How to Take Care of the Automotive Fuel Pump

Fuel pump is vital to the operation of your vehicle. Without it your vehicle would go nowhere (unless you drive an electric car). Signs of a malfunctioning fuel pump are hard to miss – loss of power, problems accelerating. If it fails altogether, the car simply will not run and fuel pump replacement will become a necessity. Fortunately, taking good care of the fuel pump is pretty simple. All you have to do is to keep the fuel tank at least 1/3 full at all times. That’s it? Yes.

But what does that have to do with the health of the fuel pump? Well, most ... read more

Get Your Vehicle Ready for the Rains

As we entered the fall season, evening chill reminds us that rains will soon be upon us. Last winter was unusually wet, but even a regular winter means that your vehicle needs to be ready for rains and storms. At Toole’s Garage Stockton we recommend having you vehicle checked out well before the winter rains start. Here are a few components that should be looked at: Windshield Wipers We don’t think of them in the summer, while the UV rays damage the wipers. Only when the first storm hits, we face the moment of truth – hopefully they hold up, but it’s best to check them before the rain. Lights As the Fall and Winter days get shorter, it’s important that all lights be in good working order.
