Keep Your Orlando Car Breathing Free: Engine Air Filter

Hey Orlando - this is something really amazing: For every gallon of gas your vehicle burns, it uses 12,000 gallons of air. All of that air has to be filtered to keep your engine clean. That's like a hundred gallons of air every block! The engine air filter is just another example of a very important but inexpensive part that has to do a tremendous amount of work. And when it works, everything goes well. But, when it doesn't, well, it can lead to problems. Of course, your vehicle manufacturer recommends how often to change your air filter.

Tracking True in Orlando: Wheel Alignment

Of course, if you've been in an accident, you should get y ... read more
