Your car relies on several specialized fluids to help it run safely and efficiently. At certain mileage points these fluids need to be drained and refilled to ensure they're free of damaging contaminants. This is known as a fluid flush. For your vehicle we can complete a brake fluid flush, differential flush, power steering flush, coolant flush or a transmission fluid flush. We are your source for any automotive fluid service needs.
Belts & Hoses
Under the hood of your car you will find a number of rubber belts and hoses. As the miles add up these parts begin to wear out. If they are not replaced before they fail completely your vehicle may suffer from catastrophic engine damage. We can replace your vehicle's serpentine belt, radiator hose, timing belt and other belts and hoses as necessary. Be sure to schedule an appointment to have these services completed as called for by your owner's manual.
Car Tune Up Services
When your vehicle just doesn't seem to be running right, it may be time for an engine tune up. Car tune ups generally consist of minor auto maintenance that helps restore power, fuel efficiency and reliability. This may include replacing spark plugs, conducting fuel injection services, changing the air filter or fuel filter or other fast and affordable car care. Give us a call to request an estimate for the cost of a tune up in Rockville.
