Change it if you want to keep it!


Nobody - I mean nobody wants a high repair bill.  Ever!  So why ignore the easy things like filters and fluids?  Here at Geralds Auto Center, LLC our St. Jonesboro drivers know that their car and truck’s filters are important to the longevity of that vehicle as well as the interior comfort. Maximize your car investment by replacing filters regularly.  The oil filter traps contaminants, allowing the oil to flow through the engine unrestricted. The fuel filter separates harmful contaminants that may cause problems with carburetors or intricate fuel injectors. The air filter traps dirt particles, which can cause damage to engine cylinders, walls, pistons and piston rings. The air filter also plays a role in keeping contaminants off the airflow sensor (in fuel-injected cars). The cabin filter helps trap pollen, bacteria and dust that may find their way into a car’s ventilation system.  Keeping the filters and fluids changed regularly is simply a win-win solution!

These routine maintenance suggestions will keep you safe on the road.


Every vehicle - whether new or old - must receive regular maintenance to keep running at peak performance. Check to see if your vehicle may be over-due for a 3,500-mile, 7,500-mile, 15,000-mile, 30,000-mile, 60,000-mile or 90,000-mile service. Geralds Auto Center, LLC in St. Jonesboro would like to share with you the following suggested guidleines for routine maintenance. If you have any questions, or would like us to give you a hand, call or come by Geralds Auto Center, LLC today.

WARNING - Light is on, what do you do?


A light on the dash that doesn't say - washer fluid is low immediately panics you right?  It can happen when you don't keep up with standard maintenance and with older vehicles you see it due to the age of the vehicle, however here at Geralds Auto Center, LLC in St. Jonesboro we like to keep you driving happy and listening to your favorite songs or talking to friends and family worry-free!  Here are some quick tips and hard lines in the sand that you do not need to ignore.

FIRST TIP:  Do not ignore a warning light.  However, first line of defense is to stop the vehicle as soon as it is safe and then turn the engine off - wait a few minutes then turn it back on.  If the light is still there - get your manual out to see what the light means (or Google it).
