Drivability Issues and Tune-Ups

Is your car stalling, surging, or performing inconsistently on the road? We refer to these types of drivability issues as having poor performance or a “rough idle.” If your car is idling, it can be like having a nagging headache that simply won’t go away. Your vehicle’s “check engine” light might be blinking or coming on and off intermittently, has lack of performance or poor fuel economy, or your vehicle might fail its E-Check. Fortunately, Rad Air’s professional automotive repair technicians are experienced in diagnosing the problem and improving the drivability—and overall performance—of your vehicle.
