Our competitively priced undercar services include:
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Bellflower Automotive.
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At Bellflower Automotive, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at Bellflower Automotive can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.
Brake System Flush
Brake fluid is hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture). The absorbed moisture lowers the fluid's boiling point. It also corrodes the lines and cylinders. With the lowered boiling point, the brake fluid could boil during braking which makes you lose braking ability. Although this is an extreme scenario, it does happen in heavy braking. To reduce the effects of the absorbed moisture, auto manufacturers recommend that you have a brake flush done periodically. A brake system flush involves the replacement of used and contaminated fluid with fresh fluid. With Bellflower Automotive's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 562-804-6014 or visit Bellflower Automotive today.
A chassis is the car's internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects. At Bellflower Automotive, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact Bellflower Automotive today for differentials examination and servicing.
The differential is a car part that compensates for the difference in travel distance between the inner wheels and outer wheels when the vehicle is turning. Due to the differential's position in most non-four-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles (located at the rear and under the car), it does not get any of the star treatment the engine gets. The one thing that every car owner needs to know is that failure of the differential will mean failure of the car. To save the differential from failure, you need to have differential fluid changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Changing the oil on the differential is as important as changing the car's engine oil. Although checking and changing differential oil is pretty easy, you need to visit an auto shop to get a comprehensive differential flush. For differential flush services, visit or call Bellflower Automotive in Bellflower, CA 90706 today.
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better - for you, your car, and the environment. Bellflower Automotive has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Bellflower Automotive, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition. For all your tire needs, contact Bellflower Automotive today.
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit Bellflower Automotive today.
Much like a shock absorber (shocks), your car's struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road's surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant and uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your car's suspension. This means that struts support your car's weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time. Call Bellflower Automotive at 562-804-6014 if you have questions about the struts on your car. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.
Andrew was very professional and honest and he only did the work that needed to be done he would call me first before he would do anything on my car he saved me a considerable amount of money compared to the other place I was taking my 2 cars. So nice to find a Automotive Business That you can actually trust and not get ripped off. I really didn't think there was a place like this anywhere! A friend recommended it to me.
Best mechanic in town I've been going to him for last 7 years. He is not like other mechanics just trying to run up your bill. He will advise you what's best for you and your vehicle. Honest stand up dude and very knowledgeable, I will continue to bring him business and anyone else I know.
This shop is family run, they do great work, and most importantly, they're honest! My wife and I have brought both our cars to the shop recently and our experiences exceeded our expectations. I appreciate Andrews clear communication, giving his recommendations based off of their initial diagnostics. He also didn't pressure us at all, and explained what work was most critical, based off of our financial situation. Even better, they're located only a couple blocks away from us. We'll definitely be back, but hopefully not too soon(for our vehicles sake) lol.
These guys are great. Finally found a trusted shop! I have an older car and don't want to take it to the dealership and overpay. I was happy with their service and definitely will be returning.
Very good place!! They did a amazing job fixing my truck! And for a really good price also. Would defently recommend anyone to come check them out!...
Very satisfied with the crew... I would recommend this shop. Bring your car to them.
My car has been coming to this shop for years. Great service and friendly people. Almost always same day fixes for quick service. I recommend this place to everyone.
I've taken my last 4 cars here, foreign & domestic. My mom's 2 cars go here only. Honest, swift and no-regret repairs.
Great honest service plus they guarantee their jobs thanks to the team.
I have been going here for years. My Dad originally started going to Hector's (that's what I call the place) back in the day and my whole family goes here. This place is the family's mechanic for all our cars. I have always gotten great service, reasonable pricing, and all around knowledge mechanics there no matter what car you drive. I believe this place is fair and doesn't tell you that you will need something done on your car that you actually don't need at that time. Tell everyone about this place you will not be disappointed with the service and the quality of work.
...I will continually take all my vehicles here from now on.
Excellent customer service and quality techs. Always leave the shop knowing my car was properly serviced.
Excellent service, this team is very serious, 100% recommended.
Been using them for three years now. Professional, honest, and reliable.
They're the best they can fix any problem, guarantee.
