How to Protect the Investment in Your Car

The technology of the automotive engine advanced from purely mechanical devices that need periodical adjustment to sophisticated systems controlled by computer.

The same can be said about practically all of the principal systems present in the cars today, from brakes to the transmission. In reality, to be an automotive technician nowadays, it is necessary to commit yourself to a life of training just to keep up with the technology improvements.

Lube for life

The engine is the heart of your car. Probably the most expensive part to repair, if something goes wrong. The modern electronic controls eliminated many adjustments we used to call “tweaks”. It iis now a complete checkup, where the major part of the work involved has to do with verifying the proper functions of the computer controlled systems.

although it is true the new cars work cleaner than ever, the engine and all the related control systems must be kept working exactly as they were planned. That will avoid the increase of engine emissions and a series of conducting issues.

Keep it legal

Today’s cars are faster than older models. With the tendency to reduce the size of the vehicle components, the components of the cooling system are required to do more than the equivalent older ones. 

Best thing you can do to keep your cooling system working with maximum efficiency is to replace the refrigerant according to the manufacturer recommendations. Although some of the newer antifreezes last longer, they always lose efficiency with time. When you replace the refrigerant periodically, you will make the corrosion inhibitors fresher and more efficient, helping to eliminate corrosion that accumulates inside the cooling system.
