Engine Repair

Engine Repair

If you’re having engine trouble, get your vehicle checked out as soon as possible. Otherwise, your car could suffer additional damage and you’d face even more costly repairs. Motor Brake & Wheel Services has the expertise to diagnose and solve your engine problems. Whether you have a vintage, custom, or new vehicle, you can trust us to get it right.

Transmission Repair

Transmission Repair

You vehicle's transmission ensures that the right amount of power goes to your wheels to drive at a given speed. If you don't keep it well-maintained, you'll lose fuel economy or may not be able to drive at all. At Motor Brake & Wheel Services, we have the expertise to solve any problems with automatic or manual transmissions.

Emissions System Repairs

Emissions System Repairs

When there’s a problem with the evaporative emissions control (EVAP) system, you probably won’t notice a change in how your car drives, but you will notice a check engine light. Our computer diagnostic system will detect an EVAP leak error code. That’s when we get to work. Your vehicle’s EVAP system captures fuel tank vapors and prevents them from escaping into the atmosphere. A compromised EVAP canister or corrosion of the vapor lines can cause a leak. Our technicians will pinpoint the leak or faulty component. We will fix it or replace it and reset the system. At Motor Brake & Wheel Services, we have the tools and expertise to diagnose your emissions system.

Heating & Air

Heating & Air

A well running HVAC system is vital in Southern California’s sweltering summer afternoons and chilly winter nights. That’s why it’s so important that HVAC repairs are done fast and done right. Our technicians can diagnose and fix all of your heating and A/C problems, including air temperature and air flow problems, unpleasant smells, foggy windshields, noises, and overheating.

Brakes

Brakes

At Motor Brake & Wheel Services, brakes are our middle name. When your safety is at stake, trust the experts. Your safety and the safety of others on the road depends on a well maintained braking system, which involves more than simply checking the fluid and changing your brake pads. We always perform an initial brake inspection and provide you with the manufacture recommended specifications. With this detailed information, you can make an informed decision regarding needed repairs. We are committed to making sure than you are safe on the road.
