AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE
For an A/C service, your system will be purged, cleaned and checked for leaks. This will flush oil and debris
from your A/C system. The typical AC compressor has cylinders, pistons, piston rings, valves, bearings, etc.
When a compressor fails it often sheds fragments of these internal components. This can happen all at once
or slowly over time. If your system has no major problems, we will add the needed freon/refrigerant and
your car will be cool once again.
The alternator is used to recharge the vehicles battery, which in turn powers the vehicles electronics. The
battery is the vehicles primary source of power so when the engine is running, the alternator is continually
charging the battery to keep it from dying. The most common reason an alternator fails is due to the alternator
bearing overheating and getting damaged. Another cause is for the alternator belt (serpentine belt) to get
worn out. If the belt gets worn out, it will slip when it tries to rotate the alternator rotor, and this will cause a
failure to generate a current.
Some signs of a failing battery include difficulty starting the vehicle in the morning or the tendency for your
battery to quickly run down if you leave the headlights on while the car is parked. If you suddenly find yourself
needing jump starts, your battery is probably the reason. For your convenience we sell Interstate Batteries.
Ensuring all belts, belt tensioners and pulleys are in good working order will help to prevent breakdowns. It is
important to have your belts regularly inspected by professionals.
You may need a brake job if you're having brake problems such as grabbing, pulling, low or soft pedal, pedal
vibration, noise, etc. There is no specific mileage interval at which the brakes need to be replaced because
brake wear varies depending on how the vehicle is driven, the braking habits of the driver, the weight of the
vehicle, the design of the brake system and a dozen other variables. If you think you may need new brakes
make an appointment and we can check them for you.
CHECK ENGINE LIGHT
The check engine light is designed to keep the driver informed of any number of sensor failures or engine
irregularities. When the Engine control unit detects a problem it cannot fix, it trips the Check Engine Light and
stores a trouble code for later retrieval that points the mechanic toward possible systems or mechanisms
COMPUTER ENGINE DIAGNOSTIC
We use auto diagnostics software that can reset the check engine light (CEL) in the dash, pull trouble codes
stored in the engine control unit (ECU), and narrow down potential causes for problems. Virtually all modern
vehicles include an ECU, also called an engine control module (ECM) that monitors various sensors located
throughout the engine, fuel and exhaust systems.
The cooling system can suffer a loss of efficiency due to neglect, and overheating can occur. Overheating can
cause expensive internal engine damage. The entire cooling system is first cleaned and then all debris and
worn out coolant is completely removed from the system. Then, fresh new premium coolant is added.
We use BG brand cleaners which include Conditioners to prevent rust and corrosion.
In order to maximise engine efficiency and prolonged usage a vehicle should have its engine oil changed on a
regular basis. This includes changing the oil, oil filter, check tire pressure and top all fluids.
SHOCKS & STRUTS
Shock absorbers and struts do more than just provide a comfortable ride. Their most important function is to
influence the control and handling of your vehicle. Under normal conditions, shocks & struts wear out
It’s a good idea to check your tires once a month for visible damage and excess wear. It is also
recommended that you check your tire pressure monthly to maintain optimal gas mileage. All tires wear out
After 30,000 miles, transmission fluid begins to show its age as it turns brown in color and oxidizes due to the
combination of time and heat. Deposits begin to form around the transmission’s many moving parts, resulting in
valves that stick and gears that slip or are sluggish and chatter as they shift. Rather than just removing the
fluid found in the bottom of the pan, the entire transmission is cleaned and replenished with the use of special
equipment. The transmission and its torque converter have all of their old contaminated fluid removed while
new fluid and premium conditioners are added.
Clogged fuel injectors, dirty air and fuel filters, bad spark plugs and wires, can all decrease engine
performance and contribute to decreased gas mileage. A standard tune-up done at the suggested
maintenance interval for your vehicle will make an engine easier to start, improve fuel economy, lower
emissions and restore lost power.
