Understanding Advancing Auto Technology for Your Vehicle

It’s becoming all too easy for us to rely on technology. We have apps for pretty much everything, and most of us carry little computers around in our pockets every day. Despite all the conveniences technology offers us, it’s still important to use common sense when it comes to our cars. Auto Tech Is Advancing Quickly While it’s true you can usually rely on your car’s sensors to tell you when the air in [...]

Common Car Repairs and When to Plan for Them

It’s inevitable that at some point, you’ll need to schedule more than just routine maintenance for your vehicle. Hopefully, though, you won’t encounter all of these issues at once! Prevention Is Worth a Pound of Cure As you know, it’s usually cheaper to prevent a problem with your car than it is to fix it.

The 2021 Top Safety Picks

Introducing the IIHS When it comes to gauging a car’s relative safety, based on features and handling, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is the organization to which motorists turn. A nonprofit organization that is independently run, the IIHS conducts thorough tests on virtually every make and model of vehicle — be it car, truck, or semi — from each manufacturer and in every year of release. As such, they have created the [...]

Understanding Your Vehicle’s HVAC System

There are many indicators that we can look toward to measure the development of the modern era: how small our cellphones are getting, how smart our houses have become, and how fast we can travel around the world, just to name a few. Mankind is on the cusp of democratizing space travel and we can order as many tacos as we want with a flick of our finger and have them delivered straight to [...]

Listening to Your Car: It’s Tune-Up Time

Our cars have long been considered an extension of ourselves — part avatar for our personality, part member of the family. In many ways, our cars are like a dog or cat; they need to be groomed, fed regularly, and taken in for regular check-ups to ensure that they’re healthy. Anyone who owns a pet will be able to identify when they are trying to communicate that they’re hungry, sick, or want to go [...]

What Makes a Good Mechanic?

Have you ever heard someone say, “I can’t define it, but I know it when I see it?” The concept is simple but powerful. When asked to describe the taste of salt, you might use words like bitter or acidic or sharp, and all of those would be right and they would also be wrong. Other things have the opposite problem: everyone agrees on what something is but might disagree on what best lives [...]

Keeping Your Transmission Healthy

More Than Just An Oil Change

The temptation with any car repair shop (as with any business) is to pigeonhole them into a single service. Fast-food burger joints offer salads, shoe stores sell handbags, and Master Muffler is far more than our most popular service. While it’s true that we have been—and remain—a trusted team to help you get your oil changed, our car repair experts in Orem offer a multifaceted portfolio of services to keep your car roadworthy all [...]

Back to Basics: Learning About The Fuel System

When it comes to learning how cars work, car owners usually follow down one of two paths; either they learn as much as they can, picking up knowledge as they go along and showing general interest in how things work, or they choose not to learn about how the car’s various systems work in tandem to keep them moving. There is no right or wrong method. As long as the driver is responsible behind [...]

Five Signs You Need New Tires

Do you recall the scene in A Christmas Story when Ralphie, (our childhood protagonist, now turned into a reflecting adult), reminisces about his father’s tires? “My old man’s spare tires were only tires in the academic sense. They were round and had once been made of rubber.” He remarks on this as we see his father pull the baldest tire imaginable from the trunk of the car and begin to swap it out for [...]
