  • Vehicle tips

    • According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
    • The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
    • Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
    • Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
    • Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
    • A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
    • Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
    • Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
    • Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
    • Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
    • Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
    • Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
    • Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
    • Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
    • Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
    • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
    • Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
    • Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
    • Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
    • Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.

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

  • 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.
