Vehicles parade through Miller Place Star Wash & Fast Lube Center's wash tunnels seven days a week for a cleaning, or stretch out on a service bay and allow a trained technician to replenish their reserves of component fluids. Wash and detail packages come with myriad treatments, including Teflon–fortified sealant and paste wax that give cars the confidence to overcome mid-odometer crises. Standard and synthetic motor oils twirl through funnels and into cars to settle the friction between dry parts. Miller Place Star Wash uses biodegradable cleaning products, and instead of discarding their old oil, they recycle it into energy that heats and powers the building and its resident transformer.
Cranbury Service Station keeps autos rolling smoothly through a litany of necessary maintenance services. During a standard oil change, the station's certified automotive ameliorators replace old, worn-out oil with fresh-faced young fluid, straight from lubricant college and ready to take on the heat, dust, and high-stress pressures of today's high-octane internal combustion world. To help new oil adjust to its job of safeguarding precious moving parts, gaskets, and various shafts, a fresh oil filter is included. After tires are rotated to ensure even wear, the mechanics at Cranbury Service Station perform a meticulous safety inspection, checking fluids, tire pressure, lights, and more. The roughly 90-minute service keeps cars of all makes and models careening headlong down the highway as smoothly as an ice statue down a freshly greased bowling alley.
The ASE–certified technicians at King Bear Auto Service Center of Lindenhurst top off fluids and change oil to tweak street schooners until they sail smoothly. The specialist starts the revitalizing package by spoon-feeding the auto with up to five quarts of 10W-30 oil, replacing its filter, and shielding it from being stuck with outdated political bumper stickers. The automotive medics then carefully top off all fluids and lubricate the rusty joints, hinges, and suspension. Next, your car opens wide for an in-depth 27-point inspection, where the belts, hoses, and cooling system spread their arms for a functionality test. Tires are checked for safety, and the exhaust system relaxes with a Swedish massage. Technicians then test interior and exterior lights for consistency, and a tire rotation ensures even wear among the four wheels. With a three-pass punch card, drivers can trick travel-weary cars into three checkups by persuading them they're going to the parking lot to mock speed bumps. In addition to any waiting time, each service takes approximately two hours.
The Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box oil filter and up to 5 quarts of motor oil, plus a comprehensive lineup of other vehicle-maintenance checkups, an exterior window wash, and interior floor vacuum. Trained technicians entreat cars to say "Ahh," before quenching automotive thirst with a refill of transmission, differential, transfer-case, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids. A detailed inspection enforces the well-behaved manners of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights. By evenly distributing the weight across each tire, a fresh tire rotation helps to minimize wear and tear, maximize traction, and avoid the need to conceal balding tires with cumbersome toupees. Though Heartland Automotive Services Jiffy Lube sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
