We will be in next week for an oil change!
Town Hall is now preparing Welcome Kits for new families that are moving into our community.

Our Welcome Kits feature and direct these new families to a small number of local businesses for the goods, services & professionals that they need to find.

Since our Welcome Kits are exclusive, and we can only accommodate one Auto Repair Shop, I would ask you to kindly let me know if you are interested in being featured in our local Welcome Kits.

It is worthy to note that, according to Dr. Cathy Goodwin in her book “Making the Big Move”, 54% of new residents and families seek out a new Auto Repair Shop within 6 months of their relocation. As such, more than one-half of our Welcome Kit recipients are actively looking for a new mechanic.

I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail.

Please reply to this email with your availability or call me at your earliest convenience.

For a faster response, or if you prefer, feel free to text me on my cell which is listed in my signature.

Thanks.

Thanks again to you guys for taking great care of me!...and even writing up my order and getting my beast of a dog cold water after hours 😉. You can't find that kind of service just anywhere, for sure!
Thank you for fitting it in during my time of crisis AND being trustworthy on top of it!
You guys are ACES! 💋
I've had my car and truck worked on several times. The service is second to none. Always gets you in fast and you know that it will be serviced correctly. The pricing is very reasonable. Love this place. Honest hard working family business. Thanks for being there when we need you.
We are grateful for the generosity of Cyclone Car Care towards our church and those in need in our community this Christmas season! Thank you so much!
so you repair wipers as in motors and such
Amy McIntosh Trapp -- this is the place I told you about last night.
Love this place, only place I will take my cars. Trust Chris and his Dad fully!
For the last two years, we have brought all our vehicle work to Chris and his guys at Cyclone--and there was a lot of it on our two 10+ year-old vehicles. Chris's advice when we purchased a newer vehicle was invaluable...even though that advice meant less time spent at Cyclone. ☺️

We recommend Cyclone Car Care to all of our friends in the area. Want an honest mechanic who will also be a helpful resource? Here you are!
Had a low tire level indicator light go on-pulled in Cyclone Car Care-they pulled the nail out-sealed the tire and I was done in 15 minutes-THANK YOU! Very nice and professional-highly recommend. And, they have oil changes for $15.!
Melissa Schroeder Derryberry, a good friend of mine owns this shop. Very trustworthy. Give them a call.

It's the Most Wonderful Time Of The Year.

Beginning December 1st and ending December 20th, you can save on an oil change and brighten a kid's Christmas too.

Just bring in one unwrapped toy, and we'll give you $5.00 off our already-low oil change of $18.99, and you pay just $13.99 for a standard oil change. Synthetic oil is more, so call for pricing.

Merry Christmas!

We want to wish everyone a happy, healthy, and safe Thanksgiving. Enjoy your family and friends, and we'll see you Friday.

Life is full of big decisions and big purchases. But there are always some tough decisions when it comes to cars. For many, the most significant decision is when to either junk an old car, buy a new car, or keep spending money on extensive repairs and maintenance to extend the life of your current vehicle.

Drop-In, Or Discard?
Many St. Louis motorists may have to consider whether to drop a rebuilt or brand-new engine into an older car or junk it and buy a used or new car. For many folks, dropping a rebuilt or new engine in an older car makes the most sense. So let’s explore your considerations and costs.

What Are The Signs That Your Engine Is Played?
If your current engine overheats, generates excessive fumes and excessive noise, frequently knocks and stalls, has metal shavings in the system, rough idling, the check engine light consistently comes on, or frequently loses power, those are good signs that your current engine is about to fail. Or, if your car is in the shop more than it is on the road, your current engine’s life may be at an end.

How Much Is It Going To Cost Me?
For most cars, you’re looking at at least $3,000.00-$5,000.00 for a rebuilt or new engine. For more complex engines, you may be looking at as much as $6,000.00. The national average for a new or rebuilt engine for most four-cylinder cars will be about $4,000.00.

Pros and Cons
When it comes to it, most people will elect to get a new or rebuilt engine “dropped in” because it’s much cheaper than purchasing a new or good used car. Plus, buying a new vehicle can generally mean car payments, higher insurance premiums, and in Missouri, more in personal property taxes when compared to keeping an older car and replacing the engine. If the car’s body and other components are still in good shape, dropping in a new engine may make the most financial sense.

Cyclone Car Care Can Help You Choose
We’ve installed a lot of new and rebuilt engines in our decades of business, and while we can’t promise how long a new engine will last you, we can tell you the averages and general expectations. We can tell you cost-wise what you’re looking at and give you upfront pricing both on the engine and the labor costs associated with dropping in a new engine.

Many experts agree that a good quality rebuilt car engine can last as long as 150,000 miles, and some may go even further with the best care and maintenance.

As with any auto repair questions, we’ll always shoot you straight, give you options, and try to provide you with as much information as you need to make an informed decision.

Call Cyclone Car Care to learn whether a rebuilt or new engine is your best option. We're here to help. (314) 843-3800.

Truth or Myth?
You may have heard that it’s a good idea to keep your gas tank full during winter, but you may wonder if it’s true or just some myth. Well, it turns out it’s true. So keeping your fuel tank full during the winter is a brilliant idea.

Running On Empty: Avoid It!
If you can, keep your gas tank at half full or, better, on full. During the winter, it’s wise to keep your tank full. If you can fill up or top off your tank, do it. We’ll explore why keeping your tank half full or more is a wise idea to avoid costly problems and emergencies.

Four Reasons To Fill Her Up:
Stranded. The first and most obvious reason to keep your tank full is running out of gas at any time of the year is always a drag, especially during the winter. Getting stranded can be dangerous. Lower visibility and slick conditions put both you and your car in danger.

Condensation. When your gas tank is not full, there’s space where water v***r can collect and cause multiple issues, including engine corrosion and damage to the gas tank.

Sucking Air. A gas tank that’s nearly empty, running on low, or below half full is more likely to harm your fuel pump. Low fuel levels are more likely to cause the fuel pump to overheat or fail prematurely.

Replacing a fuel pump can cost you, on average, $220.00 and as much as $1,000.00. Throw in labor, and you may look at another $120.00-$260.00 on top of the replacement parts. In the long run, you’re spending more than you would by just topping off your tank. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Fuel Line Blockage & Damage. When your gas tank isn’t half full or greater, it increases the chances that your car may incur fuel line damage. This is because the gas has problems traveling through your fuel lines, leading to your vehicle failing to start or even stalling.

Fortunately, most cars are equipped with sealed fuel injection systems, so this is less of a problem than it was for older cars. Still, why take chances when simply filling your tank or adding a few more gallons can prevent all four of these issues?

Cyclone Car Care is your year-round, trusted fair source for all your auto and truck diagnostic, maintenance, repair, and replacement needs. We are the trusted ASE-certified mechanics that thousands of St. Louis and St. Louis Metro families and businesses have turned to for three generations.

We always shoot you straight. We will never sell you anything that we don’t think you need. We know times are tough, and every dollar counts. We treat your car and family as if they were our own. So stay safe this winter, and stay on the road longer. We’re here to help.

When temperatures drop, that causes your tires to lose pressure. Have you ever wondered why? Well, there's a simple explanation--as individual gas molecules get colder, they become less active and take up less space. Thus, they exert less pressure. When this occurs, your tires lose air. Keep an eye on your tires and fill them if your car's warning light comes on or if you just notice that your tires look slightly deflated. For every 10-degree drop in temperature, most tires will lose one to two PSIs.

Either way, Cyclone Car Care can handle all your car's AC/heating system maintenance, repair, and replacement needs. So, no matter the weather, we've got you covered.

There's nothing worse than jumping into your car on a cold Missouri morning, and it won't start. Instead of starting up, it makes a clicking noise and won't turn over. It can be either the battery or the alternator if you hear multiple, rapid clicks. If you hear a single click and nothing occurs, there's a good chance it's your starter. If your battery is dead or dying, that's a cheaper and easier fix. If it's your alternator or starter, that's a more significant and potentially costly repair. With cold temperatures on their way tonight, there's a good chance we'll see more folks struggling to start their cars. We hope you don't experience this issue, but if you do, Cyclone Car Care is here to diagnose your problem, fix it, and get you back on the road.

Cyclone Car Care is dedicated to helping St. Louis drivers get more miles and MPG’s out of their cars, vans, or trucks. And, when it seems like gas prices can't go any higher, they do. Of course, you need to maximize your mileage and save money, but how do you do that? Well, we've got 16 tips to help you reach optimal gas mileage and save money:

1. Avoid excessive acceleration, braking, and speeding. One of the best ways to avoid wasting gas is to drive safely and consistently.

2. Keep your speed at 50 MPH or less whenever possible. Studies show that for every five miles over 50, you use approximately .22 more gas per mile. If you're going 70, you're losing over a dollar per mile. Driving at a reasonable speed can save you as much as forty cents a gallon over driving 70 mph or greater.

3. Use your cruise control feature. Cruise control can help you lock in a reasonable speed and attain better gas mileage. It's estimated that cruise control can save you as much as 14% per mile.

4. Turn off your car when idling. If you're going to be stopped for more than 10 seconds, it's probably a good idea to shut off your vehicle.

5. Make sure your tires are properly inflated. Each underinflated tire that is underinflated by as little as 10 PSI leads to a three percent loss per tire.

6. Replace your old spark plugs. Misfiring spark plugs lead to difficulties starting your engine, thus increasing fuel waste.

7. Maintain proper alignment. Misalignments not only put stress and wear on your tires but can also reduce gas mileage by creating unnecessary drag. For example, a misaligned car can decrease mileage by 10 percent.

8. Lose weight. You're reducing your mileage if you have a lot of junk in the trunk. For every 100 pounds, you can decrease mileage by 1%.

9. Fill up when it's cooler outside. Fuel gains density when it's cooler, as it would be in the morning, and loses that density as it gets hotter.

10. Consider driving a more fuel-efficient car, especially if your old car is a gas guzzler and has poor mileage.

11. Keep windows closed on the highway. Open windows produce drag, especially at greater speeds. That drag can reduce gas mileage.

12. Fill up on Mondays if you can. Mondays are typically the days with the lowest gas prices.

13. Turn off the AC. This is tough, but turn off your AC when traveling in stop-and-go traffic or at lower speeds.

14. Maintain a steady speed. Traveling on the highway between a rate of 50 mph and 65mph is best.

15. Sign up for gas rewards or cash-back programs, especially for the purchase of gas.

16. Use the various apps that help you locate the cheapest gas in your area.

And finally, make sure that you keep your car tuned up and maintained with help from your trusted ASE-certified mechanics at Cyclone Car Care.
