Getting Your Car Ready for Spring

Now that the weather is getting warm, you will want to make sure your car is in optimal condition after the cold winter. With the help of the professional and experienced car mechanics at our auto repair in Crystal Lake, IL, you can rest easy knowing you are getting the best care for a car maintenance check! To learn about our top quality maintenance check process, please read on.

Battery Check

Our licensed mechanic will thoroughly examine the battery in your car and make sure that it is clear of dirt or debris. We will also examine the charge levels in your battery to ensure everything looks the way it should.

Air Conditioning

Since the summer weather will be here soon, we will also want to check your car’s indoor air system.

Belts and Hoses

The hoses and belts in your car will expand and contract from the different weather temperatures. It’s always a good idea to get these checked out when the seasons change to ensure they are still in working condition.

Basic Maintenance

This is also a great time to have our experienced mechanic do a basic maintenance:

  • Tire Rotations
  • Fluid Changes
  • Joint Lubrications
  • Filter Changes
  • Tune-Ups
  • Windshield Wiper Replacement

Should You Change Your Own Oil?

A lot of car owners often wonder if it is a good idea to change their own oil. However, unless you are a licensed and experienced car mechanic, it is better to have one of our licensed mechanics at our auto repair in Crystal Lake, IL, and nearby areas, take care of it for you! Read on to learn more.

Costly

If you’re inexperienced with changing your oil and filter, you could end up losing more money if you make a mistake. A huge mistake that could happen is that the filter doesn’t seal properly. This would result in the oil leaking out and ruining your engine.

Don’t Have the Right Tools

It can be difficult to change your oil because you need a high quality lift to get your car off the ground. You can use a floor jack but this won’t get your car off the ground high enough. As a result, you’ll have very little room to move and you won’t be able to see as much as you should.

Timely

If you have minimal experience with changing your oil, it could take you an hour or more trying to figure out everything. By trusting one of our trusted mechanics, your oil change can be done in 20 minutes or less.
