NOT JUST AN OIL CHANGE!!!

So when you come in for an oil change it isn’t just that. We do a visual inspection of your tires and brakes. Check all of your filters and the level of your fluids. Your lights which is something we don’t think about we check those too. All your belts, your battery we do a complete health assessment of your car letting you know in what order are the urgent, and not so urgent but needs to be done items. #OilChange #Maintenance #Health #Belts #Battery

I was wrong, had to dig deep in FB to fine the winner Jeff Shrock won, there were some close answers, but I went to our Tech. He said the closest was Vent Valve. The part is a two-way valve or a vapor vent control valve(VVCV). A VVCV or two-way Valve, is an emission control valve that prevents fuel vapors from escaping into the atmosphere. The VVCV is controlled by the engine control module(ECM) and allows air flow into the charcoal canister to purge the gas vapors into the engine air intake to be burned. #Emissions #EmissionControlValve #Atmosphere #Maintenance
