If you've walked through the automotive fluids section of an auto parts store in Beaumont, you'll know how overwhelming the sheer number of products available can be. How do you know what's right for your vehicle?
As you know, these fluids all serve a function in making your car run as you drive around the Beaumont area. Your vehicle manufacturer has specified a particular type of fluid for every system from the motor, to the cooling system, brake fluid and so on. When you realize that not every variation is applicable to your vehicle, the task becomes more manageable.
First let's talk about why there are so many varieties. Starting with motor oil, we see that manufacturers match the properties of a particular weight or type of oil with the design needs of the engine. For example, engines with sophisticated valve trains often require a thinner weight of oil.
Some vehicles around Beaumont come from the factory filled with synthetic oil and the recommendation to use it for life. The safe bet is to always use what the factory recommends. The recommendation is what's been proven to work in function and durability tests. The recommended oil is also a factor in determining oil change interval schedules.
Sometimes fluids are developed specifically to meet the needs of a particular family of engines. An example would be coolant. Because of the different materials used to build the cooling system, the coolant has to be formulated to protect those parts, which vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, from corrosion. We've seen special coolant in Texas for General Motors, Volkswagen, Chrysler and others.
The same is true of transmission fluid and brake fluid in recent years.
The really good news is that the friendly and professional service advisors at AAMCO Transmission & Total Car Care have databases that tell them the recommended fluids for your vehicle. This takes all the guess work out. If you have some special needs, like a higher mileage engine or want enhanced performance, ask your service advisor for upgrades or additives that'll meet your needs while being consistent with the manufacturer's recommendations.
Saw a sign for a free check engine light ! When I called the man that answered the phone said to bring my car in as soon as possible for a free check. Shortly after I got there my car was checked and I was told what needed to be repaired. Chris gave me an estimate and told me they could have the car ready in only a few hours. I was impressed with the professional, yet down to earth, approach they took with me. I would recommend AAMCO to anyone looking for friendly, professional, and accurate service. Thanks again.
AAMCO is not only the best shop in all of Beaumont but the most honest. The check engine light and a/c check really are free. I today's world it is hard to find honest people. The owner's live in the local community and they are fine people who employ ASE technicians. When a company cares about the customer that is the most important thing. I needed something I thought was major but turned out to be something minor. I want to thank the people at AAMCO you treated me very good and I will recomend my family and friends to come here. If you want a repair that is diagnosed correctly and an honest price fixed by people that know what they are doing this is the only place in Beaumont to come to. Thanks to everyone at AAMCO for being professional and honest.
I just had my second repair with AAMCO on Eastex Frwy. The first one was a second opinion after a routine oil change mechanic told me I needed a repair that they couldn't do. I went to AAMCO and was told the exact same thing and was quoted a price that was less than what I was told to expect. My second repair was a brake repair. I really feel comfortable getting my car repaired there. I never feel like I am taken advantage of because of my lack of knowledge about automotive type things. This is a huge plus. The mechanics I met seemed great...the person in the front office was very nice...and the owners are sincere and genuine. Highly recommend!
