Keep Your Engine Cool

One of the most crucial components of your vehicle’s engine is its radiator and cooling system. Checking coolant levels regularly is as important to a vehicle as changing the oil. Heat is produced in the engine as it burns fuel. Without a cooling system, heat accumulates in the engine, raising its temperature. The cooling system circulates coolant through the hot engine and that heat is released to the air through the radiator. Keeping the engine cool prevents damage to important and expensive components, like head gaskets.

How Do Brake Pads Work?

Each time you step on the brake pedal in your car, you’re either slowing it down or stopping it. That happens by brake fluid traveling through the brake system. By the time the fluid reaches the caliper, the caliper forces the brake pads and the rotor together. The friction of this action causes the vehicle to stop.

A great deal of force is required to stop a moving vehicle. That’s accomplished by brake pads that are comprised of a combination of copper, iron, graphite, and steel. This mixture produces a product that’s both durable and cost-effective.
