  • Is it Time for a New Exhaust?

    exhaust

    Exhaust systems are one of the most neglected aspects of most vehicles. Exhaust pipes, catalytic converters, and mufflers are exposed to heat, emissions, and road damage. While your exhaust system is fairly simple and straightforward, these conditions mean it is inherently prone to rust and damage. As a result, this system is often one of the first systems you will have trouble with on your car.

  • Keeping Your Climate Control Cleaner, Quieter, and Lasting Longer

    If your car has climate control, then it also has a cabin filter. Cabin filters are simply air filters for the interior of your car, truck, or SUV. All air entering circulation through the climate control system first passes through this filter, to prevent your AC or heat systems from accumulating debris or blowing them out of your vents. The result is cleaner, quieter, and longer-lasting climate control systems, which keep the inside of your car as comfortable as possible. 

  • Let's Talk About Your Fuel Gauge

At Jeremiah's Automotive in Heath, OH, we like to provide information applicable to you. Running a vehicle low on fuel is something we’re all guilty of, and most of us don’t think twice about it. But, can it be bad for your car?

  • Make Your Vehicle Go The Extra Miles with Proper Maintenance

    At Jeremiah's Automotive in Heath, OH, we know the key to making your vehicle last; good maintenance. An overwhelming percentage of the problems we see, especially the really catastrophic ones, are a result of poor maintenance. While properly maintaining a vehicle can seem like a bit of a hassle, it is absolutely worth the payoff. Good maintenance is the only difference between a car that lasts 80,000 miles and a car that lasts 400,000 miles. Preventative maintenance and repair when a problem occurs are your two concerns, and both will keep your car on the road far longer if observed properly.

  • Noticing an Emergency on your Dashboard

    At Jeremiah's Automotive in Heath, OH, we have seen our fair share of preventable engine failures.

While some dash lights are fairly benign, others indicate imminent trouble. This guide from Jeremiah's Automotive in Heath, OH will prepare you for the next time your vehicle shows you a warning you shouldn’t ignore.

  • Properly Maintaining Your Battery

    Your car’s radio and headlights, plus a slew of other important functions, are powered by an electrical current generated by your vehicle’s engine. A vital part of generating electricity is having a place to store it while it’s not being used. This is where your car battery comes into play. The battery of your vehicle holds electrical energy while the car is off in order to help the engine turn over and create a spark to start internal combustion. Without a working battery, your car will not be able to start. If you allow our team here at Jeremiah's Automotive to perform proper maintenance, an average car battery can start your car reliably for roughly four years.

    At Jeremiah's Automotive in Heath, cars are our passion, so naturally, we like to keep up with new technology on the market.

However, the reality is that self-driving cars are on the way and maybe here sooner than you think. Already, almost all major automobile manufacturers are dumping billions of dollars into research and development for self-driving cars, and even companies like Uber are jumping on board.
