Don’t let this happen to you! 

What We Do

When any vehicle comes into our shop, we do a complete vehicle inspection. We provide this service to inform you (the vehicles owner) about the overall condition of your vehicle. The more information you have the better decision you’ll make on taking care of your vehicle. We want your vehicle to provide you with many years of trouble free driving. We treat every vehicle like it belonged to our mother or father. So when we make a recommendation you can be assured that we have your best interest in mind.

We want to educate every client that we come in contact with the importance of doing the Preventative Maintenance. There isn’t an organization affiliated with the automotive industry that hasn’t written or published an article about “HOW MUCH A CONSUMER SAVES BY DOING PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE. The cost savings are tremendous. Today’s vehicles are harder to work on than ever before. However they are designed to have preventative maintenance performed. 

TRANSMISSION FLUID EXCHANGE

When transmissions fail, the likely cause is breakdown of automatic transmission fluid. We use BG products 2 part cleaner/ conditioner and high quality automatic transmission fluid that will stand the test of time. You don’t have to worry about a transmission failure due to dirty or burnt transmission fluid. We add the cleaner to the transmission fluid and drive the vehicle to let the cleaner run through all of the parts of your transmission. Transmission fluid is actually not considered oil. Transmission fluid is actually considered a detergent. If you were to just change the fluid in a vehicle with dark and burnt fluid, within a few hundred miles the new fluid would look the same as the fluid that dirty and burnt. The reason for this is the new fluid would go through the transmission and clean it all up. The deposits that the new fluid would clean from the inside of your vehicles transmission would be suspended in the new fluid. We then exchange 16 quarts of new clean fluid with the fluid that is currently in your transmission. This is done by hooking up a machine into the line that carries fluid from your transmission to the transmission oil cooler. After we hook the machine up, we start the vehicle and the transmission own pump runs the dirty fluid into the machine. There a piston moves as the dirty fluid enters the machine on the other side of the piston there is clean fluid. So the piston pushes the exact same amount of clean transmission fluid into your transmission. After that is done we add a pint of BG products transmission conditioner to the transmission fluid. This conditioner does several things. BG ATC PLUS prevents deposit formation, which prolongs fluid life and the life of your transmission. It will help correct transmission shudder and shifting problems. It prevents transmission leaks by keeping seals soft and pliable.

COOLING SYSTEM CLEANING AND FLUID EXCHANGE
What We Do

A car's radiator has the important task of keeping the engine cool. Radiator repair and maintenance is essential to the health of your engine and your vehicle. The most common radiator repairs involve simple part replacement and radiator fluid exchange. Additionally, most vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing coolant antifreeze at regular intervals.

We offer more than just a “drain-and-fill.” Our expert technicians will assess the state of your radiator and service your cooling system fully. Radiator fluid exchange service includes:
  • Comprehensive system inspection
  • Machine-powered radiator flush
  • Addition of flush chemicals, sealant and lubricant
  • Pressure check and tests for leaks

RADIATOR REPAIR

  • Antifreeze coolant
  • Cooling sensor
  • Fan belts
  • Heater core
  • Heater hoses
  • Radiator
  • Radiator cap
  • Radiator hoses
  • Radiator fan/fan clutch
  • Serpentine belt
  • Belt Pulley Tensioners
  • Temperature sensor
  • Thermostat
  • Water pump

How Car Cooling Systems Work

Car Cooling Systems
Because engine overheating is the leading cause of roadside breakdowns, Auto Station attaches special emphasis to our comprehensive set of cooling system products and tools that ensure reliable performance of vehicle’s cooling system components.

Although gasoline engines have improved a lot, they are still not very efficient at turning chemical energy into mechanical power. Most of the energy in the gasoline (perhaps 7¬0%) is converted into heat, and it is the job of the cooling system to take care of that heat. In fact, the cooling system on a car driving down the freeway dissipates enough heat to heat two average-sized houses! The primary job of the cooling system is to keep the engine from overheating by transferring this heat to the air, but the cooling system also has several other important jobs.

The engine in your car runs best at a fairly high temperature. When the engine is cold, components wear out faster, and the engine is less efficient and emits more pollution. So another important job of the cooling system is to allow the engine to heat up as quickly as possible, and then to keep the engine at a constant temperature.

FUEL SYSTEM-FUEL INJECTOR-INTAKE AIR SYSTEM CLEANING 

Here are some tips to help you understand why you would need a fuel system service (and why you might not).

What is a fuel injector?

First, you should understand a bit about how your car's engine operates.

Fuel systems have changed drastically over the years. Old cars used to have a carburetor that fed fuel to the engine. However, carburetors were far from efficient and auto manufacturers eventually developed a fuel injection system that electrically controls fuel injection.

These complex systems provide accurate fuel monitoring so that when you step on the gas, the fuel injector delivers just the right amount of fuel to your engine. However, due to their complexity, these systems need periodic maintenance to ensure they run efficiently.

Why do you need fuel injector cleaning?

Cleaning your fuel injector system helps remove fuel build-up and deposits, clears the intake valves and cylinder heads, and flushes out the entire fuel system.

Cleaning the fuel system periodically can ensure your car performs efficiently, extend the life of your car's engine, improve engine performance, and increase fuel economy. Without proper cleaning, your fuel injector can also become clogged, which causes poor acceleration, lower power and can eventually lead serious problems with your engine.

Fuel system cleaning can also reduce your vehicle's carbon footprint by improving the fuel economy.
