  • Vehicle tips

    • According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
    • The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
    • Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
    • Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
    • Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
    • A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
    • Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
    • Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
    • Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
    • Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
    • Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
    • Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
    • Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
    • Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
    • Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
    • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
    • Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
    • Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
    • Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
    • Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.

    Testimonials

    • This is the best Auto mechanic in Asheville hands down. Mike and his crew have worked on all my vehicles for almost a decade. Everything from oil changes to complete engine replacements. I have never had any problems, they always do a great job and finish the work in a timely manner. Finding a trust worthy Auto mechanic is not an easy task, Mike is the best I have ever worked with, his knowledge is vast which makes him one of the best at diagnosing problems.
      -G. R.V.

    • I always buy new vehicles, so I rarely have mechanical issues with my cars. However, I typically order new tires for my cars online, and have gone to Mike Byer for years to have those installed on my cars. I also have my inspections done there, and as a matter of fact had new tires installed and an inspection done last week. I also know others who use Mike Byer, and have never heard of anyone having a bad experience. These guys are unfailingly polite, courteous, professional, and fair. Their pricing is the best in town, and I trust them (something that you value highly when dealing a mechanic, obviously). I would recommend them to anyone in the Asheville area who needs an auto mechanic.
      -Brian C.

    • I have used these folks twice now and each time they gave me clear reports of what they found and options for each including if/when/how to approach each. Their prices are great and things were done when promised. Great folks to work with!
      -Todd D.

    • I moved to the area 6 years ago and never thought I would find someone I trusted to take care of my car troubles. I'm so glad I found Mike Byer. Everyone is always very polite and respectful, in my experiences. Every service or repair I've had was completed in a timely manner and either at or under the estimated cost. They've come through in the clutch when I needed an oil change before making an emergency trip out of town and even checked my tire pressure. I show up without an appointment, having a tire that needed a patch and they handled it with grace. These folks treat you like a person and a member of a community, not like a dollar sign. This is also one of the few places that hasn't treated me differently based on my gender or what they assume I know about cars. I would highly recommend Mike Byer Auto for ALL of your automotive needs. Thanks guys, keep up the fantastic work!
      -Holly M.

    • An excellent example of a solid local and trusted shop. I've gone there several times and driven away feeling that what I asked for was done properly and at a reasonable cost. Reliability is worth a lot to me and I've not been let down.
      -Larry W.

    • Have been a customer of Mike's since 2008 and have had nothing but consistently successful experiences with him and his staff. In the automotive field, it's rare to find a trusted and highly experienced group of personnel who accurately troubleshoot the full variety of automotive issues, and who keep the customer's best interests a priority. His facility provides a personalized and comfortable atmosphere where the customer can feel confident in making a well informed purchasing decision. He and his associate, Sumpter, both have a way of reporting diagnostic results in a language that any customer can easily understand. In short, I would recommend anyone to Mike Byer Autoworks.
      -A.J. M

    • Mike Byer Auto fixed my car for $400 less than what I was quoted at Mountain View Tire. They are honest and knowledgeable and give great customer service. I will come back.
