Does your engine have a miss? Is your vehicle misfiring or hesitating? Does it shut off at stop signs or fail to start consistently? Has your fuel economy dropped for no apparent reason? If so, it may be time to get a tune-up, or to have your air filter and fuel filters replaced.
It is important to care for your vehicle the right way, and at Fairfax Auto Repair, we can provide the service you car, truck or SUV needs. From simple tune-ups and filter replacements to complex engine and transmission repairs, our expert technicians can handle it all.
Tune-Ups for Better Fuel Efficiency and Superior Performance
When was the last time you had your vehicle tuned up? If you cannot remember your last tune-up, chances are you are long overdue for this essential service.
Far from costing you money, regular tune-ups can actually save you a lot of cash. When your vehicle is freshly tuned up, it will run more efficiently, and that can mean greater fuel economy, helping you squeeze more miles out of every gallon of gas you buy. In the long run, this increase in fuel economy can more than pay for the price of that much-needed tune-up.
Air filter Checks and Replacements
If you have noticed a new hesitation in your vehicle or a sudden drop in fuel economy, your air filter may be to blame. The air filter removes impurities from the air and stops them from entering your vehicle, but these filters have a limited lifespan.
Driving with a clogged or dirty air filter will reduce the efficiency of your vehicle and reduce its fuel economy. Over the long term, that blocked air filter can also harm your vehicle, so it is important to have it replaced right away. Fairfax Auto Repair can check your air filter, replace it if necessary and help improve the performance and fuel economy of your vehicle.
Fuel Filter Replacement
The fuel system in your vehicle has many component parts, including the fuel filter. The fuel filter’s job is to remove impurities from the gas you buy, protecting your engine, fuel injectors and other critical components.
If your fuel economy has dropped or your vehicle is not running right, a blocked or dirty fuel filter could be to blame. At Fairfax Auto Repair, we can check your fuel filter, replace it if necessary and let you drive away with confidence.
