When customers are within 25 miles of the original dealer they return to that dealer for warranty repairs. Those repairs are not covered under this program. When customers are more than 25 miles from the original dealer, they call the Federated Nationwide Warranty toll-free number and are routed to a participating location for warranty repair. ASE Certified Master Technicians verify the warranty repairs that are needed with the repairing facility and authorize the repair.
The Federated Nationwide Warranty program pays the warranty repairing facility their posted labor rate and standard book time for the repair. We pay for parts & labor. The customer has no expense in the process! The Federated Nationwide Warranty program sends letters to both the consumer (apologizing for any inconvenience & asking for his or her input) and the original repair facility (letting them know one of their customers had a warranty claim). Most repairs are covered (major engine, major transmission, clutches and differential are excluded).

Air Conditioning Maintenance
It’s the first hot day of the summer. Uncomfortably shifting in your seat, you turn on that long-neglected AC knob, only to discover an unwelcome blast of warm air streaming out from the vents. A bad situation is made worse: that’s when you turn to us – your air conditioning service and repair headquarters. Did you know that without regular maintenance an air conditioner loses about 5% of its original efficiency per year?
Without proper maintenance, your air conditioning unit may be performing poorly!
But there is good news: you can still recover most of that lost efficiency. Schedule an appointment with one of our factory-trained professionals – we understand all aspects of AC repair, from modern computerized components to environmental disposal concerns. Today’s AC systems are fairly complex, and new improvements are always being initiated. That’s why you need to turn to us, the qualified source for everything related to your air conditioning system. The following is a brief schematic of some of the basic components that comprise this system:
Battery Service in Central Florida
We can help you choose the right battery for your vehicle and lifestyle. Our staff can safely and professionally install your battery and get you back on the road. Your car’s electrical system powers everything from the ignition and fuel systems to accessories such as your radio, headlights and wipers. The electrical system is, in turn, powered by the engine.
Here are the three key components of the electrical system
When your car’s engine is off, the battery provides the required power to the rest of the system, as well as during startup (cranking). It also supplements the power from the charging system during periods of high demand.
Belts and Hoses
Exposure to heat, vibration and contamination makes belts and hoses wear out faster than any other components in your car.
That’s why regular inspections are so important. Here are the belt and hose types in your car, along with their applications.
Keep your car running properly
While some accessories in your car are electrically powered by the charging system, others use the engine itself as their power source. The power for these accessories is delivered by a system of pulleys and belts.
Auto Repair for Braking Systems
The brake system is actually composed of two kinds of systems Hydraulics and Friction Materials. Here’s what happens within these systems between the time your foot hits the brake pedal and your car stops.
When pressure is applied to the brake pedal, the master cylinder creates hydraulic pressure which pushes brake fluid to the wheel brakes.
Brake Lines and Hoses
Steel brake lines and high-pressure rubber hoses are the avenues through which the pressurized brake fluid travels.
Wheel Cylinders and Callipers
These are the hydraulic cylinders that apply pressure to the friction materials, causing your car to stop.
Advanced Engine Control
Your modern vehicle’s engine is a highly sophisticated piece of equipment. The days of your father’s gas-guzzler are long gone – instead, Federal Exhaust Emission and Fuel Economy regulations demand that today’s vehicles be equipped with electronic engine control systems, to curb carbon emissions and increase fuel efficiency. With technically-advanced control systems taking the place of simple engine components, common maintenance services such as tune-ups are also a thing of the past. Regular services (such as spark plug and filter replacements) are still required, as well as a computerized analysis of your vehicle’s control computer. Our factory-trained technicians are here to provide these basic services.
Here’s how your modern vehicle’s control computer operates:
A network of sensors and switches convert and monitor engine operating conditions into electrical signals. The computer receives this information, and based on information and instructions coded within this savvy computer program, commands are sent to three different systems: ignition, fuel and emission control. Whenever a problem arises (as seen by that nagging “check engine” light), our service pros check whatever command is prompted, in addition to the status of your engine control computer and sensors. That way you’ll know if your vehicle’s performance is caused by a real problem, or just a sensor/computer issue.

We will have you back on the road, “click-free” in no time!
The axle on your vehicle is the structural component that connects two wheels together on opposite sites. It’s a load-bearing assembly that acts like a central shaft, maintaining the position of the wheels relative to each other and to the vehicle body. The construction of your axle is designed according to what your vehicle is built for; trucks and off-road vehicles are equipped with axles that keep the wheel positions steady under heavy stress (ideal for supporting heavy loads), while conventional axles are constructed for the needs of the general consumer.
But no matter what you drive, remember that your vehicle’s axle must bear the weight of your vehicle (plus any cargo) and the acceleration forces between you and the ground. So when it comes to axle inspection, we are your source for professional, knowledgeable service—essential for the equipment that carries you and your family to wherever you need to go.
Exhaust System Service
Your exhaust system is more than a muffler. It is a series of pipes that run under your car, connected to your muffler and catalytic converter. The main function of your exhaust system is to control noise and to funnel exhaust fumes away from passengers.
In some ways, a car’s exhaust system works like a chimney on your house, directing the by products from burning fuel away from the people inside.
A car’s exhaust system routes waste gases from the engine to the rear of the car, where they are discharged into the atmosphere. Exhaust gases contain dangerous substances such as carbon monoxide, which can be hazardous if allowed to flow into the passenger housing of the car.
The exhaust system also converts pollutants into less harmful by products, reduces the noise of the engine, and directs exhaust gases so they can be used to heat air and fuel before they go into the engine’s cylinders to be burned. Finally, the exhaust system provides just the right amount of back-pressure into the engine to improve its fuel-burning efficiency and increase performance.
Emission Control: Emissions Testing Program
Description: A program designed to periodically check vehicle emissions to ensure they are within limits. Often referred to as an I/M (Inspection/Maintenance) program, they are used in numerous states and areas as required by the Environmental Protection Agency to improve air quality in those areas.
Although the requirement comes from the federal government, states and their associated agencies have some flexibility in the type of test used, vehicle populations to be tested and other program-specific details. Some states run centralized programs that have state-contracted test stations exclusively dedicated to testing. Other states run decentralized programs, where emissions can be tested at local repair facilities. In a few cases, states may run “hybrid” programs using both centralized and decentralized test stations. The latest trend is to incorporate the use of second-generation on-board diagnostics (OBDII) into these programs, in many cases altogether eliminating the need for tailpipe emissions tests.
The Best Maintenance for Your Car- Oil Change
Check the owner’s manual to see if your driving habits are considered to be “severe service.” This type of driving requires more frequent oil changes, warns the Car Care Council. Have the oil changed accordingly, usually every 3,000-5,000 miles. For less wear and tear on the engine, drivers in cold climates (sub-zero driving temperatures) should drop their oil weight from 10-W30 to 5-W30. Your mom and dad would probably suggest simply moving to someplace warmer.
Description: The typical oil filter consists of a high-strength steel housing containing various types of filtering media. An anti-drain back valve prevents oil from running out of the filter when the engine is off. Today’s oil filters have a convenient spin-on design that makes removal and installation easy.
Quality Care for Your Shocks and Struts
Suspension and Steering Systems
The primary function of your car’s suspension and steering systems is to allow the wheels to move independently of the car, while keeping it “suspended” and stable. Any play or uncontrolled motion in these systems results in a deterioration of handling and accelerated tire wear. Vehicle alignment is closely tied to the condition of the suspension and steering systems.
The main components of a Conventional system are:
Steering Gear Box
Tires & Wheels: Tire Rotation
Purpose: Tire rotation helps to equalize tread wear and is critical to gain the maximum life from your tire investment.
Maintenance Tips/Suggestions: Refer to your owner’s manual for the recommended rotation interval and pattern; generally a rotation interval of 6,000 miles is recommended. The rotation pattern varies with different makes and models, which shows the tire locations during rotation. Some vehicles have different size tires on the front and back or directional tires. This limits the locations that a tire may take on the vehicle. When in doubt, check the owner’s manual or consult a professional technician for guidance. Tire rotation time also offers a good opportunity to have the tires and wheels balanced. It’s another step you can take to maximize your tire investment.
Keep Your Transmission Functioning Properly
For those of you who aren’t mechanically savvy, you probably still understand that transmission problems are among the most expensive repairs required for your vehicle. That’s because your transmission is a complex system of gears that transmit mechanical power to your engine, ultimately determining the rate of speed you travel. Transmissions convert this power from the engine so that it can supply high torque at low speeds, in addition to selecting which gears are appropriate based on the driving conditions.
This is especially true with automatic transmissions, by far the most popular transmissions found in the US. Rather than using a clutch to engage the transmission, automatic transmissions use a torque converter (between the engine and transmission) to control the number of gears when driving. Supplying the power to regulate gear action is a demanding task, which is why it’s important for you to contact us, your transmission service specialists.
