dad and son working on car

As Father's Day is approaching, our team here at Total Performance Inc would like to give our gratitude to all of the wonderful fathers out there! We know just how integral fathers are in the lives of all of us, so we encourage our team and customers to show their thanks today as well. If you’re a dad yourself, take time today to give yourself a pat on the back for everything you’ve done as a father. Thank you for everything you do! Now it’s time to soak in all the dad jokes and celebrate those who have helped shape all of our lives. 

Inside the shop vehicle racks

While fuel pump issues are common, they often get misdiagnosed. What is your fuel pump, how do you know if yours is bad, and what should you do about it? At Total Performance Inc in Mahwah, NJ, we are going to make sure that you are an informed driver so you know what to look for and what you should do about it.

Whether you drive a Porsche, Audi, BMW, Subaru, Land Rover, or other performance and luxury vehicles, your ball joints are an essential part of your car or SUVs performance and safety. From us at Total Performance Inc , here’s what to watch out for, to make sure your ball joints are in shape and ready to go. 

driving

Obviously, the dirtier your fuel system is, the bigger the improvement you will see in performance and fuel economy after a fuel system cleaning. But it is important not to wait until your system is running poorly. If you do, by the time you get a cleaning, you’ve wasted hundreds of dollars in gas or even possibly damaged your fuel injectors and catalytic converter.

Vehicle Rack in a shop

Fluid levels, tire condition, dashboard lights, and a variety of other items typically are briefly explored whenever you bring your vehicle in for maintenance here at Total Performance Inc in Mahwah, NJ, where we are good at noticing things that need repair, but the fact of the matter is that only you know your car. You know when your car feels off when it's been serviced last (or that it hasn't been serviced at all,) and have at least some vague idea of what’s going on with your vehicle day to day. Here are some questions you can ask us next time you come by the shop;

fuel gauge

Your car’s fuel system works with the rest of the engine control system to deliver the best performance with the lowest emissions. Check your car’s fuel system regularly or immediately if you smell gas or suspect a problem.

What does it do? - The fuel system transfers fuel from the fuel tank and passes it through a fuel filter for straining before it arrives at the injectors. A pressure regulator controls fuel pressure to ensure good engine performance under a variety of speed and load conditions. Fuel injectors, when activated, spray a metered amount of fuel into the engine. Some vehicles use a return line system to return unused fuel back to the tank.

drive belts

Your drive belts run everything - your AC, power steering, alternator, and water pump are all dependent on the belts that turn them. At Total Performance Inc in Mahwah, NJ, our goal is to keep your truck maintained, so you’re never stuck out on the road. Drive belts are a critical part of that goal.

variety of tires sitting on a shelf

Tires are what keeps your vehicle rolling, literally. Many people have found that shopping for tires is overwhelming because there are just so many choices. At Total Performance Inc , we want to break it down for you so that it's easier to understand.
