Clients are often hesitant to believe that we can be experts in more than one era of cars. Time and time again, though, we show them that we really know what we’re doing! Here are some of the things we know about older cars versus newer ones:

  • Surprise, surprise…there aren’t that many differences. Gasoline and air ignite in a cylinder, where pistons move up and down, activating the crankshaft. This leads to the transmission, which powers the wheels. But there are a lot of things to consider in that “simple” process, and each car’s system is a little bit different from the next. That doesn’t even take into account hybrid and electric cars. Luckily, we’re experts in all matters related to your car!
  • Modern engines are much more efficient than the older ones. Newer cars have direct injection technology and other neat features that improve their ability to use fuel. You don’t use as much fuel in them as you do in older cars, but you do have a lot more elements that can go wrong.
  • Today’s cars are a lot more powerful, but way smaller. Technology has a way of doing that, and those in the business have to keep up. Otherwise, our skill set would become obsolete every few years. More power means more moving parts, and those parts are getting smaller with every model.
  • Older cars’ motors aren’t as complex. Although parts for older cars may be harder to come by, we love how straightforward they are. New cars come equipped with high-tech computers and 7- or 8-speed “smart” transmissions. They can be much trickier to work on since there are mechanical and electrical components to consider.
