The behind the scenes details are often more important than the ones you can see. We took that extra step, for example, when degreeing the cam shaft in this MG engine we recently rebuilt. Our attention to details makes the difference not only in your "specialty car" but in your everyday car as well! www.mfccolumbus.com

Spring is finally here and so is allergy season! A new "cabin air filter" can greatly reduce the effects of that irritating pollen in your car. When was the last time you've had your cabin filter changed?

Here's another reason regular maintenance is important!
In older designed engines, a timing chain was very heavy and robust. Today's chains are much lighter and allow the engine to run more efficiently. However, these new chains are not as forgiving when starved of their needed lubrication. The older designed chain has larger but fewer links than the newer design, which has many more but substantially smaller links. When both chains are exposed to the same amount of wear, the newer design will stretch much more due to the greater number of links, resulting in "poor engine performance",  "poor fuel mileage", "check engine light" and potentially catastrophic "engine failure".
This can all be avoided with more regular maintenance as recommended by our expert technicians at Mike's Foreign Car Service. Please call us at 614-276-8282. We'd be happy to discuss with you your personal "automotive maintenance" needs!

We have a friend who was not satisfied with the performance of his 2005 Mustang. We don't typically do performance upgrades on American muscle cars, but we installed a Paxton Supercharger last year and last week installed an intercooler, changed the final drive ratio, and had it tuned at Dyno Tune Motorsports. We achieved just under 500 HP at the rear wheel. We decided to back off the tune to 430 HP to preserve the engine. Thank you Brian at Dyno Tune Motorsports for helping us exceed our expectations!!

How Do Disc Brakes Work?
Disc brakes are important to the safety of you and your passengers. "Disc brakes can be positioned on the front axle or on both axles."  Older cars used drum brakes on both axles. Brake shoes expanded in a drum that revolved with the wheel. That type of braking system did not dissipate heat efficiently, leading to brake fade and long stopping distances.  Disk brakes squeeze pads against a brake disk that rotates with the wheel. This design allows for better air flow, thus resulting in cooler operating temperatures.
For proper brake inspection, please visit us at http://mfccolumbus.com or call us at 614-276-8282.
