Let’s Talk About Car Air Filters…

Posted by on Nov 16, 2016 in Junk My Car Queens | 0 comments

Just like our body, cars need air filters to protect the inside and to function well. Dust, dirt and other debris can cause damage when entering the engine cylinder. The job of the air filter is to strain all the unwanted from entering the engine to ensure proper and optimal performance. However, examining and replacing the air filter is often times overlooked and just being paid attention when the damage or the problem has been done.

But it is not most of the time that you really need to replace it. Sometimes, the simplest and easiest thing is the most efficient and effective – check and clean it. It is not bad to replace it frequently as it won’t harm your vehicle, but you should be ready to spend. Your wallet should be prepared for the expenses.

When to replace your air filter?

  • The standard replacement is every 15,000 to 30,000 miles.
  • If you are driving in dusty roads, it is safe to frequently check the air filter even if you still haven’t reached the said range.
  • Air filters vary per manufacturer. Check the manufacturer’s schedule maintenance to know the best time to replace it. Though it looks clean, it may become brittle overtime.

Common symptoms that your car filter needs cleaning or changing

  • Decrease in gas mileage. When the filter is clogged, the amount of air entering the engine also decreases. As a result, the engine needs to work harder thus using more gasoline to run efficiently.
  • Fouled spark plugs

What can you benefit with clean air filter?

  • Longer life for your car’s engine
  • Improved gas mileage
  • Lower emission
  • Better acceleration
  • Will save you from too many expenses caused by damages in vital parts of your car due to dirt, dust, and debris.

It pays to check your car air filter regularly. It is easy and will definitely save your time and money from the hustle and bustle of complications caused by dirty and clogged air filters.

It’s all about Tires… Maintenance and Proper Care

Posted by on Jul 15, 2016 in Junk My Car Queens | 0 comments

We all know that tires are one of the most “should be well taken care of” parts of a car. Not only it will save your life in the road and provide you a better ride but also will save your pocket with future major expenses.

Here are the reasons why you should (if you haven’t done so) pay attention in taking care of your car’s tire:

  1. It will help you save money
    Regular maintenance, rotation, inspection and alignment can help you save money. These activities can extend the life of your tires allowing you to not buy often. Also, checking the tire’s pressure is essential. Do you know that under inflated tire wear out faster? On the other hand, overinflated tire has a tendency to blow out easily.
  2. It will help you save money on fuel
    Proper inflation pressure is a must. When your tire is under inflated, your car is using excess fuel. Not only that. Since under inflated tires have higher rolling resistance, your engine needs to double work to move your vehicle.
  3. It ensures safety
    Who would have wanted to get engaged in a car accident? No one but it actually happens, right? And the common reasons are poor tire tread, exceeding the load capacity and not being aware of your car tires condition. As a tip, don’t be shy to use your spare tire especially if you notice that something is wrong with one of your tires.

So the good question now is, “How to take care of your tires?”
It’s simple and easy. RMA or the Rubber Manufacturers Association advises you to remember this: “Be Tire Smart – Play Your PART (Pressure, Alignment, Rotation, Tread)”.

  • Pressure – As mentioned a while ago, proper inflation pressure is a must. It should not be under or overinflated.
  • Alignment – Have a tire dealer check your tire to see if your car is properly aligned.
  • Rotation – It is the process of removing your tires and move to a different position. The reason for this is to make sure that tires wear evenly so they can last longer. Unless specified in your vehicle’s owner’s manual, rotation should be done approximately 5000-8000 miles.
  • Tread – One way to see if your tire tread is healthy is by using a penny. Simply insert the penny with Lincoln’s head upside down and facing you. Now, if you can see all Lincoln’s head, then you should replace your tire immediately.

We had a saying that prevention is better than cure or better be safe than sorry and those apply here. Why take the risk of having a ride with a poor tire if you can replace it in the first place? If you worry about the expenses, you really don’t need to buy a new tire. You can also consider salvage yards. Just like with us, we have different types of wheels just right for your car. And we guarantee you that they are safe and sound to use. If you wanted to check for yourself, drop us by. We are conveniently located in Jamaica and Queens. We also have cheap used auto parts, just in case you needed one. So, see yah!
