Oil Change for BMW, Mercedes, Audi, VW and MiniIf you want your car to last, regular oil and filter changes are the most important service you can do. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. While synthetic oils don’t break down as rapidly as conventional oils, they still become contaminated. To maintain optimum performance, we recommend changing your oil and filter every 5,000 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. To exceed the manufacturer’s specifications, we use only factory-certified MOTUL oil and OEM filters. Call the expert team at SST Auto at (203) 730-0311 to schedule your maintenance services today.Contact Us for All Your Automotive Service Needs
Engine Repair and Service for BMW, Mercedes, Audi, VW and MiniAny car part manufacturer will tell you that preventive maintenance is critical to the part's lifespan. Like other auto parts, car engines aren't built to last forever. However, you can increase the engine's lifespan by performing regular preventive maintenance. The easiest way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy is to provide regular engine maintenance for your vehicle.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 potential engine damage. This is especially critical for finely-tuned performance vehicles from Porsche. Make sure your Porsche’s fuel injection system is maintained properly for optimum performance and fuel economy.Engine Replacement With modern automobiles, engine failure is rare. However, it can still happen, whether from a lack of maintenance, an internal component failure, or simply from the wear and tear of high mileage. If [...]

Tire and Wheel Service for BMW, Mercedes, Audi, VW and MiniOne of the most important components of your car in terms of safety and performance are your tires and wheels. Think about your tires for a second. Your entire 2-ton vehicle is contacting the pavement through four small little patches. You depend on those little patches of rubber to accelerate, turn, brake and absorb the imperfections in the road. We routinely check your tires for wear, both normal and abnormal. Worn tires do not give you the same level of performance, especially in rain, and can cause hydroplaning, skidding on turns and longer braking distances. A wheel out of balance or an alignment problem can cause uneven wear and will dramatically shorten your tire life, in addition to causing an annoying vibration when you drive. If you need new tires, we will give you our recommended options for replacement. Our expert tire technicians will mount and high-speed balance your new tires on our state-of-the-art tire equipment and reset your Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Considering the climate here in the Northeast, and considering your driving requirements, we often recommend two sets of wheels and tires: a summer set with summer or all-season tires, and a [...]
