- Changing the oil & filter
- Changing the air filter
- Changing the fuel filter
- Bleeding the fuel system
- Draining the water separators
- Refilling the urea injection system
You can count on the experts at Complete Auto Center to help your diesel engine last a long time.
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 ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 703-331-0444 or visit Complete Auto Center today.
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Complete Auto Center today.
Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Complete Auto Center in Manassas, VA 20110. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.
Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Complete Auto Center in Manassas, VA 20110.
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Complete Auto Center, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 703-331-0444 or visit Complete Auto Center today.
Kevin, Ray, and the whole team is always great. They explain things before, show you after, offer suggestions, but are clear about options, no pressure, great work. I've been very pleased and highly recommend them.David Moore
Kevin is awesome and honest!! We brought our Nissan Rouge in to him for what has now become a recurring problem. He went out of his way to help us out and provided honest advice on just how much to fix or not fix and if we should get rid of it or run it into the ground. At this time, this will be the last repair for the Nissan, but it wont be the last visit to Complete Auto Center. He has made a customer for life out of us.Brian W.

The true definition of "above and beyond " great costumer service. Great work and fair pricing. Very thorough, transparent and honest . ( which is rare in this industry) long story short i had my engine replaced by complete auto center. I was hesitant at first given this was my first time getting service there and it was major. I had Multiple issues with the new engine and the company's warranty department right out the gate . (All There fault) Kevin was there in battle with me throughout it all . I greatly appreciate everyone there who helped get my truck back on the road!
I am so glad I found this car shop! Definitely going to be my new go to any time I have car troubles. Kevin was amazing from the first time I spoke with him. He was very knowledgeable and gives really great prices. I've called a few shops for estimations on getting a sensor replaced and my brakes fixed. Kevin gave me the best estimate around that wasn't over charged at all like the others. They got my car done really fast. I highly recommend this auto shop if you need to get your car fixed and don't want to be overcharged.
