Motor oil is the lifeblood of your engine. It picks up dirt, particles and other impurities and deposits them in the oil filter to keep your engine clean. Routine oil changes keep all the moving parts moving, and cut down on friction to cool the motor so your vehicle keeps running longer. Check your owner’s manual to find out when your vehicle needs an oil change. And don’t forget to change your oil regularly.

If it weren’t for the CV axle, your tires wouldn’t go round and round. This axle is made up of two joints, both of which use torque from your transmission to move your wheels forward. These joints are a collection of bearings and cages that are protected by the CV boot. Regular inspections of the CV boot will ensure it is sealed so no dirt or grime gets in to wear down your joints, which will provide you with a smoother ride. Which is great, because nobody wants a car with arthritis.
Regular inspection of the CV boot will ensure it is seeled so no dirt or grime gets in to ear down the internal joints, providing a much smoother ride.
TUNING & BRAKES
The only thing better than a car that goes is a car that stops. Which is why we offer free brake inspections. Routine inspections keep your vehicle stopping safer, longer. How often you have to change your brakes depends on a lot of things: driving conditions, rotor thickness, quality of brake pads, and more. A routine brake inspection with every other oil change makes certain that your braking system is safe. If you wait too long between services, you might have to get your brake rotors machined or even replaced, which gets expensive. So stop in for routine brake check-ups before you can’t stop anymore.
Keep your cool with regular A/C maintenance. Car A/C systems have been around since the 1930s, removing the humidity and cooling the interior of your car using three main parts: the compressor, condenser, and evaporator. With your windows up and A/C on, you can increase your highway fuel efficiency by at least 20 percent, which saves you time, money and breaking into a sweat halfway to your mother-in-law’s house.
Exhaust & Cat Converters
Catalytic converters use a combination of heat and specialty metals to convert carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons into water vapor and carbon dioxide, which are commonly found in our atmosphere. The rest of your exhaust system — resonators, mufflers, exhaust manifolds and pipes — help quiet and cool the engine. Every piece of an exhaust system is an important part of your vehicle and the environment.
Your exhaust system is an important part of your vehicle and the environment. It keeps your engine quiet and cool, and converts harmful molecules.
An automotive battery is a rechargeable battery that supplies electric energy to an automobile.
As well as starting the engine an SLI battery supplies the extra power necessary when the vehicle's electrical requirements exceeds the supply from the charging system. It is also a stabilizer, evening out potentially-damaging voltage spikes.
Battery electric vehicles are powered by a high-voltage electric vehicle battery, but they usually have an automotive battery as well, so that it can be equipped with standard automotive accessories which are designed to run on 12 V.
WHEELS & SUSPENSION
Steering & Suspension
Your car’s suspension system is part of the chassis, which is comprised of all the parts on the underbelly of your car (shocks, struts, coil & leaf springs, and more). All of these parts have been helping smooth out bumpy rides for centuries, starting with horse-drawn carriages. Routine inspections help to maintain these important suspension parts so that you can enjoy a smoother ride and avoid costly repairs down the road. Wheel alignments, for example, help your tires last longer, saving you from purchasing a new set too often.
