You can count on the experts at Direct Car Care to help your diesel engine last a long time.
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 313-768-5338 or visit Direct Car Care today.
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Direct Car Care today.
Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Direct Car Care in Lincoln Park, MI 48146. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.
Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Direct Car Care in Lincoln Park, MI 48146.
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Direct Car Care, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 313-768-5338 or visit Direct Car Care today.
This is the only place my family goes for work on our cars. Always great service and reasonable prices!
This place is fantastic. They took the time to check out my car and explain what needed done.
Amazing service, great prices and their timing is perfect. Never had to leave my car very long. (A lot of shops take their time with your vehicle). Plus they don't make me feel dumb being a women!!
Myself and everyone I know who have worked with Todd and Don have had nothing but excellent service. The problem that I dealt with, wasted 2 months and over $600 on, Todd found within hours of dropping my car off, and had it fixed for a fraction of the cost that other garages wanted to charge me.
Todd and his guys to amazing work! I blew a tire and bent a strut this last trip into the shop and they did a great job and an extremely reasonable price! I truly can't say enough great things! They'll have my business for a very long time!
Our #1 go-to shop for car & truck care. Todd & Don typically go above and beyond the call of duty of a 'regular' mechanic shop. they're like a super-hero fix-it team!
They have reasonable prices and they have great customer service.
Todd Williams and the whole crew at Direct Car Care deserve a High 5 today, as they saved me $900.
Only place me and my family will go, they're very reasonable and honest.
Been there before. Good people, good prices, quality work.
