Auto Electrical Repairs

Auto Electrical Repairs

Specialty Automotive Service & Repair started out as an auto electrical shop, which means we're extremely knowledgeable and skilled when it comes to auto electrical repairs. Wiring, re-wiring, shorts, draws, and burn jobs are second nature to us, and other auto repair shops in the Bend area even send their customers' electrical conundrums to us to untangle and set right. Our mechanics are simply experts at pinpointing poor or inadequate electrical connections that can affect vehicle operability and drivability.




You must be able to rely on your car's braking system to give you maximum stopping power when you need it, so if you are experiencing any symptoms of a brake problem, such as squealing, grinding, or slow braking response time, it's time for a brake inspection. If you haven't had your brakes serviced in some time, it's also a good idea to give us a call and have an inspection or repair performed. Our helpful staff is experienced and professionally trained, and we use only high quality parts that meet or exceed OEM standards.


Front End

Front End

Modern vehicles have increasingly more precise and complex front end components than in the past, which means steering system parts become more and more critical for your car's overall performance. If you're experiencing a shaky, rough ride, your shocks and/or struts could be the problem, or you may need other front end work. Our team of mechanics can handle any repairs involving your front end components, suspension system, and shocks and struts, and all front end service is complemented with a front end alignment.


Fluid Maintenance

Fluid Maintenance

Consistently changing your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles is key to a healthy car, but there are other fluids that need attention every now and then, including coolant fluid, power steering fluid, brake fluid, and transmission fluid. Cars rely on coolant to keep the engine from overheating, power steering fluid is necessary for your steering system to work properly, a transmission fluid flush helps avoid expensive transmission problems, and your braking system can build up sludge over time. At Specialty Automotive Service & Repair, we check the level and quality of all your fluids to see how you are doing and whether it's time for a flush.
