Tech Tip Tuesday

Tech Tip Tuesday This simple tip can save you from having a accident and costing your thousands in costly body damage repairs $$$$$. Tire pressure is important for a number of reasons but today I am going to focus on just one. Take a look at the photo of how tire inflation effects how much of your actual tire is touching the ground. The more tire tread that is touching the ground the more traction you will have. We need all the traction we can get when it starts raining like it did last night. What is the proper tire pressure for my car? On most newer cars the tire pressure is posted on a sticker in the drivers door jam. Just open the drivers door and look for a sticker that says tire pressure.

Seeing Green

Seeing Green

We are seeing Green at Leo & Son Garage in Bellflower California. We just replaced the grass in the front of our facility with artificial turf, no more watering no more mowing just year round beauty. We have had replacing the grass on our to do list for some time now. Now it's done we love it. This grass should be virtually maintenance free, especially if dogowners clean up after their pets (fingers crossed). The days of loud mowers waking up our neighbors are gone. The days of over watering or under watering are gone. The cost of Water fertilizer and lawn mowing are gone for good. At leo and Son Garage we are always looking forbetter and more efficient ways of working on our customers cars and trucks day in and day out. Doing a better job is a ongoing battle to keep up with training , and having excellent staff to make the process work easy. My job as a manager is to make sure all the pieces work together and that includes the appearance of our facility. I h ... read more

Less Expensive More Accurate Repair

Less Expensive More Accurate Repair

If you're like me, anything past an oil change is out of my league. At least that's what I thought. I love having a car. I love the freedom it gives me, I love that it allows me to get to where I need (or want) to be. What I don't love is maintaining my car. This is most likely because I didn't really know what I needed to know. I just needed to know the basics. I needed to know how and when to maintain my car. How often should I get an oil change? How soon do I need to replace my tires and how do I know? These are all questions and concerns that I had that stopped me from wanting to deal with it. I wish my car would just go and would always just go regardless of how often I would have it serviced. Unfortunately it's just not that way. Luckily I work at an auto repairshop now and I have people who can help educate me on keeping my car going. So now I can relay that message to you. Here are a few tips on keeping your car in good shape and ensuring that you have a les ... read more
