Preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure your vehicle stays reliable, and lets you avoid major repairs as well as the expenses that come with them. At Franklin Auto Service, we provide a complete preventative maintenance program, and carry all the necessary parts and expertise to take care of the little jobs that let you avoid the big ones. Choose from a comprehensive range of the fluids, oils, filters, and belts that your vehicle needs to keep running happily and healthily. Relax while your ride is inspected by our highly-trained technicians, and rest assured that it'll keep running smoothly for miles and miles.
The first part of our preventative maintenance program deals with your vehicle's fluids. Your car needs these fluids to keep running smoothly and prevent overheating. Most of our fluid change services are completed quickly so you can get back on the road in Franklin, MI. Our technicians are happy to monitor and refill your engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, brake fluid, anti-freeze, power steering and wiper fluids. We also perform checks on your radiator to ensure there are no small leaks caused by stones and other road debris.
The next area of our program deals with the filters in your car. Whether filtering oil, fuel, or air, your car's engine and drivetrain rely on pure ingredients free from power-robbing particles. Your vehicle's fuel system, for example, wants only the purest gasoline or diesel. When microscopic particles build up in the system over time they reduce its efficiency and cause issues like decreased gas mileage. The same goes for your engine's air filter. An engine needs a mix of fuel and air to create combustion, and that can't happen if your motor can't breathe. Regularly changing your car's filters will prevent this from occurring. Franklin Auto Service will make sure all your car's filters are flowing smoothly and clear, as well as the often-overlooked cabin air filter which can make a huge difference in how pleasant a car is to be inside.
Tire balancing is an important area of preventative maintenance where we excel. If your car's tires are out of balance, they could be putting undue strain on components in the suspension, braking, and drivetrain systems, which can cost you greatly further down the road. Ensuring a smooth ride with professionally balanced wheels and tires is a much cheaper, easier, and safer way to make sure your car stays on the road, while ensuring a long life for your tires.
Your car's timing belts are extremely important to examine during the course of preventative maintenance. There are a number of events that need to take place for one full revolution of your car's engine. These belts ensure that they all line up with each other, and occur at exactly the right moment. Should the belts become damaged or break, the events can fall out of sync and happen at the wrong time, which can be seriously detrimental to the health of your engine and your car overall. Franklin Auto Service ensures that all your car's belts are healthy, and that all of those events keep happening at exactly the right time.

What People Say About Us
Franklin Auto Service has my highest recommendation! The mechanics literally saved our vacation. Our car was making strange noises and we needed to travel to Petosky the next day. I brought the car in at 2pm. The issue was diagnosed in 30 seconds and the repair was made before they closed at six. They went above and beyond to help us get our car ready for our trip. I will always be indebted to them for this.
Had my vehicle towed to Franklin Auto thinking I was having issues with my alternator. Darryl found out that the issue was a dead battery and faulty fuel gauge sensors. Very honest mechanics who don't tale advantage of their customers. I will definitely bring my vehicles back to Darryl
They could not have been more wonderful. I called just before Memorial Day Weekend with a possible safety concern. I mentioned in passing that my husband would stay back from our travels and come up if/when the SUV was ready to avoid disappointing my sons by delaying their long-awaited trip. The owner said he couldn't allow that to happen and evaluated the SUV right away. It turned out, we needed new brakes, and had a tire with a nail in it that may have gone flat in the middle of our car trip. He also managed to get the work done the same day, without inconveniencing the other customers - He contacted the customer ahead of us, who said he didn't need his vehicle back that same day. So, on top of the excellent work performed - and the reasonable rates charged - this business cares about the kids of the community. We will be bringing our vehicles here for everything. Thank you!!
I will be going back to Franklin Auto Service for all of my repairs. They did a fantastic job fixing my wheel bearing. My exhaust was also resting on my sway bar and they were able to weld it back in place for only $60. I especially appreciated that the inspection was very thorough and it aligned with what I knew was already wrong with the car. I trust these guys are honest and the price is fair. My only complaint was they had the car for a couple days before working on it, but ultimately they deserve 5 stars for their honesty and quality.
Personable and very fairly-priced, I was very impressed by their professionalism and quick turnaround time. I will gladly go back again for all my future car service needs.
First time customer, they diagnosed the issues with my car, called me for my approval to get it fixed. The car was ready in the time frame quoted. The prices they quoted were fair in my opinion. They were honest to tell me that just 3 of my 4 tires needed changing. Was a good experience on the whole. Will definitely go back.
