"What We Repair" Domestic & Import
Today’s vehicles are different from manufacture to manufacture, but they do have basic similarities as well. They all use engines that are powered by gas or diesel, have transmissions, drivetrain, creature features, brakes, and more. Whether it’s a European import or a Domestic breed, things do wear out and need maintenance or replacing. The best way to know your car is being taken care of to give you many years and miles are to be proactive in its care. All fluids that make a vehicle move eventually wear out. As miles accrue, metal fragmentation occurs causing gear oils to be contaminated with metal particles, reducing their ability to lubricate internal parts.
Engine oil breaks down from combustion and a dirty environment. Brake fluid becomes contaminated from seals wearing out becoming part of the fluid. Basically, the same thing happens with every fluid in a vehicle. Every system that uses a fluid eventually degrades and then contaminates the fluid itself.
The fuel quality today is a far cry from being real gas. The use of oxygenated fuels is causing some problems in our fuel injection systems. The latest design of fuel delivery is “direct injection” which is excellent in theory but the industry is having some real problems with this. A good way to prevent fuel system problems is to perform a fuel induction service. All gas engines still have spark plugs and they are normally replaced at 60,000-90,000 miles. Car manufactures are coming up with some incredibly different oil viscosities. It is imperative to stay with the correct oil your car is designed for. Altering from this and using inferior fuel can cause some serious engine problems.
The main goal at our shop is to help you by doing the repair your car needs. We know that taking care of the maintenance is critical and we can help make sense of what the maintenance schedules are recommending.
