fleet of vehicles

If you own or operate a fleet or commercial truck, there’s a lot that factors into having a major repair done on one of your vehicles. At Kevin's Auto Repair in Huntsville, AL, we’re here to help you make the right choice.

Your car’s radio and headlights, plus a slew of other important functions, are powered by an electrical current generated by your vehicle’s engine. A vital part of generating electricity is having a place to store it while it’s not being used. This is where your car battery comes into play. The battery of your vehicle holds electrical energy while the car is off in order to help the engine turn over and create a spark to start internal combustion. Without a working battery, your car will not be able to start. If you allow our team here at Kevin's Auto Repair to perform proper maintenance, an average car battery can start your car reliably for roughly four years.

At Kevin's Auto Repair in Huntsville, AL, we understand that maintenance is the difference between a truck that makes it to the million-mile mark and a truck that doesn’t come close. Here are some tips to keep your truck in shape for many miles to come.

Are your fleet vehicles equipped with four-wheel or all-wheel drive? More and more, companies are moving towards vehicles equipped with one or the other - they’re safer and more useful, particularly in inclement weather or less than ideal conditions. If your fleet is powered by all four wheels, Kevin's Auto Repair in Huntsville, AL has you covered.

checking your a/c coolant

Your vehicle's cooling system is one of the most important systems in your vehicle. Inside your engine, spark plugs ignite the fuel within the cylinders to produce small explosions that propel your vehicle down the road. With small explosions comes scorching temperatures that can destroy your engine if not controlled. There are two types of cooling systems - liquid-cooled and air-cooled. 

Nobody knows your vehicle better than you; if you suspect it isn’t driving the way it used to, there’s a good chance you’re correct. The truth of the matter is there are countless reasons and remedies for such a broad subject, but Kevin's Auto Repair in Huntsville, AL has compiled a list of a few common problems that can cause a vehicle to drive poorly.

While it might sound counterintuitive, the best way to reduce maintenance costs is to stick to a prescribed maintenance schedule.
