Routine preventive maintenance is the best way to avoid serious breakdowns and the most expensive automotive repairs. For example, regular oil changes are a great way to keep your vehicle on the road and the engine running smoothly. Here at Prize Auto Service we provide a fast oil change service, as well as a free inspection of your vehicle’s tire pressure, windshield wipers, brake condition, lighting, drive belts, AC belts, leaks, fluids, hoses, exhaust, and transmission. Whether you have a car, truck, or SUV, we provide the maintenance services to keep it running well.
You don't have to be a certified mechanic to know working brakes are essential for your safety. Whether you’re creeping in rush hour traffic, escaping the city, or motoring around town, our ASE certified technicians want to make sure your brakes are in good condition, so that you can depend on them. At Prize Auto Service, we can quickly check the condition of your brake pads, drums, struts, brake lines, brake fluids, rotors, shoes, and every other part of your vehicle's braking system.
Stop and go driving, hot weather driving, rocking a vehicle in snow or mud, or boat or RV towing? All of these driving conditions create problems for the second most expensive mechanical component of today's vehicles—the transmission. If your vehicle is subjected to any or all of these conditions or if your transmission fluid is losing its pink or red color, a transmission check should be high on your list of preventative maintenance. If you do have a major transmission problem, our skilled mechanics have the training and expertise to do a rebuild, saving you the cost of a transmission replacement.
Is your check engine light on? It may not be anything too costly or difficult to solve, but it’s important not to ignore it. The check engine light is a great warning to prevent more costly problems or even being stranded on the side of the road. Often a simple adjustment can be made to improve the health of your vehicle, and if you do need a major repair, we can handle that as well, always taking into consideration your budget and vehicle need. We are simply your family auto repair shop in Alexandria. Our oil change is one of the lowest in Alexandria, VA.
Automotive electrical systems are very complex and constantly evolving. Our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair your vehicle’s electrical system, including circuits, fuses, wires, sensors, relays, and connectors, as well as your starting and charging systems. Call us here at Prize Auto Service if you’re experiencing dim headlights, malfunctioning signal lights, power window issues, or any other electrical problems.
The timing belt is very important to the working condition of your vehicle, as it is responsible for the opening and closing of the intake and exhaust valves inside the engine at the right time. Without one, your vehicle would not be able to start. Each vehicle manufacturer has a mileage interval stating when the timing belt should be replaced. After a certain amount of miles, your timing belt will begin to wear down and crack. A worn timing belt can damage your vehicle’s engine, so don’t hesitate to come by Prize Auto Service if you’re due for maintenance.
