  • The best auto shop on earth. Gary has saved me money over and over again.
    -Dawn C. S.
  • No place better. Jarret and Gary are awesome! Nuff said!
    -Michael M.
  • Found the REAL problem with my A/C and didn't charge me the extra 600$ the dealership was trying to. Got it fixed same day. Awesome people!
    -Janel M.T.
  • As a car guy, I have trusted Gary and his team with my family?s cars and safety for almost ten years, including new gas lines and brakes on my classic car.
    -Kirk D.
  • Quick to figure out if what I think needs done is what really needs done. They seem to know more than most places about all the computer and sensor stuff going on in cars.
    -Benjamin R.
  • Gary and his crew are honest, fair and do quality work. They care.
    -Paul C.
  • Most folks tend to review only when they have a bad experience, but it was the positive experiences that led me to try out this repair shop. These guys seem honest and they did good work for a fair price. I am so glad I found them and hope to give them all my future business. Support this local shop if you can.
    -Tim C.
  • I have tried many different mechanics in Dripping Springs Texas and I found Austin Auto Repair to be the most honest and reliable mechanic. They are very accommodating and go the extra mile to help out their customers. We have been customers for 3+ years now and plan to continue using them.
    -Steven T.
  • A great repair shop with great prices. They beat the quotes of the dealer and another local repair shop by 30% or more on shocks and brakes. Friendly and helpful staff.
    -Andrew J.
  • These guys have been awesome. Any time I've talked to someone on the phone, they have been professional and clear. Their concern is for a well running car and happy customers. Their pledge to accurately & honestly diagnosis & repair your vehicle has been up held with my 2 cars that I have brought in. Once I had assumed my car was in very bad condition and informed James about the problem, they checked the parts I thought to be the problem, and came back with a much lower cost because the part in question was fine, and another part much easier to fix but associated with the original part was the problem.
    -Kris F.
  • This is the only place I take my car for whatever it needs! I feel blessed to find a car repair place that that is honest and I can trust. The owner and employees are wonderful, friendly, very helpful; and my experience has been that they have always done a great job on any work that I've needed done, I can get my car in quickly, I know I'm going to get a fair price and that only the work that is needed will be done. I highly recommend their service to anyone!
    -Gloria D.V.
  • I will never take my car anywhere else! Gary is always respectful and straightforward about what work needs to be done and what we should watch, but can wait on a bit. We only have the one car, so getting it worked on can put us in a bind at times, but he's great about working us in to a busy schedule with minimal disruption of our lives. Jarrett is an excellent and efficient mechanic and we always feel welcome and comfortable - even when I have a carload of kids with me. Pricing is fair and questions are always answered patiently and expertly.
    -Michele T.
  • We love you Gary! And we appreciate the great, friendly, timely, and excellent service for these past years--we continue to be your devoted customers.
    -Mary & Kim
  • Gary is honest and all for your best interest. I will always take my vehicles here!
    -Al P.

ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance. It also impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine. Trust the experts at Austin Auto Repair to help you protect your investment. Call us at 512-288-4932 or visit our shop in Austin 78736.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

Diesel
Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:

  • Changing the oil & filter
  • Changing the air filter
  • Changing the fuel filter
  • Bleeding the fuel system
  • Draining the water separators
  • Refilling the urea injection system

You can count on the experts at Austin Auto Repair to help your diesel engine last a long time.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 512-288-4932 or visit Austin Auto Repair today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Austin Auto Repair today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Austin Auto Repair in Austin, TX 78736. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Austin Auto Repair, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 512-288-4932 or visit Austin Auto Repair today.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Austin Auto Repair in Austin, TX 78736.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Austin Auto Repair, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 512-288-4932 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.
