A customer drove into Bobby Likis Car Clinic/PreRepair® today with two things sputtering: her and her A/C. The cabin air filter in her Lexus RX was virtually “game over” with debris that not only stopped her A/C from doing its job, but also affected the quantity and quality of air that she breathed. YUCK!Dirty cabin air filters like this restrict airflow - making your air conditioner and heater work harder - and are a breeding ground for mold, spores and other nasty-smelling stuff – making your lungs work harder. So if your A/C is laboring or your vehicle smells musty, get your cabin air filter checked. If it needs replacing, consider K&N Filters new line of washable – and reusable – cabin air filters.Our customer’s A/C is actually cooling now, and she is breathing a lot easier after the installation of the K&N cabin air filter and refresher spray which have an electrostatic charge that captures most airborne contaminants, helping to control odors and related allergies. Our Service Director has scheduled a cabin-air filter check (and wash, if needed) in 6 months before another clog taxes her A/C … and her lungs.#KNairfilters #QuickTip

News from Bobby Likis Car Clinic/PreRepair®:  TERRY ELM, ASE-Certified Master Technician, recertified in 5 of the 8 fields today, including A1 (Engine Repair), A2 (Automatic Transmission), A4 (Suspension & Steering), A6 (Electrical/Electronic Systems) and A8 (Engine Performance).  Next week, he will test to recertify in two more areas and is good to go in yet another.  Terry is the author of “TERRY’S TUNE-UP TIPS” that I proudly present on the Car Clinic Network globalcast & publish through our social media.


Here’s a pic of Terry in his natural habitat! See the computers?  Those are just two of the many in his bay, as today’s vehicles require technicians whose tools are far more advanced than just-wrenches required in days-long-gone.  Make sure your automotive service shop has committed resources to technician education & certification and to the sophisticated equipment required to diagnose, service, repair and “PreRepair®” your cars & trucks.  Congratulations to Terry for his fine achievement…we’re mighty PROUD!

It’s time for another installation of Terry’s Tune-Up Tip with Car Clinic’s very own Terry Elm, shop foreman and ASE-Certified Master Technician with L1, F1 and X1 certifications.Bobby Likis and the Car Clinic Network presentsTERRY’S TUNE-UP TIP Just this week, several customers asked me what a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) is. With all the recent media attention, most consumers know if their vehicles are affected by a general recall, but you may not know the information found in TSBs specific to your vehicle. The biggest difference between a recall and a TSB is that NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) does not mandate or require a fix for vehicles under a TSB condition. Further, unlike recalls, fixes outlined in TSBs are not free of charge to the consumer. TSBs are issued by car manufacturers, detailing a diagnosis and fix for a known concern or difficult repair. TSBs are not always related to software updates of on-board computer systems, but, rather, to any system on the vehicle from radiator fan operation to taillight brightness.One of the jobs of a professional automotive technician is finding these TSBs and determining if/how they relate to the problems you may be experiencing with your own vehicle, so that’s the proper procedures can be executed in the most cost-effective way. TSBs are good things for vehicle owners as the information contained therein could possibly save you hundreds of dollars in diagnostic testing time and repairs…dollars which would be well invested in maintenance or PreRepair® services your vehicle may need.
