Over Two Decades of Auto Service to Bellevue!
Ali's Bellevue Auto Repair, like our other shop Ali's Woodinville Auto Repair, offers the most services and expertise of any area auto shop. For example, we handle all brake repairs: replace worn pads/linings, turn or cut rotors and/or drums, adjust and bleed system, repack wheel bearings, and replace calipers, wheel cylinders, and master cylinders. And, we provide wheel alignment for almost all sizes of vehicles---not every shop can offer that service. Our hope is that Bellevue auto repair customers will find the diagnosis and quality customer service that they are looking for and that we can help them look over all areas of their vehicle for their peace of mind and long-term affordability.
Speaking of diagnosis, our auto repair shop is also one of the best local shops for complete, professional diagnostic equipment. This helps our technicians to ensure we get the problem fixed and repaired the first time. Even the most intricate car systems, like the diagnosis of engines and engine repair, we offer fuel injection system diagnostic tools, ignition system diagnostics, and computerized engine control testing.
We have so many years in the business, and nearly two decades in Bellevue, service folks with quality auto services, and advice that keeps you running stronger for longer, and less overall costs. We can't wait for you to come see Ali's Bellevue Auto Repair on Northup Way in Bellevue, WA!
How often might you need the most common auto repair services?
Oil Changes keep the engine running smoothly and are very important for your car's overall health Most cars need an oil change every 3,000 to 7,000 miles, but check your owner's manual. Your brakes, on the other hand, are super important for YOUR safety. It's good to have our shop checked once a year or if you hear a squeaking sound. Brake pads wear out over time because of how much we use them. You might need new brake pads every 50,000 miles, but some wear out sooner--in the range of around 25,000 miles.
When it comes to air filter replacement, dust and dirt can (and will eventually) clog them up. Clean air helps the engine. Most cars should get a new air filter about once a year or every 12,000 miles.
Another portion of your vehicle that needs inevitable replacement is your car battery lasts about 3-5 years on average. If your car has trouble starting, it might be time for a new battery. And, Ali's can handle your batter replacement for you at our Bellevue area shop.
A lot of auto mechanics make reference to getting your belts and hoses checked, and that's because they almost always crack or break over time. Most recommendations say to check these EVERY time a car is brought to us. Most cars might need them replaced every 40,000 to 60,000 miles.
Wheel Alignment Service: It's good to check your alignment every 2 to 3 years. But if you drive on rough roads a lot, or notice any of the above signs, you should get it checked sooner. Also, certain occurrences can "knock" you out of alignment. Like hitting potholes or curbs, getting new tires, or having prolonged tire wear.
These last two are a little dicey for some because they are often forgotten until your auto service professional tells you that it should probably be done. Getting your transmission serviced is important because your transmission is what helps your car switch gears correctly. Most cars need service every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. If you think your transmission might be failing, it helps to know how long a transmission is expected to last before failure. Manual transmissions last between 60,000 to 120,000 miles. However, with excellent care, some can reach up to 200,000 miles. An automatic transmission can last between 100,000 to 200,000 miles. Again, with proper maintenance, some automatic transmissions can last even longer.
It's like your transmission checks, but actually, your car suspension needs to be checked even more often. It's a good idea to check your suspension at least once a year or every 12,000 to 15,000 miles. However, if you start to notice a change in how your car drives or feels, or hear noises, it's best to get it checked out sooner. There are many components to your suspension system, so a lot of different things must be checked, serviced, or repaired: Shocks and struts, ball joints, bushings, control arms, tie rod ends, etc. We do our best to check car suspensions, and we regularly handle suspension repairs.
Remember, every automobile has its own service schedule and parts that require slightly different services. Always check your car's owner's manual or ask your friends at Ali's Bellevue Auto Repair if you need any help. The GREAT NEWS for you and your vehicle is that Ali's Bellevue Auto Repair handles ALL of these preventative maintenance and repair at our shop, and can help you keep track of what needs to be done and when. Obviously, we do much more, so if you have a check engine light come on, you can just simply bring your car or truck to us and know that we can get it right!
