In business for more than 60 years, Little Garage revives exhausted cars and encourages them to continue pursuing the great American drive. The shop’s professional mechanics will first perform an oil change, with up to 5 quarts of fresh conventional oil and a new filter replacing each car's befouled fluids. They’ll also use their bunker-piercing vision to check all fluid levels, and lube up the chassis to make it easier to slip past trucks on narrow roads. A comprehensive state emission test and safety inspection follows, in which lights, brakes, belts, hoses, and landing gear are accounted for, ensuring that four-wheeled rovers are certified street legal for upcoming drag races and trips to the hammock store. To encourage wear and tear to distribute themselves evenly across tire surfaces, the Little Garage team will also rotate all four tires.
In Utah, motorists must regularly test their vehicles' emissions, a process that the ASE-certified car experts at State Radiator & Automotive of Utah make easy. They check over vehicles' inner workings to ensure they don't emit excess pollutants and contribute to smog, fulfilling the DMV's requirements for registration. Of course, cars can have more issues than problems with emissions and intolerance of loud chewers, and to that end the techs also fix mufflers and specialize in servicing heating and cooling systems.
