Mechanical Repair Services
Most automobile manufacturers recommend a tune-up be performed at an interval of 30,000 miles or two years, whichever comes first. As with all preventative maintenance performed on an automobile, tune-ups can prevent a myriad of problems from occurring on a vehicle.
Engine Diagnostics, Check Engine Light
The transmission is the component that helps to move the car when you want to accelerate. If you press the gas and the car doesn’t seem to pull like normal you may have a transmission issue that should be checked further. Transmission fluid is usually a bright red color when it is new and over time it breaks down/ gets dirty and turns brown or black. It is a good idea to service the transmission fluid and filter every 50,000 miles. If you do have a transmission failure or malfunction we can replace or repair it when required. At Chippewa Auto Body we can repair automatic & manual transmissions, as well as clutches and 4 wheel drive components.
Among all the equipment in your vehicle, belts and hoses have the shortest lifespan. Due to constant exposure to heat, vibration, and harmful chemicals, these components invariably crack, leak, fray, and peel . If not promptly replaced and maintained, this could spell disaster for the performance of your vehicle. And evaluating the condition of your belts and hoses only on their appearance is not enough! Let us inspect, and if needed, replace you timing and drive belts at Chippewa Auto Body.
At Chippewa Auto Body was are also able to provide complete suspension services from frame repair to shocks, struts, and springs. The suspension system is vital to the safety and ride quality of the vehicle. Having worn out suspension parts can cause costly problems with the tires and brakes by wearing them out much quicker. Shocks and struts should be replaced if they show signs of problems or around 75,000-100,000 miles depending on your vehicle.
Heating & Air Conditioning
Keeping your family comfortable while traveling is important to all of us. Typically, air conditioning systems should keep the entire vehicle cool within a few minutes of driving. The air conditioner also removes moisture from the air when using the defrost feature. If your A/C is not blowing as cold as you would like or the defroster is not working well our qualified technicians are sure to find to the solution.
Cooling System Maintenance
The cooling system is very important and consists of the radiator, water pump, hoses, heater core, and multiple other engine parts. We recommend flushing the coolant at the specified interval from the manufacturer to help prevent failure of the parts within the cooling system. The cooling system helps regulate the engine temperature and ensures proper heating in cold weather. We inspect the condition of those parts and recommend replacing any worn or leaking parts when necessary.
Batteries & Starting Systems
The battery, starter, and alternator all work together to help start the vehicle and keep it running once it is started. Batteries last around 4 to 5 years depending driving habits and weather conditions. We inspect the battery, alternator and starter at each oil change to help prevent you from getting stranded. Stop in for a system checkup if your car is having trouble starting.
