General Car Repair Services

Each ASE-certified automotive technician at Chandler & Sons Automotive is committed to finding the problem with your vehicle and fixing it in a timely manner. Our services start with a thorough diagnosis so we can give you a clear picture of how long the repairs are likely to take and how much we expect it to cost.

Electrical Diagnosis

Pinpointing the problem is the first step in the repair process. While many issues we see in our shop are mechanical, it’s possible that the root cause is in the car’s electrical system. By hooking your vehicle up to our diagnostic equipment, we can spot the component that is causing the trouble, including:

  • Power steering
  • Windows
  • Tire pressure monitoring system
  • Windshield wipers
  • Interior or exterior lights

Engine and Transmission Repair

If you hear a clunking or banging sound when you drive, your engine probably needs repair. The key to avoiding further damage is to get it to a local auto repair shop as soon as you notice something is off. We can replace cylinders and spark plugs and make sure all your belts are intact and working properly.

A catch or delay when you accelerate or shift gears is a sign of transmission trouble, and it’s not something you want to ignore. An experienced auto mechanic at Chandler & Sons Automotive can find the problem and propose a cost-effective solution.

Tire Services

Tires don’t last forever, and making sure they have sufficient tread is crucial for keeping you safe on the road. We offer a wide selection of both new and used tires to ensure that you have the size and style you want at a price you can afford.

Good tires prevent excessive skidding, and working brakes help you stop in time to avoid accidents. If you notice a delay or hear a squealing sound when you brake, our automotive technicians can diagnose the issue. Whether you need brake pad replacement, brake line repair or other services to ensure your brakes are working, we can help.

Maintenance Tips and Inspections

As a car owner, you are your vehicle’s first line of defense against accidents caused by poor maintenance. Our car maintenance tips help you keep it running smoothly with sensible driving advice and a list of key elements that need to be checked on a regular basis:

  • Fluid levels
  • Windshield wiper blades
  • Tire tread and air pressure
  • Fuel, oil and air filters
  • Belts

Our auto repair shop also conducts Virginia state inspections. Chandler & Sons Automotive is a member of Technet, and we are committed to doing our part to help reduce vehicle emissions. Get your car checked to ensure that you are in compliance with state regulations.
