Preventative Maintenance

Lube, Oil, and Filter

We take all of the necessary steps when preforming even the most routine maintenance on your car to ensure the best performance and outcome. If you need other repairs we will prioritize and price them out for you.We will let you know of any safety concerns right away, this way you can budget your repairs.

Tune ups

Spark plugs, ignition wires, ignition coils, belts, hoses, tires, air filters, fuel filters, radiator flush, and batteries are some of the items that may need to be replaced when it comes time for a tune up.

Hoses

Hoses may only be a small fraction of what makes up your car, but they are just as important as the key that starts it. We can replace, and make sure all your hoses work.

Filters

The air filter is a paper filter that stops airborne contaminants from getting sucked into your car’s engine. Things like dust, leaves, and other debris from the outside can do serious damage to your engine, so keeping the filters fresh is an easy step to avoid taking on a more expensive repair later. Some cars still have fuel filters which also need to be changed.

Timing Belt and Belt Services

Timing belts usually need to be serviced between 80,000 and 100,000 miles (This is a general statement. You can verify the suggested mileage in your manual from your manufacturer). Not all cars have timing belts, but if yours does, and it breaks, it can cause serious internal damage. You can also verify this in your car manual. Most newer cars have what is called a serpentine belt. This belt needs to be changed because it is made of rubber and can crack and harden over time. The serpentine belt is important because it can affect your alternator, power steering, or your air conditioning. Make sure all of your belts are in working order, they are an easy fix, but a crucial part of proper vehicular functionality.
