A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Cruz Auto Repair for all your vehicle's repair needs.

Coolant System Flush
A car's air conditioning system contains a coolant which transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the a/c coolant becomes old and dirty. The old coolant will negatively impact the system's performance. To make sure the system is working effectively, consider having a regular coolant system flush. A coolant flush is basic maintenance for your car's cooling system. Call 510-215-1841 or visit Cruz Auto Repair in Richmond, CA 94804 for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. Ensure maximum performance from your vehicle's heating and cooling systems today.
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Cruz Auto Repair for all your vehicle's repair needs.
You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Cruz Auto Repair today. The mechanics at Cruz Auto Repair will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.
A radiator is the part of your vehicle that keeps the engine cool and protects it from excessive heating. To be cool, the radiator needs to remain clean - always. With time, sludge, rust and other solid deposits build up inside your car's radiator. These make the cooling system become clogged and less effective. This in effect hurts your vehicle's performance. A regular radiator flush is enough to keep the system in shape. For this reason, make radiator flushing a part of your routine car maintenance schedule. For all your radiator flush needs, call 510-215-1841 or visit Cruz Auto Repair today.
Radiators are heat exchangers for cooling your car's internal combustion engine. A radiator cools the engine by circulating an engine coolant through the engine block - it then loses the heat to the atmosphere through radiation. A radiator has a set of tubes through which the engine coolant flows. Fins surround these tubes. When the radiator fails, the excess heat produced by the engine could damage the engine components. To prevent this from happening, have your radiator serviced regularly. To have your radiator needs handled by experts, visit Cruz Auto Repair today.

I just met Augustin, and he really took good care of me. Replaced the damaged parts that were causing a vibration in my Dodge Ram. He took it for a test drive and made some recommendations for service. Great service, honest, friendly, and very reasonably priced. Thank you! I highly recommend this shop.
We were very thankful to have found Cruz Auto Repair on a late Saturday afternoon after the heater hose in our car sprung a leak on the interstate and leaked engine coolant everywhere. Augustin was able to fit us into his shop immediately and replaced the components right there while we waited, staying late past his normal closing time to ensure we'd be able to get home that evening. He was very down-to-earth, knew what he was doing, and charged a very reasonable rate for the work performed.
I had a master cylinder replaced on my Toyota. Efficient and honest service. It is my newly discovered, go to garage, when I do not have time or the place to work on my own car.
Great customer service! Honest guys. Very reasonable prices! They explained everything to me before signing any papers or performing any work. They are very professional. Highly recommend this shop without hesitation.
I got a great deal with Cruz Auto Repair. They were fair, honest and fast. I'll definitely recommend these guys to my family and friends.
Reasonable price and the best auto repair with diamond certified warranty!
Allow me to start by saying that we chose this shop because my wife is the Extended Care Director and a part-time substitute teacher at the school the owner (Cruz) has his son in. The owner and I spoke during and after the process, and it seemed like it was important to him to do a good job. They back their work with a full 180 day warranty - good in all 50 states! That's hard to beat!
Great turn around time for a last minute appointment. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. My only critique, help the receptionist with the calls regarding diagnosis. She did the best she could, but wasn't able to answer technical questions. Overall, great shop. And we will be back.
Great Shop and Great work! Thank you Mr. Cruz and staff for always taking care of our vehicles! Thank You Much!
A truly honest, reliable professional. I went in for a transmission overhaul and payed for this major project upfront, IN CASH. To my surprise I get a call back that they were able to find the real issue and refunded me over $2,000!! Any other unethical mechanic would have easily kept the cash and do the unnecessary work. He's a good and honest mechanic; a rare find indeed!
