We will check all the fluids that are important to keeping your vehicle running well. Our technician will check the oil and look for dirty or murky oil that needs to be changed. Oil can cause problems with how the engine runs and other parts. Coolant should be checked because it keeps the engine cool and helps with the heat in the winter. Brake fluid that is not checked or changed can mean the difference between brakes that need repair and are safe to drive. We check transmission fluid, another fluid that should be changed on occasion. New windshield wiper fluid is important to keep the windshield clean. We will change these fluids when they are low, dirty, or need changing to keep the car safe from accidents and breakdowns.
Belts and hose wear out often causing a breakdown on the road or highway. Hoses will leak liquid and belts break leaving the car parts to stop working. A serpentine belt powers the air condition compressor, fan, and air injection pump. Breaks to this belt can cause engine overheating and permanent damage. The serpentine belt should be inspected every time you have an oil change. A timing belt turns the crankshaft and helps the engine work. When it breaks it causes engine damage and when it slips it should be repaired quickly. When we find a damaged belt we will replace it the same day. Hoses help the coolant flow between the engine, radiator, and heating block. They crack, leak and break leading to an overheated engine and break downs. When we find problems we will replace them and connect them properly.
We will test the tire pressure and make sure it is right the tire, tire thread, and overall condition. We will rotate tires and help you find new ones for the season. Tires can lead to breakdown on the road, flats,and serious problems. We test shocks and struts because often they are not checked for damage.
Our trained technicians will check the battery because often it wears out or needs to be charged. Wear in the summer and winter puts strain on the battery. We check cooling and air conditioning and for general leaks.
