Seat Belts

Seat Belts

It’s amazing to me that with all the technology and information out there, we still have people who will say “I’m safer if I’m thrown from my vehicle during an accident than if I’m trapped inside” and they won’t wear a seat belt. Now, I’m not a physics major and if you’re looking to see vehicles involved in accidents or you want to see car repair, Temple, TX or car repair, Belton, TX you can stop by the shop here at Eurotech Car Care but what I’d like you to imagine right now is riding around with an elephant in your back seat.

Why Oil Changes Are Important

Why Oil Changes Are Important

Our bodies use water to help lubricate our joints to allow movement within our limbs. What if I told you that for around $40 I could trade the available water in your body out every 3 months for new clean water that would help your body run easier? No brainer, right? That’s similar to what an oil change is like for your car. The oil is the lubrication that keeps everything moving and flowing through your car. It collects dirt and grime as it goes around and has to be replaced or your engine will start to pay the price. Your vehicle’s owner’s manual should state recommended oil change dates and mileage and if your vehicle does better with regular or synthetic oil. Your driving habits will determine what you should follow and you should discuss those with your automotive technician to set up a schedule that works for your habits. Cleaning the old oil out of your engine on a regular basis will help extend the life of your engine because all moving parts need ... read more
