More on Our Auto Service Specialties

  • Brake Repair & Service

    Brake Repair & Service

    Brake repair specialists at our shop understand how important it is to keep the drivers in Los Angeles safe by maintaining the braking system of your vehicle. After a certain number of miles, the brakes will wear down. Our brake repair team will inspect the brake lines for leaks while also observing the condition of the brake discs or drums. We can develop a plan for brake repair work that meets your needs. There can be many different signs indicating that your vehicle requires brake repair work. For example, the brake hoses could have leaks, or the brake pads might become soft. Get the brake repair work done immediately to prevent your car from becoming a road hazard.


  • Check Engine Light

    Check Engine Light

    The check engine light is a critical part of your engine’s early warning system. Never ignore the check engine light when it turns on because the check engine light usually indicates that a serious problem exists. It’s important to find out why the check engine light is turning on. For example, the engine could be misfiring, and this issue makes the check engine light become active. However, a faulty gas cap can also trigger the check engine light sensor. Our service team can find out the real reason why your check engine light is becoming activated.


  • Exhaust/Muffler Repair & Service

    Exhaust/Muffler Repair & Service

    The exhaust system of the vehicle is often associated with the muffler and the tailpipe. However, there are many other critical parts of the exhaust system that could be causing problems. For example, the manifold is the component that receives exhaust fumes from the cylinders. It also routes the exhaust to the tailpipe. Cracks in the manifold are just one possible item that can go wrong with your exhaust system.


  • Oil Change / Lube Service

    Oil Change / Lube Service

    Regular oil changes protect your engine from corrosion, damage, overheating and other ailments. Maintaining the engine is critical for extending the total working life of your vehicle. This requires you to stay on top of the oil changes. In reality, oil change services are part of a comprehensive preventative maintenance program that involves other fluids, inspections and air filter changes. The oil change is just the most critical part of this process. Make an appointment today for an oil change if you’ve neglected the vehicle. Each vehicle will have a manufacturer’s recommendation for the proper intervals for oil changes, but it’s normally between 5,000 to 7,000 miles.


  • Transmission Repair & Service

    Transmission Repair & Service

    Transmission repair specialists at our shop are fully capable of handling any issue. A transmission repair specialist might be needed for a variety of problems because transmission systems are not all identical. Some models have manual transmission while others have an automatic transmission, so the right transmission repair protocol must be used. This also requires special equipment and training, and you can find all of these essential transmission repair options at our shop. We work with every customer to find out what type of transmission repair work is necessary.


  • Tune-ups

    Tune-ups

    The engine tune-ups are part of a complete preventative maintenance program. The vehicle should be brought in to the shop for tune-ups periodically. During these tune-ups, we change the spark plugs or clean them after a certain number of miles. For older models, tune-ups might include checking the distributor cap and rotor. These vehicles might still require tune-ups from a mechanic with knowledge of carburetor systems, for example.
