- Changing the oil & filter
- Changing the air filter
- Changing the fuel filter
- Bleeding the fuel system
- Draining the water separators
- Refilling the urea injection system
You can count on the experts at Affordable Auto and Truck Repair to help your diesel engine last a long time.
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 727-329-8728 or visit Affordable Auto and Truck Repair today.
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Affordable Auto and Truck Repair today.
Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Affordable Auto and Truck Repair in Clearwater, FL 33762. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.
Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Affordable Auto and Truck Repair in Clearwater, FL 33762.
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Affordable Auto and Truck Repair, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 727-329-8728 or visit Affordable Auto and Truck Repair today.

I recently had a serious emergency with my Toyota tundra and the dealership really lied to me and try to take me for a ride almost $5000 until I found Affordable Auto they checked everything out so many things were over embellished from the dealership and or just a straight lie. They saved me $3000 plus I got brakes out of it as well as the things that needed to be fixed so I'm pretty happy and they've been very very responsive and have checked on me after service to make sure I'm happy with everything really means a lot that they follow up definitely will recommend this place to anybody.
The guys who work here are great at what they do. I came to them to get my compressor fixed under my car dealership warranty. Troy took care of the entire thing & even spent hours on the phone negotiating with my warranty company to make sure that I had the most affordable price & my car back as soon as possible (as he knows I have children & need a vehicle) They even threw in a desperately needed free oil change. I can't thank them enough. This is my new favorite spot to take my car & I will be recommending all of my friends & family to come here. Thank you so much to this crew for fixing my AC in the middle of summer!
