Chevrolet Auto Repair in San Diego

Pacific Automotive is experienced in all types of auto repair for your Chevy:

  • air conditioning
  • brake service and repair
  • check engine light and advanced diagnostics
  • cooling system maintenance and repair
  • clutch repair
  • engine repair
  • oil change and all scheduled maintenance
  • transmission repair

We’re up to date on all Chevy factory information and know what to keep a lookout for.

TIP:

The fuel filter in all vehicles, regardless of make or model, can become clogged when debris from the bottom of the gas tank gets sucked in as you’re nearly out of fuel. This starves the engine, even after a fill-up, leading to poor performance and eventually a damaged fuel pump. This is a frequent problem for 2002 through 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazers as their fuel gages are sometimes inaccurate. If you own one of these vehicles, don’t let the gas tank get too low.

Chevy Brake Service in San Diego

Everyone knows that the┬ábraking system can be a matter of life or death. Regular inspection should be performed at least twice a year, and the brake service schedule should be strictly followed. Any brake work should be performed by certified master mechanics, such as those at Pacific Auto. Chevy anti-lock braking sensors are known to fail a bit more often than on other autos; that’s just one of the things we’ll be checking.

Check Engine Light in Your Chevy

If your check engine light turns on, pay us a visit and we’ll check your car’s on-board computer codes and explain what we find. Don’t delay. The light might just mean it’s time for maintenance, but it could also be alerting you to an unsafe condition or something that if neglected could lead to expensive repairs. The auto computer is connected to an amazing number of sensors, and can spot problems in the ignition system, brakes, transmission, catalytic converter, and more.

If there is a repair problem, we’ll bring in our other diagnostic equipment and expertise to make sure we fix the right problem the first time, and save you money.

Chevrolet Engine Repair in San Diego

We’re experts in diagnostics and engine repair, including the ignition and electrical system. That was once pretty simple — battery, alternator, ignition coil, distributor, spark plugs. But now everything’s computerized and there’s numerous electrical and electronic accessories. Pacific Automotive is up to the challenge. Furthermore, we’re experienced all aspects of engines, including fuel pumps, and the cooling and emission control systems. Some Chevy vehicles have a problem with intake manifold gasket leaks, leading to overheating and poor performance. If that happens to be your problem, we know exactly what to look for and what to do.

Transmission Repair and Clutch Repair for Chevy in San Diego

Modern automatic transmissions are complicated, combining mechanics, hydraulics, sensors, and computers. We’re up to date and ready to handle all that. Whenever you experience anything unusual as your vehicle shifts gears or if you notice a fluid leak, it’s time to pay us a visit.

To avoid problems, our maintenance services include transmission inspections and fluid flushes. Beyond that we’re the ┬áSan Diego transmission repair experts for Chevys, and can also install a rebuilt transmission if that’s the best solution for you. Often, the repair is simply replacing an electrical or electronic component, or replacing the transmission fluid filter or a valve. Our expertise and integrity can save you thousands of dollars.

Manual transmissions are, of course simpler. But they do require maintenance and the occasional repair. You may also need a clutch repair, perhaps including flywheel resurfacing, or even a clutch replacement. As always, if you suspect a problem let Pacific’s master mechanics have a look.

Oil Changes and More For San Diego Chevy Drivers

We hope you’ll consider us for your next oil change, filter change, and lube service. We’re affordable and will provide expert professional and personal service unlike what you’ll find at quick-stop chains.

Pacific Automotive is also well qualified to handle all your scheduled maintenance needs, including brake service. We follow all factory requirements and use OEM parts, so your warranty will stay in place.
