What condition are your tires in? At Dirk’s Auto Clinic in Crystal River, FL, we want to make sure you can tell. A simple visual inspection is all you need - it’s easy if you know what to look for.

working on a truck on a lift

Failed engine mounts are an irritating issue to live with causing your car or truck to vibrate and you don't know why. At Dirk’s Auto Clinic in Crystal River, FL, we can help, no matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive and it is an easy issue to detect on a test drive.

There are a few indicators your engine mounts need to be replaced. For one, you can do a visual inspection, if they’re accessible enough - if they looked cracked, smashed, or dry-rotted, it’s probably time for new ones.  If the engine visibly shakes while it’s running, engine mounts are also likely the culprit.  However, if you are like most drivers you simply get in and drive on down the road until something is different or a light comes on!   Then you call our shop for help!

fleet of cars

Are your fleet vehicles equipped with four-wheel or all-wheel drive? More and more, companies are moving towards vehicles equipped with one or the other - they’re safer and more useful, particularly in inclement weather or less than ideal conditions. If your fleet is powered by all four wheels, Dirk’s Auto Clinic in Crystal River, FL has you covered.

Performance Car

If you drive a performance or luxury vehicle, you know that your precision engineered equipment demands precision tuning. At Dirk’s Auto Clinic in Crystal River, FL, we specialize in high-end imports and performance vehicles and keeping them up to par.

Pile of tires

There are multiple types of tires on the market for almost every car, truck, or SUV. The type of tire you want depends on a variety of factors, from climate to how you drive. Here’s a short rundown of common street tires that’ll suit your needs.

vehicle brake repair

There is a reason we check your brake fluid when you come in for a service check.  Maintenance pays big dividends and we want to avoid high repair costs for our Crystal River drivers.  Did you know that brake service isn't just all about the brake pads, drums & rotors?  That we have found low brake fluid to be the cause of a large percentage of brake issues here at Dirk’s Auto Clinic?  Seriously, brake fluid is an important part of your braking system and with your service intervals being less frequent on the newer vehicles 5,000-10,000 more miles this has become an issue!  Why?...
