Most cars are water cooled, which means a water pump circulates water through the radiators and engine to keep them from 'heating up'. It is crucial that there are no water pump leakages or failures in your car. The cooling system also includes cooling fans, radiators and many more small components and keeping them in check is also important. Water pumps replacement and repair is also possible. 

Sometimes, buildup of fuel varnish deposit in the fuel injections can cause the car engine to stall or misfire. They need to be cleaned and serviced periodically as they can get clogged easily because of their very small openings. Along with all above services, we specialize in brakes and turn discs. Inspecting and replacing your brake pads may save you money by preventing a 'metal-on-metal' condition that accelerates the need to replace expensive rotors and/or drums. 

Properly working brakes are essential to vehicle safety and reliability. When you depress your brake pedal and stop your tires from rotating, you need the confidence to know that your vehicle will come to a complete and precise stop. This service includes replacing brake fluids, brake pads or shoes and resurfacing brake rotors and drums. You should have your brakes checked immediately if you experience problems like continuous grinding or squealing of breaks, ABS light turns on, brake pedals feel unusually soft, leaking brake fluid or your car jerks or pulls to one side when applying brakes.

We provide solutions to almost all other car problems. We strive to keep our customers satisfied by providing the best services available out there and keep our client base constantly growing.
