Fall Auto Checkup in Fremont,

Fall Auto Checkup in Fremont, CA As the weather cools down and the Fall is upon us, it's time to get your vehicle ready for the rainy season. We will likely not have the amount of rain we had last year, but your car will still face inclement weather and it should be ready. Major areas of concern are starting, stopping, and overall safety. So we recommend that you bring your vehicle to our Fremont auto repair shop, and our nationally ASE certified mechanics will check suspension, brakes, tires, and battery to make sure you have reliable transportation when the winter storms arrive.  We recommend brake inspection - brake pads, rotors, calipers, brake fluid lines and the brake fluid itself - to make sure the braking system will work reliably under wet weather conditions.

Auto Repair in Fremont: The Components of a Vehicle That Will Eventually Need Replacing

Auto Repair in Fremont: The Components of a Vehicle That Will Eventually Need Replacing As your vehicle ages, some components will wear out or fail, and will need to be replaced. Your driving habits may also influence how quickly, or how often you will need to visit your local auto repair shop to have them replaced. The most commonly replaced vehicle components include: Windshield wipers - In general, wiper blades should be replaced at least once a year, though that's one of the easiest components to check - either they keep the windshield clear, or they need to go. Headlights -Approximately every five years - again, easy to check, if the light bulb is burned out, it's time for a replacement ( we recommend replacing light bulbs on both sides, since the other one is likely to fail soon as well). Taillights - Approximately every five years. Air filter -it really depends on where you drive and how dirty is the air tha ... read more

Fremont Automotive Services: Drive Belt Check

Drive belts need friction to operate. Friction between the belt and the pulleys allows power to transfer to an alternator, power steering pump, or an AC compressor. To maximize friction, belts and pulleys have grooves that line up, increasing the surface area in contact, thus increasing friction. Over time, though, the belt will wear out, and eventually, it can start to slip. So before you head out on that summer voyage, bring your vehicle to Fremont Auto Center, and we will get your car checked out for the trip. As part of the checkup, we will inspect the belts and check them for cracks and for signs of excessive wear. All services and repair work performed by our nationally ASE-certified mechanics are covered by our 24-month / 24,000-mile warranty – so bring your car to our Fremont auto repair shop, and we will get it ready for the road. Call us to make an appointment or request an appointment online.
