What is a Pre-Purchase Car Inspection?

Buying a used car from another person can often times be uncertain. While the seller may express that the vehicle is in great condition, it is difficult to truly tell the condition just by looking at it. There could be a small issue growing within the engine that may cost you an engine replacement in the near future, an expense that you weren't planning for. This is why a pre-purchase inspection in Waco TX is so important.  What is a pre-purchase car inspection? A pre-purchase inspection is when you bring the used vehicle into our shop for an evaluation. We perform a multi-point vehicle inspection and test multiple components for basic function and condition of parts. We put together a report for you which will include the condition of all major parts and will outline what repairs or services we feel that the vehicle will need in the near future.  When you understand what services or repairs the used car will need shortly after you purchase it, you'll be able to not ... read more

What is a Collapsed Car Hose?

Your vehicle has many different hoses working throughout to ensure that fluids are properly pressurized and circulated. When a hose collapses, this is usually a reference to the radiator hose. A collapsed hose basically means that it appears to have sunken or caved in.  A radiator hose can collapse for a number of different reasons. A faulty radiator cap is one culprit. If the radiator cap is not releasing pressure, it can cause a vacuum to develop which can lead to the collapse of the radiator hose. Another potential problem is a blocked overflow hose, which can also create a vacuum due to a clog somewhere in the system.  The overall condition of the hose plays a part too, because a new hose won't necessarily be affected by a create vacuum. It is older and more fragile hoses that will be affected, which will need to be replaced.  Some hoses also have wire reinforcement woven into rubber of the body of your car, and if that reinforcement wire is faulty, this ... read more
