oldtonewWhether your car just rolled off the assembly line or it has been around the block many times, the expertly trained technicians at Lakewood Automotive can keep it running as good as new.

Even new cars need regular maintenance to keep working well. Here at Lakewood Automotive, we perform everything from oil changes to wheel alignments to make sure your car is functioning the way it’s supposed to.

If your car is a little older, regular maintenance is even more important. Lakewood Automotive has you covered here as well. With services ranging from engine to transmission repair, we can help you extend the life of the automobile you depend on.

While we take pride in what we can do for cars here, we also take a great deal of pride in the way we treat our customers. For example, we offer a free shuttle service. If your car needs to spend a great deal of time in our care, there is no need for you to take time out of your life to stay with it. We can drop you off while your car is being fixed, and come pick you up when it’s ready to go home. We go the extra mile to take care of you and your car.

Automotive Repair

When your car is damaged in an accident, you want it repaired quickly and properly. Lakewood Automotive is that place. Our skilled, certified technicians can fix any car, foreign or domestic, new or old.

We also understand the stress, aggravation and endless paperwork that accompany any accident, especially when it comes to insurance. We not only work with you, but we also work with your insurance company to achieve the best outcome possible.

If your car stops working correctly and you aren’t sure why, take it to us. Our diagnostic abilities are second to none. We take the time to get to the root of the problem, ensuring it’s fixed right.

Our Car Mechanics Fix Your Car Right

Your car is one of your most valuable assets. You want to bring it to someone you can trust, who knows what they are doing and can fix it right the first time. That’s why here, at Lakewood Automotive, we employ mechanics that are ASE certified.

What does that mean? While many may tinker with cars, only mechanics that have successfully passed the testing at the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) receive this certification. You can trust the knowledge and expertise of any mechanic who’s achieved this milestone. Bringing your car to someone who is certified saves you time and money, and also gives you peace of mind that your car was fixed correctly.

Transmission Service

When something is wrong with your transmission, there are many places for you take it for repairs. Here’s why you want to take it to Lakewood Automotive: We’ve been fixing them right for nearly 60 years.

Whether you need a transmission rebuild, repair, differential gear service, drive-shaft repair, transfer case repair, or any other service, you can rest assured that, at Lakewood, we have seen and done it all.

We work on both standard and automatic transmissions, and can advise you on whether you need to repair, rebuild or get a simpler service. This is advice you can trust; we aren’t looking for one-time customers, we’d like people who want to stick with us for the next 60 years.

Air Conditioning

Who wants to spend one minute sitting in a hot, sticky car? This is why your air conditioner is so important, and why you should bring your car and its malfunctioning air conditioner to Lakewood Automotive.

A lot can go wrong with an air conditioner; hoses crack, seals wear, fittings loosen and much more. Here at Lakewood Automotive, we run a thorough test of the entire air conditioning system in all its intricacies to ascertain where the problem lies. Then we fix it, before a little problem becomes a bigger one. Who wants to spend a hot Texas day in a sticky car? No one, and no one should have to, if they bring their car here to Lakewood.


Does your car pull to the side while moving? It might be time for an alignment. While the term doesn’t sound serious, it is one of the most important maintenance services for your car. Driving an improperly aligned car can prematurely ruin your tires and hamper your driving.

Here at Lakewood Automotive, when we do alignments, we:

  • Check suspension and steering, and the condition of the tires;
  • Get your car up on an alignment rack and mount and compensate sensors;
  • Adjust angles of the caster, camber and toe to the manufacturers specs;
  • Test the car.

We also show you what we did with before and after printouts, however, you’ll notice the difference the minute you hit the road.

Alternator Repairs

You may not know exactly what your alternator does, but trust us, your car can’t run without it.

Basically, the alternator takes the charge from your battery and uses it to convert your gasoline to energy, thus running your motor. When your alternator malfunctions, your car doesn’t work. It can be a common problem, and here at Lakewood Automotive, we are experts at fixing it.

Whether your car is old enough to be considered a classic or one of those fancy new hybrids, we can make sure that your alternator and your battery are in top shape to keep you and your car running smoothly.

Brake Inspections and Repairs

Your safety should be of the utmost importance every time you get behind the wheel. That is why annual brake inspections are absolutely necessary. Our technicians know every aspect of every brake system, from the brake pedal to the anti-lock sensors, to the hydraulic brake fluid. Good brakes can be all that stands between a driver and a horrific accident. So be prepared, and be sure to check your brakes right away if:

  • They are too low, soft or hard;
  • The brake warning light stays on;
  • They squeal or grind.

Any time you experience these or any other problems, come in for a check. We will examine the system, explain what’s required, what’s optional and provide you with an estimate.

Engine Service and Repair

Today’s engines are complex electrical systems. When something goes wrong: rough running, low fuel economy, warning lights, finding the problem can be quite complex. That’s why the technicians at Lakewood Automotive are experts at diagnosing and fixing all these problems, and much more.

Besides their experience and skills, our technicians are equipped with the latest diagnostic computer technology, allowing them to pinpoint the cause of your problems. We provide estimates on any repairs up front, and competitive rates on all the parts we use. Don’t jeopardize your most valuable asset by taking it to just anyone for this sort of repair. Take it to qualified, certified experts who can have you and your car up and running in no time.

Oil Changes

Changing your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles is as vital to your vehicle as putting gasoline in it. Here at Lakewood Automotive, we follow manufacturer recommendations precisely when it comes to changing your oil and your oil filter to keep your car in top shape.

Not only will we use the correct viscosity of oil, but we will also use this time to perform a visual check of all your filters and fluids, as well as your tire pressure. It’s always better to find and stop a problem before it occurs, after all. This type of preventive maintenance will save you time and money.

Radiator Service and Repair

Your car has many moving parts under the hood, and your radiator keeps them from overheating. It pumps cooling air and liquid around each system, keeping everything working as it should. When your radiator goes out, expect smoke and an awful burning smell from your car.

If your radiator leaks or fails to function properly, it needs immediate fixing. If the radiator isn’t fixed properly, then you can expect extensive—and expensive—damage under the hood. If you take your car to Lakewood Automotive, we will test, flush and refill your system to ensure that it runs smoothly and keeps your car working properly.

Suspension Work

Many car owners can drive their vehicles for months without realizing they need to have their suspension checked and calibrated. Suspension is responsible for the friction between the tires and the road, the steering of the car and the overall comfort of passengers. Before any long trip, it’s worth the time to get your suspension checked. This will ensure your car is in great shape for that long drive.

Here at Lakewood Automotive, we do a complete and thorough check of your car and its suspension and steering systems. We analyze it, explain the results and present a plan to you to return your car to peak performance.

Engine Tune-Ups

Engines are wonderful, miraculous things. However, even the best engine will eventually suffer the ravages of time just through normal wear and tear. This results in both a loss of performance and fuel economy. You can prevent this and extend the life of your car for as long as possible with regular engine tune-ups.

Clogged fuel injectors, dirty filters and corroded spark plugs can all hurt your engine. During a tune-up, these features and more are checked and replaced if need be in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines. This will maximize the efficiency of your engine, and thus your car, keeping it running smoothly for many, many years to come.
