Newell's Automotive Center
Based on several different visits to Newell's over the years, I have to say that Mark, the owner, has treated me as fairly as anyone I've ever seen. Recently I was told by another auto shop that I needed about $1,250 in repairs done to my car (which is probably about the total blue book value of my entire vehicle). I took it to Newell's to have the same service done for $920, which is a savings of well over $300. However, once they got my car up on the rack, they called me and told me that those repairs were NOT needed. Mark could have just gone ahead and done the work, making a quick and easy profit on repairs to my car. However, he was honest with me, and it cost him that profit. But HONESTY and INTEGRITY seem to be the order of the day at Newell's Automotive. To all who might read this review, allow me ask you a question: When is the last time an auto shop was perfectly honest with you, even when it cost them significant revenue? Well, Newell's did just that, and I won't soon forget it. This is rare in the auto repair business, but Newell's has treated me right from day one. They have earned my trust.

Bob Ts Auto Service
This service shop and owner are awesome! When driving from Texas to Kansas on Christmas Eve, our truck engine started to misfire badly. Knowing it was probably a spark plug issue, we began looking for a repair shop in Ardmore to help us. Not many places were open on Christmas Eve. Found one, Clark's Derby, who said they could do it but had to go to lunch first and would be back in two hours. Seriously?!? Started calling around and reached Bob T's. Bob, the owner, told us he was just shutting down to join his family for Christmas Eve, but told us to come in anyway. He was able to fix the problem fairly quickly and had a great attitude. He could have charged an arm and a leg since we were between a rock and a hard place trying to get to Kansas on Christmas Eve, but he priced his service fairly. He even directed us to a nice neighborhood diner where we could eat while he did the work. Can't say enough about Bob T's. Great guy - great work!
Tips & Advices
For gas-powered lawnmowers, the primary reasons for a failure to start are lack of gas, water in the fuel system, broken or faulty spark plug, and engine seizure. For electric mowers, check to make sure the mower is plugged in and that the cord itself is not damaged.
When a lawn mower issue arises, it generally results in the either the mower’s inability to start or its inability to cut properly. The most common causes of these issues include:
  • Clogged air filter
  • Flooded engine
  • Dead spark plug
  • Overfilling of oil
  • Dull cutting blade
  • A dirty undercarriage
  • Gasoline or oil that is too old and has gone stale
  • Overheated engine
Reel mowers are those without engines that use a series of vertically spinning blades to slice the grass, much like a pair of scissors would. These mowers are typically smaller and are pushed manually by an operator. But larger reel mowers can be towed behind tractors or multipurpose vehicles, which is how most golf course lawns are maintained. These mowers make shallow cuts and disperse the clippings broadly back over the lawn. This is known as grasscycling. a form of self-fertilizing, and is generally considered to be good for the grass’ health and longevity. Rotary mowers generally have a single blade that spins horizontally and is powered by a small gas or electric engine. These mowers can be adjusted to cut thick or shallow grass and disperse the clippings neatly to one side, greatly easing the process of clean up. Rotary mowers can be pushed manually, ridden by a driver, or towed behind tractors and multipurpose vehicles.
  • Clean blades and the undercarriage of clippings and dirt at least once per year to prevent rusting
  • Change oil, air filter, and spark plug once every one to two  years
  • If the mower is being stored for a long period of time, such as during the winter, drain the remaining gas and oil
Lawn mower spark plugs should be changed every one to two  years.
