The Difference Between Diesel and Gas.

If you are the owner of a high-performance German car you might be acutely aware of the difference.  One big variable is the injection process.  Most engines use a port injection.  A carburetor mixes air and fuel before the air enters the cylinder.  All of the fuel enters the cylinder during intake and is then compressed.

On the other hand, diesel engines use direct fuel injection.  The diesel fuel is injected directly into the cylinder.  The injector on a diesel engine is its most complicated component.  Over the years it has been subjected to a great deal of tweaking.  In some diesel engines there is a glow plug that raises the temperature when the engine is cold.

This is a big factor for those of us in the Denver area where the thermometer can drop well below freezing overnight.  The German Car Shoppe is aware of all your repair needs whether the engine is gas or diesel.  Rely on The German Car Shoppe for all of your German car maintenance needs.  Call their Littleton shop for an appointment at (303) 798-2287.

Information about the Heating System in your Porsche.

Knowledge is power.  Don’t let someone confuse you with mumbo-jumbo about the heating system of your prized Porsche.  The heat exchanger temperature sensor automatically controls heat distribution into the passenger compartment.  In your Porsche the sensor is installed inside the left heater duct next to the transmission.

On 1984 and 1985 models the sensor is found behind a trim cover in the headliner between the sun visors.  If your Porsche was manufactured anytime after that the sensor is then fitted in the dash behind the small grille.  I know, it’s minutia, but then isn’t everything about the care and maintenance of your Porsche about attention to detail?

Knowing what makes your Porsche or other German model car tick is the job of the aptly named German Car Shoppe located in Littleton Colorado.  We have serviced German Imports with pride and precision for decades.  We will be there to service your pride and joy when you need us.  Just call for an appointment at (303) 798-2287.

Check with us…We’ll check it out.

What we mean by that is simply this.  When you are thinking about buying a pre-owned German car why not let us fully inspect it first?  What greater peace of mind could you get than letting us at The German Car Shoppe thoroughly inspect any vehicle you may be looking at before you decide to pull the trigger?

It seems simple, but it isn’t always.  A qualified mechanic needs to be able to analyze then credibly justify any opinions or recommendations that are filed in his report.  Credibility and experience are paramount.  Obviously, the credibility of knowing what potential problems to look for, but also are they just doing this to “get my business”?

At the German Car Shoppe, we hope that you will trust us for all of the maintenance that ever needs to be done on your pre-owned German vehicle.  Our mission is NOT to start tearing your prized beauty to pieces, but rather have you enter into the purchase with your eyes wide-open.  Please stop by our Littleton location and call ahead for an appointment at (303) 798-2287.
