oil changes & fluid
Engines are comprised of hundreds of moving parts, many of which require lubrication to prevent damage. Motor oil not only assists in lubrication, but it also cools the engine down by preventing friction and over-heating.
Regular oil changes prevent sludge buildup, maximize engine longevity and filter out sediment from wear-and-tear. Depending on the oil type, oil changes are recommended every 3,000-7,000 miles.
Our certified mechanics can provide the proper oil type and oil filter much cheaper than the big guys, keeping more money in your pocket where it belongs.

Clean transmission fluid is important in helping your car shift between gears smoothly. Like the engine, there are many small components within the transmission, all of which need to be lubricated.
Transmission fluid deteriorates over time, with frequency varying by transmission type. Typically flushes need to be done every 100,000 miles, however each manufacturer's recommendations differ.
Many cars don't have dipsticks to check your fluid level. There are also many types of transmission fluid, all of which differ depending on your car type. For an accurate transmission fluid check or to determine your fluid type, we are just a phone call away!
With temperature fluctuation, another important fluid your car needs is antifreeze. Also known as coolant, this fluid circulates through your system to keep it from getting too hot.
Due to degradation, coolant also needs to be changed. When your coolant is no longer meeting expectations, you run the risk of overheating your car and ruining your engine. It is vitally important to constantly check your coolant levels and perform flushes every 30,000-50,000 miles.
Checking the coolant should only be done when your engine is cool. When the car is running or even remotely hot, checking the coolant can be extremely dangerous. We strongly recommend reaching out to us with any questions about coolant types, coolant levels or to schedule an appointment for radiator service.
Brake fluid is used to lubricate and protect the components of your brake system. Cylinders, pistons, seals, and valves—fluid helps protect them and prevent corrosion and moisture from entering the system.
Your vehicle shouldn't lose fluid from normal wear and tear. If your brake fluid level is low there may be a leak somewhere in your system, which could result in a dangerous reduction in brake performance.
Most fluid types used in vehicles are DOT3 or DOT4. If you are unsure of your brake fluid type, check your reservoir cap, owners manual or give us a call.
Power steering fluid is what makes turning your steering wheel easy. While these fluid flushes are not needed on a regular basis, it is still important to keep an eye on the fluid level.
Your power steering fluid can be found in a clear reservoir near the top of your engine bay. Because the reservoir is clear, you don’t have to remove a cap to check the level. If the fluid is low, there may be a leak somewhere in your system.
If a squealing sound can be heard when turning your steering wheel, it is unusually difficult to turn, or you notice a small red puddle underneath your car, you may need professional help.
When the warmer months arrive, it's always a good idea to check the amount of refrigerant in your system. Known as freon, this refrigerant runs through the A/C pump and keeps the air coming out of your vents cool and conditioned.
Sometimes a leak may cause your A/C to malfunction, and will need to be fixed before refilling. Other things that may reduce A/C performance include seals and hoses oxidizing and corroding.
Often times it's difficult to tell if a leak is present without the right equipment. If repairs are needed, it is generally safer to have a professional do them. We encourage anyone in need of A/C or heating services to call us for a free consultation.
