oil changes

Oil Changes

Did you know that oil change services are one of the least expensive, but most important things you could do to increase the life of your automobile? It’s recommended to most vehicle owners that they change their vehicle’s engine oil every 3k to 5k miles. Doing so will prevent your engine from overheating and running oil full of dirt and other debris through its system. Schedule your oil change today!

The transmission is one of the most important systems in a vehicle. It’s important to make sure it’s in its best possible shape. Did you notice any leaks under your vehicle? Is the transmission oil black or smells burnt? Our experts have the latest diagnostic equipment to help find out what might be wrong with your transmission. Once the scan is done, we’ll go over it with you before we make repairs!

It started with a dream as a teenager: I was going to own an auto shop. At first, I wanted a hot rod shop but it occurred to me that people would need to trust me with their everyday vehicles before they would trust me with their hot rods. I went to WyoTech, a prestigious auto repair tech school, and received an Associates’s Degree in Service Management and Automotive Technology. I worked as a technician and honed my craft before I pursued my dream and started Ideal Automotive. We are a small family-owned shop that I hope to pass along to my three kids in the future. We have been in business since 2010. We started in a small garage for the first six months, then moved into a shared warehouse space for a year. After sharing space with another business, I moved into our current location. We have been here since March of 2012. We have Master ASE Technicians on staff and we strive to give the best customer service possible tied with a quality repair. Call Ideal Automotive Auto Repair Blaine, MN today.
