Roadside Assistance

Roadside Assistance

Roadside assistance is for drivers who find themselves suddenly stranded with an inoperable vehicle. Reasons, why drivers call for roadside assistance, may vary. A motorist may hit a pothole or foreign object that causes a tire to blow out, or a vehicle’s gas tank might reach empty before the driver can refill it. In addition, a vehicle may need a jumpstart, or the vehicle’s owner may need help accessing the vehicle after being locked out. In general, the roadside assistance service can help motorists with problems like replacing flat tires, filling empty gas tanks, jumpstarting batteries, lockout assistance, as well as other minor mechanical repairs. Sometimes there is no way to prepare for the misfortunes of the road. Our roadside assistance is designed to help you recover from these misfortunes and continue traveling.

Flat Tire Repair

 

Basics Behind Flat Tire Repair Services

at Woodstock Tire Service

It's important to take good care of your tires, or else you could end up with a flat. Flat tires are caused by many things, but one common reason is incorrect tire pressure. Tire pressure above the level suggested by your manufacturer will lead to slight bouncing as you drive, which in turn will weaken traction and increase your chances of hitting an obstacle in the road that may puncture your tire. When tire pressure is too low, more of your tire touches the road. This increases friction, which could make your tires overheat and lead to a blowout. Another reason for a flat tire could be a damaged valve stem, the component that allows the tire to be filled with air. Your tires may also simply be worn, allowing air to leak out. All of these conditions could lead to a flat tire while driving.

Why Should You Have Flat Tire Repair Services Performed at Woodstock Tire Service?

If you get a flat tire while driving, you should immediately pull over to an area isolated from traffic. Driving on a flat tire can cause damage to the wheel or cause you to lose control of your car entirely. If you pull over but find yourself unable to change the tire on your own, we can help. Our knowledgeable staff is equipped with the right tools to replace your flat tire with a spare tire. If we arrive on-site to replace your tire but you don’t have a spare tire in your car, we can remove your flat tire and replace it with a new tire instead. We strive to respond with speed and efficiency, so give us a call. We’ll work hard to have you back on the road in no time.

Fuel Service

A gasoline engine, or a combustion engine, uses internal combustion to generate power. Engine pistons compress air that mixes with fuel and this mixture is then ignited to create the energy that powers a car. To keep vehicles running, drivers are encouraged to keep an eye on the level of gas in their tanks. However, there are many reasons drivers run out of gas. A faulty gas tank gauge or overlooking the necessary time to refuel are two reasons drivers may need to call a fuel service provider. Running out of gas while driving can be both dangerous and stressful, but our fuel delivery services can help. When you’re away from a gas station and have no fuel left to make the trip, we can send someone with fuel. Our workers will deliver the fuel needed to safely reach the nearest gas station. If you need roadside assistance, please give us a call for our fuel service.

Jump Start

 

Basics Behind Jump Start Services

at Woodstock Tire Service

Cars need the electrical power produced by batteries for many different purposes, including starting the engine, storing electrical energy, and supplying electrical power to the engine. Cars use battery power to operate electrical systems when the alternator is not running, including headlights, stereo, and most dashboard control operations. Car batteries are charged by the alternator, but starting and stopping the engine within a short time span can cause the battery to die, because the alternator needs about 20 minutes of engine power to fully charge a drained battery. Leaving electronics or lights running while the car is off will drain power from the battery, and extreme temperatures can cause a car battery to fail. Severe cold or heat can cause problems with a battery’s chemical reaction needed to generate power. If you are experiencing battery problems, then you may need a jump start to get going again.

Why Should You Have Jump Start Services Performed at Woodstock Tire Service?

If you find yourself with a dead battery, there’s no need to panic. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you get your vehicle up and running.

Incorrectly connected jumper cables can destroy your battery or even your entire engine control computer. After a member of our service staff arrives on the scene, he or she will determine whether the problem lies with the battery or with a different part of your vehicle.

Lockout Service

 

Basics Behind Lockout Services

at Woodstock Tire Service

A vehicle’s security system is essential in protecting you and your vehicle from theft. Security system components include alarms, keys, locks, keyless entry remotes, and remote car starters. Different brands and types of cars have varying degrees of security, but every car on the market comes equipped with a set of locks. There are several different categories of automotive locks: manual or automatic, centrally or individually operated, child safety locks, and many more. Keeping your car locked helps keep it safe, but it is often easy to lock yourself out by closing the door with your keys still inside the vehicle. If you attempt to get back into your car using a coat hanger or similar item, you may set off an alarm or damage your car and have to pay for both a lockout and a repair of the damaged item. Emergency car lockout services are the best way to get back into your car.

Why Should You Have Lockout Services Performed at Woodstock Tire Service?
