Engine Maintenance

Engine Replacement
The engine converts energy into useful mechanical motion. This amazing machine is what keeps your vehicle moving. Although generally reliable, a car engine is susceptible to damage and breakdown. When this happens, do not sit and stress over it. Take action. Take the vehicle to a mechanic for an engine replacement. Bring it to OTA Auto Care.

Transmission Maintenance
Any car part manufacturer will tell you that preventive maintenance is critical to the part's lifespan. Like other auto parts, car transmissions aren't built to last forever. However, you can increase the transmission's lifespan by performing regular preventive maintenance. The easiest way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy is to provide regular transmission maintenance for your vehicle. To have your transmission maintained by experts, visit OTA Auto Care.

Transmission Replacement
In motor vehicles, the transmission usually refers to the gear box, which uses gears and gear trains to transmit speed and torque from a rotating power source to another device. You can have your car's transmission replaced with a new, rebuilt, remanufactured, repaired or used transmission. For more information contact OTA Auto Care in Lanoka Harbor, NJ. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

Transmission Repair
Our services include transmission repair on both manual and automatic transmissions. The first step in getting you back on the road is assessing your transmission to accurately determine the source of the problem. In some cases, we are able to repair your transmission simply with adjustments, replacing external seals, or replacing accessible parts. To have this done by specialists, call 609-242-1146 to talk to the mechanics of OTA Auto Care today.

Transmission Repair and Rebuild
When it comes to automatic transmission repair, there are several options: buying a new one, buying a remanufactured one or having yours rebuilt. Each of the above options has its own share of advantages and disadvantages. Of the three options, rebuilt transmissions are the most economical. A rebuilt transmission involves removing the transmission from the car, disassembling it, replacing worn out parts, reassembling it, and then reinstalling it. To have this done by specialists, call 609-242-1146 to talk to the mechanics of OTA Auto Care today.

Transmission Flush
Although most manufacturers recommend a transmission flush every 30,000 miles or every two years, some symptoms may indicate that you need a transmission flush sooner. Some of the symptoms that indicate that your car needs a transmission flush sooner are: transmission grinding or strange noises, problems shifting gears, slipping gears, surging of the car, and delay in vehicle movement. Flushing the used fluid from the transmission washes away tiny particles of dirt, clutch material, and metal shavings. For all your transmission flush needs, call 609-242-1146 or visit OTA Auto Care today - we are transmission experts.

Timing Belt
A timing belt is a part of your car's internal combustion engine. The belt synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at the correct timings. Also, the belt prevents the piston from striking the valves in an interference engine. A timing Belt is a rubber belt that usually features teeth on the inside surface, while a timing chain is a metal roller chain. Most cars we drive now have timing belts instead of timing chains and gears. Although different manufacturers have their recommended mileage, you need to have your car's timing belt checked regularly. To have it checked by experts, contact OTA Auto Care today. We specialize in Honda timing belt replacement.

Cylinder Head
A cylinder head is the closed end of a cylinder (located in a car's engine block). It sits above the cylinder block, closing the top of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. The cylinder head coordinates airflow in and out of the engine. Since the cylinder head's chief function is to seal the cylinders properly, insufficient compression results in the car being difficult to drive. To have your cylinder head checked and repaired, talk to OTA Auto Care's cylinder head repair and reconditioning specialists today.

Cylinder Block
A cylinder block is the powerhouse for the motor vehicle. The solid cast car part houses the cylinders and their components (gaskets, valves, and seals) inside a lubricated and cooled crankcase. Since it is one of the most important parts of your car, the block is designed to be extremely strong and sturdy. Although strong and sturdy, the block is susceptible to failure resulting in a vehicle that won't start. Cracked blocks, porous blocks, core plug, or freeze plug failure are some of the problems facing cylinder blocks. Call 609-242-1146 to talk to the mechanics of OTA Auto Care about your cylinder block problems.

Authorized Jasper Dealer
Give Your Vehicle a New Lease on Life with JASPER. That big oil slick in your driveway or those strange noises from under your hood don't have to mean you'll be saddled with a new car payment soon. Instead, your trusted installer at OTA Auto Care can drop in a completely remanufactured JASPER gas or diesel engine, transmission or differential and get you back on the road again quickly! Call OTA Auto Care at 609-242-1146 to schedule an appointment. Proudly remanufactured in the U.S.A.

  • -Ed F.

    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 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.


  • -Chuck R.

    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.


  • -Kristyn S.

    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!!!


  • -Stefania J.

    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!!


  • -Hillary W.

    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!!!


  • -Jarred T.

    Great people, great service, and they have been helping out my family for years.


  • -Lou F.

    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.


  • -Val H.

    Excellent customer service and reasonable prices! Thank You!


  • -Manny G.

    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!


  • -Thomas F.

    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.


  • -Lorraine K.

    Joe & all at OTA always do what is best for you and your car!!!!
