Car Care

We all know how important quality maintenance is in getting the most out of our vehicle. As our engines begin to age they require additional protection.

Some indicators of engine wear and tear are decreased power & engine performance, increased oil consumption, an engine that is slow to start on a cold morning or runs hotter on warmer days, a decrease in gas mileage, and minor leaks. Seals become brittle, rings wear and valves may not seal as tightly. Deposits can build up on fuel injectors, valves or piston rings, so they don’t operate smoothly. By taking a proactive approach toward your engine’s maintenance, you can help inhibit its aging process and extend the life and efficiency of your vehicle.

The solution may be as simple as using the correct car care chemicals and additives. These are designed to provide specialized protection for your vehicle’s engine by increasing anti-wear properties, conditioning seals, and boosting cleaning agents to help reduce deposit formation and friction modifiers; all which will help maximize engine life and improve engine performance.

ARDINA has developed a Car Care Reference Guide, which contains a problem description, the possible causes, and connects this to ARDINA products to solve your problem.

Cooling System Maintenance

Cooling System Maintenance

Inside your car's engine, fuel is constantly burning. A lot of the heat from this combustion goes right out the exhaust system, but some of it soaks into the engine, heating it up. The primary job of the cooling system is to keep the engine from overheating by transferring this heat to the air.
