gas pump putting fuel into vehicle

If you drive a car, truck, or SUV that runs on gasoline, there's a good chance you’ve run it low on fuel a few times (or more than a few times,) and maybe even run out of gas completely a time or two. At Zylstra Automotive & Diesel in Visalia, CA, we like to provide information applicable to you. Running a vehicle low on fuel is something we’re all guilty of, and most of us don’t think twice about it. But, can it be bad for your car?

glow plug

Glow Plugs are an essential component of your diesel engine. However, a faulty glow plug can go unnoticed or be neglected for quite some time; your truck will still start and run, so it’s an easy issue to overlook. At Zylstra Automotive & Diesel in Visalia, CA, we want you to know what to look for, and why you should be concerned with a bad glow plug.

dirty air filter vs clean filter

Your vehicle's engine needs clean air to burn the fuel – and it needs a lot of clean air. In fact, a typical vehicle needs about 216,000 gallons of air for every tank of gas. All that air passes through a filter that catches the dust and dirt. Eventually, the filter gets completely full, and because the filter can only hold so much, dirt starts getting through. At Zylstra Automotive & Diesel in Visalia, we ensure you get the best air quality in your vehicle and explain the process of where this dirty air is going to our area drivers.
