Whats a cabin air filter, and where is it located in my car?

Most cars today have a cabin air filer, this is  fairly new  in the automotive industry and it works great. It filters the air that is blowing in your face from your A/C and wow do these filters get nasty. they are usually located behind the glove box in the duct work, it needs to be replaced about once a year depending on where you drive.

I had jury duty today, wow

I understand how important this is and I have no problem serving, this is one of the great parts of our justice system. Today they had a trial that was going to last three to four weeks, I can’t believe how many people were able to stay that long for a trial, I’m glad but a lot of people were able to, I don’t think I have taken three weeks in a row off work in 40 years. How do they do it?  Anyway I was released and am back at work.

Does your auto service center check for reprogramming updates for you car?

With all the electronic modules in our cars today the manufacture continues to provide updates to either repair something or change the way a module operates. These updates almost always improve the way your cars systems function, and in many cases can repair something you may have your car in for. So at Poirier’s we always check for updates and perform them first to keep your car running at peak performance.

After market or dealer parts which are best?

You might think dealer parts are the way to go and in a lot of cases you would be right, but the after market can many times improve on parts and make them better than the factory part. Often times we see the same part fail over and over again because the dealer has a stock pile of the them and has to use them up. After we check the quality of the after market part and find it to be the same or better than the dealer part, I have no problem using them and saving my customers some money.  Like anything else there are also poor quality after market parts remember you get what you pay for. Don’t be afraid to ask your service center what kind of parts they use.

I have a flat tire and the shop says they can not fix it, because of the location.

Tire repair has become a big deal these days. We used to plug tires no matter where the nail was but as it turns out the plugs were coming out and a tire would deflate very fast and put you in a bad situation.So we went to patching only and this is a great repair as long as the hole is more in the middle of the tire, if the hole is on the edge the tire would need to be replaced to keep you safe.
