Our Car Repair Services

Are you looking for more information about what we can offer in terms of automotive care? The following is a list of some of our most popular auto repair services.

Tire Repair and Rotation

The tires on your vehicle need a degree of close attention, especially if you notice signs of wear or damage. When your tires display symptoms like cracking, bulging, feathering, or scalloping, it’s likely that you’re overdue for a tire repair. In addition, it’s a wise and sensible idea to rotate your tires approximately every 6,000 miles. This will allow the tread to wear evenly.

Between servicing, you can extend the lifespan of your tires by checking the tire pressures on a regular basis. Even if they were inflated correctly a month or two ago, tires tend to lose pressure slowly over time. You can find the ideal recommended pressure for your vehicle’s standard default tires either in your owner’s manual or on a sticker situated within the front door—on the driver’s side.

Oil Change Service

Oil change

For any driver in the Tulsa area, regular oil changes are an essential part of auto maintenance. Clean oil helps prevent engine overheating, ensures proper lubrication, and removes dirt

and sludge from the engine. But those contaminants have to go somewhere, and as a consequence your oil will deliver less effective engine protection if ignored for too long.

Every 3,000–5,000 miles, you should bring your car to the nearest Tate Boys location for an oil change. We’ll give you up to five quarts of new oil, but that isn’t the only step included in our service. With your oil change, you’ll also receive a multi-point vehicle inspection, a new oil filter, and a full tire rotation (if requested).

Brake Repair

Your car’s braking system utilizes friction to slow down or stop your car, but that same friction generates heat and causes wear and tear on brake components. If you hear a grinding or squealing sound while driving, worn rotors or brake pads could be responsible. Other signs of brake trouble can include the car pulling to one side of the road while braking, vibrations within the brake pedal, and/or leaking brake fluid.

Whenever you need brake repair or brake pad replacement services in Tulsa, you can count on Tate Boys for the expertise you’re looking for. We’ll start by inspecting your brake hardware and hydraulic system. We’ll then perform all required services like replacing brake fluid, installing new brake shoes and/or pads, lubricating brake components, and fixing any other brake issues you may be confronted with.

Auto Air Conditioning (AC) Repair

As an experienced Oklahoma resident, you certainly know that our region gets its fair share of extreme temperature variations. That means that you’ll have to deal with a wide array of weather conditions. As part of that process, you’ll need an auto AC system that’s fully functional and in excellent working order. Yet auto AC problems are all too common.

Whether your AC unit has just started blowing warm air or has been problematic for a period of several months, our expert mechanics can help. At Tate Boys, we offer full AC repair services—from running diagnostic checks on your system for leaks to recharging and repairing your entire AC unit. Best of all, we’ll do it at a very affordable price.

battery change service

Car Battery Replacement

The importance of a fully charged car battery is clearly evident—if your battery is drained, you won’t be able to start your vehicle. There are assorted reasons why your battery might be

discharged. They can include extremely high (or low) temperatures or having left your lights on after shutting off the ignition. But whatever the explanation for the low battery charge, the fact remains that it must be checked out.

Like other automotive problems, battery issues can vary in magnitude. You may have noticed that your headlights are dimmer than normal. The engine may have trouble firing up. Or you may be completely unable to start your car. To keep difficult engine starts and other battery-related problems from getting worse, select us at Tate Boys for a battery replacement.

Steering and Suspension Repair

If your car’s steering system isn’t functioning correctly, then you can’t drive safely here in Tulsa—or anywhere else, for that matter. Not all steering faults are immediately apparent. However, if your car pulls to one side, sways back and forth when you apply the brake, squeaks during turns, or has one side sitting lower than the other, the steering and/or suspension systems may be suspect.

You should bring your car into a Tate Boys location whenever you have reason to believe your due for a suspension or steering repair due to being damaged or compromised. We’re standing by, ready to repair these vital systems, and we can do so—capably and efficiently. And, in addition to working on your suspension, we can repair your hydraulic power steering system.

Automotive Fluids—Flush and Refill Service

Your car needs several distinct types of fluid to run correctly, all of which should be flushed on a regular basis. Antifreeze/engine coolant needs replacement every two to three years or 30,000 miles (50,000 miles for the newer formulas). To check your coolant level, shut off your engine, allow it to cool, and observe your reservoir’s coolant level in comparison with the “empty” and “full” reservoir indicators.

Your power steering fluid should also be replaced every three years or 50,000 miles. You can visually detect the fluid level if your car has a reservoir; otherwise, you’ll need to use a dipstick. And if you notice an abnormally low level of power steering fluid, let us know. You may have a simple leak, which we can easily repair for you.

Preventative Car Maintenance

Oil Change Tulsa

Many people visit their doctor for a regularly scheduled check-up, even if they don’t have any obvious health concerns. From that perspective, it’s easy to see why doing the same thing for

your vehicle makes sense. These check-ups are called “preventative car maintenance,” and there’s no better place in Tulsa to get them taken care of than Tate Boys Tire & Service.

Since all the mechanics at Tate Boys are ASE certified, they can meet or exceed the service recommendations of your vehicle’s manufacturer. Your preventative car maintenance visit may include a diverse group of services, including oil changes, tire rotation, belt and hose replacement, fluid flush and refill, and more.
