An auto engine is comprised of many components working together to ensure proper starting and functioning of the vehicle. Over time, components are subject to wear, resulting in lost performance and inefficient fuel economy. Auto service performed by qualified professionals will help maintain and extend auto life.

Are you in need of services for your vehicle that we don’t necessarily provide? You may have a broken windshield for example, but just because we can’t fix it ourselves, doesn’t mean we don’t have a great recommendation for a business nearby.
Give American Tire a call to see who we recommend in our area. We are always looking for ways to support our community and this is just one of them.
Why is preventative auto service important?
In order for the combustion and power necessary to move a heavy vehicle to be initiated by the spark plug, clean gas and air needs to be driven to the vehicle’s cylinders. Clogged fuel injectors, dirty air, soiled fuel filters, and corroded spark plugs all contribute to decreased engine performance and poor gas mileage. It is important to have your vehicle’s air filter inspected regularly, and to follow the manufacturers’ recommendations for replacing components as fuel filters, PCV valves, and spark plugs when they are no longer working at maximum efficiency.
