What’s a cabin filter?

This is something kind of new. Manufactures began installing cabin filters a number of years ago to filter the air blowing in your face from your A/C ducts. It actually performs two functions it does filter the air blowing at you but it also filters the air blowing through your entire A/C system keeping the internal components much cleaner helping them to last longer. This is a picture of a particularly dirty filter.

I’m heading north for Christmas, what are some of the things I should check in my car?

Always check tire pressure before a trip you can get better gas mileage and tire wear, all your fluids should be checked, make sure your antifreeze is good as well as the windshield washer fluid that can freeze too. Run through all you lights to be sure they are working correctly. Wiper blades are a good thing to look at they are one of those things you don’t need until you need them, then it’s to late to do anything about it. Stay hydrated and if you get sleepy please stop and rest your family is way more important then getting there an hour or so earlier. Be safe I hope you have a wonderful time. May god bless your trip.

My new car came with synthetic motor oil do I need to continue to use it?

Yes it is important to continue to use synthetic oil if your car came with it. Engines today have much closer tolerances and require certain lubricants to function properly, the engine in your new car will serve you for a good 200,000 miles if it is serviced on time and with the right lubricants.

My engine and trac lights both came on at the same time, do I have a traction control problem?

Not necessarily, if the control module picks up a failed engine control part many times this will turn off the traction control system so there won,t be any confusion in the network of systems allowing a malfunction in the traction system. When the failure is repaired in the engine the trac. light will turn off as well.
