How Do You Save Gas in PEQUANNOCK, NJ?

How Do You Save Gas in PEQUANNOCK, NJ?

No one in PEQUANNOCK, NJ, likes to spend a chunk of change at the gas pump. Rising NJ fuel prices, however, have spurred PEQUANNOCK drivers to focus on how to improve their fuel economy. North Americans literally drive billions of miles/kilometers less each month during times of high fuel prices. But we still need to drive (we love our vehicles, after all!), so it makes sense to try and increase our fuel economy however we can.Let's look at a real life example. This man has one of those really big SUVs. Lots of kids and horses to haul around, you know. His family was planning a four day camping trip. Here's what he did to cut his fuel costs:First, he installed a new, high flow engine air filter. Then he had his service center change his oil, flush his cooling system and service his front and rear differentials along with the transfer case. He also had a fuel system cleaning, replaced his PCV valve and breather element. He also made sure his tires were ... read more

Service Center Standard and Procedures

Service Center Standard and Procedures

All NJ pilots have checklists for every aspect of flying. They always use their checklists even if they only have two steps on them. They do this simply because a checklist is a great way to not forget steps. It is also how they can assure a predictable outcome. That is why PEQUANNOCK automotive service centers including BOCK AUTOMOTIVE have procedural standards for each service they perform. BOCK AUTOMOTIVE technicians are trained step by step. And they perform the procedures step by step, the same way each time. By training to procedural standards, NJ service centers can assure a quality outcome. The job is done right every time and PEQUANNOCK customers leave happy with how their vehicle performs. Each company trains its technicians to standards. The NJ automotive industry as a whole is very committed to standards of excellence and encourages individual NJ service center operators to apply them to every vehicle they service.

Keep Your Cool in PEQUANNOCK: Air Conditioning Service

Keep Your Cool in PEQUANNOCK: Air Conditioning Service

Most PEQUANNOCK drivers don't even think about their air conditioner. Now here's a tip for PEQUANNOCK vehicle owners: Run your air conditioner every so often during NJ winters. This circulates the lubricant to help keep the seals from drying out. The air conditioner actually removes some of the moisture in the air. So if you have trouble with fogging on your vehicle windshield during NJ winters or during a rain storm, running the A/C on the defrost setting should help. Now on some PEQUANNOCK cars you can't run the A/C at the same time as the defroster. Don't ask me why, but I suspect lawyers were involved.Also, air and water can get into the A/C system. That can reduce the efficiency of the system and also lead to corrosion that causes damage. PEQUANNOCK drivers should periodically purge the system and replace the refrigerant to remove the air and water.NJ drivers would be wise to lea ... read more
