Has your car been sitting a while?

Has your car been sitting a while?

While some people have been out about or have continued to work during the stay-at-home order, many people have been stuck at home. That means cars have been stuck at home as well. Like humans, cars (and trucks) do not sit well. Vehicles are designed to be moving, having fluid moving through their systems to keep everything lubricated and in good condition. Charge for battery and the various computers can also be an issue with long term sitting. In some vehicles, even one week can be a problem. If you are able to get your car out and drive it around the block once a week, it is certainly better than no movement at all. It would be even better if you are able to take a short drive somewhere, while still keeping within the health constraints of you and your family. If you encounter any issues when you go out to start your vehicle, feel free to give us a call. We can absolutely help you out, even if all you need is a quick, no-contact-jumpstart. Remember, you aren’t ... read more

Auto Videos for Hanover Park Drivers: Making a Battery Last Longer

Auto Videos for Hanover Park Drivers: Making a Battery Last Longer

One thing all Hanover Park drivers can do to extend the life of their battery is to keep it clean. A greasy, dirty battery holds in damaging heat. Same goes for removing corrosion from the terminals. Kamphaus AutoCare and Emission can help maintain your battery. Allowing your battery to be deeply depleted – like from using your headlights when the engine is off – is very dangerous to your battery. Most automotive batteries can only take that about 10 times before they are ruined. Also, making sure you have a full charge every month or so extends battery life. Either an extended drive at freeway speeds or using a battery charger will preserve your battery’s ability to hold a full charge.

Give Your Engine Clean Fuel With A New Fuel Filter From Kamphaus AutoCare and Emission

Your pickup requires plenty of clean fuel to run. If your fuel contains contaminants, your fuel injectors will eventually become clogged up. When this happens, your pickup engine may not get the proper amount of fuel at the correct pressure to run at peak performance. This hurts fuel economy and performance as you drive around Elk Grove Village. It can also lead to the buildup of harmful deposits on valves and in the combustion chamber. That’s why all vehicles, including pickups, come equipped with a fuel filter somewhere between the engine and the fuel tank. The job of the filter is to clean out little pieces of dirt and contamination. The filter captures the contaminants and keeps them out of the fuel stream. Of course, like all filters, it will eventually get clogged up and need to be replaced at Kamphaus AutoCare and Emission in Hanover Park . If your fuel filter is clogged, the pickup engine can’t get ... read more
