ARIZONA ADVENTURES w/ Randy & Lori...Crown King

ARIZONA ADVENTURES w/ Randy & Lori...Crown King

ON THE ROAD AGAIN... The road up the mountain to Crown King can be driven with a car or truck but we feel the best way up is in a quad or razor………….FUN, FUN, FUN! In early March, 26 of us headed north from our home in Black Canyon City. Some were in quads, some in razors and thank God some in trucks, aka the Chuck Wagons (carrying the necessary food and beverages for the trip). Our first stop was Antelope Falls that is connected to a creek in Old Cordes close to Bumble Bee. There is a 75 foot waterfall and below it is a large natural swimming pool. Close to the falls are remnants of a small stone home and also a way cool outcropping full of Petroglyphs. This is a great place to stop for a break and light lunch.

Or with no washer fluid. Wiper blades live outside the vehicle, exposed to heat and sun in the summer and cold and ice in the winter. It’s no wonder that they get dry, brittle and torn. We recommend changing wiper blades twice a year – before they’re so damaged that they don’t work. If you replace them in one of your spring and fall oil changes, you should always have wiper ... read more

Check engine light is on, now what?

When your check engine lights comes on, you may be torn between utter panic and just wanting to ignore it and hope it goes away. That’s perfectly understandable. That same check engine light could come on for anything from a serious engine or transmission problem all the way down to a loose gas cap. There’s a very common misconception that the trouble codes stored in your engine computer when your check engine light comes on will specifically identify a problem. It’s really more like pointing to the symptoms of a problem. Think of taking your temperature. Say it’s 101. Your heat sensor – the thermometer – tells you that your temperature is out of the normal range. But it doesn’t tell you why you have a fever. Is it the flu or a sinus infection? You need more information; more tests. For any given trouble code, there could be a number of causes.
