PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure your vehicle stays reliable, and lets you avoid major repairs as well as the expenses that come with them. At Folsom Auto Center, we provide a complete preventative maintenance program, and carry all the necessary parts and expertise to take care of the little jobs that let you avoid the big ones. Choose from a comprehensive range of the fluids, oils, filters, and belts that your vehicle needs to keep running happily and healthily. Relax while your ride is inspected by our highly-trained technicians, and rest assured that it'll keep running smoothly for miles and miles.

The first part of our preventative maintenance program deals with your vehicle's fluids. Your car needs these fluids to keep running smoothly and prevent overheating. Most of our fluid change services are completed quickly so you can get back on the road in Folsom, CA. Our technicians are happy to monitor and refill your engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, brake fluid, anti-freeze, power steering and wiper fluids. We also perform checks on your radiator to ensure there are no small leaks caused by stones and other road debris.

The next area of our program deals with the filters in your car. Whether filtering oil, fuel, or air, your car's engine and drivetrain rely on pure ingredients free from power-robbing particles. Your vehicle's fuel system, for example, wants only the purest gasoline or diesel. When microscopic particles build up in the system over time they reduce its efficiency and cause issues like decreased gas mileage. The same goes for your engine's air filter. An engine needs a mix of fuel and air to create combustion, and that can't happen if your motor can't breathe. Regularly changing your car's filters will prevent this from occurring. Folsom Auto Center will make sure all your car's filters are flowing smoothly and clear, as well as the often-overlooked cabin air filter which can make a huge difference in how pleasant a car is to be inside.

Tire balancing is an important area of preventative maintenance where we excel. If your car's tires are out of balance, they could be putting undue strain on components in the suspension, braking, and drivetrain systems, which can cost you greatly further down the road. Ensuring a smooth ride with professionally balanced wheels and tires is a much cheaper, easier, and safer way to make sure your car stays on the road, while ensuring a long life for your tires.

Your car's timing belts are extremely important to examine during the course of preventative maintenance. There are a number of events that need to take place for one full revolution of your car's engine. These belts ensure that they all line up with each other, and occur at exactly the right moment. Should the belts become damaged or break, the events can fall out of sync and happen at the wrong time, which can be seriously detrimental to the health of your engine and your car overall. Folsom Auto Center ensures that all your car's belts are healthy, and that all of those events keep happening at exactly the right time.

If you want Folsom Auto Center to make sure that your vehicle is well-equipped to continue transporting you safely for years to come, call us at 916-985-3455, or visit us in Folsom, CA so we can schedule a time to take a look at it!

Testimonials

  • My car overheated and I decided to bring my car her after someone recommended them. They were beyond helpful and even printed out information for me. They explained exactly what they were doing and why. It could have been more expensive, but they only charged the standard rate. I plan on going back again! Thanks Scott.

  • Scott was patient and thorough as was Alex. They took their time to really think through solutions for a rather difficult problem and then took care of everything really well. They were caring and competent. Scott explained the problems and possible solutions in a way that even someone like me could understand. I really appreciated that!
    -Sally O.

  • A Big thank you to Scott and the excellent staff at Folsom Auto Center for solving several problems in my car in one day, including check engine light with multiple codes and engine running rough, which had been progressively getting worse. Problem identified, new part, expert fine tuning and now it is running like new. They also provided shuttle service so I could pick up my car. First rate service and repairs!

  • Always the best service from them. Very thorough technicians and the best prices that I have been able to find. I have always done my own work on my car because I don't trust shops to work on it, but I happily take it to this shop.
    -Russell N.

  • Took a truck in to get a pre purchase inspection, the guys got the truck into the shop and onto a lift within two hours of me calling and they quickly discovered deal breaking issues. Everything was smoothe and professional from the beginning, I was even given a significant discount for the fact that they did their job so quickly. Could not have gone better. From now on all of my vehicles will come here for any and all issues. Customer for life

    -Debra D.

  • Scott makes you smile and his heart is made of Gold.
    -Linda C.

  • I went here after looking for a smog service. I think this location deserves 5 stars for being expedient and knowledgeable. I was explained in a way so that I could understand and I was not pressured to buy any service; in fact I was told to wait and save some money on a certain oil leak and that was important to me. This shop focused on safety and not unnecessary and/or costly repairs.
    -Joshua A.

  • Great, honest repair! Wouldn't trust anyone else with my vehicles.
    -Kala B.

  • Great Experience...Honest and knowledgeable guys ..Never knew about this place until my car keep failing smog test at other places and the reason they gave did not make any sense... Finally went to this place ..this guy (Alex) explained to me and fixed it without any additional cost and finally my car passed smog..
    -Ghor K.

  • They made a mistake but quickly fixed it! Good Service!
    -Drew P.

  • Really friendly staff and honest service, will definitely bring my cars back here if they have any issues. I had my car towed here because of the good reviews and I agree that they're well deserved.
    -Joshua H.

  • Love them. My family has been going to Scott for 30 some years. They are a little pricey but definitely worth it.
    -Kayla S.

  • This place is great, the guys that work there are pretty cool. Ron ( the owner) Is actually a really cool guy and Alex is really nice. The best part is that it's a family owned. These guys are doing a great job for their community
    -Akul K.

  • Went in today to because the headlights on my pickup were not working. Ron asked if I could wait while he looked into it. He then had two replacement bulbs delivered in about 10 minutes, installed them for free (no labor charge!) and all I had to pay for was the light bulbs. Yes, I will be back for ANYTHING that my car may need. Highly recommend this shop.
