Complete vehicle inspection
The purpose of a complete vehicle inspection is that you know what repairs to expect, and when to expect them, further down the road. Nobody likes surprises when it comes to your car needing service or repairs. Once you know what to expect, you can plan for much better.
Cars are so much more advanced and sophisticated than they used to be, and because of that they require more maintenance and service to keep them operating properly. Although most car owners can tell you when the car is due for an oil change, they don’t know much past that when it comes to what other services are due.
Cars are so expensive to purchase nowadays. So, you want to get the most life out of them that you can. And the only way to do that is with proper maintenance. Wouldn’t it be nice to know what service or repairs your car will need a year or even two years in advance of when they’ll be needed?
We take pride in performing the highest quality repairs and services, and that’s no different when it comes to brakes. We use the highest quality parts available, and we use the latest technology in machinating brake rotors. By using the latest technology for machining rotors, we eliminate the possibility of pulsation or vibration that leads to brake noise and that unsafe feeling in the pedal while braking. Most shops don’t have this equipment and capability, but we do. You know the brakes are important, perhaps the most important part of the car. So, we don’t see a reason to use anything other than the best for your car.
On-Board Computer diagnostics
When we use the slogan, “getting your car repaired right the first time,” it’s computer diagnostics that jump out in our minds. We are fully equipped with the latest and most advanced, state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. Our staff has had extensive and continuous advanced training in computer diagnostics.
Did you know that more than just the engine is computer controlled? Transmissions, Air Conditioning, Suspension, Windows, Lighting, Radio, Dashboard, Body Controls, and more are all computer controlled. We are trained and equipped to handle all of these.
pre•ven•tive/ adjective – 1. designed to keep something undesirable such as illness, harm, or accidents from occurring. “preventive medicine”
main•te•nanceˈmānt(ə)nəns,ˈmāntn-əns/ Noun – 1. the process of maintaining or preserving someone or something, or the state of being maintained.
Preventive maintenance is simple being proactive and having scheduled work done on your car to avoid costly repairs later on. When you bring your car in for an oil change, that is preventive maintenance. You’re greatly reducing the risk of having engine damage later on. The cost of an oil change is minimal compared to the thousands of dollars of cost required to replace the car’s engine. This is just a basic example of preventive maintenance that you can relate to. Today’s cars are so advanced and built with precision that they require even more PM (preventive maintenance) than ever before. There is a schedule of PM for every car. If you follow that schedule, you’re increasing the time and mileage the car will last.
As our mission is to provide Chicago and the surrounding areas with a place that takes care of all their vehicles needs, we also provide oil changes. We additionally offer a complementary vehicle inspection with your oil change because we care about your safety.
We are here for any kind of trouble with your car or truck. We know your vehicle breaking down can be frustrating and even worse, it can leave you stranded. So we provide the best service we can to make you feel at ease during such a time. If you ever need emergency vehicle service, call us. We provide towing in addition to repairing your vehicle. You can relax and let us take care of it all.
We have exceptional diagnostic capabilities at Ek Automotive. Not only do we use the latest technology and state-of-the-art equipment, our certified technicians review areas of your vehicle's engine that may not be covered by a computer system. If your check engine light is on, we'll find out why and make sure your running conditions are safe and sound.
Emission System Repairs
In addition to reducing noise, your car's exhaust system keeps harmful emissions from entering the atmosphere. Starting at the front of your vehicle, exhaust manifolds collect exhaust gases, which then move through the exhaust system, where they're analyzed by oxygen sensors, refined by the catalytic convertor, and before they leave your vehicle, muffled by the muffler. If any one of these components fail, everything from your mileage to the environment at large can be affected. Technicians at Ek Automotive can troubleshoot and fix any emission system issues you're experiencing.
