PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure your vehicle stays reliable, and lets you avoid major repairs as well as the expenses that come with them. At Catalano Automotive Repair, we provide a complete preventative maintenance program, and carry all the necessary parts and expertise to take care of the little jobs that let you avoid the big ones. Choose from a comprehensive range of the fluids, oils, filters, and belts that your vehicle needs to keep running happily and healthily. Relax while your ride is inspected by our highly-trained technicians, and rest assured that it'll keep running smoothly for miles and miles.

The first part of our preventative maintenance program deals with your vehicle's fluids. Your car needs these fluids to keep running smoothly and prevent overheating. Most of our fluid change services are completed quickly so you can get back on the road in Needham, MA. Our technicians are happy to monitor and refill your engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, brake fluid, anti-freeze, power steering and wiper fluids. We also perform checks on your radiator to ensure there are no small leaks caused by stones and other road debris.

The next area of our program deals with the filters in your car. Whether filtering oil, fuel, or air, your car's engine and drivetrain rely on pure ingredients free from power-robbing particles. Your vehicle's fuel system, for example, wants only the purest gasoline or diesel. When microscopic particles build up in the system over time they reduce its efficiency and cause issues like decreased gas mileage. The same goes for your engine's air filter. An engine needs a mix of fuel and air to create combustion, and that can't happen if your motor can't breathe. Regularly changing your car's filters will prevent this from occurring. Catalano Automotive Repair will make sure all your car's filters are flowing smoothly and clear, as well as the often-overlooked cabin air filter which can make a huge difference in how pleasant a car is to be inside.

Tire balancing is an important area of preventative maintenance where we excel. If your car's tires are out of balance, they could be putting undue strain on components in the suspension, braking, and drivetrain systems, which can cost you greatly further down the road. Ensuring a smooth ride with professionally balanced wheels and tires is a much cheaper, easier, and safer way to make sure your car stays on the road, while ensuring a long life for your tires.

Your car's timing belts are extremely important to examine during the course of preventative maintenance. There are a number of events that need to take place for one full revolution of your car's engine. These belts ensure that they all line up with each other, and occur at exactly the right moment. Should the belts become damaged or break, the events can fall out of sync and happen at the wrong time, which can be seriously detrimental to the health of your engine and your car overall. Catalano Automotive Repair ensures that all your car's belts are healthy, and that all of those events keep happening at exactly the right time.

If you want Catalano Automotive Repair to make sure that your vehicle is well-equipped to continue transporting you safely for years to come, call us at 781-559-0721, or visit us in Needham, MA so we can schedule a time to take a look at it!

Testimonials

  • reviewiconVery Informative and Quick
    I could not have been more pleased with my interaction with Catalano Auto. The owner took it upon himself to list a few different tire options for me after I let him know what I was looking for. The work was done quickly and they even vacuumed the inside of my car without being asked, very cool! I will most certainly be going back there for any other needs that come up.

    Brakes, near Newton, MA
    I was very impressed by all the positive online comments for John and his Catalano Automotive Repair. I thus brought my Toyota to him about a year ago with some concern with the brakes. He did a quick check and said all looked fine - no need to do any replacement. A couple weeks ago, I brought the car to him again for maintenance and others. The whole process was efficient and John was very professional. He even offered the service to drop the car as I couldn't go there to pick it up before the New Year holiday. Definitely will be back again and recommend to others.

    John and his staff are always amazing! We've brought our cars here a few times and every time it's worked out very well. I had an issue once and the larger National chains were telling me I needed several things done and it was going to cost quite a bit. John checked the car out and said I didn't need half the work that they quoted. Honest, knowledgeable, fairly priced and is willing to explain the problem in a way you will understand if you don't happen to be proficient yourself in auto mechanics. No one wants their car in need of a repair but if you do, this is the place to come!

    Been a happy customer for years! John is honest, does an excellent job, and is the only reason my 20 year old car lasted as long as it did. I can't recommend him highly enough!

    John is a great mechanic. Needed new brakes on my Lexus he did them for considerably less than I was quoted from the Lexus dealership.

    John is just aces. He did many repairs on my old Audi A4 and I now bring my newer Audi A4 2.0T Quattro to him for maintenance. He is forthright, efficient and so glad to have him as my auto mechanic! Highly recommend ?????
