Automotive Tips from Lange`s Auto Care, Inc.: Battery Testing

The simple fact is that 70% of car batteries fail within 4 years. They just need to be replaced at Lange`s Auto Care, Inc. when they are no longer able to hold a full charge.Batteries are a big ticket item for most Maumee drivers and it’s tempting to put off buying a new one as long as possible. But a battery that cannot hold a full charge requires the alternator to work extra hard, causing it to wear out prematurely.Your Lange`s Auto Care, Inc. service advisor can test your battery to see if it should be replaced. Testing is a good idea for OH drivers because a battery might still be good, but become dead because of a bad alternator or even a worn serpentine belt and tensioner.

Fuel Injector Cleaning at Lange`s Auto Care, Inc.

Fuel Injector Cleaning at Lange`s Auto Care, Inc.

In very simple terms, a fuel injector is a valve that squirts fuel into your vehicle engine. Your engine control computer tells the fuel injector how much fuel to deliver as well as the precise time it should be delivered. Of course this happens thousands of times a minute in every single fuel-injected vehicle driving down Maumee roads.Most fuel injectors for gas engines are known in the Maumee automotive community as port fuel injectors because they deliver the fuel to a port just outside the cylinder. The fuel pump provides pressure needed to squirt the right amount of fuel into the engine. A few have recently introduced gas direct injection systems on some engines. They are now available at some OH dealerships. These systems inject the gas directly into the cylinders under very high pressure – many times the pressure of port injection systems.

It Pays to Take Care of Your Transmission at Lange`s Auto Care, Inc.

If you've been paying attention, you've noticed that vehicle engines are getting more and more powerful in Maumee. At the same time, they are getting better and better fuel economy. I've gotta tell 'ya, most of that's because of technological advances in transmissions. To get a better understanding of why that is, let's talk bicycles.You've probably seen plenty of cyclists on Maumee roads. Perhaps you ride yourself. Then you know that a cyclist's cadence is the number of times per minute he or she pedals. The ideal pedal speed is the zone where they can most efficiently generate power over a sustained period of time. The experienced OH cyclist uses her gears to keep her pedal speed in the ideal zone whether she's climbing a hill, cruising on a flat stretch or killing a downhill.Think of it this way: if you have a 1-speed bike, you really have to pump hard to get up to speed. Your top speed is limited by how fast as you can pedal. And if you're climbing a steep OH hill ... read more

Automotive Tips from Lange`s Auto Care, Inc.: Air Conditioning Inspection

Most auto manufacturers recommend an interval for an air conditioning system inspection. The inspection uncovers leaks, worn hoses and assesses the condition of the other components.Environmental laws in some around Maumee require leaks to be repaired before refrigerant can be added. Also some parts manufacturers require other components to be replaced along with certain failed parts in order to maintain the new part warranty. This is because a given failure may be the result of another worn or damaged part that will, if not replaced, prematurely damage the new component.Lange`s Auto Care, Inc. in Maumee is fully equipped to restore your flow of cool air.Lange`s Auto Care, Inc.825 Ford St Suite AMaumee, OH 43537419-897-9988http://www.langesauto.com
