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 Patterson Performance Inc., 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 Raleigh, NC. 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. Patterson Performance Inc. 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. Patterson Performance Inc. 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 Patterson Performance Inc. to make sure that your vehicle is well-equipped to continue transporting you safely for years to come, call us at 919-872-9459, or visit us in Raleigh, NC so we can schedule a time to take a look at it!

  • I have had Eric work on my vehicles on four different occasions over the past three years and he has treated me exceptionally well and very, very fairly. None of his work has had to be redone or "tweaked" after the fact and the charges were extremely reasonable. Not only was his work terrific but he and Kathy could not have been more gracious. I highly recommend Paterson Performance.

  • Best place to get your Saab serviced. The best because Eric does not give you a hard time about owning a Saab. He understands the passion of loving a true vehicle that rides, handles and performs to its best abilities. He knows your car better than you do!

  • Fantastic shop, the only place I will ever bring my Saab from here on out if/when it needs repairs. Smart mechanics, courteous staff, quick turn-around time, and Zero pressure/hard sell when I couldn't afford all the repairs they noted the car would need in the future!

  • Eric is the best. He's a true mechanic -- not dependent on, on-board diagnostic computers to tell him what's wrong. And he goes the extra mile to make sure any problems get fixed, regardless of difficulty. We take him tough repair cases that stump even factory authorized dealers & specialty shops -- e.g., an exotic foreign-brand power convertible top that interior and body specialists could not get working. We have not found an automobile repair problem he could not solve.
