We start out by looking at your engine to see if there is any loss of efficiency. If we can find something wrong with any part of it, we replace it immediately. Some of the most common changes are spark plugs, fuel filters, and various fluids. Each piece receives a visual and a working inspection to ensure that nothing will be missed.
Even if the parts seem to be in good working order, we will check and see if they have gone past their stated lifetime. This helps ensure that you aren’t driving around with old parts in your car that can cause problems. This keeps your engine, fuel injectors, and all of your filters in the best working order possible.
We will also be sure to check under the hood so that all of your belts, hoses, and fluids are in the best state possible as well. This lets us cut off problems before they happen and keep your car in good health.
