Oil Change in Albany, CA

Oil Change in Albany, CA   We normally don’t think much of oil change, yet it is one of the most beneficial maintenance tasks you can offer to your vehicle. Engine oil works under high pressures and high temperatures. Over time, it not only loses its original mechanical and chemical properties, but also picks up a lot of gunk and debris that naturally get created during engine operation.  When we perform an oil change at our Albany auto repair shop, we replace the oil filter, which removes the debris from the circulating oil, and provide your vehicle with fresh oil, which has chemical and physical parameters specified by your vehicle’s manufacturer.  Regular oil changes help to extend engine life, and they also give our nationally certified technicians an opportunity to check other sub-systems of your vehicle for any impending problems. We will also check your vehicle’s tires and adjust tire pressure if needed.  If your vehicle uses convention ... read more

5 Ways To Know Your Vehicle May Need Brake Service

Brakes are the most important safety system in a vehicle as they help to prevent accidents. As a result, they should always be in top working condition. While routine brake inspection is vital to prevent problems, issues can still develop in between checkups. Here are the top five ways to know your car needs brake service. 1. ABS light is on Your dashboard has several indicators that turn on when dealing with a potential or existing problem. So if a light that says ABS illuminates on your dashboard, it's your car's way of telling you that its sensors have detected some problem and that your brakes need servicing. ABS stands for Anti-Lock Braking System, and the light is usually either red, orange, or yellow, which means it is fairly obvious to spot when it comes on.  2. Vibration while driving If you can feel a vibration in the brake pedal, steering, or throughout the car anytime, you brake, head over to an auto repair shop immediately ... read more

Auto Repair in Albany: Brake Service and Repair– the Warning Signs

Your car’s brake pads are sometimes referred to as “friction items” – they get used up through friction they generate during braking. It’s very difficult to estimate the length of brake pad service, because it depends on the vehicle, type of driving, traffic, terrain ( hilly roads tend to use up brakes much faster) and other factors. Fortunately, modern vehicles usually warn the driver that brakes need to be serviced, and if you regularly service your vehicle at our Albany auto repair shop, we can measure the thickness of the brake pads, and tell you if they need to be replaced.    However, sometimes there are other issues that indicate a need for brake service or repairs. Here are some that should motivate you to bring your vehicle to a “mechanic near me”, and of course we believe that our family owned and operated Albany auto repair shop is just the right place for brake service and repairs:   Low Brakin ... read more

Auto Air Conditioning Refill aka A/C Recharge

A failing or non-functioning air conditioning can be a major inconvenience, and of course a/c systems seem to fail at the worst possible time – usually during the hottest day of the year. If your car's AC is no longer working as it should, it could be due to low refrigerant (Freon) levels. In such instances, an auto air conditioning refill (recharge) is what your car needs to resume offering a cool breeze.  A/C refrigerant gas (Freon) is the key component of the auto a/c system. If your vehicle is low on Freon, a/c system will not function effectively, you may get only slightly cooled air. If the system lost all Freon, a/c will not provide any cooling. At Adams Autoworx in Albany we offer A/C checkup and refill. We verify that the AC system has no leaks, and top up (recharge) the refrigerant if needed. Signs your vehicle's AC needs to be recharged or checked for problems: How can you tell if your car's air conditioning needs to be r ... read more
