ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance. It also impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine. Trust the experts at Foster's Advanced Auto Service to help you protect your investment. Call us at 651-635-9890 or visit our shop in New Brighton 55112.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

Diesel
Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:

  • Changing the oil & filter
  • Changing the air filter
  • Changing the fuel filter
  • Bleeding the fuel system
  • Draining the water separators
  • Refilling the urea injection system

You can count on the experts at Foster's Advanced Auto Service to help your diesel engine last a long time.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 651-635-9890 or visit Foster's Advanced Auto Service today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Foster's Advanced Auto Service today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Foster's Advanced Auto Service in New Brighton, MN 55112. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Foster's Advanced Auto Service, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 651-635-9890 or visit Foster's Advanced Auto Service today.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Foster's Advanced Auto Service in New Brighton, MN 55112.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Foster's Advanced Auto Service, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 651-635-9890 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Testimonials

  • Great service, fair prices. They are VERY willing to work with YOUR schedule to make it convenient for you! I?ve already been recommending them!
    -Paula R.

  • Loved the pleasant people working there and they did a quick and quality of a job on my jeep. Very trustworthy and honest.
    -Danielle R.

  • I went in for a routine oil chnage and came out over a K lighter with new brakes all around as well as wheel bearings up front. I knew the brakes were weak, but I didn?t realize how bad. So, why am I not displeased? A technician showed me the rotors and break pads. I had no brakes. Were I not to have them repaired, I would have needed to sign a document indicating I was informed and releasing the company of liability. So, I had the work done and followed the process. What I bought was not only a totally new brake system, but peace-of-mind and absolute confidence that the work was done by the absolute best technician, I must also note that I was treated with comfort and respect through the entire experience. I absolutely trust these people.
    -T.J. W.

  • These guys are the best type of mechanics you can wish for. They are honest and trustworthy. They tell you what needs fixed and do not make you get unnecessary repairs. As a woman who has gotten ripped off by many mechanics in Mpls, I can honestly recommend these guys. They do high quiality work. I am very pleased with the friendly and complete service they provide. I would recommend them to my friends and family anytime. Keep up the good work guys !
    -Wanda K.

  • Needed new shocks and struts for the wife?s car and got a same-day appointment. I had a lower estimate elsewhere prior to coming in, and Foster?s Advanced told me they?d beat it by $50 and get me in and out in one day. They delivered and were great to work with. This is the kind of place I can feel comfortable recommending to others. They deliver what they promise and don?t try to push services you don?t need.
    -Kraig & Lisa

  • I arrived a bit early and yet they still fit me into the schedule and out of there ahead of time. I always receive fast, knowledgeable and friendly service that I can afford. I recommend coming here to all of my co-workers and friends.
    -Vicki K.

  • I have had two car repairs done at Foster?s Advanced Auto Service within the last few weeks, and I have 3 very positive things to report. First of all ? they saved me money, actually saved around $800 from an estimate I had gotten from the car dealer. Second ? they are trustworthy, and keep their word. Even stuck to an original estimate when the work ended up taking longer than planned for. Third ? and very important to me, they are ?Real? people ? made me feel welcome, and comfortable right off the bat, and I really prefer dealing with real people over a ?corporation?. Yup great place to do business!
    -Franky L.

  • I needed to get new brakes and the guys at Foster?s Advanced Auto Service bent over backwards to make it happen. They gave me and my daughter a ride back home while they worked on my vehicle and offered to stay late til I could come back and pick it up. The guys were so nice and really seemed to appreciate my business. The cost was extremely reasonable compared with the price quote I received from other places. I would recommend them to my friends for sure
