When it’s time to take your car to a mechanic for repair services, there can be many things you need to fix. Finding the best Los Angeles auto mechanic for your car problems can be easy if you have a specialist near you to take care of the problem at hand. Knowing what kind of repair services you need for your car can help you save money and keep your car, truck or van running optimally.
Many of these auto repair services can be avoided through proper maintenance of your car. If you haven’t taken the time to properly maintain your vehicle, this can lead to serious issues either from component or sensor failure.
When your car has problems with air conditioning or no longer blows hot air through the vents, you will need someone to take a look at the blower motor inside your dash. This unit controls the airflow to your car vents and a failing blower motor relay or improper grounds can contribute to this problem.
If the air no longer blows hot, it is usually a problem with your engine’s radiator or lack of coolant. Avoid this problem by constantly filling your radiator and making sure you don’t run low, or overheat. Failure to do so can lead to your cylinder head warping from excessive cylinder temperatures. Prolonged overheating conditions will result in oil viscosity breakdown and possible engine bearing failure.
With the capability to fill your air conditioning and providing free leak tests, our Los Angeles car AC repair can solve any cooling or heating issues in your car.
Your vehicle’s brakes utilize a hydraulic system to drive brake calipers into action, therefore bringing your car to a stop. When you have hydraulic leaks, or problems with your slave cylinder boot or your brake master cylinder, you will need a professional to inspect your car
Brake pads and shoes wear off, and need replacing over time. Rotors and drums should also be regularly checked for runout and replaced according to the maintenance schedule for your vehicle year, make and model.
Many of these programs are OEM specific, meaning they are meant to be cleared only by the dealerships. Ask your mechanic what OBDII parameters they support and what manufacturers are on their exclusion list. We have the best brake repair shops in the area.
When your steering wheel feels vague or doesn’t have the response or feedback it used to, there may be an issue with your steering rack or power steering pump. Like your brakes, this primarily hydraulic assisted part of your vehicle is prone to failure at tie rod end boots or damage to the outer tie rod.
Noises or inconsistencies involving your power steering pump may require extensive road testing and diagnosis. Be specific in your complaints so the mechanic at our car repair shop has a better idea of what symptoms to look for.
Belt maintenance and the lack of it are the primary reasons behind things like your power steering pump or air conditioning compressor stopping. The drive belts in your car should be set to the right tension and checked regularly as vital parts of your maintenance.
Incorrect belt tension can cause noise or excessive play in your pulleys. The pros at Armen's BMW can get your drive belts changed quickly to get you back on the road.
The axles and CV joints in your car can become damaged over time, especially when your axle boots rupture. Most driveline repair jobs can be done quickly, and will require new transmission fluid that’s approved for your gearbox.

‘Prevention is better than cure.’ Very true indeed! It is always better to take preventive steps for your car so that you can avoid a bigger damage or failure in the future. Preventive maintenance involves proper system diagnosis, detection of minor problems and taking measures to correct them before they convert into a major threat or failure.
Your car needs regular care and maintenance so that you can avoid bigger damage. For that, you need to take your car for auto repair services from time to time so that experts can perform thorough checks on your vehicle and suggest the required repairs.
Have you taken your car for repair yet? Be careful before it is too late.
The very first step in the process of repair and maintenance is diagnostics and system evaluation. A doctor cannot prescribe the best medicines without proper diagnosis. Similarly without thorough examination, our expert mechanics cannot tell you the required repairs on your car.
Our professional mechanics and technicians at Los Angeles car service are certified and experienced enough to diagnose problems with your car and perform effective system evaluation. Once the system evaluation is completed, we will suggest the required repairs or parts replacement, if needed.
Always remember to have your car oil changed on schedule. It is one of the most important parts of preventive maintenance. Not only the oil, but other fluids and lubricants in the car should also be routinely inspected, so you don’t run into problems from low fluids.
The main problem with oil is that it eventually turns into jelly, which causes engine parts to wear out prematurely. If you forget regular oil changes, then you might end up spending a large amount for replacing expensive engine parts later.
The refrigerant in the air conditioner contains special oil that is responsible for cooling your car. At times, even if your car is being cooled, there might be insufficient oil which eventually would cause premature wear. The advantage of using a fresh refrigerant is that it will help you keep your air conditioning system protected and allow the system to operate at maximum efficiency.
Though some of the basic operations in air conditioning maintenance can be done by you, it is recommended to allow the experts at Los Angeles AC repair to diagnose and perform the required maintenance.
A clean fuel is needed for efficient engine performance. Our professional fuel cleaning system will keep injectors clean; remove debris from the combustion chamber and from the intake valves to improve performance and efficiency. Hence if you want to optimize on your mileage, then it is very important that you perform regular fuel system cleaning.
So timely fuel system cleaning can help you to prevent damage of expensive parts and thus save on your pockets.
Very often, you might forget to take care of your vehicle’s wiper blades and headlights. Wiper blades must be cleaned regularly and changed after every six months. If you forget to do so, your wiper blades might cause you trouble because of reduced driving visibility.
Check your headlights! It is better to avoid accidents due to poor headlights at night. If you find them hazy, then immediately replace them with fresh, bright and crystal clear headlights today. Los Angeles auto mechanics can help with such work.
Maintaining your car batteries is another important aspect of preventive maintenance. To keep your vehicle’s electrical systems in proper working condition, it is necessary that the battery and related components are always in top condition, working flawlessly.
Our trained auto repair technicians are well experienced to handle all battery related problems, be it complex starting or simple charging systems. So whenever you feel that your battery is failing, or the components of your vehicle which operate on the car battery are malfunctioning, just visit us and we will take care of the rest!
The performance of your vehicle degrades with the decrease in the quality of your oil and air filters. Hence protect your vehicle with new filters. If you keep your oil and air filters clean, then you basically keep your fuel, engine and air conditioning system free of dirt and contaminants.
Make sure you get the correct oil filter for your engine. A vehicle’s engine protects itself from wear and tear through the oil filter. So you must replace it regularly to protect your engine and optimize your vehicle’s performance. At Los Angeles oil change, we also check and replace oil filters during maintenance.
Transmission fluid is responsible for cooling and cleaning the internal transmission parts. It also creates the required hydraulic pressure which enables the automatic transmission to operate efficiently.
It is recommended by car manufacturers that you change your transmission fluid at regular intervals of after certain miles of driving. It is highly advisable that you exchange and replace your automatic transmission fluid according to your manufacturer’s recommendations and with our car transmission repair services.
Most vehicle owners do not bother to change the brake fluid of their vehicle. As your brake pads wear, the level of your fluid also decreases. The brake fluid is hygroscopic in nature, that is, it attracts moisture from the air.
Since a lot of your car parts are metallic, moisture can cause damage to valuable engine parts. You must also monitor and check your brake fluid level. Regular flushing out of the brake fluid and replacing it with a fresh one will prevent corrosion and failure of those metal components. At our Los Angeles brake repair shop, you can get all this work done.
Maintaining proper fluid levels and exchanging them periodically is essential for optimum performance and mileage. Your cooling system prevents the car from getting overheated. Over time, the cooling fluid gets contaminated and does not function as effectively.
Your cooling system can break down more easily than any other parts of your vehicle. A coolant flush at our car repair shop will not only change your coolant fluid but also will clean and remove the residues that build up inside the cooling system.
Our Los Angeles auto mechanic service will inspect your steering fluid reservoir, hoses and connections and then will replace the old worn fluid with new fluid. The new fluid allows other lubricants and oil to perform effectively. It removes harmful deposits from your steering system.

Smog is a serious environmental pollutant and can become a serious health hazard to people. It is, therefore, important that you perform smog check tests after every few years.

"I have a 6 series BMW and when my car began to smoke, I was very scared to say the least. I thought I was going to have to spend thousands upon thousands to fix the problem because it was "BMW" but turns out Armen was very knowledgeable and very reasonable with his prices. I would never take my car anywhere else."
"I'm really picky with my M5, I'm glad he's not a backyard joe mechanic. Took my E60 to Armen and received the car like it just rolled off the show room floor, he fixed both clutches and now this monster moves. I just don't know how to thank him! THE BMW DADDY ! He sure knows what he is doing ! Very very intelligent man, BMW CERTIFIED! I will see u in 7000 miles for an oil change :)"
"This has to be the best BMW service I have ever had and not only car wise but also customer service. I brought in my 545i BMW with leaky valves, and Armen and his team did a great job taking care of it and for a very good price. Armen even provided me with almost cost free car rental for the time my car was in the shop which I thought was great. He kept me updated through out the whole process and even after. "
