Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box filter; a checking and filling of transmission, differential, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights.
Ray Lapointe stormed onto the auto industry scene in 1949 and was setting his own hours by 1965 when he founded Ray's Auto Service. Today, Ray's son and current owner, Mark, maintains and mends roadsters alongside a team of fellow ASE-certified technicians. Together, they perform restorative services, flushing sullied oil or transmission fluid and refreshing cooling systems with a draught of eco-friendly refrigerant, while shuttles or rental cars ferry patrons home or to the mall. When motors display disruptive behaviors, such as stalling or purring provocatively at semi trucks, the staff entrusts mechanical diagnoses to the computerized MODIS. The system poses a triple-pronged threat to vehicular maladies, using a lab ignition scope, digital volt ohm meter, and low- and high-amp current probes to record and analyze the electrical wavelengths that animate motors.
For more than 20 years, Willards’ ASE-certified mechanics have kept cars on Massachusetts roads with a full list of maintenance, repair, and diagnostic services backed by a 12-month, 10,000-mile warranty. The crew cares for most American and foreign vehicles, and it’s always willing to explain procedures in terms clients can understand, instead of in engine sounds. While mechanics work on their cars, clients can hitch a free ride to any location within 10 miles of the shop.
