Preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure your vehicle stays reliable, and lets you avoid major repairs as well as the expenses that come with them. At Tim's Automotive Repair and Sales, we provide a complete preventative maintenance program, and carry all the necessary parts and expertise to take care of the little jobs that let you avoid the big ones. Choose from a comprehensive range of the fluids, oils, filters, and belts that your vehicle needs to keep running happily and healthily. Relax while your ride is inspected by our highly-trained technicians, and rest assured that it'll keep running smoothly for miles and miles.
The first part of our preventative maintenance program deals with your vehicle's fluids. Your car needs these fluids to keep running smoothly and prevent overheating. Most of our fluid change services are completed quickly so you can get back on the road in Clackamas, OR. Our technicians are happy to monitor and refill your engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, brake fluid, anti-freeze, power steering and wiper fluids. We also perform checks on your radiator to ensure there are no small leaks caused by stones and other road debris.
The next area of our program deals with the filters in your car. Whether filtering oil, fuel, or air, your car's engine and drivetrain rely on pure ingredients free from power-robbing particles. Your vehicle's fuel system, for example, wants only the purest gasoline or diesel. When microscopic particles build up in the system over time they reduce its efficiency and cause issues like decreased gas mileage. The same goes for your engine's air filter. An engine needs a mix of fuel and air to create combustion, and that can't happen if your motor can't breathe. Regularly changing your car's filters will prevent this from occurring. Tim's Automotive Repair and Sales will make sure all your car's filters are flowing smoothly and clear, as well as the often-overlooked cabin air filter which can make a huge difference in how pleasant a car is to be inside.
Tire balancing is an important area of preventative maintenance where we excel. If your car's tires are out of balance, they could be putting undue strain on components in the suspension, braking, and drivetrain systems, which can cost you greatly further down the road. Ensuring a smooth ride with professionally balanced wheels and tires is a much cheaper, easier, and safer way to make sure your car stays on the road, while ensuring a long life for your tires.
Your car's timing belts are extremely important to examine during the course of preventative maintenance. There are a number of events that need to take place for one full revolution of your car's engine. These belts ensure that they all line up with each other, and occur at exactly the right moment. Should the belts become damaged or break, the events can fall out of sync and happen at the wrong time, which can be seriously detrimental to the health of your engine and your car overall. Tim's Automotive Repair and Sales ensures that all your car's belts are healthy, and that all of those events keep happening at exactly the right time.
If you want Tim's Automotive Repair and Sales to make sure that your vehicle is well-equipped to continue transporting you safely for years to come, call us at 503-656-0600, or visit us in Clackamas, OR so we can schedule a time to take a look at it!
This has been my inlaws family's mechanic for years and through their recommendation I took my vehicle to them. I had a good experience with this company taking my vehicle to them. They have fair and competitive pricing for their services. We worked out a plan to address upcoming maintenance done on my vehicle. Without going into much detail they were very honest with me, I commend them for their honesty. Marty and Kim up front were great to work with. I highly recommend anyone to bring their vehicle to them. I will be using their services in the future.
Friendly, professional, fair price. Car was ready exactly when they said it would be. I will definitely be returning. Thank you!
I have had the best experience I could've asked for. They have made sure all of my expenses have been covered by insurance. I was hit head on by a cop, when you get hit by the city they make you pay up front and they reimburse you. For the first month I had a rental car from enterprise and insurance stuck me with a $600 bill on top of what they covered so I got rid of my rental and went with a rental from Tim's its not a 2019 but it is completely covered by Tim's and is a reliable car that has gotten me to and from work and all my errands. With all of the work done to my car insurance should have totaled it but I can't even tell my car was in a accident. Through out this whole endeavor I have felt like Tim's had my best interest at heart and didn't let insurance make me go with used parts like they were telling me I had to go with when I was going to go with the "preferred shop" they told me to go with.
I have been doing business with Tim's Auto for the last 10 years. I have a Construction company with as many as 6 trucks and 3 trailers called Douglas Construction. Tim has been doing the Maintenance and repairs on all my trucks and trailers as well as my personal vehicles for the last 10 years. The service is excellent and in most all cases Tim goes and picks up my trucks if they broke down in the field. I am totally confident in there Mechanics and there ability to keep my vehicles driving safely. I and my friends have also bought vehicles from Tim's, and even picked them out at auctions, through Tim's Auto. Tim himself has become a friend as well as a business associate over the years. Personally I wouldn't Take my vehicles any where else.
It's a pleasure to have your car serviced by honest and knowledgeable mechanics who stand behind their work. I feel great having these guys as my service techs!
Great guys, they go out of their way to be helpful.
Been a customer of Tim's for over 20 years. Buy my cars here and would not consider going anywhere else for tires, tune-ups, oil changes, body work or anything else to do with my car.
Always great service. They stand behind the work they do, haven't had any problems in the 15 years plus years I have been having my vehicles repaired there.
