Did you know that check engine light fault codes usually start with P0010 and can end with P1904??

Every one of these codes correlates to a different emissions related issue involving your vehicle.

This means that your check engine light could come on for over 1800 different issues! 🧐😟

Our facility will be open on Monday, December 24th from 8:00am until whenever we get our work completed!

If you have a college student who will be home over the holidays, that would be a great time to have their vehicle checked over or serviced before winter weather hits.

Call us at 717-732-3556 or send an email to kreitzersauto@gmail.com to schedule an appointment! #shopsmall

We have all seen the signs on many gas pumps that say "10% ethanol" but do you know what ethanol is or WHY we are using it?

Ethanol was introduced in gasoline to help oxygenate gasoline, which is supposed to help fuel burn more completely in combustion. (See API v. EPA for adverse results) Ethanol is alcohol fuel that is distilled from plant materials.

What does this all have to do with YOU the automobile owner?? There are many adverse effects of using ethanol blended gasoline in our vehicles. Alcohol is a great solvent, but will also dissolve plastic, rubber, and even some types of fiberglass. It has a drying agent in it that will also cause cracking and damage to non-alcohol resistant parts. And probably the WORST quality ethanol blended gas has is that alcohol is hydroscopic which means that it will absorb water. That water absorption also separates from the gasoline. Water creates rust.....see where I am going with this...?

The properties of ethanol blended gasoline snowball into many other issues such as decreased shelf life of E10 gasoline, drop in octane (the measure of a fuel's ability to resist knocking or pinging during combustion), engine performance problems, hesitation and lack of acceleration, clogging of engine filters and premature wear.

This is something that we as owners of an automobile repair shop are seeing more frequently. Just wanted to pass this information on to our customers for a little knowledge! #themoreyouknow
