Here’s More on Our Most Popular Services

  • A/C – Air Conditioning

    A/C – Air Conditioning

    Your vehicle’s air conditioning system provides you with a comfortable ride come summer and helps prevent driver fatigue. It’s also true that if your A/C isn’t working properly, you’ll not only be sweating, you could be damaging additional air conditioning system components. For instance, an A/C system operating on low refrigerant due to a leak will eventually damage the compressor—an expensive A/C repair we can help you avoid. Come to Gil’s if your A/C isn’t working or isn’t performing as it should.

  • Brake Inspection, Service & Repair

    Brake Inspection, Service & Repair

    You must be able to rely on your vehicle’s braking system to give you maximum stopping power when you need it, so if you’re experiencing any symptoms of a brake problem, such as squealing, grinding, or slow braking response time, it’s time for a brake inspection, and probably a brake repair. If you come to us ASAP, it’s likely the repair will be simpler and less expensive than if you wait and allow a small issue to damage other brake system components. Our mechanics are brake experts, trained to precisely service and repair all brake systems.

  • Diagnostics & Check Engine Light

    Diagnostics & Check Engine Light

    If your check engine light is on, Gil’s Safety Service has the equipment and skill to properly diagnose the issue and handle any necessary repairs. A thorough check engine light diagnostic is more than just connecting a scanner to your vehicle and pulling trouble codes. That’s because a code does not always indicate exactly what is wrong with your car. In the Ridgewood area, our mechanics are known for their diagnostic capabilities, and figuring out and fixing precisely what is wrong with the vehicles we service.

  • Oil Change / Lube Service

    Oil Change / Lube Service

    No one can over-emphasize the importance of regular oil changes. When oil breaks down over time, it becomes less effective as a lubricant, which means parts of your engine will rub together and wear out, potentially leading to the need for expensive repairs and replacements. As your car ages, routine lube service becomes even more important to prevent loss of performance and efficiency. When you come to Gil’s Safety Service for an oil change, we promise to make it as quick and convenient as possible.

  • Scheduled Maintenance

    Scheduled Maintenance

    Scheduled preventive maintenance is the care and protection of your vehicle against potential major auto repairs. Vehicle manufacturer maintenance intervals are also designed to improve the reliability, durability, and resale value of your car or truck. Depending on your vehicle’s service interval mileage, our mechanics may inspect the function of your steering and suspension components, fluids, filters, belts and hoses, and more to help ensure your vehicle functions efficiently.

  • Wheel Alignment & Wheel Balance

    Wheel Alignment & Wheel Balance

    Wheel alignments and wheel balancing keep your car running safely and efficiently by reducing tire wear, improving gas mileage, and promoting safer driving conditions. When left untreated, wheel alignment problems have the potential to turn into steering and suspension issues because driving with wheels out of alignment not only puts stress on your tires but also on suspension components. We’re alignment experts at Gil’s—our mechanics will make sure any alignment or balance issues you’re experiencing are totally smoothed out.
