Second, replace your filter is a simple and easy way to prevent your vehicle from costly repairs. Air is an important aspect when keeping the vehicle running and has a perfect combustion. Air filters are used to prevent particles or foreign material to get into your vehicle’s engine.

By far the most risky thing is a crack in the windshield. It creates an annoyance when you are driving your vehicle. These small cracks can spread like cancer. One minute they were the size of small pebbles, the next thing you know, you hit a bump and crack grows 4 inches.
If you find yourself with quite a small crack you often can visit the local grocery store and pick up a tool kit that instructs you to fix the problem. They use similar to the adhesive glue that fills the gap and bring it back to normal window view. If you’ve found a gap too late, you can make an appointment to replace your glass, but it was pricy.
