Coolant flushes are particularly important. No matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive, your cooling system is an essential aspect of maintaining the reliability of your vehicle.
As your vehicle ages, it not only gains sentimental value but a number of maintenance measures arise as well. Trucks from previous decades have the potential to keep their value and functionality for many years. Here are some tips from C H Auto Repair to keep your older truck running for a prolonged time.
Your vehicle's engine needs clean air to burn the fuel – and it needs a lot of clean air. In fact, a typical vehicle needs about 216,000 gallons of air for every tank of gas. All that air passes through a filter that catches the dust and dirt. Eventually, the filter gets completely full, and because the filter can only hold so much, dirt starts getting through. At C H Auto Repair in La Vernia, we ensure you get the best air quality in your vehicle and explain the process of where this dirty air is going to our area drivers.
At C H Auto Repair in La Vernia, we know that a huge part of the ride quality of your car, truck, or SUV is how well it keeps road and engine noises out of the passenger compartment. Few things are more annoying on a long commute or road trip than the drone of tires on pavement, the constant sound of your car battling the air outside, loud semi-trucks, and so on.
