Jumper Cables




Your car's electrical system powers everything from the ignition and fuel systems to your accessories, such as the radio, headlights, and wipers. The electrical system is, in turn, powered by the engine. Here are the three key components of the electrical system.

Belts and Hose Inspection

Vibration, contamination, and exposure to heat make belts and hoses wear out faster than any other components in your car. That's why regular inspections are so important. Here are the types of belts and hoses in your vehicle, along with their applications.

Computerized Engine Analysis

In order to meet Federal Exhaust Emission and Fuel Economy regulations, today's vehicles are equipped with highly sophisticated electronic engine control systems. These systems do not require periodic adjustments. The only services required on a scheduled basis are spark plug and filter replacement. Tune-ups, as we once knew them, are no longer necessary.

Cooling System Maintenance

The following components are inspected. Their condition is recorded and compared to the manufacturer's specs. We then make recommendations based on the Motorist Assurance Program Uniform Inspection Guidelines.

Disc Brake Service

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.

Heating and Air Conditioning

Your car's engine is the power source for both the heating and air conditioning systems. The systems also share other components, as the diagram below shows. Here's what happens when you flip on the heat or the air conditioner.

Oil Changes and Lubes

Chances are the engine is the most expensive component of your vehicle, so it makes good sense to take care of it. Fortunately, that’s very easy to do. Simply by having your oil and oil filter changed on a regular basis you can protect your engine’s inner parts and maximize its service life. (The oil and filter should be replaced as often as recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer. You’ll find that suggested interval in your owner’s manual.)

Oil Recycling

You can do so much good by doing something so simple: taking your used motor oil to Smalley Automotive for recycling. 

New Jersey's Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery estimates that, each year, up to 50 million gallons of used motor oil are discarded improperly - and illegally - in the state’s storm sewers, rivers, lakes, garbage cans, even directly onto the ground. This dumping adds dangerous chemicals to our soil and waterways, including lead, zinc, chromium, arsenic, chlorides, cadmium, and chlorinated compounds.

Shocks and Struts

The primary function of your vehicle'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 can result in a deterioration of handling and accelerated tire wear. Vehicle alignment is closely tied to the condition of the suspension and steering systems.

Tire Alignment

Tire alignment is a term that refers to the position of each tire and/or wheel relative to your car and all your other tires. When properly aligned, your tires point in precisely the same direction, moving your vehicle over the road as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

Tire Balancing

What is tire balancing and why is it necessary? When an object spins as quickly as a tire does, even a slight difference in weight on some part of the object (a heavy spot) can affect its operation. In fact, it takes only a quarter of an ounce of extra weight on any part of a tire to throw it out of balance!

Tire Repair 

It's easy to forget about your tires, until one of them needs repair. Here are a few important things you should know about tire repair and extending the service life of your tires.

Tire Rotation

For many drivers, a new set of tires represents a sizeable investment. Fortunately, regularly scheduled maintenance can maximize your return on that investment. When it comes to your new set of Goodyear, Cooper, Kelly or Dunlop tires, the maintenance is very simple, very effective, and very affordable, if not free! It’s called tire rotation.

Transmission Maintenance

Vehicles with automatic transmissions require transmission fluid. It protects the transmission from running too hot, especially during strenuous conditions such as towing or driving up steep hills. If you will be putting more driving stress than normal on your car, it's important to have the vehicle inspected and serviced to prevent the transmission from overheating. Completely flushing and replenishing your transmission fluid requires a specially designed machine.
