Regular vehicle maintenance reduces break downs and prolongs the life of your car. The fluids, filters, belts and hoses in your motor keeps it running smoothly and from over heating. We provide the following additional regular services, refer to our maintenance guide for 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 improved drive ability
Cabin Air Filter Replacement: changing your cabin air filter is an important part of regular vehicle maintenance and one that can not only help improve the circulation and performance of your air conditioning system, but one that can also 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 before the oil change and before fresh oil is added.
PCV Valves and Breathers: 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 it involves flushing out your car's old power-steering fluid and then adding fresh power steering fluid. Changing it can help to prolong the life of other, more expensive power-steering components such as the power-steering 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 from freezing in the winter. Overtime as the coolant breaks down it 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 longevity 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): The differentials, commonly known as gear boxes, contain gears which connect your car's axles. They consists 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 can replace your burnt out bulbs to keep you safe on the road.
Wiper Blade Replacement: Wiper blades are one of the most neglected components on vehicles today. Many blades are cracked, split, torn, brittle, worn or otherwise in obvious need of replacement. Others may look okay, but 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 like the 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: If you’ve ever suffered the let-down of a flat car battery, you'll know what a drain it is. If it does go flat for no obvious reason it may be time to replace your battery. Just like the ones in your TV remote control, car batteries need to be replaced at some point. We can provide you early detection for a failing car battery so you won’t get stranded.
