See What We Do!
According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
Really great experience. My transmission blew up the other day & the closest place is Dorsey transmission. I went and spoke to Jack and he was just amazing. He was kind and very resourceful. I was very pleased! Also spoke to his shop foreman Rick was very helpful on what was going to take place had transmission repaired and was very satisfied.
I've been dealing with Jack for over 20 years from a simple oil change to replacing a heater core Its nice to have a mechanic that doesn't try to sell you something you don't need. My vehicle is older so Jack watches the mileage and lets me know what needs to done and when . It's a nice experience to deal with Jack. I have referred several co-workers to Jacks shop and they have all told me they would use him again. I would highly recommend Jack and Dorsey Transmissions great people and excellent service.
Had my clutch swapped here. They did a great job and at a good price. Their customer service is also awesome.
The only place I'll take my cars in Maryland. Customer service is great and the work is just as good. They have helped my family in multiple situations and have a good sense of humor about our terrible car luck.
I've been using dorsey for about 4 years now. They've always been honest and upfront. I've had them service German and Japanese autos. Top notch. If they can't do the work they'll tell you instead of ripping you off. These guys are great
Worked with Rick - he is very helpful and takes pride in his work. With the professionalism and service I received, I will most certainly be back! I thought the prices were reasonable as well.
