Fuel Saving Tip: Slow Down in Daytona Beach

There’s not much Daytona Beach drivers can do about the price of gas in ?FL, but we can control - up to a point - how much we use. Our driving habits can dramatically affect our fuel economy. The first thing we can do is watch the go-pedal. Hard acceleration just sucks the gas. Gently leave stop lights and plan lane changes so you don’t need to floor it. That can save you hundreds of dollars a year in improved gas mileage. Go a little slower on FL expressways. Daytona Beach drivers who go more than 65 miles an hour (105 kilometers per hour) will see their gas mileage drop dramatically. Leave early so you don’t need to rush to be on time. And cruise control is your friend – steady speeds use less gas. Plan errands ahead. Make fewer trips by combining errands around Daytona Beach. Hey at current Daytona Beach gas prices, a lead-foot might as well be a gold foot. Give us a call Honest-1 Auto Care 2325 S Ridgewood Ave Daytona Beach, FL 32119 ... read more

Positive Crankcase Ventilation ? PCV Valve Service at Honest-1 Auto Care

Hello Daytona Beach! Did you know that the first federally-mandated emissions control device was introduced in the 1960's? The Positive Crankcase Ventilation valve, or PCV valve, has been installed in FL vehicles since 1964 and represents the first legislation by the United States government to regulate harmful emissions as well as to improve performance in the country's vehicles.The PCV valve, as you can probably guess, is located on the crankcase.

This causes the crankshaft to rotate, which sends power to the transmission.  It ultimately turns the axles and causes the vehicle to move. Some of the gases released by the burning fuel squeeze around the pistons and down into the crankcase.If the escaped gases mix with the engine oil ... read more

Automotive Tips from Honest-1 Auto Care: Timing Belt Overview

In your engine, valves over each combustion chamber open to allow fresh air in, close during the combustion event, and then other valves open to let out the exhaust. All of this happens over and over thousands of times a minute when you are driving around Daytona Beach. The timing belt’s important job is to make sure that all of this happens as it should – at precisely the right time. If the timing is off, your engine won’t run efficiently or maybe not at all – so a good timing belt is important. If it should break, you could end up at Honest-1 Auto Care with expensive engine damage.Ask your friendly and professional Honest-1 Auto Care service advisor when your timing belt is scheduled for replacement.Give us a call.Honest-1 Auto Care2325 S Ridgewood AveDaytona Beach, FL 3211938
