Jeffrey's Automotive State Inspection October 2013

Check your vehicle’s inspection sticker date. If the dates resemble the image above, it’s time for your vehicle’s state inspection – if you live in Fort Worth, Keller, Watauga, North Richland Hills and surrounding areas of NE Tarrant County, let us get your vehicle inspected and back on the road!

If you’re check engine light is on, your vehicle cannot pass state inspection. So come on in and let us take a look, find the codes, and get it repaired. Sometimes it may just be a small thing! And you don’t want to be pulled over in your kid’s school zone because of an outdated state inspection (imagine the embarrassment your teenager would feel!)

So remember, inspection due = October 2013!

“I only trust Jeffry’s [sic] with my car because they are a Christian-based family run facility who’s dependability, reliability and outstanding people-oriented skills have earned my trust.”

Love this quote from a recent customer, Maria Nieto, who gave us not one, but TWO reviews about your recent experience in our car repair shop.  We are thankful for the time our happy customers take to review Jeffrey’s Automotive.  It helps other customers in Keller, North Richland Hills, Watauga, Haltom City or the greater Fort Worth area find a trustworthy mechanic.

Certainly we understand our customer’s questions about their vehicles – it’s a complicated machine that gets us from point A to point B, but who really knows how it works?  Well, at Jeffrey’s, our customers come from all over the Fort Worth area and one of the most common questions has to do with their alignment.

Fort Worth customer appreciates Christian values of mechanic

Fort Worth customer, Helder Oliveira, gave us a 5-star review on Google this week.  Here’s what he shared:

“Went to Jeffrey’s for the State Inspection, I was surprised by how helpful they were. They went out of their way to make me feel important. While waiting for the sticker I relaxed in their sitting room listening to Christian music. Great atmosphere, super friendly place. Five stars! Way to go!” [see Mr. Oliveira's review of Jeffrey's Automotive on Google]

This reminds me of what Lucia Najera said in her recent Google review:

“As a woman with very limited automotive knowledge it is very important for me to feel comfortable trusting the place I take my car and Jeffrey´s provides that not only for their very professional service but also for the ownership Christian values they practice in and out of the business. I highly recommend them!”  [see Ms. Najera's review of Jeffrey's Automotive on Google]

Ron Bennett added similar thoughts back in August of 2013:

“Good to do business with a Christian family organization!”

Battery: How to Jump Start a Car - Jeffrey's Automotive - Fort Worth

Whether it’s because you left the lights on, the keys in the ignition, or your battery is old, most car owners will be faced with a dead battery sooner or later (it is probably something you want to explain to young drivers, t00).  The good news is that if there is another functional car nearby, you can jump start the car and be on the road again soon.  Remember that batteries are not always in the same place. Some vehicles have the battery under the hood, some behind the cab, and some are even in the trunk.

Follow these steps in order:

    1. Pull the car with the good battery next to the vehicle with the dead battery, or in a place where the cables will easily reach from the battery of one car to the battery of the other. The cars should not be touching and both ignitions should be shut off. Prop open the hood of each vehicle.
    2. Visibly locate the batteries and their terminals. Each battery has two metal terminals. One is marked Positive (+) the other Negative (-). There are also positive and negative cables in the jumper set. The red one is positive, the black one is negative.
    3. Connect one red clamp to the positive (+) terminal of the dead battery.
    4. Connect the other red clamp to the positive (+) terminal of the good battery.
    5. Connect one black clamp to the negative (-) terminal of the good battery.
    6. Connect the other black clamp to the engine block or another metal surface of the vehicle away from the battery. (NOTE: you may see a small spark when you connect to a good ground.). As a last resort, you may connect to the negative (-) post of the dead battery, but this risks igniting hydrogen gas coming off the battery.
    7. Make sure none of the cables are dangling into the engine compartment, where they could be exposed to moving parts.
    8. Start the car providing the jump start.  Wait a moment, then try to start the car with the dead battery.  Once the car starts, leave it idling for 5 or 10 minutes.
    9. If it does not start, wait a few moments and try again.  If it still does not start, you may need come and see us about a new battery. Or your battery’s cable connections could have corrosion, if so, you will need to clean them. Every time a battery is discharged and needs to be jumped, it weakens the battery. After a few jumpstarts, you may want to consider buying a new battery.  At Jeffrey’s, we do sell batteries and would be happy to help you get a new one for your car or truck.
    10. Now remove cables in the reverse order that you put them on.

Congratulations, you now know how to jump start a battery!
