If you live and drive in Virginia, you must have your vehicle inspected by a state-approved auto repair shop or inspection station annually. Guaranteed Auto Service is a licensed Virginia State Inspection Station ready to perform your Virginia State inspection, as well as any necessary services to ensure your inspection goes smoothly. If you fail to have your vehicle inspected, you may be fined, and you won’t be allowed to renew your registration, so don’t wait if you’ve recently purchased a vehicle or you’re due for an inspection.
Modern vehicles with computerized engine control systems have a certain amount of built-in self-diagnostic capability to identify problems affecting engine performance, drivability, and emissions. When a fault is detected, the computer will store a diagnostic trouble code in its memory and illuminate the check engine light. Our mechanics are equipped with modern diagnostic technology and tried-and-true experience to pinpoint the exact issue causing your check engine light to come on.
With modern vehicles, there are several ways to tell if your brake system needs service. Most cars have brake wear sensors that cause a screeching sound when your brakes have reached the end of their lifecycle. You may also hear the traditional indicators you have a brake problem—squeaks, squeals, and/or grinding noises, indicating your brake pads are completely worn away, and you’re hearing metal on metal. We can inspect, resurface, and turn your brake rotors and calipers as needed to ensure your brakes won’t let you down.
For big, complicated jobs, like transmission repair and service, you can feel confident bringing your vehicle to Guaranteed Auto Service. Our ASE-certified mechanics are qualified to handle transmission rebuilds, transmission replacements, clutch repair, and other transmission-related services for automatic, standard, and overdrive transmissions. In many cases, you’ll need to weigh the pros and cons of committing to a transmission repair or replacement. We’ll help you make a smart decision based on your needs and budget.
When oil breaks down over time, it becomes less effective as a lubricant, which means parts of your engine will rub together and wear out, potentially leading to the need for expensive repairs and replacements. As your car ages, routine oil changes become even more important to prevent loss of performance and efficiency. When you come to Guaranteed Auto Service for an oil change and lube service, we promise to make it as quick and convenient as possible, and we’ll perform a complimentary 22-point safety inspection.
As your mechanics, we hope to help you avoid the need for emergency auto repairs, but sometimes they are necessary. Pay attention to any warning signs your vehicle may be on the verge of a breakdown and let us look under the hood as soon as possible if you notice anything out of the ordinary, such as brake noises, abnormal smells, smoke, high engine temperature, or poor engine performance. For emergency auto repairs, we’ll help you get your vehicle to our shop and do everything we can to put you at ease while we fix your car.
