The automotive aftermarket ensures the customers have access to parts, chemicals, accessories and more even after the vehicle has been sold by the original equipment manufacturer. Customers can obtain necessary components of their vehicles in order to make sure vehicles function properly. Pfann’s CPR has access to aftermarket parts and is able to find and install them, guaranteeing your vehicle runs as it should.
Clean air is enjoyable for everyone. Many large cities now require vehicles to undergo emissions testing in order to minimize air pollution in and around metropolitan areas. If your vehicle fails the emissions test, you cannot complete your annual vehicle registration.
Emissions tests minimize harmful pollutants in the air. With nearly 30 million Americans currently diagnosed with asthma, it is even more important to do all we can to keep air clean. By reducing harmful toxins in the air, we protect everyone.
Here at Pfann’s CPR, we not only perform emissions tests, but we can provide repairs if you fail the test. We are your one-stop shop for emissions testing and repairs. Come by our friendly shop today, and we can ensure your vehicle will not only be safe to drive but more environmentally friendly.
The best way to prevent long-term and costly problems with your vehicle is to keep up with its preventative maintenance schedule. One major key to successfully making sure you are doing all you need to do is to read your vehicle’s owner’s manual. Regardless of your vehicle’s make or model, its owner’s manual will contain a maintenance schedule. Every make and model is different, and standby beliefs such as “You have to change your oil every 3,000 miles,” may not apply to your car.
The maintenance schedule within your owner’s manual is provided by the people who understand your vehicle the best—the company that built it. The manufacturer provides suggestions for how often you need to change your oil, filters, driving belts, timing belts and more.
While some preventive maintenance—such as topping off fluids—can be performed by the vehicle’s owner, other, more complicated procedures should be done by experts like the team at Pfann’s CPR. Our team can keep your vehicle in top shape by performing the following maintenance:
- Inspecting and replacing timing belts (preventing damage to other accessories)
- Inspecting and replacing serpentine belts (preventing damage to other accessories)
- Checking and changing oil
- Checking, repairing and replacing battery connection components
- Checking and replacing batteries
- Checking and replacing cabin air filters
This can keep your car comfortable during the hot summer months.
- Checking and replacing your engine air filter
You may need to replace your engine air filter more frequently if you drive in stop-and-go traffic or have a long commute.
- Checking and replacing spark plugs
- Tire rotation
This helps ensure even wear on your tires, which can help prevent blowouts and leaking. It also helps make your ride smoother.
- Tire balancing
Balancing your tires prevents wear, which can significantly improve their life and save you money.
- Wheel alignment
By following your vehicle’s owner’s manual and having your vehicle inspected and maintained regularly, you can greatly reduce problems and save money in the long run. Let the expert team at Pfann’s CPR help your vehicle stay in good condition.

Tire Guide and Tips: Understanding your Tire
For example, the number on your tire may read P225/70-R15, 89H:
- P = Passenger Tire (LT = Light Truck)
- 225 = Overall width of the tire in millimeters
- 70 = Sidewall height (distance from rim to tread) as a percentage of the thread width (known as aspect ratio)
- R = Tire construction, this one is Radial (also, B = Belted Bias, D = Diagonal Bias
- 15 = Represents the size of the wheel in inches
- In this example, the tire has the number 89H. This is the weight capacity of the tire. However, in most cases, you will not see this heading on the sidewall.
- A speed rating is sometimes put in front of the R (or B or D). A straight R rating means that it is rated for speeds of up to 100mph. The manufacturer does not recommended this tire for speeds greater than 100 mph. Other speed ratings are: S=112mph, T=118mph, U=124mph, H=130mph, V=149mph, & a Z rated tire is for speeds in excess of 149mph.
- The V and Z rated tires have excellent dry pavement grip/traction but due to their soft rubber compounds, do not have a long life.
- A tread rating indicates how long a tire should last. This figure is written in small letters on the sidewall of your tire. The higher the number, the longer the tire should last. 100 is the basic tread wear rating.
- The traction rating works just like grading – ‘A’ being the best, ‘B’ is good, and ‘C’ is acceptable. This number is also found on the sidewall.
- Temperature ratings work the same – ‘A’ best, ‘B’ good, ‘C’ acceptable. If you drive your car very hard, you want a temperature rating of ‘A’ because a ‘C’ would fail faster under these conditions. Again, look for this number on the sidewall.
Using the latest in state-of-the-art technology, we will install a safe and effective cleaner to suspend harmful varnish and sludge from the transmission valve body, torque converter and lines and install new high-tech fluid with conditioners.
Just like your engine, you should have your transmission serviced regularly. When Pfann’s Custom Performance & Restoration in Grafton, OH services your transmission, we perform the following services and more.
- Remove and inspect the pan
- Clean or replace the screen
- Clean the pan
- Reinstall the pan
- Install a new gasket
- Replace old transmission fluid with new, high quality fluid
- Make any additional needed changes and adjustments
By replacing the old transmission fluid, the expert team at Pfann’s CPR essentially gives your vehicle’s transmission new life. The new fluid restores your clutch’s holding power. This reduces slip and heat production. Additionally, flushing the old fluid gets rid of small bits of clutch material and metal shavings, which can damage your transmission by clogging passages and wedging themselves between moving parts. Getting rid of the old fluid reduces wear within the transmission.
Replacing old fluid with new also provides better lubrication within the transmission, which boosts the holding ability of the transmission’s friction components. Improved lubrication also results in less heat. By decreasing friction and heat, your transmission will work better for a longer amount of time. A simple service can save you the money and time that come with a major transmission repair or replacement.
For heavy-duty equipment and repairs to metallic components of vehicles, welding is sometimes necessary. However, not all automotive and truck repair shops offer welding as a service. Luckily, the trained and experienced experts at Pfann’s CPR are able to tackle any welding-related repair.
