Who should you choose for your vehicle fluid changes and why?

While I am here do you take the time to do a free car inspection on my car? Will you look up to see if your are due for any factory that you may have missed? Do they include a free check engine light scan or check engine light reading? They should if they do not, it is in your best interest.

First off, your A service is the very best, and most convenient time to do a visual inspect your car. Our automotive technicians inspect for oil leaks, transmission leaks, they check for worn out suspension pieces, visually inspect your serpentine belt, inspect your, brakes, tires and the list goes on. Our techs even check to see if your tail and brake, turns signals, license plate, and head lights work. Vehicle inspections are worth the hour wait in office, or better yet, you can run some errands and come back later that day. Machines break down, it happens. It does not matter what kind you drive, eventually it happens to everyone at some point.

Critical automobile may be neglected if young technician misses a coolant leak or expired timing belt sticker. I personally, would rather have a trained technician working on my car, who understands my EV or hybrid car, and how it works. Do they use a torque wrench along with a proper torque spec on your oil pan drain bolt?

Imagine a lube tech that is just learning the ropes, tightens your drain plug bolt a little too tight. Heck, maybe that day he forgot to tighten that drain plug altogether. Left it loose huh, ops… This could cost you a head gasket or even a new motor. You ever dealt with cooperate oil companies? Sound like a long headache and a fight with a service manager for months. Why gamble? They may be faster than us, maybe even in half the time. Ever wonder why lube station are faster than a auto repair shop?

Over the last decade or so I have noticed a pattern on cars and how they break. After awhile we decided a vehicle inspection list would be a good idea. Over time this list has been fine tuned.
