Tune Ups and Oil Filter Services
The key to keeping your Porsche in top condition is sticking to a schedule of routine tune ups. When you have professionals consistently inspecting and cleaning important components of your vehicle and checking for signs of damage or wear, there’s a much better chance that future problems will be caught early, before they become dangerous or costly. Our team provides quality tune ups so that your vehicle is being taken care of the way it should be. Since oil is what makes your engine run, it’s also important to make sure you’re up to date on your Porsche’s oil changes. At European Motor Cars, we provide oil change services as well as oil inspection and filter replacements to keep your engine running smoothly and detect any problems while we’re at it.
To be sure that your Porsche meets local standards for emissions, it’s important to receive high quality repairs for damages, malfunctions or complications involving the harmful substances in your vehicle. Auto work done by professionals can mean the difference between passing your annual emissions test and receiving a notice of failure. Many problems within your emissions system can be hard to uncover, but our European Motor Cars specialists know how to methodically isolate the problem areas and get them back in perfect condition. Whether this means replacements for parts such as gas caps, leaking pipes or catalytic converters, or making repairs to other emissions control equipment, European Motor Cars can ensure that your Porsche is ready to pass its emissions test and get back on the road.
Electrical System Diagnostics and Repair
Your Porsche is a machine that runs on a battery, operates computers, and can charge and enable many different electric accessories and devices. Issues within the electrical wiring of your vehicle can create multiple inconveniences, and because the starter and alternator are part of your electrical system as well, damages or malfunctions can prevent your Porsche from running. For these reasons, it’s important that the vehicle is evaluated by specialists. At European Motor Cars, we can diagnose the underlying issue behind a series of symptoms, no matter how simple or complex, and make specialized repairs as needed.
Heating and A/C Repair
Having heat and air conditioning available when you’re driving is one convenience many of us aren’t willing to give up. Especially during seasonal extremes, inadequate climate control can mean the difference between driving your Porsche and actually enjoying the ride, and it’s a shame when such a well-crafted vehicle isn’t running at the peak performance it could be. At European Motor Cars, we diagnose your heating and a/c problems through careful inspection of the compressor, belts, heater core, fans, and all other components in the system for wear, damages, leaks or malfunctions.
Shocks and Struts
Dampening the shock of an impact and keeping all four of your Porsche’s tires on the ground is essential to the safety of all passengers inside the vehicle. Shocks and struts are two types of equipment that make this possible, and at European Motor Cars we offer services to repair or replace these important components. Whether your parts are worn out or have been damaged while driving, our team can provide you with front and rear services for your shocks and struts, as well as replacement bushings. Since these parts often do not have a set mileage that they must be replaced at, paying attention to warning signs is the best way to figure out if you are in need of maintenance. Two of the most common symptoms of bad shocks or struts are excessive bouncing, or the front or back end of your car dipping towards the ground.
Engines are complicated pieces of equipment, and when one component suffers, the rest of the engine is likely to follow suit. Although poor maintenance can certainly be the reason for engine problems, normal wear and tear can also produce trouble, and this trouble can be serious. At European Motor Cars, our Porsche experts can evaluate your engine and work to get it back to performing like new. When you encounter devastating engine damage, we offer engine rebuilding services as a reliable and economic alternative to driving with worsening complications or selling your beloved Porsche. By removing your engine and rebuilding it with high quality parts, we can give your vehicle a fresh start.
A quality brake service should include a thorough inspection of the entire system, including rotors, drums, hoses, lines, calipers, wheel cylinders, the master cylinder, and more. A number or malfunctions or damages could cause brake problems, with leaking components and worn hardware being among the most common of culprits. The age of your car and your driving habits are directly related to the condition of your brakes, which means it’s up to you to get them checked out before any small issues become serious. At European Motor Cars, we service grinding, squealing, and sticking brakes, perform lamp inspections, and work on every part of your braking system to ensure that you are safe and comfortable driving your Porsche.
Mufflers and Exhaust
Your exhaust system is made up of a catalytic converter, a series of specialized pipes, and a muffler, although the type of vehicle you own can determine how complex this system can be. The reason for an exhaust system is to collect the gases emitted directly from your engine and eventually release them out from your tailpipe. Because of the variation of exhaust systems and the amount of customization Porsche owners have the opportunity to take advantage of, you need a team of European Motor Car specialists that can handle a variety of complications and provide reliable solutions. A noisy or leaking exhaust system is one that needs repairs or replacement parts before damage becomes more severe.
Suspension and Steering
In order to have adequate control of your Porsche’s handling, damages to your suspension and steering systems must be taken care of promptly, and by professionals familiar with German vehicles. Our European Motor Cars mechanics know exactly what to look for when it comes to suspension trouble, form the frame of your vehicle and your shocks or struts, to your torsion bars and springs. One common issue with suspension systems is worn-out bushings, which our team can replace after examining your vehicle for other causes of trouble. If you’re looking for professional repairs that will guarantee you a smooth-running Porsche, a trip to European Motor Cars might be all you need.
Fuel System Repair
If you are experiencing difficulty starting your Porsche, or you experience stalling, sputtering or trouble accelerating, the source of the trouble could exist within your vehicle’s fuel system. This system is responsible for delivering the fuel that runs your vehicle, and consists of the fuel itself, the fuel injector, fuel pump, relays, filters, spouts, and more. If damage or wear exists within this system, it results in too little or too much fuel being supplied to the engine, which influences the way your car runs. If parts of your fuel system are failing or have been damaged, European Motor Cars can clean, repair, or replace any and all components so that your system, and engine, can work properly once again.
Timing Belt and Water Pump Replacement
It’s important to get your timing belt checked out when replacing your water pump and vice versa. This is because both pieces of equipment are very close to one another and making needed replacements before your car starts exhibiting severe symptoms always saves money in the long run. No one wants to have their timing belt replaced just in time for their water pump to fail and destroy the new equipment. At European Motor Cars, we provide replacements for both timing belts and water pumps, because our team understands that extending the life of your Porsche is a matter of good judgment calls and maintenance practices.
The job of your Porsche’s transmission is to transfer the power of your vehicle into the wheels, thus enabling you to drive. For this reason, your transmission fluid should be regularly inspected; this fluid is vital to a properly functioning transmission system, much like oil is to your engine. Warning signs that you need transmission services as soon as possible include unusual vibrations throughout your vehicle, grinding, banging or shuddering, a red leak underneath your car, or abnormal/jerky operation of your Porsche. At European Motor Cars, we can service your vehicle completely and eradicate your transmission problems through professional diagnostics, repairs and replacements.
