Auto Repair Services in Roseville and 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, and 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 require maintenance, no matter their condition.
At Walt’s Auto Service, we understand this need and offer every type of regular maintenance service by talented, expert technicians. By working with us, you can keep your engine, brakes, transmission, fuel systems, and other auto parts working in top condition and save more money in the long run.
30k, 60k, 90k Mile Preventative Maintenance:
As you approach these three milestones, you'll need regular maintenance to prevent automotive issues. They are designed to address maintenance and inspection applicable to the mile intervals, and can include filter changes, fluid changes, and a comprehensive visual maintenance inspection. By performing this maintenance, you can:
- Reduce risk of breaking down
- Extend the life of your vehicle components
- Maximize fuel economy
- Protect your vehicle's warranty
- Maximize the resale value of the car
Front End Alignment: Every day driving causes your car’s suspension to get out of alignment. Parts become worn, springs are stretched, and your wheels can sit at improper angles. A front-end realignment corrects all this by straightening wheels and decreasing wear and tear on your tires. By getting a front-end alignment, you can ensure that your vehicle drives straighter, handles correctly, 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, reduced fuel economy, rough idling, and an incorrect air/fuel mix. They can also lead to higher, harmful 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.
Lube, Oil, and Oil Filter (LOF) Services: Following the manufacturer’s recommendations for maintenance can maximize the life of your vehicle. Often lube, oil, and filter services are recommended every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. During all our 38-point, LOF inspections, we replace all oil filters using premium parts and check lights, fluid levels, tires, belts, hoses, and more. We will also lubricate all chassis depending on the unique needs of your engine.
Suspension Inspection/Struts and Shocks: Shocks and struts work as part of your suspension system to prevent premature wear and tear. They also keep the weight even in your tires to maintain contact with the road – even at high speeds. When driving, your shocks and struts expand and compress, absorbing all the bumps and jolts. By replacing these, you can improve your vehicle's handling and comfort and ensure the safest ride for both you and your loved ones.
Transmission Fluid Exchange: Transmission fluid is a liquid that lubricates all of the moving parts inside your transmission. In a vehicle’s automatic transmission, this fluid also serves as a coolant and a viscous substance that transmits power from the engine to the transmission. At times, it needs to be changed and flushed with a flushing machine. We have the technology, materials, and experience to get your transmission properly lubricated and running smoothly, even 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.
