Routine maintenance is critical to keeping a vehicle running and driving safely and reliably. Most automakers require vehicle services to take place every 30,000 miles to ensure no problems are present, and to also keep your new car warranty valid. As a dealer alternative in Palo Alto we can complete these services for you. What actually takes place during these automotive checkups vary model to model, but can include engine diagnostics, fluid top offs, safety inspections, under hood inspections, minor parts replacement and more.
Oil Change Services
Most cars and trucks need an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Putting off this service could cause harm to your vehicle's engine. Our full service oil change includes high quality oil and a new oil filter, as well as a complimentary vehicle inspection. Whether your car requires synthetic oil or conventional oil, our fast oil change services will keep you moving.
Tire Rotation & Wheel Alignment Services
It's imperative to take care of your car's tires to maximize their life and maintain a safe driving experience. We offer a number of tire services, including tire rotation and tire balancing. We also complete wheel alignments. If you notice a shaking steering wheel or your car pulls to one side or the other, it may be time for a wheel alignment in Palo Alto.
Fluid Flush Services
Your car relies on several specialized fluids to operate properly. At certain mileage points it is necessary to drain and refill these liquids to ensure they are free of contamination. For your vehicle we can perform a power steering fluid flush, coolant flush, transmission fluid flush, differential flush or a brake fluid flush when the service is necessary.
Engine Tune Up
When your car or truck just doesn't seem to be running right, it may be time for a tune up. Engine tune ups generally include minor services that can help restore power and fuel economy. This includes replacing spark plugs, installing a new air filter or fuel filter, fuel injection service, ignition coil replacement, and other minor maintenance. To find out if a tune up could benefit your car, feel free to contact our local auto shop.

"This place is awesome and the only place I go for car-related repair or service. Chris and Gary are very honest and helpful, explaining problems with the car in a way I can understand. Their prices are very reasonable and their mom has even dropped me off at work after I dropped my car off for a repair. These guys are the best auto mechanics I've ever been to!"
