Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

EG Automotive Center approaches caring for your car or truck from the ground up. That means that before we look over the internal components of your ride we take time to make sure that you're working with a solid foundation. Our comprehensive undercar inspections and services cover an important area of your car that can easily be neglected and give the foundation of your vehicle the care and attention it deserves.

Avoid disaster by coming in and having your undercarriage checked out today. Call us at 732-329-6300 or visit us in Dayton, NJ so we can schedule an appointment to ensure your car is in tip-top shape!

Our competitively priced undercar services include:

Alignment
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 EG Automotive Center.

Anti-Lock Brakes
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At EG Automotive Center, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.

Brakes
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at EG Automotive Center can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.

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 EG Automotive Center's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 732-329-6300 or visit EG Automotive Center today.

Chassis
A chassis is the car's internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects. At EG Automotive Center, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.

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 EG Automotive Center today for differentials examination and servicing.

Differential Flush
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 EG Automotive Center in Dayton, NJ 08810 today.

Exhaust
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better - for you, your car, and the environment. EG Automotive Center has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.

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 EG Automotive Center, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Tires
As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition. For all your tire needs, contact EG Automotive Center today.

Shocks
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit EG Automotive Center today.

Struts
Much like a shock absorber (shocks), your car's struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road's surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant and uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your car's suspension. This means that struts support your car's weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time. Call EG Automotive Center at 732-329-6300 if you have questions about the struts on your car. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.

    The experience I had here was amazing! I am not from the area and while driving to a conference my tire pressure light came on. I still had about 50 more miles and was concerned I was getting a flat or had a leak and didn't have a tire pressure gauge with me. I just so happened to be passing EG Automotive so I pulled in hoping they could help. They were friendly and extremely helpful. They immediately took my car back and tried to troubleshoot the issue. I waited at most, 10 minutes, if that. They checked my tires for a leak and filled them with air. I wish I lived closer so I could continue to give them my business!

I will never go anywhere else for my car's repairs or maintenance.

  • -Eileen T.

    Finally found a local automotive center that is professional, responsive and skilled. We've been blessed to find a family business who is fair priced and always accommodating. We have 2 older cars and, as seniors, truly appreciate their level of competence and customer service.

    Wonderful local business, knowledgeable, courteous and HONEST, really honest and their prices are fair, never inflated. I trust them completely, a very rare commodity in this day and age, especially in this type of business.


  • -Erin M.

    Great guys. Our car over heated as we were traveling with two toddlers - it was Good Friday and EG was open. They checked out the car, determined we could make it to our destination, gave us a couple gallons of water (just in case it over heated again) and didn't charge us. Thank you!!


  • -Jill H.

    I've taken my car here for years, and the guys at EG never let me down, repairs and routine maintenance are always done promptly and well. Unlike other car repair places, they never overcharge or make up fake things that need to be done RIGHT AWAY for the tune of several thousand dollars or else my car is liable to spontaneously combust. The EG guys are courteous and helpful. I hope EG never goes out of business!


  • -Chris H.

    Simply excellent.


  • -Stephen M.

    Great people.


  • -Kevin B.

    Won't go anywhere else, this is the best service I've gotten from all the auto shops I've been to!


  • -Jessica P.

    I've been coming to EG Automotive Center since 2014. Besides being friendly and professional, I feel like I can trust them. I've been told by them before "You could get that done, but you don't need to. Don't waste your money". That made me trust them. I appreciate their honesty, even if it prevents them from adding to their cost.


  • -Robert J.

    Friendly, professional, and courteous. The price of my repairs was very fair. I couldn't be happier with the service. Joey & Pete know how to treat a customer; with respect!

    Thanks for checking out my tires when I got my oil change. I didn't know how bad the tires were. You gave me a great price for tires and now my wife and kids can drive safely.
