Helping Keep Your Engine Healthy
Helping Keep Your Engine Healthy ô
Recent government statistics show that 13% of UK greenhouse gas emissions are produced by personal car travel!
You may feel that car emissions are a global problem that you can't help solve, but do you ever wonder what effect your everyday driving is having on the world around us?
And if the car has a fault with the engine, these already damaging emissions can be much worse - causing far greater environmental damage than a healthy engine.
Engine warning signs
The engine warning light on your dashboard is designed specifically to indicate a problem with the engine. If the light is on, the car has identified a fault and in almost all cases is a sign of increased emissions.
If that light is flashing, the situation is even worse - emissions are so high that the exhaust gases are likely to damage components on the car.
Help at hand
Why not start 2008 with the environment in mind? With a little help, you can keep an eye on your emissions at home.
If your engine light comes on, you don't need to take the car to a garage to find the cause - simply plug in our GCR05 Handheld Fault Reader - available for just £26.95 (delivered).
Or if you'd like to know more about what's going on under the bonnet, you can even plug your car into your PC with our award-winning EngineCheck packages from as little as £64.94 (delivered).
