When your check engine light is blinking at you, you need a Marrero auto repair pro like the Marrero auto repair pros at Twin Tire.

You were thinking about going to the Tango Festival today, but you’re hesitating. When you were driving home last night, you noticed your check engine light had come on. Not only had it come on, it was blinking. That’s something you’d never seen before.

It’s something you really do NOT want to see. It indicates your car is in immediate need of a Marrero auto repair expert.

“If the check engine light illuminates, it will either blink or remain constantly illuminated, depending on the problem. A blinking light, or in some cars a red light instead of a yellow or orange light, indicates a problem that needs immediate attention. Either way, you should have the vehicle checked by a mechanic,” consumerreports.org says.

Consumerreports.org adds, “In late-model cars, a blinking light usually indicates an engine misfire so severe that unburned fuel is being dumped into the exhaust system, where it can quickly damage the catalytic converter, leading to an expensive repair. If that happens, you should reduce power and have the car or truck looked at as soon as possible.”

If you’re looking for a reliable Marrero auto repair pro, look no further than the certified Marrero auto repair specialists at Twin Tire Auto Care.

You're in luck because Twin Tire has a June special - 10 percent off on any mechanical service you need up to $100.

If your auto air needs help, you can take advantage of Twin Tire's June special on auto air conditioning: a/c drain, evac and recharge for only $99.95. That’s a savings of $40.04 over the normal price of $139.99.

Ask a Twin Tire auto repair pro for full details on both deals. But take advantage of them now, they’re only good until the end of the month.

Twin Tire has been the trusted New Orleans auto care and auto repair service center since 1973. Twin Tire has three convenient New Orleans auto care and auto repair service centers to help you - MarreroHarvey and Hammond.

Twin Tire and Auto Care is a proud provider of Firestone Tires | Bridgestone Tires | Goodyear Tires for the New Orleans area.

If your brakes aren’t working and you need a Marrero auto repair expert, call the Marrero auto repair technicians at Twin TIre.

You were coming back from the Tomato Festival when you noticed it. You pressed on the brake pedal and everything seemed okay, then the brake pedal started sinking. Because it didn’t seem to have an effect on your brakes – your car stopped normally – you’re not sure whether you can blow it off or need to take your car to a Marrero auto repair specialist.

“Is it bad when your brake pedal goes all the way to the floor? In a word, yes. Exactly how bad is a matter for discussion -- a discussion you really need to have with a reputable mechanic,” auto.howstuffworks.com says.

Auto.howstuffworks.com adds, “The brake pedal going all the way to the floor can be caused by a number of different issues. All of the possible causes need to be addressed, even if the car is stopping fine.”

Among the possible causes: low or no brake fluid; a bad master cylinder; or a bad brake booster.

But there’s no need to worry. All of them can be fixed by the certified Marrero  auto repair pros at Twin Tire Auto Care.

While you're at Twin Tire, also check your auto air. If your auto air isn't cooling, you can take advantage of Twin Tire's June special on auto air conditioning: a/c drain, evac and recharge for only $99.95. That’s a savings of $40.04 over the normal price of $139.99.

And, if your auto air doesn’t need recharging, but needs a new compressor, you can take advantage of Twin Tire’s other June deal – 10 percent off on any mechanical service you need up to $100.

Ask a Twin Tire auto repair pro for full details on both deals. But take advantage of them now, they’re only good until the end of the month.

Even if it's only a day trip, check your Marrero tires before you get on the road. If they need repair, care, or replacement, see the Marrero tire pros at Twin Tire.

Summer is a time when many people head out on road trips. Sometimes, the road trips are planned in advance. Other times, they're a spur of the moment thing - like day trips to Shell Beach or other nearby destinations.

But whether the trip is long, short, planned, or on impulse, they should all have one thing in common - making sure your car is ready to go before you set out. Especially the tires, according to Florida's Department of Transportation and the Florida Highway Patrol.

"Whether you’re hitting the road for the ultimate family vacation or driving across town, prepare before you leave, practice good habits behind the wheel and never leave children or pets unattended,” said Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Kevin J. Thibault, P.E. “From checking tire pressure and planning your route to always driving sober and obeying the speed limit, simple steps can make a big difference and help keep you and others safe.”

The FHP offers a checklist for drivers who are going on road trips. Among those tips:  "Check all tires, including the spare. Check the vehicle’s tire pressure and ensure the vehicle’s tires have adequate tire tread. Under-inflated tires can overheat. Never overload a vehicle; it can result in premature tire wear, blowouts and hydroplaning."

If you need help checking your Marrero tires, or you check them yourself and find out you need Marrero tire care, repair, or replacement, call Twin Tire Auto Care. Twin Tire’s Marrero tire pros can help you with that!

While you're at Twin Tire, also check your auto air. If your auto air isn't cooling, you can take advantage of Twin Tire's June special on auto air conditioning: a/c drain, evac and recharge for only $99.95. That’s a savings of $40.04 over the normal price of $139.99.

When you need a Marrero auto repair technician to repair your auto air conditioner, look no further than the Marrero auto repair pros at Twin Tire.

You’ve been looking for something different to do this weekend. You’ve decided you’re either going to try the scavenger hunt or you’re going to pile the kids and the dog in the car and head out on a weekend road trip.

Before you leave on that road trip, make sure your car is ready for kids and pets. The Florida Highway Patrol is reminding drivers that hot weather is hard on pets and kids, so you should never leave either one in a hot car even for a short period of time – the inside of a vehicle can heat by 20 degrees in just 10 minutes and cracking a window open does little to keep the vehicle cool.

A car can get just as hot while moving – even with the windows open – so drivers should also make sure their vehicles will be comfortable for them and their passengers. That means drivers need to make sure their auto air conditioner is working at peak performance.

If your auto air conditioner needs service, repair or replacement, you need a Marrero auto repair pro like the Marrero auto repair specialists at Twin Tire Auto Care.

While you might not think you’re lucky to find you need to service or repair your auto air, you are in luck because Twin Tire has a June special on auto air conditioning.

f it’s simply a matter of recharging your auto air, then you can take advantage of Twin Tire’s auto air deal – a/c drain, evac and recharge for only $99.95. That’s a savings of $40.04 over the normal price of $139.99.

And, if your auto air doesn’t need recharging, but needs a new compressor, you can take advantage of Twin Tire’s other June deal – 10 percent off on the mechanical service you need up to $100.

When your auto air conditioner won’t cool your car, you need a Marrero auto repair professional like the Marrero auto repair technicians at Twin Tire.

It’s been really hot in New Orleans recently and, with summer just beginning, you know it’s going to get worse, much worse. Now’s the time when finding a shady place to park makes your day successful.

That’s why you were appalled when you were coming home from work last night to discover your auto air conditioner was blowing hot air. You fiddled with the knobs, but nothing seemed to work. You’re even thinking of skipping the Oyster Festival if the auto air doesn’t work today.

Your auto air could just need recharging. Or you might have a bad auto air compressor.

There are a few symptoms you can look out for to know when you have a failing AC compressor,” cartreaatments.com says. “The most obvious symptom is when the air conditioner does not blow out cold air anymore. Either it will be completely warm air or the level of coldness won’t be what it once was. This happens when the compressor can no longer regulate the flow of refrigerator that is within the air conditioning system.”

Cartreatments.com says you should also be on the lookout for any noises the auto air makes when you turn it on.

If you want to get cool again, you’re going to have to find a Marrero auto repair technician to help you. A Marrero auto repair pro, like the Marrero auto repair specialists at Twin Tire Auto Care, will be able to tell you whether your auto air simply needs to be recharged or if there’s something else going on.

Either way, the Marrero auto repair experts at Twin Tire can help you with recharging or repairing your auto air.

Better yet, Twin Tire has two June specials to help you out.

If it’s simply a matter of recharging your auto air, then you can take advantage of Twin Tire’s auto air deal – a/c drain, evac and recharge for only $99.95. That’s a savings of $40.04 over the normal price of $139.99.

And, if your auto air doesn’t need recharging, but needs a new compressor, you can take advantage of Twin Tire’s other June deal – 10 percent off on the mechanical service you need up to $100.

Ask a Twin Tire auto repair pro for full details on both deals. But take advantage of them now, they’re only good until the end of the month.

You were driving home last night from the Overlook Horror Film Festival when you had your own bit of horror. Your steering wheel started vibrating and your car started pulling to one side. Now you’re wondering if your steering system is shot.

Perhaps. But the more likely culprit is one or more of your tires.  One of your tires could be going flat. Or, your tires could be out of alignment. One of the symptoms that indicate your tires need a new alignment is when your car drifts to one side of the road or the other. Other symptoms, according to cartreaatments.com, include sloppy steering, vibrations in your steering wheel, and uneven tire wear.

Your best bet is to consult the New Orleans tire experts at Twin Tire Auto Care. Twin Tire’s New Orleans tire pros can determine what’s wrong with your tires. And, if it’s not your tires causing the problem, they can also provide the trusted New Orleans auto repair that’s needed to get your car driving right again.

Ask one of Twin Tire’s tire guys for full details.

Friday (May 31) is the last day to take advantage of Twin Tire’s May tire special. Don’t miss the chance to get a free tire.

You celebrated Memorial Day in part by going to the Bayou Country Superfest and the World War II Memorial Museum. While driving, you noticed that something was wrong. The steering wheel seemed to be vibrating and the steering itself seemed a bit sluggish. You’re wondering what’s wrong with your steering system.

Don’t be so quick to blame your steering system. It could be your tires.

As cartreatments.com says, “One of the earliest warning signs of unbalanced tires is feeling vibrations coming from the steering wheel. Just the slightest imbalance of your tires on the road will cause vibrations to occur as you drive. You will feel these vibrations clearly in the steering wheel at first. But eventually, the entire cabin of your vehicle will start to vibrate, including all the seating in the front and back.”

And another symptom of unbalanced tires is trouble steering.

The best way to find out what’s wrong is to drop by the Marrero tire and auto care pros at Twin Tire Auto Care. If it’s not your tires, Twin Tire’s Marrero auto care experts can fix the problem. And, if it IS your tires, Twin Tire’s Marrero tire pros can balance your tires.

While you’re at Twin Tire, be sure to check whether you need new tires. If you do, you’re in luck because Twin Tire has a May tire special that’s good at all Twin Tire locations. But hurry because time's running out. The deal is only good until Friday (May 31):

You only have a few more days to take advantage of Twin Tire’s May tire special. Call Twin Tire now and find out how to get a free tire.

You were walking back to your car after the Greek Festival last night when you happened to glance at your Marrero tires and realized how worn down the tread is. Even though you’re a procrastinator, you know it’s time for a new set of Marrero tires.

You’re absolutely right about that. As msn.com notes, “When the tread on your tires gets too low, it’s time for fresh rubber.”

Sometimes it’s obvious that your tread is low. At other times, it’s less so. Msn.com suggests this test: “Place a penny in the grooves between the tread on your tires with Lincoln’s head pointing down. If you can still see the top of Lincoln’s head, then the tread is too shallow and new tires are in order.”

When it’s time for new Marrero tires, the best place to go is Twin Tire Auto Care.

While you’re at Twin Tire, ask about our May tire special: Buy a tire installation package and you get one free tire when you buy three tires. An installation package includes tire mounting and balancing, alignment and road hazard. The deal applies only to select tires and it’s only available through Friday (May 31).
