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.

    Wonderful experience here. I'm currently making this post on A Saturday. I originally called on a Monday for a 3 hour job and was told that the next appointment wasn't until the next week on Tuesday. But due to hard work I was able to get in two days later on Thursday to get my car back on the road. I would've still been waiting 3 more days to make money so that's awesome. And the mechanic was very informative on future work I need to get done and with his advice and helping my gear shift which was not included in the job I was able to drive my car back 380 miles home with a near blown transmission. Five star for sure.

    Didn't have the product or service I needed fix a flat or a used tire or plug kit. They did have reasonably priced new tires and friendly staff. Only 50$ to put a new set of tires and rims on that I had previously purchased. They also offered me a bottle of water as I fumbled thru my pockets for change in front of the soda machine. I hadn't even purchased anything. Good people, friendly staff. Hard to find this day and age especially confusing I walked in with a huge backpack overstuffed and dirty as can be from jacking up a vehicle in the dirt and looking rough.

    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.
