Wheel Bearings
Posted December 12, 2020
While driving here in Florida, most of us don’t give our wheel bearings a thought as long as we start hearing a groaning sound coming from the wheels.

Wheel bearings are low maintenance parts, but that doesn’t mean they last forever. So, what does a wheel bearing actually do? How long does it last? And how long can you help extend its lifespan? We’ll cover all these topics in the video.
Batteries

Did you know that 70% of all batteries fail within 3 years. Extreme heat or cold are big factors of why batteries do not last very long.

When servicing vehicles at our shop, we will check the battery terminals and cables to ensure they are in good working order.Watch our video to learn more.

Multi-Point Inspection
Posted October 17, 2019
A vehicle inspection is a complimentary service usually done while your vehicle is having its oil changed and tires rotated.

In our experience too many customers assume they are getting a good inspection while getting an oil change but this is not always the case.

It takes a well trained technician, a great system and a dedication to excellence to deliver the type of inspection the owner can count on. Watch our video to learn more.
Cooling System - Water Pump
Posted August 5, 2019
In Florida with near 100 degree days, the cooling system working at 100% efficiency is critical to vehicle longevity.

Your vehicle's water pump is the key to making the entire system work.
The engine is cooled by coolant/antifreeze mixed with water. The mixture circulates through the engine, absorbing some of the heat. The coolant then flows through the radiator where air cools it down for the return trip back through the engine.
The water pump is what drives this process. Watch our video to learn more.
Cooling System - Radiator
Posted October 17, 2019
The radiator is a type of heat exchange.
It is designed to transfer heat from the hot coolant that flows through the radiator, to the air blown by a fan.At Steward Automotive Repair we often see radiators with leaks or clogged with dirt or debris. Depending on the damage we will clean or replace it. Watch our video to learn more.
Cooling System - Coolant

The cooling system is a commonly overlooked maintenance service which is the one that keeps your engine operating at the proper temperature. Subsequently we see a lot of cooling system failures.

At Steward Automotive Repair we always do a preventive care inspection on it’s two main components: The Coolant itself and the parts that make up the cooling system. Watch our video to learn more.
Cabin Air Filter

Sometimes customers will confuse the cabin air filter with the engine air filter.The main purpose of the cabin air filter is to clean the air going into your vehicle's passenger cabin stopping all kinds of pollutants.

We invite you to watch our recent video and hopefully this information will keep you on track of your vehicle's maintenance.

When a customer comes in car for a service, for the great majority of cars, the mechanic will use a computer scanner to see if there are any recorded problems. He does this using a tool which accesses the car’s reporting and computer system where any problems are monitored and faults are logged.

Car diagnostics is a very useful way to enables mechanics to more easily identify problems and repair them as quickly as possible, therefore is quick and accurate and there can be cost savings. Minor problems may be identified and fixed before they have a chance to escalate into big and expensive problems!
