Having good brakes is important. If your car is squealing when you brake or shaking (pulsing) as you brake you may be experiencing braking issues. Our brake jobs include greasing the caliper pins, replacing the brake hardware, lubricating the movement parts to ensure proper functionality for the life of your brakes. A vibrating or pulsing brake system may be a sign that your brake rotor has been damaged and will need to be replaced to ensure proper vehicle stopping. Please communicate with our service team to ensure we get all the symptoms you are having with your brakes so we can better serve you.

Tune Ups

When do you need a tune up? In older cars, a tune-up was needed every 30,000-45,000 miles. Most newer cars can drive without a tune-up much longer. A major tune-up is usually recommended if a car starts running poorly, or when your spark plugs are due for replacement according to the manufacturer maintenance schedule. Our tune up includes: replacement of spark plugs (spark plug wires if needed), clean the throttle body, replace the air and fuel filters, and top off all fluids. Tune ups are a good way to keep your car running at is optimal performance and make sure you are getting the best MPG fuel economy that you can out of your vehicle. If your car is experiencing a misfire (indicated by a flashing check engine light) a tune up may be able to fix this issue.

Timing Belts

How often and how important is it to replace my timing belt? The timing belt is an integral part of your engine and, if it fails, so does your engine, causing your car to shut down.The rubber timing belt is part of most internal combustion engines and is responsible for synchronizing the engine’s functions. It controls the rotation of the camshaft and crankshaft and the opening and closing of the engine’s many valves to allow air and gas in and out, which causes the fuel to ignite in the combustion chamber.

During this explosion, the valves push the pistons down. When the timing belt breaks, the valves, which are very light, will open at the wrong time and hit the larger pistons and cause the valves to break or bend. If this happens the engine will not run and the vehicle will need a new engine head. Unfortunately, in most cases, there are no obvious signs the timing belt is bad; it will just break. That’s why we recommend replacing it every 60,000 to 100,000 miles and/or 6-8 years. Always check your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommendations. We recommend replacing your water pump, timing belt idler pulley, and tensioner pulley. These parts are vital to the longevity of the timing system in your vehicle.


How do I tell if my suspension is having issues? There are many things to look for to determine if your vehicle’s suspension system needs to be inspected. The first and most obvious sign is leaking shocks. If your shocks are leaking, your shocks or struts (depending on what you have on your vehicle) must be replaced. Another easy way to find out if your suspension system should be inspected is to determine if it is bouncing or swaying excessively. To do this, you can drive down a familiar road and see if your vehicle bounces more than usual. You can also perform the bounce test. The bounce test requires you to bounce each corner of your vehicle a few times, and after you let go, the vehicle should bounce only once and then settle. If your vehicle settles after one bounce, then your shocks and shock absorbers are good.

If your vehicle continues to bounce, your shocks and shock absorbers may be worn and should be inspected. Bottoming out and nose-dives are also good signs of worn shocks and shock absorbers. There are also several other signs that will let you know your suspension system should be inspected. These signs deal with your sway bar. The easiest sign is if your vehicle sways too much when you are making turns or it becomes difficult to control your car after or during turning or when you are passing an 18-wheeler your vehicle will sway from the 18-wheeler’s crosswinds. Any of these signs can mean that your sway bar is loose or damaged and must be inspected. Your sway bar bolts that connect the sway bar to the vehicle should also be occasionally checked to determine their condition. If your wheels start to squeal as you go down the road or make excessive noise your ball joints could be loose or broken.The noises a bad  ball joint will make are sometimes described as thumping, knocking as you go over a bump and squeaking. If this occurs and is not corrected quickly it could cause your tire to fall off as you are driving.

Head Gaskets

The head gasket in your engine has one of the toughest jobs in the engine dealing with both very low and very high pressures and a wide range of temperatures, so it’s not surprising that they do end up failing from time to time.  When someone says a car has a blown head gasket, they mean the head gasket has developed a leak. It can often be difficult to tell if you have a blown or leaky head gasket. We have seen many cars drive for many miles before they start showing symptoms.

As you drive with a blown or leaking head gasket, the cooling water and exhaust gases are entering places they were never designed to be and can cause severe temperature fluctuation across the mating surface of the block and the head.  These fluctuations over time can cause the metal to wear or even warp significantly. If not fixed quickly the areas on the engine will warp and cause a poor seal even with an installation of a new head gasket. In order to fix a leaking head gasket the heads and block will most likely need to be machined flat again.
