The ASE-certified technicians at Meineke Car Care Center fine-tune the innards of cars from all major brands. The shop’s computer-diagnostic technology helps the team’s official inspectors to sweep engines for abnormalities, and techs swap in top-notch parts for failing cogs. The team flushes sullied oil and replaces it with fresh draughts of regular or conventional oil, or tweak air-conditioning systems to keep indoor climates cooler than a yeti’s walk-in freezer. The shop accommodates busy patrons with 24-hour car drop-off and rental roadsters available when vehicles are out of commission.
At Mobil 1 Lube Express, a troop of trained technicians replaces old oil with up to 5 quarts of new fluid, screwing in a brand-new filter to match. Then, they'll put on their safety caps and perform an inspection—which includes checking fluids, lights, belts, and tires—before turning steering wheels left and asking tailpipes to cough twice. Cleaners equipped with smudge-eradicating suds and dust-hungry vacuums move in next, targeting grime and fingerprint mosaics with a full-service wash and hand dry, vacuuming interiors, and applying Rain-X and triple-foam protectants for extra defense against the elements. An application of rust inhibitor protects metallic veneers from corrosion, and a coating of Bugg Off affords rides a layer of defense against clingy insects and children wearing trendy magnetic vests. Specialists will also blast away crud from carriage underbellies and decorate wheels and tires with sprays of Wheel Brite and a tire shine.
Express Care Quick Lube’s staff of trained mechanics pampers horseless carriages with an array of maintenance and repair services. Whet your thirsty motor's appetite with the full-service oil change, which includes up to five quarts of 10w30 or 5w30 oil, as well as a check and top-off of power-steering, transmission, transaxle, battery, window-washer, radiator, and differential fluids (brake fluid will be checked but not topped off). To complete the comprehensive auto physical, the skilled engine doctors will also replace your oil filter, lubricate the vehicle's chassis, and ensure proper inflation of the wheels. Each vehicle will receive a fuel-system additive, a separate service that cleans road dust and other contaminants out of the air-intake manifold to improve the auto's mileage, performance, and emotional well-being. And because every car deserves to look just as good as it feels, customers will be provided with four "The Works" touchless washes that lather, wash, polish, and seal vehicular exteriors. New wipers up to 24 inches will then be installed to ensure sparkling windshields remain free of flying debris, bug splatters, and carelessly flung cups of chili.
Between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. any day of the week, Lone Star Pass holders can unwind to the rubba-dub-dub of a drive-thru car wash's automated scrubbers at any one of Texas Shine Car Wash's 6 locations. Upon emerging, the wheelmobiles of those who opted for the Ultimate Shine option additionally will be towel dried and have their tires dressed to ensure ultimate-extreme shine.
With a little help, the body can heal itself. This is one of the central tenets of Dr. Marcus Wilcox's treatment philosophy, and he uses chiropractic care to provide that helping hand. His adjustments specifically deal with musculoskeletal health, though they also promote neurological function by aligning the spinal column. When blockages and misaligned vertebrae don't impair the nervous system, chiropractic theory claims, the body can more effectively overcome wear and tear, better digest oxygen, and allow patients to live more comfortable lives.
Massage can be an important part of maintaining this healthy lifestyle, and Back In Alignment Chiropractic has the goods: pain- and stress-management treatments customized to each patient. Focused on easing tension in muscles and connective tissues, these therapeutic sessions can include deep-tissue pressure, myofascial release, and heated basalt stones—depending on the client's particular needs and whether or not they are actually a snowman posing as a human.
