Tips & Advice

Your tires should be rotated every other oil change, or every 6000 miles. Neglecting to rotate tires is a major cause of premature tire wear.

The failure of a timing belt in many cars can result in major engine damage. The cost of repairing an engine with a broken timing belt is much greater than the cost of a timing belt replacement.

There are many sensors and computerized components that manage your vehicle's engine performance and emissions. When one of these fails, the "check engine" light is illuminated. Although your car may seem to run fine, it is important to have the issue addressed to prevent long-term problems.

This is a very serious problem if your car overheats for too long, you can damage your engine. As soon as possible, find a safe place to pull off the road and shut the engine off! Do not attempt to check the fluid level in the radiator as it can burn you. The best thing to do is have your car towed to a repair shop.

You should get your oil changed every 3000 miles or every 3-4 months.

  • "I always feel confident with the recommendations and work I receive from the mechanics at Shawnee. I especially enjoy talking with Roger. He is gracious, funny, and an interesting man. I always learn something new from him. Besides, he drives me to my work nearby and when I lose track of time, he calls to remind me it's time to quit and pick up my car!!"

  • "Everyone was extremely helpful and worked toward the best, most cost-efficient solution to a problem I was having with the rear lift-gate on a Chevy Tahoe. I have been bringing my cars to Shawnee for many years, but I'm especially glad that I came to them this time, versus going to the Chevy dealership for service."

  • "Best auto service shop anywhere. Honest, professional, no up-selling, no B.S. They may charge $10 more for an oil change than the guy down the street, but they've saved me hundreds on a few major things. If I ever moved to Florida or Arizona, I'd bring the car back here for service."

    by PAUL MURPHY on 2017-02-05
  • "They are thorough, polite, let me know what I need and an estimate, and can bring me to/from work which is about a mile away. Very nice staff, very satisfactory work!!"
