Oil Changes

Tune-ups

Tune-ups are due every 30,000 to 100,000 miles depending on your manufacturer’s recommendations. Tune-ups can include spark plugs, plug wires, and or boots, air filter and fuel filter.

Fuel Injection Cleaning

Today’s cars and light trucks are fuel injected.  Fuel is sprayed through the injector in a fine mist pattern.  The injectors get clogged and will cause hesitation, poor gas mileage, rough running and excess emissions.  Injectors should be cleaned every 30,000 miles.   We use a Motor Vac system to clean the fuel injectors and restore your vehicle’s performance.

Steering, Suspension, Shocks and Struts

Steering, Suspension, Shocks and Struts all play a role in how your car handles on the road.  Does your car pull to one side, bounce excessively, rattle or clunk going over bumps?

Exhaust and Catalytic Converters

The most common cause of failure in a catalytic converter in an older car is that it becomes so clogged that the exhaust gases can’t get through it to the muffler and out of the car.  Some symptoms of exhaust and catalytic converter problems are: Your vehicle’s fuel efficiency suddenly drops, Your vehicle doesn’t accelerate when you step on the gas pedal, Your vehicle fails an emissions test, The MIL or Check Engine light comes on.   We will diagnose the problem and recommend if you need a new muffler installed, exhaust pipes or a catalytic converter.
