How to Prevent Car Fires

Car fires are an occurrence that luckily is very rate, but can be deadly. You may be familiar with a car bursting into flames after an accident, but cars can also catch fire due to mechanic or electrical issues. While we know this can be a scary thought, being prepared and knowing how to prevent fires from happening is the best way you can avoid these types of situations.  If you smell gasoline or see a puddle underneath your vehicle that you think may be gas, don't take the situation lightly. Do not drive your vehicle with a gas leak and make sure that your car isn't anywhere near a flame. We recommend a tow to Nerger's Auto Express to address the leak quickly and safely. When a car has a fuel leak and you continue driving, the fuel can drop onto a hot engine or exhaust and can ignite a fire.  Knowing gas station safety can also help avoid car fires at the gas pump. Always ensure that your vehicle's engine is turned all the way off before pumping gas. Also ... read more

The Importance of Fall Car Care

October is Fall Car Care Month, and although it has come to end, fall car care doesn't stop here. October Fall Car Care Month was created to remind vehicle owners about proper preventative maintenance for your vehicle. October and November are weather changing months, which is the perfect time to get your vehicle in shape for Winter driving and holiday road trips. The Car Care Council reminds car owners during the fall season not to ignore issues with your vehicle and to have your car inspected before going on any road trips or long drives.  Winter can bring lots of rain, ice, and snow, so it is important to check your vehicle’s tires, brakes and windshield wipers to ensure that your car is prepared for the rainy weather. Bald tires can cause your vehicle to lose traction on the road in wet weather conditions. Getting stuck in rainy weather with windshield wipers that aren’t working properly can be extremely dangerous. Windshield wipers need to be r ... read more

Do Modern Vehicles Need to Be "Warmed Up"?

If you've been on the road for years, you've probably heard someone mention that a vehicle needs to be warmed up in the colder weather in order to start up. You get into your car, turn it on, and let the engine run for a few minutes before setting off. You've only heard it from friends and family, but is it actually necessary? The answer depends on the age of your vehicle, as well as make and model. The concept of warming up your vehicle in the winter or fall dates back to cars that were built with carburetors. Carburetors haven't been built in vehicles since around the 1990s. So unless your vehicle is from the early 1990s or earlier, than the answer is no!  Modern vehicles use fuel-injection technology, complex computer systems and thinner synthetic oils so that drivers don’t need to warm up their cars before hitting the road. Idiling your vehicle before driving is actually bad for the environment, as it generates more pollution into the air ... read more



At Nerger's Auto Express we have one priority, and that is the safety of our customers. We know that sending your children off to college can be one of the most stressful and emotional times for a parent. However, with the winter months ahead, it is absolutely essential to make sure the vehicle your child is driving is the safest that it can be. At Nerger's we will perform a full evaluation on your child's vehicle to make sure there are no red flags. Some of the tests we will run include an inspection of tire treads, tire inflation, engine oil, power steering fluid, transmission fluid, brake fluid, brake functionality and light functionality. Although we want to make sure that your child's car is extremely safe before your children head off into the next phase of their lives, we also think it is essential that you teach them how to keep themselves safe when they are on their own.

Make sure you can see! When was the last time you replaced your windshield wipers? If it was more than a year ago, it's time for a new pair! The next important step is to check your windshield washer and make sure it is filled with the correct liquid. The last thing you need in the middle of a storm is to discover you are out! Get the Correct kind of Oil Change. Make sure you come in for your regular oil change and we will make sure you have the correct oil. Oil tends to thicken as it gets colder and if it is too thick it will not do the best job of keeping your engine lubricated. Get Your Antifreeze Right. The best mix is usually 50/50 antifreeze and water. This will ensure that nothing will freeze in your engine, even under the most extreme temperatures. Also look at when you last had your radiator flushed and cleaned – it might be time for it a ... read more





While technology has created ways for us to multi-task and make phone calls, dictate texts and update social media at any time and at any place, all of these actions have been proven to increase the risk of being involved in a car crash if done while driving. However, the concept of distracted driving is not just around technology. A person in the car can distract you, something that you are eating (and drops in your lap!) can distract you – anything that takes your eyes and concentration off the road in front of you is a distraction to be eliminated. The National Safety Council has many resources to share on the concept of distracted driving, from videos to posters all aimed at raising awareness in your workplace, at home and in the community a large. They invite you to come to their site and take advantage of all the education and awareness tools that they have available, beginning with "T ... read more
