Oil Change: Preventive Maintenance in the San Fernando Valley
With our technologically advanced diagnostic tools, we quickly determine how much oil you need to meet manufacturer specifications. Whether your drive a BMW or a Volkswagen, clean oil that turns bad because of the accumulation of dirt and grime at first only causes performance issues. After a few months, the bad oil begins to cause damage to engine parts. Your Mini or Fiat requires clean oil to lubricate all of the parts that drive the engine
The highly trained technicians at Starko Auto Services perform prompt oil changes on European vehicle models to get you quickly back into your daily routine.

Wheel Alignment: When is it Time?
Whether you drive a BMW or a Porsche, driving on city and rural roads can cause wheel alignment problems that require immediate attention. Curbs, potholes, and the age of your vehicle combine to diminish the accuracy of the steering wheel. The certified technicians at Starko Auto Services recommend a wheel alignment check one time per year or for every 12,000 miles you drive a European vehicle.
If you experience any of the following wheel alignment issues, bring your vehicle into our auto shop to receive knowledgeable European auto repair service:
- Uneven tire treads
- Steering wheel does not center when you want to move straight forward
- Car yanks to the left or right
We offer a road test evaluation to determine the cause of your wheel alignment issues, as well as inspect the suspension system and steering wheel parts.
Rotating Tires: Extend The Life of Your Tires in Northridge
Tires eventually lose tread, which diminishes the grip tires have on all types of road surfaces. Tire rotation for your BMW or Mercedes-Benz should be as common as an oil change for your vehicle. Our expert technicians understand the different tire patterns that require different types of rotations. Our European auto service might determine a Porsche needs a front to back and back to front tire rotation, while a Mini might need a more complex type of rotation that moves the tires in a clockwise direction. We recommend a tire rotation at a maximum of 6,000 miles. If you live high traffic areas such as Hollywood or Pasadena, you should consider bringing your vehicle to us for tire rotation every 5,000 miles.
You invest considerable money in your European vehicle, which means you need to bring your car in for experienced auto service at Starko Auto Services. Call our service department today to schedule your free preventive maintenance estimate.
