State Inspection Sticker

All Texas registered vehicles are required to receive an annual inspection.

Diesel powered vehicles and motorcycles are exempt from the emissions standards, but are still required to have the annual safety inspection.

Below is a list of safety items that are checked in order to receive a valid state inspection sticker:

• Horn
• Windshield Wipers
• Mirrors
• Steering
• Seat Belts
• Brake System
• Tires
• Wheel Assembly

Air Filter Service

The engine air filtration system aids in filtering the air's contaminants and helps to ensure the correct air/fuel mixture.

The Engine Air Filtration System may consist of the following components:

• Engine Air Filter
• Breather Element, if equipped
• PCV Valve, if equipped

The Engine Air Filter reduces harmful dirt particles from entering the engine's air intake system where they may cause engine damage.

The Breather Element helps filter the air pulled into the engine crankcase by the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system or a metered orifice.

The PCV Valve or metered orifice regulates the flow of crankcase fumes into the intake manifold so they can be burned and help maintain proper cankcase pressure.

As engine air filtration components become restricted, airflow is reduced, which could lead to poor acceleration, reduced engine performance, reduced fuel economy, oil leaks as well as other issues.

As part of the Kwik Kar 20 point oil change service, we visually inspect the engine air filtration system components and recommend replacement, as necessary.

Kwik Kar recommends an air filter service every 12,000 miles or 12 months.

Air Conditioning Service

A good air conditoning system is a must in hot weather, humid conditions like rainstorms, when pollution levels are high and for properly defogging your windows (removes moisture in the air). Trust Kwik Kar to keep you cool.

We offer a special air conditioning performance check service to identify any leaks or mechanical problems. Regardless of vehicle manufacturer, our technicians are equipped to diagnose and repair your vehicles air conditioning system.

Take advantage of our A/C service to maximize the output and efficiency of your air conditioning system.

• Inspect system for leaks (hoses, couplings, valves, evaporator, etc.)
• Recover any old refrigerant
• Remove refrigerant and store in an environmentally safe storage and recycling unit
• Evacuate the system - minimum 30 minutes
• Inspect and adjust drive belt tension
• Clean condenser fins if needed
• Remove moisture which can cause a chemical reaction with the refrigerant resulting in corrosion, contamination and eventual system failure
• Test compressor operation
• Fill with proper O.E. amount of refrigerant (refrigerant extra)

Battery Maintenance

Kwik Kar offers customers the value-added benefit of a battery service. This is the most inclusive starting and charging system check and battery installation process in the industry and includes:

• A full analysis of your battery’s condition, including its state of charge and ability to hold a charge.

• An inspection and analysis of the car’s starting and charging system, including the starter, the alternator and the voltage regulator.

• A cleaning of the battery’s connection and cable ends, as well as an application of corrosion protection.

• Installation of a new battery if purchased from a Kwik Kar.

In order to choose the best battery for your needs, you should consider the following: vehicle manufacturer’s specifications, driving habits, and any additional accessories, such as extra lighting, stereos, CBs, etc.

Most customers agree more power is better. That is why they often choose to exceed the bare minimum power requirements of their vehicle’s manufacturer.

Kwik Kar recommends battery maintenance every 12,000 miles or 12 months.

Cabin Air Filter Service

The inside of your car is six times more polluted than the outside air. Couple that with the fact that people usually spend around 21 hours per week in their cars, and a lot of pollution is being breathed in. Luckily, vehicle manufacturers are now equipping cars with cabin air filters.

A cabin air filter, installed at Kwik Kar, can block 99.5% of the pollutants entering your vehicle. The electrostatically charged filter works like a magnet to stop pollen, dust and other airborne contaminants in their tracks. Have yours changed today and breathe more easily.

The power steering rack which can cost as much as $1,000 to replace.

Radiator Flush Service

Cooling system failure is the leading cause of mechanical failure while driving on the highway. And if your cooling system fails, your engine and transmission could suffer major stress-related damage.

The benefits of a Kwik Kar Radiator Flush Service:

• Provides the best method of factory recommended cooling system service.

• Protects agains coolent contamination.

• Removes rust and scale deposits that can cause overheating and breakdown.

• Protects against cooling system leaks.

A standard drain and fill replaces only about half of the contaminated coolant. A Kwik Kar Radiator Flush Service removes up to 95% of contaminated coolant and replaces it with fresh coolant, plus proprietary product that can help prevent minor leaks, foaming and corrosion.

Serpentine Belt Service

Imagine your car without the air conditioner compressor, air pump, alternator, cooling fan, power steering pump, water pump, and other accessories. That's exactly what you'll have if your serpentine belt snaps. So it's important to have it inspected regularly, and replaced according to your manufacturer's recommended schedule.

As part of the complete maintenance check you receive with every full-service oil change, we visually inspect your car's serpentine belt. If it has more than four cracks per inch in the ribbed section of the belt, and/or cracks that penetrate more than halfway through the thickness of the belt, it should be replaced.

Still, the serpentine belt's appearance doesn't always reveal whether it's on the verge of failure. Be sure to have it replaced on schedule — no matter how it looks. For most vehicles, this only takes about 10 to 15 minutes.

Transmission Service

Over 90% of all automatic transmission failures are due to overheating and fluid contamination.

The Problem

Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) services are often neglected and even when performed, are often incomplete. This can lead to automatice transmission shifting problems and premature repairs or replacement.

• 90% of automatic tramission failures are due to overheating and fluid contamination.

• A typical transmission drain and refill service replaces only 40% of the old contaiminated ATF.
- The remainder is trapped inside valve bodies, the torque converter and transmission cooler lines.
- New ATF from a conventional drain and refill service can often loosen damaging sludge and varnish deposits leading to shift problems and even transmission failure.
- Automatic transmission replacement can cost $2,000 or more.

The Solution

Take care of you automatice transmission by routinely performing Kwik Kar's Transmission Flush Service. This service utilizes patented equipment and specially formulate chemicals to solve the problems often associated with conventional drain and refill services.

• Removes 95% of the used contaminated fluid.

• A specially formulated Transmission Flush chemical safely removes harmful sludge and varnish deposits which are removed with the old fluid.

• Proprietary conditioning chemicals are added to the new ATF to:
- Help extend transmission fluid life.
- Smooth rough or hard shifting problems.
- Help revitalize seals and o-rings to help stop and prevent leaks.

• Kwik Kar's unique transmission flush equipment carriers both patents and is approved by major vehicle manufacturers.
