Preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure your vehicle stays reliable, and lets you avoid major repairs as well as the expenses that come with them. At AutoChoice Service Center, we provide a complete preventative maintenance program, and carry all the necessary parts and expertise to take care of the little jobs that let you avoid the big ones. Choose from a comprehensive range of the fluids, oils, filters, and belts that your vehicle needs to keep running happily and healthily. Relax while your ride is inspected by our highly-trained technicians, and rest assured that it'll keep running smoothly for miles and miles.
The first part of our preventative maintenance program deals with your vehicle's fluids. Your car needs these fluids to keep running smoothly and prevent overheating. Most of our fluid change services are completed quickly so you can get back on the road in Bloomington, IN. Our technicians are happy to monitor and refill your engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, brake fluid, anti-freeze, power steering and wiper fluids. We also perform checks on your radiator to ensure there are no small leaks caused by stones and other road debris.
The next area of our program deals with the filters in your car. Whether filtering oil, fuel, or air, your car's engine and drivetrain rely on pure ingredients free from power-robbing particles. Your vehicle's fuel system, for example, wants only the purest gasoline or diesel. When microscopic particles build up in the system over time they reduce its efficiency and cause issues like decreased gas mileage. The same goes for your engine's air filter. An engine needs a mix of fuel and air to create combustion, and that can't happen if your motor can't breathe. Regularly changing your car's filters will prevent this from occurring. AutoChoice Service Center will make sure all your car's filters are flowing smoothly and clear, as well as the often-overlooked cabin air filter which can make a huge difference in how pleasant a car is to be inside.
Tire balancing is an important area of preventative maintenance where we excel. If your car's tires are out of balance, they could be putting undue strain on components in the suspension, braking, and drivetrain systems, which can cost you greatly further down the road. Ensuring a smooth ride with professionally balanced wheels and tires is a much cheaper, easier, and safer way to make sure your car stays on the road, while ensuring a long life for your tires.
Your car's timing belts are extremely important to examine during the course of preventative maintenance. There are a number of events that need to take place for one full revolution of your car's engine. These belts ensure that they all line up with each other, and occur at exactly the right moment. Should the belts become damaged or break, the events can fall out of sync and happen at the wrong time, which can be seriously detrimental to the health of your engine and your car overall. AutoChoice Service Center ensures that all your car's belts are healthy, and that all of those events keep happening at exactly the right time.
If you want AutoChoice Service Center to make sure that your vehicle is well-equipped to continue transporting you safely for years to come, call us at 812-339-9898, or visit us in Bloomington, IN so we can schedule a time to take a look at it!

Had a leak and it turned out to be a cracked reservoir. These guys instantly found the problem and took care of it. Highly recommend!

I am new to the area and got an oil change at the local dealership. I picked my car up from the dealership and was told it needed a brand new steering gear and much more that would cost me over $1800. I called my tech from back home since my car is only 2 years old and he told me to get a second opinion because it did not sound right. I called AutoChoice and explained my situation to Lloyd Nichols. He was very honest and upfront with me. They got my car in just two days later to just look it over for me to make sure it was safe. There was nothing wrong with my car that the dealership claimed. Lloyd was very honest, professional, and in the business to do good. I will be making this my Service Center for the rest of my time living in Bloomington. They looked at my car free of charge and then gave me a quote of about $1200 less than the dealership if I actually did need that work. I would trust them with my every car need. Great People!
