Brake Fluid Change in Fremont CA

One of the most critical aspects of vehicle maintenance is brake fluid change. What is brake fluid? It’s the fluid that transfers (augmented) power from the brake pedal to the calipers, which press brake pads against rotors and cause vehicle to slow down and to stop. At Fremont Auto Center we recommend brake fluid change every two years. The reason for such fairly frequent change is that brake fluid deteriorates over time and it also absorbs moisture from its surroundings. As the moisture content reaches critical level, brakes will not function effectively, and in severe cases brakes may fail. At our Fremont Auto Care facility we don’t just replace the fluid willy-nilly. We will perform a test that tells us if the water content of the brake fluid is high enough to warrant replacement. Sometimes, even though the water content might not be at excessive levels, we may still recommend brake fluid replacement due to the overall condition of the brake fluid. Brake fluid is subj ... read more

Acura B Service in Fremont CA

The other day client called and asked about Acura B service. It’s actually quite involved as compared to the Acura A service which is an oil change with additional inspections or parts replacements (that’s where the digits come in, as in A1, or A3 – they indicate additional work to be performed). Acura B service is considerably more involved than the A service. It includes a number of inspections, which of course can turn into repairs if the inspected item is failing or broken. So below we list what is involved in B service, but please remember that this list is for the basic B service – when your Acura onboard computer displays B1 service, or B6 service, additional inspections / maintenance will be required. But without further delay, here is Acura B service in a nutshell:       Oil change     Oil filter replacement     Driveshaft boot inspection     Fuel system inspection     ... read more

Likely Causes of Mini Cooper Oil Leaks

Your Mini Cooper is manufactured by BMW, but even the best designed vehicles can develop “issues”. Mini Cooper is known for developing oil leaks – fortunately at Fremont Auto Center we can find the source of any oil leak and get it fixed, so you can enjoy your Mini for years to come. How do I know that my Mini is leaking engine oil? We all know about oil spots on the driveway or the garage floor. But a pungent smell coming from the engine area (when the engine is hot) may also indicate that there is an oil leak. One good habit, though it requires a bit more effort, is to regularly check engine oil levels – if you notice the oil level dropping significantly between regular oil changes, or you have to repeatedly add engine oil between service visits, it’s likely a sign of an engine oil leak. Noticing any of these symptoms should motivate you to have your Mini Cooper checked out by a professional. Common Areas of Mini Cooper Oil Leaks Among the areas of M ... read more
