Preventative maintenance saves vehicle owners money in the end. It might seem as if it’s designed to put money in an auto mechanics pocket, but the auto mechanic isn’t the one who maps out the preventative maintenance schedule; the manufacturer does. It works with automotive engineers to determine what needs to be done when to ensure the vehicle always runs at its best. Kinetech Motor Werkes utilizes preventative maintenance to save its customers money every day. Here’s how.
Let’s step away from auto maintenance and repair for just a moment and have some fun. The Autobahn is a stretch of highway throughout Germany that allows drivers to cut loose and push their vehicles to their limits. Known for no speed limits and plenty of open space, just about everyone here at Kinetch Motor Werkes wants to drive it someday. What if you could drive it tomorrow? What would you need to know? Here are some surprising rules enforced on the Autobahn that show it isn’t a total free-for-all.
Anyone familiar with the BMW performance scene has heard of the German tuning company Manhart. Manhart is known for their off the wall builds, such as the “MH2 630”, which is a highly modified M2, utilizing the S55 motor from the M4.Continue Reading
Walnut Blasting and BG Induction Cleaning services are offered at Kinetech Motor Werkes! What is a De-Coke you may ask? De-Coking is a process that is taken to remove heavy carbon build-up from intake valves and from inside the combustion chamber. Cars require oxygen, spark and fuel to run. With modern Direct Injection engines, as you put your foot on the gas pedal, the car sprays gas into the combustion chamber of the engine, at that point the spark plugs ignite the gas which makes the car run. Carbon is a byproduct of this reaction. Carbon DOES INTERFERE with the vehicles normal operation and combustion as it alters the compression ratio, operation temperature and sensor readings. Carbon builds up and coats the intakes valves, combustion chamber and other parts of the internals of the motor. This can restrict the engines ability to breathe and effect the vehicles power.Continue Reading
Over the river and through the woods was more dangerous back when cars had crummy bias-ply tires, rear-wheel drive and ordinary brakes.
If something goes wrong with your car and you don’t know much about car repair, then it’s time to go to the shop and find out what’s wrong. However, lots of people are understandably worried about getting ripped off—mechanics are pretty good at detecting when a customer doesn’t know anything about cars. To avoid this, it’s a good idea to narrow down the possibilities of what’s going on inside your car.
The warning lights on your dashboard are the most obvious starting point. Yet the most common, the Check Engine light, can be utterly confusing because it can cover problems ranging widely in severity. Others, like the engine temperature light, tire pressure light, or oil light are more straightforward to decipher. Regardless of what lights up, never ignore it. Delaying a diagnosis and repair could lead to even bigger problems down the road.
