All-Season or Winter Tires, the Definitive Answer!

Posted on 06/11/2013

If you’re having a difficult time determining whether or not you’re looking for a winter tire or an all season tire, look no further. All you have to do is consider the temperature of the place you live and the places you will be travelling to. The rubber compound of an all season tire is much harder than that of a winter tire and is built to perform in temperatures ABOVE Seven Degrees Celsius; conversely, a winter tire’s rubber compound is soft and is built to perform in temperatures Seven Degrees Celsius and BELOW.  So, if you live in or regularly travel to a place with temperatures dropping below Seven Degrees Celsius, you want to be putting winter tires on your vehicle.

The next question is, when do you have your winter tires installed? Common misconception is that time of year is the deciding factor here, but, you will want to your winter tires installed when the temperature is averaging between Zero and Seven Degrees daily. When the road pavement cools down to this temperature, even without snow on the ground, your winter tires will be far better performing than an all season tire as the harder rubber compound on an all-season stiffens and freezes at these low temperatures and affects the overall tire performance.

Check Engine Light

Posted on 06/05/2013

Have you been ignoring that pesky Check Engine light that is constantly staring at you from your vehicles dash cluster? Thought of covering it up with a small piece of tape thinking “If I cannot see the light there is nothing wrong” or said to yourself “but the car seems to be driving fine, there couldn’t possibly be a problem”? Did you know that the Check Engine light can turn on for more than 1,400 different reasons!

Much like the human body, when something is wrong, it sends us signals to let us know. Your check engine light and other indicator lights are your vehicle’s signals telling you there is something wrong. Ignoring these lights can not only cause detrimental damage to your car, but, may also be putting the driver and others on the road in danger.

You should always have your vehicle properly diagnosed when a Check Engine light presents itself. Bring your vehicle to Beech Motorworks and one of our Technicians will connect the system to a diagnostic scan tool and determine which area  is calling to you for help. Depending on the issues which your vehicle is presenting, addressing the problem right away can save you money and major headaches down the road.

If you have any questions about your Check Engine or other dashboard lights, don’t hesitate to contact us at Beech Motorworks! We are here to help!

A “thank you” from one of our clients

Posted on 05/23/2013

While we always pride ourselves on providing the best service imaginable, it is always great to see first-hand when our service impresses a new client. This afternoon we received a lovely Thank You card from a recent client.

It read:

Dear Sir/Madam

You should know about one of your young men who kindly took a few minutes of his day to help me with what I considered an emergency on May 22 afternoon.

I was on the west mountain (my home is in east Hamilton) and stopped to gas up. When I unscrewed the gas cap, the wider side separated into 2 plastic parts and a metal spring. I quickly filled up and fit the plastic pieces back together and noticed then that I had a third part (the spring). I didn’t know how it fit into the puzzle. I felt uneasy driving after that and remembered “Beech” on Upper James because my aunt used to take her car there for servicing and spoke well of your establishment.

I explained the situation to the young lady at the first reception desk and she sought out one of your employees to take a look. I didn’t take note of his name but he’ll know who he is. He undid the temporary assembly that I had done, inserted the spring and put the cap back in the proper order.

I offered to pay him but he refused payment. Please tell him he made my day. The experience will stay with me and make me smile whenever I think of it.

God Bless!
