  • 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.

Testimonials

  • Steve and his crew have kept my cars going strong for decades now. I couldn't be more impressed with the work they do and the great way they treat their customers.
    -Linda B.

  • Very knowledgeable people that work there. I highly recommend this place.
    -Norman B.

  • I HAVE KNOWN ABOUT LINSKY'S AUTO REPAIR FOR ABOUT SIX YEARS. I FIRST MET STEVE, HIS CREW, AND MOTHER (WHILE BEING EMPLOYED AS A LOCAL DELIVERY DRIVER). OVER THE YEARS, HIS ENTIRE STAFF AND FAMILY HAVE BECOME TRUE FRIENDS; HOWEVER, THIS IS HOW HIS ENTIRE OPERATION INTER-REACTS WITH HIS CUSTOMERS. YOU CAN TAKE YOUR NEW $45,000.00 BMW, OR YOUR $ 750.00, 23 YEAR OLD CHRYSLER FOR REPAIRS AND BOTH CARS GET THE SAME EXCELLENT REPAIR WORK. EACH CUSTOMER IS TREATED AS AN INDIVIDUAL AND MADE TO FEEL SPECIAL - THAT THEIR CAR IS THE ONLY ONE HIS CREW WILL BE WORKING ON UNTIL THE JOB IS DONE, AND DONE CORRECTLY. HIS LATE FATHER'S EXPRESSION "DON'T WORRY ABOUT NUTTIN" CAN NOT BE SAID ANY CLEARER. OH YES, DON'T FORGET TO ATTEND THE CHRISTMAS PARTY. A REAL OLD TRADITION FAMILY AND FRIENDS TIME

  • As I started heading home, I hit my brake and it went down to the floor, with only a bare amount of stopping power if I pushed really hard on the brake pedal. I crept home over the hilly and winding roads to Annisquam, rolled to a stop and parked. I immediately called Baron, who was getting ready to go on vacation, was overbooked and couldn't see her, but did say it was my brake lines that had gone. He suggested I call Billy next door, who it turned out was also getting ready to go on vacation and couldn't help. I didn't know where to turn, so I asked Debbie for a suggestion. She recommended Linsky's Service Station at 159 Maplewood Ave. I called them and reached Doris who told me to have Annie towed over and they would take a look and give me an estimate. I called AAA and they sent a couple of sweet guys from Tally's over to tow her. Baron had already given me best and worst-case scenario estimates, so I had an idea of what I could be looking at, the worst case not being something I could manage. Later in the day Doris called to tell me that the two rear brake lines were gone, and very sweetly and almost apologetically told me it would cost $148.00, $2.00 less than the best case estimate Baron had given me. I was thrilled and told her to go ahead with the repairs. My girl now stops, she was fixed quickly and at a price I could afford (and I believe a very fair price), and I felt so comfortable dealing with Doris and Linsky's Service Station that I had to send out this kudos. Big up Linsky's! And thanks. By the way, Linsky's has been around since 1953, longer than me (not much, but still longer), so I'd say they have long proven themselves to many people to be a good, fair service station.

  • I am a proud mom of an almost 4 year old son and a grateful resident living in such a service oriented community - It is not too often that we get to recognize people who give us great customer service, and it is not often that the youngest of customers are made to feel so important. A couple of weeks ago my son experienced what great customer service is. My son, Thomas, received a bike for his birthday. When he got the bike, the tires were flat, and he couldn't ride it. My Aunt Annette took Thomas over to Linsky's Service Garage. Thomas walked his bike into the garage. Now, Steve could have told my aunt that he does not service bikes, or just pointed to the air and told them to figure it out, but He didn't do that. Instead, he gave my son a memory that will last a life time. He took Thomas in and showed him how to fill up the bike tires and let him push the buttons (something every toddler loves to do). They looked at the chain, they filled the tires and made sure that the bike was safe. Steve happily sent them on their way to enjoy the bike ride. Steve even invited Thomas for a bike ride with him later that day. Thank you Steve for taking the time out of your scheduled day to give a young boy some friendly service. Something he still talks about today.

  • Fixed the problem with my car which another repair shop supposedly fixed. This is where I will be taking my car in the future.
    -Joanne G.

  • We have been coming to Linsky's for years now, and we keep coming back. They have provided us with exemplary service. We had a van a few years back....the belt would fall right off at the hint of moisture. I can't tell you how many times they put that belt back on free of charge. They have provided us with every aspect of car maintenance, and at a competitive price. I recommend all of my friends to go here for any car maintenance needs.
