  • Powertrain vs. Bumper-to-Bumper Warranties: Protect Your Vehicle

    Dealerships offer all different types of warranties. Used and new vehicles may come with different warranties as well. Powertrain warranties cover some of the most expensive parts of the engine and transmission. However, they do not cover electronics or drivetrain components. Powertrain warranties typically last longer than most other warranties because they're meant to replace any of the essential components of the vehicle.

    Bumper-to-bumper coverage is comprehensive coverage that includes electronics, audio, drivetrain, and air conditioning.

  • Your Engine Relies on Essential Fluid to Prevent Overheating

    As you’re driving through Ellisville, MO, you’re probably not giving much thought about your engine overheating. However, if you consider all the miles that are driven on a daily basis, the engine has to endure a lot! The temperature in an engine can reach as much as 2,000 degrees and needs to be cooled down.

    The coolant system for your engine heavily relies on antifreeze to keep it from overheating. The antifreeze is filled in the radiator, and if a leak occurs, there is a good chance that your engine will overheat. Additionally, the radiator hoses need to be checked periodically to prevent...
