Vehicle Maintenance Videos by Honest-1 Auto Care: Tire Replacement Overview

Tires are a costly purchase so knowing when tires should be replaced is important for Daytona Beach auto owners. Tires will just wear out with normal use. The depth of the tread on your tire determines how well it will stop, start and steer – especially in wet conditions. 4/32th of an inch of tire tread is considered a safe amount of tread. Uneven tread wear can be a symptom of other problems and simply replacing your tires will not prevent the same uneven wear from happening to the new tires. We can survey your tires for excessive or uneven wear. Unusual wear may lead to further analysis of steering, suspension or alignment problems. We can help with needed repairs and with getting you the right tires for your needs. Give us a call Honest-1 Auto Care

Give Your Engine Clean Fuel With A New Fuel Filter From Honest-1 Auto Care

Give Your Engine Clean Fuel With A New Fuel Filter From Honest-1 Auto Care

Your pickup requires plenty of clean fuel to run. If your fuel contains contaminants, your fuel injectors will eventually become clogged up. When this happens, your pickup engine may not get the proper amount of fuel at the correct pressure to run at peak performance. This hurts fuel efficiency and performance as you drive around Daytona Beach. It can also lead to the buildup of harmful deposits on valves and in the combustion chamber. That’s why all vehicles, including pickups, come equipped with a fuel filter somewhere between the engine and the fuel tank. The job of the filter is to clean out little pieces of dirt and contamination. The filter captures the contaminants and keeps them out of the fuel stream. Of course, like all filters, it will eventually get clogged up and need to be replaced at Honest-1 Auto Ca ... read more

Vehicle Maintenance Videos by Honest-1 Auto Care: Serpentine Belt System Wear

The primary job of the serpentine belt is to provide vital traction to spin the accessories. As the belt wears it loses some of its grip and the accessories may not spin at best speeds. For example, if your alternator doesn’t spin fast enough, the battery will not completely recharge while you’re driving and you could end up stranded with a dead battery. In short, a worn serpentine belt will stress all of the accessories it powers leading to premature wear and possible early replacement. When as little as 5% of belt material is lost, the serpentine belt cannot provide the proper traction for the accessories. Your thoughtful Honest-1 Auto Care service specialist can survey your belt for excessive wear and replace your serpentine belt system if it’s excessively worn. Give us a call

Helping Daytona Beach Drivers Get the Right Tires

Helping Daytona Beach Drivers Get the Right Tires

Every Daytona Beach vehicle owner has to purchase tires at some time or another, so it’s a good idea to understand what the choices are. The best seasonal performance is achieved by purchasing tires to match the season you are driving in. Summer tires are designed for hot temperatures. The tread is engineered for good traction on dry or rainy FL roads. But the rubber compound in summer tires gets stiff when temperatures drop below 45°F, and snow and mud can pack into the tread, reducing the traction of the tire. Winter tires are designed for good traction on snowy surfaces. The tread actually throws snow off of the tire as the wheel turns. The rubber compound in a winter tire is soft so that it will remain flexible at Daytona Beach temperatures below 45°F. At higher temperatures, however, the softer rubber wears down rapidly. All-season tires sacrifice some of the extreme performance of summer or winter tires, but they maintain adequate traction in either type of Daytona Beach weathe ... read more
