Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:
You can count on the experts at Auto Service with Steve 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 847-657-8452 or visit Auto Service with Steve 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 Auto Service with Steve 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 Auto Service with Steve in Glenview, IL 60025. 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 Auto Service with Steve in Glenview, IL 60025.
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 Auto Service with Steve, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 847-657-8452 or visit Auto Service with Steve today.
Auto Service With Steve Inc diagnosed my problem honestly and solved the issue with integrity. Nice guys!
Excellent service, very friendly and helpful mechanics.
Steve offers something not found often..honesty and affordability !!
I'm from North Carolina, and needed some emergency repairs. Steve got it done quickly even though I was late for my appointment and it was a Saturday. He alerted me to an additional problem that I knew existed, so I know he was being honest. He did not push at all when I denied the additional repair. If I don't edit this review, assume that my car held up for the 13 hour drive ahead of me.
I highly recommend this business for all your car needs. They are very honest, reliable and affordable.

I have taken my cars to Steve since he opened in the late 1990s and can recommend him without reservation. He is honest, knowledgeable and a very good communicator. He explains all options thoroughly before moving forward and will not hesitate to send you to a dealer if it makes more sense for certain kinds of work.
I had the pleasure of working with Steve recently and I can say that you aren't going to find someone more honest, transparent and reliable. Highly recommend for all car service needs.
Steve and his crew are honest, affordable, understanding and extremely kind. He takes the time to explain everything to you and doesn't try to slip anything past you. His prices are the best around and his expertise and warmth can't be beat. They really treat you like old friends in the shop. Such a family atmosphere. I have brought my Jeep to him twice now and have been extremely happy walking out the door. If you need a great mechanic, Steve is your guy!
Steve was very helpful with assisting me with an inspection of my Porsche 911.
Helped me out in a pinch. Great work, great service. Honest with integrity!
