Proper vehicle maintenance is a crucial part of keeping your car running well. At Brown Automotive in Trussville, AL, we’re ready and able to tackle all of your required maintenance needs. We use BG products which are the best on the market.
Most cars have a timing belt or chain that needs to be inspected regularly. If it fails, then your entire engine can experience a catastrophic failure. Most cars need their timing belt replaced between 50,000 and 100,000 miles, but it’s easy to forget about this. Bringing your car to Brown Automotive for regular maintenance means we won’t forget.
Your car’s coolant needs to be flushed and refilled because it works hard to keep your car cool and breaks down in the process. If you don’t perform this crucial maintenance, you run the risk of part failure that ends up costing you a lot more. This also helps to protect your car’s radiator.
When you get a transmission flush done, the old transmission fluid is removed and it takes all the gunk it’s collected out with it. Then the transmission gets refilled with fresh transmission fluid that is ready to get the job done. You’re going to want to have this done every 3 to 5 years, or according to the recommendations in your car’s owner’s manual.
Power Steering Flushes
Like a transmission flush, power steering flushes remove old power steering fluid and replace it with a fresh round. If you put this service off for too long, your power steering pump could end up failing. That’s a much bigger repair that would have been unnecessary with just a little maintenance.
Fuel System Cleaning
Your fuel system keeps your car running, and it needs some maintenance, too. The fuel pump lives in the gas tank and it needs periodic cleaning to keep it from getting clogged. Fuel lines, the fuel filter, and fuel injectors all need to be cleaned, too. Particles and dirt from gas and from combustion can build up and clog all of these pieces, giving you terrible gas mileage.
Intake Valve Cleaning
Intake valves can get clogged, too. If you don’t get them cleaned regularly, they can interfere with airflow in your car’s engine, even interfering with combustion, which is something you want to avoid. It’s recommended to get your intake valves cleaned every 15,000 miles or so.
Your car has more filters than you probably realize. Most have a cabin filter, air filter, fuel filter, and oil filter. Some of these are changed during other services, like your oil filter should be changed with every oil change. But others need to be changed at other times, and we can help with that.
