Auto Maintenance in San Rafael, CA and Surrounding Communities
To maximize the performance and reliability of your car or truck, it is important to keep up with preventative maintenance services. Auto Repair Specialist is a dealer alternative for auto maintenance in San Rafael, meaning we can complete any factory services required by your car or truck, even those necessary to keep its new car warranty valid. The next time your car is due for service, skip the expensive dealership and come see for fast and fair priced car care.
Most cars and trucks have factory maintenance schedules that need to be followed to maximize roadlife and maintain existing warranties. For many cars and trucks, this means a trip to the auto shop for an inspection, minor parts replacements, safety analysis and computer diagnostics every 30,000 miles, hence the name 30/60/90K service. Our team is equipped with the skills and OEM parts and fluids to complete these services. Be sure to call to schedule service when the odometer indicates it is time to reduce the chances of future trouble.
Full Service Oil Change
Auto Repair Specialist offers a fast oil change in San Rafael for all cars and trucks. Whether you need a conventional oil change or a full synthetic oil change, we have quality oils and oil filters for your vehicle. Our full service lube service includes the proper amount of oil, a new oil filter and a vehicle inspection. Give us a call to schedule service or stop by at your convenience.
Timing Belt Replacement
The timing belt has the critical job of keeping the engine's parts in sync. As the miles add up, this rubber belt will begin to wear. It's critical to replace it before it snaps, as a failed timing belt could result in major engine damage. Most vehicles equipped with this part need timing belt repair between 75,000 and 105,000 miles. Give us a call to learn more about your car's needs or to schedule an appointment.
Automotive Fluid Flush Services
Many systems within your vehicle utilize specialized fluids to operate. From time to time, these fluids need to be drained and refilled to ensure they're free of harmful contaminants. This is known as a fluid flush. When required, we can complete a transmission fluid flush, power steering fluid flush, brake fluid flush or coolant flush.
Car Tune Up Service
While scheduled auto maintenance is designed to keep your vehicle running in tip-top shape, sometimes our cars need a little extra help to remain reliable and efficient. If you notice a decrease in performance, a drop in fuel efficiency or experience hard starting, it may be time for an engine tune up. In general, a car tune up will include minor auto maintenance that restores all aspects of performance. This can include replacing the air filter and fuel filter, installing new spark plugs or completing fuel injection cleaning.
Putting off preventative services can result in major problems for any car or truck. When your vehicle is due for scheduled auto maintenance in San Rafael, call Auto Repair Specialist at (415) 612-3933 to schedule an appointment. Our professional technicians can perform any automotive service necessary to keep your car running like new.
"It was my daughter's wedding weekend and on my way to the venue my brakes gave out on my vehicle. With so many other things on my mind I did not need to worry about my vehicle but Chuck's Auto took care of it, repaired my brakes, picked me up at the airport after I returned the rental and I was back on my way back home. Very happy with the quality of work, the speed and professional courtesy that they showed me."
