The engine air filtration system aids in filtering the air's contaminants and helps to ensure the correct air/fuel mixture.

The Engine Air Filtration System may consist of the following components:
  • Engine Air Filter
  • Breather Element, if equipped
  • PCV Valve, if equipped

The Engine Air Filter reduces harmful dirt particles from entering the engine's air intake system where they may cause engine damage.

The Breather Element helps filter the air pulled into the engine crankcase by the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system or a metered orifice.

The PCV Valve or metered orifice regulates the flow of crankcase fumes into the intake manifold so they can be burned and help maintain proper cankcase pressure.

As engine air filtration components become restricted, airflow is reduced, which could lead to poor acceleration, reduced engine performance, reduced fuel economy, oil leaks as well as other issues.

As part of the Kwik Kar 20 point oil change service, we visually inspect the engine air filtration system components and recommend replacement, as necessary.

Air Conditioning Service includes:
  • Inspect system for leaks (hoses, couplings, valves, evaporator, etc.)
  • Recover any old refrigerant.
  • Remove refrigerant and store in an environmentally safe storage and recycling unit.
  • Evacuate the system - minimum 30 minutes.
  • Inspect and adjust drive belt tension.
  • Clean condenser fins if needed.
  • Remove moisture which can cause a chemical reaction with the refrigerant resulting in corrosion, contamination and eventual system failure.
  • Test compressor operation.
  • Fill with proper O.E. amount of refrigerant (refrigerant extra).
  • Pressure test and check for leaks.
  • Check output temperature.
  • Check proper operations of controls, blower motor and cooling fan (engine).
  • Check antifreeze (engine coolant).

Symptoms of a car that's out of alignment:
  • Excessive or uneven tire wear
  • Steering wheel pulls to the left or right
  • Feeling of looseness or wandering
  • Steering wheel vibration or shimmy
  • Steering wheel is not centered when car is moving straight ahead
Benefits of a car that's properly aligned:

Reduced Tire Wear

Improper alignment is a major cause of premature tire wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of miles to tire life.

Better Gas Mileage

Gas mileage increases as rolling resistance decreases. Total alignment sets all four wheels parallel which, along with proper inflation, minimizes rolling resistance.

Improved Handling

Does your car pull to one side, does the steering wheel vibrate, do you constantly have to move the steering wheel to keep your car traveling straight ahead? Many handling problems can be corrected by total alignment. With all the system components aligned properly, road shock is more efficiently absorbed for a smoother ride.

Safer Driving

A suspension system inspection is part of our alignment procedure. This allows us to spot worn parts before they cause costly problems.

Battery Maintenance includes:
  • A full analysis of your battery's condition, including its state of charge and ability to hold a charge.
  • An inspection and analysis of the car's starting and charging system, including the starter, the alternator and the voltage regulator.
  • A cleaning of the battery's connection and cable ends, as well as an application of corrosion protection.
  • Installation of a new battery if purchased from a Kwik Kar.

Brake Flush Service includes:
  • We inspect the entire brake system for leaks
  • Master cylinder corrosion
  • Worn pneumatic parts, harmful varnish build-up
  • Broken or rusted bleeder valves, worn rotors and drums and air in the brake lines.
  • Old brake fluid is replaced with DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluid.

The result will be a longer lasting, more efficient and safer braking system.

These are the most common signs that can suggest a potential brake system problem that should be addressed immediately. Any other sights, sounds or sensations in the brake system that seem out of the ordinary should also be taken into consideration. Most times, brake system problems will only escalate if disregarded.

What we do:
  • Brake pad replacement
  • Servicing rotors, replacing brake cylinders.
  • Addressing Anti-Lock Brake System issues
  • Additionally, we can perform routine maintenance as suggested by your vehicle's manufacturer.

We provide full repair service for all your vehicle's brake components.

Advantages of Cabin Filter Replacement:
  • Can block 99.5% of the pollutants entering your vehicle.
  • The electrostatically charged filter works like a magnet to stop pollen, dust and other airborne contaminants in their tracks.
  • Have yours changed today and breathe more easily.

What We Do:
  • Remove and inspect the fill plug.
  • Remove and inspect the drain plug.
  • Flush and vacuum the old gear oil out of the gearbox.
  • Reinstall the drain plug.
  • Fill the differential with up to 5 pints of new gear oil
  • Reinstall the fill plug.
Why We Do It:
  • Helps protect against bearing and gear failure.
  • Prevents abnormal wear on gears due to poor lubrication.
  • Prevents gear overheating.

Based on the information and instructions stored in the computer program, commands are then sent to three primary systems:

  • Ignition System.
  • Fuel System.
  • Emission Control System.

and can ultimately illuminate a check engine? light. About 85% of vehicles on the road have either a check engine light on or some other safety issue such as a broken license-plate light, loose gas cap, a worn spark plug, poor emissions, low transmission fluid or cracked hoses and belts, according to the Car Care Council, a nonprofit consumer-education organization.

The first step to determine the problem behind an engine light is hooking up a scan tool or code reader to an On-Board Diagnostics connector that usually sticks out from under the driver's side of the dashboard.
