Wheels & Tires Show More
Wheel Balancing can improve handling and reduce tire wear. It only takes half an ounce of uneven weight distribution for a vibration to be felt. Imbalanced wheels can shorten the life of your tires and suspension components.
Tire Rotation preserves balanced handling and traction, and evens out tire wear. Tire rotation can often be done FREE of charge with an oil change while the vehicle is off the ground.Make an Appointment
Brakes Show More
Brake Pads are located at the top of each brake disk, working with the disks to stop the vehicle. Over time, these pads wear away, and should be replaced when they are less than 1/8” thick.
Disks & Rotors are key to stopping the movement on the wheel when pressure is applied to the brakes. Each disk is checked for rough spots or signs of damage. If a disk or rotor is damaged, it should be replaced immediately.
Brake Lines can become cracked and rigid over time. During every brake check, brake lines are visually inspected to ensure the safety of their condition.
Brake Fluid transfers hydraulic pressure from the pedal to your brakes. It can absorb moisture and lose integrity, and should be replaced periodically with a brake fluid flush.
Brake Calipers must be lubricated per your vehicle's scheduled maintenance plan to ensure that your vehicle maintains its brake capacity.Make an Appointment
Flushes & Filters Show More
Brake Fluid Flushes are necessary to keep ABS brake systems performing properly. Your brake system fluid is vitally important to keep you safe on the road.
Power Steering Flushes can reduce or eliminate steering noise and help to avoid unexpected and/or expensive power steering problems. Steering fluid is a form of lubrication used to help your car’s power steering system run smoothly and efficiently.
Transmission Flushes can prevent larger, more costly transmission-related problems down the road.
Oil Filters trap contaminates in the oil and should be changed with the engine oil.
Engine Air Filters trap dirt that could otherwise damage your engine. Oil filters should be inspected frequently and changed when the collected dirt reduces its ability to let air through.
Cabin Air Filters reduce Interior pollen, bacteria, dust, and allergens. Cabin air filters should be replaced regularly to maintain the air quality in your vehicle, as well as the heating and cooling efficiency of your HVAC system.
Fuel Filters reduce contaminates from entering your fuel system that can be harmful and/or reduce fuel efficiency.Make an Appointment
