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 703-675-7016 or visit LT Foreign Car Service German & Japanese Auto 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 LT Foreign Car Service German & Japanese Auto 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 LT Foreign Car Service German & Japanese Auto Repair in St Petersburg, FL 33707. 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 LT Foreign Car Service German & Japanese Auto Repair in St Petersburg, FL 33707.
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 LT Foreign Car Service German & Japanese Auto Repair, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 703-675-7016 or visit LT Foreign Car Service German & Japanese Auto Repair today.
bmw 645ci convertible LT was very professional and very proactive in communicating what he thought would fix my problem I had several codes along with engine malfunction indicator that warn me that the catalytic converter could be damage if I continued driving. so I took LT advice and even though the price was a bit step for my pockets at the time I know I saved thousands of dollars going to LT my car haven't ran this good in over 5 years I am very happy with the results. I have a mechanic now I can trust! Thanks LTBren

LT Foreign Car Service expertly diagnosed and repaired, in less than a day, the electrical issues with my 2001 BMW 3301 that had knocked out my entire dashboard mechanism. LT also fixed my A/C malfunction, which was also caused by a wiring issue, rather than having to replace my entire A/C system. This is an honest shop, with reasonable pricing who provide first class expertise. They deserve all the business they can handle by owners of foreign motor vehicles. Do not be fooled by the lack of parking space at their location. The German tech shop which had been repairing my BMW for many years would not address the electrical issues to repair the dashboard of my 2001 330i because of the complexities and there were no guarantees they could fix it. All I got from LT Foreign Car Service were positive results, friendly customer service and a new No.1 auto repair shop for my BMW. I can not recommend LT Foreign Car Service highly enough!
