Hybrid vehicles run from a combination of an internal combustion motor and an electric motor. The electric motor gets its energy from batteries. Unlike a fully electric car, it can’t be hooked into a charging station. Instead, the batteries are charged through regenerative braking and the internal combustion engine. The electric motor and batteries led to the car needing a smaller combustion engine. This, in turn, saves fuel and reduces emissions. These parts working in sync keep a hybrid running, so it is important to keep up with preventative maintenance and car care.
Our Hybrid Services
At Auto Clinic of Maryland, we have the expertise to keep each part of your hybrid in optimal condition. We offer extensive battery pack maintenance and repair. Battery repair is often the most costly repair to hybrids. However, we offer the best and most affordable options at our shop. We can quickly diagnose why your hybrid battery is not holding a charge or powering the electric engine. Our technicians work with most battery models, and they will efficiently find the correct replacements if they are needed.
The regenerative braking system is one of the most essential parts of a hybrid. It powers the batteries that run the electric engine and adds to the longevity of the vehicle. If this system is not functioning correctly, it will not power the electric engine. Worn brake pads are a common culprit messing up the system. If the brake pads can’t properly slow down the car and connect, the hybrid doesn’t generate energy. At our shop, we will carefully monitor and repair the brake pads. Our technicians will ensure they last as long as possible before needing to be replaced. They also diagnose and fix other brake issues to keep the regenerative braking system from stalling out.
Hybrid engines require special care and maintenance. They help you save gas, but they sometimes do not function as well with things like stop-and-go traffic. It puts a strain on the motor, causing it to wear down and not run optimally. Our shop is fully equipped to service hybrid engines. We perform thorough diagnostics combined with high-quality repairs to keep your hybrid vehicle running smoothly in all road and traffic conditions.
