Automotive Tips from Phil's Pro Auto Service: When to Replace Your Wiper Blades

There are several important factors that go into how often Greeley drivers should replace their wiper blades. Of course, the more you use your wipers, the faster the blades will wear out – especially if you use them on an icy windshield. Whether it’s a lot of bugs and road grime from Colorado freeway driving or lots of wet weather – your blades get a work out and start to wear. But your wiper blades break down even when they aren’t used frequently. They are damaged by sunlight and temperature changes as well. The rubber in the blades can dry out and crack and eventually fall apart. Check your wipers: If they’re not doing their important job, have them replaced at Phil's Pro Auto Service in Greeley. Talk to your Phil's Pro Auto Service service advisor about how you drive - we can counsel you on the optimal blades for your needs.Phil's Pro Auto Service707 12th StreetGreeley, Colorado 8063197 ... read more

Automotive Tips from Phil's Pro Auto Service: Making Your A/C System Last Longer

Greeley drivers know that if their air conditioning system isn’t making cool air like it used to, there is a problem. It may be as simple as adding more of the right kind of refrigerant.Your A/C requires special compressor oil, which circulates through the system along with the refrigerant, to lubricate and protect expensive components and keep seals and gaskets from drying out. If refrigerant has leaked out – so has the compressor oil. This oil needs to be replenished whenever refrigerant is added.An air conditioning inspection at Phil's Pro Auto Service will uncover any potential problems and identify any necessary repairs needed to get Greeley drivers on the road to cool air once again.Give us a call.Phil's Pro Auto Service707 12th StreetGreeley, Colorado 80631970-353-2739http://www.philsproauto.com
