Your oil filter removes contaminants from motor and transmission oil. Keeping your oil clean allows for continuous flow so your engine and transmission is protected by the viscosity of clean oil. Our technicians change the oil filter with every oil change service, to avoid the new oil from becoming contaminated. Dirty oil filters lead to poor performance, early engine wear and if bad enough, engine failure.

These highly efficient filters remove contaminants in the fuel, including rust, dust and grit. They protect your fuel injectors from corrosion and are significant in protecting the longevity of your engine. Have the fuel filter changed on a regular basis to protect car parts and maintain engine performance. If your filter gets dirty and is not replaced, fuel flow is affected. This means the fuel pump works harder causing problems when you try to start your car, or with acceleration. Contaminants have an abrasive action on car parts and can damage fuel pumps and injectors. Since these are expensive parts to replace, changing your fuel filter at regular maintenance appointments can save you money on car repairs.
Depending on the make and model of your car, truck or SUV, air filters come in panels, cylinders or are circular. Clean air filters protect your engine from sand, dust, debris and even insects and they provide a good mixture of fuel and air for optimal performance. A clean air filter can save on fuel costs, and contribute to engine performance.
