Conduct regular vehicle maintenance and you’ll avoid potentially costly breakdowns and extend the life of your car.

What's the Secret Behind the Numbers on the Interstate Signs?

If you've ever driven west on Interstate 80 through Nebraska, you've seen one of the flattest and emptiest roads in America ... and you probably had some time to ponder life's most important questions. For example, why is the highway called "I-80," anyway? And why do some interstate names have one, two or three digits?

Regularly check and replace dirty air filters. An air filter that is clogged with dirt, dust and bugs chokes off the air and creates a rich mixture that causes the engine to lose power. Replacing a clogged air filter will improve your car’s performance and acceleration, but not miles per gallon. The air filter should be inspected at each oil change, and replaced annually or when restricted, torn, water or oil-soaked. Call us to make an appointment.
