April Showers: Are Your Windshield Wipers and Lights Ready?

We can’t believe Spring is here! We can’t wait to soak up the sun, watch the flowers bloom, and overall, enjoy watching the world come alive again after winter. Yet, we have all heard of the saying: “April showers bring May flowers.” April is notorious for a downpour of Spring rain, and driving conditions seem to automatically get worse during wet weather.  You might be surprised to learn how many drivers forget about their windshield wipers and lights, but these two components play a large role in your safety against the elements. Just imagine you are driving home after work, and the sun has already gone down. Not only is it now dark out, but it has now started to rain!

Difference Between Cabin Air Filters and Engine Air Filters

Your vehicle is made up of various components, and each one of these components plays a vital role in the overall performance of your vehicle. Even the smallest parts, from your windshield wipers, ensures you reach your destination safely and smoothly. Two of these vital components are your cabin air filter and engine air filter, but what exactly is the difference between the two?  Your engine air filter is located under your vehicle's hood, usually near the engine's front. Your engine air filter is responsible for keeping small particles and dust out of your engine's intake. Engines work at high speeds under hot temperatures, and even the smallest amount of dust or dirt can wreak havoc on your other major components in your vehicle. Eventually, your engine air filter will need to be cleaned or changed. A clogged engine air filter can lead to decreased performance, increased emission, and poor fuel economy.  The main difference between your cabin air filter and ... read more
