Oil Change Service
Replace engine oil filter and up to 5 quarts of oil
Underhood inspection of fluids, belts hoses and battery
Set tire pressure to manufacturer specs
Top off wiper washer fluid

Automatic Transmission service
Remove transmission oil pan and replace internal filter (if equipped), top off fluid and test drive. This service is designed for regular maintenance and should be performed with a transmission flush if the fluid is extremely dirty or burnt. This service only replaces approximately 50-60% of the fluid.


Automatic Transmission flush
This service hooks into the cooler lines and completely flushes the transmission fluid, thereby replacing 100% of the fluid. For best results, you should perform this service along with the traditional transmission service. By doing both services together, you start off with clean fluid and a new filter. Keep in mind that both of these services are done for maintenance and if you are having a shifting problem, additional repairs may be required.


Cooling system service
Engine coolant loses some of its protective qualities after a period of time. This is why you should replace the engine coolant at 30,000 mile intervals if your engine has the traditional coolant (the green stuff) and 60,000 mile intervals for most extended life coolants (the red stuff). Some manufacturers will state 100,000 mile intervals for extended life coolant but in reality it should be replaced more often. When this service is performed, the entire cooling system is inspected to determine if hoses or other components need replacement. Coolant hoses are recommended to be replaced every 4 years, regardless of how many miles they have on them.


Timing belt replacement
Many of today’s engines utilize a timing belt. If this belt breaks, serious engine damage could occur. This is why the vehicle manufacturer will specify certain intervals at which this belt should be replaced. The mileage will vary from 60,000 to 90,000 miles with some recommending replacement at 105,000 miles. We recommend timing belt replacement at 90,000 miles or your manufacturer’s specified interval, whichever is less.


Minor maintenance service
This service includes an oil change, full vehicle inspection including the brakes and suspension, inspection of all exterior lights, windshield wipers and a battery service. This service should be performed in between your major maintenance services to help keep your car in top running order.


Major maintenance service
This is typically your 30/60/90,000 mile service. Each manufacturer has their own recommendations on what services should be performed at this interval. Ask your service advisor for more information on keeping your car maintained.


Brakes
We first perform a complete inspection of the braking system. Without doing this, we cannot adequately determine what your car really needs or how much it will cost. Our technicians can repair all braking systems including the newer anti-lock brake systems. Each car requires different components to repair the braking system so please schedule an appointment to have your brakes inspected.


Suspension/shocks/struts
By replacing the shocks and struts on your vehicle you can maintain the ride quality, handling characteristics and performance of your automobile. Shocks and struts wear out very gradually and most people can’t feel the difference until they are replaced and the ride and handling is firm and crisp. Any time a shock or strut is leaking it is impossible for it to do its job properly and should be replaced. On most vehicles, when the front struts are replaced an alignment should also be performed.


Engine diagnostics
If your car is not running properly, won’t start or has a ‘check engine’ light on, you will need some diagnostics. This procedure first communicates with your car’s computer to find out what the computer thinks is wrong. We then verify component failure to make sure the computer is not simply confused. After determining the cause of your problem, we will recommend the necessary repairs. Our cars are becoming mobile computer systems and the diagnostics process is becoming more complicated with every new model. Our experienced technicians and state-of-the-art equipment will help to fix your problem.


Clutches
The clutch is what engages the transmission to the engine. Where and how you drive will have a huge impact on how long this part will last. On some vehicles, additional parts replacement may be required or recommended at the time of clutch replacement. Ask us about clutch replacement at the first sign of problems.


Batteries/Charging System
The battery is the lifeblood of your vehicle. It is responsible for starting your car and running many of the accessories on the vehicle. The battery must endure temperature extremes and still be able to perform. The natural venting of fumes from the battery will cause corrosion on the battery terminals. This must be periodically cleaned. The alternator is responsible for operating all the electrical accessories while the engine is running. Everything from the turn signals to the engine computer to the fuel pump is powered by the battery and alternator. The alternator also recharges the battery after it is used to start the engine. Electrical system problems can be slight or major. We sell batteries and offer electrical system repairs and alternator replacement using quality parts.

Heat/Air Conditioning
The heating and air conditioning system, also known as climate control, is what keeps us comfortable when we drive our cars. The coolant should be replaced periodically. Proper service and diagnosis of the air conditioning system and related repairs should only be done by a qualified technician. There are certain EPA regulations and procedures that must be followed for proper repair and recovery of the refrigerant. An improper repair can result in damage to the rest of the system. Please allow our qualified technicians to service your heating and air conditioning system.
