No one wants to buy a car that is smoke and mirrors. You know the ones; they look great on the inside and outside, but deep down there are repairs that might be needed, that you can’t see just by looking at the vehicle on the ground.
Our technicians can help alleviate this potentially painful experience by doing an extensive vehicle inspection, searching for TSB’s, and identifying any potential problems with the vehicle. We will also note any problems that will need to be repaired if the vehicle were to need a State Inspection.
With this knowledge, it will help you determine if the vehicle is the right purchase for you, and you may even be able to use this knowledge to negotiate a better purchase price!
We live in Maine, and with our beautiful state comes a few months of cold, harsh snowy weather. As an automotive repair shop, we know cars. We also know, that your car has to make it through the winter.
At Rawcliffe’s, we offer a winterization service which includes two basic procedures. The first, is an oil change. Good clean oil protects your engine better in the cold winter months than older, used oil.
The second part, is a comprehensive vehicle inspection. We test components such as the battery, to ensure it has the power to start the car on those -10 degree days. We test the cooling system and heating output.
Some vehicles that use direct-injection have heavy carbon build up on the intake valves. The carbon comes from hot crankcase oil vapors as they are being burnt by the engine. The carbon then builds up as the fuel injectors are located directly in the cylinders instead of the air intake, and fuel does not wash the carbon off the valves. When this carbon builds up, it can create sluggish engine performance, misfires and more as valve performance decreases.
Our walnut blasting services helps to alleviate these problems, by blasting a fine walnut shell mixture into the intake system, to help clean and polish the valves, and restore them to almost new condition.
We can walnut blast just about any direct injected engine as needed, however, some vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing the cylinder heads if carbon build up becomes an issue.
