what couch?

What? I am just sitting here! Woof! Woof! Daddy says dogs aren’t allowed on the couch! Woof! That just makes me mad! Dogs should be able to sit wherever people sit! Woof! Daddy says this couch is for clients only! No dogs! Well I didn’t want to sit on that couch anyways! Woof! I am just minding my own business! Woof! Did you know that the back seat of a BMW X5 is just as comfortable as a couch? Woof! I should know because mommy lets me sit in hers! Woof! Woof! Come see me at Lone Star Bavarian and I bet daddy will let you sit on our couch!

why do dogs eat grass

I do so love grass!  I could eat grass all day long!  I only wish I was a cow!  Woof!  Daddy says that cows can’t work at Lone Star Bavarian, so I guess I am glad I’m not a cow!  Why do dogs eat grass?  Grass contains essential nutrients that a dog might crave, especially if they’re on a commercial diet.  So when I eat grass it is just to supplement my diet!  Woof! Woof!  Come see me at Lone Star and I will share my pasture with you!

How important is my OBD?

The EPA has regulations in place establishing requirements for on-board diagnostic (OBD) systems on light-duty vehicles and light-duty trucks beginning with the 1994 model year. The purpose of the OBD system is to assure proper emission control system operation for the vehicle’s lifetime by monitoring emission-related components and systems for deterioration and malfunction.

Vehicle manufacturers had to develop ways to diagnose problems generated by the new electronic hardware found under the hood. Thus, the first OBD systems were developed by auto manufacturers in the early 1980’s as electronic systems replaced mechanical systems.

The engines in today’s vehicles are largely electronically controlled, with sensors and actuators that sense the operation of specific components (e.g., the oxygen sensor) and actuate others (e.g., the fuel injector) to maintain optimal engine control. An on-board computer, known sometimes as a “powertrain control module” or an “engine control unit,” controls all of these systems. With proper software, the on-board computer is capable of monitoring all of the sensors and actuators to determine whether they are working as intended and to notify you when they are not working correctly. So make sure you don’t ignore your Check engine light because it is an important component in keeping your car running smoothly! And if your car has a warning light showing, bring it to Lone Star Bavarian to have it diagnosed

Mercedes anti lock brake maintenance

Daddy’s car says servicing BMW/Benz/Mini! What is a Benz?  Woof!  Daddy says it is a nickname for Mercedes-Benz.  Did you know that your Mercedes ABS brake system consists of a control unit, pump, relay, and speed sensors. It is a very reliable system that can give you years of trouble free service.  Woof!

The pulsation you feel in the pedal is from the anti-lock brake system detecting a wheel lock up condition and pulsating the fluid to the front calipers to correct the lock up condition. If this pulsation is occurring on gentle braking, when the wheels are not in fact locked up, the culprit is usually the front ABS sensors.  If you are noticing problems, bring your Mercedes to Lone Star Bavarian and we can service it for you!  In the meantime, there are a few steps you can take to keep your brakes trouble free.

  1. Make sure you change your brake fluid at recommended intervals.
  2. Clean your front Mercedes ABS brake sensors when you have your wheels off and are replacing your brakes and rotors.
  3. Check the wiring from the front ABS sensors to where it connects to the harness underneath the hood.

If you continue to have the pedal pulsating problem after cleaning the front ABS sensors it may be time to replace them.   Woof!  I hope to see you at Lone Star Bavarian for your next checkup!
