Comprehensive Diagnostic Testing For Cars & Trucks

Is your check engine light on? Is your car making odd noises? Don’t worry–we’re here to help! When you bring your car in for testing, we’ll use state of the art equipment to scan your on-board computer for diagnostic trouble codes (DTC). But we won’t stop there. Once we’ve identified which areas need work, we’ll make sure you understand what needs to be done in order to clear the codes for good, and to get your vehicle working properly again.

Brake System Repair & Replacement

If you’ve been hearing grinding noises when you step on the brakes, then you should have them inspected as soon as possible. At Ernie’s Garage, we replace brake pads, shoes, rotors, drums, calipers, and hoses. If you’re not sure what you need, then don’t sweat it. Just stop in for a visit. We’re located less than 20 minutes from Two Roads Brewing Company. Our experienced technicians will conduct a full inspection of your car’s braking system. We may even find that certain components, like the caliper, only need to be reconditioned.

Steering & Suspension Repair

We know that Stratford has its fair share of bumpy and windy roads. That’s why it’s important for your struts and shocks to be in good working condition. Struts and shocks should be replaced every 50,000 miles. Worn shocks and struts can cause your car to sway or hydroplane uncontrollably. Wondering if there are any warning signs you should look out for? Read on…

Signs That It’s Time To Replace Your Shocks & Struts

  • Your car’s front end dives when you brake
  • Your car’s rear end buckles when you accelerate
  • Your car sways or bounces unintentionally when you turn

In addition to shocks and struts, we’ll also assess your coil springs, chassis parts, wheel alignment, wheel bearings, differential, and power steering.

Exhaust & Muffler Repair

If your car is making loud noises (not the cool race car kind of noises), then you should have your exhaust system thoroughly inspected. We’ll check the undercarriage for cracks or breaks, and we’ll review the condition of your catalytic converter under the hood.

Routine Maintenance

Oil changes, batteries, belts, hoses, filters, tire rotations and alignments–we do it all! Everyone knows how important regular car maintenance is. That said, if you’ve skipped an oil change or two, we won’t judge you. We know stuff happens sometimes. Stop in today!
