Out of everything in your car, what would you say is the most important? Maybe it’s having a fresh oil change from Pacc Auto, maybe it’s having a full tank before you hit the road – but one thing that’s generally overlooked until it’s too late, your brakes. Without them, where would we be? Probably still rolling.
When you need to stop your vehicle quickly, you need to be able to count on your brakes. While your brakes may not be the most fun part of your vehicle to work on, they are definitely one of the most crucial. When you pay attention to the warning signs that you need brake service in Santa Clarita, it may actually mean the difference in life and death when you are on the road.
There is no reason to take chances when it comes to the maintenance and repair of your vehicle. Going to just any repair shop may leave your car with sub-par parts that simply continue to break and malfunction, costing you more money and time. However, when you visit PACC, the certified technicians are so confident in the work that they perform, on all vehicles, they offer a warranty of two years or 24,000 miles for all repair work that is completed; this far surpasses any competitor in the Santa Clarita area.
Your tires support the weight of your vehicle, right? Well they don't! It's the air pressure inside them that actually supports the weight. Maintaining sufficient air pressure is required if your tires are to provide all of the handling, traction and durability of which they are capable.
However, you can't set tire pressure...and then forget about it! Tire pressure has to be checked periodically to assure that the influences of time, changes in ambient temperatures or a small tread puncture have not caused it to change.

How do you know if you need new tires?
Tire wear depends on several factors, including your driving style and tire maintenance habits. Wrong size load and speed rating can void your warranty. But one sure way to know when to replace your tires is when treadwear indicators appear. A tire's built-in treadwear indicators are "wear bars" that look like narrow strips of smooth rubber across the tread and appear when it's time to replace the tire.
Within the internal combustion engine, the compression ratio, as it’s known, is the piston’s movement as it squeezes the fuel/air mixture in the cylinder. BG Products know that sadly loss of compression over time is inevitable. So it's a good thing BG's got a product to restore and maintain peak compression! Adding BG EPR to the engine and letting it tick over for at least 15 minutes restores compression by dissolving the deposits that clog rings and seals.
