Best Engine Cleaning in San Antonio
Anyone with even the slightest degree of knowledge of cars knows that an engine is one of the most expensive pieces of equipment in the vehicle. It therefore makes sense that it should receive the highest level of care. This fact is especially true for custom-built cars where engines can cost thousands of dollars. At C.A.R.S. Paint & Body we realize how big an investment car engines are and that is why we do all we can to make sure that they are as well-protected as possible for our entire San Antonio customer base.
We are extremely proud of the fact that we were one of the first garages in San Antonio to offer a unique engine cleaning service on all custom-built designs. The reason for this is simple. We see first-hand the hours and days that dedicated custom car owners like you invest in your unique vehicles. As a result, we want to ensure that we are doing all we can to make sure that these engines are as durable and long-lasting as possible. Providing the best engine cleaning service in the market does just that.
Leave it to the Professionals
It’s probably a fair assumption to suggest that many custom car owners know a thing or two about repairing and remodeling their vehicles. That is obviously a really valuable skill to have and our team of mechanics love nothing more than to sit down and discuss the finer details of optimal energy efficiency with a knowledgeable client. That being said, this doesn’t mean that you should go about doing something as complex as a proper engine clean all by yourself. We have lost count of the number of people who have burned their fingers trying to work on a hot engine. Just so you know, throwing water on your engine doesn’t help and could actually end up making things far worse. If you really feel that you want to have a look at your engine then the best time to do so is first thing in the morning as it will have had all night to sit and cool. Otherwise, leave it to the pros.
Beware of Excessive Water
Another reason why it is a good idea to leave your detailed engine clean to the professionals is because of the many parts of a custom-built vehicle that are simply not water-friendly. Everything from your alternator, to exposed filters as well as the engine’s air intake needs to avoid water at all costs. Failing to do could leave lasting damage.
By the same token, a custom-built car will have many more electrical connections and gauges then regular factory-made models and these are also highly-affected when exposed to any significant amount of water. To avoid any lasting damage, our mechanics use specially-fitted bags to protect all areas under the hood that from water during the clean.
