Brakes Fluid Flush
Without brake fluid, the brakes stop functioning and you lose control of your car. You should change your brake fluid about once a year. A brake fluid flush removes deposits and varnish and adds rust protection so you can rely on your vehicle in every situation.
Engine Oil Flush
Engine oil’s most important function is to keep the moving parts of the engine lubricated. Without lubrication, these parts grind against each other and the engine stops working. An engine oil flush replaces the fluid and cleans the engine of particles and sludge for optimum performance.
Power Steering Fluid
Power steering fluid ensures that you have control over your car. Like all vehicle fluids, it breaks down over time, turning from red or pink to dark brown and making it almost impossible to maneuver the car. We assess your power steering fluid levels and determine whether you need a service. This is something your car cannot do without.
Radiator Coolant Flush
Coolant—also known as antifreeze—keeps your radiator from overheating. It is recommended you change your coolant every 2-3 years or 30,000 miles. Coolant can corrode your engine if not changed in time. A coolant flush completely rids your engine of old coolant and replaces it with fresh fluid.
30,000-60,000-90,000 Mile Schedule Maintenance
When your car hits 30,000, 60,000, and 90,000 miles, it needs maintenance service. We inspect the car from top to bottom, checking the suspension, brakes, tires, fluid levels, engine, belts, hoses, and everything in between. These maintenance services are crucial to your car’s safety and longevity. Bring it in when it’s time; we’ll give it the service it deserves.
Alignment is the adjustment of tire position to maximize efficiency. Each tire is corrected and straightened to conform to the manufacturer’s specifications. An alignment increases gas mileage and tire life while reducing vehicle stress. If your tires are unevenly worn or occasionally pulling to one side, it may be time to get an alignment.
The battery provides the initial charge needed to start the engine. It also powers the various electrical components in your car, from the headlights to the steering. The battery should be replaced once around every three years.
Most vehicles have a single, continuous belt that drives many different components in the engine. This is called a serpentine belt and it gradually wears down with use. Chirping, squealing, or growling sounds coming from the engine are all signs that the serpentine belt should be checked. The belt should be changed every four to five years, or every 50,000 miles.
Brakes perhaps suffer the most intense wear and tear in a vehicle. Brake pads wear thin, making it difficult to stop the car. Air finds its way into the brake lines, risking a complete failure of the system. Different components need to be checked at different times. Bring your car in if your brakes are not responsive to see if repairs or replacement are in order.
Cabin Filter Cleaning
The cabin filter cleans the air coming through your air conditioning unit. As the filter gets dirty it looses efficiency and creates musty odors in your vehicle. A cabin filter cleaning reduces mold, bacteria and fungi, and vastly improves the air quality inside your car. If the quality of air coming through your air conditioning is lessening, get your cabin filter cleaned.
Sometimes you know something is wrong with your car but you can’t put your finger on it. Maybe your engine is lagging or feels less powerful. Maybe it makes a strange sound when you accelerate. Bring it in. We’ll take a look and fix it up, or tell you what you can do to avoid the problem. That’s what we do.
Hoses carry fluids around the engine. They maintain the health of your vehicle; they are also one of the engine’s weakest structural component. Faulty hoses loose their pliability, becoming soft and mushy, or else cracking and splitting. Hoses should be replaced every four years.
The suspension system keeps the wheels in contact with the road while maximizing comfort and driving ability. It has many parts, all of which work together to keep the ride smooth. If your car grinds and drags, slips from side to side, or clunks over bumps, it’s a good idea to get your suspension system checked.
Tires wear down as the miles build up. Tires also wear differently, depending on where they are positioned. It’s important to keep the wear even, otherwise it becomes difficult to steer. A tire rotation moves the front tires to the back and the back tires to the front to ensure consistency and reliability. It’s recommended to get a tire rotation every 3,000—5,000 miles.
Windshield Wiper Replacement
Windshield wipers are your guard against the elements. Windshield wipers become brittle and malformed when exposed to the sun for extended periods of time, leaving streaks and residue across the glass. It is recommended you change your windshield wipers once every six months.
