Summer is Here!

Revving up for a road trip has never been easier

thanks to a few tips our ASE Certified Mechanics would like to share about achieving safe summer travel. While vehicles need maintenance year-round, driving long distances in high temperatures adds more strain to your vehicle.

Hot asphalt is tough on tires, and a faulty radiator won’t last long if tested under harsh conditions. So before you pack up the car and your friends and family to hit the road, take a short break, check a few vitals and make sure your ride is vacation-ready.

We are happy to be your one-stop-shop for quality vehicle repair, performance wheels & tires, and gas. Thank you.

Sierra Car Care / MST Tire Center

We would like to formally say goodbye to the name Mill Street Tire and say hello to MST Tire Center. They are one-in-the-same tire warehouse, but the name changed when the new owner’s Steve & Laurie Yarborough added the company to the Sierra Car Care service station family.

Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center are now serving the greater Reno-Sparks area with 5 full service auto repair and tire stores. This transition allowed for an opportunity to improve value and service to customers in the area.MST Tire Center

You may still see Mill Street Tire on the wall (on-location), the change is slow. The goal is to let you know the name has changed, but the same great service and workmanship are still here. So come on down and see us at MST Tire Center at 3180 Mill Street in Reno, NV.

All web related news, articles, e-blasts, posts, etc. will refer to MST Tire Center from now on. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us here.

Car Tune-up from Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center

Much like your body, your car needs a regular check up to keep it running smoothly and prevent big problems.

That’s the job of a tune-up.

Depending on the mileage and type of car, a tune-up generally includes replacing
a few small parts that don’t
cost much, but they wear down easily and lower your car’s performance. And these parts can cause very expensive damage when they’re worn.

Typical tune-ups include replacing spark plugs, fuel induction service, changing the air filter and fuel filter, as well as inspecting other system components for wear or damage.

If you’re not sure when your car needs a tune-up, check your owner’s manual for a schedule. Or call us for advice.

Like your health, it’s a lot less expensive and much easier to do a little preventative maintenance now, than pay to fix a bigger problem later.

Gas for goodnessShakespeare Animal Fund

Every Wednesday in March, we’ll make a donation for every gallon of gas sold from our Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Centers. And we’ll donate $1.00 per tire sold each Saturday at MST Tire Center on Mill Street. All donations in March will support the Shakespeare Animal Fund.

For many elderly and disabled their animals mean everything in the world to them, and when their animals become ill or injured they have no money for emergency veterinary care. That’s where Shakespeare Animal Fund steps in.

Founded in January 2004 in memory of a dog named Shakespeare, the organization’s mission statement is to stop the suffering of animals by paying emergency veterinary bills for elderly, disabled and other low income individuals. And to date the fund has paid out more than $275,000, most in the northern Nevada and northern California areas. A registered 501©(3), all donations are tax deductible.

So when you need gas or new tires, you can also support our local, Shakespeare Animal Fund by visiting any of our 5 locations on Wednesdays for gas and Saturdays for tires (Mill Street location only).

Auto mechanic checking car battery

If your vehicle’s electrical system seems to be haunted, turning devices on and off, or creating problems on start-up, you may need to speak to a professional.

The electrical system is powered by, and dependent on, the car battery and alternator. If the battery is not charged, or the alternator is not producing enough power, your vehicle and devices may not run properly or perform correctly.

What are some causes of electrical problems?

  • Insufficient battery charge (or defective battery)
  • Starter or alternator
  • Bad spark plug and/or wires
  • Blown fuses or bad sensors
  • Bad master control unit

Intermittent electrical issues are the most difficult to find and fix yourself. When a fuse “blows”, circuits lose their continuity and devices stop functioning. We can check any code using our advanced electrical diagnostic equipment. Save time and money by starting at the root of the problem.

Why service your electrical system?

  • May increase gas mileage
  • Ensures smooth running engine and inside components
  • More powerful performance

In many cases, early intervention can be the difference between a small problem $ and a big one $$$. Bring your vehicle into any of our Reno or Sparks locations for an electrical diagnostic check. Our fully qualified ASE Certified Technicians will do everything possible to keep your car running safely and efficiently.

SPECIAL OFFER: FREE BATTERY CHECK / TEST!
Check battery charge and inform you if battery is in good condition
or needs replacing. Offer Expires: February 28, 2013
Mention Coupon Code: TEST

When you donate to Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation, you join our cause to support children in our community. A gift of any size will greatly benefit a family whose child is undergoing cancer treatment or suffering late effects from treatment. When a child is stricken with cancer, the needs are great.

So when you need gas or new tires, you can also support our local, Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation by visiting any of our 5 locations on Wednesdays for gas and Saturdays for tires (Mill Street location only).
