Having the radiator in your vehicle flushed is an important preventive maintenance service. It helps remove dirt, sludge, rust, and dirty coolant from your cooling system.

These parts are used on a vehicle with strut-type suspensions and can often last the lifetime of your vehicle. If your car keeps bouncing after going through a dip or bump in the road, it may be a sign you need new shocks or struts. The springs in your car absorb the bumps, and the shocks and struts serve as “dampers” to control the bouncing afterward. Excessive suspension movement or noises can be caused by damaged from road debris, leaks, or worn out bushings.

During regular inspections, we will make sure your belts are in good working order.
