Tips & Advice
What is Performance and Dyno Tuning?
Dyno Tuning is a new kind of tuning experience.
Repeatable driving scenarios, unlike highway testing for tuning purposes where it is virtually impossible to replicate exact conditions. Dyno Tunes includes detailed environmental controls – Atmospheric pressure, air temperature, ambient temperature, simulated speeds.
Dyno tuning measures engine output, including horsepower, torque and air fuel mixture. Your technician can adjust the air fuel mixture and timing to preferred settings based on your vehicle type. This type of tuning can occur for different engine loads and conditions. It is a special tune-up that enhances your ride and increases the efficiency and performance of your vehicle.

Is it really necessary to replace my timing belt at the manufacturer’s recommended interval?
YES. The failure of a timing belt in many cars can result in major engine damage. The cost of repairing an engine with a broken timing belt is much greater than the cost of a timing belt replacement.
What does it mean if my “check engine” or “service engine soon” light comes on?
There are many sensors and computerized components that manage your vehicle’s engine performance and emissions. When one of these fails, the “check engine” light is illuminated. Although your car may seem to run fine, it is important to have the issue addressed to prevent long-term problems or failure of emission tests.
What should I do if my car starts to overheat?
This is a very serious problem – if your car overheats for too long, you can damage your engine. As soon as possible, find a safe place to pull off the road and shut off the engine! Do not attempt to check the fluid level in the radiator as it can burn you. The best thing to do is have your car towed to a repair shop.
How to make sure my car battery has a good electrical connection?
Battery cables and terminals should be cleaned and inspected to make sure they provide a good electrical connection.
When should I replace my car’s fuel filter?
To help ensure dependable, trouble-free performance, replace your car’s fuel filter approximately every 30,000 miles or as recommended in your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
When should I change my spark plugs?
For maximum fuel economy and peak engine performance, your spark plugs should be replaced every 30 months or 30,000 miles, unless your vehicle is equipped with 100,000-mile platinum-tipped spark plugs.
What should I do when I need to replace a burned out fuse?
Always replace burned-out fuses with ones of the same amperage (printed on the fuse) and note that if a fuse continues to “blow,” you should have the circuit checked professionally by one of our technicians for defects.
