A/C – Air Conditioning
Your vehicle’s air conditioning system provides you with a comfortable ride come summer and helps prevent driver fatigue. It’s also true that if your A/C isn’t working properly, you’ll not only be sweating, you could be damaging additional air conditioning system components. For example, an A/C system operating on low refrigerant due to a leak will eventually damage the compressor—an expensive A/C repair we can help you avoid. Come to Simpson Brothers Garage if your A/C isn’t working as it should.
Brakes & Brake Inspections
You must be able to rely on your car’s brakes to give you maximum stopping power when you need it, so if you’re experiencing any symptoms of a brake problem, such as brake squealing, grinding, or slow braking response time, it’s time for a brake inspection, and probably a brake repair. If you come to us ASAP, it’s likely the repair will be simpler and less expensive than if you wait and allow a small issue to damage other brake system components. Our mechanics are brake experts, trained to precisely service and repair all brake systems.
Heating & Cooling Systems
Your vehicle’s heating system transfers engine heat to your car’s interior, while your cooling system is responsible for reducing the temperature inside your engine and preventing possible overheating—two different, but related, functions. And because the heating and cooling systems work in tandem, problems with the heating system can affect the cooling system and vice versa. Our mechanics are heating and cooling system experts who understand how to investigate and repair heating and cooling system problems.
Scheduled preventive maintenance is the care and protection of your vehicle against potential major auto repairs. Vehicle manufacturer maintenance intervals are also designed to improve the reliability, durability, and resale value of your car or truck. Depending on your vehicle’s service interval mileage, our mechanics may inspect the function of your steering and suspension components, fluids, filters, belts and hoses, and more to help ensure your vehicle functions efficiently.
Regular tune-ups can make your engine easier to start, improve your fuel economy, and maintain your vehicle’s pep and power, while identifying issues that may cause you problems down the road. As part of a tune-up, we’ll check your battery voltage, power balance, engine vacuum, idle speed, and your ignition timing. In addition to these performance checks, we’ll inspect your belts, hoses, and fluids. Then for preventive maintenance, we’ll replace your spark plus (if required), and filters and fluids as necessary.
Buying a used vehicle is a great way to get the car you love without the new-car price tag. However, before you purchase a preowned car or truck—no matter who or where you’re buying it from—have us conduct a thorough vehicle inspection for you. Even if the car looks great, it may still have a serious, hidden (and expensive!) problem lurking around the corner. In most cases, only a qualified and experienced automotive mechanic can spot these issues and save you from purchasing an unreliable vehicle.
