With just three more days until Thanksgiving, I can't help but think about which auto repairs I am most thankful for this year. Since January 1st, I have had the distinct pleasure of replacing many, many auto parts, so let's do a quick review...
The SOHC Subaru Timing Belt and Water Pump - In the grand scheme of timing belts, the SOHC 2.5L Subaru engine was very easy to do. I love having one less major service haunting me.
Spark Plugs on the same Subaru - I replaced them because the car had over 100K miles, and I figured that they were needed. It turns out that they were way overdue. New plugs made a massive difference in smoothness.
Ignition coils on a Tundra - A friend's truck had a misfire from his factory coils that had 170K miles on them. Replacing them made a WORLD of difference.
Exhaust on a Camry - For whatever reason, the exhaust systems always rot out on the early 2000 era Camrys. With so much rust, it is not a fun repair at all, but very satisfying when the OBDII light goes out and does not come back!
I think the auto repair that I am most thankful for this year though is the burned valve in the Legacy GT. It was an extremely labor intensive job with the head gaskets, lifters and all, but I loved doing it because of how much I got to learn in such a short amount of time. I love a good challenge.
As you have probably guessed by now, many of the super awesome parts that I used during these repairs came from 1AAuto.com - SURPRISE! So, if you find yourself hunting for parts that you will undoubtedly be thankful for, we have them. Gobble your way over to our website tonight to see all that we have for your vehicle.
We Can All Be Thankful For Wheel Bearings Too!
Without wheel bearings, our vehicles would be nothing more than comfortable metal fishbowls to drink our coffee in. And as much as I enjoy coffee at all times of day and night, buying an expensive weather-sealed habitat strictly for my coffee drinking comfort is a bit much. So, in the interest of keeping the world moving, 1AAuto.com has all of the wheel bearings and hubs that you may need for your cars and trucks. We have a variety of brands, and all of them have FREE shipping. Considering that hubs are heavy chunks o' steel, that is a pretty awesome deal.
