In an era of rapidly escalating costs, it’s easy to overlook the significance of regular car maintenance. However, a well-maintained vehicle doesn’t just last longer; it also costs less to repair and is more fuel-efficient when the throttle body and airflow sensors are kept clean.
On that note, here are several products from CRC Industries that are guaranteed to protect your vehicle and keep it running smoother for longer.
If your vehicle’s showing signs of a rough idle, loss of power, or increased fuel consumption, there’s a good chance your Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor is dirty.
These days, most fuel-injected engines are equipped with a MAF sensor – a device that measures the quantity of air entering the engine. The computer then uses this information to determine how much fuel must be injected.
Unfortunately, the MAF sensor frequently gets dirty with accumulated debris, usually oil, dust, and pollen, that can cause inaccurate sensor readings and negatively affect the engine’s air-to-fuel ratio.
Technicians and other DIY automotive enthusiasts will often try to use throttle body cleaner, carburettor cleaner, or even brake-part cleaner to clean the engine’s MAF sensor, but these cleaners are far too aggressive for this application and run the risk of warping or damaging sensitive components or plastic parts surrounding the MAF sensor.
AIR SENSOR CLEAN PRO improves and restores the function and reliability of MAF sensors while remaining safe to use on plastic components and sensitive electronics.
Dust, debris, oil, and dirt can build up on your vehicle’s electrical contacts. Over time, these deposits may lead to contact failure, a loss of performance, or even a total malfunction in the electrical system.
CRC Industries’ QD ELECTRONIC CLEANER is a precision cleaner designed to improve your vehicle’s electrical connections while remaining safe to use on all plastic components thanks to its ‘Quick Drying’ formula that leaves no residue.
Although conventional grease has many benefits in certain applications, it does have limitations when applied in hard-to-reach places.
While CRC Industries’ WHITE LITHIUM GREASE offers the same benefits associated with regular grease, thanks to its aerosol form and fine spray, it has the added benefit of reaching components that may be difficult to get to with conventional grease.
This makes CRC’s WHITE LITHIUM GREASE ideal for door hinges, sunroof rails, winches, trailer couplings, bonnet latches and more.
Regular cleaning is integral to extending battery life and avoiding the high cost of replacing your car, caravan, or motorcycle battery.
Unfortunately, when exposed to warm environments – such as your car’s engine bay – batteries may leak acid and form corrosion around their terminals. This, in turn, reduces the battery’s performance and lifespan.
While terminal corrosion is easily identified as a blue-green powdery residue, leaked battery acid can be invisible to the naked eye.
Fortunately, CRC INDUSTRIES’ BATTERY CLEANER WITH ACID INDICATOR effectively cleans batteries, neutralises acid, and changes colour when it comes in contact with acid – making it easy to identify where acid build-up or spills have occurred.
Battery-terminal corrosion is a leading cause of vehicle hard starting, but thankfully, it’s also an easy and affordable problem to fix.
Although some mechanics use grease or Vaseline to protect a battery’s terminals, these substances attract and accumulate dirt over time.
The correct product to use is CRC’S BATTERY TERMINAL PROTECTOR, a lead-free soft coating designed to protect battery terminals from corrosion.
CRC Industries’ GDI VALVE CLEANER is a professional-grade cleaner engineered to optimise the performance of Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engines by removing carbon deposits that cause a loss of power, increased fuel consumption, and a rough idle.
The product also acts as a safeguard for your engine’s longevity, protecting it from wear and tear caused by carbon accumulation.
Specially formulated to clean and protect sensitive electronic parts, CRC Industries’ LECTRA-MOTIVE ELECTRIC PARTS CLEANER is the ultimate solution for ensuring peak performance and the reliability of electrical components.
Its non-conductive properties make it ideal for cleaning electrical contacts, connectors, switches, relays, and circuit boards, providing exceptional cleaning power without the risk of short circuits or damage.
Moreover, because LECTRA-MOTIVE ELECTRIC PARTS CLEANER evaporates quickly and leaves no residue, the powerful cleaning solution is safe on various materials, including plastics, rubber, paint and metals.
CRC Industries’ CARB & EGR CLEANER PRO is a high-performance solution that dissolves and removes stubborn deposits and varnish in carburettors and EGR systems, allowing smooth airflow and optimal fuel delivery.
By eliminating these harmful deposits CARB & EGR CLEANER PRO helps prevent engine hesitation, rough idling, and stalling while remaining safe to use on various engine components, including carburettors, EGR valves, throttle bodies, and automatic chokes.
Few jobs are grimier than brake-part replacements. But aside from being dirty work, ensuring that your brake surfaces are clean (before installing new components) is an essential part of doing the job right the first time.
As the world’s top-selling brake-part cleaner for over 40 years, CRC’s BRAKLEEN does most of the hard work for you by blasting off brake dust, grease, oil and road grime. However, Brakleen can also be used for CV joints, clutches, housings, springs, bolts, fasteners and all brake hardware.
