CLEARVIEW CAR CARE REPAIR WARRANTY
Don’t just take our word for it.
We highly encourage you to read through our Testimonials and see what our customers have to say about us.
Diagnostic services have become a major part of car maintenance over recent years. And, here at Clearview Car Care we keep up to date with the latest technologies.
Sometimes, an unrecognizable warning light will come on and suddenly you get that sinking feeling in your chest.
Most of the time, there is absolutely nothing to worry about. It could simply be that your washer fluid is low or that your right rear tire needs topping up with air.
A simple glance at your owner’s manual should give you the answer. But, if not, give us a call or drop by and we’ll quickly plug in, diagnose and address the situation. Check out our Diagnostics Page.
BRAKE PAD REPLACEMENT
Apart from knowing that your car will start in the mornings and run smoothly, it is more important that it can also stop when it needs to. Your safety, and the safety of others is vital.
If you feel or hear something slightly different than usual like a squeal or grinding when you apply your brakes, it is time to urgently have your brakes inspected and serviced.
Brakes need to be inspected regularly anyway, but sometimes they might get worn more rapidly than we expect because of possible increased mileage. If this is the case, give us a call at Clearview Car Care and we’ll check them out quickly, whether it’s brake pads, brake discs, brake linings or brake fluid, we’ll get it done to give you peace of mind. Check out our Brakes Page.
If you happen to drive down 270 anytime, you will notice how bad the road surfaces are. And if you use the Waze app on your cell phone for directions, you may hear it tell you “pothole ahead’. Probably more than once. Well, these potholes can cause your vehicle serious problems and make it difficult to keep a straight line. This happens when your wheels can go out of alignment.
Tell-tale signs that your wheels are out of alignment are: steering wheel vibration/judder (especially at certain speeds), unevenly worn tires, and/or your vehicle tending to drift one way or the other instead of keeping in a straight line.
Check out our YouTube video which explains the difference between wheel balancing and wheel alignment.
If you become aware of any of these issues, bring your car down to us, either at the South Wisner location or our North shop situated at 435 North Market Street, Frederick and let us get your car running straight and true. Take a look at our. Wheel Alignment Page
OK, so now that we have addressed the wheel alignment issue, let’s make sure that there has not been too much damage to the tire surfaces.
As long as there is still some depth of rubber and tread, if there is visible uneven wear, we might simply need to balance the wheels and tires and rotate them. i.e. basically, swap them round to different positions on the car.
If there is too much damage or if you’re ready to buy a new set of tires, we can take care of that too.
By the way, when it comes to price, you’ll be surprised at how competitive we are with the specialist tire shops in the Frederick area. Our price is our price, there are no added this or added that. Check out our Tire Page.
Oil changes are something that needs to be done at regular intervals. Those intervals are determined either by the mileage the vehicle does or the amount of time that has elapsed since the last oil change.
Oil and oil filter changes are important because they help to preserve the engine and will help to keep it running smoothly, potentially, for years longer. Skipped oil changes, if left for too long, will have the opposite effect.
Ensure that you regularly check your oil level and note its color and clarity. In older vehicles, if you run low on oil, it could spell the end of the engine, and probably the car, without too much warning.
Don’t wait till that little oil can light comes on while you’re stuck on 270! Check out our YouTube page where Lisa shows you How To Check Your Oil! Check out our Oil Changes Page
ENGINE TUNING / TUNE-UPS /
Car maintenance and/or engine tuning is something all cars need sooner or later. It’s always best to have it done at regular intervals than to wait until there’s an obvious problem..
Various aspects of an engine tune up or service are required at different intervals. Some, like oil change, are often at 3,000 miles, other things like spark plugs, can go on for years. Your vehicle’s own specific hand-book will tell you what the recommended intervals are in your case.
If your car sounds different, feels different, or is now not starting on the first turn as it usually does, then don’t wait until you find yourself waiting for a tow truck in Downtown Frederick with bags full of Christmas shopping and your grandma needing the bathroom.
A regular inspection of the spark plugs, fuel line, filters, brakes, steering, hoses etc., can prevent a much larger problem in the future.
Engine tuning is affordable. Don’t add the cost of a tow truck and Enterprise car rental. See our Tune Up page.
