Check out our full list of services below, then schedule your service by clicking here.

  • A/C
    AC System services include evacuation & recharge. We use only R134 for freon. When you car begins blowing warm air instead of cold air in the summertime this is when it is time to have your vehicle’s AC system inspected for any leaks or damages. You may need just a recharge to get that cool air blowing once again.
  • Alignment
    Does your car feel like it is pulling to the left or right? Did you hit a pothole and begin to notice the steering wheel is off centered? These are important questions to ask yourself when determining if you need an alignment. Lafayette Import Car Care uses the latest technology to re-align your vehicle. We have the capability to do 2 or 4 wheel alignments.
  • Brakes
    We can replace your brake pads with new factory brakes pads or upgraded brake pads for longer drive time between replacements. We will inspect your rotors and determine if they can be turned if possible. We only use the highest quality pads & rotors when replacing your brakes to ensure your vehicle is safe when you go to stop.
  • Oil Changes
    One of the most basic & routine maintenance items on your vehicle is an oil change. We recommend every 3-5K miles you get an oil change depending on the type of oil you use. Standard (Regular): Conventional oils are mineral-based products refined from crude oil taken from the ground. The term “synthetic”, however, does not imply that the oil is somehow created from man-made ingredients. Synthetic: Synthetic oil is, actually, made from natural ingredients using a special chemical process.
  • Fuel Injection
    Every car engine has a fuel system that consists of a fuel filter, a pump, and injectors. During a fuel injection service, we typically inspect all connections, the fuel and vacuum lines, the fuel rail, and the pressure regulator. Then we clean the fuel injectors and throttle body air intake. Afterward, we’ll pressure test the fuel pump and system and then decarbonize other parts of the system like the exhaust valves. When all is said and done, we run an exhaust emissions test to make sure the system is working properly again.
  • Timing Belt
    The timing belt is a rubber belt that synchronizes the actions of the camshaft and crankshaft to keep your valves safely moving and your engine running. In older vehicles, the timing belt may actually be a chain. Regardless, the purpose is the same, and it is important to the functioning of your vehicle. Newer cars can usually go 100,000 miles before the timing belt needs replacement. Older vehicles may need it replaced at 60,000. It is important to note that if the water pump goes bad, the timing belt will usually need to also be replaced. If a timing belt is worn out it may begin to slip and severe misfires will occur. Unfortunately, there is no clear-cut sign that a timing belt is going bad.
  • Water Pump
    The water pump pushes coolant from the radiator through the coolant system, into the engine and back around to the radiator. The heat that the coolant picked up from the engine is transferred to the air at the radiator. Without the water pump, the coolant just sits in the system. The engine is likely to overheat, which can cause serious engine damage. Water pumps have a life span and should be replaced at the interval your owner's manual suggests.
  • Drive Train
    A car’s drivetrain connects the engine to the wheels enabling the vehicle to move. As the engine runs, the drivetrain helps send power through the transmission to the drive wheels. The drive wheels can be either the front wheels, rear wheels, or all the wheels — also known as front-wheel, rear-wheel, and all-wheel drive. Components included in the drivetrain include the Transmission, Driveshaft, CV Joint, U Joint, Differentials & Axle Shafts.
  • Suspension
    We can replace shocks, struts, sway bar links, stabilizer bars, control arms & bushings for front & rear suspension. We typically recommend an alignment after suspension work has been completed to ensure your vehicle is running properly again.
  • Steering
    A vehicle's steering system is a vital part of a vehicle's ability to move. The main functions of the steering system is to provide vehicle turning per will of the driver, directional stability, it converts the rotary movement of the steering wheel into an angular turn of front wheels, and absorbs road shock from being transmitted to a driver's hands. A motor vehicle's steering system contains the following basic parts: Steering wheel, Steering shaft and Column, Tie rods, rack, idler arms, Pitman arm, and drag or center link.
  • 30K, 60K, 90K Manufacturer Recommended Service
    Manufacturers often have routine service schedules applicable based on a vehicle’s age and mileage. Some of the more common intervals recur every 30,000 miles. A 30/60/90K service check up is designed to address maintenance and inspection items applicable to the respective mileage interval. Generally, these items may include filter changes, fluid changes and a comprehensive visual maintenance inspection as well as other items, depending on the specific mileage interval. Most modern vehicles will have received several major service requirements at 90,000 miles. Some however, may not require some of these items (Timing Belts, for example) until the next interval of 120,000 miles or beyond. We also recommend performing routine maintenance services at this time as well including an oil change, tire rotation, fluid top off and more.
