• Engine Hydration for Camarillo Drivers: Role of Your Water Pump

    Tuesday 17 April 2018

    The cooling system in an engine has five components: the radiator, the radiator cap, the hoses, the thermostat and the water pump. The water is literally the heart of the system. Just as your own heart keeps your blood circulating through your body, the water pump keeps coolant circulating through your engine.The water pump is driven by a belt, chain or gear and only operates while the engine is running. It has a limited life span and sooner or later will have to be replaced. Yo... read more

  • To Fix or Not To Fix: That Is the Question.

    Wednesday 11 April 2018

    No matter what vehicle you drive, when certain things break, you have to make a decision.  Should I get it fixed now, later or never?  Air conditioning is one of those things.  You can certainly live without air conditioning, but it sure is nice to have on a sweltering day. Let's say your air conditioning breaks in the fall and you live in a climate where it gets quite cold in the winter.  Should you get it fixed now, wait until spring since it won't get warm until then or ma... read more

    We've all seen drivers do crazy things while driving to or from Camarillo. A guy shaving in the rear-view mirror, a woman applying makeup, people talking on their phones, texting or drinking from an enormous coffee mug. It's a wonder we even dare drive on California roads.The truth is that all of us are distracted when we drive. Unfortunately, traffic, road construction and other external factors are beyond our control. The distractions inside our car, however, are things we can often control.He... read more

  • It's About Time: Following Service Intervals at Camarillo Car Care Center

    Monday 26 March 2018

We should go to our Camarillo dentist twice a year and see our doctor for a check-up once a year.

Camarillo drivers should take th... read more

  • Automotive Tips from Camarillo Car Care Center: Wiper Blades ? Signs of Wear
