Regular maintenance reduces vehicle break-downs and prolongs the life of your car. Fluids, filters, belts and hoses keep your engine running smoothly and protect it from overheating.
We provide the following additional regular services. Refer to our maintenance guide to see when these services should be performed:
Engine Air Filter Replacement: There are at least 5 benefits of changing your air filter regularly; better gas mileage, reduced emissions, improved acceleration, increased engine life and overall driving ability.
Cabin Air Filter Replacement: Changing your cabin air filter is important not only to help improve the circulation and performance of your air conditioning system but also to help improve the quality of air that is circulated through your car.
Fuel Filter Replacement: Dirt is the #1 enemy of your engine’s fuel system. Even the smallest piece of dirt can damage a fuel injector, resulting in erratic performance, poor gas mileage and in some cases, complete engine shutdown. A clean fuel filter is one of the best ways to ensure dependable, trouble-free performance.
Engine Oil Flush: Crankcase sludge and contaminants can reduce oil circulation and clog screens and filters. The powerful cleansing action of an engine oil flush thoroughly cleans internal engine parts after the old oil is drained and before new oil is added.
PCV Valves and Breathers Replacement: The PCV valve is one-half of the crankcase ventilation system. The other half is the breather filter. The breather flows clean air into the crankcase through a hose on your air filter and the PCV valve lets dirty air and crankcase gases out. These dirty gases and air get sent through the engine to be re-burned for clean emissions. Dirty or clogged PCV valves and breathers can cause an increase in vehicle emissions and fuel consumption.
Power Steering Fluid Service: Power steering fluid is the hydraulic fluid that transmits the power in power steering. Servicing involves flushing out your car’s old power steering fluid and replacing it with new fluid. Changing it can help prolong the life of other, more expensive power steering components such as the pump and the expensive power steering rack.
Engine Coolant/Antifreeze Fluid Flush and Change: Engine Coolant/Antifreeze keeps your engine running cool in the summer and protects it from freezing in the winter. Over time the coolant breaks down and loses its ability to perform these functions. Another factor of coolant ‘age’ is acidity. Old coolant that has become acidic can begin to corrode and eat away at system hoses and gaskets. A Ph test can be performed to determine the condition of your engine coolant.
Auto/Manual Transmission Service: The single most important thing you can do to head off big transmission repairs is to change the fluid on a regular basis. Clean transmission fluid is essential for proper operation and gear lubrication.
4WD/AWD Fluid Service (Differential): Differentials, commonly known as gear boxes, contain gears which connect your car’s axles. They consist of a drive pinion and ring gear to permit the rotation of two shafts at different speeds. Differential gears are part of rear-axle assemblies and four-wheel drive systems. The differential gears are submersed in differential fluid to protect the moving metal surfaces from friction and wear. Normal driving subjects the fluid to high temperatures which eventually break down the fluid. The result is metal to metal contact and extremely high heat that eventually prevents gears from turning the car’s wheels. Proper differential fluid changes will reduce friction and wear and reduce shock and vibration.
Fuel System Service: A fuel system cleaning removes harmful deposits from compression chambers and fuel systems, resulting in cleaner more efficient vehicle operation. This service restores power and performance to your vehicle while reducing harmful emissions and improving fuel economy.
Headlights and Tail lights: We replace burnt out bulbs to keep you safe on the road.
Wiper Blade Replacement: Wiper blades are one of the most neglected parts on vehicles today. Many blades are cracked, split, torn, brittle or worn and in need of replacement. Some do a lousy job of wiping when put to the test. We offer a variety of premium wiper blades to keep you seeing clearly.
Serpentine Belt and Tensioner Replacement: Your engine’s serpentine belt is similar to a chain on a bicycle. Without it, your engine won’t work. Maintaining your serpentine belt is important because it powers your vehicle’s alternator, power steering, water pump and air conditioning. Serpentine belts dry out over time and can start to crack, possibly leaving you stranded if it suddenly breaks.
Battery Replacement: We can test your battery so you aren’t left stranded. If it goes flat for no obvious reason, it may be time to replace your battery.
