How do you know if your vehicle needs some care from R&L Automotive?

There are several important reasons why you should have your vehicle checked on regularly. The first, and perhaps most obvious, reason to have your vehicle checked is for the safety of you and your passengers. Making sure that all key components of your vehicle are functioning correctly can help prevent costly repairs down the line as well as minimize the risk of something going wrong while driving.

Additionally, one of the main reasons you should have your vehicle checked is to ensure it runs efficiently and effectively. A regular checkup with a professional mechanic can help diagnose problems before they become more serious or costlier to repair, saving you money in the long run. Regular maintenance also helps preserve the condition and value of your vehicle, which can come in handy when selling or trading it in at a later date.

Finally, having an expert inspect your vehicle allows them to give recommendations for parts or services that could improve drivability or fuel economy. This advice can save you money by helping you proactively and preventatively address potential issues before they arise or become worse. All in all, having your vehicle checked regularly is highly recommended for its effectiveness and efficiency benefits as well as overall safety concerns.

6. Unusual smells coming from the engine bay
7. Tire treads are worn down and need replacement
8. Steering begins to feel loose or rigid
9. Brakes start to squeak or grind when applied
10. Jump-starting your car is needed more often

Main Services

Here are some of the main services we offer.


Vehicle brakes are the components of a vehicle used to slow down or stop its momentum when in motion. Generally, brakes consist of brake pads, brake discs, calipers, and hydraulic systems such as the master cylinder and brake lines. We’re here to help with any of your brake questions.


Vehicle suspension is a system of springs, shock absorbers, and linkages that connects the vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between the two. It absorbs the impact on the vehicle caused by irregularities in the road surface and helps improve ride quality and handling.

Air Conditioning

Vehicle Air Conditioning works by circulating a cooled refrigerant through a series of components, including an evaporator, condenser, compressor, and expansion valve. The refrigerant absorbs excess heat from the air inside the vehicle, cooling it down before it is forced back into the cabin.


Vehicle tires are typically made of a mix of synthetic and natural rubber, wire, fabric, and other chemical compounds. Through time they wear and tear and the next thing you know you’ve got a mess on your hands. Skip the mess and get with the best at R&L Automotive to have your tires taken care of. 


Vehicle diagnostics is a procedure used to detect faults in a vehicle. It includes running computerized tests and checks on the vehicle’s electronic control unit (ECU) to identify any issues with its components, such as engine misfiring, transmission slipping, or fuel system issues. This can be done using a scanner tool that plugs into the vehicle’s OBD-II port, which provides detailed readouts of diagnostic data from the ECU.

Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment is the process of adjusting the angles of the suspension and steering components on a vehicle to meet manufacturer specifications. This ensures the wheels are accurately aligned relative to the car body, as well as each other. Proper wheel alignment helps improve handling and increase tire life by ensuring that all four wheels stay in contact with the ground evenly. Contact us for more information today.

Engine Repair

Engine repair is the process of inspecting and fixing components that make up an internal combustion engine, such as spark plugs, piston rings, bearings, valves and other parts. This may involve cleaning designated components or rebuilding them from scratch. If a major issue is identified, the entire assembly may need to be replaced. Every engine is different and here at R&L Automotive we specialize in all types of engines.


A vehicle tune-up typically includes an oil change, replacing spark plugs and wires, inspecting the fuel filter and air filter, checking the battery terminals and cables, inspecting the brakes and suspension system, inspecting all belts and hoses for cracks or leaks, and checking for any potential code issues. We’re ready to tune up your vehicle today, tomorrow, and or whenever is available for you. We can get you scheduled at your convenience.

Oil Change

An oil change is a procedure in which the old engine oil is drained from the engine, and new oil is added. The process includes changing the oil filter and replacing other components such as gaskets and drain plugs as needed. Oil changes are important because they help keep an engine cool, lubricated, and functioning properly. R&L Automotive is ready to prepare your next oil change.

More Services Available

A normal auto shop typically performs a wide range of tasks related to the maintenance, repair, and customization of automobiles. This can include oil and filter changes, brake jobs, exhaust system repairs or replacements, tire rotation, suspension work, engine tune-ups, transmission repairs, radiator flushes and refills, and diagnostics for diagnostic trouble codes (DTC).
