  • What is an air intake cleaning?
  • In what intervals should you have your fuel system serviced/cleaned?
  • 2000 Chevrolet Suburban: I’ve noticed a bit of surging at certain RPMs. I’ve replaced a number of parts but the problem persists. Any suggestions?
  • 2000 Infiniti: As long as I keep up my regular scheduled maintenance, should I ever have an issue with my fuel system?
  • 2000 Chrysler 300M: My timing belt is recommended to be replaced at 100k miles. I’ve only driven around 70k miles – should I still have it replaced because of the car’s age?
  • 2012 Acura MDX: My car is using over a quart of oil every thousand miles. What might be causing this?
  • 2002 Buick Century: My car is hesitating to accelerate, almost as if it isn’t getting any gas. Otherwise it operates fine. Any advice?
