Ah Choo! Why March is the Best Time to Clean Your Air Filter

Ah Choo! Why March is the Best Time to Clean Your Air Filter

  Like people, cars need to breathe clean air. Because dirt, dust, and pollen can be taxing on your engine, it's critical to check your car's air filter. It's often neglected even though it's one of the easiest and cheapest repairs you can do on your car.   When your air filter is dirty, air can't get to the engine and this causes much more fuel to be used up. Keeping away the dirt and debris that causes wear and tear will prolong the lifespan of your engine and the amount of cash you fork over at the gas station.   Internal combustion engines require air to perform. Fuel doesn't burn without oxygen to give that igniting force that allows the engine to get powered up. The air needs to be as clean as possible for your engine to run optimally. This is why a clean air filter is essential. The filter is made of porous, paper-like material that catches and prevents dirt from reaching the engine while allowing the clean air to pass through.   ... read more

Everything You Should Know About Diesel Car and Light Diesel Truck Repair Service in Florissant, Missouri

Everything You Should Know About Diesel Car and Light Diesel Truck Repair Service in Florissant, Missouri

Did you know that standard gasoline engines are only about 20% efficient? That means that only 20% of what you put into your tank moves the car, as opposed to getting burned up or lost somewhere else along the pipeline. With diesel engines, it’s 40% efficiency. Which may not seem like a lot, but consider that it is twice as efficient as its gasoline counterparts. That’s just one of the reasons why diesel cars are a smart choice for many drivers.   The team at Gary’s Auto Service is familiar with all of the problems that light diesel cars and trucks can have, especially the most common ones. Diesel vehicles are prone to have extra smoke and noise because of the viscosity of diesel fuel. For the same reason, frequent oil changes are imperative, or else soot and other contaminants collect in the fuel. Black exhaust, hard starts, oil oxidization, and defective glow plugs are also common for diesel cars and light diesel trucks. When you come to Gary’s Auto Se ... read more
