Additional Services at our Express Lubes

Did you know that it takes approximately 10,000 gallons of air for each gallon of fuel that propels today's cars? The only way for air to enter the engine is through the air intake after passing through the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, three things can happen: reduced engine power, decreased throttle response and increased engine wear. Most manufacturers recommend a new air filter every 7,500 miles. Check your owner's manual for your carmaker's recommendations. We carry a wide selection of air filters to meet the needs of most automobile manufacturers. If you would like to confirm that we have the right air filter for your vehicle, please call ahead. If we do not have the filter on hand, we will do our best to get it.

Periodic replacement of your cabin air filter helps cut down on pollutants and allergens inside your vehicle. This helps keep the air that you and your family/passengers are breathing much cleaner.

Some of the fuel filters come with life time guarantee, yet it is safer and definitely better to change these filters after regular intervals. Consult your manual or your trusted technician. In case of high mileage vehicles, it is always preferable to change the fuel filter at an interval of one year to avoid plugging. Being in regular touch with moisture leads to corrosion and the debris of this corrosion often flows into the fuel tank at the time of pouring fuel. A clean filter means better performance and better gas mileage.

We carry many quality replacement wiper blades. Ninety percent of all driving decisions require a clear view of the road, which means good visibility is essential - especially during wet weather when vision may be obstructed by water, road splash, sleet or snow on the windshield. Good visibility requires wipers that are in good condition. If the wipers are chattering, streaking or otherwise failing to wipe cleanly and consistently, you need new blades now. Don't delay, your safety depends on it.

Our T-TECH(R) machine replaces ALL THE FLUID in your transmission, not just a few quarts, as is standard with most transmission services. T-TECH(R) drains and traps your vehicle's old fluid, including that in your torque converter, and replaces it with factory new fluid. This service extends the life and improves the performance of your transmission.

A vehicle's cooling system is responsible for maintaining the correct operating temperature of the engine. When the cooling system fails to operate properly, over-heating or freeze-up may occur. Failure to replace your coolant at recommended intervals can result in acid corrosion and costly repairs. Our Coolant Exchange Service is designed to replace your vehicle's old coolant from the entire cooling system, for optimum performance. We recommend following your manufacturer's recommended interval when replacing your vehicle's coolant.

Car batteries are tapped each and every time you turn your key. A good strong battery will start you on the first try regardless of heat, cold weather and drivers who demand so much of them. Batteries, do not last forever and sometimes quit without warning, leaving us stranded. A good rule of thumb is to start keeping a watchful eye on performance after about four years. We sell top quality Exide and Parts Plus Automotive Batteries.

Most manufacturers recommend periodic changes of vehicle fluids. See your owner's manual for recommendations for your automobile. We are prepared to drain and refill the lubricants in the gear boxes of your vehicle. We carry a wide selection of automotive fluids to meet the needs of most automobile manufacturers. If you question whether or not we are prepared to perform a service on your vehicle, call ahead. If we do not have the fluids on hand, we will do our best to get them.

Since the early 1980's, most vehicle manufacturers designed engines driven by just one serpentine belt. Because this belt performs a major function, proper inspection and maintenance is vital. If your serpentine belt fails, the vehicle cannot operate. We inspect the condition of your belts every time we perform a Star Service(R) Oil Change on your vehicle. Manufacturers recommend replacement when cracks in excess of four inches or those penetrating half way through the belt are evident.

We stock a large selection of bulbs and fuses, for the convenience and safety of our customers. If you are aware that your vehicle has a burned out light or fuse, please contact us before your visit. If we do not have the parts you need, we will do our best to get them.

These are actual photos from a headlight that we restored. Over time your headlight surfaces become pitted and scratched, leaving them cloudy and dull, decreasing visibility. Our reconditioning restores them, removing the fogginess, increasing effectiveness and your visibility, for safer driving.
