Maybe they just bought a used car and want to give it the once over. An inspection at McLean Auto Repair may reveal some things that are broken or are getting close to having a problem.
McLean Auto Repair Oil Change Service – there are several options: Some Elgin auto service centers offer just an oil change and new filter as an option. Most will also check and top off all of your other fluids and do a quick visual inspection with a full service oil change. There may also be options for higher mileage fluids or an upgrade to synthetic oil.
McLean Auto Repair PCV Valve Service: PCV stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation valve. It's a little part that releases pressure from the engine. It can get gummed up and that can lead to engine damage. Just needs to be changed now and then.
McLean Auto Repair Power Steering Service: Often overlooked. Your McLean Auto Repair technician will evacuate the old fluid, clean out the system and replace it with clean fluid. Keeps the system running well for a long time.
McLean Auto Repair Serpentine Belt Replacement: That's the belt that powers the engine's accessories like the alternator, air conditioner, power steering and brakes. You'll want to replace the serpentine belt at McLean Auto Repair before it breaks or wears down too much, because that'll lead to other problems.
McLean Auto Repair Shocks and Struts Replacement: This starts with an inspection of the suspension components. Shocks last a long time and wear out slowly, so many Elgin motorists don't notice when it's time to change them. If they're worn or leaking, they need to be replaced.
McLean Auto Repair Transmission Service: This involves removing the transmission fluid and replacing it with clean fluid. It's like an oil change for your transmission.
McLean Auto Repair Tire Rotation and Wheel Balancing: The tires are rotated from front to back using the recommended rotation pattern. This helps tires wear more evenly. Wheels need to be balanced from time to time to keep them turning without any wobble or bounce. Helps the ride and saves tire wear as you drive around Elgin.
