Complete Computer Diagnostics
Vehicles’ computers operate everything from air conditioning, radios, air bags, alarm systems, anti-lock braking systems, traction control, ride control, cruise control, analog and digital gauges, automatic transmissions, emission and engine controls. These computers can cost from $250 to as much as $1,500 depending on what they control.
Instead of using proper diagnostic procedures, some do-it-yourselfers and shops without the technical experience resort to trial and error parts swapping when they don’t know how to repair computer and performance issues. Since car dealers and parts suppliers refuse to allow the return of electronic components (due to possible damage) that may leave you, the consumer, with expensive parts you didn’t need. In fact, manufacturers have reported that 80% of all returned computers were found to be okay.
Avoid unnecessary repair and parts costs! We have the latest in computerized diagnostic equipment, a computerized information system and experienced ASE Master Certified Technicians who are trained to properly care for your vehicle.
Our complete computer diagnostics can save you money by correctly diagnosing your vehicle’s problems right from the start.
A properly functioning Powertrain Control Module will prevent such problems and ensure you will spend more time on the road then in the shop. If you feel you’re having a drivability or PCM related issue, or any other type of problem contact It’s About Time Automotive right away to set up an appointment.
Complete Safety Analysis
During a vehicle’s regular operation, there are many things such as the weather, objects on the road, the road itself and usual wear and tear, that can cause damage that goes unnoticed. Such damage can affect the performance of your vehicle. To find out and fix this damage, you need to take your vehicle to an expert who can run a thorough vehicle safety check. The vehicle safety check covers:
- Engine and Transmission
- Brake Fluid
- Vehicle Lamp
- Electrical Systens
Today’s engines are highly advanced and difficult to troubleshoot. That’s why we use sophisticated engine diagnostic equipment and vehicle computer data to pinpoint hidden problems and worn parts. Depending on the age and model of your vehicle, your engine tune-up service includes:
- A thorough inspection of your entire engine and its mechanisms
- Replacement of faulty or worn electronic engine components such as oxygen sensors and electronic control module components
- Replacement of faulty or worn spark plugs, air filters, and fuel filters
- Adjustment of your vehicle’s idle and timing
- Adjustment of the clutch (on vehicles equipped with a manual transmission)

Once you experience an S&J oil change, you’ll see firsthand why millions of motorists turn each year to us for “asset protection.”

- The tread or sidewall is cracked, cut or snagged deep enough to show cord or fabric
- The tire has a bulge or split
- The tire has a puncture, cut, or other damage that can’t be repaired

Steering & Suspensions
To maintain precise control, your car’s wheels need to be in firm contact with the road at all times. That’s where your suspension system comes in. It needs to be able to absorb bumps smoothly and steer properly, which in turn requires a fully functioning suspension system with proper wheel alignment.
Whether your vehicle has a conventional suspension system with shock absorbers or a strut-based system (which is typical in many front-wheel-drive cars), we have the know-how to diagnose and repair any problem. We also have the equipment necessary to correct any alignment issues we might find.

Why you should have a Fuel System Cleaning
Deposits building in the combustion chamber and intake valves can alter the engine’s compression ratio, causing it to knock, run-on, and be hard to start
Stalling, hesitation, and loss of power are the most common symptoms with fuel injector deposits, which can interrupt the delivery of fuel and disrupt the spray pattern
Stop in to see if your vehicle is in need of a Fuel System Cleaning.
