A New Battery in FORT WORTH

A New Battery in FORT WORTH

Hello FORT WORTH drivers, let's talk about batteries. Car batteries are just like any rechargeable battery. They will eventually wear out and die. If you are shopping for a new battery in FORT WORTH, here's some auto advice to help you.There are two measurements to consider when purchasing a new battery: cold cranking amps and reserve capacity.

Engine Air Filter from Multistate Transmissions

Many FORT WORTH drivers have found themselves in the following situation: They go to get their oil changed and their friendly service advisor at Multistate Transmissions recommends a new engine air filter.

Of course, your Multistate Transmissions service advisor will know the proper coolant for your vehicle.Brake fluid is confusing for some FORT WORTH drivers. Back when we opened Multistate Transmissions, most vehicles used Dot 3 brake fluid. Now we have Dot 4 and Dot 5. Some FORT WORTH residents mistakenly think the higher numbers are an upgrade.
