Oil Change and Other Fluids

Cars and trucks rely on a variety of fluids to run properly. While these fluids can usually last quite a while, you'll still need to have them checked and topped off from time to time.

  • The humble oil change is one of the most common and important services. Engine oil lubricates the various moving parts in your engine, so it's important to make sure you change out for clean oil regularly.
  • Topping off your wiper fluid is a smart move. This simple service can make sure that you're ready to clean off your windshield when you need to.
  • Filling up or changing antifreeze/coolant fluid is important to helping your engine maintain proper temperatures. In summer, it prevents the engine from overheating. In winter, it prevents components from freezing solid.

Brakes

Brakes are among the most important components in any vehicle. You'll need to come to a stop safely, after all. Even regular driving conditions can put brake components through the ringer, so brake repairs are integral to a sound routine maintenance strategy.

One of the most common brake services at our shop is installing new brake pads. Brake pads are designed to wear down naturally, providing much of the friction that brings your vehicle to a stop. Most sets last 25,000 to 50,000 miles, but these intervals can vary with different driving habits. It's smart to have your brake pads checked regularly and replaced when necessary. You may be able to tell when it's time for new brake pads by a grinding feeling through the brake pedal or a squeaking sound during braking.

Wheels and Tires

Services for wheels and tires are important for handling, safety, and comfort alike.

A simple, yet important service for any vehicle is regular tire pressure checks. Rolling on over-filled or under-filled tires can be dangerous, risking potential blowouts. Checking tire pressure regularly can help you make sure your tires are filled to the proper pressure.

Tire rotations are important as well. This service moves tires to different positions on your car, evening out wear patterns and promoting greater longevity for the whole set.

Wheel alignments are important as well. If a wheel is out of alignment, it means it's not turning straight and true. This can lead to diminished handling and excessive tire wear. Your technician can detect if a wheel is out of alignment and correct it accordingly.
