Regular tune-ups can do wonders to the performance of your car. For ultimate efficiency and power, we’ll check belts, hoses, spark plugs and more to extend your vehicles life expectancy.

Auto Care Myth Busting

“Only a dealership should be doing my scheduled maintenance.”

You don’t always have to go to your car dealership to get quality service on your car, especially when your budget doesn’t allow for it. Repair shops are filled with experienced and highly qualified technicians, who most times have worked for dealerships anyway. With the right expertise, up-to-date tools and equipment to perform the required service to your manufacturer’s specifications, we can preserve your warranty. Give us a call, and we’ll take you through all the details! us!

“Premium gasoline means premium performance.”

Choosing the right fuel for your car is the best investment you can make. “Premium fuel only” is expensive and has benefits that work for the performance of your car. However, unless stated explicitly by your car’s manual, buying premium fuel can be a total waste of cash. In the US in 2015, drivers wasted more than $2 billion using premium fuel in cars that were designed to run on regular unleaded fuel. 

“Use a penny to test if your tires need replacing. ” 

This age-old trick has been passed down generations, and it is meant to test whether our tires need to be replaced. But by the time you get to the tread depth of your tire, your tire may already be compromised. A quarter may be your best bet in this regard!

Frequently Asked Questions

What was that bump, clunk, squeal, or screech, and should I worry? 

Any professional mechanic knows that you can’t directly answer this question. There are a variety of things that could cause different sounds coming from your car. To give you the best answer, a proper diagnostic test is required. If your heart sinks every time you hear a mysterious sound from your car, we urge you to bring it in so we can find the cause.

Does it damage my car if I drive with the “check engine” light on? 

Generally, driving with the light flashing for a short distance won’t harm your car. However, it is possible that you will experience reduced performance when driving for long distances. In our opinion, though, it would be best that you let us check your car and see what exactly is wrong before causing long-term damage.

What’s my car’s correct tire pressure?

Your car manufacturer should have the recommended tire pressure set on your car tires. Tire pressure is measured using pounds per square inch (PSI). If you don’t know your tire pressure, you can find it on the side of your tires or on the inside of your drivers door. It’s ideal to have the correct inflated tires to help you get better fuel mileage and reduce tire wear.
