With AAA, roadside assistance, and the decreasing ability of people to fix and maintain their own vehicles, there are a lot of people on the road today who don’t know how to change a tire. Removing your wheel and replacing it with your spare may seem like a daunting task, but with this guide from Autoworks in Ithaca, NY, you’ll have the knowledge you need when you find yourself in a bind.

The interval for the tire rotation could depend on a recommendation from either the tire manufacturer or the vehicle maker. The interval is typically around 5,000 miles but could range from 3,000 to 8,000 miles. So why do tires need to be rotated and how do you know when the right time is for your vehicle?

Glow Plugs are an essential component of your diesel engine. However, a faulty glow plug can go unnoticed or be neglected for quite some time; your truck will still start and run, so it’s an easy issue to overlook. At Autoworks in Ithaca, NY, we want you to know what to look for, and why you should be concerned with a bad glow plug.

If you own or maintain a fleet of vehicles, you understand what a huge investment multiple vehicles can be, especially when dealing with semis and other commercial trucks. At Autoworks in Ithaca, NY, we’re here to help you protect that investment.

Thank you, John and George. My mother-in-law had a sudden emergency and we needed to get our car ready for an out-of-state trip in a hurry. You made it happen on a busy Friday, with great patience and sympathy. I have been bringing my vehicles to you for years - and I really appreciate that you were there for me today. - Willy

Automatic transmissions are the default now - with efficiency approaching or surpassing that of manual transmissions, and automatics with 8 or 10 electronically controlled gears, it’s no surprise they’ve gained so much popularity over the past few decades. But where did it all start? Autoworks in Ithaca, NY has the answers.
