While consistently changing your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles is key to a healthy car, there are other fluids that need some attention every now and then as well, including coolant fluid, power steering fluid, brake fluid, and transmission fluid. Cars rely on coolant fluid to keep the engine from overheating, power steering fluid is necessary for your steering system to work properly, a transmission fluid flush helps avoid expensive transmission problems, and your braking system and motor can build up sludge over time. At Primary Care Auto, we check the level and quality of all your fluids to see how you are doing and whether it’s time for a flush.
If your check engine light is on, we have the equipment and skill to properly diagnose the issue and appropriately handle any necessary repairs. A thorough check engine light diagnostic is more than just connecting a scanner to your vehicle and pulling trouble codes. A trouble code does not always indicate exactly what is wrong with your car. For example, a trouble code may point to a sensor, but that does not always mean the sensor is bad. With a full check engine light diagnostic from Primary Care Auto, you’ll know what’s really wrong with your car.
Automotive shocks and struts are very important to the safety of your vehicle, as they help you maintain control behind the wheel. If you are experiencing bouncing, a hard ride, or swaying at highway speeds, your shocks or struts may be worn and in need of replacement. It’s important to realize your shocks and struts are not simply about giving you a smooth ride. They are integral to car control, and your vehicle becomes very dangerous if they fail.
When you bring your vehicle to Primary Care Auto Repair for any service, we offer a free courtesy maintenance inspection, checking your tires, fluid levels, belts, lights, wipers, battery hoses, and more. Our goal is to help you keep your car safe and reliable, and when you take care of your vehicle, it runs better and lasts longer. Our mechanics can also handle your factory recommended preventive maintenance services every 30K, 60K, and 90K miles without affecting your warranty.
No matter what type of vehicle you drive, your car will eventually require brake work. If you step on the brakes and you hear a screeching sound or if you’re noticing vibrations or grinding sounds or your brake pedal simply isn’t responding as well as it once did, your brakes definitely need service. Our mechanics can handle all levels of brake repair and antilock braking system (ABS) repair, including brake pads, rotors, shoes, drums, brake hardware, resurfacing, brake bleeding, and calipers.
Your suspension is what keeps your car stable while you are steering. If your ride is noticeably bumpier or rougher than it used to be or if your vehicle pulls to a particular side during turns or if the front or back of the car lurches forward when stopping, these are all signs your suspension system isn’t working properly and needs service. It is best to get any chassis, suspension, or steering issues dealt with quickly as a failure of any of the components can be a major safety risk.
