Products And Services

  • AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE

    The air conditioning unit in your vehicle operates similarly to a refrigerator. Your vehicle’s air conditioning unit is designed to move heat from the inside of your car to outside of it. Your vehicle’s air conditioning unit has six major components: The refrigerant carries heat. In modern cars, refrigerant is a substance called R-134a. Older cars’ refrigerant is called r-12 freon, which is more expensive and difficult to find than R-134a. The compressor circulates and compresses refrigerant within the vehicle’s cooling system. Your vehicle’s condenser changes the refrigerant from gas to liquid and expels heat from the car. The expansion valve (sometimes called the orifice tube) is a nozzle that simultaneously drops the pressure of the refrigerant liquid, meter its flow and atomize it. Your vehicle’s evaporator transfers heat to the refrigerant from the air blown across it, cooling your car. The receiver or dryer filters your vehicle’s refrigerant and oil, removing moisture and other contaminants from them. When you start your vehicle’s air conditioning system, the compressor works by putting the refrigerant under pressure, sending it to the condensing coils, which are generally in front of your vehicle’s radiator. The condenser expels hot air to outside the car, cooling the air within the vehicle. When this happens, the refrigerant is cooled, and it changes form a gas to a liquid, which then passes through the expansion valve and to the evaporator. Once the evaporator receives the liquid-state refrigerant, it loses pressure and cools the remaining liquid. The vehicle’s blower moves air across the evaporator and into the vehicle’s interior. If you keep your air conditioning unit turned on, the refrigerant goes through this cycle continuously. If any of these components is damaged, it can turn your cool car into a furnace during the summer months. Your vehicle’s air conditioning issue could be as simple as topping off refrigerant to replacing a valve. When your air conditioning unit is not working as it should, bring your vehicle to D & J's Automotive. One of our trained air conditioning specialists will inspect your car’s air conditioner, all lines, the evaporator and the compressor for leaks and wear.

  • BRAKES

    Brakes are pretty much the most important safety device on your car. If you’ve ever partially lost your brakes in the past, you’ll agree that it’s not something you want to experience again. Inspecting your brakes twice a year for wear and damage can protect you and your passengers. Additionally, it will also help save you money by catching any damage before it becomes too costly. Brakes | D & J's Automotive Brake System Components That Can Fail The master cylinder, the heart of the vehicle’s braking system, holds the brake fluid when it is not being delivered to the brakes through the brake lines. If brake fluid leaks because the master cylinder is worn or brake lines are plugged or broken, the fluid cannot be delivered, and the brake pads will become ruined The brake fluid itself can become dirty or contaminated as it draws rust-causing moisture and picks up other debris, or it can break down from excess heat. Clean brake fluid is either clear or slightly yellow, while dirty brake fluid may be brown or even black. Old and dirty brake fluid can damage ABS brake systems internally. The brake lines connect to the master cylinder through a combination valve, which combines a metering and proportioning valve. It regulates the pressure on the front and rear wheels to make sure both sets of brakes are applied simultaneously. A malfunctioning combination valve may cause the wheels to lock up. Brake pads and shoes can be made of ceramic, metal or organic materials, while the disc rotors and drums they press against are made of metal. Because the pads and shoes create friction to stop the car, they gradually wear down over time and may wear away completely, letting the metal of the calipers and cylinders they are attached to grind against the rotors and drums and damage them. Some pads have a metal strip attached that sounds a warning whistle when the pad becomes too worn, but this strip sounds only when the car is in motion and the brakes are not applied.

  • DIESEL SERVICE

    Diesel engines are common in fleet vehicles, semi-trucks and pickup trucks. With the rising price of traditional gasoline, diesel is also becoming a more popular choice for family vehicles. Our shop provides service for diesel engines of all sizes. The experts at D & J's Automotive use the latest diagnostic tools to ensure your diesel engine is running as it should. Diesel engines are exceptionally reliable, but they do need regular maintenance in order to stay in top condition. You must keep your diesel engine’s oil and filters changed at regular, scheduled intervals. Because diesel engines do not have electrical ignition parts such as plugs and wires, there are fewer components within the vehicle that need to be maintained. Still, you do need to make sure that the regular maintenance that does need to be performed on your diesel vehicle is done by a shop that understands and is experienced in working with diesel engines. Problems such as leaky gaskets, cooling system issues, overheating, air and oil filtration issues, fuel system restrictions, dirty injectors, piston scoring, faulty injection timers and hard starting can be solved by bringing your diesel vehicle to the knowledgeable and experienced team at D & J's Automotive.

  • EMISSIONS

    Clean air is enjoyable for everyone. Many large cities now require vehicles to undergo emissions testing in order to minimize air pollution in and around metropolitan areas. If your vehicle fails the emissions test, you cannot complete your annual vehicle registration. Emissions tests minimize harmful pollutants in the air. With nearly 30 million Americans currently diagnosed with asthma, it is even more important to do all we can to keep air clean. By reducing harmful toxins in the air, we protect everyone. Here at D & J's Automotive, we not only perform emissions tests, but we can provide repairs if you fail the test. We are your one-stop shop for emissions testing and repairs. Come by our friendly shop today, and we can ensure your vehicle will not only be safe to drive but more environmentally friendly.

  • OIL CHANGE

    Engine Oil Engine oil is what lubricates a car’s engine, allowing it to run smoothly and last longer. Car owners must maintain a car’s engine by changing the oil and using the oil appropriate for their cars make and model. Every car comes with a “check oil” light and an oil filter under the hood. These components allow car owners to monitor their oil levels and add oil as needed without having to hire a mechanic. Changing the Oil An important part of routine car maintenance is changing the oil regularly. The necessary frequency of oil changes has become a point of contention among experts. The Engine Oil Bible maintains that engine oil can’t be changed often enough, but Nordic Group insists that, with the advent of detergent oils and multi-weight oils, some vehicles can go as far as 6,000 miles before needing an oil change. The best course of action is to check the owner’s manual and follow manufacturer’s recommendations. An obvious benefit of changing one’s own oil is saving money, but oil change services frequently advertise bargains. If the “check engine oil” light comes on while driving, this is a strong indication that the car is running low on oil. A driver does not need a mechanic to add oil. However, if the oil light stays on or lights up shortly after adding oil, there may be a leak, and a mechanic should look at the car.

  • PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

    The best way to prevent long-term and costly problems with your vehicle is to keep up with its preventative maintenance schedule. One major key to successfully making sure you are doing all you need to do is to read your vehicle’s owner’s manual. Regardless of your vehicle’s make or model, its owner’s manual will contain a maintenance schedule. Every make and model is different, and standby beliefs such as “You have to change your oil every 3,000 miles,” may not apply to your car. The maintenance schedule within your owner’s manual is provided by the people who understand your vehicle the best—the company that built it. The manufacturer provides suggestions for how often you need to change your oil, filters, driving belts, timing belts and more. While some preventative maintenance—such as topping off fluids—can be performed by the vehicle’s owner, other, more complicated procedures should be done by experts like the team at D & J's Automotive. Our team can keep your vehicle in top shape by performing the following maintenance: Inspecting and replacing timing belts (preventing damage to other accessories) Inspecting and replacing serpentine belts (preventing damage to other accessories) Checking and changing oil Checking, repairing and replacing battery connection components Checking and replacing batteries Checking and replacing cabin air filters. This can keep your car comfortable during the hot summer months. Checking and replacing your engine air filter. You may need to replace your engine air filter more frequently if you drive in stop-and-go traffic or have a long commute. Checking and replacing spark plugs Tire rotation. This helps ensure even wear on your tires, which can help prevent blowouts and leaking. It also helps make your ride smoother. Tire balancing. Balancing your tires prevents wear, which can significantly improve their life and save you money. Wheel alignment By following your vehicle’s owner’s manual and having your vehicle inspected and maintained regularly, you can greatly reduce problems and save money in the long run. Let the expert team at D & J's Automotive help your vehicle stay in good condition.

  • RADIATOR SERVICE

    Your vehicle’s radiator helps keep your engine cool. Overheated engines can lead to numerous problems, including eventual breakdowns. Your vehicle’ radiator sits at the front of the engine bay; it’s made up of slim, hollow channels that run between the inlet and outlet tanks. Coolant pumps through tubes to the engine, where it is warmed. Once the coolant reaches the engine, it goes to the radiator, which is constructed to cool the flowing liquid using the air passing the radiator. The cooled liquid cycles back through the engine, where it absorbs more heat. This cycle allows the engine to keep working at ideal temperatures. If your vehicle overheats, you may need to have your radiator serviced or replaced. An elevated temperature gauge is another sign that your radiator might be malfunctioning. Puddles of green, yellow or orange coolant under your car could indicate that there is a radiator leak, which could be caused by corrosion. If you notice any of these signs that your radiator needs to be serviced or replaced, bring your vehicle to D & J's Automotive. Our team of experts can fix leaks or replace your radiator so you can get back on the road worry-free.

  • TRANSMISSION SERVICE

    Using the latest in state-of-the-art technology, we will install a safe and effective cleaner to suspend harmful varnish and sludge from the transmission valve body, torque converter and lines and install new high-tech fluid with conditioners. Just like your engine, you should have your transmission serviced regularly. When D & J's Automotive services your transmission, we: Remove and inspect the pan Clean or replace the screen Clean the pan Reinstall the pan Install a new gasket Replace old transmission fluid with new, high quality fluid Make any additional needed changes and adjustments By replacing the old transmission fluid, the expert team at D & J's Automotive essentially gives your vehicle’s transmission new life. The new fluid restores your clutch’s holding power. This reduces slip and heat production. Additionally, flushing the old fluid gets rid of small bits of clutch material and metal shavings, which can damage your transmission by clogging passages and wedging themselves between moving parts. Getting rid of the old fluid reduces wear within the transmission. Replacing old fluid with new also provides better lubrication within the transmission, which boosts the holding ability of the transmission’s friction components. Improved lubrication also results in less heat. By decreasing friction and heat, your transmission will work better for a longer amount of time. A simple service can save you the money and time that come with a major transmission repair or replacement.

  • WHEEL ALIGNMENT

    How important is wheel alignment? Think of it this way: Research indicates that the average vehicle is driven about 12,000 miles per year. A car with a toe angle misadjustment of 0.34 degrees (only 0.17 inches) out of specification will drag the tires sideways for more than 68 miles by the end of the year! Wheel Alignment | D & J's Automotive What are the symptoms of a vehicle with incorrect alignment? Have your vehicle checked if you notice: Excessive or uneven tire wear The vehicle pulls to the left or right Feeling of looseness or wandering Steering wheel vibration or shimmy Steering wheel is not centered when the vehicle is moving straight ahead How often should I have my vehicle aligned? Follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation noted in your owner’s manual. As a general rule, have your wheel alignment checked every 10,000 miles or at least once a year. The importance of Total Alignment: Reduced Tire Wear: Improper alignment is a major cause of premature tire wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of miles to tire life. Most tires are replaced prematurely due to adverse wear. Better Gas Mileage: Gas mileage increases as rolling resistance decreases. Total Alignment sets all four wheels parallel, which along with proper inflation, minimizes rolling resistance. Improved Handling: Does your car pull to one side? Do you constantly have to move the steering wheel to keep your car traveling straight ahead? Many handling problems can be corrected by Total Alignment service. With all the vehicle components aligned properly, road shock is more efficiently absorbed for a smoother ride. Safer Driving: A suspension system inspection is part of the alignment procedure. This allows worn parts to be detected before they cause costly problems.
