  • Air Filtration & Why It Is Important

    dirty air filter vs clean filter

    Your vehicle's engine needs clean air to burn the fuel – and it needs a lot of clean air. In fact, a typical vehicle needs about 216,000 gallons of air for every tank of gas. All that air passes through a filter that catches the dust and dirt. Eventually, the filter gets completely full, and because the filter can only hold so much, dirt starts getting through. At Lee's Brake, Muffler, & Tire Service in Sandersville, we ensure you get the best air quality in your vehicle and explain the process of where this dirty air is going to our area drivers. 

  • Are Your Ball Joints Failing?

  • Best Questions to Ask A Mechanic

    A good technician will give your vehicle a quick inspection whenever you have maintenance performed. Fluid levels, tire condition, dashboard lights, and a variety of other items typically are briefly explored whenever you bring your vehicle in for maintenance. At Lee's Brake, Muffler, & Tire Service in Sandersville, GA, we're good at noticing things that need repair, but the fact of the matter is that only you know your vehicle. You know when your vehicle feels off when its been serviced last (or that it hasn't been serviced at all,) and have at least some vague idea of what’s going on with your vehicle day to day. Here are some questions you can ask us next time you come by the shop:

  • Can’t shift out of Park?

    There may come a day when you go to shift your vehicle out of “Park”, and the shifter refuses to move. Perhaps you are already experiencing this issue intermittently, or currently have a vehicle stuck in park. While this is a serious inconvenience, it doesn’t necessarily indicate a serious problem; let Lee's Brake, Muffler, & Tire Service in Sandersville, GA put your mind at ease.

  • Common Heater/AC Fan Switch Issues

  • Difference between Four Wheel Drive and All Wheel Drive

    At Lee's Brake, Muffler, & Tire Service in Sandersville, GA, we service all types of transmissions, on any car, truck, or SUV.

  • Do You Know How Your AC Works?

    There are many parts and systems outside of the car’s transmission that is equally as important as the parts and systems inside the transmission. Without them, the transmission won’t do much.

Just in case you need us, at Lee's Brake, Muffler, & Tire Service in Sandersville, GA, we can help keep your transmission in top shape, but here’s what you need to know.

    Your drive belts are simple but integral components to the function of your car, truck, or SUV. At Lee's Brake, Muffler, & Tire Service in Sandersville, belts are one of the first things we assess when looking over a vehicle, as they alone are in charge of operating your AC, water pump, alternator, and power steering.

  • How Do I Fix My Manual Transmission Problem?

    Manual transmissions are generally more reliable than automatic transmissions. They don’t have as many parts, aren’t as complex, and can take a lot more abuse. However, if an issue is allowed to persist, more and more damage to surrounding components on your manual transmission will occur. Lee's Brake, Muffler, & Tire Service in Sandersville, GA can help you take care of your car as soon as you notice a problem.

  • How is the Air Quality in Your Vehicle?

In fact, a typical vehicle needs about 216,000 gallons of air for every tank of gas. All that air passes through a filter that catches the dust and dirt. Eventually, the filter gets completely full, and because the filter can only hold so much, dirt starts getting through. At Lee's Brake, Muffler, & Tire Service in Sandersville, we want to help you get the best air quality in your vehicle, but first, we want to explain the process of where this dirty air is going.
