Wheel alignment is preventative maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. A wheel alignment is a complex service and does require the right tools and knowledge to do correctly. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Oswald Service and Repair.
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking.. At Oswald Service and Repair, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your brake system- keeping you safe.
Brakes are necessary to your safety on the road. You need them in order to slow down or stop accurately. As soon as you suspect a brake issue, it is important to have your vehicle inspected and your brakes serviced. Brake experts at Oswald Service and Repair can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.
Brake System Flush
Brake fluid is hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture). The absorbed moisture lowers the fluid's boiling point. It also corrodes the lines and cylinders. Your brakes could severely lose power and the ability to accurately brake when the brake fluid boiling point is lowered, which can happen in heavy braking.
The solution to this problem is called a brake flush, which consists of our mechanics replacing the oil brake fluid with fresh fluid. With Oswald Service and Repair, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 208-522-1566 in Idaho Falls or 208-356-7777 in Rexburg or visit either of our two locations of Oswald Service and Repair today.
An important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When your vehicle turns, the outer wheels go a farther distance than the inside wheels, as well as the front wheels versus the back wheels. Because of this, all four of your vehicle’s wheels travel at different speeds which is where the differential comes in. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked periodically. Contact Oswald Service and Repair today for differential servicing.
A bad exhaust system can not only be extremely loud, but it's essential to ensure that your car meets environmental regulations and so that you are safe in the cabin of your vehicle. Oswald Service and Repair has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.
A driveline is a part of your vehicle that connects the transmission to the axles. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the axles. The driveline should be serviced and inspected at our shop regularly to prevent issues from occurring. At Oswald Service and Repair, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
Shocks are designed to smooth out rough roads. When your shocks do their job, they will reduce how your car reacts to driving over bumps and rough roads, making your car ride smooth and manageable. When shocks develop problems, driving on rough roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit Oswald Service and Repair today.
Much like a shock absorber, your car's struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road's surface. Good struts will prevent you from having to sit through a very uncomfortable and bumpy ride. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. This is because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually wear out over time. Call Oswald Service and Repair at 208-522-1566 in Idaho Falls or 208-356-7777 in Rexburg if you have questions about the struts on your car. Our ASE certified technicians will make sure that your vehicle is always repaired correctly and stay informed about what your vehicle needs.
