You can enjoy the luxuries of operating a modern car. Federal Exhaust Emission and Fuel Economy regulations demand that your vehicle be properly equipped with electronic engine control systems to curb carbon emissions and increase your fuel's efficiency.
You'll love the latest technology in your vehicle. Bring it to us for your regular maintenance services and receive a computerized analysis of your car's control computer. This will help us to understand your engine and ensure your car continues to function correctly.
Let our professional staff of certified technicians choose the right battery for your vehicle and lifestyle. Your car's electrical system is the power behind everything in your car, from the ignition to accessories like your radio. The electrical system, therefore, is powered by the engine.
When your car's ignition is off, the battery is what provides necessary power to the rest of the system. This also comes in handy during the start-up phase. It's also a great supplement during periods of high demand while driving.
Your charging system is the heart of your electrical system. This is made out of 3 key parts: the belt-driven alternator, multiple electrical circuits, and a voltage regulator.
The alternator is what supplies power to the electrical system and recharges the battery after you've started the car. As you can imagine, the voltage regulator does indeed regulate the voltage, which keeps it within the operating range of your electrical system.
When it comes to your vehicle, the starting system actually consumes more power than any other component. It consists of three parts, which work in tandem: the ignition switch, the starter relay, and the starter motor.
The ignition switch controls the starter, which activates the starter motor, which turns in your engine until the car turns on, so you can be on your way!
You should consider taking advantage of the Emissions Testing Program to ensure your vehicle emissions stay within proper limits. This testing program is used across many states and areas, as required by the Environmental Protection Agency to improve air quality.
Some states run decentralized programs, where emissions can be tested at a local repair facility, like in our case. States may run hybrid programs using both centralized and decentralized test stations.
The latest trend in the industry is to incorporate the use of second generation on-board diagnostics into the program, which may eliminate the need for tailpipe emissions testing.
As a heads up, the best way to keep your vehicle acting friendly to the environment is by performing regularly scheduled maintenance services, rather than waiting for a problem to arise. You'll save yourself buckets of cash by going down the routine service route, too!
