The motor medics at Southern Maine Motors restore rides to peak condition with oil and filter changes and ensure continued automotive health by administering thorough inspections. In 20 to 30 minutes, vehicle virtuosos lube up pumping pistons and replenish sapped motor-oil reserves, reducing friction and heat, which can grind away critical engine parts over time. A fresh fuel filter screens out potential foreign objects lurking in the gas tank, such as dirt, flecks of rust, and the Blarney Stone. A certified technician then inspects the car meticulously, ensuring that everything from the drive shaft to the wiper blades meets the State of Maine's stringent safety standards. Drivers receive a full printout of the evaluation in order to help them better understand their car's particular issues, such as uneven wear on tire treads or a crippling fear of clowns.
