Putting Corn in your fuel tank

We live in the land of corn, and it’s a great place to be, but is it really a vegetable? Answer: probably not. As much as we all love corn-on-the-cob and popcorn, we have to admit, corn is as sweet as candy and has about as much nutritional value, which is why so much of its use is as a …

What you must know about carbon build up!

Every time the accelerator is pressed, you control how much fuel and air the engine takes in. These are mixed together and drawn into the combustion chamber of an engine cylinder. At idle, the scientific community would say a perfect air/fuel ratio would be 14.6:1; however this will vary depending on air temperature, engine configuration and especially on whether the …

When this decreases…..what increases?

Maintenance

Automotive manufacturers have been pushing extended oil change intervals for many years. Mileage services are getting fewer and farther between, and they contain very little “meat” (inspect this, check that, top off fluids, change oil, rotate tires, and you’re good to go). Sealed transmissions without dipsticks, “lifetime” antifreeze, and so-called maintenance-free fuel systems all contribute to the narrative. The marketing strategy has been preached for so long by so many with so much intensity that consumers are believing it—and paying a heavy price. …

Oil Consumption – What you must know

excessive oil consumption

Because of wear, engines are more likely to consume oil as they age, but some manufactures are telling consumers that even on newer engines, oil consumption is normal. Common culprits of oil consumption can include worn valve stems, guides and seals, or piston rings. All of these can allow oil to seep into combustion chambers. If oil gets in the …

What you aren’t being told about Gasoline Direct Injection

Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engines are not a new thing. The first automotive direct injection system was created by Bosch and then developed by Goliath and Gutbrod in 1952, It was placed in the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL. From the early 2000’s until now, more automotive manufactures have moved to GDI engines in their vehicles. Some manufactures are using only GDI …
