5 Tips for a Healthier Emissions System

5 Tips for a Healthier Emissions System

Perhaps you have an emissions test (smog test) coming up to renew your older car's registration. Maybe you want to do your part to minimize harmful emissions in the environment. Or, you would simply like to keep your car healthy for many years to come. All of these are great reasons to take care of your vehicle's emissions system. The emissions/exhaust system is there to expel toxic gases away from your engine and burn off dangerous fumes before they are released out of the tailpipe. It also plays a significant part in fuel economy. A poor emissions system and/or damaged exhaust components can severely impact your vehicle's average miles per gallon (MPG). Here are 5 tips you can follow for a healthier emissions system: 1. Take Care of Regular Maintenance Getting regular oil changes is one way to keep your engine and emissions system in good shape.

When Is It Appropriate to Use Fog Lights?

When Is It Appropriate to Use Fog Lights?

If you've ever driven in dense fog, you should know that you should never turn on your high beams. The higher the lights shine, the more light will bounce back in your direction, making it more difficult to see.  This is where fog lights come to the rescue. As the name of these devices implies, your vehicle's fog lights are made to be used while driving through heavy fog, mist, snow, and even sand and dust.  Fog lights are different from your regular headlights, which have high-beam and low-beam settings. The distinction lies in the shape of light itself. Fog lights are bar-shaped and aimed closer to the ground, and they provide short-range visibility. By contrast, your regular lights aim straight ahead and further in the distance. By lighting the ground at an angle, fog lights can prevent glare and allow you to see better in foggy conditions. Even with fog lights, you should always drive more slowly and carefully when driving through dense mist. Please keep a safe di ... read more

She reached out to the dealership first, but wasn't satisfied with the response they provided. That's when Mike called Fox Run Auto on her behalf. "She made it to work and then called Martin Honda to see what the issue might be," Mike says. "They said not to drive the car, to get it towed to them and they'd take a look and let her know... in two weeks, and with no loner or rental car offered!" The dealership was right in recommending she not drive the car. The check engine light can come on for any number of reasons. It could be something as simple as a loose gas cap or failing oxygen sensor. Or, it could be something much more ... read more
