You can count on the experts at Velocity Automotive Service 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 813-689-9276 or visit Velocity Automotive Service 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 Velocity Automotive Service 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 Velocity Automotive Service in Brandon, FL 33511. 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 Velocity Automotive Service in Brandon, FL 33511.
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 Velocity Automotive Service, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 813-689-9276 or visit Velocity Automotive Service today.
Great place, awesome prices and they gave me a free inspection when I didn't make any purchases at all! Awesome local shop, way better then the chains and full synthetic is cheaper then the dealers!
Efficient, clean, courteous and they don't over sell. Support this local small business and you won't be disappointed. :)
Needed to have my brakes looked at after being told i needed to have them replaced right away by another business. After a few minutes they actually told me I wasn't in dire need of having them replaced. I opted to go ahead and have them done just because the squealing was annoying. But I have to say, I appreciate the honesty. They have a nice waiting area as well although I was only there for about 45 minutes. They offered the best prices after calling around and their professionalism was outstanding. Thanks guys.
I can't believe no one has reviewed this wonderful place yet!! I went here for some A/C repairs and was so glad I did!! They were more than helpful getting me in right away and the customer service was exceptional! The waiting area is well decorated and inviting(unlike most service shops) also the staff was So friendly! I was asked more than once if I wanted a bottle of water or anything to drink:) The guys were beyond helpful explaining what was being done and trying to get my car repaired quickly so I could be on my way! My A/C is still blowing cold and it was a pleasant service experience. I Definitely recommend Velocity!
