4X4 SERVICES

4X4 SERVICES, Phoenix, AZ

The technicians at Art's Family Auto Repair 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.


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 Art's Family Auto Repair today for differentials examination and servicing.

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 Art's Family Auto Repair, 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 Art's Family Auto Repair 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 Art's Family Auto Repair 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 602-997-2006 or visit Art's Family Auto Repair 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 Art's Family Auto Repair in Phoenix, AZ 85021 today.

Transfer Cases
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 Art's Family Auto Repair for all your transmission repairs.

Transmissions
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 Art's Family Auto Repair today.

Wheel Bearings
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. Art's Family Auto Repair can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Art is fantastic. He is fair and does awesome work.

reviewicon

I have been going to Art for over 10 years, my brother and sister have also used him. We have a Toyota Prius, and and Infinity. Art has done great work for us, he always makes room if we have an urgent need. He has found some things and told us "no charge." Some things he finds, but says it is good for now, will need to be fixed in another 10k miles. He is honest and a pleasure to work with.

reviewicon

We have taken both our vehicles and our motor home to Art's and the care and attention to detail that he and his crew have shown for our vehicles is exemplary. You never have to question what was done, as Art will show you the photos he took to explain the problem and show the solution. I recently brought my car into Art's for routine maintenance. While there, I mentioned to Art that when I turned my right turn signal on the dome light lit. He called within two hours to say that he could permanently fix the problem; the part would be close to $300.00, or I could turn the left blinker assembly knob, 1/4 turn towards me and everything would work perfectly. He was right and he saved me $300. We absolutely would not take our vehicles anywhere else. Art is efficient, work is done in a very timely manner, he is honest and treats customers as if they were family, giving the very best and at a fair price.

Excellent auto mechanics. Owner is caring, courteous, and honest. Pricey but honestly and stands behind their work. Highly recommend.

My other half took our car in for some work, and these guys saved us so much time, money and hassle. Gave us a straight price- no range, no guessing. No other shop would do that- we called 5. When something else popped up, he gave him every option. Tried to charge instead of automatically replace our battery to save us money. Friendly and knowledgeable. We'll never go anywhere else.

The best mechanics--honest, knowlegable and nice. So reasonable and timely. Trust them implicitly. Art explains everything thoroughly and shows you the "why" something needs fixing. Cared for my cars for years. A recommendation from a friend whose family used them for decades. I have recommended them to lots of friends who have had the same excellent experience.
