BG 44K® safely, rapidly and thoroughly removes engine deposits in combustion chambers, intake manifolds, ports and on valves. It restores flow in fuel injectors and cleans the entire fuel system. BG 44K® improves fuel economy and reduces exhaust emissions. It restores that “like new” driveability to an engine’s performance and keeps it running better, longer and more efficiently. Add one can or bottle to fuel tank at fill up. Catalytic converter and oxygen sensor safe.
SERVICES OFFERED

At GMW service means complete car maintenance. It does not mean merely an oil change or air filter replacement, and it is not just engine specific such as a tune up. A vehicle is much more than an engine, four wheels and a steering wheel. It is a complex piece of machinery with a variety of sophisticated systems. Cars since the 90’s are more electronically sophisticated than the first space shuttle that went up.

We strive to maintain the integrity of the entire vehicle with routine maintenance and visual inspection of body, chassis, interior and undercarriage, engine and transmission, adjusting where necessary, parts replacements as needed or specified, as well as fluid changes. Test drives and reading diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) set by your vehicle’s onboard computer are a part of are minor and major services. Whenever possible, we try to exceed the service work set by the vehicle manufacturer to make sure nothing is overlooked or neglected.
