In-Depth Diagnostic Testing For Cars & Trucks

If your check engine light is on, or if your car is making strange noises, then there’s no better place to bring it than Ernie’s Garage When you bring your car to us for testing, we’ll scan your on-board computer for diagnostic trouble codes (DTC). The good news is that we won’t just send you on your way with the codes and a gift basket. As soon as we pinpoint which areas require attention, we’ll explain what needs to be done–what the work entails and how much it will cost–to get you back on the road safely again.

Brake System Repair & Replacement

Do you hear grinding noises when you hit the brakes? Are they squishy or squeaky? If so, then you should have us inspect them immediately. Whether you need brake pads, shoes, rotors, drums, calipers, or hoses, we’ve got you covered. Not sure what you need? Then just stop in for a visit. You’ll find us conveniently located just 10 minutes away from the West Haven Green. We’ll inspect your car’s braking system thoroughly. One of the great benefits of this analysis is that we may find that there’s less work to be done. We could determine that the caliper merely needs to be reconditioned, for example.

Steering & Suspension Repair

Not every West Haven road is paved to perfection. With a fair collection of gravel surfaces and potholes, it’s important to ensure that your shocks and struts are working properly. Struts and shocks should be replaced every 50,000 miles. What happens when your struts and shocks are worn? They can cause your car to wobble uncontrollably. Like oil changes, the 50,000 mile rule isn’t set in stone. It all depends on your driving habits. Read on to learn about some key warning signs.

It’s Time To Replace Your Shocks & Struts If…

  • When you brake, the front end of your car dives
  • When accelerate, the rear end of your car buckles
  • When you turn, your car bounces

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

Exhaust & Muffler Repair

If your car is making loud noises, then there could be something wrong with your exhaust system. We’ll determine this by checking the undercarriage for cracks or breaks, and we’ll pop the hood to inspect the catalytic converter.
