Oil & Filter Changes
Oil changes are essential to keep your vehicle working optimally on the road. By ensuring you get regular oil changes, your engine is not forced to work overtime.
Check Engine Light
Whenever this happens it means that there is something that might not be right with your car. It’s important to bring your vehicle in so our technicians can check your vehicle’s systems to ensure it is in top condition.
Fluid Services (Transmission, Transaxle, Differential, Brakes)
Like humans, we need to make sure we have enough fluids in our systems to get through the day. Whether your vehicle’s fluids require a complete flush or an ATF change, having it inspected for clarification is a must.
Brake Service (Pads, Rotors, Sensors, Parking Brake)
Our team of technicians utilize cutting edge diagnostic equipment to analyze and verify that your vehicle’s brake system is cared for at the highest service level. We will inspect all major components of your brake system, including pads, rotors, sensors, and parking brakes.
The most common cause of malfunctioning AC are leaks or compressor issues. If your vehicle’s air is blowing cool but not cold air, have it inspected for a clogged filter, a cooling fan problem, radiator trouble, or a simple recharge of the AC.

Electrical Diagnostics & Electrical Wiring
For any luxury German vehicle, it’s important to keep a close eye on each electrical component to make sure they are all working as intended. From the battery and lights to the alternator, any faults will illuminate with a warning light. If you see it, have your vehicle checked and repaired immediately to prevent damage.
Mercedes-Benz A & B Service
Mercedes-Benz auto repair is uber important. A Service is performed after the odometer reaches 10,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first. B Service is performed after the next 10,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first.
Safety Equipment Checks
This can’t be stressed enough. Safety is a major priority since it deals with the safety of the driver and every passenger. If there is any minor or major safety malfunction, take it in for a repair as soon as possible.
Tire Pressure Monitoring
The last thing you want to happen is to let the tire pressure get too low that you get a flat. Although tire pressure fluctuates due to temperature changes, always make sure your tire pressure is correct.
Struts, Shocks, and Suspension (Control Arms, Thrust Arms, Sway Bars)
While shocks and struts serve similar purposes to prevent vehicle bounce, struts provide structural support to the suspension while shock absorbers don’t. That’s why it’s imperative to keep an eye on the live expectancy of your vehicle’s parts as they continue their normal wearing and tearing process. Since they will need to be replaced, keep an eye out for the warning signs: vibrations, nose dives, uneven tire wear, leaking fluid, and trouble braking.
Replacing or repairing your rod bearings includes fully draining and replacing the engine oil, filter, power steering fluid, and coolant. Since engine mounts are removed to drop the oil pan, when it looks worn or begins to leak, it’s time to have it replaced.
VANOS Upgrades, Service, and Repair
Your VANOS is an abbreviation for a German-named engine component designed to increase the efficiency of your BMW’s intake performance. However, it’s time for a BMW repair once your vehicle’s reached every 50,000 miles.
Timing Chains & Belts
Normally, a vehicle’s timing belt is replaced once it reaches 100,000 miles on the odometer. Your vehicle would either have a timing chain or a belt, and timing chains can be noisier when it’s time to replace it. To prevent a serious problem from occurring, be sure to review your car’s manual or take it in for a diagnostic, so a trusted technician can inspect it beforehand.

Valve Cover & Valve Cover Gaskets
Your vehicle’s valve cover gasket protects cylinder head hardware from the elements and prevents oil from spilling into the engine. Since it’s made of plastic, it will undergo normal wear and tear and has an estimated life expectancy between 8 to 12 years.
Batteries & Programming / Registration
By registering your vehicle’s battery, it’s programmed to readjust to charge at an optimal level. Basically, it prevents the battery from overcharging and resets the entire battery management system.
Spark Plugs & Coil Packs
The spark plug and coil pack are parts of your vehicle’s ignition system. With each having a distinct function—the coil transforms low voltage from the battery into high voltage, causing a spark in the plug—if there is a rough idle, a loud engine, a drop in RPMs, or a flashing check engine light, it could be a sign that the ignition system isn’t operating properly.
Axles & CV Joints
Your car’s axles are vital for keeping you safe while behind the wheel. While they are at the same level of importance as your brakes and tires, prioritize your axles as an essential part of your car’s performance and drivability. If you are having trouble stopping or turning, take it in right away for a repair.
Radiators & Hoses
Your vehicle’s cooling system prevents your car from overheating and having a meltdown, and is made up of a thermostat and housing, thermo-time switch, water pump, electric cooling fan, and radiator. Everyone uses their cooling system, but as friction generates heat while driving, not conducting routine inspections of your car’s cooling system can cause it to break down and fail.
Your anti-lock brake system helps you stop your vehicle during emergency situations by restoring traction to your tires. Basically, it prevents your wheels from locking up. It’s important to have this routinely checked just in case an emergency may occur.
It’s recommended to bring your vehicle in for a fuel system check every 30,000 miles to keep it at a healthy level. Our technicians will flush out your system, instill a chemical cleaning, and replace your filter.
This service is on the abrasive side since it entails cleaning the intake manifold and engine valves with a hire pressure blast of finely crushed walnut shells. This treatment helps clean and clear out carbon buildup on older gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines.
This treatment cleans and clears out intake valve carbon buildup on gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines. This service utilizes a high pressure blast of finely crushed walnut shells to safely remove the carbon deposits.
Mass Air Flow Sensors
Mass air flow sensors measure the amount of air that is flowing into the engine intake. This helps calculate the amount of fuel to add to the engine to achieve proper air-fuel ratio (AFR). Keep an eye out for black exhaust, check engine light, hard starts, rough idle, and trouble accelerating.
To properly care for your car’s cooling system, our technicians drain and refill its cooling system with fresh antifreeze. That way, our team can inspect your radiator and engine’s cooling system to ensure everything is functioning properly.
Cooling System, Water Pump, & Thermostat
Your water pump moves coolant through its system and the thermostat regulates the flow to maintain operating temperatures. If the water pump fails, the coolant won’t flow through the system, so the temperature will rise, and heat will concentrate on the engine. If that happens, it’s at risk of overheating and failing.
Your water pump moves coolant through the cooling system and the thermostat regulates the flow to maintain operating temperatures. If the water pump fails, the coolant doesn’t flow through the system, resulting in an overheating engine.
Exhaust gas recirculation valves are an integral component of your vehicle’s engine management system as they recirculate finely metered quantities of exhaust gas to the engine’s intake system for a boost in efficiency and lower N0x emissions. If you notice a smell of fuel coming from the hood or experience rough idling, then it may be time to replace the valve.
The Evaporative Emission Control System (EVAP) prevents gas vapors from escaping into the air from the fuel tank and fuel system. If you see a check engine light, it may indicate there’s a leak. However, the problem manifests differently in every vehicle. With that said, it never hurts to bring your vehicle in for a check.
Porsche IMS Bearings
If you have a Porsche 911 or a Porsche Boxster from 1997 to 2005, it is at a high risk of failure of the intermediate shaft (IMS) bearing—which is a catastrophic engine failure. If you find metal shavings in your oil or oil filter, this is an early warning sign, and you would need to schedule a Porsche repair immediately.
Power Steering System
Our technicians remove old, contaminated steering fluid from your system. If you ever notice that it’s burnt or discolored in comparison to a fresh smell and clear in color, it’s time to have it replaced.
Your transmission is an essential part that makes your vehicle operate at its best. If or when your transmission begins to fail, get it repaired as quickly as possible. Our technicians specialize in repairing all types of transmissions, including automatic, semi-automatic, and manual models.
