A/C System repair and service
A/C System repair and service
Make sure your A/C system is ready to keep you cool all season long. While identifying a leaking or non-working system is simple, what needs to be done to fix the problem may not be as easy to determine. When you work on an air conditioning system, it's important to do the complete job to prevent future A/C troubles.

Cooling System Service
Cooling System Service
The cooling system is one of the most important components in a well-functioning diesel engine. Visiting your truck repair shop to properly maintain the cooling system is crucial to ensuring the engine runs properly and lasts a long time. In fact, engine coolant maintenance is just as important as an oil change. Some diesel engine owners wonder if the cooling system in their vehicle operates the same way as a cooling system in a regular gas engine. Effectively, the systems operate the same way, only the coolant condition in a diesel engine may even be more important than in a gasoline engine.

Electrical service
There are dozens of electrical components needed to route power in your vehicle's electrical system and these can vary greatly according to vehicle make, model and age. Your electrical system includes your vehicle's battery, alternator and starter. Many new vehicles also feature sophisticated computer systems that affect functions like steering, brakes, sensors, and more. All of these electrical components make it difficult to diagnose the cause of vehicle electrical problems, but most begin and end with your battery.

There are various factors that contribute to the wear and tear of your truck’s battery, charging, and starting systems. For example the frequent turning on and off of your automobile when running errands will cause more wear and tear than a daily commute to and from your workplace. Other factors that affect the wear and tear of the battery, charging, and starting system include weather conditions, overall mileage, truck age, and various automotive components like in-vehicle entertainment systems that cause an excessive electrical draw.

Diesel engine repair
Diesel engine repair
Most people know that diesel fuel is more efficient, but not everyone knows just how dramatic the difference is. The average gas engine has an efficiency rate of about 20 percent, meaning that only 20 percent of the gas actually goes toward making the engine work. A diesel engine, meanwhile, typically has an efficiency rate of 40 percent, making it twice as efficient as a gas one.

How Car Washes work
How Car Washes work
Let's face it. Most of us have a car or truck and we enjoy driving it, especially when it's shiny and clean. For this reason, car washes have remained popular ever since two Detroit men opened the first one, the Automated Laundry, in 1914. A lot of people wash their own cars at home, but the convenience of an automated car wash and relatively low cost can be hard to beat.
