLIS gas pumps this year – and a lot more on repairs in years to come.

    Oct 14, 2018

    Your vehicle is important to you, and keeping it running properly is important to your lifestyle. That's why you're smart enough to have it serviced regularly at Affordable Transmissions in MINNEAPOLIS. And even though it may just be routine maintenance, you want it done right by automotive professionals.

    It's also very important to your MINNEAPOLIS service center to keep you happy and on the road. You might be surprised at the amount of money our MINNEAPOLIS auto service center spends annually to make sure our friendly and knowledgeable technicians are properly trained.

    Affordable Transmissions offers a variety of automotive services for many kinds of vehicles. We need to be current on the latest techniques and parts so that we can give you quality service. Our MINNEAPOLIS service centers subscribe to data services that list the high quality parts and fluids recommended by your manufacturer.

    And each service has a checklist of standard procedures. Affordable Transmissions technicians follow these procedures so they can safely deliver a consistent level of high-quality service.

    Some services at Affordable Transmissions require the use of specialized equipment. Affordable Transmissions technicians are trained extensively on this equipment so that they can service your car quickly and efficiently.

    Classroom, video and hands-on training is provided by the company and outside trainers. It's not only important that friendly and knowledgeable technicians be able to perform a given task, they also need to be thoroughly trained in inspection and diagnostic techniques. One of the great services they perform is to detect potential problems before they become serious.

    The automotive service industry has standards for classifying and communicating problems.

    Hey MINNEAPOLIS Drivers; What Is the Most Distracting Food?

    Sep 30, 2018



    So what is the most distracting food to have in the car while driving around MINNEAPOLIS?

    Is it:

    1. A Hamburger;
    2. Coffee;
    3. A Soft Drink, or
    4. Gummy Bears?

    Well, you may be surprised to learn that all but the gummy bears are in the top ten most distracting foods when you are driving. But if you chose 'coffee,' then give yourself an extra two points.  Coffee is the number one food distraction for drivers in MINNEAPOLIS and around the country.

    Food distractions cause 25 percent of all car accidents; over a million and a half each year!

    You'll notice that all of the top ten distracting food items are messy. Messy foods are the types of food you might spill (very distracting!), then try to clean up (a safe-driving impossibility!). If you gotta eat on the run, take five-then drive. You'll thank yourself later for two reasons: one, that you can actually relax for just a moment in our fast-paced world, and two, you won't have to worry about getting that cinnamon roll frosting out of your dashboard after that near miss.

    Keep drinks in spill-proof containers, too, so you can keep your eyes on the MINNEAPOLIS road without worrying about where that spill is headed.

    So, taking a food break… or filling out accident reports. We don't have to ask you which you prefer; it's a no brainer.

    Change Your Wiper Blades Twice Yearly at Affordable Transmissions

    Sep 23, 2018

    Because 90% of our driving decisions are based on visual information, unobscured vision is paramount. Which brings us to the topic of today's Affordable Transmissions article: wiper blades. While this isn't the most exciting automotive subject, it's important. You wouldn't drive at night in MINNEAPOLIS with your headlights off, but a dirty or streaked vehicle windshield can catch the glare of the sun or on-coming headlights and make it just as difficult to see.

    Most of us in MINNEAPOLIS replace our wiper blades when they no longer do the job. They are so worn, hard or brittle that they can't clean the windshield. They may even be falling apart. In other words, we deal with our wiper blades from a failure perspective. We address them when they no longer function. The theory, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," doesn't apply here. Instead, we should think about wipers blades as an important safety system that we should maintain rather than repair.

    MN automotive experts recommend that we change our wiper blades twice a year, in the spring and fall. That way you have functional blades for those MINNEAPOLIS spring showers and winter storms.

    When we use our wipers a lot, they get worn from the MINNEAPOLIS road grime and bug juice. Even if we don't use them very often, they're exposed to the sun, heat and cold, and air which cause them to dry out, become brittle and break.

    And of course, you need a good windshield washer fluid in your vehicle to help the wipers do their job. Always use washer fluid because plain water doesn't work as well and it can freeze in the reservoir. If you're driving where there are a lot of bugs in MN, you can pay a little more and get fluid that does a better job of clearing them. If you live where you have extremely cold winters, you can get fluid that resists freezing.

    Like everything else in the automotive world, there've been some big advancements in wiper blades, both in terms of the design and the materials from which the blade is made. If you are a local MINNEAPOLIS driver that has a need for better than average windshield wipers, you can pay some more for an upgraded wiper. And if you live where there's a lot of snow and ice in MN, they make special winter blades that don't clog up and freeze like standard blades.

    At one of your fall and spring oil changes, ask your Affordable Transmissions service advisor which is best wiper blade for your driving conditions. Replace your blades on schedule so you never have to struggle with your vision when you switch on your wipers.

    Maintaining Your Older Car in MINNEAPOLIS, MN

    Sep 2, 2018



    The government mandates a lot of equipment on cars in MINNEAPOLIS, MN: emission devices and control computers, safety equipment like airbags and crash worthiness requirements. All of this is great for the MINNEAPOLIS motoring public, but it does add quite a bit to the price of a new vehicle.

    Because new vehicles are more expensive, people in the MINNEAPOLIS area are driving their old vehicles longer. The average vehicle is now over nine years old. Two thirds of vehicles on the road in MN have more than 75,000 miles (120,000 km) on them. As cars age, their performance drops, they have difficulty idling for long periods and are more sensitive to weather extremes. Fortunately today's cars are up to the challenge – but they need a little help to keep on goin'.

    Give Affordable Transmissions a call at (763) 533-1169 to schedule your next maintenance.

    Some owner's manuals don't specify service requirements at higher mileage. That doesn't mean it doesn't have to be done. In fact, it's more important than ever to stay on top of routine maintenance for cars with more than 75,000 miles (120,000km).

    First, just extend regular service intervals out: for instance a service that's recommended every 15,000 miles (24,000 km) should be performed at 15,000, 30,000, 45,000 and 60,000 miles (24,000, 48,000, 72,000 and 96,000 km) and so on. Because of the additional stress older engines experience, the severe service maintenance schedule is more appropriate than the regular schedule; ask your service advisor. Watch for leaks; seals and gaskets dry out over time and don't hold the fluids as well as they used to.

    It's also time to make sure you have a good technician, like those here at Affordable Transmissions. There are some services and replacements that are scheduled after you put on some clicks, like timing belts, valve train adjustments, suspension, anti-lock brake service, air bags, etc. And unexpected repairs down the road are just par for the course. Check for unusual sounds, smells or the way your car feels. These could be hints that trouble's brewing. Better to catch it early before it turns into a costly repair.

    And a regular wash and wax will help maintain your car's appearance. One of the things you can do to really help your high mileage vehicle is to begin using high mileage formulation fluids. There are special engine oils, coolants, and transmission and power steering fluids that are formulated for cars that have a few clicks on the old odometer.

    High mileage oil is designed to condition seals and gaskets, reduce wear and avoid premature burn off. Older engines are dirtier inside – and dirty engines contaminate their oil faster. High mileage oil has special additives that clean the engine, removing sludge deposits over time. The result is less stress on the engine, better fuel economy and excellent wear protection.

    Studies have even shown that using high mileage fluids early will actually prevent some of the problems of high mileage vehicles. So once you hit around 50,000 miles (80,000 km), consider stepping up to high mileage formulations. High mileage fluids cost a bit more than standard fluids because of the additional additives, but they can be worth their weight in gold in terms of preventing repair costs down the road. It does cost more to properly maintain a higher mileage vehicle – but it's way cheaper than a new car payment!

    Severe Service Requirements

    Jul 22, 2018

    A lot of MINNEAPOLIS drivers have asked whether or not they should use their severe service maintenance schedule, which is listed in their vehicle's  owner's  manual. It can be somewhat confusing, so we decided to consult an expert. Cricket Killingsworth is from QMI/Heartland, a manufacturer of automotive products and fluids. She's been in the automotive business for over 30 years and is a speaker, a trainer and a writer.

    Cricket says there's so much confusion on this topic because, "Most owner's manuals actually have two maintenance schedules. Sometimes these are called 'regular service' and 'severe service.' Sometimes they're simply called Schedule 1 and Schedule 2. A severe service schedule recommends that things like an oil change, air filter replacement and transmission service be done more often: either in fewer miles or in less time."

    Foreign and domestic vehicle manufacturers create a specific schedule for each vehicle they manufacture. So there isn't one generic schedule that applies to all vehicles. In addition to your owner's manual, MINNEAPOLIS automotive repair centers (including Affordable Transmissions) subscribe to information services that provide the auto maintenance schedules for every vehicle - so they can help MINNEAPOLIS drivers know when to take care of needed services. Below is a typical definition for severe service.

    • Most trips are less than four miles/six and a half kilometers
    • Most trips are less than 10 miles/16 km and outside temperatures are below freezing
    • You drive regularly in very hot MN weather
    • The engine is at low speed most of the time (not on the freeway)
    • Stop and go driving
    • You drive in in dusty or muddy conditions
    • You routinely tow a trailer, haul heavy loads or carry a car-top carrier around MINNEAPOLIS

    It's common sense for MINNEAPOLIS drivers: Just a few minutes at higher speeds allows the moisture in the oil to evaporate. Very short trips, or trips of less than 10 miles when it's very cold, don't allow the engine to heat up enough to get rid of the water. And water in the oil leads to damaging sludge. Also, towing and heavy loads raise operating temperatures and cause fluids to break down faster. Dusty and muddy driving around MINNEAPOLIS means that more dirt will get past the air filter to contaminate the fuel system and engine oil.

    The bottom line is that you need to decide for yourself if the regular or severe service schedule is right for you, based on your driving habits. Look at your owner's manual or talk with your Affordable Transmissions service advisor who can help you know which schedule to follow.

    Here is what a fleet manager said recently: "Since city miles are generally tougher on vehicles than highway miles, we use the manufacturer's severe service schedule as the basis for our preventative maintenance program. We massage those schedules over time, increasing or decreasing the service intervals so that they make the most sense. There is a little bit of art to go along with the science."

    Make an honest evaluation of your driving habits. Unless you do mostly MN highway driving in moderate weather, you'll likely have a fairly good amount of severe service mixed in. Some MINNEAPOLIS drivers just want to play it safe and follow the severe service recommendations, rather than analyzing how they drive each month.

    Ask us for help evaluating your driving and service needs.

    Keeping Your 'Old Faithful' Auto Running

    May 20, 2018

    At Affordable Transmissions we've had a lot of MINNEAPOLIS customers asking how they can make their vehicles last longer. These questions are actually a reflection of a trend that's been building for several years in MN. The median age of personal vehicles is now over nine years. And 33 percent of all vehicles on the road have over 75,000 miles (120,000 km) on them. It looks like it's going to keep heading in that direction for a while. With high fuel prices, a lot of MN folks are putting off buying a new car. 

    So let's say you're one of the average in the MINNEAPOLIS area; you've got a nine-year-old car with 80,000 miles (130,000 km) on the odometer. What can you do to make it last another year or two?

    Let's start with the premise that there's no reason that a modern car can't run for 200,000 miles (320,000 km) with proper care in MINNEAPOLIS. The engineering and manufacturing quality is there.

    Of course, some parts will wear out along the way, but there's no reason for a catastrophic meltdown if MINNEAPOLIS drivers stay on top of their recommended car maintenance. The maintenance schedule in some vehicle manufacturer's owner's manuals runs out at 60,000 miles (100,000 km) or so: how do MINNEAPOLIS vehicle owners know what to do when they're way past that?

    It is a challenge, for example: If a service is recommended every 15,000 miles (24,000 km) for the first 60,000 miles (100,000 km), you can just keep getting it done at least every 15,000 miles (24,000 km) after you hit 60,000 miles (100,000 km). But, it gets more complicated because older engines lose some efficiency, are dirtier inside and are just more stressed. That means it's very important to not miss any scheduled services. Skipping just one oil change at Affordable Transmissions in MINNEAPOLIS, for example, leaves an opportunity for sludge to build up. Talk to your service advisor at Affordable Transmissions for more details.

    So all the usual things like oil changes, transmission service, coolant service, brakes, power steering, fuel system cleaning – all that stuff needs to be maintained. People responsible for fleet vehicles around MINNEAPOLIS are sticklers for scheduled maintenance. They know that money spent on maintenance saves them three ways:

    1. it keeps efficiency from decreasing;
    2. it prevents repairs, and;
    3. they can postpone purchasing new vehicles.

    Having the oil changed may be the most important thing MINNEAPOLIS drivers can do. A full-service oil change at Affordable Transmissions means that all of your other fluids get topped off so they are never low enough to cause damage. It also gives your friendly and knowledgeable Affordable Transmissions service advisor a chance to spot problems in the early stages so that you can fix them before they get worse. And it gives you a touch point with an automotive professional along the way to remind you of things that aren't scheduled as often – things like differential service and timing belt replacement.

    If you live in the MINNEAPOLIS area and have an older vehicle, you may need to follow the severe service maintenance schedule. Check your owner's manual and talk with us at Affordable Transmissions. Conditions inside an older engine, transmission and cooling system can arguably be considered severe – so shorter intervals could well be called for.

    And, the team at Affordable Transmissions strongly encourages MINNEAPOLIS drivers to consider using high mileage formulation fluids. They're fluids like engine oil, transmission fluid and coolant that are formulated for older engines. They have special additives to clean deposits, and to condition and restore seals and gaskets that dry out with age. Some MINNEAPOLIS auto owners start using higher mileage formulations at around 50,000 miles (80,000 km) as a preventive measure.

    Of course you also want to still look marvelous in your older car as you drive around MINNEAPOLIS. Salt and road grime wreak havoc on your paint job and can lead to body rust – so regular washing is very important. Also, a good quality waxing is recommended at least twice a year.

    The Harm in Skipping an Oil Change for MINNEAPOLIS Drivers

    Apr 16, 2018

    People in MINNEAPOLIS have been hearing a lot about higher oil change intervals these days. Maybe you're wondering: What are the key issues?

    Some new vehicle manufacturers are now recommending much higher oil change intervals than they have in the past. As much as 5,000 to 8,000 miles (8,000 km to 13,000 km) or more. This practice came under scrutiny when four of the largest new vehicle manufacturers announced that owners like those in MINNEAPOLIS were experiencing engine damage resulting from these higher oil change intervals.

    The manufacturers' standard oil drain service for particular vehicles was scheduled at around 7,500 miles/12,000 km. People following these recommendations were experiencing engine damage. It turns out that oil sludge was building up. This caused small oil passages to clog and engine parts to fail.

    What causes oil sludge? It's a factor of time and mileage. There are hot spots in every engine that cause oil burn off that leads to sludge. Also, water from normal condensation can build up in the oil. This water also creates sludge. Severe driving conditions lead to more rapid sludge formation.

    Severe driving around MINNEAPOLIS includes short trips under four miles (six and a half km)  or trips under 10 miles/16 km in freezing conditions. The engine just doesn't get warm enough for the water in the oil to evaporate.

    Severe conditions are at the heart of the problem. Stop-and-go driving, towing, dusty conditions, heavy loads, very hot or very cold temperatures, a car top carrier – these are all conditions that would suggest that the severe service schedule should be considered.

    The severe service schedule has much shorter oil change intervals. People in MINNEAPOLIS just need to honestly evaluate how they drive to determine if they should change their oil closer to the severe service schedule or to the standard schedule.

    Some types of vehicle will give oil change reminders. But it's important to know how that reminder is determined. For some, the reminder simply comes when the standard mileage interval has rolled around. Others use a computer algorithm that takes into consideration the number of cold starts, trip length, engine temperature and so on. It's programmed to approximate where on the standard/severe service spectrum you fall. Some more expensive vehicles actually have sensors that test the cleanliness and effectiveness of the oil.

    For the rest of us, better safe than sorry should be the guiding principle. Talk with your MINNEAPOLIS service advisor at Affordable Transmissions and work it out together. Find out what kind of oil the factory sends out in your vehicle. Sometimes it's a premium grade that costs more than standard oil – but it may be what's needed to meet a higher factory recommended interval.

    If you're realistically conservative, standard grades of oil will take care of you year after year. If you want to push the limits, ask for a premium grade oil to give you extra protection.

    So, what happened with those manufacturers with the problems from higher oil change intervals? They ended up extending the engine warranty for parts that were affected by oil sludge. But they had a stipulation – they lowered the oil change interval and the vehicle owner had to provide proof of oil changes at the new lower interval to keep the extended warranty.

    Your Vehicle Is NOT Maintenance Free, MINNEAPOLIS Car Owners

    Aug 20, 2017

    A generation ago, MINNEAPOLIS drivers seemed to be more inclined to keep their vehicle's preventive maintenance on schedule. One reason for this may be that vehicles back then were a lot less reliable than they are today. Taking your vehicle in to your MINNEAPOLIS shop every year or two for repairs seemed to be a good reminder to keep the oil changed.

    For example, almost everyone in MINNEAPOLIS used to take their vehicles in for regular tune-ups. Vehicles had mechanical ignition systems, which meant ignition points, spark plugs and coils had to be replaced and the timing adjusted every few years. As long as the vehicle was in for a tune-up at Affordable Transmissions, the vehicle was inspected and you took care of any needed repairs at the same time.

    Today's engines have electronic ignition systems and engine control computers. Spark plugs can last for up to 100,000 miles/160,000 km. Vehicle reliability has vastly improved in the last few decades, and surveys report fewer problems with new vehicles than ever before. That also means that our vehicles don't experience a huge performance drop when they're ready for some care. But it doesn't mean that they don't need it.

    Modern MINNEAPOLIS drivers need to rely on calendars and mileage intervals to know when to schedule maintenance. Owner's manuals contain recommendations on when different types of maintenance should be performed. Also, Affordable Transmissions in MINNEAPOLIS can provide advice about auto maintenance schedules. At Affordable Transmissions in MINNEAPOLIS, we know that benefits of staying on top of preventive maintenance are substantial. First, you'll get better engine performance and fuel economy. Those two things alone return the cost of preventive maintenance: in fuel savings and safety. Also, routine maintenance has been proven to prevent major car repairs later on. Again, the cost savings can be significant. As the old saying goes, “Spend a penny, save a dime.”

    Modern vehicle engines may be more durable and reliable than their predecessors, but they're more sophisticated and complex as well. For this reason, preventive maintenance today is even more critical than the old tune-up. Modern engine systems have a lot of parts that have to stay lubricated. These parts can be made of aluminum, plastic or steel. Special additives in lubricants are required to keep each of these materials from breaking down or corroding. Over time, these additives are depleted, even if the vehicle isn't driven. This makes fluid changes a critical part of scheduled maintenance if you want to keep your vehicle on the road.

    As an example, coolant fluid in your engine is a sophisticated mix that not only keeps your vehicle engine cool but also protects and maintains its components. However, this fluid gradually gets contaminated and anti-corrosion additives are depleted. It can become corrosive and damage the vehicle's engine parts it was designed to protect. It can eat holes in your radiator and other engine parts. Changing the coolant could have prevented this damage, and it's a whole lot easier and cheaper than replacing a radiator.

    Timely oil changes are more critical for MINNEAPOLIS drivers than they used to be. Skipping just one oil change can start the build-up of oil sludge in your engine. Sludge can clog small engine passages, which cuts off the supply of lubricant to engine parts. Just this small bit of sludge can reduce the life expectancy of your engine. If the build-up continues, it could lead to engine failure within two or three years.

    One word of warning to anyone in MINNEAPOLIS who purchases used vehicles: take care when buying a leased vehicle. MINNEAPOLIS folks who lease vehicles only intend to drive them for two or three years, generally the years when the vehicle is least likely to experience any problems. One of the reasons people lease vehicles is that they don't want to be bothered with maintenance or vehicle care. Before buying a pre-leased vehicle, be sure to inspect it for signs of damage that result from lack of proper care.

    We can all be grateful for the improved reliability of our modern vehicles. With proper maintenance and care, we can expect them to last longer, perform better, get better fuel economy and require fewer repairs than ever before. We just have to be more conscientious about scheduling time for their care.
