Fuel injectors are a vital part of your vehicle’s regular maintenance regime. They fire concentrated bursts of atomized gasoline (or diesel) into your engine’s intake, where that burst mixes with the air and is ultimately, ignited by the spark plug. Your injectors need to spray a precise volume of fuel at precisely the right time for your engine to run its best. Even on the most mundane of vehicles, these injectors make a big difference in acceleration, and mileage.
A blown head gasket used to be a catastrophic failure for any engine. It causes your oil and coolant to mix, which causes your car to overheat, and can even cause lasting damage to the internals of your motor. You will know your head gasket is blown if: your car overheats often; if the coolant in your reservoir has turned milky or oily; or, if your car is blowing a white, sweet-smelling smoke. That’s because it is burning coolant and oil leaking into the cylinder.
There is nothing in your car that takes more daily abuse than your carpets. All winter you grind mud, snow, rain, and ice from your boots into it. In summer, there’s sand, road grime and dirt. You might take your shoes off every time you walk into the house, but that’s a lot less practical in your car.
We all listen to music in our cars. Whether it’s a long road trip or the daily commute, music helps you unwind after a long day at work and it can even quell those road-rage urges. When in the car, most of our time spent listening to music so why not install a proper car stereo unit to enhance your favourite tunes.
Scratches on your new car can be devastating. It’s all too easy to happen, and even the tiniest scratch sticks out like a sore thumb visually. A scratch remover kit can heal your car’s minor wounds and get it back to looking showroom in just a few minutes.
Nobody likes a dusty car. When you store your car for days or weeks on end in a garage it can become dirtier than if you’d driven it, courtesy of the swirling dust that settles over everything. True car lovers use a car cover to keep their rides looking fresh even after a long time sitting.
Your gearshift is one of the critical touchpoints in your car. Its feel and sensation in your hands has a massive emotional impact on your connection to your car. The best-looking shift knobs can set off your interior and increase the overall appeal of your car.
Roof racks are an excellent way to expand the cargo capacity of your car, truck, or SUV. Many cars come from the factory equipped with rails on the roof, ready for you to mount a rack system to. Other’s don’t, but there are aftermarket roof rail solutions, which allow you to safely use your roof as another cargo area.
Your truck bed is an open void, exposed to the wind, rain, prying eyes, and thieving hands. A tonneau cover adds a level of protection and security to your truck, while simultaneously cleaning up the styling out back.
There was a time when leather seats only appeared in high-end luxury and sports cars but these days, leather interiors are in everything from the Rolls Royce Cullinan to your Uber driver’s Toyota Corolla.
