Don't Miss a Detail!

Don't Miss a Detail!

Average individuals commonly confuse car detailing with car washing. While both serve to clean your vehicle, the difference between the two types of services is very important. A car wash may remove the dirt, dust, salt, and grime that gets stuck on your vehicle's exterior, but it never involves cleaning the inside. On the other hand, a car detail involves a deeper cleaning of both the exterior and interior of your car. It is intended to make your vehicle look as new as possible from the inside out.

What Kind of Dashboard Warning Lights Are There?

What Kind of Dashboard Warning Lights Are There?

Aside from hearing from a professional tech, your dashboard is the number one source when it comes to getting the latest updates on your vehicle's condition. Your dashboard will remind you of maintenance services, and it can also warn you of trouble. There are six essential warning symbols you should know about and never ignore: Battery Light The electrical fault light, or battery light, is outlined in the shape of a car battery. When it is up and bright on your dash, there is something wrong with your electrical system that may include the battery, alternator, or starter. Tire Pressure Light The tire pressure light, also known as the TPMS symbol, is another one of those lights you should keep an eye out for. The emblem resembles a tire with an exclamation point, and it signifies that one or more of your tires are underinflated. Driving on low-pressure tires is extremely dangerous. Not only are you prematurely wearing your tires, but it can also lead to deadly vehicle accidents ... read more

Don't Purchase A Used Car Unless You Get a Pre-Purchase Inspection!

Don't Purchase A Used Car Unless You Get a Pre-Purchase Inspection!

Buying a pre-owned vehicle from another person can often be a blind shot. While the seller (or dealer) may express that the vehicle is in great shape, it is difficult to tell its condition just by looking at its exterior. There could be an internal issue growing under the hood that may cost you hundreds or thousands to repair shortly, an expense that you aren't prepared for. This is why prospective buyers (and sellers) of used motor vehicles in Kapolei, HI, should prioritize a pre-purchase inspection.   You may be wondering, "What even is a pre-purchase car inspection?" and what it includes. A pre-purchase inspection is when you bring a used vehicle into our shop for a complete inspection. Our expert team will conduct a multi-point vehicle inspection and test multiple systems for their basic function. We put together a report for you that will include all the car's major parts' conditions and outline what repairs or services we feel that the vehicle will ne ... read more

What Are the Symptoms of a Bad Oxygen Sensor?

What Are the Symptoms of a Bad Oxygen Sensor?

An automotive oxygen sensor detects the presence of oxygen in the exhaust gases. The information is used to determine the number of parameters essential for combustion engine efficiency and emission control. Its role is to control combustion engine efficiency and emissions and ensure that appropriate fuel is delivered to the cylinders.   What Is an Oxygen Sensor Inside of a Vehicle? An automotive oxygen sensor is a piece of equipment you find inside modern cars, trucks, and motorcycles. It prevents the so-called knock from occurring, which can happen when an engine misfires or detonates too soon before it has finished burning its mixture of air and fuel. The sensor prevents knocking by detecting sufficient levels of oxygen present in the exhaust gases exiting from the cylinder head, and if there aren't, the system shuts down.   Oxygen sensors are mounted in the exhaust pipe to monitor the efficiency of combustion in an engine. Their job is to replace ... read more
