Deciphering The Menu Board At Mackert Automotive: A to ZMay 1st, 2012
You may not be familiar with all of the items on Mackert Automotive'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 Mackert Automotive service advisor about other possible needs or services.
Mackert Automotive Fuel System Cleaning: Over time, the fuel system gets gum and varnish built up. A fuel system cleaning at Mackert Automotive gets rid of that and cleans out the fuel injectors. Saves gas as you drive around Gig Harbor and on Anderson Island freeways, by the way.
Mackert Automotive 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 Mackert Automotive advisor for information.
Mackert Automotive Inspections: Gig Harbor 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 Gig Harbor. Maybe they just bought a used car and want to give it the once over. An inspection at Mackert Automotive may reveal some things that are broken or are getting close to having a problem.
Mackert Automotive Oil Change Service – there are several options: Some Gig Harbor 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.
Mackert Automotive 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.
Mackert Automotive Power Steering Service: Often overlooked. Your Mackert Automotive 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.
Mackert Automotive 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 Mackert Automotive before it breaks or wears down too much, because that'll lead to other problems.
Mackert Automotive Shocks and Struts Replacement: This starts with an inspection of the suspension components. Shocks last a long time and wear out slowly, so many Gig Harbor motorists don't notice when it's time to change them. If they're worn or leaking, they need to be replaced.
Mackert Automotive Transmission Service: This involves removing the transmission fluid and replacing it with clean fluid. It's like an oil change for your transmission.
Mackert Automotive 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 Gig Harbor.
