To keep your vehicle running at peak performance, we provide undercar services that 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 Sarasota Mechanic.
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 Sarasota Mechanic, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.
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 Sarasota Mechanic's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 941-822-6151 or visit Sarasota Mechanic today.
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 Sarasota Mechanic can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.
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 Sarasota Mechanic, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.
A motor vehicle exhaust system is piping used to guide exhaust gasses away from the engine to the outdoors. Although the exhaust system's main purpose is to guide exhaust gases from the engine to the outdoors, it can be modified to increase engine power, reduce pollution, and reduce noise. To achieve this, you need to invest in a custom-made exhaust system.
At Sarasota Mechanic in Sarasota, FL 34240, we can create a custom-made stainless steel exhaust for your vehicle. We specialize in custom performance exhaust systems, stainless steel mufflers, mufflers, exhaust kits, racing mufflers, and exhaust accessories for a huge and diverse range of vehicles: customized cars, standard road cars, classic cars, kit cars, 4x4's, imports, and racecars.
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 Sarasota Mechanic in Sarasota, FL 34240 today.
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 Sarasota Mechanic today for differentials examination and servicing.
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 Sarasota Mechanic, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
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. Sarasota Mechanic has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.
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 Sarasota Mechanic 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 Sarasota Mechanic at 941-822-6151 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.
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 Sarasota Mechanic today.
Ash has been servicing my BMW 128 for the last year... I love that he will always answer my call or return my text! He does awesome work and at an affordable price. Very honest guy. He always makes me feel like a VIP. I would highly recommend him.
I am very pleased with the honest service I receive from this business every time I go. My fixer upper has needed a few services done to keep her running and I've always left with the problem fixed and not feeling like I've been taken advantage of. Great service, great staff.
Beautiful Shop. Ashly the owner is very professional, courteous, experienced, and most of all honest. The shop is spotless and neat. His now new location has air conditioned waiting room with TV. Much nicer and improved shop. I believe Ashly will continue to grow. And would recommend him to everybody.
We love Ashley! He services my BMW. The car was unfortunately sold to me by a (former) trusted family friend with multiple very obvious issues that turned up almost immediately after my purchase of this vehicle. Ashley has been very honest with me and very helpful in the diagnosing and fixing of these issues. Now my car runs beautifully and I actually enjoy driving it! He's very kind and cares a lot about his customers! Me and my boyfriend won't go to anyone else!
He was AMAZING, He let me know what caused the problem and then took his time explaining it. I'm a college girl so I don't know much about cars, and he was quick and efficient. He understood my budget and knew what was needed to be done, and what could wait to be done I would recommend him to anyone! He's amazing. Thank you Ashly I truly appreciate everything. My car is running better than ever now.
There is no mechanic I have ever trusted so unconditionally. To say Ashly is an expert is an understatement of his skills. Even when I lived in the North Port area I would still come to him for my repairs. Ashly is an honest, hard working guy and I will always bring my vehicle to him. I refer all of my friends to him and will continue to do so as he is a genuinely great mechanic!
I could not be happier with the service provided and the help I received including getting specific instructions for going to a part store to get everything taken care of. I will not go anywhere else for any work done because this is the best mechanic I've found so far in the area! Well worth the drive. Thank you!!
Work was done quickly and at a fair price. BTW, no appointment on July 4th. Awesome job. Many thanks to Ashley for making it happen!
I initially questioned the legitimacy of this businesses reviews because there were so many positive responses, but Sarasota Mechanic is the real deal and has earned all of these positive reviews! Ash is knowledgeable, competent, honest, consistent and reasonably priced. He is completely transparent about parts cost and labor while providing customers options so they can make the best decisions about their car repairs. This is the best and only mechanic you'll ever need!
Called these guys on Saturday out of a bit of desperation because I needed my alternator replaced by Monday before I drove up to maryland. Almost no other shops were open on Sunday or could even look at my car before Monday afternoon. These guys offered to come to me and fix my car for significantly cheaper than other places I called. And I didn't have to get my car towed over there. After they fixed it on sunday, they charged me even less than the quote. Overall, very good experience and I will definitely call them again.
