How do you stop Carbon build up?

You cannot stop Carbon Build Up completely. You can help to reduce the amount of build up by using top tier fuels and premium grade engine oil. Changing your engine oil at the proper interval will help reduce Carbon Build Up. Your engine may also need an Induction Cleaning Service to help remove Carbon deposits in the intake valves and combustion chambers. This cleaning should be done on a regular basis to keep your engine in its best condition. Give us a call and let us take care of you.

My engine is making a popping noise

Your engine could be making a popping noise due to a broken spark plug. On certain engine's it was a common breakdown. When the spark plug breaks it will shoot up out of the spark plug hole, when it does this is will damage the ignition coil and possible other components. To fix this we have to repair the spark plug hole that is damaged. We will also recommend a complete tune up with all spark plugs, ignition coil boots unless it has been done recently.  Give us a call and let us take care of you.  Happy Adventures,  Heather

When should my car fan come on?

When should my car fan come on?

Your engine fan should come on once your engine comes to operating temperature - the temperature it typically runs at - usually it comes to operating temperature then goes a little over, at that point the fan will come on to keep your engine at it's correct temperature. If you think your fan is coming on to frequently give us a call and let us make sure your engine is operating properly.  Happy Adventures, Heather
