Changing the oil and the oil filter regularly is one of the simplest, most effective and inexpensive ways to help protect the life of your car, especially its engine. We use your auto manufacturer’s recommended oil, regular or synthetic, and only quality grade oil products. New oil reduces friction, lessens wear, provides lubrication, and forms a seal between the pistons, rings and cylinder walls while helping to cool engine parts. Without the cleaning action of new oil, carbon and varnish buildup would be toxic to the engine. And engine oil even dampens the shock and noise of moving parts.
While you are here we will inspect your car inside, outside, under the hood and underneath the car. We’ll check engine air filter, brake fluid, power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid, coolant / antifreeze. We will check your brakes, shocks and struts, muffler, tires, and wheel alignment.
You know you need brake repair when - you hear grinding or constant squealing during braking - - the brake pedal is spongy or slow to respond - the brake dashboard light glows amber, indicating problems with the anti-lock brake system (ABS) - the brake dashboard light is red, indicating a system imbalance.
Any time you notice these or other symptoms, it’s a good idea to have your brakes checked. We will inspection your brake system, calipers, rotors, pads, brake fluid, and explain exactly the appropriate and safe required repair.
Regular engine tune-ups bring power and efficiency back to your car. We inspect all of your engine components, run diagnostic checks when needed for timing and idle, and install new parts, including injectors, spark plugs and fuel filters, air filter, cabin filter as needed. After our tune-up, you'll discover your engine starts easier, runs smoother and is more efficient. A regular engine tune-up will lower emissions, improve fuel economy and restore lost power. When you get car tune-ups based on your vehicle manufacturer's recommendations, you're investing in the long-term health of your car, saving you time and money.
