What is a GDI service?

On modern "Gas Direct Injected" or "GDI" vehicles, maintenance on fuel injection systems has become more important than ever. Due to the combustion of your engine, carbon builds up on valves, injector tips, and pistons. The GDI service will restore engine performance along with maintaining smooth idle. Not only will you feel a difference in throttle response, but will also prevent carbon build up to reduce the possibility of engine faults.#GDI #fuelinjection #inductionservice

What is TPMS?

What is "TPMS"? TPMS stands for "Tire Pressure Monitoring System". TPMS is a warning system indicating to the driver when a tire is significantly under-inflated. Beginning in September 2007, all new light duty vehicles sold in the U.S. are mandated to be equipped with TPMS. Most people ignore their tires, yet tires are undoubtedly a critical safety component. A tire can lose up to half of its pressure without appearing to be underinflated. The small battery operated sensors are located inside of the tire to prevent drivers operating their vehicle with unsafe low tire pressure

Why is my tire warning light on?

With temperatures swinging in the 18966 area a common concern for drivers is a tire pressure warning light on the dashboard. Any time this light comes on you should check your tires ASAP. Some vehicle will have the ability to display individual tire pressures to indicate the problem area. Many times the issue is as simple as a minor pressure adjustment. A drop in pressure as little as 3 PSI can trigger the warning system. If you do find that your tire pressures have not been adjusted since the heat of the summer you should check to see if you are due for service heading into the winter months.#tirepressure #warninglight #tpm

What is a cabin air filter?

Your car is equipped with an interior air filter just like your home. This "cabin filter" cleans the air that you breathe. It removes pollen, dirt and debris out of the car when the heating or air conditioning is running.
