Miscellaneous Auto Services

For whatever else may pose a threat to your vehicle's road performance, our knowledgeable auto specialists provide a number of other miscellaneous auto services. And because our work is guaranteed, you can rest assured that you're receiving the best workmanship possible. Let us know how we can help you! Contact us at 818-982-5589 to set up an appointment for additional quality auto services.

Our miscellaneous auto services include:

Most Extended Warranties Accepted
An extended warranty (also known as a service contract) can provide peace of mind to most car buyers. The warranty (or service contract) kicks in after the usual manufacturer warranty has expired. An extended warranty covers major breakdowns and evens out the cost of repairs. Unfortunately, not all auto repair shops accept extended warranties. At Ed's Automotive Center in N. Hollywood, CA 91605, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.

Fleet Maintenance and Repair
As a fleet owner, you have to do all it takes to keep the fleet on the road. When any vehicle is out of service, both revenue and your reputation as a reliable business are at risk. To make sure your fleet of trucks/vehicles is always on the road, partner with a professional auto shop. At Ed's Automotive Center, we can manage your fleet repairs and maintenance. We make sure servicing is up to date and up to standards. We handle all aspects of fleet repairs and maintenance.

Performance Modifications
Do you have a passion for speed and performance? Performance modifications on your car let you attain high levels of speed and performance. This type of modification involves changing or completely replacing some of your vehicle's parts with high performance ones to boost its performance and speed. Mechanics at Ed's Automotive Center have a passion for performance too. The mechanics will make all the necessary performance modifications to ensure you get the best performance from your drive. For all your performance modification needs, contact us at 818-982-5589 or visit Ed's Automotive Center today.

Trailer Hitches, Wiring and Tires
Although a trailer does not have an engine of its own, it does require some maintenance. The trailer needs wires to move current to the brake lights and other lights at the back. Ed's Automotive Center has qualified and experienced electricians who will handle your trailer maintenance. Call us at 818-982-5589 to schedule an appointment.

On-Site Welding
Welding is the fabrication and sculptural process that joins metal parts. At Ed's Automotive Center, we offer various welding services. Simply give us a call at 818-982-5589 or visit our shop in N. Hollywood, CA.

Wheel Bearings
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. Ed's Automotive Center can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.

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 Ed's Automotive Center 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 Ed's Automotive Center 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 818-982-5589 or visit Ed's Automotive Center 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 Ed's Automotive Center in N. Hollywood, CA 91605 today.

Fuel Efficiency
The experts at Ed's Automotive Center can inspect your vehicle and perform services that can help it operate at peak performance and help improve fuel efficiency and overall fuel economy. These inspections and services may include items such as:

  • Change engine oil, using the recommended grade of motor oil

  • Inspect and, if necessary, replace a clogged fuel filter
  • Adjust tire pressure to manufacturer-recommended specs
  • Inspect/clean the intake system
  • Inspect/replace emissions components and/or a faulty oxygen sensor

  • Align front suspension
  • Clean or replace dirty or malfunctioning fuel injectors
  • Inspect/replace spark plugs and spark plug wires
  • Check exhaust for clogged catalytic converter
  • Examine the exhaust gas recirculation system

Pre-Purchase Inspections
Are you planning to buy a new car? Don't take chances. Be confident about the car you are buying. Have pre-purchase inspections performed on the vehicle. Pre-purchase inspections involve examining the car's condition to ensure it is worth buying. At Ed's Automotive Center, we have pre-purchase inspection experts - mechanics who will scrutinize any car, make, and model and allow you to make an informed decision. Pre-purchase inspections will definitely give you peace of mind when you buy your next used car.

Pre-Trip Inspection
A pre-trip check up can make the difference between a safe trip and one that ends in a tragedy. The inspection aims at looking for possible defects and potential mechanical problems that could cause disaster. Before embarking on a trip you should make sure your car is fully inspected for safety. You can rely on the experts at Ed's Automotive Center. We have pre-trip inspection experts who are able to conduct safety inspections on any car, make, and model. Our experts are dedicated to ensuring you have a safe trip. Simply drop by or give us a call at 818-982-5589.

Testimonials

  • Two of the hardest things to find when you move to a new place: a barber & a mechanic. I finally found this place after months of looking and man am I happy I did. The guys here are friendly and professional with comparable prices to any other mechanic or jiffy lube or whatever. Do be warned that there is a fee to diagnose what's wrong with the car - a thing that was foreign to me and a little jarring at the beginning. Having said that, I highly recommend this place.
    -Alex K.

  • Great place, great people! Dropped in, changed oil and fixed tire pressure in a jiffy at great rate. Highly recommended!
    -William L.

  • Where I go to change my engine oil I started coming hear with a invitation from a friend that works there,and I pretty much know what to expect. Engine lights are frustrating so when it came on I came in. Diagnostic check was made and the shop made repairs along with and oil and filter change( it just happened I was ready for that). They are committed to inspections to insure the vehicle is safe ! so I do maintenance along with oil changes to ensure the vitality of my vehicle twice a year and my vehicle has not let me down. parts do wear out and its better to sit in a shop and maintain your vehicle apposed to being stranded on the side of the road. Take care
    -James R.

  • I recently visited Ed's Automotive Center to have some repairs done on my 2001 Tacoma. The experience and service was nothing short of 5 stars! The friendly and knowledgeable staff answered all of my questions and even pointed out something about a recent repair I had done at another shop. The price for my repair was far lower than I had been quoted at another shop. Needless to say, I was very happy with everything during my recent appointment. If you need any automotive repairs, diagnosis, consultation, reach out to Ed and his friendly staff!!

  • From my experience bringing my girlfriend's 2009 Ford Fusion as well as my 2013 Dodge Dart to Ed's, they are honest, priced fairly, timely and friendly. I took my girlfriend's car to another shop first and they tried to tell her and me that her belts were frayed. They were not frayed. They also had her sign a sheet to do the inspection and she didn't read it all the way and it included a $75 oil change, even though the oil was changed on her car not more than a thousand miles previously. We left the other shop, out $75 but took it over to Ed's. They are ASE certified (the other shop wasn't) and they quickly found the source of the problem (and it was not frayed belts). We left the car there and I believe it was done by the end of the day. I also brought my Dart in to get part of the front air dam/close-out panel installed. They had quoted me $30 a few weeks prior and when I finally brought it in, it turned out to require more work than we had thought it would but they still only charged me $30. As long as Ed's Automotive Center is around, we'll be loyal customers.

  • I bought a 2007 Honda CRV with a salvaged title. My insurance company needs a form completed by a mechanic. I stopped by my favorite auto body shop, LA Street Customs, the owner Julian said go see Ed's Automotive. I am happy I did. They said come at 8:30 AM and took me in right away. They did everything I expected and more. I got an excellent inspection at an excellent price. They also removed an aftermarket engine kill system that was a problem FOR FREE. Thank you to Ed's for excellent service, great prices and fast turnaround.

  • My car wouldn't stay running so made a bad choice to have my car towed to Mt. View auto on laurel canyon. Big mistake. After a new set of fuel injectors and a bill of $1.400 it ran worst than ever. My car stopped running a second time again towed it back to Mt. View auto. Told my car was high mileage and couldn't run any better. Took it to Ed's auto repair like I had done a year ago for smog test and other repair. Told Ed my issues. From Mt.View wanting me to let them do an engine rebuild for $6.000 and that I did not agree with their conclusion. Ed agreed and within a week figured out the issue got the part and my car is running great again. My stupidly of not going out of my way and getting it to Ed's cost me a lot of wasted time and money, and aggravating salespeople trying to convince me to spend more money on something there mechanics couldn't figure out. A good honest mechanic is hard to find here is a terrific one, go to Ed's Automotive Center to have your car repaired honestly.
    -Steve G.

  • This garage deserves the ratings it gets - even though my car was beyond repair, "Ed" was honest and helpful. He went above and beyond, explaining and showing me the damage, what it meant, and how the repairs would be done if requested. Additionally, he gave me recommendations about how to proceed with my car, options for replacement, and assured me he would check over any used car I was considering buying. This is a professional, comfortable, knowledgeable business. I'm far from my home and family, and I feel very fortunate coming across such a helpful shop in my time of need.

  • I was very pleased with the service I received at Ed's. I will definitely return to Ed's when my car needs service.
    -Mary - Sherman Oaks, CA

  • I had a very positive experience with Ed and his team. They were extremely professional; kept me constantly up to date on my car, its issues, and what they were doing to fix it; asked frequently about things they would have to do that would cost me money; and came in under the price they quoted me. Their professionalism and workmanship was exceptional!
    -Patrick P.

  • That poor problem child of a Ranger wouldn't stay on the road without your magical intervention. This time was a little more conventional to figure out. Thanks again for keeping it running.
    -Richard S.

  • I'm so relieved to have brought my new (to me) Scion in. I feel such calm knowing Danny went over it thoroughly and told me the things that were wrong with it (minimal-yeah!). This is the third car I've had at Ed's, they are trustworthy, genuinely communicative and always helpful!
    -Ross K.

  • TAKE YOUR CAR HERE! This place is amazing! Very helpful, friendly, great services and very good prices! From now on this is my favorite place! My car likes Ed's Automotive Center & Auto Repair!
    -Raciu D.

  • If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Amazing customer service. I came in with an 86 toyota that had a do it yourself previous owner and they where able to diagnose and fix the problem in no time at all. The cost of the repairs was also extremely fair. Hands down the best mechanics I have found in a very long time. Thank you Dan and Ed for a great experience.
