At Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 847-398-4645 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 Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center, we offer factory recommended service/maintenance. Our highly skilled auto mechanics offer comprehensive knowledge and experience. At Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center, 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 Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center 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 Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center in Arlington Heights, IL 60004.

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 Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center 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 Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center today. The mechanics at Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center 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 Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center 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 Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center today. The mechanics at Dakota K Auto Repair & Tire Center will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.


What Our Customers Are Saying

Brought my car in for a check engine light. The problem was diagnosed and situation resolved. They gave me a loaner car while the service was being performed making my day much easier.


-Rich L.

I've been coming here for almost 10 years. I always feel great about the service my car gets from Dakota. The staff is nice & helpful in explaining the estimates & repairs.


-Alan B.

Very honest, And great service!!!!


-Ricardo S.

Excellent service, I had no brakes. Pedal to the floor on my 05 Tahoe. Turns out the lines were rusted/rotted. Replaced with better materials all lines, hoses and fittings. Brakes are rock solid now. And all for a reasonable (yet still painful lol) price. Sometimes having an older vehicle just means this stuff needs to be done. Very pleased.


-Vince S.

Life Savers!! They towed, repaired, had reasonable pricing for repairs, and gave me a loner so I could get to work. They made my commuted break down stress free. Thanks guys and gal!!


-Daniel Z.

Great and very reasonable pricing and very knowledgeable service writers would most definitely send friends here they did great work on my diesel truck for a fraction of the cost of Ford.


-Kyle R.

I stopped by for a minor repair and they got me in right away. I was impressed with their professionalism and service. I will definitely be back.


-Dan T.

They do a great job on repairs, maintenance, etc. We've used their services for years!


-David C.

I must give these guys credit for simply standing by their warranty on a timing chain replacement that ended up having an issue. They towed in my car, diagnosed, took responsibility for and fixed the issue, without question or hassle, under their warranty. It is valuable to know they are an ethical shop.


-Blake C.

Helpful, considerate, friendly and very reasonable rates! The perfect combination when you need help with your automobile.


-Patricia C.

Amazing service. I came to the shop 2 hours before closing on Saturday. Muffler on my Nissan got loose and apparently detached from the exhaust. They've inspected the car and showed me where the problem was, recommended optimal and inexpensive fix, spent a great deal of time calling local suppliers to locate the proper part and got the job done before closing. Staff was very nice and professional. Job was done fast and inexpensive. Great local shop. Highly recommended.


-Dmitriy F.

I had the most pleasant experience with Dakota's. They charged me a reasonable rate, were honest with me, and lent me a loaner car while mine was in the shop for a few days. I definitely recommend them and definitely would come back!
