Crown - Pit Crew Tires, Fuel, and Service’s father-and-son team of Richard and Ricky King helms a staff of full-service mechanics that draws on more than 60 combined years of automotive-repair experience to inspect and improve automobiles. In tandem with a transfusion of up to 5 quarts of fresh, pure oil, mechanics inspect each car’s brakes, CV joints, and shocks. To replenish the vehicle’s circulatory system, technicians top off all fluids for the transmission, windshield washers, and hood-mounted super soakers. Along each auto’s axles, tires swap places to share the heavy lifting and impede the occurrence of unevenness with regard to tire wear. In total, services usually take approximately 30 minutes, the same time it takes a car to pick out its favorite scheduled maintenance sticker.
