Steering & Suspension
Your suspension system helps you stay in control when you’re on the road. Have you ever experienced the following?
- Clunk noise over bumps
- Clunk noise when turning
- Steering Wheel Shakes as you drive
- Is it hard to keep the car straight when you let go of your steering wheel?
Shocks & Struts Warning Signs

- Shock or strut bodies are dented or damaged
- Mounts or bushings are broken or worn
- Cupped, uneven tire wear
- Vehicle sways or leans on turns
- Vehicle “nose dives” when you apply the brakes
- Excessive bouncing after hitting a road bump
- Harsh, bumpy or shaky ride
- Steering is stiff or makes noise
Heating & Cooling
Durand Automotive Center has what you need to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Your heating system requires coolant, while you’re A/C requires Freon. But there is so much more than just fluids needed to work properly. Have you ever noticed the following?
- Burnt Maple Syrup smell
- Temperature Gauge rising into the “H”
- No air flow from the vents when A/C is on
- Blinking lights on the control panels
Belt & Radiator Hose Services
A broken belt can potentially cause the vehicle to lose all A/C ability, driving ability and Power Steering ability. Don’t wait until you hear a chirp or squeal to have them inspected for cracks & rib wear. Hoses are made of rubber and rubber breaks down over time with heat. Squeeze them, and if they are soft, replace them before they leak. Overheating and breaking down on the Interstate is not a good look for you.
