We at TGK Automotive offer a FREE full courtesy inspection on all makes and models with any paid service work that is completed in one of our shops. We offer this service to our customers because we feel it’s important for the owner to feel safe driving your vehicle. It’s also important for you to know where your vehicle is at as far as manufactured maintenance recommendations. This will extend the life of your vehicle and will help you keep the high cost repair bills away from your vehicle.

After we do a FREE courtesy inspection we’ll sit down with you and do a consultation about any problems you may be having with your vehicle, if any at all.

Starting and Charging System

Starting and charging system consists of a few main components. You have your starter which takes its power from the battery and engages to the flywheel and turns your car over. If you have a bad battery the starting system may not have enough power to turn your motor over so it’s important that you maintain this system so you’re not stranded somewhere or out in the cold. The Alternator runs power to the battery while your car is running. Stop in or call TGK Automotive today to schedule a charging system analysis.

Brake System

When you press on the brake pedal in your car, several things are going to happen. The force of your foot on the pedal is multiplied and converted to pressure; that pressure is transmitted through the system, and friction converts kinetic energy into heat. Then the vehicle slows or stops depending on the amount of force you apply. A complex sequence of events leads up to this.

Due to the complexity of the brake system, it’s important to have all components of the brake system in good working order. Let one of our trained technicians help to ensure your safety.

The fuel injection system is the system that supports and delivers the fuel to the engine. First we have the fuel pump which suppresses and pressurizes the fuel up to the fuel rail where the injectors are. The fuel pump is most commonly located in the fuel tank. The fuel rail and injectors are what delivers the fuel in a spray to each cylinder of the engine.

Transmission and Drive Train

Not moving anywhere or when you do it feels like your slipping? This could be a result of a transmission problem. We specialize in automotive and manual transmission repair and will find your exact problem and fix only what is necessary.

Tip: It’s very important that you change your Transmission filters and fluids on a regular basis. Every 30,000 to 50,000 miles is ideal. This cost of maintenance is very inexpensive compared to a new transmission or a rebuild of your current transmission.

Cooling System

The cooling system is made up of the passages inside the engine block and heads, a water pump to circulate the coolant, a thermostat to control the temperature of the coolant, a radiator to cool the coolant, a radiator cap to control the pressure in the system, and some plumbing consisting of interconnecting hoses to transfer the coolant from the engine to radiator and also to the car’s heater system where hot coolant is used to warm up the vehicle’s interior on a cold day.

A cooling system works by sending a liquid coolant through passages in the engine block and heads. As the coolant flows through these passages, it picks up heat from the engine. The heated fluid then makes its way through a rubber hose to the radiator in the front of the car. As it flows through the thin tubes in the radiator, the hot liquid is cooled by the air stream entering the engine compartment from the grill in front of the car. Once the fluid is cooled, it returns to the engine to absorb more heat. The water pump has the job of keeping the fluid moving through this system of plumbing and hidden passages.

Suspension System

The suspensions purpose is to provide a comfortable ride while maintaining proper vehicle tracking, directional stability, and to minimize tire wear.

The main components are springs, shock absorbers or struts and sway bars. First the springs, either the coil spring or the leaf spring, control the ride height of the vehicle. Then there are shocks or struts which absorb the road conditions and keep the tires on the road surface.
