Bore Engine Block
A bore is the diameter measurement of the cylinders in an engine. When the engine cylinder walls are damaged, the holes must be re-drilled to make them bigger for proper performance. This is referred to as a bored engine. Boring an engine is an economical alternative to buying a new one. By boring the engine block, the engine is reverted to its good running condition. You will now have fewer repair bills, better gas mileage, and overall better performance. To have your engine bored by engine experts, visit or call 865-272-3379 Peoples Choice Auto Repair today. Our machine shop has the necessary machinery and staff to bore your car's engine block.

Brake Drum / Rotor Resurfacing
A brake drum/rotor is not meant to last forever. They wear down a little every time you step on the brake pedal. Most modern cars come with thinner rotors to save on weight. Due to their slimness, the rotors wear out faster. For this reason, it is advisable to have the rotors and brake drums resurfaced every time you are replacing the brake pads. Resurfacing is an economical alternative to replacing the rotors/drums with new ones. If your brake rotors/drums have sufficient metal remaining with no hard spots, cracks, severe grooving, or rusting, then resurfacing is a great option. For expert resurfacing services, call 865-272-3379 or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today.

Check for Cracked Heads
A cracked head is a serious engine problem that can lead to your car breaking down. Even if the car engine won't fail, it will definitely suffer from poor performance. The following are some symptoms of a cracked engine head: oil leaks, low engine compression (engine combustion pressure escapes), coolant leaks (leading to engine overheating), engine head smoke, and engine missing. At Peoples Choice Auto Repair, we will have a knowledgeable service professional check for cracked heads on your car's engine.

Fluid Recycling
Fluids are vital to engine operations. Replacing and disposing of used fluids (oil and other coolants) is both time consuming and costly. By recycling fluids, you will cut your costs and save the environment! Peoples Choice Auto Repair offers a fluid recycling service. For all your fluid recycling needs call or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today. Unlike other recyclers, we offer you personalized reclamation options that meet your specific needs.

Flywheel Turning
A common question among car owners who own a manual shift transmission and work on it themselves is "Who can turn my flywheel?". For all your flywheel turning needs, call 865-272-3379 or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today.

Parts Cleaning Operation
Parts cleaning is essential to most machine works. For all your parts cleaning needs, call or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair in Oak Ridge, TN 37830 today. We have a machine shop that will handle this.

Press U Joints
A clunking or clicking sound from underneath your car may indicate a worn out universal joint (U joint). A worn U joint can be replaced easily by use of a press machine. First press one side, remove the cap and then press the other side in the same fashion. Although easy, most auto shops do not press U joints due to lack of the necessary machinery and expertise. At Peoples Choice Auto Repair's machine shop, we have the necessary press machines and qualified staff to press your car's U joints.

Press Wheel Bearings
At Peoples Choice Auto Repair's machine shop, we will handle all your wheel bearing needs with our high-tech press machines. Call us at 865-272-3379 or visit us in Oak Ridge, TN 37830 today.

Shave Heads
Head shaving, also known as milling is the process of ensuring that the head is flat and true when changing a head gasket. Milling the heads ensures that you get a perfect seal. When changing head gaskets, let the machine shop inspect the head and tell you if it needs milling. At Peoples Choice Auto Repair, we will inspect your heads, determine whether they need milling, and shave them. Call us today or visit our machine shop in Oak Ridge, TN 37830.

Used Oil Drop-Off Location
Recycling used oil from your car is simple and good for the environment. To have your used oil recycled, you need to take it to a used oil drop-off location like Peoples Choice Auto Repair. We collect used oil for recycling as a service to our customers and the environment. Give us a call today 865-272-3379.

Valve Jobs
A valve job is an operation performed on any 4-stroke engine. The main purpose of this job is to resurface the mating surfaces of the poppet valves and their respective valve seats. Valve jobs usually only occur in high-performance vehicles, but sometimes passenger cars need valve jobs for these reasons: overheating, material failure, high mileage, excessive RPM, and foreign object damage. Call 865-272-3379 or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair for all your valve job needs.

    Thousands of miles from home the dreaded check engine light came on. We took our Honda to them. They got us right in and identified the problem, got it repaired and we were on our way. About 8 miles down the road the check engine light came back on. Back we went. Seems that Hondas are particular beasts and don't work with after market parts. They stood behind their work, replaced the parts with OEM parts at no cost. Good honest hard working folks. If your car breaks down around Oak Ridge, take it to People's Choice.

    Blazer 2004, bought new, only owner. My car had all kinds of little problems here & there. Took it in to have it "gone over". Left it a week while on vac. They went through everything. Got it back and couldn't be happier. Runs awsome, like new. Jerry Hunter was my mechanic, great guy! Staff was also great & professional. Cost me a bit, but well worth not having to l?k for a new car with a new car payment. ???

    Had my breaks, rotors and a fuel pump sensor replaced. The work took a little longer then planed but I had it back the next day. However, I still had issues. When I called with my concerns I was in Knoxville already, having drove straight there after getting my car. Jessica listened to my concerns, made arrangements immediately to have it towed and within a few hours they had resolved the issue. I trust the mechanics there, and simple mistakes like tightening the drums too tight happens. But for me, someone who is not mechanically inclined and smells burning rubber it is an anxiety moment. But the staff handled it well, the tow company was professional and fast. I have no problems with bringing my car back again or referring other to them.

    Highly recommend People's Choice for your car repairs. Very knowledgeable staff. Everything was explained in detail. My car was a nightmare for them. One problem led to another. I was kept up to date with everything that was going on with the repairs. They did a lot of work from timing assembly replacement to engine replacement, starter replacement and now sway bar link. My car is great. I'm enjoying driving it again. Can't say enough about People's Choice great staff and the crucial part each one plays in their team. Thanks so much! I will be doing business with them again. They have also worked on both of my daughter's cars with great results. I will be recommending them to anyone that has car issues.

    Peoples Choice saved the day. After waiting half the day for another shop to fix the brakes on my Mother-in-law's car, we found out they hadn't even touched it yet, even though we had an appointment. We called People Choice, explained the situation, and and they assured us they had the parts in stock and could fit us in immediately. They had her back on the road in no time.
