car door

No matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive, old or new, it probably has doors. Those doors are heavy, and they see a lot of use. Naturally, from time to time, parts wear out. If your door doesn’t function as well as it should, here’s why, courtesy of Martin's Garage in Shippensburg.

If you drive a lightweight car, truck, or SUV, the torque converter you have installed is probably just fine. For those of you with more heavy-duty applications, like high horsepower setups or towing rigs, the stock converter may not be enough. At Martin's Garage in Shippensburg, PA, we can help you determine if your torque converter is right for the job you need to be done.

under the hood of a diesel vehicle

The automotive market is always fast-changing, and leaps and bounds have been made in the past couple of decades concerning both diesel and gasoline engines. With gasoline-powered trucks achieving more power than ever, purchase costs being lower, and fuel costs at an all-time low, many fleets are switching over to gasoline-powered fleets. However, diesel still offers some distinct advantages - it really depends on what you're looking for for your fleet of vehicles.
