Car Care: Auto Maintenance Services

Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. in Coralville, IA 52241 is a full-service preventative maintenance and auto repair center, providing comprehensive car care services for your domestic or import vehicle to keep it running at full power. For questions, contact us at 319-338-2053 or send us an email, and our experts will help determine what needs to be done.



Our basic auto maintenance services include:

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc., we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 319-338-2053 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Factory Recommended Service/Maintenance
Automotive and auto parts come with a factory recommended service and maintenance schedule. The manufacturer will tell you how often to service or replace an auto part. At Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc., we offer factory recommended service/maintenance. Our highly skilled auto mechanics offer comprehensive knowledge and experience. At Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc., all your factory recommended service/maintenance needs are handled with the latest diagnostic equipment. Remember, we work on all American and imported vehicles (either diesel or gas engines).

30/60/90K Mileage Maintenance
As time goes by, various auto repair and maintenance needs come up at different intervals. Most manufacturers recommend car maintenance in intervals of 30,000 miles. This is the 30/60/90K mile schedule (issued by the manufacturers to car owners). Trust the experts at Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. to keep you on schedule, and help you preserve the condition of the vehicle, optimize its performance, and increase its resale value. The 30/60/90K service includes the following:

  • Fluid replacements
  • Oil and Filter changes
  • Tire rotation, spin balance, and pressure adjustments
  • Inspection of parts and systems - gears, tires, brake pads, belts, hoses, etc.
  • With higher mileage: spark plugs, belts, timing belts when applicable

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. in Coralville, IA 52241.

Hoses
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. today. The mechanics at Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

Belts
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. today. The mechanics at Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

What People Say About Us


  • -Mike E.

    Always willing go the extra mile for you, Vehicle has been fixed the first time and quickly and accurate every time. Mike the owner is extremely knowledgeable about the vehicles and is willing to explain it to you in a way that makes sense. I don't see them adding in all this extra stuff many other shops need. Best place in town if you want to work with straight shooters.


  • -Barbara A.

    Everyone here was extremely friendly and helpful. My daughter and I felt very welcome and they took care of us in a timely fashion. They even recommended a place where I could purchase less expensive tires. I will be back! Thank you!


  • -Ashley L.

    I will not take my car anywhere else. They are trustworthy, fast, reliable, affordable, and they do not take advantage of you. They really value you here!


  • -James L.

    Central Automotive is the only place I will go. Mike always finds time to fit me in no matter what the issue and keeps me and my fleet on the road. The team of mechanics can handle every situation from oil changes to full engine rebuilds and technical electrical issues. The staff is always friendly and most importantly honest. They understand my schedule and will even go pick up the cars or give me a loaner. Finding an automotive shop that you can trust is hard to find but I always get honest answers on what is worth fixing and what should wait and there is never unnecessary extras or running up the bill. 10 stars wasn't an option or they would get that.


  • -Joe D.

    Best place to get maintenance done! Also the customer service is great.


  • -Rob S.

    Great place to get your vehicle diagnosed and repaired.


  • -M. Schell

    Knowledgeable, friendly, honest service. Will continue to visit for service. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my vehicle. They even gave me a lift home on the other side of town while doing my repairs. Great place, great people!


  • -Theresa C.

    My experience was amazing from the start. I called in about a nightmare of an oil leak. I was anticipating them being able to get me in by the afternoon at best, if not the next day, but Doc kindly answered the phone and told me to bring the car in as soon as I could. I brought it in an hour or two later, and they diagnosed the problem in ten minutes. Everyone was very communicative about the issue, and one member of the team even offered to give me a ride to work as it was going to take a couple of hours. Mike ensured that my car would be repaired by the end of the day, even with the several other projects already in line. It was just extremely refreshing to have honest, genuine, caring people providing top quality service. You can bet I'll be going there for my automotive needs from now on. Thank you!!


  • -Aaron K.
