Jet Chevrolet’s team of ASE-certified mechanics keeps engines purring prettily with services including preventive oil changes, tire rotations, and diagnostic checks. Each oil-change appointment begins with an exacting 27-point inspection, which tests cars for mechanical troubles, latent problems, and the ability to count to 27. Technicians sift up to 6 quarts of fresh standard oil through a newly installed filter to lubricate delicate moving parts and keep contaminants at bay. A new pair of wiper blades and an Accuvision windshield treatment help fling water out of lines of sight on rainy days. Techs also check and set tire pressure, and rotate rubbers according to amount of wear, manufacturer’s specifications, or callers’ insistence upon a do-si-do.
The littlest things can make all the difference, especially in the world of auto detailing. Harsh soaps and shampoos, even the wrong type of towel or brush, can destroy a car’s paint, strip it of its wax, or create unsightly swirls and chalky crime-scene outlines of dead bugs. Since 1978, Jim’s Detail Shop has given customers peace of mind by using the safest wash products and accessories available during its detailing packages. And the team doesn’t just hand wash, wax, and dress exteriors; they also sweep insides with vacuum cleaners and carpet shampooers, and thwart UV rays with window tinting, backed by a lifetime warranty.
Whether repairing transmissions, clutches, or brakes, Auburn Transmissions & Auto Repairs’ mechanics use their combined 20 years of experience to diagnose auto ailments. In addition to repairs, they also offer life-extending maintenance services, such as oil changes, tune-ups, and inspections.
Junk King’s red trucks travel to houses around the country to clear homes of clutter while maintaining environmentally safe practices. Friendly haulers give customers a call when they're en route, then cart away anything except hazardous materials, including garden clippings, outmoded furnishings, and cursed Cadillac trunks. The refuse rangers sort through everything they take away, donating what they can to charity, recycling what they can’t, and even sweeping up when the job is done. So far, Junk King has saved 908 tons from entering landfills by striving to recycle more than 60% of what they collect. All appointments are scheduled within two-hour time frames, often with same- or next-day service.
Larson Nissan of Fife's ASE-certified technicians keep automobiles' innards running as smoothly as they look on the outside after a grime-exorcising car wash. During the full-service oil change, car whisperers drain vehicles' soiled oil and fill engines with up to 5 quarts of standard motor oil. The thorough hand car wash frees automobile countenances of dirt and smudges, giving horseless chariots a fresh-out-the-factory look, ideal for a night on the town or donuts on the steps of the Supreme Court building. While steel steeds are calibrated and pampered for 30–45 minutes, customers can use the free WiFi to surf the Internet or hop aboard the complimentary shuttle.
The automotive remix at the Puyallup dealership begins as the car-cleaning experts harness the soothing power of steam to thoroughly flush your hard-worked engine, carpets, seats, and headliner clean of dirt, dust, and doughnut crumbs. While a specially trained machine buffs the car's exterior, the clean team will swipe and wipe your auto's interior surfaces, including vinyl and leather. During this time, door jambs are degunked, the trunk is cleansed (including a steam cleaning of soiled carpets, if needed), and tires are scrubbed until they are the brightest shade of black. The total-body workout winds down with a waxing of your auto's exterior and a sepia-toned snapshot of the beautified buggy for scrapbooking posterity.
