Keeping your toddlers and babies safe while driving is important.

6 Signs Your Vehicle Needs a Fuel Injector Cleaning

6 Signs Your Vehicle Needs a Fuel Injector Cleaning

Keeping your vehicle's fuel injectors clean ensures your car, SUV, or truck continues to get you where you need to efficiently without enduring engine damage. These components deliver fuel to the engine at the right time and of the right amount to ensure optimal performance and fuel economy. They disperse the fuel through nozzles, and they can get dirty over time. And it can take as little as one filthy nozzle to compromise your car's overall performance.    What Are the Signs of Dirty Fuel Injectors? Lowered fuel economy - Since your injectors are directly related to fuel consumption, bad injectors can seriously bring down your MPG. If you're getting fewer miles than before per tank, you should have a professional check out your fuel system.  Failed emissions test - When your injectors spurt out an unproportionate amount of fuel, your car ends up producing more emissions than what is deemed safe. If your vehicl ... read more

Is It Safe to Drive with ABS Light?

Is It Safe to Drive with ABS Light?

Weather and traffic conditions can be unpredictable whenever you're on the road. Especially this time of year, Baltimore roads can be wet and slippery, making many drivers rely on their brakes. While you may fear that your primary brakes cannot handle the slick roads, have no worries because your vehicle has an ABS or anti-lock brake system.   The ABS is a safety component installed in all vehicles today, and they are designed to stop your brakes from locking up after heavily pressing on the pedal. This system aims not to enhance your stopping power but instead to prevent your tires from locking up, skidding, and hydroplaning. Therefore, you should trust that your ABS will engage if you need to brake on  slick or wet roads.   When this light comes on your dashboard, it means that the anti-lock system isn't working as it should and has been deactivated. Your regular brakes will still work, but if you slam on them, the ABS may not engage. However, you may risk ... read more
