The technicians at AutoVaun 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.
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 AutoVaun today.
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 AutoVaun for all your transmission repairs.
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 AutoVaun today for differentials examination and servicing.
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 AutoVaun, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
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 AutoVaun.
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. AutoVaun can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
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 AutoVaun 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 AutoVaun 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 480-807-6555 or visit AutoVaun 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 AutoVaun in Mesa, AZ 85215 today.
Honest efficient and straight forward, they were willing to walk me through the work needed and answered all my questions.
We have been going to Autovaun for years, they are outstanding. They are not a discount service center so do not expect to save money over a dealership, but they are truly honest, there have been many times where a dealer told me one thing, with multiple items needing to be replaced and at a huge expense and autovaun found and repaired the actual single broken part. We have never had an issue with any work done and all the repairs have lasted us.
They filled my AC with freon and put in a dye that would let them know where the leak was. Since it was leaking I had them fix the ac. While there they noted my check engine light was on, explained to me it was most likely the catalytic converter and called the dealer finding out it was still under warranty. He told me to have them run a diagnostic. Sure enough, the catalytic converter needed to be replaced and everything was covered. I really appreciate Autovaun for going above and beyond to help me out like that.
Quick in, low wait time, and quick out for headlight bulb replacements. Saved me over $100 instead of going to the stealership. I would definitely come here again .
Care (oil change/maintenance) for our two vehicles. "Service with a smile." Over the past few years Autovaun has taken care of pop-up problems with our vehicles (Camry and Buick... older models) with fair prices, timely service and a family attitude that beckons us back...and we go. I trust these folks... and that's not an easy thing to do nowadays with car repair shops...whether it be at dealerships, franchises or independents.... YUP... highly recommended! Thanks Autovaun!!
Have taken our cars to Vaun's for several years. They are friendly and helpful. The prices seem far and they have always stood behind everything they do. They are honest and will tell you if something that needs repaired can wait for a bit or is emergent.
Our family has taken our cars to Autovaun for about ten years. They have always been courteous and personable. We are very protective of our vehicles and the team at Autovaun are too. They are extremely fair in their pricing. They recommend any maintenance that should be considered while also providing an explanation to the effects on the vehicle if the service is not performed and or how long (distance) until it will become a problem. In other words, they are hyper-vigilant about customer costs.
Had upper and lower control arms replaced on my 99 Chevy van at a GMC dealership. Drove it down the highway and it was drifting to the right. Took it back to the dealership. They adjusted the alignment but it still drifted to the right. They told me to go to a frame shop...my frame must be bent...nothing more they could do. Within an hour...Autovaun professional tech had my van perfectly aligned. Thank you guys for blessing my sock offs. Great job!
A regular customer for 4 years now, I continue to return to AutoVaun because they consistently provide a positive experience. The staff are welcoming and knowledgeable, and offer a level of customer service rarely seen any more.
