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.
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 extended warranty
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
Qualifies for VPS extended warranty
Drain the old fluid using power steering exchange equipment. Clean the entire system using Valvoline Power Steering Treatment. Add new fluid. What It Does For Your Vehicle:

Maximize your tire life with regular rotation. This service also improves the ride and handling of your car.Rotating your tires according to manufacturer’s recommendations (usually 3,000 to 5,000 miles even if they don’t show signs of wear) promotes even wear and prolongs their life.
SOFT CLOTH CAR WASH
After getting your car’s insides clean and well, make the outside look great as well with a quality car washing. We also include a FREE carwash with any oil change!
AIR AND CABIN FILTER
Your air filter traps dirt and other particles – protecting your engine from damage, improving gas mileage, increasing horsepower and decreasing air pollution. The air inside your vehicle can contain up to six times the amount of unfiltered pollutants than the outside air. Protect yourself and your family with a new cabin air filter. It’s essential to have your air filter replaced according to your manufacturer’s recommended schedule to keep your vehicle running smoothly year-round.

OIL SYSTEM CLEANER
Complete Oil System Cleaner
This system thoroughly cleans your engine by using specially formulated solutions to dissolve accumulations of sludge, tar, varnish and wear metals. A perfectly clean engine means better performance, superior fuel economy and longer engine life.
Gearbox fluid protects your vehicle against heat and contaminants by lubricating gears, bearings, and shafts. This fluid should be changed according to your manufacturer’s recommended schedule. Our Gearbox Service includes:
- Removal of the old gearbox fluid
- Inspection of check plug and drain plug
- Refilling the gearbox with new fluid
Did You Know?
Over time, old gearbox fluid loses its ability to clean and lubricate. Make sure to have your gearbox fluid replaced at manufacturer-recommended intervals
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.
Did You Know?
A clean windshield is important for your safety. Inspect your wiper blades often and keep your washer fluid reservoir full.
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.
FUEL FILTER REPLACEMENT
The engine needs gas to run and the fuel filter protects your carburetor or fuel injection system from the smallest of particles from the gas tank. A partially clogged filter will usually allow enough fuel to keep the engine running, but it will sacrifice performance and fuel economy.
Does your car battery have blue or green stuff around the terminals? Corrosive build-up on battery terminals reduce cranking power and shortens the battery lifespan, which could leave you stranded. Our Anti-Corrosion Battery Terminal Service helps restore cranking capacity for easier starts and helps extend battery life. We also can test the battery and replace if necessary.
AC RECHARGE SERVICE
Improve your comfort driving around in the Texas heat with an AC recharge. Servicing your air conditioning system with fresh refrigerant can be completed in 20 to 30 minutes in most cases and we’ll save you big bucks compared to the dealership. No appointment is necessary.
USED OIL COLLECTION
If you’re a do-it-yourselfer and change your own oil, bring it to us for recycling (up to 5 gallons per day). Accepting used oil is one way we demonstrate our commitment to the community by maintaining a clean environment.
- Store used motor oil in a clean plastic container with a lid
- Do not mix used oil with brake, transmission fluid or water
- We cannot accept used oil if is combined with other fluids
