is the scheduled inspection, service or replacement
of parts as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer,
based on the age and mileage of your vehicle. These
schedules vary according to vehicle and manufacturers.

Oil & Filter Change
Recommended at 3000 mile intervals - conventional
Recommended at 7500 mile intervals - synthetic oil
maintenance service that prolongs engine life and reduce
oil and oil filter with OEM quality parts and fluid
Lubricate chassis (where available)
and adjust tire air pressure
fluid levels (fill if needed)
air filter (replace if needed)
inspect tires, suspension, exhaust system, wipers,
belts, hoses, battery and engine compartment
Recommended at 30,000 - 35,000 mile intervals
vital service which can extend the life of the transmission
and reduce large repair bills.
Most transmission failures are caused by overheating
and fluid contamination. Similar to oil in your car’s
engine, automatic transmission fluid (ATF) suffers from
heat, friction and contamination degradation. Once this
starts, your transmission’s vital parts begin
to clog with sludge and varnish deposits. This process
restricts the flow of transmission fluid which can result
in serious malfunctions or complete transmission failure.
Our service center uses a flushing process that by
replacing the contaminated fluid with fresh fluid, safely
removes varnish and sludge deposits and cleans all internal
transmission components, torque converter and transmission
cooler. Also, wear metals that are grinding away on
transmission components are flushed away.
A quality transmission conditioner is added to revitalize
transmission seals and O-rings that can stop and /or
prevent leaks, as well as to help reduce rough and hard
Cooling System Service
Recommended at 2 year intervals
Over time, rust, scale and other harmful residues can
build up throughout your engine and its cooling system.
These residues eventually can cause clogging in the
radiator and other areas in the cooling system, which
in turn may cause engine overheating or extensive damage.
By periodically flushing your vehicle’s cooling
system harmful deposits can be removed, thus restoring
cooling system efficiency and extending radiator and
cooling system life.
A quality conditioner is added to the cooling system
that contains a rust preventative and lubricant to inhibit
residues from reforming.
Fuel System Service
Recommended at 1 year intervals
An important service that provides many lasting benefits.
Many cars today run at a level of efficiency considerably
reduced from when they were new. Carbon buildup gradually
robs your vehicle of performance and fuel economy and
may cause numerous problems such as engine malfunction,
high emissions, excessive fuel consumption, and loss
of performance, rough idling and hard starts.
Our service center utilizes a carbon cleaning system
designed to give a total engine cleaning and decarbonization.
This system cleans accumulated carbon deposits in the
air intake system, fuel injectors, intake valves, combustion
chambers, oxygen sensors and catalytic converters. A
professional air-intake and fuel system cleaning is
recommended to return your engine to peak running condition
and provide the following benefits:
air flow for smoother idling
of stalling and hesitation
against rust and corrosion
Conditioning System Service
*Be prepared when warm weather
Even in today’s highly advanced A/C systems,
refrigerant can leak out through component connections
and seals. With smaller capacity A/C systems, a small
leak can greatly affect the performance of the air conditioning
and on a hot day, may not cool at all.
Our service center uses state of the art A/C equipment
to diagnose, repair and recharge A/C systems. In consideration
for the environment, we recover and recycle A/C refrigerant
and follow strict EPA mandated rules and regulations.
Engine Maintenance (Tune-ups)
With today’s highly advanced engines, there are
fewer tune- up parts to replace and these parts last
longer than ever before. Replace spark plugs, ignition
components, ignition wires, fuel filters, air filters
and PCV valves as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
Brake Fluid and Power Steering Fluid Exchange
As with oil and transmission fluid, brake fluid and
power steering fluid, over time, become contaminated
and breakdown, thus not providing the protection and
service intended. In our repair center, we can flush
and refill these components, thereby extending their
use life and preventing costly repairs.
Suspension, and Alignment Services
Properly maintaining tires will prolong their life
and provide the needed level of safety. Tire
air pressure should be checked and adjusted regularly,
paying particular attention to seasonal weather changes.
Tire rotation should
be done on a regular and consistent basis. Tire manufacturers
recommend rotations every 7500 miles. A good rule of
thumb to remember tire rotations is every other oil
change. Tires on the drive axles tend to wear out more
quickly, rotating tires help to even out the wear for
the entire set of tires.
Keeping tires properly balanced increases tire wear
and provides safe handling of the vehicle. Computer
tire balancing provides an accurate and cost
effective method to keep tires rolling smoothly. Check
tire balance yearly.
Periodic inspection of a vehicle’s suspension
system will help to ensure safe handling and
steering capabilities. Shocks, struts and other steering
components should be checked anytime a vehicle is in
Vehicle wheel alignment
should be checked at least once a year. More frequently
if driving under severe road conditions, such as potholes,
road construction or dirt roads. Proper wheel alignment
will help increase the life of the tires and help avoid
unsafe driving conditions.
NC State Emission & Safety
*Required by state law at least
once a year
Our service center has at its disposal two state certified
inspection machines. Inspections are preformed on a
first- come, first-serve basis and can be completed
while you wait. If inspection repairs are needed we
are able to handle them in a timely manner.
