By-products of corrosion damage, as well as rust and scale, clog the passageways that conduct the water through the radiator and choke off the flow. This may result in an overheated engine that may be … Continued Learn More

Oil Change

In engines, there is inevitably some exposure of the oil to products of internal combustion, and microscopic particles accumulate in the oil during operation. Also the rubbing of metal engine parts inevitably produces some microscopic metallic particles from the wearing of the surfaces. Such particles could circulate in the oil and grind against the part … Continued Learn More
