Air Conditioning

What is this?
Your car’s heating, ventilating and air conditioning system (HVAC) keeps your car interior comfortable in any season by providing the right temperature and humidity level. The HVAC system also helps improve defroster operation.

Why this service?
Proper heating and cooling performance is critical for interior comfort and for safety reasons such as defrosting. The HVAC system will work as designed when you need it if you perform this service.

What we do at Dan’s Superior 
1) A thorough inspection of your car’s HVAC system (should be performed annually).
2) Dan’s service technician checks pressures to test operation, refrigerant charge and outlet temperatures.
3) If the system is found to be low on refrigerant, a leak test is
performed to find the source of the leak. Refrigerant may
 be added if necessary.
4) The technician may also check for evidence of refrigerant cross-contamination, which is the mixing of refrigerants.
5 ) Check of the compressor’s drive belt and tension. 

Brakes

What is this?
The brake system is your car’s most important safety system. Never put off routine brake inspections or any needed repair so that your car can continue to operate as designed.

Why this service?
Brakes are a normal wear item for any car. Eventually, they’re going to need to be replaced for both performance and safety reasons. Planning can also save you money-your brakes won’t get to the “metal-to-metal” point, which usually means accelerating expensive rotor or drum replacement.Your car might require periodic flushing and filling of the brake hydraulic system. Contaminated brake fluid may lead to erosion and other problems in the hydraulic system, especially on cars with antilock brakes (ABS).

What we do at Dan’s Superior
Brake linings, drums and rotors, and brake fluid inspected.
Brake pad and/or shoe replacement, along with related hardware. Depending on the condition or thickness of the drums or rotors, machining or replacement may be necessary.
Parking brake inspection for proper operation and adjustment. In some cases, the parking brake shoes/pads may need replacement. 

Alignment

What is this?
Maintaining your car’s wheel alignment reduces tire wear, improves fuel economy and handling, and increases driving enjoyment and safety. 

Why this service?
Normal wear and road conditions can take their toll on your car’s steering and suspension system, possibly throwing the alignment settings out of specifications. Ball joints, tie rods, steering arms, bushings and other suspension parts all wear gradually over time. Springs wil gradually sag and age as miles accumulate. All of these will affect alignment angles and adjustments need to be made or components need to be replaced to restore optimum handling.

What we do at Dan’s Superior
Check car’s alignment (should be at least annually.
Adjustments to the camber, caster, toe and thrust angle, if needed.
Have the alignment checked at the first sign of abnormal tire wear or improper vehicle handling 

Oil Change

What is this?

Critical parts of your engine are lubricated, cleaned and cooled by your car’s oil and filter. Other specifically formulated fluids are used for the operation and protection of systems and components such as brakes, cooling, power steering, automatic and manual transmissions, and transfer cases. Your car may also be equipped with a variety of filters including those for the transmission, fuel system and interior ventilation.

Why this service?

Periodic oil and filter changes help keep your engine clean on the inside. Dust, metallic shavings, condensation and even antifreeze can contaminate motor oil. Additives, which break down over time, are also subject to contamination.

Other fluids in your vehicle may require periodic replacement. For example, the majority of automatic transmission failures are heat-related, and automatic transmission fluid breaks down rapidly when subjected to high temperatures. Your car owner’s manual may specify periodic flushing and filling of the brake hydraulic system because contaminated brake fluid may lead to erosion and other problems in the hydraulic system, especially on vehicles with antilock brakes (A6S). 

What we do at Dan’s Superior
Oil and filter replacement (should be done every 3,000 miles or three months).
Vehicle-specific fluids replacement: automatic transmissions, brakes, power steering and axles.
Coolant replacement (should be changed every two years or 24,000 miles). 

Tune Up

What is this?

A proper and routine tune-up allows your engine to work hand-in-hand with the rest of your car’s powertrain. This is how optimum car performance is achieved. 

Why this service?

A well-tuned engine delivers the best balance of power and fuel economy and produces the lowest level of emissions. Modern engines compensate forworn parts to a degree, giving you the sense that everything is fine with your car. A routine tune-up will restore your car to its normal operating state, and contribute to the overall efficiency of the engine and emissions system.

What we do at Dan’s Superior
Spark plug replacement.
Replacement of any other ignition system and/or emissions system parts that may be needed or recommended.
Fuel and air filters replacement
Onboard computer control system isnspection.
