  • Benefits of Treating a Fuel System

    Like anything else on your vehicle, keeping various systems clean and in good shape is essential to long life and reliability. Your fuel system is especially important - parts are expensive, problems can be difficult to diagnose, and it doesn’t take much contamination to cause a huge issue. It’s much easier to keep your fuel system clean than it is to clean a dirty or problematic system. Performing regular fuel treatment can prove very beneficial to the life of your vehicle.

  • Brakes - Putting a Stop to Your Diesel

  • Diesel Engines - Power Comes From Their Differences

    On gas engines, the fuel delivery system is pretty simple - an electric pump draws gas from the tank, and pushes it to the injectors. Diesel systems are a little more complex.

    The exhaust on your truck is an important series of components, that work together to insure smooth, reliable operation. At Nick's Auto Service in Anderson, IN, we also know that exhaust systems are especially susceptible to damage and rust; pipes, mufflers, and other parts are exposed to hazards on the road, and to the environment. This situation, combined with caustic emissions and extreme heat, create a perfect opportunity for problems to arise.

  • Have You Changed Your Oil Lately?

  • How Is Your Battery Life?

    Battery

    At Nick's Auto Service in Anderson, we understand how vital solid battery power is to a truck driver. A dead or weak battery isn’t a big deal in a passenger vehicle; in a commercial truck, missed deadlines, incomplete jobs, insufficient equipment, and inconvenient situations are all consequences of a less than adequate battery.
