Engine Service & Repair

Engine Repair and Maintenance Services in New Berlin, WI

The starter motor in your car cranks your engine over so it can operate under its own power. Cold weather during a frigid Wisconsin winter can damage the contacts in the starter motor, preventing your car from starting.

Alternators, in conjunction with the battery and voltage regulator, works as the electrical controller of your car, truck, or vehicle. The alternator transfers mechanical energy into electrical energy to power your vehicle’s accessories.

Your vehicle's radiator works to keep the engine from overheating. Coolant absorbs the heat from the engine and passes it through the radiator where it is cooled off and circulated back through the engine.

A timing belt is a toothed belt running from your engine’s camshaft to the crankshaft. The timing belt’s job is to keep those two shafts running in sync. Timing belts and chains require service so seldom it can be easy to forget. Unfortunately, waiting too long for timing belt or timing chain service can result in a car that won’t run or worse, a destroyed engine.

  • Engine Drive Belts

Engine drive belts—such as the ones your car uses for air conditioning, power steering, and alternator function—should be checked for cracks and glazing every 3 months or every 5,000 miles, and should be replaced as needed.

Axels are an essential component to your car's structure and design. If broken or in need of maintenance, you should never hesitate or ignore an axle in need of service--it can lead to extensive damage to other parts of your car.

Mufflers, tailpipes, etc. Faulty exhaust parts can cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide cannot be seen, tasted or smelled. A faulty exhaust system can cause drowsiness and even death. Ravenswood Auto installs quality-lifetime warranty mufflers and in some cases an economy 1-year warranty muffler, if available.

These parts stabilize the vehicle while driving, especially in sharp turns and cornering. Adds to your driving comfort and vehicle control. Also increases tire longevity.

Parts such as the steering gear (rack and pinion), idler arm, ball joints, and drive axles are important normal wearing parts. They should be inspected at regular intervals and replaced as necessary. Ravenswood Auto installs lifetime, nationwide warranty replacement-parts.

Any unusual noises or sensations when the brake pedal is applied warrant immediate attention. Ravenswood Auto uses lifetime warranty brake parts. Good brakes start at Ravenswood Auto and stop elsewhere!

    Oil Change

    Recommended frequency of oil change varies based on driving habits, vehicle make/model/year, city vs country driving, and more. It is highly recommended to get your oil filter changed at the same time you change your oil. The oil filter's job is to catch debris, dirt, metal fragments and more to keep your oil clean and engine running smoothly.
