Simple Answers from Clark's Professional Car Care for Pascagoula: Fuel System Service

Question: What benefit will I get out of a fuel system cleaning? Clark's Professional Car Care Answer: Well, the dirtier your fuel system is, the bigger the improvement you'll see in performance and fuel economy.

When they are dirty this precision just isn't possible. So your vehicle engine can run rough. Also carbon deposits build up on valves and in the combustion chamber. Fuel eco ... read more

Clark's Professional Car Care Automotive Tips: Axles

Your axles are the last link in transferring power from the engine to your wheels. They're strong parts that last a long time, but they can run into trouble. Most Pascagoula. MS drivers know axles just wear out over time and need to be replaced. And sometimes axle seals leak, causing the axle to wear out prematurely. Lubricant leaks out, and water and dirt can get in and contaminate the gears. When this happens you might hear strange noises coming from your axle.

There are different kinds of axles, each with their own potential problems. Your Pascagoula,  MS service technician knows this and checks for things like leaking seals, torn CV boots, worn axle joints. An inspection will reveal if ... read more

Important Facts Pascagoula Drivers May Not Know About Their Check Engine Light

The Check Engine light might come on in your vehicle. It's an amber colored light that shows on your dashboard. In newer vehicles it might just be a problem with your gas cap not being screwed on tight enough (or a worn gas cap), causing the vehicle to fail the self-diagnostic evaporative emission test. All Pascagoula drivers need to do is go to their gas cap and verify that it is tight. If that was the problem, the light will turn off and everything will be fine within one or two days. At Clark's Professional Car Care, we advise Pascagoula drivers to resist the temptation to have someone “clear” the codes to turn off your vehicle check engine light. This erases important diagnostic information that your friendly and knowledgeable Clark's Professional Car Care service advisor needs to diagnose the underlying problem for the Check Engine l ... read more
