Auto Electrical Repair

Your car’s electrical system runs your battery, starter, and alternator. These are all vital functions, and without them, your car won’t start! If you see any signs that your car isn’t starting or it’s struggling to start, bring your car into Uncle Al’s for an electrical system inspection!

Car Battery Replacement

Starter Replacement

Typically, starters go bad because of age and mileage. Internal corrosion, rust,  broken gears, and melted terminals can all contribute to a bad starter. Because so many factors can be involved, it’s best to bring your car to Uncle Al’s–we specialize in starter replacements!

Belt and Hose Replacement

There are multiple hoses that run through the engine, and a damaged hose can cause a lot of issues. Hoses are required for radiators, air conditioning, and other components. You may have leaks or see steam coming from under the hood. Bring your car into Uncle Al’s to have the hoses checked.

Fan Belt Replacement

Fan and serpentine belts are responsible for assisting the water pump, power steering, alternator, and air conditioning units. You may have a broken belt if your engine is overheating, if check engine lights come on, or if you see steam. Contact Uncle Al’s, and bring your car in for an inspection!

Timing Belt Replacement

Timing belts are responsible for the seamless integration of all of your engine’s parts. We install timing belts and chains on all makes and models, including foreign and domestic. Contact us today, and bring your car into Uncle Al’s for a timing belt inspection, repair, or installation!

Water Pump Replacement

Your vehicle’s water pump keeps your engine at the appropriate temperature, preventing it from overheating by dispersing coolant or antifreeze through the engine. Without a water pump, your car would not be able to function, and lack of coolant can cause serious damage.

Axle Repair

If you notice noise, clunking, or unusual vibrating coming from your car, it could be a sign that your axle needs to be replaced or serviced. If you’re suspicious you might need your axle repaired please contact us at Uncle Al’s Automotive Services today, so we can schedule a thorough inspection!

Brake Repair

Everyone knows how important functioning brakes are. There are a few signs your brakes need to be looked at, including squealing, grabbing, and grinding. Bring your car in for a complimentary brake inspection! We can provide you with a no-obligation quote, and make sure your vehicle is safe to drive. 

CV Joint & CV Boot Replacement

All vehicles need their CV joints replaced. You may notice vibrating or strange noises when you accelerate. While there can be a number of issues that cause the same signs, it may be the CV joint. Come on in for an inspection!

Shocks and Struts Replacement

Shocks and struts will typically need to be replaced between 50,000 and 80,000 miles. Having regular inspections for your struts will help your car last longer and handle better. If your car’s handling feels strange, come into Uncle Al’s!

Auto Diagnostics Services and Auto Tune Ups in Gladstone OR

Factory Scheduled Maintenance

Every manufacturer has their own specific schedule for engine maintenance, and you can typically find this in your vehicle’s manual. Scheduled maintenance includes everything from oil changes to spark plug replacements. 

Pre Purchase Inspections

Buying a new car can involve a lot of details, but the most important one is the condition of the car itself! Uncle Al’s offer comprehensive pre-purchase inspections so you can have complete confidence in your new vehicle. 

Regular Oil Changes

Your engine needs oil to stay lubricated. Without oil, your engine can seize and total your car. When oil circulates through the engine, it can pick up dirt, debris, and other particles that slowly corrupt the oil over time. 

Auto Diagnostic Services

Check engine lights can be scary, but they can also have a multitude of explanations. A check engine light needs to be diagnosed with proper equipment. Come into Uncle Al’s, where we’ll properly diagnose your check engine light!
