ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance. It also impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine. Trust the experts at 4th Street Auto Care to help you protect your investment. Call us at 248-543-2262 or visit our shop in Royal Oak 48067-2705.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 248-543-2262 or visit 4th Street Auto Care today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit 4th Street Auto Care today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit 4th Street Auto Care in Royal Oak, MI 48067-2705. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At 4th Street Auto Care, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 248-543-2262 or visit 4th Street Auto Care today.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to 4th Street Auto Care in Royal Oak, MI 48067-2705.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At 4th Street Auto Care, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 248-543-2262 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Sick of the dealership kicking us around, we brought our car in to figure out what was wrong with it. They were extremely quick to identify the problems and very honest in their recommendations. Will certainly be bringing our cars back for future work/diagnosis.

This is not only a top notch auto shop, they are incredibly kind, honest and fair. They do excellent work! If they feel someone else will be able to perform a better, more cost efficient service, they will send you to one of their trusted associates. They sent me to just such a place for some muffler work, and it was fantastic. I highly recommend 4th Street Auto Care Center.

I have been taking my cars here for years and have never had any issues. They do quality work and are honest about what needs to be done, and do it at a fair price. When Vinsetta Garage closed on Woodward, the owner recommended his customers to take their business to 4th Street, and that should tell you a lot.
