A regular air conditioning service for your vehicle checks for faults, refrigerant leaks, a faulty compressor, and drive belt tension.
If your vehicle's temperature does not feel as cold as it used to, then your air conditioning may need servicing as the refrigerant gas that is used to operate the system drains over time. Most problems of this type can be corrected fairly easily by a leak check of your system followed by a complete refill or recharge of your air conditioning refrigerant.
By having your auto air conditioning recharged with refrigerant and lubricant every two years, you can be confident that it will continue operating at its most efficient and economical levels.
If your air conditioning isn’t running efficiently, needs a re-gas, or you haven’t had it serviced for a while, give us a call!
STEERING & SUSPENSION
At Automotive Solutions of Jenison, we can efficiently diagnose and repair your steering and suspension to guarantee that your vehicle is operating at its best.
If a suspension component is loose or damaged, your vehicle might handle unpredictably on the road, and ride more harshly than normal. If your steering is misaligned, fuel efficiency can be decreased and it can potentially cause uneven tire wear.
Our experienced team can supply and fit tires for all makes and models. For any steering, suspension or tire needs, contact us today.

Oil has many important functions: lubrication to avoid wear, rust prevention, and reducing heat caused by friction in the moving parts of your engine.
Once it was recommended that you should check your oil every time you fill up your gas – this is no longer necessary - but in modern vehicles, the oil level and its condition should still be checked periodically as part of a proper maintenance schedule.
Automotive Solutions of Jenison changes the oil as part of every full car service and we always follow the recommended service schedule from the vehicle's manufacturer.
We always use quality oils and premium WIX(NAPA) oil filter chosen to best suit your vehicle. If you have a specific oil request, we are always happy to discuss your options - please talk to us when you call to book your appointment.
We can perform log book service, and more, on a wide range of makes and models right here in Jenison - simply call us today and tell us about your car and your last service and we can give you a quote today.
