STATE INSPECTION

We are an authorized Massachusetts state car inspection station.  Your vehicle must undergo both an emissions test and a safety inspection every year before its current inspection sticker expires (at the end of the month printed on the sticker).  If you purchase a vehicle (new or used), it must be inspected within seven calendar days of its registration to continue operating on Massachusetts roadways.  To avoid end-of-the-month lines,  we recommend you have your vehicle tested during the first half of the month when it is due for an inspection.

TRANSMISSIONS

To extend the life and improve the performance of your transmission, it’s important to have its Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) replaced completely according to your manufacturer’s recommended schedule. That’s because heat and mileage cause the vital additives in ATF to become oxidized, depleted, and inert. And worn-out ATF can result in rough shifting, accelerated wear and even transmission failure.  If your car is shifting roughly, you may need to have your transmission fluid filled. It only takes about 10-15 minutes for us to:

  • Completely drain the transmission and torque converter
  • Refill it with new Valvoline® ATF
  • Qualifies for VPS

COOLING SYSTEMS

Keep your car running smoothly year-round by having your cooling system flushed and refilled with fresh antifreeze/coolant according to your manufacturer’s recommended schedule. Over time, antifreeze/coolant breaks down and can lose many of its protective properties, and can even cause radiator rust and corrosion. The cooling system itself can get clogged with built-up deposits from oil, grease, scale, hose decomposition, and other materials.  Your antifreeze/coolant should be changed every three to four years, and the system should be flushed to remove dirt and deposits. In about 15 to 30 minutes we will:

  • Drain and flush the entire cooling system
  • Refill it with fresh Zerex® Antifreeze/Coolant
  • Check for leaks, check all hoses, clamps and the radiator cap

When you’re on the road, it’s a critical safety concern to have a clean windshield. That’s why we always inspect your wiper blades when you bring in your car. And if we find that your blades are worn, we’ll replace them for you for a small charge.

SERPENTINE BELT SERVICE

The serpentine belt uses your engine’s power to run several systems, including: the alternator, power steering, and air conditioner. Over time serpentine belts dry out and crack. It’s important to have it inspected regularly and replaced according to your manufacturer’s recommended schedule. Replacing the belt helps protect you from breakdown. As part of every full-service oil change, we visually inspect your car’s serpentine belt for excessive cracks. Keep in mind that the appearance doesn’t always reveal whether it’s about to break. So be sure to have it replaced on schedule – no matter how it looks.
