Independent Auto Repair Service in Louisville, KY

Here are some of the auto repair services that we offer:

Diesel Repair

Our technicians can work on any diesel-powered vehicles, including cars, trucks, fleet vehicles, and even eco-diesels. You can count on us to be up to date with the latest developments in the diesel technology, and offer you the service you need to make the most out of your diesel-powered vehicle. We do understand that the diesel engines of today are not like those of the past, and we treat them with the modernity they deserve, and as high-tech, as they are.

When you bring your diesel vehicle into our Louisville repair shop for any reason, our mechanics will also inspect it for other potential problems that you might not be aware of, such as weakened hoses, worn belts. We are committed to helping you diagnose and repair any issues as early as possible before they turn into significant, more expensive repairs.

We want to offer you the best customer service so that you are satisfied and confident about your truck. This way, you can keep driving your diesel vehicle safely down any road. Our periodic preventative maintenance program for your vehicle will also help keep your engine in tip-top shape while working as efficiently as it should, giving you maximum performance and maximum fuel economy.

Oil Change with Inspection

One of the most critical maintenance routine for your vehicle is changing the engine oil and filters regularly, as recommended by the manufacturer. It primarily helps your car stay healthy, increase the durability and reliability of the engine, ensures a trouble-free engine life, and helps you to avoid costly repairs and breakdowns as the vehicle ages. Our oil change service comes with a 57-point vehicle inspection, which includes oil and oil filter replacement, wipers inspection, topping off the essential fluids, as well as inspecting the hoses and belts.

Dealer Required Maintenance

New cars don’t necessarily have to be serviced exclusively at the dealerships during the factory warranty period to preserve the new car warranty. Independent garages and repair shops like ours can maintain new cars too. We will take care of your entire maintenance services required for your new vehicle for comparatively less hassle and cost compared to a dealership while making sure that your vehicle manufacturer’s warranty requirements will be followed to the letter.

Complete Brake Service

Brake Repair at Expert Auto Mechanics & Truck Repair

Our shop is equipped to handle all kinds of brake repair and maintenance jobs, including brake shoe and brake pad replacements, brake caliper replacement, resurfacing the rotors, brake fluid flushes, and brake hose replacement. In case you hear a screeching sound when you step on the brakes, or you notice any grinding sounds or vibrations, it could be that your brake system is faulty. The brake pedal might not be responding as well as it did before. This is a sign that it’s time to service your brake system. This is crucial as it plays a critical role in protecting you, your passengers, and other motorists on the road.

Check Engine Light Diagnostics

In case any of your warning lights are on, or you’re experiencing an issue with your vehicle, and you don’t know what the problem could be, schedule an inspection with us today. We have state of the art computer diagnostic tools and equipment, which help us to identify the cause of the problems that you have noticed in your car. Once we correctly know the exact cause of the problem, we can conduct the proper repairs, replacement, or servicing; no more no less than necessary, to have your vehicle running as it should in no time. Our expert mechanics are trained to be fast problem solvers, and you can count on our automotive technicians to keep testing and checking until the problem is resolved.

Air Conditioning and Heating

The heating and a/c system of your vehicle is an essential component, as it helps keep you comfortable while driving, and in some cases, it can enhance the visibility for your safety. For instance, if the weather gets severe while you’re driving, you will primarily be dependent on your vehicle’s heating and air conditioning system to keep you safe and secure inside the car. Our technicians can quickly diagnose and repair any issues that you might be experiencing with your vehicle’s AC or heating unit; whether it merely needs a recharge or repairing/replacing the condenser, compressor, hoses, receiver, or the electronic climate controls.

The following components will be inspected:

  • Radiator coolant level, thermostat, pressure cap, and hoses
  • The internal controls and blower
  • Leaks and other forms of damage
  • The AC compressor belt for tension and overall condition
  • The condition of the component (leaks or damage)

Their general condition is recorded and compared to the specification of the manufacturer. We then make recommendations based on the guidelines outlined by the Motorist Assurance Program Uniform Inspection.

Suspension and Steering Systems

The primary role of the suspension and steering system is allowing the wheels to move independently of the car while keeping it stable and in a “suspended” position. Any free motion or play in these systems usually results in deteriorated handling and accelerates the wear of the tires. The condition of the steering and suspension systems is closely linked to the vehicle’s alignment.

Transmission Maintenance

Automatic transmission or manual transmission problems are some of the most expensive repairs required on a vehicle. This is mainly because the system is made up of a complex set of gears that transmit the mechanical power from the engine and determine the speed the car moves. Transmission problems commonly occur when regular service is neglected. If you fail to change the fluids properly, the heat generated from mileage friction will result in accelerated wear from rough shifting, and eventually a complete failure.

It’s therefore essential that you have your transmission system adequately maintained. Your vehicle’s transmission should always be cooled and lubricated by the most exceptional quality transmission fluids, which should only be changed by professional service providers.

Wheel Alignment

This is the position of a vehicle’s wheel relative to the location of the car. When the wheels are correctly aligned, the wheels point in the right direction. When they are not aligned, the wheels tend to resist steering commands from each other. Alignment also impacts tire wear and gas mileage. If the wheels of your car are pointed in different directions, they are ideally fighting each other, and this can cause severe tread wear. Computerized wheel alignment equipment is typically used to evaluate the wheels alignment angles on modern cars.

Wheel Balance

Often this will be confused with wheel alignment. In general, a properly balanced wheel is a perfectly tuned tire-wheel combination. One of the tell-tale signs that your wheels are out of balance is your vehicle vibrating when it reaches speeds say between 50 mph and 70 mph. It means that one of your tires is more substantial than the other since it has endured a bit more exposure to the heat and friction of the road. If this is the case, visit us for prompt service. Many of our clients are delighted with the difference the simple, inexpensive wheel balancing procedure makes.

Drive Shaft & CV Axle

Your vehicle’s axle is the structural component that links two wheels on opposite sides together. It’s, therefore, a load-bearing assembly that serves as a central shaft, ideally keeping the wheels at the same position relative to each other and the body of the vehicle. The design of the axle is based on what the car was built for.

For instance, off-road vehicles and trucks come with axles that maintain a steady wheels position when the car is under heavy stress, making them ideal for carrying a heavy load. Conventional axles are designed with the general consumer in mind. Nonetheless, regardless of what you drive, the axle on your vehicle must bear its total weight (including cargo), as well as the acceleration forces.

When it comes to professional axle inspection, we are your best source for expert and professional service. We work to make sure that your vehicle can safely carry you, your passengers, and your cargo, to wherever you need to go, according to manufacturer’s specifications.

Fuel and Air Induction Clean-up

With the use of our specialized equipment, our technicians can promptly and effectively clean the intake manifolds, intake valves, ports, and combustion chamber of your car. We can also install an injector-cleaning additive in the tank if you want to; as it can help to restore any lost power and performance, while at the same time reduce harmful exhaust emissions.

Power Steering Flush

We can flush out the old, contaminated steering fluid and replace it with fresh, new high-quality fluid, which is fortified with special anti-wear and antioxidant ingredients to help prevent expensive mechanical failures in the future.

Automotive Batteries

Automotive Battery Replacement at Expert Auto Mechanics & Truck Repair

Your car won’t work as efficiently as it should if it doesn’t have the right battery for your driving needs appropriately fitted, even if the vehicle is well maintained. From the power windows to your entertainment system to the ignition system, the battery in your car is the reason every electronic equipment works the way you want it to.

We can help you choose the right battery for your lifestyle and vehicle needs. Our mechanics will safely replace old batteries, professionally install a new battery, and get you back on the road quickly.

Emissions Testing and Exhaust Repair

Emissions testing, also known as Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) program is used in several states as required by the Environmental Protection Agency. The purpose of the I/M programs is to assess the emissions of a vehicle and single out the ones that go beyond the limits outlined for certain model years of vehicles. The programs also advocate for proper maintenance routines to help prevent high emissions as a result of neglect.

Of course, the best way of keeping your vehicle environmentally friendly is conducting scheduled maintenance regularly instead of waiting to repair a problem once your car fails the emissions test. So, if the “Check Engine” or “Service Engine” light appears, have your vehicle checked as soon as possible by a professional service. Ignoring such warnings can lead to more expensive and extensive repairs. Like replacement of the muffler, catalytic converter and oxygen sensor.

Fleet Inspections and Service

Our garage also provides a full service, custom preventative maintenance plans for fleet vehicles. When you properly maintain your fleet vehicle, it’s much easier to predict and prevent problems, and the required repairs can be conducted before the total breakdown of failure. Our staff can help you schedule a service in advance, at the time you deem best and convenient for you. If you need any repairs done, we’ll do our best to have the vehicle back on the road quickly and working for you as needed. We can also handle fleet inspections.
