More on Our Most Popular Services & Areas of Automotive Expertise

  • Diagnostics


    For any auto repair shop in business today, diagnostic skill and modern diagnostic equipment are essential. At Stringer Auto Repair, LLC, we have up-to-date scanners for newer vehicles, and experience troubleshooting tough issues, both with and without the aid of computerized diagnostics. If any of your vehicle warning lights are on, or your car just “doesn’t feel right,” trust us to accurately pinpoint the issue, and to fix it correctly the first time. 

  • Brake Repair

    Brake Repair

    Let’s stop and talk about brakes—they’re crucial to your safety, the safety of your passengers, and the safety of other drivers on the road. If you’re noticing signs that there may be a problem with your brakes, such as squealing, pulling, or “spongy” brakes, seeking out brake service is absolutely necessary, and it can save you money down the (brake) line. Our mechanics are trained in repairing front and rear brake systems, and all accompanying components.

  • AC Repair & Service

    A/C Repair & Service

    Your vehicle’s air conditioning system provides you with a comfortable ride come summer, and helps prevent driver fatigue. It’s also true that if your A/C isn’t working properly, you’ll not only be sweating, you could be damaging additional air conditioning system components. For instance, an A/C system operating on low refrigerant due to a leak will eventually damage the compressor—an expensive A/C repair we can help you avoid.

  • Alignments


    If you’re experiencing pulling or vibrations while driving your car, or you’ve noticed uneven tire wear, or poor gas mileage, you may need a wheel alignment. Take it from us—we’ve seen all kinds of problems caused by misaligned wheels—poor alignment isn’t something to ignore, or procrastinate about. Instead, bring your vehicle to Stringer Auto Repair for a precision wheel alignment. We’ll get your car straightened out and running smoothly.

  • Scheduled Maintenance

    Scheduled Maintenance

    Staying on top of scheduled maintenance, including oil changes, tire rotation, and fluid top-offs, is necessary to preserve your vehicle’s value, safety, and dependability. Interval checks also help you avoid serious breakdowns and minimize the likelihood of needing a high-cost auto repair. At Stringer Auto Repair, we emphasize scheduled maintenance as the smart and convenient way to keep your car running well.

  • Oil Changes

    Oil Changes

    When you drive your car, the engine becomes very hot, and heat makes oil break down. Broken down oil doesn’t move through your engine well, which means the oil can’t do its job of lubricating engine components. That’s why regular oil changes are very important for keeping your engine functioning properly. When we finish your oil change, your engine will run under optimal conditions, with a new oil filter and fresh oil.
