The Squeaky Wheel: Summer Stressors

Ashland Automotive

Jump in the car, turn the key, and vroom.  It's that simple, most days. 

Then there are the OTHER times, when there's no vroom, or a clank-clank to go with it. 

Zach Edwards has heard many unusual sounds (and lack of them) in his years fixing cars.  He's now the owner of Ashland Automotive and our regular guest for a segment called "The Squeaky Wheel."  Listen as we take cars apart (metaphorically) to find what ails them, with an emphasis on the particular stresses summer--and hot weather--puts on vehicles.
