You depend on your car. Your car depends on you, too, to help keep it running strong. We recommend regular tune-ups and maintenance to help keep your car safe, performing well, and dependable. Regular maintenance can also help spot a potential problem or diagnose a performance issue and protect against expensive repairs.
Not sure what needs to be done when? Stop by, we are happy to create a customized schedule for your specific vehicle. If money is tight we can help prioritize maintenance and repair tasks in order to keep your vehicle safely on the road.
Engine Oil. Transmission Fluid. Transfer Case and Differential Oil. Coolant.
The list of these vehicle-specific fluids grows longer every day. Each new version of a car requires specially formulated fluid, and using the wrong type can cause expensive repairs.
We know which ones to use! Let us take care of your fluid services, and be confident that you'll be safely back on the road in no time.
Modern vehicles go longer between tune ups, but don't neglect the heart of your vehicle.
On most 1996 and newer vehicles a tune up consists of changing the spark plugs, spark plug wires and/or coil boots, distributor cap and rotor, fuel filter (if serviceable) and air filter. Newer vehicles may only need spark plugs and coil boots.
Different engines require different types of spark plugs: copper core, platinum, laser platinum, irridium; all have different life expectancies. For optimal performance, stick to the original equipment specification.
SUSPENSION & TIRES
Is your vehicle equipped with shocks, struts, or both? Regardless, they have a life expectancy of about 50,000 miles.
Shocks and Struts keep your tires pressed firmly to the road to help with handling and stability, and absorb road impacts for a smoother ride. Worn parts will prematurely wear tires. We can tell a lot about your vehicle's needs by inspecting the tire tread wear patterns.
Shocks and Struts are expensive components to replace. We use parts with a lifetime warranty to get the most value for your dollar.
