The retro-styled 2006 Jeep Commander was designed new from the ground up, but there is no question about its heritage, one look and you know it's a Jeep. K&N Engineering wasted no time and has developed a performance air intake system (57-1548) for the 4.7 liter V8 engine.

K&N also has the same system available to its 2005 and 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee sibling with the 4.7 liter V8 engine.

The K&N performance air intake system for the 2006 Jeep Commander 4.7 liter V8 is one of the first on the market for this vehicle. K&N tests have shown a horsepower gain of 9.47 HP @ 4397 RPM with the 57-1548 intake.

"The horsepower gain is really good for a vehicle that does not have a mass air flow sensor," said K&N Performance Kit Manager Bert Heck. "The engine compartment is really busy and even though the Commander does not have a lot of open space our engineers were able to knock out a system that provides good power gains." The development side of 57-1548 was extensive when it boiled down to the design work, said Heck.

This air intake system uses a conical shaped chrome top high-flow air filter (RF-1048) and powder coated aluminum heat shield in place of the vehicle's stock air box. The result is an air filter that captures harmful particles, provides more surface area, improves air flow, and increases service life. This K&N air filter performs for up to 100,000 miles before service is required depending on driving conditions. Improving the air path between the filter and the motor is the rotationally-molded high-density polyethylene tube. It offers the most flexibility in design and outstanding horsepower numbers. It takes about 90 minutes or less to install this system with simple hand tools. It is covered by K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty and is 50 state street legal.

How to Change BMW Battery?

Once you are sure you need to replace your battery you can either pay someone else to do it for you, or do it yourself.

If you decide to save money on labor, first thing you need to do is get the right battery. It's easy, just ask the parts seller to look up the correct application. Make sure you are getting the same amp battery as listed for your car.

Exchange procedure is quite simple and takes about ten minutes. You will need a crescent wrench and a screwdriver.
Begin with loosening the casble clamps attached to the battery terminals. Remove the negative battery cable FIRST, and reconnect it LAST. Then unscrew the hold-down brace which keeps battery in place. Take out old battery and place a new one instead, reversing the whole procedure.

That's it! Your done!

Before closing the hood of your new battery, make sure all cables and terminal ends are clean and not cracked. This will assure positive connection.

Make Your Tires Last Longer!

There are many spray-on tire-care products on the market today. Altough glossy-black look is what makes them appear in good condition, we suggest you go few steps further.
You can use regular soap pads to clean white letters and remove brown brake dust from the sidewalls.
It should become your daily routine that your check your tires daily for bulges and inspect air pressure at every gas stop. Right inflation pressure will make your tire last longer plus it will improve the vehicle's fuel economy. Not enough air in your tires causes shoulders to wear faster than the centers. Too much air, on the other hand, makes the center strips go bald earlier.

Assuming that your vehicle is aligned properly, less expensive brands of tires should last up to 30,000 miles; more expensive brands - up to 50,000 miles. Any tire older than 5 years should be exchanged.

This tech tip is brought to you by www.autopartsway.com - one of the largest online retailers of auto parts, wheels and tires.
