I have done thorough diligence on auto-repair shops in the San Mateo area, and Holland Car Care is at the top of my list!"
"Went in with check engine light at 9 am. Diagnosed and repaired by 2pm and $100 less than expected because they said that they didn’t need a particular part. Fast and very honest service. Have been going here for 15 years with 2 different BMWs without any issues!"
"As always, Holland did a wonderful job. Scheduling an appointment was easy and convenient. I trust Holland with my car and the costs have been very competitive. The work was completed earlier than promised and when I picked it up, it had been washed. David is efficient and kind and makes the whole process a positive experience."
"Always great - prompt, helpful and don’t unnecessarily suggest extra work just because we don’t know any better. Highly recommend."
Intake Manifold Issues
Carbon tends to build up on the intake manifold of the Audi A4. The issue with carbon buildup becomes the inability to have proper airflow reach the engine, creating an issue as the engine needs a good flow of oxygen to provide the power the A4 is capable of.
We at Holland Car Care know how to clean out and maintain your intake manifold, which is rather crucial when it comes to having the right amount of power in your A4.
Burning Oil in the Audi A4
Oil is one of the most important fluids in your vehicle. Unfortunately, like other performance vehicles, the Audi A4 does have the tendency to burn oil more than the average sedan. Why? The valves and gaskets which are designed to hold oil and compression in place can loosen over time – and especially if you drive your vehicle extra hard. The result is oil either leaking out or burning under higher heat.
To be fair, we feel like the performance of the Audi 4 makes it worth checking the oil on the regular. We suggest bringing your A4 into Holland Car Care for regular maintenance to make sure your oil levels are normal and the engine remains leak-free.
As the name describes well, the timing belt helps provide the engine with the right timing for when rods and pistons are moving. An issue with the timing belt can quickly cause rather serious problems including the engine having a catastrophic internal part failure. We suggest getting the timing belt checked with us at Holland Car Care on a regular basis and having it replaced before it goes bad.
It’s not uncommon for a performance vehicle to have the suspension parts wear out a little faster than normal. You might notice the comfort level of your drive getting worse over time in the Audi A4, and the issue is likely caused by premature wear in your tie rods, struts, and springs. When you start to notice issues with handling, or it just seems loud when you corner, bring it to us at Holland Car Care. Unfortunately, suspensions tend to get worse before they get better as a worn part causes other parts to wear out faster, too.
The Audi A4 is the preferred performance sedan of many. Thankfully at Holland Car Care, we’ve seen and studied many of them as they are popular in our area. We look forward to helping service your A4 and keeping it on the road for years to come. We offer many amenities including a comfy waiting area and a shuttle service or rentals if you need them.
