Just returning from Outer Banks N.C. beach travel I did not realize the amount of sand I carried home with me. The engine compartment, air filter, and cross members were a polluted with sand. Good thing I maintained my normal service schedule, it could have been damaging to the engine if let go. Skip cleaned it all up and serviced as needed. Even though I do have a 4x4 vehicle I do not recommend the beach travel, to much abuse! But I do recommend Skip's Auto Service.
