Services

Brake and Rotor Service

Our skilled staff members check for worn and failing brakes and you can be sure that we take the utmost care to perform a thorough inspection. We check disc brakes, drum brakes and all the brake line that connects the braking system together. Even a small leak in a brake hose can cause an unsafe condition, so we make sure they are always intact.

Oil and Filter Service

Motor oil or engine oil is an oil used for lubrication of various internal combustion engines. The main function is to lubricate moving parts; it also cleans, inhibits corrosion, improves sealing, and cools the engine by carrying heat away from moving parts. An oil and filter change involves draining out the old motor oil and replacing it with fresh, new motor oil. The oil filter also gets replaced at the same time.

General Maintenance Service

The key to keeping vehicles running well-today and down the road-is routine maintenance. Yet many drivers tend to stall when it comes to keeping up with some everyday auto-basics. A recent survey by the Car Care Council found:

  • 25% of cars had low or dirty engine oil.
  • 13% had low or contaminated brake fluid.
  • 18% had dirty air filters.
  • 17% had inadequate cooling protection or low coolant levels.
  • 16% needed new windshield wiper and 27% had low or contaminated washer fluid.
  • 18% needed new belts

Overall, 89% of vehicles were in need of at least one service or repair.

Tune Up Service

If you notice your vehicle’s fuel efficiency has dropped a tune-up may be the solution. The problem may be fuel filters that are dirty, faulty spark plugs, or fuel injectors that have been damaged. All of these issues are checks during a tune-up. Often times when a vehicle has issues starting or the check engine light is on, it is a sign a tune-up is needed. Once again bad spark plugs could be the issue.

Timing Belt Service

Many of today’s engines use timing belts, but not all. Some engines still use a timing chain and sprocket arrangement. A timing belt is a precision component with teeth that mesh exactly with its mating sprockets. The belt’s teeth are precision molded from a special rubber compound for good mesh and long life. While these belts have a long lifespan, often times they will need to be replaced as preventative maintenance around the 100,000 mile mark.

Water Pump Service

The water pump, a container made of aluminum or iron, is part of the cooling system. It contains an impeller (looks like a fan) that circulates water and coolant throughout the cooling system, keeping the engine from overheating. It is located in the engine compartment. For the water pump to work, it needs to turn. This is accomplished either by the drive belt or timing belt/chain. If the water pump is not working, the coolant will not circulate through the cooling system causing the engine to overheat and get severe damages.
