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.

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.

Your Vehicle Is the Embodiment of Freedom

Henry Ford transformed his imagination into reality. Initially, it was just an idea in Henry Ford’s head until he decided to build his first experimental vehicle in a workshop behind his home in Detroit in 1896. After the Ford Motor Company was formed, the first Ford car was assembled at the Mack Avenue plant in July 1903.  During the industrial revolution in the 1920s, Henry Ford further fulfilled his American Dream. He built a massive workforce and continued to lead the automotive industry as an innovator. America was transformed by both the Ford itself and the production behind the scenes. Henry Ford built a vehicle that was large enough for the family but also small enough for an individual to take care of.  Henry Ford’s original idea of a vehicle is the American Dream -- through his hard work, he reached his highest aspirations and goals. Now, the modern vehicle is the embodiment of freedom. Through the vehicle, we have the everlasting choice to go places ... read more
