From reminding you about routine service intervals to ensuring that all fluids, filters, and hoses are in optimal condition, Joy Automotive takes care of your vehicle and leaves you with one less item on your to do list.

Contact us at 310-450-1712, or send us an email, and our experts will be happy to answer your questions and determine what needs to be done.

Our basic auto maintenance services include:

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 Joy Automotive 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

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 Joy Automotive 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 Joy Automotive today. The mechanics at Joy Automotive will thoroughly inspect your car’s belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

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 Joy Automotive, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 310-450-1712 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 Joy Automotive, we offer factory recommended service/maintenance. Our highly skilled auto mechanics offer comprehensive knowledge and experience. At Joy Automotive, 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).

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 Joy Automotive 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 Joy Automotive today. The mechanics at Joy Automotive will thoroughly inspect your car’s hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

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 Joy Automotive in Santa Monica, CA 90405.
