Tire Balancing (Click here to visit our full page)
Tire balancing is vitally important for a smooth ride as well as the longevity of your tires. Having properly balanced tires not only eliminates annoying vibrations in the steering wheel, seat, or floorboards while you are driving, but it also extends the life of your tires. Unbalanced tires can cause your tires and your suspension to wear out more rapidly. Tires, even brand new ones, are not perfectly round and they may also be heavier in some places and lighter in others. Balancing them will detect and compensate for these imperfections. If your tires need balancing contact us at Hansma Automotive.

Fuel Injection Repairs:
The fuel injection system is responsible for introducing the fuel into your engine, from your gas tank. It has numerous driver benefits such as: better engine response, easier engine start-up, and better operation at high and low temperatures. It also has environmental benefits such as increased fuel economy and decreased emissions. Hansma is able to fix any issues with your fuel injection system.
The clutch is responsible for changing gears. A healthy clutch will have smooth gear shifts, whereas a worn out one will struggle to shift into gear. The drive line (or powertrain) is responsible for powering the wheels of your vehicle, as well as switching it between 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive.
