The technicians at J & K Automotive Inc 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.
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 J & K Automotive Inc.
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 J & K Automotive Inc 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 J & K Automotive Inc, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
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 J & K Automotive Inc 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 J & K Automotive Inc 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 407-880-3530 or visit J & K Automotive Inc 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 J & K Automotive Inc in Apopka, FL 32703 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 J & K Automotive Inc for all your transmission repairs.
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 J & K Automotive Inc today.
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. J & K Automotive Inc can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
Will never take my car anywhere else!! They are amazing and take great care of you!
I love you guys!!!! I refuse to take my car ANYWHERE else. I also love how genuine, honest, sympathetic, caring, and absolutely reasonable on pricing this company is. A special thanks goes out to Steve-He is super awesome!
The folks at J & K just saved me over $250 on a repair I thought I needed, and they probably could have gotten away with it and I'd have never been the wiser. Fortunately, they were honest and only fixed what needed to be fixed, despite me thinking it was something else. Not surprised they were pretty slammed by the time I got there at 9 am. Honest and dependable service...would definitely recommend them to friends!
Good place for a good price... Been here numerous times without any complaints... Recently had an issue with an oil leak... They told me the price and how it wouldn't be worth it with such an old car with high miles... Could have taken my money but they decided to help me instead.
The most honest, knowledgeable mechanics out there. We have been bringing our 1992 truck here for years and will continue to do so.
My wife and I have had our cars serviced and repaired at J & K for nearly 20 years. I have never had to bring a car back after it had been repaired. On a number of occasions they made ajustments to correct a minor problem and did not charge us for it. When we had an emergency they were able to squeeze us in to help us. I have unconditionally recommended J & K over the years.
I was recommended here by a friend who loves this repair shop and seriously, if you're in the area and not taking your car here for repairs my only question is WHY? These guy are polite, courteous and really take the time to show you whats going on. I've had to take my car in a few times, and if it was a petty thing they didn't even charge me to look at it or fix it. The more major issues I've had they were able to squeeze me in and did an excellent job at a really fair price! I've already told everyone I know about them, so now, I'm sharing with Yelp. Call them, try them once. You'll be glad you did!
J&K are always helpful, fair, and reliable. I have been taking my cars here for almost ten years, and they have always been honest and quick when it comes to explaining and solving problems.
Great shop! Great people! Honest mechanics that do honest work. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Brought them a quote from pep boys, they went over the vehicle again and found out that I didn't need HALF of what they said I did. Saved me 400 dollars.
I went to J and K Auto Repair e light on my car Steve told me it is my alternator so I came back home and called him back and he said come back at 2 and we'll put on a brand new alternator thank God for J&K. I've gone to them for years for help with my car.. I always leave happy, and with a happy car.
J & K is the best shop around. Good, honest, family owned business and all the guys there take good care of you. If I could give ten stars I would. Support your local business Apopka!!!
Will never take my car anywhere else!! They are amazing and take great care of you!
