Automotive Systems and Components Inspected

Auto Engine Inspection

Our technicians will evaluate the overall condition of the engine, including the radiator, hoses, water pump, cooling system, ignition system, spark plugs, wires, coils, distributor cap & rotor, drive belt, tensioner, transmission mounts, and engine mounts. We will also check for engine oil leaks, transmission fluid leaks, and radiator leaks. Should you find a good deal on a car which does have some engine problems, Auto Service Experts mechanics specialize in motor rebuilding and repair.


Brake Check

We check the brake pads & brake rotors (on both sides of the vehicle, front and rear), as well as all calipers. We check the firmness of the brake pedal and make sure the emergency brake engages properly. We also verify that the brake fluid is at the proper level, and look for any leaks.


Suspension & Steering System Inspection

Our experienced car mechanics will inspect the vehicle's steering system as well as the front and rear suspension. We evaluate the condition of the shocks, struts, Idler arm, steering gear, tie rod ends, U-Joints, wheel bearings, and look for any leaks. 


Starting / Charging System

We test the battery voltage & load, and look for any leakage or corrosion, and verify proper functioning of the starter and alternator. 


Fluid Level / Leak Checks

We verify the proper fluid level & condition and check for any leaks in the manual or automatic transmission, engine, cooling system, brakes and transfer case. 


Auto AC Check / Vehicle Heating & Air Conditioning System Inspection

Our automotive mechanic specialists check the AC compressor, fan, and belts, verify Freon level, and ensure proper flow of both hot and cold air from the vents into the cabin. If the car or truck shows any signs of car air conditioning system problems, we will inform you that your vehicle may require AC maintenance or service, depending on the specific issues detected.

Routine Car Safety Inspections

Having a car inspected before you buy it can save you a great deal of money, and prevent major headaches & safety issues. Routine inspections on the vehicle you already own can do the same! Auto Service Experts provides inspections of certain automotive systems on your personal vehicle (including check engine light diagnostics & auto AC checks) free of charge.
