Airbags in Pascagoula

After they’ve had an accident, some people in Pascagoula wonder why their airbags didn’t go off. Movies and television lead us to believe that airbags go off with the slightest bump. The reality is much more complicated. First, airbags come out with great force and speed.

Cooling System Service at Clark’s Professional Car Care in Pascagoula

Pascagoula drivers often ask questions about the cooling system, the system that cools your vehicle engine and keeps it at the proper operating temperature.

Different makes of vehicles require different coolant formulation to protect against corrosion. Finally, your coolant needs to be fresh. Over time and miles of driving, the anti-corrosion additives in the coolant are depleted, and the coolant can actually start to eat away at the vehicle’s cooling system parts. Your owner’s manual and your Clark’s Professional Car Care service advisor can help you with the recommended coolant repla ... read more

But how well have they been maintained? If you plan on owning a car for a long time, you’ll keep up on the maintenance so that you can avoid expensive repairs down the road. But, if you know you’re only going to have the vehicle for two or three years, you may not be so committed to maintenance.
