  • Air Conditioning Repair

    Air Conditioning Repair

    A properly maintained air conditioning system can help keep you comfortable on hot summer days. Did you know that a properly functioning A/C system is also instrumental in helping to defrost your windshield on those cold, damp winter days as well? A properly functioning A/C system helps to dehumidify the air passing through the defrosting system enabling your windows to quickly clear and stay fog free. If your car's air conditioning system does not seem to be operating as efficiently as it once did, let us perform a full system performance check for you. We can test the system, find the leaks, and recharge the system so you get the proper operation you deserve. Let Ralco Auto Mechanics inspect your vehicle's air conditioning today.

  • Air Filter

    Air Filter

    Your car or light truck’s air filter is critical in keeping unwanted, engine damaging dirt and debris out of your engine. What you may not know, is that a dirty, plugged air filter can cause big problems with power and fuel efficiency. Your air filter should be checked at least every 12 months or 12,000 miles. At Ralco Auto Mechanics, we check it at every oil change and recommend it when replacement is necessary.

  • Alternator Repair

    Alternator Repair

    Most people know that it is the battery that allows your vehicle to be started when it is not running. Many people are not aware that once your car is running, it is your alternator that takes care of running all of the systems on your car that require electricity. This includes your headlights, heating/air conditioning system, and your car audio just to name a few. The alternator is responsible for keeping the battery charged, so it is always ready to start the vehicle after it has been shut off. If your alternator fails, the battery’s reserve power will quickly be depleted causing your car to die or fail to start after it has been turned off. Items such as a broken pulley, a loose belt, or broken and corroded wiring can also cause the charging system not to function properly. If you suspect a problem with your starting or charging system, have Ralco Auto Mechanics test and service it today.

  • Batteries

    Batteries

    Your battery supplies the electrical service to start your car when it is not running. It also serves as a reserve capacitor to protect sensitive electronics on your car from voltage spikes originating from the alternator. A bad battery will usually cause your car not to start, but in extreme failures, it can cause your car to die on the road. Extreme weather conditions such as heat or freezing cold temperatures can cause a weak battery to fail. Have your battery tested to check its performance. If the results indicate your battery is in need of replacement, Ralco Auto Mechanics can quickly provide a suitable replacement.

  • Belts & Hoses

    Belts & Hoses

    Your vehicle’s belts and hoses play a critical role in the proper operation of your cooling system, air conditioning system, charging system and more. Old hoses can become cracked and dry rotted, causing them to squeal or break. Radiator and heater hoses will deteriorate with age and can get hard and crack or become soft and porous leading to system leakage and severe engine problems like overheating. A broken belt can lead to loss of power steering, failure to charge, or engine overheating, leaving you stranded on the road. It's important to have these components checked at least annually and replaced when needed. The typical life span of a belt or hose is seldom over 5 years. Your friends at Ralco Auto Mechanics can inspect your belts and hoses and tell you if they are in need of replacement.

  • Brake Repair

    Brake Repair

    Your brake system transmits the force you apply to the brake pedal, down hydraulic lines to the pistons in the brake calipers and wheel cylinders at your wheels. This force creates friction between the brake pads or shoes and the brake rotors or drums. This friction creates the stopping force needed to quickly and safely stop your car. If you're experiencing brake symptoms such as a squealing or grinding noise, a pulsating brake pedal, an abnormal amount of brake pedal travel, or a red brake light indicator, it is time to have your brakes checked as soon as possible. At Ralco Auto Mechanics, we can quickly and professionally solve your problem and get you back on the road safely.

  • Cooling System Repair

    Cooling System Repair

    Your car’s cooling system is designed to bring your vehicle up to operating temperature quickly while preventing it from running too hot. Your vehicle uses antifreeze to absorb heat from the engine and move it to the radiator where it can be cooled. Your water pump is tasked with creating the pressure to circulate the coolant through the hoses from the engine to the radiator. The thermostat is used to regulate the flow of the coolant from the engine to the radiator to maintain a proper operating temperature of around 190 degrees. If any of these components are not operating correctly, your car may run too cool causing poor performance and fuel economy while polluting the air around it. It may also cause the engine to run too hot and overheat causing possible severe engine damage. If you have concerns about the proper operation of your cooling system, have it inspected and serviced today at Ralco Auto Mechanics.

  • Engine Repair and Diagnostics

    Engine Repair and Diagnostics

    The check engine lamp can signal a variety of issues. The lights you should pay close attention to are check oil/oil level low, oil pressure low, and check engine. However, if any dash lights continue to stay on after you start the engine it is time for you to contact us for an engine diagnostics service. Typically when light switches stay on in the dash it is the first sign of engine problems. Ralco Auto Mechanics can run a complete engine diagnostics test and take care of your engine repairs.

  • Fluid Inspection

    Fluid Inspection

    In order to keep your vehicle running smoothly, it is important to check your fluid levels regularly. It is important to check fluids such as coolant, engine oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, and windshield washer fluid. Your car is a big investment. Checking the fluid levels and condition regularly helps safeguard against breakdown, mechanical damage, and even possible accidents. Let Ralco Auto Mechanics examine and change your fluid levels today.

  • Oil Changes

    Oil Changes

    Your oil removes heat from the engine and lubricates its moving parts. Changing your vehicle’s oil routinely is one of the most important things you can do to promote long term vehicle performance. As you drive, the oil pump circulates oil into your oil filter and throughout your engine. The oil filter cleans dirt and deposits out of the oil, keeping your engine clean and protected. As time passes, the oil filter will begin to get clogged with this debris and will no longer be able to keep the oil clean for the engine. Most manufacturers recommend changing the oil between 3,000 and 5,000 miles to insure long life and maximum performance. At Ralco Auto Mechanics, we understand the importance of an oil change.

  • Preventative Maintenance

    Preventative Maintenance

    Many parts on your vehicle (including fluids, spark plugs, brake pads and rotors) have a limited service life and need to be serviced at pre-determined intervals. Regular preventative maintenance is likely the single most important thing you can do to keep your car running safely and efficiently. Routine services like oil changes, tire pressure checks, and scheduled inspections are a great way to keep your car running properly and catch problems before they become serious. Check your owner’s manual for detailed information on how often to inspect or replace things such as oil and filter, transmission fluid, brake fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, fuel, air and cabin filters, drive or timing belts, and more. At Ralco Auto Mechanics, we have the tools and expertise to properly service your vehicle on a regular basis.

  • Steering and Suspension Repair

    Steering and Suspension Repair

    Your vehicle’s steering and suspension are designed to create maximum traction between your tires and the road. This provides steering stability, proper handling, and good comfort. These components are ground zero at connecting your vehicle to the harsh roads and are thus prone to wearing out or even breaking, possibly leaving you stranded. Steering and suspension systems are key safety components and should be inspected annually or if you are experiencing problems such as uneven tire wear, excessive noise vibration or bouncing, loss of contact with the road, or have symptoms of the vehicle not wanting to track straight down the road. If you need your suspension checked, let the qualified technicians at Ralco Auto Mechanics quickly identify any problems you may have.

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

    Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

    Your tire pressure monitoring system, often referred to as TPMS, is an electronic system designed to monitor the air pressure in your tires. This system uses real time tire pressure information to alert you if there is a tire pressure problem. If your tire pressure drops to an unsafe level, it will alert you via a light or warning message. Many systems will also tell you which tire is low. Low tire pressure is not only a safety issue, but it will also drastically shorten the life of a tire. Tire pressure sensors are powered by a non serviceable battery and will eventually fail due to low battery voltage. The average lifespan of a tire pressure sensor is 7 to 9 years. It's also recommended that sensors be replaced or properly serviced when new tires are installed. At Ralco Auto Mechanics we have the tools, equipment, training and knowledge to properly service or diagnose your Tire Pressure Monitoring System. We would be happy to handle all of your tire service needs today.

  • Tire Rotation

    Tire Rotation

    While you drive, your tires wear at different rates due to steering. The most notable wear occurs on the front tires. Regular tire rotation can keep the wear on your tires even, improving fuel economy, ensuring proper handling, and extending the life of your tires. Depending on the vehicle, your tires should be rotated every 6,000 to 10,000 miles. The tire experts at Ralco Auto Mechanics can quickly and professionally rotate your tires at your convenience.

  • Transmission Service

  • Tune Up

    Tune Up

    As recently as the early 1990’s, a car’s engine required consistent maintenance on a few basic components. Things like spark plugs, distributor points and condensers, valve adjustments, timing adjustments, and carburetor adjustments were needed on an annual basis. It was this qualified need that prompted the industry to coin the phrase “tune up”. Today a tune up refers to just about any combination of events that cause a car to run poorly. Items such as distributorless ignition, computerized engine controls, and fuel injection have completely changed the needs of the modern car. Things like advances in spark plug technology, and the improved efficiency of the combustion system, have increased the time between basic engine maintenance services drastically. What used to be annually has now increased to 60,000 or even 90,000 mile increments. While things like spark plugs, filters and fluids still need to be replaced at regular intervals to keep your car running problem free, most other components are now likely to last the life of the car. If your car is running poorly or has a warning indicator on the dash, trust the pros at Ralco Auto Mechanics in Hialeah, Westage and Miami Springs, FL to pinpoint the problem. We have the tools, equipment and trained experienced technicians to solve the problem quickly and efficiently.
