Air Filters

Air Filters

Air filters.  One of the most overlooked pieces of a car. Here at Ski Country Auto Repair and Towing,  we know every part of the car is important. A good clean air filter should be at the top of everyone’s list. Yes, oil is a little more important but with newer cars these days so many of the calculations a PCM must perform involve how much air is getting into the motor. Air flow determines just how well the car runs. The PCM uses a mass air flow meter or manifold absolute pressure sensor to determine how much fuel is needed to make the engine run properly. That is why we perform a free courtesy inspection on every vehicle we service. Our A.S.E. certified automotive technicians are trained to know the difference between a good air filter and a bad one.  Most people do not understand the cause and affect of a bad air filter. One easy way to think about it is this, everyone has had to run once.  Imagine your out running and the air is nice and clean.  You g ... read more

Cabin Air

Hi, everyone! We’ve been pretty busy here at the shop. Some of you know some of you don’t but we’ve been renovating our shop! It’s been an interesting journey so far, but it will be worth it in the end. We are still open just in our little “she shed”. That’s what we call it anyway. We still offer the great service you come to know from us. One thing I wanted to talk to you about is the cabin air filter in your car. Most new cars have them. Most people don’t know what they are or even where to find it in your car. These are often overlooked. Some are easy to get to some are a different story. But it is an important element in your car. They are not changed as often as your engine air filter but if you’re not changing it at least twice a year it’s probably clogging up and putting extra strain on your HVAC system. I know I like to breathe clean air, don’t you? Your owner’s manual should tell you if you have one and wh ... read more

We here at Ski Country want you all to know we are here for you! We are open and ready to help in any way we can. We have set up special protocols to minimize the chance of spreading COVID-19.
