You may not be familiar with all of the services available at Douglas Automotive Repair, so here’s a quick description of some typical things we do. Feel free to give us a call about questions on any of these, or for estimates.
Fuel System Cleaning: Over time, the fuel system gest gum and varnish built up. A fuel system cleaning gets rid of that and cleans out the fuel injectors.
Headlamp Replacement: Halogen and standard headlamps gradually face. When one burns out, replace both so they’ll have the same brightness. Also if your headlamp lenses are yellowed or cloudy, you can have them professionally restored to like-new condition. As us for more information.
Vehicle Inspections: Drivers get vehicle inspections for many reasons. Maybe they’re going on a trip or just want to make sure their vehicle’s ready for summer or winter. Maybe they just bought a used car and want to give it the once over. An inspection may reveal some things that are broken or are getting close to having a problem.
Oil Change Service: Every oil change at Douglas Automotive Repair includes a new filter, oil (per vehicle or customer specification), and a basic safety inspection.
PCV Valve Service: PCV stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation valve. It’s a little part that releases pressure from the engine. It can get gummed up and that can lead to engine damage. Just needs to be changed now and then (usually with a tune up).
Power Steering Service: This is often overlooked. We will evacuate the old fluid, clean out the system and replace it with clean fluid. Keeps the system running well for a long time. (Check your owner’s manual for fluid change intervals.)
Serpentine Belt Replacement: That’s the belt that powers the engine’s accessories, like the alternator, air conditioner, power steering and brakes. You’ll want to replace the serpentine belt before it breaks or wears down too much, because that will lead to other problems.
Shocks and Struts Replacement: This starts with an inspection of the suspension components. Shocks last a long time and wear out slowly, so many drivers don’t notice when it’s time to change them. If they’re worn or leaking, they need to be replaced.
Transmission Service: This involves removing the transmission fluid and replacing it with clean fluid. It’s like an oil change for your transmission.
Tire Rotation and Wheel Balancing: The tires are rotated from front to back using the recommended rotation pattern. This helps tires wear more evenly. Wheels need to be balanced from time to time to keep them turning without any wobble or bounce. Helps the ride and saves tire wear.
