Comments Off on What does it mean if my “check engine” or service engine light comes on?
There are many sensors and computerized components that manage your vehicles engine performance and emissions. When one of these fail, the “check engine” light is illuminated. Although your car may seem to be running fine, it is important to have the issue addressed to prevent any long term problems.
Some of the reasons your check engine light would be on:

Comments Off on Can I replace a fuse that keeps blowing with a larger one?
Not only will using a fuse with more amps not solve the problem, it is likely to cause a whole host of other, more significant problems. Fuses are present to protect the components of the electrical system. Rather than destroying the circuit when there is a surge of power, the fuse blows to protect it. If the fuse keeps blowing, it is an indication that there is a problem in the electrical system. If you use a fuse with the wrong amperage, the fuse won’t blow as intended, damaging the circuit and resulting in a much larger repair bill. Rather than risk blowing the circuit, take the car to a repair shop to determine what is causing the fuse to repeatedly blow.
Did you know your driving habits can affect how your engine oil performs? Short distances, such as city stop and go driving can cause condensation to form in an engine that doesn’t reach operating temperature. This can cause particles in the oil to become deposits in the engine, which can build up over time. These deposits restrict the flow of oil and can prevent it from doing its job well.
As part of your preventative maintenance schedule an engine flush can clear out these deposits to open narrow oil passages clogged by gunk that’s been floating around in the oil. Releasing these deposits and allowing oil to flow freely saves wear and tear on the engine and keeps p [...]
