Oil Change in Vista

The most important service your vehicle will require is the oil change. Oil changes are necessary for most cars between every 3,000 and 5,000 miles in order to ensure that the motor is properly lubricated. This service helps regulate the engine temperature while ensuring that there is not unnecessary and potentially detrimental metal on metal contact amongst the moving parts of the engine.

Wheel Alignments

It's important that wheels and tires are aligned. If they aren't, you could be damaging your tires and affecting the vehicle's handling characteristics. If the suspension is out of alignment, there is uneven pressure on the tires that can cause your car to work harder on the tires than it needs to.

Benefits of Wheel Alignments:

  • Increase Fuel Efficiency
  • Reduce Expensive Auto Repairs
  • Experience Smoother Driving
  • Improve vehicle safety
  • Increase the life of your tires

Fluid Flush Services

Vehicles utilize many different fluids aside from engine oil that help the vehicle's numerous systems operate. On occasion these fluids need to be drained and refilled. We can do these services for your vehicle, which include the brake fluid flush, cooling system flush, power steering flush and transmission fluid flush.

Be sure to keep tabs on your vehicle's maintenance schedule to ensure you stay on the road, not on the side of it awaiting a tow truck.
