Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

Rely on Gary's Full Service Auto Repair in Aurora, CO 80012 to provide quality care for your vehicle's undercarriage. Stop by our shop to see how we can help you or call 303-364-8344 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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair.

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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair, 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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair 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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 303-364-8344 or visit Gary's Full Service Auto Repair 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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair, 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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair 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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair in Aurora, CO 80012 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. Gary's Full Service Auto Repair has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.

Custom Exhaust
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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair in Aurora, CO 80012, 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.

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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair, 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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair 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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair 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 Gary's Full Service Auto Repair at 303-364-8344 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.


What Our Customers Are Saying

I have lived in Denver for 4 years and I have been searching for a good, independent, fair, and reliable car repair place. Alot of the auto repair shops capitalize on my ignorance in regards to cars. Gary's DID not do this. They took their time... analyzed the problem and fixed it! I will not take my cars anywhere else as long as I live in Denver. Thank you so much!


-Julie M.

Great customer service. I couldn't ask for a better experience. Car was finished in a timely manner and all details and transactions were explained thoroughly.


-Haley M.

I realized I never actually left my review here. I went through Gary to get my AC unit for my 2009 Prius fixed in Spring 2018 but can't remember the exact date. Calling to make the appointment was a quick and easy process. He was able to see my car a lot sooner than I thought he'd be able to and was able to diagnose what the problem was quickly. I was hoping just for diagnostics to get done, but it turned out he was able to diagnose the problem and fix it all in one go. It was finished the same day I took it in and it made things so easy. I was running a few minutes late to pick up my car and he even stayed late so I could get it picked up and not have to wait until the next day. I would absolutely recommend calling Gary if your car is acting up.


-Alia G.

Wonderful mom and pop repair shop! Down to earth and up front with their customers. They won't rip you off, best car repair place I've ever been to.


-Vick M.

I had a pretty serious emergency with my jeep. Gary gave me all the data that would cover the repairs, and more. He was extremely professional and fair, as well as helpful in explaining what had to be done. His prices are very reasonable, his shop friendly, and they got my jeep done in one day. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has any kind of car repair.


-Lorise

Went in thinking i had major problem. They could of really taken me. I walk out with a fixed car for less than 100.00 and an oil change.


-Jamie

I called to see if they could work on my vintage, British car and although they didn't, the rep. suggested me to a place that did. This was such a relief! I'm so grateful for their knowledge on not only what they worked on, but other mechanics in their area.


-Ezzi

I found Gary's full service by chance off of the better business bureau's website for their rating of A+. Recently having moved across the country from Pittsburgh to Denver with my 150,000+ mile 2003 Trailblazer I found my self in need of a mechanic. After I arrived my car was still running but the ABS light was on and the check engine light was intermittantly flashing. I took the car to two other mechanics that told me the ABS computer was out and would cost $1000 dollars just to replace. I hesitated to do the work. Unexpectedly the car developed another problem and overheated. I had to make a decision fast. I had the car towed to Gary's. Not only was the very fair with his prices, fast with his service and honest he CORRECTLY DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM AND SAVED ME NEARLY $1000 dollars. I will never go anywhere else and recommend him to everyone I meet. He is everything you look for in a mechanic, no wonder he is still in business after 25 years! Go here I promise you will be happy!

This place is a jewel that I found in Aurora. It is a family owned business and the owner inspects everything before it leaves the shop. I actually waited 3 minutes while the owner went through my vehicle to make sure it was exactly the way it should be. This is old school customer service. What a breath of fresh air.


-Matt

After moving to the area almost 2 years ago, I was looking for a good independent auto shop. gary's was recommended I have found them to be competent and price competitive, and performing or recommending only work that should be done. This has been welcome after some experiences at a dealer.
