Preventive Maintenance (3000, 5000, 7500, 12000…mile services)
Every manufacturer has a list of recommended services at certain Mileage intervals. The manufacturer of your vehicle has designed the automobile to run at optimum operating conditions provided that the maintenance is done at the recommended intervals. It is an estimated useful life expectancy of various mechanical parts and vital fluids.
We subscribe to a professional DVD database that outlines recommended maintenance for nearly every make and model at various mileage intervals. Give us a call or send us an e-mail to make an appointment. We will perform the services at your convenience, and often for far less than the new car dealerships would charge.

One of the most important safety items in any moving vehicle is the Braking System. This is a closed and sealed Hydraulic System. There are parts that are not to be regularly replaces and those that will need to. Brake Pads and Brake Rotors/Discs or Drums are friction material that will been to be replaced as they wear out. Minimum thickness regulations and condition of the rotors will dictate if the discs or drums can be machined and reused, or will they require replacement. Brake pads will always need replacement and are not reconditionable items. In addition to friction material, Brake Fluid which provides the Hydraulic power to operate the braking system will need to be exchanged at regular intervals. Brake fluid absorbs moisture which lowers its boiling point, as well as rusting vital brake system components.
We will perform a comprehensive inspection of your braking system, and will report our findings. Give us a call or send us an e-mail to make an appointment. We can perform the Brake service often on the same day, getting you on the road safe and with peace of mind. Print Brake Inspection coupon or Brake Service Coupon.
It is often said that the single best way to minimize car trouble is to change the oil in regular intervals. Consistent oil change rids your engine of impurities and metal shavings that are produced during regular operation of your vehicle.
There are many types of oil like 5W30 or 20W50, or synthetic oil. The lower number specifies viscosity of the oil at low temperatures (0 degrees Fahrenheit), and the higher number specifies viscosity of the oil at high temperatures (210 degrees Fahrenheit), and synthetic oil has synthetic chemicals added according to the manufacturers formulation.
We will replace your engine oil and oil filter with high quality oils specifically recommended for your car by the manufacturer. Give us a call or send us an e-mail to make an appointment. Print an oil change coupon.
Vital Fluid Exchange
In addition to engine oil each vehicle uses various other fluids for purposes of heat transfer, lubrication, and generation of hydraulic power. These fluids are also in need of regular maintenance and exchange. These fluids include the following:
Transmission Fluid: It lubricates the gears, cools the transmission, and carries away metal shavings and particles away from the transmission components.
Power Steering Fluid: It generates the hydraulic power that enables your steering wheel to turn so effortlessly.
Transaxle Fluid: It lubricates the gears, cools the transaxle, and carries away metal shavings and particles away from the transaxle components.
Engine Coolant: It circulates in the engine cavities and then back to the radiator for complete heat transfer and exchange. Coolant is responsible for keeping the engine components cool, as well as providing the source of heat when you turn your heater on in the car on those cold days. Loss of coolant will lead to engine failure and very costly repair.
We will replace your vital fluids with high quality fluids specifically recommended for your car by the manufacturer. Give us a call or send us an e-mail to make an appointment. Print a Vital Fluid Exchange coupon.
Air Conditioning Service
Your cars climate control system is a closed system where engine coolant is used to heat the air entering the car from the heat vents, and the compressed refrigerant is used to cool the air on those hot summer days. Loss of refrigerant or mechanical failure of compression or heat exchange components will cause the air entering the vents to be warm. Is your AC not blowing cold? No problem.
We will service your cars climate control system, making you comfortable again. Give us a call or send us an e-mail to make an appointment. Print an Air Conditioning Service coupon.

Todays automobiles have a high level of sophistication and a high technology content. There are many computing modules, sensors, and electronic management systems to ensure that the car runs as the manufacturers intended. When there is a problem, it will need to be diagnosed and source of problem will need to be pin pointed and faulty piece identified, isolated, and replaced. This requires extensive experience and expertise.
