Have you checked your brakes lately?

Have you checked your brakes lately?   I know you expect them to stop your car or truck when you step on that brake pedal, but when they don't work as expected it's too late and then you have an accident with damage to your vehicle but more importantly to the people inside your car and those on the road who may be in your path. 

Let's avoid that issue!  Test your brakes by lightly tapping them in different situations when the roads are both wet and dry.   If your vehicle is pulling to one side, your brake pedal pulses up and down or the steering wheel shakes when the brakes are applied, you are very much overdue for a brake check.  Getting in early will save you money as it is always easier to fix a problem before it becomes a huge issue and your brakes are gone requiring new brakes, pads, rotars, and drums. 

When in doubt stop by our shop and have one of our professional automotive repair technicians take a look.    Don't wait until it's too late to solve these problems and let us help you stay safe on the road!  After all, that is the reason we raise these garage doors every day and open these tool boxes.  We love what we do and want to ensure our drivers can stay on the roads longer with their vehicles safer and more cost efficiently.

When you should check & change transmission fluids.

How often should you get your transmission fluid changed?  The transmission industry's standard is 25,000 to 30,000 miles or every two years.  If you tow a trailer, 15,000 to 20,000 miles is recommended depending on the amount of towing. Motorhomes can vary with the amount that they are driven. The best thing that you can do is check the fluid regularly; notice the color, odor and level of the fluid. If you notice a change in the color, odor or level, have it checked by one of our trained technicians.

What type of fluid should you use? The suggested fluids differ from one manufacturer to another and you can check the owner's manual to ensure the correct transmission fluid is utilized per your specific auto or truck make and model.  However, here our technicians have a computer program that will insure the right fluid goes into your transmission. We offer a full line of transmission fluids to cover all the various demands of any car or truck.

72 Nova SS Receives New Life After Autocross Event

Ridetech, a well known Jasper-based high performance auto supplier, hosted a brand new street car event appropriately named Road Trip-Cars and Cones 2016. Around one hundred thirteen drivers registered for the event which featured four autocross events in five days with a scenic cruise route which wound through North Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky, ending with a dinner and after party at Ridetech's facility here in Jasper, Indiana.

Chris Rhinehart, an event participant, from Frederick Maryland, experienced engine trouble near Bowling Green, Kentucky. Rather than have his Nova towed all the way back home, Chris decided to have it towed to the Ridetech facility and purchase a JASPER engine. Chris contacted Jasper Engines & Transmissions and spoke with veteran Authentic/Performance Sales Rep. Larry Salmon, who discussed Chris' options and arranged the delivery of a JASPER Class-1 Chevrolet 350 engine on Friday.

Saturday morning at 7AM, Chris and three of his buddies began the engine exchange and and by two o'clock in the afternoon the Nova was purring and as good as new. Chris ended his weekend on a happy note with a smooth 800 mile cruise back to Maryland. We would like to thank Chris for his engine purchase and hope he enjoys his JASPER-Powered Nova at many more autocross events!
