The technicians at OTA Auto Care have years of experience working on standard 4-wheel drive (4x4) vehicles as well as all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles. AWD is a full-time 4-wheel-drive system (all four wheels receive torque from the engine simultaneously) that employs a center differential that allows each tire to rotate at different speeds.
We understand the special needs of these vehicles. These are some of the services we offer.
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 OTA Auto Care.
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 OTA Auto Care 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 OTA Auto Care, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let OTA Auto Care replace your worn out hubs today.
Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit OTA Auto Care today.
Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 609-242-1146 or visit OTA Auto Care today.
A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit OTA Auto Care in Lanoka Harbor, NJ 08734 today.
A transfer case is a part of a four wheel drive system found in four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts. Trust the automotive experts at OTA Auto Care for all your transmission repairs.
Transmission repair is not something to take lightly. The transmission is connected to key parts of your vehicle and needs to be working properly for your safety. Transmission services include replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent transmission damage. Typical transmission issues that may lead to repair may include shifting issues, slipping, stalling, fluid leaking, and the service light turning on. If you are concerned that you may need transmission repair, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment at OTA Auto Care today.
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. OTA Auto Care can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
Awesome serive! Very detialed about all the problems on the car - even if it has nothing to do with the original reason as to why the car is at the shop. The staff and mechanics just want you to be safe in your car! They will only fix what you want to be fixed, but will explain any other problems they come across. I have a 1992 car that was there to be repaired. I already knew of the existing problems - exhaust leak, right turn singnal out, break hose needing to be replaced. The reason the car was there was for another issue that was to complicated and to cold to fix at home. The mechanic noted the other issues, but only fixed the original problem. The prices are reasonable (car repairs are never cheap to start with) and OTA is honest. This shop came highly referred by friends who have been taking their cars thers for a very long time. I would go back in the future and strongly suggest OTA to anyone else having car troubles!!!
My wife mentioned to me that the front end of her car was making noise. I called OTA and asked if they could take a look at it. They told me to bring it in. They looked at the front end found the problems, then called me and told me the price for the entire job and the price for what had to be done now (I went with the entire job). They fixed my wifes car to her liking. OTA was recommended to us by our neighbor and WE recommend them to anyone that needs an honest, polite, good priced and knowlegeable mechanics Thank you OTA staff for a fantastic job. You are our new Auto Repair Shop.
OTA is the cleanest ,friendliest and most professional repair shop around. All work is done in a timely manor to the highest standards . My father told me you could tell how much pride some one took in their work by how clean they keep their work area/place of business . OTA proves him right.The shop is spotless from the parking lot to the service bays. The office staff is friendly and respectful . And most important of all the the work is performed to the highest standards with your safety and satisfaction a priority.
OTA was efficient, proficient and professional. Found the root cause of the problem and addressed it. Highly recommend if u need good service.
OTA was recommended to me by my neighbor so I went to them. They did a great job at a good price. I'll be a returning customer.
First brought my car to OTA from a recommendation for a timing belt replacement. They are upfront and honest, a dying trend for mechanics these days. I have and do recommend OTA to anyone I come across looking for shop they can trust to do the job right the first time.
I had a really Great experience at OTA. I made an appointment. Left the car an explained all I needed to. The car was fixed. They even did the inspection. Now I?m all good. Car is running great. I would tell everyone I know to go here. No question the best service.
Joe & all at OTA always do what is best for you and your car!!!!
Had a flat this morning! OTA had me back on the road quickly and for only $34.
Everyone here is extremely helpful. They do a great job, they call you to let you know how much it's going to cost before they start the work, and everyone is professional and courteous. I highly recommend this place always.
The crew at OTA have been servicing my 2002 Tacoma since the warranty expired 13 years ago, and they always do a professional job for a reasonable price. This time, I was due for an oil change, and since the truck is 16 years old, Jeff suggested I replace the timing belt even though I still have low miles on the truck. I got a thorough rebuild of the front of my engine including a new coolant pump, belts, and hoses. The price was less than I expected, and the truck runs great.
OTA has provided good customer service for us for several years, on several vehicles we owned. They never try to sell you anything unnecessary. The quality of the work is always the best.
OTA always gives me good service, great communication and fair pricing. They stand behind their work and do not "create" problems that are not really problems!!!!! This is the only independent shop I ever use.
Excellent place to take my car, am visiting from out of state. Thank you Joe and Jeff!
Had car dropped off during weekend when closed due to engine troubles. Returned call first thing Monday morning when they received envelope and key from drop off slot, explained when and what they were going to check. Returned call with diagnosis very quick. Thank you Jeff and Joe.
Would not take my car anywhere else. This group is A-one. I have never been disappointed.
They put rear brakes in my Lexus SUV. They are always professional and courteous. From Jeff and Joe along with the gentleman at the front desk. Outstanding effort for a very fair price.
They are outstanding. Every time I go there I don't have to worry about my cars. They're very reasonable, and I trust them.
Nice people who do really good work. The always take good care of us.
Lovely people who care about what your car needs to keep going and allow you & family to be safe on the road. Last oil change - they topped off the oil, cleaned windows, and vacuumed up foot areas. Coffee and free TV to watch while you are waiting.
Always receive outstanding service.
Always a good experience at OTA. They are efficient, friendly, and professional. I trust them for anything at all that my car needs.
Honest. Friendly. Knowledgeable. Fair rates. If you need a mechanic shop, then this is the place. They explain all their repairs and why you need them now or which can wait. They have always done right by me and my family, since we started going there almost 10 years ago.
Very good people. They really know how to take care of you and your car at a reasonable price.
Great people, great mechanics, great service. Very caring. Your car is in good hands.
Very professional. The people there are very nice and courteous, and the job is always done right. If you have to leave your car there, they'll give you a ride home and pick you up when it's done.
Great staff, knowledgeable mechanics and affordable prices. Great place to have your car serviced.
Good honest shop.
Always friendly, reliable and knowledgeable.
Got my motor vehicle inspection done here...have a beautiful car that I am very particular about...they did a magnificent job...quick turnaround...respectful...nice paved parking lot and well kept facility...made the experience painless and proficient...highly recommend for anyone who needs car care or inspection services.
Excellent customer service with honest work! Great shop and fair pricing. Don't trust your vehicle anywhere else!
You will get honest answers and excellent parts. Joe and the gang go above and beyond each and every time. I have used them for 9 years for every personal and business vehicle I own. I don't let anyone else touch my vehicles.
Great local company!
Best mechanics in the area. Friendly, reasonable prices. Would recommend them to anyone in the area.
They do great work.
OTA did a great job when I had a problem with a set of Goodyears I purchased 2 years ago. they stepped up and handled the problem and provided a loaner car for me. Not even a car dealer will do that! They are winners and know what customer care is about. Once again, good job.
Never ever a bad experience. Always answer the phone promptly, always explain EVERYTHING that needs to be done to your car with very reasonable pricing. The staff as a whole are trustworthy and experienced.
Was referred to OTA when my old mechanic retired. Very trustworthy, quick turnaround & loaner cars available.
I had my exhaust manifold done there, the price was reasonable, and they told me 2 days it would take. I had it back within 1 day, and my truck is not making the loud noise any more. The staff was excellent too. They even drove me home.
Very professional service at a great price. The mechanics are very knowledgeable and do a good job! Satisfied Customer 5 Stars!
Great location, great people, excellent service.
Great service and stellar customer service.
Friendly staff, fair pricing, felt like family.
OTA has been repairing my car since I moved to New Jersey some years ago, and I have never had an issue with my car after it was serviced by OTA. I trust them implicitly to do the necessary repairs that they recommend when I bring my car in for servicing. They often go above and beyond what is obvious and repair things I may not be aware of. I drive away from their facility knowing my car is in the best shape possible for safe driving. I am pleased to write this review to thank them for their honesty and expertise in auto repair.
Definitely the best automotive shop there is. Have been a customer for about 15 years and wouldn't go anywhere else. Even with the specials a new car dealer throws at us, we still would rather go to OTA. Highly knowledgeable, professional, quick with appointments and turn arounds. Staff treats customers like family.
Finally, a repair shop you can trust. I have an old Buick, went to ANOTHER PLACE and was told it would cost almost $2,000 needing a radiator, etc. A friend suggested I try OTA. Not only did I not need a radiator, but they fixed it for $213.00. Amazing! I'll never go anywhere else!!!
Someone recommended I go to OTA, and as soon as I got there, someone went for a ride in my truck, listened to the problem and got my truck in the same day to fix it. My truck is running great and problems are fixed!! Very happy with their services. Thank you guys!!
We moved here last year and have brought both cars to OTA for maintenance. Today we found ourselves at a deserted Gille Park, in the rain, with 2 kids, a dog and a big old dead battery. Joe from OTA ran up and gave us a jump, totally going out of his way to be friendly and helpful. Thank you, Joe and OTA. We will be in this week, and your customer service, helpfulness, and expertise have made us customers for life! Thank you!!!
Great people, great service, and they have been helping out my family for years.
If you take your vehicle to another service shop, you've made a mistake. Great people, fast service, and the prices are second to none.
Excellent customer service and reasonable prices! Thank You!
I was recommended by my best friend's girlfriend to go to OTA, because they are honest mechanics and will get the job done. And that's the truth. The top end of my engine had to be redone, and they fixed other little things with my car that I didn't even know about! They're really great people, and I will never take my car anywhere else!
I first went there because he did a favor for my daughter. He spent about an hour tracking a tire down at another center. He would not accept anything for his time. Jeff is now a friend and he cares.
