Deciphering The Menu Board At The Star Auto Service: A to ZAug 9th, 2012
You may not be familiar with all of the items on The Star Auto Service's menu board so here is a quick description of some of the typical services that might be listed. Remember, the board is there for reference; speak to your The Star Auto Service service advisor about other possible needs or services.
The Star Auto Service Fuel System Cleaning: Over time, the fuel system gets gum and varnish built up. A fuel system cleaning at The Star Auto Service gets rid of that and cleans out the fuel injectors. Saves gas as you drive around Richardson and on GARLAND freeways, by the way.
The Star Auto Service Headlamp Replacement: Halogen and standard headlamps gradually fade. When one burns out, replace both so they'll have the same brightness. Also, if your headlamp lenses are yellowed or cloudy, you can have them professionally restored to like new-condition. As your friendly and knowledgeable The Star Auto Service advisor for information.
The Star Auto Service Inspections: Richardson drivers get inspections for many reasons. Maybe they're going on a trip or just want to make sure their vehicle's ready for summer or winter in Richardson. Maybe they just bought a used car and want to give it the once over. An inspection at The Star Auto Service may reveal some things that are broken or are getting close to having a problem.
The Star Auto Service Oil Change Service – there are several options: Some Richardson auto service centers offer just an oil change and new filter as an option. Most will also check and top off all of your other fluids and do a quick visual inspection with a full service oil change. There may also be options for higher mileage fluids or an upgrade to synthetic oil.
The Star Auto Service PCV Valve Service: PCV stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation valve. It's a little part that releases pressure from the engine. It can get gummed up and that can lead to engine damage. Just needs to be changed now and then.
The Star Auto Service Power Steering Service: Often overlooked. Your The Star Auto Service technician will evacuate the old fluid, clean out the system and replace it with clean fluid. Keeps the system running well for a long time.
The Star Auto Service Serpentine Belt Replacement: That's the belt that powers the engine's accessories like the alternator, air conditioner, power steering and brakes. You'll want to replace the serpentine belt at The Star Auto Service before it breaks or wears down too much, because that'll lead to other problems.
The Star Auto Service Shocks and Struts Replacement: This starts with an inspection of the suspension components. Shocks last a long time and wear out slowly, so many Richardson motorists don't notice when it's time to change them. If they're worn or leaking, they need to be replaced.
The Star Auto Service Transmission Service: This involves removing the transmission fluid and replacing it with clean fluid. It's like an oil change for your transmission.
The Star Auto Service Tire Rotation and Wheel Balancing: The tires are rotated from front to back using the recommended rotation pattern. This helps tires wear more evenly. Wheels need to be balanced from time to time to keep them turning without any wobble or bounce. Helps the ride and saves tire wear as you drive around Richardson.
