Your engine is the heart of your vehicle. And as your engine runs, hundreds of moving parts are working together to make your vehicle move.
Changing your oil according to your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation is perhaps the single most important maintenance that you can perform to keep your vehicle running. As the parts in your engine work together, they create tremendous heat through friction. Without oil, the heat would actually melt these parts together. By having oil in your vehicle, it keeps the moving parts of your engine lubricated and reduces the heat. Motor oil also contains special additives to help the engine work more efficiently.
Your car’s engine is made up of hundreds of complex components working together to ensure that your vehicle starts and runs properly. Over time, however, these components can wear out, resulting in a loss of performance and fuel economy. Here you’ll learn what a “tune-up” is, and tips to help you know when it’s time for a tune up. The technicians at Sumarus Auto Repair are trained to work on today’s high tech engines. We’re here to help maintain your vehicle and extend its life.
Repairing or replacing your transmission can be one of the most expensive repairs you may have to make on your vehicle. Maintaining your transmission according to your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations, not only prolongs its life but it can prevent a costly repair or breakdown in the future.
During the summer months, the temperature inside of a vehicle sitting in the sun can easily reach 130° or more. Keeping you and your passengers comfortable during the hottest weather is the job of your automobile’s air conditioning system.
Cooling system failure is the number one cause of vehicle breakdowns. Because there are often no visible warning sign of deterioration, radiator and cooling system maintenance service is frequently overlooked by vehicle owners.
Proper, periodic inspections of your vehicle’s major operating systems are the best way to reduce the chances of unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs.
