Art’s Automotive Articles

We publish a lot of original content here at Art’s Automotive. Some of our pages contain information for our customers: how we operate as a shop, and automotive information we think our customers will find useful.  This gives potential customers a chance to see if they like our flavor. We also write on technical topics aimed at do-it-yourselfers, other mechanics, and curious customers.

Picture of hand, pen, and paper with writing: "It was a dark and stormy night. The lines in Art's face were accentuated by the orange glow from the dash cluster where the check engine light shone brightly."

Web Articles

We’ve written so many articles over the years that it started to get hard to find them on the site. The following links will take you to tables that are sorted by the year written (newest first). You can also search for an article within the table by using the search box at the top of the table. Happy hunting!
