Vehicle Tips

According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.

The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)

Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.

Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.

Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.

A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.

Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.

Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.

Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.

Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.

Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.

Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.

Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.

Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.

Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.

Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.

Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.

Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.

Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.

Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Perfect combination of great service, excellent quality customer care and fair price. They have provided few services such as replacing my brake pads and bearing wheels, leaving my car in a great condition. They explained me in detail the job that was done. Highly recommended
reviewicon
We use SNT all the time... oil changes, new brakes, tire rotations, tire plugs.. always quality work that's done when they say it's going to be done. They are reliable, caring and talented. Highly recommend.

Small family owned business, don't mind taking my vehicle's here for repair as Nick started he's not a salesman he just likes to work on cars. That says a ton they're not about just making a dollar and will help you in any way they can. Trustworthy mechanic

Stopped in for air and found a screw in my tire! Randy to the rescue. He was so friendly and nice. He pulled the screw, put in a plug and I was out of there in 15 minutes. What a nice guy he definitely made my day.
reviewicon
The guys at SNT auto are great. I have taken both my vehicles there while living in Linthicum. As a single woman it can be hard to trust an auto mechanic shop and I will always be grateful that I could trust them to take care of my car without fear of being taken advantage of.

This is your "Go to ...Family Friendly..Best ever"mechanic.. using them 3.5 years. Honest and polite. Supporting this, local family business!!!
reviewicon
You will not find another shop as honest and helpful as SNT Automotive! I have been bringing my vehicles here to be serviced and worked on ever since a friend first referred me to them 4 years ago. Nick and Tom have always been professional and have bent over backwards at times to make sure my experience is always a 5 star one! I recommend my family and friends here because I trust the work they do and know they will be taken care of.
reviewicon
Honest and absolutely the best service.I'm a recent transplant to Baltimore and needed work and inspection on my Audi S4.I was fit in very quickly and the entire crew took care of everything quickly and at a VERY reasonable rate. Tom and Nick, the owners, who run the shop are incredibly helpful and even stepped in when needed; the place very much has a family atmosphere. Give SNT a try and save yourself a ton of frustration and even more money.
reviewicon
I believe in supporting local businesses. When I moved to the area, I was looking for a car care establishment to take care of my maintenance and repair needs. I came across SNT Automotive and looked no further. Tom and Nick have been there for me and my family multiple times and have provided me with quality service and professionalism you would expect from a dealership. Believe me, they have gone above and beyond what is expected when it comes to getting my vehicles back on the road. I will continue bringing my vehicles to SNT Automotive for all of my car care needs in the future!
reviewicon
Exceptional customer service and superior quality work. This team of professionals will care for your vehicle. I am a repeat customer because of their work. They are efficient and effective. Their rates are very reasonable. I trust what they tell me and follow their advice. Well done SNT, and thank you for helping me on several occasions!!
reviewicon
SNT has been my go auto repair family for a long time now. They are wonderful to work with, and their work is excellent and reliable. They get the job done and your vehicle will run like new when completed. Tom and Nick are very nice people to work with and they work with you as well. I would not take my vehicle anywhere else for maintenance and repairs.
reviewicon
I came in because my brakes were gone and SNT Auto was able to get me in and out the same day! They have exceptional customer service and quality of work! I will definitely be a return customer and will be telling all of my friends know to use their services from now on!
reviewicon
They did an amazing job on my car. They were always very curtious and professional. I needed to get a transmission flush and filters replaced. They needed something special from Volkswagen in order to do the transmission flush properly after they had inspected the car. I booked an appointment for a week later and they had all of the things in stock that they ordered from Volkswagen and did it in a timely manner. They even provdeda receipt from Volkswagen showing how much they paid for the supplies. I will be returning again in the future!
reviewicon
As a female who doesn't know anything about cars, I dread going to car repair shops to get it fixed because I feel like some places will try to sell me things I don't need and take advantage of my lack of knowledge. I asked around and a friend told me to come here, and so I did. I am happy I visited SNT as they are reasonably priced and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. That day, I ended up meeting Tom, Jesse, and Phil who helped me. I'll be returning back again soon to get more work done.
reviewicon
I can't recommend SNT Automotive highly enough! I was stranded six hours away from home on Easter Saturday, and despite the fact that they were closing early, Tom made time to come pick me up from my hotel -- who does that! -- and fix my car in an hour flat, sending me on my way in time to make it to my Easter destination. It was great service and a great display of kindness. Thank you, SNT!
reviewicon
I have taken all my cars to SNT and they always do a top notch job, they describe every step and every part. No last minute "shenanigans" here, very very honest people. If you are searching for a great shop with people that care go on and stop by, i bet you will leave your car !
reviewicon
I have been a local Linthicum resident for all of my life. SNT automotive has been a fixture for alot of years and the folks there are wonderful. The head guy Mr. Tom is a good man and was very good to my mother when she was having car problems right after my father died. Just recently had the ignition coils on my 2000 marquis repaired/replaced, they did the job quickly and priced it fairly. Would never take my business to anyone else!
reviewicon
While driving on I-295 south one if my brakes actually came apart, causing a ton of wheel vibration. I pulled off the highway and headed for Linthicum. Lucky for me these guys were close by. They were super friendly and immediately went to work to help me out. In less than one hour I was on my way with brakes intact! I live in the city, but I will definitely consider coming here for future repairs.
reviewicon
This is an amazing shop. Nick is a quality stand up professional at his job and walk you through everything. We will definitely be repeat customers and recommend them to everybody!
reviewicon
I have been extremely impressed by the service at SNT. Sometimes you hear about automotive shops taking advantage of customers in some shape or form. I have not experienced this here. I had a bad experience with my brakes a few years back that has since made me paranoid about every squeal I hear. I have taken my car in to get the brakes checked on three different occasions and all three times, the staff took the time to check and then actually told me that they were fine....all for free. I appreciate the honesty. My experience with SNT has been that they are friendly, personable and knowledgeable. It's no wonder to me that so much of their business seems to be return customers.
reviewicon
These guys are the best! Very helpful and knowledgeable. It's good to have car guys that you can trust.
reviewicon
One word: honest! Been going to them for years and will continue to do so. They will try to save you as much money as they can.
reviewicon
SNT was friendly, knowledgeable and reasonably priced! I definitely suggest using them!

My car broke down in BWI parking garage on Presidents Day Monday. I felt helpless. Without knowing where to have my car towed, luckily I had it towed to SNT. Tom and SNT Auto staff cared for me and my vehicle like I had known them for years even though I was a stranger from out of town. They had me on my way in a couple hours. Thank you!!!
