His shop handles many repairs, from tune ups to brakes and tires to maintenance light issues.

“Regular maintenance is key,” Jones said. “If you hear a problem, get it looked at.”

Regular maintenance includes having Jones check the car’s fluids, belts and tires for normal wear and replacing as needed.

“Tires are the only things that keep you connected to the road,” he said. “Most of the time, tires are underinflated. I’ve been a mechanic for 33 years and even I can’t tell by looking at them. You should always check using a tire pressure gauge,”

Jones said hot weather can also cause a lot of stress to car batteries.
