Clinics to offer help diagnosing car issues

Is the check engine light on in your car? When it lights up, it’s natural to be concerned about what might be wrong. In October, the North Central Texas Council of Governments is partnering with local automotive repair facilities to conduct a series of car care clinics.

An illuminated check engine light means your vehicle will not pass the annual Texas emissions inspection, which is required to get it registered. The free clinics will provide opportunities to speak with certified technicians about problems and how they should be addressed. The issues may cost less than you think to repair. It could be as simple as a bad gas cap that needs to be replaced.

The clinics are not just for motorists trying to diagnose engine issues. Technicians will also offer free multipoint inspections to anyone who attends.

Regular maintenance is urged as a way to help ensure vehicles run more efficiently, which improves air quality and can save consumers money in the long term.

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard. For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".
