The Importance of Cooling System Maintenance

What is a Cooling System?

The cooling system in your vehicle helps protect your engine from overheating. Specialized liquid coolant flows through the cooling systems to help keep the system at an ideal temperature, that can prevent it from getting too hot but also from getting too cold in the winter. 

This coolant has anti-corrosive properties to protect your engine from being damaged by the liquid. However, the coolant can become acidic over time and become harmful to the cooling system. As the coolant becomes more acidic, it can cause issues such as leaks and blockages.

How Often Do I Need to Change my Coolant?

It used to be that you would have to change the coolant every two years or 24,000 miles, but now as the technology for creating more efficient coolant advances, we recommend changing your coolant every five years or 500,000 miles - though this always depends on the make and manufacturer. 

Overall, it is crucial to have your cooling system maintenance every so often because the components and systems in cars theses day are so complex, and complex really means more expensive to repair or replace. So, if you want to avoid unnecessary expenses, make sure you are taking the proper steps to keep your vehicle running long and strong!

Fuel System Cleaning

What is fuel system cleaning and why do we need to do it? Weber Automotive has the answers.  Understanding Fuel System Cleaning  Regardless of what type of vehicle you drive, every gas or diesel manufacturer puts detergents inside your fuel system for cleaning. So, this is good because it guarantees your car is maintaining some fuel system cleaning component.  But over the last several years, a new type of fuel injection has been used to gain tremendous efficiency. This fuel injection is called direct injection. Direct injection, also called petrol direct injection for gasoline-fueled engines, creates a mixture by injecting fuel directly into the combustion chamber. In contrast, manifold fuel injection injects fuel into the intake manifold. Cleaning Your Fuel System  Keeping your fuel system clean allows your vehicle to be adequately maintained and keeps you safe on the road. You need to hook up a setup and a device that will push the cleaner right through the airstream. This allows any sludge or varnish built up in your fuel system to be washed out entirely.  If not correctly cared for, your fuel system will eventually need further repairs. For instance, you might need to take your engine apart, remove the cylinders, and clean out all the carbon built up over time. This would mean more money spent on car maintenance and that's something we all want to avoid. Discover More About Fuel System Cleaning  Our professionals at W
