Our first-time customers consistently become our long-time customers. We are a family owned business and provide specialized and personal service to owners of German cars.

Scheduled Maintenance

German cars are designed with strict maintenance schedules. To keep your vehicle in peak condition and avoid costly repairs in the future, it is important to follow our recommended maintenance schedule. Most German automobiles have extended scheduled service intervals at 20,000 miles, 40,000 miles, 60,000 miles, 80,000 miles and 105,000 miles. Necessary services will vary with the year, make and model of the vehicle. Here at Revolution Automotive we recommend a service schedule that will ensure your vehicle will run better, more efficient, break down less and certainly last much longer. Our routine maintenance schedules prevent premature wear of components and increase the dependability and fuel efficiency of your vehicle.

The technicians at Revolution Automotive follow the check list for your car and perform every inspection, service and repair needed. We keep detailed service history records to make sure that your warranty stays intact. Repairs can become costly and time consuming without the factory endorsed warranties. This will also increase the resale value of your car. We also have access to the most recent Technical Service Bulletins issued by automobile manufacturers and we stay up to date on the most current maintenance specifications. Like dealership service departments, we use specialized diagnostic equipment and service tools.

Oil Changes

Oil is the lubrication that keeps your engine running smoothly. Once oil becomes dangerously low, old and dirty the integrity of your car is compromised; parts can begin to grind against each other causing problematic damage. This can lead to costly repairs.

The benefits of changing your oil on a regular schedule are fairly substantial. These are five advantages of changing the oil in your car every 5,000 miles or every 6 months:

– Prevents buildup of sludge
Debris and dirt particles begin to accumulate as oil travels through your engine. Although there are filters to catch any sludge, some dirt particles are naturally going to slide through and gradually wear down your engine. Clean oil will allow the engine to run efficiently. It is also a good idea to have your oil filter changed on the same schedule.

– Increased gas mileage
Cleaner fluid will reduce friction and allow your car to move with less resistance. Less resistance means extra gas mileage.

– Better performance
Since oil changes help reduce both grind and friction in the engine, clean oil will lead to an overall smoother ride.

– Reduced harmful emissions
Older oil can cause your vehicle to emit gasses that are harmful to the environment. Remembering to put clean oil in your car on a regular basis will reduce the burning problem, resulting in less air pollution.

– Longer vehicle life
Better lubrication, less friction, better handling and less overall wearand tear to your car; you can add years to the life of your car with regular oil and filter changes. While any vehicle will ultimately run its course, an extra two or more years with your vehicle makes every oil change more than worthwhile.

Check Engine Diagnosis

In order to ensure that your vehicle is in safe working condition, it is important to run regular check engine light diagnostics. The certified German car mechanics at Revolution Automotive Services can diagnose engine trouble by transmitting information from a car’s computer to a diagnostic tool which supplies performance data. This data allows our mechanics to

– Properly diagnose the cause of the check-engine light
– Develop recommendations for vehicle repair
– Discuss possible causes, related symptoms and the degree of urgency with car owners
– Re-set the check engine light in a vehicle

Avoiding regular check engine light maintenance can cause many critical problems to go unnoticed. Even certified technicians need to use a specialized diagnostic tool to pinpoint the root cause of a dashboard notification. These warnings can be a simple oil change reminder or they can be indicative of a larger problem like brake system problems or engine, electrical or vehicle performance issues. Instead of waiting for a system alert, it is a good idea to incorporate engine checks as part of your 6-month vehicle maintenance.

Electrical Systems

The electrical system of any vehicle is made up of the battery the starter and the alternator. The starter gets energy from the battery and the alternator gives energy to that battery which powers your car. If one of these parts is not properly working then your car will not run correctly, In many instances your car just won’t start.

Electrical system checks are important to ensure that these parts are all working properly. This check will identify any potential electrical system issues and prevent any problems before you are left stranded.

The battery of your car provides an electrical current to the entre automotive system. Both the fuel system and the ignition rely on the battery to create the necessary combustion to keep your engine functioning properly
Even though the battery supplies the power that starts the vehicle, the starter is responsible for getting the engine going. The battery provides a small amount of power to the starter. In turn, the starter rotates the flywheel which turns the crankshaft and begins the movement of the pistons. This process is dependent upon the starter which is why it is critical to make sure the starter is in good working condition. An electrical system check at Revolution Automotive Services can help identify warning signs of a failing starter.

Vehicle Inspections

Regular vehicle inspections help to ensure the safety and working condition of your car. The main priority of a vehicle inspection is to ensure that the vehicle is both well maintained and suitable for local and highway driving. Inspections are also important because they allow drivers to be fully educated about all the critical components of their car.

Most auto mechanics offer two different vehicle inspection services. The first is often just a visual inspection of your engine, lights, tires and some other safety features. These are often offered free along with an oil change. The second type of inspection comes with a number in front of it (20, 50 or 100-point inspection). This is a more thorough inspection and one that we highly recommend at 10,000 to 15,000 miles and before taking a long road trip. We also recommend this type of inspection in addition to a test drive, prior to buying a used car. A quality auto inspection can help find serious flaws like transmission or engine problems and potentially save you lots of dollars.

At Revolution Automotive we offer a 56-point digital vehicle inspection complimentary to you every time your vehicle is in for service or repair. You receive a link to view this inspection containing pictures of your own vehicle via a text or email.

Brake Systems

When it comes to overall driving safety, your brakes are easily the most important part of your vehicle. After all, stopping is ultimately more important than going. Your brakes should be inspected once a year, at a minimum. This will determine the condition of the operating hardware and the hydraulic system.

In addition to your braking system, the friction components of the system require constant attention since they are subject to wear and tear every time you apply your brakes. These components include:
– Brake pads
– Brake shoes
– Rotors
– Drums

These are some tell-tale signs that you need brake service or brake repair
– When you apply your brakes you hear a squealing noise or other unusual noise.
-You feel a vibration or shake when the brakes are applied
– Your vehicle begins to pull to one side when the brakes are applied
– The brake pedal in your car can be pressed almost to the floor
– When you come to a stop you feel a bumpy sensation or a grinding

Overall if there is anything about your brakes that is making you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, you should have them inspected by an expert mechanic as soon as possible.
The benefits of a well-maintained brake system include:
– Safety
– Smooth stopping
– Even braking
– Consistent stopping even under repeated harder braking conditions
– Longer life for your brake system and friction material
– Peace of mind

At Revolution Automotive we use nothing but very high-quality brake parts. In fact, in many cases, we have products that will nearly eliminate the black brake dust that builds up on your wheels. These products also extend the life of your brake pads and rotors far beyond that of the original parts.

Steering and Suspension

One of the most important components of your car, the steering and suspension system not only helps you steer and direct your vehicle, it also you to slow down and speed up. To give you a better feel for the magnitude of this system, this is how the steering and suspension work:

– Steering- There are two types of steering systems: rack and pinion (RAP) or reciprocating ball (RB) steering. With RAP steering, both the steering wheel and the columns are attached to a rack which is responsible for moving a piston to turn your wheels. On RB steering, there are a series of links and arms that are used to ensure that not only do wheels all turn together but they turn at the same time.

– Suspension – The suspension of a vehicle ensures that the wheels make contact with the road. Your suspension system utilizes a variety of shock absorbers, springs and struts which all need replacing from wear and tear. It is important to check these components regularly.

The steering and suspension system plays a pivotal role in the overall operation of a vehicle. If you ever find that your car is drifting, your steering wheel feels like it is pulling or you have trouble controlling direction or speed, it is necessary to have your car checked as soon as possible. Ignoring steering and suspension issues can lead to dangerous and expensive problems down the road.

Exhaust

The exhaust system is what keeps a car quiet on the road. This system also works to prevent toxic gases from seeping into your vehicle. Gases like carbon monoxide can lead to serious health issues. The four main parts of the exhaust system include the exhaust pipes the catalytic converter, the exhaust manifold and the muffler.

The exhaust manifold is in the front of your car and receives the toxic gases that are given off by the burning gas that powers your car. These gases then pass through the exhaust pipe and are analyzed by the oxygen sensors. Next, they travel through the catalytic converter which literally converts the gases into emissions that are less harmful to the environment. This exhaust is then pushed out through the muffler. Because the different parts of this system all work together as one unit, it is possible that when one part fails another may also need to be replaced

Unless something goes wrong with the system, we recommend having the exhaust system checked annually. If you hear louder than normal sounds as you are driving or notice exhaust coming from somewhere other than your muffler, these are signs of an impending breakdown. Exhaust fumes coming from unusual places in your vehicle can be potentially dangerous sine these fumes do contain carbon monoxide. Both issues require an exhaust system check right away.

Four Wheel Alignment

You can use pictures from my current site where I have nice pics of my alignment machine when it was new.

Wheel alignments help tires maintain straight-line tracking. Your tires should be angled correctly, pointing straight ahead, parallel to each other and level to the ground. To maximize the life of your tires you want to make sure your vehicle has proper alignment angles. This also helps to ensure smoother handling of the car.

Four-wheel alignments help extend the life of your tires. Misaligned tires will ultimately lead to uneven tread wear and poor tire performance. Wheels that are out of alignment can wreak havoc on the overall handling of your vehicle. For most drivers, a four-wheel alignment is the best choice. This works especially well with cars that have front-wheel drive. Potholes, curbs and accidents can cause wheels to become misaligned. If your vehicle is pulling strongly to one side or if you notice uneven or abnormal tire wear then it is time for a four-wheel alignment service.

Properly aligned wheels can cut down on fuel costs since there will be less rolling resistance. Routine wheel alignments will also prevent unequal tire wear which add years to the life of your tires.

Cooling System Service

The cooling system in your vehicle works to cool down important components in the engine that heat during movement. Regular cooling system maintenance will prevent your car from overheating and keep engine fluids from freezing.

Aproperly functioning cooling system will movecoolant throughout the engine and the radiator. This allowsthe engine temperature to stay cooler and protects the engine from potential damage caused by heat. Critical engine parts, like cylinder head gaskets, can fail due to a cooling system that is not working properly. Regularly scheduled maintenance can help prevent expensive auto cooling system repairs bycatching a potential problem before it happens.

If you notice your engine is running hotter than normal after it starts or if the temperature slowly increases as you drive you might have a cooling system issue. Other signs include the smell of maple syrup and/or a blue, pink or amber fluid leaking from beneath your vehicle.

A quick maintenance procedure might include an antifreeze/coolant flush and fill. A trained mechanic can inspect your vehicle and do the necessary maintenance to prevent a potential vehicle breakdown. Fluid exchange services might be needed as well. Always make sure you have the prescribed level of fluids to maintain vehicle driving safety and performance.Missing regularly scheduled cooling system maintenance can lead to premature corrosion of your cooling system, overheating or freezing which will lead to costly repairs.

Close

Battery Service

The sole source of electrical power for your vehicle, the battery stores energy and provides power to the fuel system, the ignition system, the starter and most of the electrical components as you start your car. The alternator charges the battery while your engine is running. The battery also provides power to these electrical components when your vehicle is not running. To help prolong the life of your car, it is important to schedule regular vehicle battery maintenance and possibly have an auto battery replacement prior to having a ‘no start’ condition.

If you ever look under the hood of your car and notice a white or blue powdery substance on the battery or cables this is the dried acid which signals the beginning of corrosion. It is a good idea to have the battery and the cables cleaned and checked regularly. This will help prevent corrosion build up and extend battery life.

Here are some additional tips to extend the life of a car battery:
– Avoid shorter trips
– When the car is off, refrain from using battery-powered accessories
– Whenever possible, park your vehicle in the shade or in a covered garage

-Have your battery, charging system and starting system check every 6 months to ensure they are all functioning properly

– Most modern German cars require being “Registered or Programmed” when a new battery is installed. Failing to have this procedure carried out properly by a professional with the right equipment will result in premature failure of the new battery, over charging of the alternator and can cause other electrical systems to act up. Make sure you have a professional install the correct battery and carry out the procedure as prescribed by the manufacturer to avoid further costly repairs.

Transmission Repair

A transmission is a complex piece of machinery that has a variety of working parts. Periodic fluid and system checks are important to keep your vehicle running smoothly. These are potential warning signs that you may need transmission repair in Norwood, MA:

– Noise, especially clunking, from the under carriage
– A delay when shifting gears
– Car sticks or will not engage when shifting gears
– Loss of fluid and magenta tinted stains under the car
– A burning smell

A routine fluid flush can enhance the life of your transmission since transmission fluid loses effectiveness gradually, over time. Transmission fluid protects and coats the transmission gears. When gears grind on each other usually results in small pieces of metal getting into the fluid. The more fragments that end up in the transmission fluid the faster transmission parts will wear. Additives like detergents protect the transmission and are present in the fluid. These protectants deplete over time and make it difficult for the old fluid to protect your vehicle. Refer to your owners’ manual for the recommended schedule for transmission service. Or ask your trusted auto service center when your fluid should be changed. Even though some manufacturers say the transmission fluid is “Life Time Fluid”, we recommend transmission services every 30-40,000 miles depending on the make and model of your car. Life time fluid does not mean for the life of the car. It means for the life of the transmission because when it fails from lack of fluid changes, you will be getting new fluid in the new transmission.
