Obviously, your brakes are essential. However, it’s easy to neglect or ignore brake issues, and even miss them altogether; as long as the car, truck, or SUV still stops, many people don’t see the need to have their brakes serviced. From Auto Care By Kenely, Inc in Orangevale, here are some common brake issues, and why you should fix them.

exhaust fumes

While your exhaust system helps reduce noise output from your vehicle, it also significantly reduces harmful emissions from being released into the air. When your muffler and exhaust system are functioning properly, it significantly reduces your vehicle's harmful impact on the environment. It also significantly improves the functionality of your vehicle and improve fuel mileage for your car, truck, SUV or Jeep.

An exhaust system is made up of numerous parts that work together to rid your car of the exhaust gases that are created during the combustion cycle, as your engine burns fuel. Each part of your exhaust system has an important role to play in removing exhaust gases away from the engine as quickly as possible, allowing another cycle of combustion to begin. The more quickly and efficiently an exhaust system does this the more efficiently an engine can run. The main parts of an exhaust system are an exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, oxygen sensors, exhaust pipes, and the muffler.

dash warning lights

Whether you drive a Powerstroke, Cummins, or Duramax diesel, your truck is a complex piece of equipment. Emissions systems, fuel systems, and systems you’ve probably never heard of all work together to keep your truck going strong. Sometimes, however, a warning light will pop up on your dash, and leave you wondering what’s going on. From ABS to Check Engine Lights, Auto Care By Kenely, Inc in Orangevale, CA has you covered.

air filter being added the engine

Air filters are an important part of vehicle maintenance. What many people don’t realize is you actually have two filters; one for your engine and a cabin filter to filter the air coming into your car. Both of them function the same way but have entirely different purposes. They are often neglected, particularly the cabin filter, and yours may need to be changed right now. This guide, provided by Auto Care By Kenely, Inc in Orangevale, highlights the importance of filters, symptoms of an overused one, and how to maintain them.
