Brakes wear out over time, requiring service and repairs to function properly. How long your brakes last will depend on various factors, such as driving conditions and how you brake. At Augusta & Paulina Auto Service, we are familiar with the tough driving conditions here in Chicago, and know that your brakes need care, so we provide a complimentary 28-point inspection with every service to make sure any brake issue is taken care of before it becomes a major concern.
When your vehicle is properly tuned, the ignition system, fuel system, emission system, and computer system are all working together in perfect harmony. When they are not, you need a tune-up. As part of a tune-up, we’ll check, and replace as necessary, your spark plugs, ignition coils, distributor cap and rotor, and ignition wires. Afterward, you’ll enjoy improved vehicle performance, and likely save money at the gas pump.
With the latest emissions standards, vehicle emission systems have become more complex and important than ever. Properly functioning emission control systems not only ensure a cleaner environment, but peak vehicle performance as well. At Augusta & Paulina Auto Service, we have experience handling all manner of emissions system component issues, such as the air injection pump, catalytic converter, evaporative emission control, oxygen sensor, and positive crankcase ventilation valve (PCV).
Choosing the right tires, maintaining them properly, and replacing them when needed might help you avoid a serious accident, and is likely to make driving more pleasant and cut gasoline and other costs. The tire techs at Augusta & Paulina will help you get the best tires for your needs and budget, and install them properly. When it comes to tires, don’t take your chances on a sketchy tire lot. You and your car deserve better.
Computerized engine control systems have a certain amount of built-in self-diagnostic capability to identify problems affecting engine performance and emissions. When a fault is detected, the computer will store a diagnostic trouble code in its memory and illuminate the check engine light. Our mechanics are equipped with modern diagnostic technology and tried-and-true experience to pinpoint the exact issue causing your check engine light to come on.
Your vehicle’s heat and air conditioning system is essential for your comfort, and in some cases your safety, while driving. You don’t want to be caught on a frigid February day in Chicago without heat, and the same goes for A/C in August. Our mechanics can identify any problem you’re experiencing with your vehicle’s heater or air conditioning, including repairing or replacing your condenser, receiver, compressor, clutch, expansion valve, hoses, and electronic climate control units.
With extended use and time, components of your vehicle’s suspension system are subject to gradual wear and tear. A poorly performing suspension makes your vehicle harder to control, and you may experience nosediving when braking and bottoming out on speed bumps. If this is you, we’ll check your shocks, struts, mounts, control arms and bushings, alignment, leaf springs, torsion bars, and coil springs to determine the exact issue with your suspension system.
The best way to minimize the chance of a serious breakdown and the high costs associated with major auto repairs is by sticking to a preventive maintenance schedule. Preventive vehicle maintenance is simply taking care of the upkeep suggested by your vehicle’s manufacturer, such as fluid flushes and oil changes. Whether you have a car, truck, or SUV, we provide maintenance services to keep it running well.
