The turbo on your diesel pickup is a precision engineered component. As a result, proper maintenance is essential to keeping it going strong.

Your car’s radio and headlights, plus a slew of other important functions, are powered by an electrical current generated by your vehicle’s engine. A vital part of generating electricity is having a place to store it while it’s not being used. This is where your car battery comes into play. The battery of your vehicle holds electrical energy while the car is off in order to help the engine turn over and create a spark to start internal combustion. Without a working battery, your car will not be able to start. If you allow our team here at Larry's Automotive to perform proper maintenance, an average car battery can start your car reliably for roughly four years.
