Below is a small sample of some of the most frequent and most important auto repairs and services we perform at our Castro Valley auto repair garage:
Oil Change – we cannot stress highly enough how important regular oil change is for your vehicle – fresh engine oil and engine oil filters improve engine performance and extend engine life. We recommend using fully synthetic engine oil since it withstands high heat better and maintains longer its lubricating power.
Auto Air Conditioning Service– we offer comprehensive air conditioning system testing, repairs, and ac coolant refill. We can diagnose and repair coolant leaks, as well as electrical and mechanical air conditioning malfunctions.
Brake Service – our Castro Valley car care center offers a complete range of brake services. We routinely perform brake pad replacement, rotors replacement, brake calipers repair, brake fluid flush, master brake cylinder repair, as well as brake fluid line and hose repair. We service and repair disc brakes, drum brakes, and we also offer anti-lock (ABS) brakes service and repairs.
Engine Repairs – our nationally ASE-certified technicians provide a full range of engine services and repairs, including oil change, oil leak detection, oil leak repair, check engine light diagnostics, tune-up, timing belt replacement, and head gasket replacement, if necessary.
Catalytic Converter Replacement – sadly, due to rampant theft, we are doing a lot of catalytic converter replacements. If your vehicle’s catalytic converter is stolen, we will repair the damage (which often includes oxygen sensor damage as well) and install a new catalytic converter.
Check Engine Light Diagnostics – your vehicle’s computer can illuminate the check engine light due to hundreds when sensors report conditions that are outside of manufacturer specified range, or there are literally hundreds of reasons why your vehicle may illuminate the check engine light. Our technicians will use state-of-the-art digital diagnostic tools to find the root cause and repair your vehicle.
Timing Belt Replacement – there are still millions of cars on the roads that have timing belts, and most manufacturers recommend timing belt replacement every 100,000 miles or so. This is a major job, but the cost of not doing it in a timely fashion can include even more expensive engine repairs in case the timing belt breaks, or one of the “teeth” shears off.
