    Vehicle Tips

    According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.

    The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)

    Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.

    Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.

    Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.

    A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.

    Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.

    Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.

    Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.

    Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.

    Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.

    Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.

    Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.

    Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.

    Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.

    Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.

    Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.

    Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.

    Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.

    Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.

    What Our Customers Are Saying

    -Erick G.

    I had my car towed here (showing up at a mechanic with my car that wont start is my nightmare getting-ripped-off scenario.) But I browsed around beforehand and im sure i got the best price. Same day service, diagnostics/parts/labor, they did everything in a day! Old-school looking spot but very professional service. They may look busy but i called ahead and they made sure they had room for me. Yea the phone# works!

    -Nate W.

    I was visiting LA for spring break and my coolant system was having issues. Turns out a couple of my lines were broken. Thankfully the issue occurred near this repair shop. I drove it down and the owner gave amazing service. He actually found a second issue with my coolant system and gave me a great deal on repairing it and a 1 year warranty on the parts. Fair costs, great service, and same-day repair. What more could you ask for!

    -Sarah I.

    Gina the manager is amazing. They fixed my car really really fast and we're so incredibly kind! Thanks Gina!

    -Christine S.

    Great family business run by a father/daughter team. They were helpful, friendly and attentive, and worked hard to actually diagnose my car's problem. Good prices and very honest and trustworthy! They won't try to scare you into things you don't need. Highly recommended (and convenient to downtown!).

    -Victoria P.

    The gentleman that assisted me with a flat tire on my vehicle was very friendly and helped me right away. I paid $15 for them to fix my flat tire. Recommend this place.

    -Theodor A.

    Best service in LA. They don't cheat you out of your money. They work based off of ethics and morals, not money. I love Witmer auto service, they're hardworking and honest.

    -Joseph B.

    Great service! Fast, trustworthy and very affordable. Keep the good work up guys!

    -Heidi C.

    After being stressed that I didnt know a good mechanic, I asked a friend for a referral and I am soo glad they recommended Witmer Auto Service. They were very friendly and professional and told me exactly what services my car needed. I witnessed first hand the manager calling around to get the best price on the parts. They definitely are honest and that is hard to find now a days. My car was fixed the same day. Excellent service! I would definitely recommend this family business.

    -Bianca C.

    My car window got stuck open and I needed a quick solution. I found this shop via Google Maps, it was the closest to me and the best reviewed in the area so I decided to take a shot. I was met by Rene and he helped me solve my issue with such kindness and generosity. He did fast and reliable work with a 1yr warranty. He and his sister were great and I would definitely come back here again. Highly recommended!
