General Maintenance

Your car's engine is made up of hundreds of complex components working simultaneously to ensure that your vehicle starts and runs properly.

Over time, however, these components can wear out, resulting in a loss of performance and fuel economy.

The nature of an engine tune-up has changed considerably over the years, but the basics of how a gasoline engine works have not.

Clean gas and air need to be driven to the vehicle's cylinders where combustion initiated by a spark plug creates the power necessary to move a heavy vehicle. 

Fuel filters & injectors

Clogged fuel injectors, dirty air and fuel filters, worn out oil, and corroded spark plugs can all decrease engine performance and contribute to decreased gas mileage and performance.

That's why we examine your vehicle's air filter when you stop in and recommend that you follow manufacturer's recommendations for replacing key components like fuel filters, PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) valves, and spark plugs when they are no longer working at maximum efficiency.

A standard tune-up, or spark plug replacement, done at the suggested maintenance interval will make an engine easier to start, improve fuel economy, lower emissions, and restore lost power.

Another service, which is commonly overlooked, is the cleaning of fuel injectors and the fuel intake system. Our computer trained technicians can perform a fuel system cleaning that will remove these deposits and help your vehicle maximize its performance and gas mileage capabilities. Cleaning these will help your vehicle's engine run properly.

Regular maintenance of your vehicle's fuel ignition system is the key to reliability, fuel efficiency, and effective engine performance. Whether you need to fix a fuel system problem after it occurs, or you want to prevent one from happening in the future, call us today to schedule a free estimate!
