Battery Replacement

Battery Replacement

Should I replace my Battery Yes or No, Batteries age over time and do have a specific lifespan. Even the best of batteries will gradually deteriorate till at some point they won't start your vehicle. Guessing when that is can be difficult to determine, but conditions that can deteriorate how long a vehicle battery last are cars being driven mostly on short trips, high under hood temperatures, extreme cold conditions, vibration, and overcharging. So how do you tell if your vehicle's battery is getting weak? There isn't any exact science to predict battery weakness other than testing it with an approved battery tester. There are a few things though you might notice to indicate a weak battery. Issues with the vehicle cranking over slower or the headlights dimming at idling are a couple of those indicators that could mean you should start looking for a new battery. What we here at Zimmerman's Auto ... read more

Oil Change Experts

Oil Change Experts

Oil Change Intervals, How Long should I go? For many years the recommended oil change interval was every 3,000 miles. In the last so many years, vehicle manufacturers have stretched the oil change interval to 7,500 miles or even higher. Oil Technology has indeed progressed and while many of the oil products are capable of lasting the extra miles between oil changes there have been some problems. It seems for some automakers the recommended extended oil change interval is a bit optimistic! We here at Zimmerman's Automotive, your Mechanicsburg Oil Change Facility, recommend still keeping your oil change interval at no longer than 5,000 miles. Why? As part of our oil change procedure we pre-check your oil level prior to performing your oil change. Our experience with doing pre-service oil level checks has shown us that 80-90% of the vehicles are at least 1 quart low of the proper level. Those customers who choose to extend their oil change interval be ... read more
