PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

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 Becker Auto Repair, 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 Alexandria, MN. 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. Becker Auto Repair 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. Becker Auto Repair 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 Becker Auto Repair to make sure that your vehicle is well-equipped to continue transporting you safely for years to come, call us at 320-762-8060, or visit us in Alexandria, MN so we can schedule a time to take a look at it!

    -Mike E.

  • We brought our truck here because the check engine light came on and it was not running quite right. These guys did the diagnostics & it turned out to be a misfire due to a worn out ignition component. All they did was replace all of the old and worn out components with new ones and our truck still starts and runs like new even with 254,000 miles. Thanks for all of your help, everything is still working top notch to this day!
    -Leon K.

  • Thank you so much! Our water pump went out and no one could fit us in to replace it while headed down to Minneapolis. Not only did they make time in their schedule, but also provided us with rides to and from the shop. True sign of awesome client service, added to a job well done at a reasonable price...you have our two thumbs up!!!
    -Gail K.

    -Dana R.

  • I would like to say thank you to Becker Auto in Alexandria. We had our oil changed at an area dealership after work tonight and they said our serpentine belt was bad, would be over $250 to replace it, and would take over an hour. We thought we would stop by Becker Auto to see if they could fix it in the morning. It was 5:28 and they close at 5:30. They said let’s do it now. Thirty-five minutes later we were out the door for less than $100. Thank you so much!!
    -Larry S.

  • Great place and they are very helpful! I trust them completely which in this day and age is hard to find! I recommend them to everyone!
