In a nutshell, your car's suspension system is a protective lattice of shock-absorbing components such as springs and dampers. Your car's suspension helps ensure that your drive is safe and smooth by absorbing the energy from various road bumps and other kinetic impacts.
A wheel alignment deals with changing the angles of your tires so they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other, which allows your vehicle to drive in a straight line. Having your tires aligned properly will maximize tire life and make handling your vehicle easier.

DPF SERVICE & REPAIR
The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is a device installed in the exhaust stream in all new diesel engines made after January 1, 2007. The DPF is comprised of two chambers. The first chamber works to oxidize a portion of the NO gas in the exhaust to NO2. The second chamber then destroys the soot that is trapped inside. The result of this process is a small amount of ash which remains in the filter. This ash builds up and reduces the effectiveness of the DPF which must be cleaned. Permian Drive Auto and Diesel, in association with Concho Valley Clean Diesel, will test the filter in a vacuum to find the air flow resistance while it is dirty, pre-clean the filter with compressed air in a filtered machine, bake the filter overnight at 1300 degrees F., clean with compressed air again, re-test the filter in a vacuum to test the finished air flow resistance, then clean the exterior of the filter.
Having your car’s air conditioning go out suddenly can ruin your day fast. The most common causes of broken air conditioning are leaks or compressor issues. If your air is blowing cool but not cold, the problem could be a clogged filter, cooling fan problem, radiator trouble, or it could simply be that you need to recharge your AC.
