When you bring your vehicle to Jsport Autowerks, our techs will go through your vehicle and replace certain parts like spark plugs, ignition coils, etc. to help maintain your vehicle over the life of owning it. Tune-ups help extend the life of your motor.
Oil and Oil Filter Service
Experts recommend changing the oil and oil filter in your vehicle at a minimum of every 3 months or 3,000 miles, whichever is first and depending on the type of motor. Oil changes are an essential way to maximize engine protection for your vehicle.

Our team has the ability to flush the cooling system, conduct a pressure test, check hoses and cap and check connections. If you smell coolant or see any leaks, our techs have the technical knowledge to diagnose your cooling system.

One of our trained air conditioning specialists will inspect your car’s air conditioner, all AC lines, evaporator and compressor for leaks and wear. We also have the proper machines to be able to perform freon recharges for your air conditioning system.
We can remove old worn-out gear oil from the front and rear differential and transfer case and also diagnose driveline issues your vehicle may be experiencing. We can also perform Transmission Services per your manufacturer’s recommendations for your specific vehicle.
Air Induction Cleanup with Walnut Blasting
Our technicians can quickly and effectively clean intakes, ports, intake valves and combustion chambers and install injector cleaning additives. One of these services is commonly referred to as Walnut Blasting or Carbon Cleaning. This can restore lost power and performance and will reduce harmful exhaust emissions.
Power Steering Flush
Our technicians will inspect your power steering including pump, belt, fluid, etc. If you need a Power Steering Service, we can flush worn-out contaminated fluid and install fresh new fluid fortified with a special antioxidant and anti-wear ingredients to prevent expensive possible mechanical failures down the road.
Because brakes don’t go from great to ghastly overnight, it isn’t always easy to discern when yours have reached the point where they can fail and cause you and others harm. That’s why it’s crucial to have one of Jsport’s technicians inspect your brakes as often as we perform your oil changes.
Recommended Factory Maintenance
Check your owner’s manual to see when you should start bringing in your model for new drive belts, timing belts, oil changes, fluid checks and other necessities it requires to keep you on the road. This includes your 30 / 60 / 90k and other services.
Timing Belts and Drive Belts
Most vehicle manufacturers recommend that you replace your timing belt somewhere between 60,000 and 105,000 miles. If you’re near 60k or 105k in miles on your vehicle, have the techs at Jsport Autowerks inspect your belts to see if it’s time to replace them.
Your hoses keep air and fluids running properly through your vehicle. If you see any spots on your driveway or parking spot or smell anything that appears out of the norm we can inspect and pressure test your systems to ensure they are still holding proper pressure and there are no leaks.
Your radiator can stop working for a number of reasons: brittle hoses, damaged water pump, corrosion, leaky fittings, malfunctioning thermostat, and more. You can trust in Jsport to use the proper diagnostic equipment to ensure your cooling system is operating correctly and properly cooling your vehicle.
Steering and Suspension
If your vehicle is pulling to the side while driving, you feel or hear clunks while driving, or you’re feeling something odd when turning, there may be an issue with your steering or suspension. Either way, our techs can investigate the issue for you and determine the cause of the problem as well as offer a solution to fix it.
Check Engine Light and Warning Lights for Other Systems
We take ‘check engine light’ warnings seriously. Although you may have no other indication (beyond the warning light) that your car needs help, it’s always a good idea to stop by and have your vehicle scanned by our industry-leading equipment and check the codes and see what your vehicle is trying to warn you about.
Battery, Alternator, and Starters
Your alternator provides electrical power while the vehicle is running and also recharges the battery that brings your engine to life while starters help get your car started. If your vehicle is experiencing any issues with starting or lights dimming, we can run several tests to see where the problem lies.
Transmission and Clutches
Transmission and Clutch jobs can be big money. Our techs can pull a fluid sample from your transmission and also test drive your vehicle to see if there are any issues with the transmission or clutch and let you know if we can service either part before it gets worse and you have to replace them.
Axles and CV Boots
Vehicle axles usually last a long time—upward of 100,000 miles. However you can hit a bad bump or pothole on the road which could damage them and we recommend your attend to them promptly. Our shop has the ability to inspect your axles and cv boots to ensure grease is holding and your axles are still in good shape.
Air Conditioning Systems
When the Pacific Northwest gets hot and humid, commute times can become long and dreary quickly unless the air conditioning unit in your car is working at peak efficiency. Our techs can recharge or pressure test your air conditioning system if it needs a recharge or has a problem.
If you’re looking to purchase a used vehicle, have our techs inspect it so you know if the vehicle needs any immediate repairs. There’s nothing worse than having a customer stop by that just spent their savings on a down payment and don’t have money for the repairs it needs. Our techs can give you a detailed report of anything they find that appears out of place and also give them to you in order of priority so you know which repairs are needed first. If you’re buying from a dealership, use the detailed report to help get you a lower price on the vehicle or have the dealership include a warranty that covers the recommended repairs our technicians give you.
