Did you know that regularly changing the oil in your vehicle is one of the simplest, most effective and inexpensive ways to help protect its engine life? Oil lessens wear, reduces friction, and forms a seal between the pistons, rings, and cylinder walls. The oil also helps cool engine parts and even dampens the shock and noise of moving parts. For all your oil change needs, call 609-242-1146 or visit OTA Auto Care today. We have years of experience helping drivers with oil changes and other auto maintenance needs.
Motor Oil Basics
Do you know the oil basics? Did you know that even some auto mechanics do not know the oil basics? In order for your car's engine to do its job properly, it is vital to have clean, fresh oil. The oil used in your car has two primary ingredients: base oil and additives. The base oil allows the motor oil to perform its vital function - lubricating the engine's moving parts to protect them against wear and tear caused by friction. The additives provide additional engine protection by helping to prevent the oil from deteriorating under the engine's extreme temperature conditions. At OTA Auto Care, we are motor oil experts - we will help you with motor oil basics. Call us at 609-242-1146 or visit our auto repair shop in Lanoka Harbor, NJ 08734 today.
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on OTA Auto Care for all your vehicle's repair needs.
You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit OTA Auto Care today. The mechanics at OTA Auto Care will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on OTA Auto Care for all your vehicle's repair needs.
You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit OTA Auto Care today. The mechanics at OTA Auto Care will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.
Headlight and Bulb Replacement
To maintain maximum visibility (and keep you safe), you should always make sure that your vehicle's headlight bulbs are in good working condition. Although replacing faulty headlight bulbs is a simple and quick process (takes very little time), you need to rely on an experienced auto mechanic to handle your headlight and bulb replacement. This way, you will have quality bulbs installed by experts. Remember, it is a critical part of your car's maintenance and your safety. For all your headlight and bulb replacement needs, call or visit OTA Auto Care today.
Wiper Blade Replacement
Visibility is very important to safe driving. Having properly functioning wipers can help keep you safer on the road. If your car's wipers are not wiping well or are leaving lines, have them replaced immediately. To have wiper blades fitted on your vehicle, call 609-242-1146 or visit OTA Auto Care today. We will fit your car with high quality and effective wiper blades.
PCV Valve Change
The positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve is a very important part of some cars' emissions control systems. This valve, which is usually plugged into a rubber grommet in the valve cover, is a one-way passage for gases to escape from the engine's crankcase. With time, the PCV valve becomes clogged with sludge from the contaminants in the exhaust gases. If your car has a PCV valve, make sure it is regularly cleaned and (if necessary) replaced. To have your car's PCV valve changed by experts, call or visit OTA Auto Care in Lanoka Harbor, NJ 08734 today.
Fuel Injection Cleaning
A fuel injector is an electronically controlled valve that supplies the engine with pressurized fuel. When driving, the oxygen sensors tell the engine if it is getting too much air, which signals the fuel injectors to give the engine spurts of pressurized fuel. Since fuel injectors are small pieces of equipment (and the part that squirts the fuel is even smaller), any little piece of dirt can clog it. A clogged fuel injector will hurt your vehicle's performance. To avoid misfires, poor emission rating, poor performance, and rough idle have the car's fuel injectors cleaned regularly. For professional fuel injection cleaning services, call 609-242-1146 or visit OTA Auto Care today.
Just like replacing your engine oil, transmission service is part of your routine vehicle maintenance. The service involves removing and examining the pan, cleaning or replacing the screen or filter, cleaning the pan, reinstalling the pan (with a new pan gasket), replacing the old oil with new, and adding an additive package. Adding new fluid restores the holding power between the clutches. This service helps improve lubrication and helps maximize the life of the transmission. For all your transmission repair needs, visit or call OTA Auto Care in Lanoka Harbor, NJ 08734 today. We offer transmission services, reseal services, and clutch services.
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.
Transmission Flush & Filter
Transmission flush and filter change is a comprehensive transmission maintenance service that involves the replacement of old, degraded transmission fluid and filter with new. The service is meant to prolong the life of your transmission. At OTA Auto Care, we offer the most comprehensive transmission flush and filter service. We will exchange your old transmission oil, remove dirt, replace the filter, clean the screen, and replace used pans. Give us a call at 609-242-1146 or visit our auto shop in Lanoka Harbor, NJ 08734.
A radiator is the part of your vehicle that keeps the engine cool and protects it from excessive heating. To be cool, the radiator needs to remain clean - always. With time, sludge, rust and other solid deposits build up inside your car's radiator. These make the cooling system become clogged and less effective. This in effect hurts your vehicle's performance. A regular radiator flush is enough to keep the system in shape. For this reason, make radiator flushing a part of your routine car maintenance schedule. For all your radiator flush needs, call 609-242-1146 or visit OTA Auto Care today.
Coolant System Flush
A car's air conditioning system contains a coolant which transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the a/c coolant becomes old and dirty. The old coolant will negatively impact the system's performance. To make sure the system is working effectively, consider having a regular coolant system flush. A coolant flush is basic maintenance for your car's cooling system. Call 609-242-1146 or visit OTA Auto Care in Lanoka Harbor, NJ 08734 for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. Ensure maximum performance from your vehicle's heating and cooling systems today.
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 OTA Auto Care's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 609-242-1146 or visit OTA Auto Care today.
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 OTA Auto Care in Lanoka Harbor, NJ 08734 today.
Power Steering Flush
Power steering fluid is the hydraulic fluid that transmits the power in a steering wheel. Servicing the power steering involves flushing out the old power steering fluid and adding fresh fluid. A power steering flush will definitely help prolong the life of the power steering components. Failure to have periodic power steering flushes results in important parts like the power steering pump, the seals, power steering rack, and the O-rings wearing out. To have a comprehensive power steering flush, call 609-242-1146 or visit OTA Auto Care today.
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.
Joe & all at OTA always do what is best for you and your car!!!!
