The Road to a Long-Lasting Vehicle

Most people buy a vehicle with the intent of keeping it for as long as possible. This is how you maximize enjoyment and minimize the cost of ownership. During the time of ownership, we discover that some cars we like a lot, and some not so much. But the common denominator is this…the better care a vehicle receives, the longer it will last!

A Broken Tire Can Shake Things Up

You jump in your car to do a quick errand, and you notice a steady vibration through the steering wheel. You’re sure you didn’t hit any potholes recently, and it sure wasn’t vibrating earlier today…

It could be a broken belt in your tire! Tires are made up of layers of material, many times made from different materials to give them particular characteristics. When a belt breaks, it changes the shape of the tire and weakens the area under the tread. In some cases, the tire might look completely normal!

For Best Performance, Do These Things

There’s no real secret to keeping your diesel truck performing at its best. Like all other internal combustion engines, they operate most efficiently if they have these three things: Air, fuel, and lubrication.

A clean air filter keeps dirt out of your engine, as the intake will pull air into the airbox with tremendous velocity. Factory air filters are more than adequate, but some prefer an aftermarket filter. Keep in mind that an aftermarket filter will also need servicing or replacement on a regular schedule.
