Cooling System

Las Vegas Cooling System:…

SS454 Auto Repair in Las Vegas knows that once
a cooling system suffers long-term neglect, it turns into an on-going source of
problems. Once corrosion takes place, the damage is difficult to reverse.

Cooling system neglect is cited as a principal
reason for mechanical failure of a vehicle. In addition to the danger and
inconvenience of a breakdown, the damage to the engine and transmission can add
up to thousands of dollars. Discovering a leaking radiator, hose connection, a
sticking thermostat or other cooling system component that’s on “borrowed
time” can save the life of one’s engine. Additionally, overheating can
damage valve guides, scuff pistons, crask cylinder heads, and crush head gaskets.

What We Do:

According to AAA, cooling system failures are
one of the leading causes of vehicle break-downs on the highway. Yet most of
these breakdowns can be prevented by the following preventative maintenance and
repairs that are available at SS454 Auto Repair in Las Vegas:

Brake Service

Las Vegas Brake Service:…

When it comes to your car’s safety, brakes top
the list of systems that need monitoring. However, many people are unaware of
the signs that indicate a car’s brakes may need maintenance or repair.

For routine maintenance, it’s important to
check the vehicle’s braking system at least once a year. A thorough inspection
should include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, condition
of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the
car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems. It is
also important to be alert and recognize the danger signs of brake problems.
Other warning signs include an illuminated brake warning light, brake grabbing,
low pedal feel, vibration, hard pedal feel and squealing.

Although a squealing noise is the number one
indicator that something is wrong, if the car pulls left or right when braking,
or if the front end shakes, those are both signs of excessive brake wear. If
the brake pedal begins to feel spongy, it could be a sign that air has entered
the brake system or fluid is low.

What We Do:

1. S454 Auto Repair in Las Vegas recommends the wheels should be pulled and brakes checked

2. An inspection includes inspection of the rotors, calipers, drums, pads, pistons and brake lines

3. We recommend that your brake system should be flushed and brake fluid replaced every two years

Battery Service


Las Vegas Battery Service:….
Summer is the season for major car-battery problems. Heat, not cold, shortens battery life, says SS454 Auto Repair in Las Vegas. Excessive heat and overcharging are thus the main reasons for shortened battery life. Heat causes battery fluid to evaporate, thus damaging the internal structure of the battery. A malfunctioning component in the charging system, usually the voltage regulator, allows too high a charging rate. That’s slow death for a battery. SS454 Auto Repair in Las Vegas uses only quality batteries.
What We Do
At SS454 Auto Repair in Las Vegas, we visually inspect the following:
1. We clean your battery using a battery cleaner
2. We then thoroughly inspect your battery
3. We apply a leak detector to check for leaks or deterioration
4. We install anti-corrosion BG Battery Terminal protectors
5. Battery posts, terminals and case are sealed
6. In severe cases we may replace the terminal
