Hybrid and EV Maintenance:

Just because you have an electric or hybrid vehicle doesn’t mean you have to be locked into going to the dealership for routine maintenance and repair. Will’s Auto Repair has the tools and expert knowledge to service and repair any facet of your hybrid vehicle, electric car or truck.
Our highly trained technicians can quickly diagnose and resolve all issues your vehicle might experience. If you are experiencing a loss of power, energy or capacity over time in your electric or hybrid’s battery, it may be time to have us take a look.
You can’t assume you need to replace your hybrid battery without first having a qualified expert diagnose the performance of your vehicle and the condition of your hybrid battery.
When a hybrid failure code is triggered by the vehicle’s computer, the hybrid battery may not even be at fault. When it comes to diagnosing the hybrid battery itself, a hybrid warning light can mean many different things such as voltage drops in battery modules, corrosion in connectors, dirt and debris negatively affecting operation or any combination of these things. Proper diagnosis by a hybrid battery technician will save you time and money.

We understand that getting your car rolling puts strains on your engine much more than cruising along at a steady pace. This is where the torque of an electric motor comes into the hybrid drive system, and where your gas savings come from. Will’s Auto Repair provides diagnostic testing, repairs, and preventative maintenance for drivers in Eugene to make sure your hybrid or EV stays at peak performance.

Beyond the Battery

Regenerative braking is another clever feature of your hybrid or EV. Basically, this type of braking puts the electric motor into reverse which assists the mechanical brake pads and slows the vehicle while generating electricity that then charges your battery. Your hybrid vehicle brake system will experience a much longer life, but when it’s finally time to get your brake pads replaced, Will’s Auto Repair has you covered!

Keep up with your
hybrid regular maintenance.

EV FAQs

Reconditioning refers to the process of identifying faulty individual battery modules within the battery pack and discerning which ones need to be replaced. Afterwards multiple deep discharge-charge cycles are brought to all modules in parallel which restores lost capacity and resets each module to a common state of charge.

Because hybrid battery costs can be as much as the vehicle itself, it’s always a good idea to check out all the options available for your vehicle such as reconditioning and refurbishing before going the route of replacement.

Most dealerships will recommend a hybrid battery replacement when asked about issues with hybrid batteries. In some cases, when it’s been verified that the battery is failing, it may only be two modules of the hybrid battery pack at fault. The car’s computer can disable the vehicle when a single module drops below a voltage threshold. This can be deceptive and lead you down the road to buying a new hybrid battery.

Will’s Auto repair is able to do a comprehensive diagnosis to save you time and money on your hybrid vehicle. After diagnosis and/or refurbishment of your hybrid battery, Will’s Auto Repair will provide printed certification of the quality of the hybrid battery.

If it’s not possible to repair your hybrid battery, Will’s Auto Repair can provide you with a refurbished battery that is far more affordable than getting it replaced. It’s recommended to refurbish before replacing your hybrid battery not only to keep your costs low, but to advocate long range environmental benefits of green energy.
