MAJOR & MINOR REPAIRS

Oil Changes

One of the simplest, most effective and inexpensive ways to help protect the life of your car, especially its engine, is to change the oil and the oil filter regularly.Proper oil maintenance will help extend the life of your vehicle. Generally it is recommended to change your oil every 3,000 miles or 3 months, whichever comes first. (Follow your owner's manual recommendations)

Even if you do not drive often, the engine oil could get contaminated as a result of accumulated moisture. Contaminants are whipped into the oil as it runs through your engine. Neglected oil will eventually turn these contaminants into sludge. Sludge could eventually cause engine failure.

Brakes

Brakes are one of the most important features on your vehicle. Even though you may not think about them while driving, they are constantly protecting you. When you step on the brake pedal, you should have complete confidence your vehicle will stop when you want it to. When your brakes are worn or damaged, you are putting your (and your passenger's) safety at risk.

Accidents can happen for a million reasons, don't let your brakes be one of them. If you suspect your vehicle may need new brakes plus pads or rotors, let our certified technicians take a look. We will inspect your brakes plus pads and rotors and determine if any service is needed.

Timing Belts

A timing belt runs the engine camshaft (or camshafts in a dual-cam engine). It’s called timing belt because its main job is to precisely time valve opening and closing with up-and-down movement of the pistons. Timing belt replacement is one of the high-price maintenance items that many motorists have to deal with.

When to replace the timing belt?

Unfortunately, in most cases, there are no obvious signs the timing belt is near death; it will just break. That’s why we recommend replacing it every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Always check your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Shocks

Shocks and struts are two components of your suspension system that keep your vehicle balanced and riding smoothly with all four wheels on the road. We recommend shock and strut inspections for maintaining excellent car handling characteristics. Blown shocks and struts can cause a vehicle to handle unsafely on public roads.

Some factory shocks may show aging signs after only 30,000 or 40,000 miles. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. Shocks and struts do not require replacing at specific mileage intervals. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorates over time.

Clutch

The clutch’s job is linking your car’s engine to its transmission. Since your engine is always running, even when your wheels aren’t turning, your clutch has to be able to both link and separate. While automatic transmissions have much more clutches, they still have the same basic parts doing the same basic job.

The friction between the clutch plate and the flywheel will wear the plate down over time, though. If the power train is subjected to heavy strains on a regular basis, the clutch may wear out in as little as 35,000 miles. Virtually all clutches should be good for at least 50,000 miles in normal operation. Newer cars perform even better, and clutches that are good for 80,000 - 100,000 miles.

Wheel Bearings

Wheel bearings enable wheels on a car to spin freely and stay secured to the car. Cars have four wheel bearings, one located at each wheel. If the wheel bearings wear out, you will feel the wheels and steering wheel shake. Do not drive the car in this condition and have it checked out as soon as possible by a professional mechanic.

We recommend wheel bearing cleaning, re-packing with grease, and having them inspected every 30,000 miles. This is normally done with a brake service. This is a sealed unit and cannot be serviced. When the wheel bearings go bad, they are simply removed and replaced with new ones.

Axle Shafts

An axle shaft is a narrow, pole-like part that connects a wheel to the gears in the transmission. Axles are part of the system that enables the wheels to rotate. One end of the axle shaft is connected to the transmission and the other end is connected to the wheel. The transmission rotates the axle shafts, which rotates the wheels. Without the axles, the tires will not rotate and the car will not move.

Axle shafts are comprised of four components: shaft, CV joints, grease and the boots. The most common reason for the axle to fail is because of the torn boots . Without the grease, the CV joints will not get lubricated, dirt will enter the joint and the whole axle will eventually wear out.

Alternators

The alternator is the component that charges the battery in your car. When you use electrical components in your car (stereo, lights, etc.), the battery loses power. The alternator recharges the battery, replenishing the lost battery power. The alternator is located in the engine compartment.

If the alternator is not working properly, your car will only stay running for as long as the battery has power stored. Once the battery loses power, your car will not start. Normally, a malfunctioning alternator will turn on the battery warning light or will have a low volt gauge reading. Before installing a new alternator is needed to check the entire charging system.

Radiators

The radiator performs a critical function; it keeps the engine from overheating. While running, the engine produces heat. Coolant flowing through the system absorbs and removes extra heat from the engine. The coolant then passes through the radiator where it cools off and is later circulated back to the engine to absorb heat again.

Follow the service maintenance schedule provided by the manufacturer to get the coolant replaced at regular intervals. It is a good practice to change the coolant every 25,000-40,000 miles. If a defective radiator is not replaced, the overheating of the engine can potentially lead to serious internal engine damage.
