No, we are not talking about the price cuts – though if you were driving within the last 3 months or so on I-880 through Fremont, you might have noticed a lot of Teslas sitting in the parking lot – that’s an unusual sight. So price cuts were likely to follow. But the good news for everyone is that Tesla is making more and more spare parts available to independent auto repair shops – so over time we will be able to expand our Tesla maintenance and repair services. You will no longer have to wait weeks for an appointment at the Tesla repair center. Adams Autoworx is the premier Castro Valley auto care facility that also offers selected Tesla maintenance services. We can also provide your Tesla with tire rotation new tires as well. So if your Tesla needs a bit of TLC, call our family owned and operated Castro Valley auto care garage to make an appointment – we are happy to be of service.

Engine oil is vital to your Honda’s engine. Engine oil not only lubricates moving parts, but also removes impurities, metal shavings, and other gunk that gets generated as a by-product of the normal engine operation. Engine oil picks up these impurities and they get deposited on the oil filter. However, over time the filter gets clogged and loses its effectiveness. Engine oil also undergoes chemical changes due to high heat in the engine, and its lubricating properties get diminished. That’s why at Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley we recommend regular oil changes, and we highly recommend fully synthetic (as opposed to synthetic blend) engine oil. If you plan on keeping your vehicle for the foreseeable future, regular oil change is the way to go. Signs your Honda needs oil change Most drivers rely on mileage as a way of telling when their Honda is due for oil change but other factors come into play as well. Here are some signs that it’s time for your ... read more

Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley offers not only comprehensive auto maintenance services and repairs, but we also offer new tires, and tire repair. Sadly, with the sorry state of the Bay Area roads, and all kinds of objects on the roads and streets, tire repair is a task we seem to undertake almost every day. Not all tire damage can be repaired – there are two conditions that would stop us from repairing the tire - damage to the side wall or when the inner liner is damaged. If your tires suffered either of the two, we would offer you a replacement tire, because repairing a tire in either of these two conditions would make them unsafe. In other cases, we can perform tire repair, though it is a multi-stage process: First we inspect the tire on the outside looking for tread wear (if the tread is too worn, the tire needs to be replaced), tire rot, any obvious signs of other damage. Next we dismount the tire, look for damage to the inner liner and side wall. Once the tire pas ... read more
