AC Repair and Regular Maintenance in Citrus Heights, CA

Many drivers think that their vehicle only needs service when something is wrong. This kind of thinking excludes regular check-ups for engines, brakes, transmissions, and more. It can lead to severe and costly issues. When it comes right down to it, a car, truck, or RV is still a machine, and machines need maintenance no matter their condition.

At Walt’s Auto Service, we understand this need, and our talented, expert technicians offer every type of regular maintenance service available. Working with us, you can keep your engine, brakes, transmission, fuel systems, and other auto parts working in top condition. We can also help with AC repair. Maintenance even saves money in the long run! Need proof? Read some of our customer testimonials.

The following are the services included in our regular maintenance program:

30/60/90k Mile Preventative Maintenance: When you have driven your car for 30, 60, and 90 thousand miles, you need regular maintenance to prevent automotive issues. Our preventative maintenance service is designed to address problems that develop around that level of mileage. Maintenance includes filter changes, fluid changes, and a comprehensive visual inspection. By performing this maintenance, you can reduce the risk of your car breaking down, extend the life of your vehicle components, maximize your fuel economy, protect your vehicle's warranty, and maximize the resale value of your car.

Front End Alignment: Daily driving causes your car’s suspension to fall out of alignment. Parts wear, springs stretch, and your wheels start to sit at improper angles. A front-end realignment corrects all these issues, straightens your wheels, and decreases wear and tear on your tires. By getting a front-end alignment, you can ensure that your vehicle drives straighter, handles properly, gives you better gas mileage, and provides you with a safer, more comfortable drive.

Fuel System Cleaning: Dirty fuel injectors can result in poor acceleration, low power, poor fuel economy, rough idling, and an incorrect air/fuel mix. They can also lead to higher carbon monoxide emissions. At Walt’s Auto Service, we recommend you schedule a fuel injector cleaning every 25,000 miles to improve your vehicle’s acceleration. By scheduling this regularly, you’ll save money on gas, cut down on harmful emissions, and even extend the life of your engine.

AC Repair: It is important to have your car's AC fully functioning. In the summer months, it is unthinkable to drive a car without an operating air conditioner, but it is also important during the cooler months of the year. We can perform routine maintenance of your car's air conditioning unit to ensure that it runs when you need it most.

With our regular maintenance program, Walt's Auto Service will keep your car on the road for as long as possible. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Lube, Oil, and Oil Filter (LOF) Services: Following the manufacturer’s recommendations for maintenance can maximize the life of your vehicle. Lube, oil, and filter services are often recommended every 3,000–5,000-miles. During all our 38-point, LOF services, we replace the oil filter using premium parts, check the lights, fluid levels, tires, belts, hoses, and more. We will also lubricate the chassis depending on the unique needs of your vehicle.

Suspension Inspection for Struts and Shocks: Shocks and struts work as part of your suspension system to prevent premature wear and tear. They also keep the weight evenly distributed between your tires, maintaining contact with the road at high speeds. When driving, your shocks and struts expand and compress to absorb the bumps and jolts of the road. By replacing these, you can improve your vehicle's handling, comfort, and safety.

Transmission Fluid Exchange: Transmission fluid is a liquid that lubricates all of the moving parts inside your transmission. Since the transmission converts the power of your engine into appropriate torque for the wheels, it's hard to overstate the importance of a smoothly functioning transmission. A neglected transmission can be as expensive as an engine to replace. Periodically, the fluid needs to be changed and flushed with a flushing machine. At Walt’s Auto Service, we have the right tools, materials, and experience to keep your transmission well-lubricated and running smoothly, even in-between service intervals.

Tune-Up Maintenance: For peak efficiency and performance, we recommend periodic maintenance from our trained automotive experts! Our tune-up services can improve fuel economy, emissions, and long-lasting performance in any vehicle. We’ll replace spark plugs, oxygen sensors, air/fuel filters, PCV valves, distributor caps/rotors (if equipped), and anything else that will improve the life of your engine.
