Our basic auto maintenance services include:

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Kensington Auto Service Ltd., we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 860-829-7377 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Factory Recommended Service/Maintenance
Automotive and auto parts come with a factory recommended service and maintenance schedule. The manufacturer will tell you how often to service or replace an auto part. At Kensington Auto Service Ltd., we offer factory recommended service/maintenance. Our highly skilled auto mechanics offer comprehensive knowledge and experience. At Kensington Auto Service Ltd., all your factory recommended service/maintenance needs are handled with the latest diagnostic equipment. Remember, we work on all American and imported vehicles (either diesel or gas engines).

30/60/90K Mileage Maintenance
As time goes by, various auto repair and maintenance needs come up at different intervals. Most manufacturers recommend car maintenance in intervals of 30,000 miles. This is the 30/60/90K mile schedule (issued by the manufacturers to car owners). Trust the experts at Kensington Auto Service Ltd. to keep you on schedule, and help you preserve the condition of the vehicle, optimize its performance, and increase its resale value. The 30/60/90K service includes the following:

  • Fluid replacements
  • Oil and Filter changes
  • Tire rotation, spin balance, and pressure adjustments
  • Inspection of parts and systems - gears, tires, brake pads, belts, hoses, etc.
  • With higher mileage: spark plugs, belts, timing belts when applicable

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 Kensington Auto Service Ltd. in Berlin, CT 06037.

Hoses
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 Kensington Auto Service Ltd. 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 Kensington Auto Service Ltd. today. The mechanics at Kensington Auto Service Ltd. will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

Belts
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 Kensington Auto Service Ltd. for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Kensington Auto Service Ltd. today. The mechanics at Kensington Auto Service Ltd. will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

Best guys in town. I go to no other. 5/5

I have been here twice already. First time for an oil change, and the second for an emissions test. The service is fast, friendly, and reliable. No tricks, and pricing is fair. If you need anything done, this is the place to go!

Got my emission testing done there. It got done fast, was there 15 min tops. Very friendly there.


-Llavi Kastiyo

Excellent customer service. Very honest. They corrected a problem with my car that was missed at a previous visit. They could have easily said it was something else, but they owned up to it, fixed it at no charge, AND did extra service at no charge also. These guys are great!
