Without a working battery, your car will not be able to start. If you perform proper maintenance, however, an average car battery can start your car reliably for roughly four years. Your vehicle's radio and headlights, plus a slew of other important functions, are powered by an electrical current generated by your vehicle’s engine but a vital part of generating electricity is having a place to store it while it’s not being used, which is where a car battery comes into play. The battery holds electrical energy while a car is off in order to help the engine turn over and create a spark to start internal combustion.  What you don't want is to have a bad battery!!

When you get in your car, truck, SUV, or minivan to drive and the A/C does not work what could be wrong? Here at ABC Transmission & Auto Care / Auto Body, we have some simple answers to help you understand how your vehicle A/C system works. The first question we are asked is "Why isn't my air conditioner blowing cold air?" Let's talk about what could be happening.

If you own or manage a fleet or commercial truck, you know what a headache it can be to take the same vehicle in for maintenance over and over, wasting valuable time. At ABC Transmission & Auto Care / Auto Body in Atlantic Beach, FL, we have the technology, equipment and technicians necessary to get the job done fast, and get it done right.

fuel in tank pumping

If you drive a car, truck, or SUV that runs on gasoline, there's a good chance you’ve run it low on fuel a few times (or more than a few times,) and maybe even run out of gas completely a time or two. At ABC Transmission & Auto Care / Auto Body in Atlantic Beach, FL, we like to provide information applicable to you. Running a vehicle low on fuel is something we’re all guilty of, and most of us don’t think twice about it. But, can it be bad for your car?

I didn't even pay a physical visit to ABC's facility but John, the owner, gave me the exceptional service of good-hearted advice to minimize my expenditure by starting in the proper order of my vehicle's problem. I called under the impression I needed a starter and potentially a battery. My impression would have been a more fruitful reward to the business of ABC if reciprocated with labor and two parts, but John advised that I begin with the battery on my own if I could. John's advice saved me a trip and a higher tab. Now I'll be sure to pay a visit when I actually need to!

Transmission failure rarely happens out of the blue - there’s a good chance a transmission will give you a good amount of warning before kicking the bucket. Here are some things you can watch out for, from ABC Transmission & Auto Care / Auto Body in Atlantic Beach, FL.

engine oil

Everyone from mechanics, to your uncle that works on cars, has at some point given you advice concerning engine oil. The fact of the matter is that while we are familiar with words like “synthetic” and “oil weight,” many people don’t know exactly what the terminology means, or why common knowledge about oil exists in the form that it does. At ABC Transmission & Auto Care / Auto Body in Atlantic Beach, FL, we keep things clear and simple. The more you know about your vehicle, the better equipped you are to keep it maintained, and we know a thing or two about vehicles. We have compiled a short list of common myths for you, most of which you’ve heard, but maybe never second guessed.
