More on Our Auto Service Specialties

  • Auto A/C Work

    Auto A/C Work

    Your auto A/C provides you with a comfortable ride come summer and helps prevent driver fatigue. It’s also true that if your A/C isn’t working properly, you’ll not only be sweating, you could be damaging additional air conditioning system components. For example, an auto A/C system operating on low refrigerant due to a leak will eventually damage the compressor, which is much more expensive to fix than sealing the original leak and refilling the refrigerant. Trust us to handle auto A/C work correctly and efficiently.


  • Brake Repair & Service

    Brake Repair & Service

    You must be able to rely on your car’s brakes to give you maximum stopping power when you need it, so if you’re experiencing any signs of a brake problem, such as brake squealing, grinding, or slow braking response time, it’s time for a brake inspection, and probably a brake repair. If you come to us ASAP, it’s likely the repair will be simpler and less expensive than if you wait and allow a small issue to damage other brake system components. Our mechanics are brake experts, trained to precisely service and repair all brake systems.


  • Check Engine Light

    Check Engine Light

    If your check engine light is on, or you’re experiencing any type of drivability issues, your next step should be to seek out an auto diagnostic service. Auto diagnostics allow our technicians to gather helpful information about the operating condition of your vehicle and determine the extent of auto repairs you need. Basically, answering the questions: “why is my check engine light on?” and “what’s wrong with my car?” Our mechanics are skilled diagnosticians who can pinpoint the issue(s) causing your check engine light.


  • Scheduled Maintenance

    Scheduled Maintenance

    At Nick’s Auto Care, we emphasize scheduled maintenance as the smart way to ensure your vehicle is safe and reliable. Rather than wait until your car has an issue, we encourage you to stop by regularly, so our mechanics can prevent problems before they happen. By being proactive with your scheduled maintenance, instead of reactive with auto repairs when something fails or malfunctions, we can help you save time, money, and stress. We do all we can to make scheduled maintenance convenient and budget friendly.



  • Timing Belt Replacement

    Timing Belt Replacement

    The timing belt has a significant job to do in your car’s engine—it keeps everything moving at the right time, ensuring your engine gets what it needs, when it needs it. In fact, the timing belt is so important that a worn timing belt can damage your vehicle’s engine, and if your timing belt breaks, your car will break down. With the timing belt’s critical function, we recommend timing belt replacement as a preventive maintenance service, and if you’re unsure how old your timing belt is, we can inspect your timing belt for signs of wear.


  • Tune-ups

    Tune-ups

    When your vehicle is properly tuned, the computer system, fuel system, ignition system, and emission system are all working together in perfect harmony. When they are not, your vehicle needs a tune-up. As part of a tune-up with Nick’s Auto Care, we’ll check your battery voltage, power balance, engine vacuum, idle speed, and your ignition timing. In addition to these performance checks, we’ll inspect your belts, hoses, and fluids. Then for preventive maintenance, we’ll replace your spark plus (if required), as well as filters and fluids as necessary.
