Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

Rely on Action Auto Care in Ramona, CA 92065 to provide quality care for your vehicle's undercarriage. Stop by our shop to see how we can help you or call 760-788-4849 for more information.

To keep your vehicle running at peak performance, we provide undercar services that include:

Alignment
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 Action Auto Care.

Anti-Lock Brakes
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 Action Auto Care, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.

Brakes
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 Action Auto Care 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 Action Auto Care's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 760-788-4849 or visit Action Auto Care today.

Chassis
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 Action Auto Care, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.

Differentials
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 Action Auto Care today for differentials examination and servicing.

Differential Flush
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 Action Auto Care in Ramona, CA 92065 today.

Exhaust
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. Action Auto Care has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.

Driveline
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 Action Auto Care, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Tires
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 Action Auto Care today.

Shocks
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 Action Auto Care today.

Struts
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 Action Auto Care at 760-788-4849 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.

I have always had a great experience when I have taken my car to action auto. David and his staff have always been very nice, helpful, honest, and professional. They let you know what needs to be fixed/replaced immediately, what may need to be soon or in the near future, and if possible give you options of the such. I won't take my wife's car and my car anywhere else!

The guys at Action Auto are the greatest. They really care about the work they do and their prices are great. David the owner is honest, friendly and professional as are all the mechanics who work for him. I highly recommend Action Auto. I am so pleased to have found such a reliable mechanic shop to keep my Honda in excellent running condition.


-Phyllis L.

Just an awesome place with a knowledge and trustworthy people, always friendly and always upfront with whatever problem you vehicle has.


-Leopoldo L.

I took my truck in because the check engine light was on and no one was able to retrieve the codes. Honest and knowledgeable, Action Auto was able to suggest a fairly simple repair and their diagnosis was correct. Affordable and relatively quick too, they have earned my business!


-Alison M.

I HIGHLY recommend Dave at Action Auto. They brought back my confidence in mechanics. I brought my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee in to find out why the number 6 cylinder kept missing. After all the tests he done he called me and said it was a head gasket and possibly the valves but he couldn't tell me for sure until he brought the heads to machine shop. Once he found out that the valves did need to be done he gave me a call and let me know I told him to proceed. The job was done efficiently on time and a bit under what he quoted and done correctly. He has a great team there and a great lead mechanic. Dave is extremely honest and fair and does care about getting it done right. Thank you Dave, we'll done..
