Our knowledgeable mechanics use the latest diagnostic tools and equipment to locate and fix problems in your Audi. This helps your car continue running smoothly, and it means that you’ll be in and out of the repair shop as quickly as possible. From routine factory-scheduled services such as brakes and oil changes to aesthetic and mechanical repairs, here are some common services you can contact Mario Motorsports for.
Abiding by your owner’s manual for a timeline of Audi service is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your car. The owner’s manual is designed for your specific model and year, which gives you precise information about what kind of maintenance is needed at different mileage points. On Audi USA’s website, you can download a maintenance schedule for your precise Audi model. You can also explore additional benefits and protective measures for your Audi, such as learning about the tire pressure monitoring system and getting a protection plan for an Audi that you buy or purchase.
Maintenance by Mileage
Periodically, your Audi needs a mechanic’s expert inspection to make sure that everything is running smoothly. The auto industry generally recommends bringing a car in for service around 30,000 miles, 60,000 miles, and 90,000 miles. A comprehensive inspection will be performed at each mileage point so that your mechanic can look for signs of problems. Starting at 30,000 miles, your brakes, air filter, and spark plugs will be checked and possibly replaced. This is repeated about every 30,000 miles. Vital system fluids will be flushed, and your mechanic will check major systems like the suspension, transmission, and engine. You’ll also get a wheel alignment if necessary. This guide provides a thorough overview of the services provided by mileage.
Oil And Fluid Leak Repairs
The oil in your car is essentially like blood in the human body. It is a vital fluid that keeps the car running. Without enough oil in the system, major components run the risk of breaking. Like other types of fluid in the car, oil can occasionally leak out. A grease stain in the garage or driveway, a burning smell when you drive, and smoke coming from the engine can all indicate that you might have an oil leak. Other fluids can leak from your car too, which is evident by a pool of liquid under the car. If this happens, you’ll need the fast, expert assistance at Mario Motorsports, one of the best Austin auto repair shops.
Brake System Maintenance and Repairs
With a high-powered car like an Audi, it’s essential to have working brakes. The brakes will be checked at your car’s scheduled mileage points, but they may also wear out in between. Signs of brake problems include a scraping or grinding noise, rubbing, and pulsing when you step on the brake pedal. You may also notice vibrations in the steering wheel. As this article points out, each car’s braking system is unique, so it’s best to contact us for an accurate diagnosis and repairs if you think something is wrong with the braking system.
Check Engine Light Diagnostics
Another common issue that car owners face is having something go wrong with the engine. The engine is one of the car’s most important parts, but like any other component, it is not immune to problems. While you might not be able to fix the problem yourself, you can at least recognize that something is wrong when the “Check Engine” light comes on. This light will illuminate for any kind of engine problem, regardless of whether it’s a minor issue like a loose gas cap or a more serious problem. Regardless of the cause, it’s essential that you bring your car in when this light is on, as an engine problem can quickly cause extensive damage to your vehicle.
Along with major mechanical issues, we also specialize in aesthetic repairs. One service that we offer is wheel repairs, in which we can remove dents and scrapes that inevitably crop up over time. When you come in for a wheel repair, we’ll find a replacement part that matches your current wheels. This is also a great time to get a wheel alignment if needed and even upgrade to new tires or change out seasonal tires.
As the premier Audi specialists in the North Austin area, we’re proud to be a trusted go-to resource for people who are considering buying a new or used Audi. It’s always a good idea to have an independent third-party mechanic who you know and trust look over a car before you buy it. By putting the car up on a lift and checking it out thoroughly inside and out, we can tell if there are any hidden problems or if the car is good to go. When you are thinking of buying an Audi, just contact us ahead of time, and we’ll schedule an appointment time to get your car checked out. A pre-purchase inspection can be done relatively quickly, and it’s well worth your time to either know that you can buy a car with confidence or that you’re better off skipping a vehicle that you are considering getting.
