Barrow's Auto Service
Paul, with Barrow's Auto & Wrecker Service, deserves our praise and acknowledgement! We can truly testify that he was an angel helping our family. We are from the St. Louis area and were traveling back from New Orleans on Sunday (yesterday) on a tight timeline. We just happened to stop in Grenada, Mississippi for gas when we noticed our suburban was leaking fluids and the engine was smoking. Before I could stress about our situation, a gentleman in a suit named Larry, stopped out of nowhere to assist (another guardian angel). He diagnosed that the water pump was bad. Being that it was Sunday on a holiday weekend, I was certain that we were stranded for at least another day. However, Larry called Paul,with Barrow Auto & Wrecker Service, and Paul graciously agreed to come into the shop on a Sunday to install a new water pump. After 2 to 3 hours of fellowship and Paul's hard work we were back on the road to St. Louis. Many people have been in similar situations, which resulted in horrifying results. At Barrow's, the sign out front states, "As for me and my shop; we will serve the Lord Jesus", which is some of the wording taken from Joshua 24:15. I can say that Paul epitomizes the term of loving your neighbor first. Words cannot express the gratitude owed to Paul and Larry! I can say that our bad situation turned into a humbling blessing for our family! We give God the glory for sending us these two angels and are forever grateful to them for their obedience!
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
