Battery Trouble

One of the necessary components of starting any vehicle in Jersey Shore is a surefire, strong electrical connection, or spark. This spark - helping electrify and kickstart your engine into motion - comes directly from the battery. It's your responsibility as a driver to ensure your battery is healthy and strong enough to start your vehicle without fail.

As we service your battery and seek to uncover what electrical issues lie dormant underneath your hood, we'll make sure to rewire and strengthen any frayed wires using OEM-manufactured parts and products. We go the extra mile to take precaution when working on any battery to avoid the common mishaps of electrical failure on the roads in Jersey Shore.

Service FAQ

No matter what kind of vehicle you drive, your engine can be invaded by a small army of uninvited guests. We're talking about unpleasant intruders like dust, dirt and grime that can find their way into your engine. Those unsavory characters can threaten your engine’s integrity and shorten its life. An oil change flushes those bad actors out of your engine and replaces old motor oil with fresh new lubrication. Your engine gets a new lease on life.

In the past, conventional wisdom said that you should get an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. But that was based on conventional motor oil. With today's advanced synthetic motor oils, your Chevy or Buick can last as long as 7,500 to 10,000 miles between oil changes. If you drive in dusty conditions anywhere around State College or Williamsport, PA, you might need an oil change more often. Ask us about the right intervals for your car.

For best results, we believe you should get a tire rotation with every oil change. If you have a front-wheel drive vehicle, the front tires get extra wear because they sit under the weight of your engine and they have to manage all the drivetrain forces. That’s why they wear out faster than the back tires. By allowing us to reposition your tires in a regular pattern, you help all your tires wear more evenly and last quite a bit longer.

A wheel alignment will correct the angle of your tires so that they move forward in a straight path. It will also help make sure your tires contact the road in just the right way. If your vehicle pulls to one side, your tires will wear out more quickly and it can even cause Bellefonte and Jersey Shore PA drivers to move in a crooked manner when you're trying to drive straight. An alignment keeps you safer and helps your tires last longer.

Brake pads have a mechanism built in that can tell you when they're getting low. A metal indicator has been put in place so that, when your pads have only about a 10 - 15% life left, you'll hear a high-pitched squeak. So when you step on your brake pedal and hear your tires squeaking, that’s a sign that your brake pads need to be replaced. If you replace your pads soon enough, we can avoid having to replace your more expensive rotors.

Absolutely! We can do a load test and make sure your battery has enough power to start your car regardless of the weather. If your battery is in danger of wearing out and leaving you stranded, we have a variety of great batteries in stock and we'll be happy to install one for you. Contact us any time to get your questions answered and schedule service soon at MacIntyre Chevrolet Buick in Lock Haven PA.
