Undercar Repair, Service and Maintenance
At Rick's Automotive Service, we provide a number of different under car services, such as:
Wheel alignment is a type of maintenance that involves adjusting the wheel angle to ensure they are set according to manufacturer specifications. This allows the steering system and suspension to operate at its proper angle to reduce wear on the tires.
Anti-lock brakes were designed to prevent the wheels from locking up when you rapidly decelerate. They automatically modulate brake pressure when stopping in an emergency. Your wheels can maintain traction while you brake. When these brakes fail, it could end up leading to a multi-vehicle collision.
Brakes are designed to help your vehicle slow down and come to a stop. They inhibit your vehicle's movement. They allow you to stop your car when you so choose. They are one of the most pivotal parts of your vehicle. If you don't have working brakes, your vehicle won't stop.
The chassis is the internal framework of the vehicle. It supports the engine, wheels, driveshaft, transmission, suspension and differential. Weak chassis often means a weak car.
The differential is responsible for transferring engine power to your wheels. It passes the power to the wheels and allows them to rotate at various speeds. All four wheels travel at different rates of speed when turning, which is why it is so important.
The exhaust system is the piping that pushes the exhaust fumes out of your engine and through to the rear of your vehicle. When working properly, it sounds better and is better for the environment and yourself.
Drivelines are the part of your vehicle connecting the transmission and the engine to the axles. If the driveline fails, your vehicle isn't going to move because there is no way to transmit the energy to the axles.
Tires lose their traction over time, leading to an increased chance of a burst tire. This can cause you to lose control of your vehicle.
Shocks were designed to provide you with a smooth ride. They reduce the effects of traveling over rough terrain, improving overall ride quality and handling. If they wear out, it can cause you to sway as you turn.
