QUICK LUBE SERVICES

QUICK LUBE SERVICES, Oak Ridge, TN

Peoples Choice Auto Repair is dedicated to providing customers with quality services. From the moment you enter our Quick Lube service center, we strive to deliver exceptional auto maintenance services. Our goal is to make sure our customers are completely satisfied with their Quick Lube experience. Here is a brief list of services Peoples Choice Auto Repair can provide:

Belts
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Peoples Choice Auto Repair for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today. The mechanics at Peoples Choice Auto Repair will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

Brake System Flush
Brake fluid is hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture). The absorbed moisture lowers the fluid's boiling point. It also corrodes the lines and cylinders. With the lowered boiling point, the brake fluid could boil during braking which makes you lose braking ability. Although this is an extreme scenario, it does happen in heavy braking. To reduce the effects of the absorbed moisture, auto manufacturers recommend that you have a brake flush done periodically. A brake system flush involves the replacement of used and contaminated fluid with fresh fluid. With Peoples Choice Auto Repair's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 865-272-3379 or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today.

Coolant System Flush
A car's air conditioning system contains a coolant which transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the a/c coolant becomes old and dirty. The old coolant will negatively impact the system's performance. To make sure the system is working effectively, consider having a regular coolant system flush. A coolant flush is basic maintenance for your car's cooling system. Call 865-272-3379 or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair in Oak Ridge, TN 37830 for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. Ensure maximum performance from your vehicle's heating and cooling systems today.

Differential Flush
The differential is a car part that compensates for the difference in travel distance between the inner wheels and outer wheels when the vehicle is turning. Due to the differential's position in most non-four-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles (located at the rear and under the car), it does not get any of the star treatment the engine gets. The one thing that every car owner needs to know is that failure of the differential will mean failure of the car. To save the differential from failure, you need to have differential fluid changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Changing the oil on the differential is as important as changing the car's engine oil. Although checking and changing differential oil is pretty easy, you need to visit an auto shop to get a comprehensive differential flush. For differential flush services, visit or call Peoples Choice Auto Repair in Oak Ridge, TN 37830 today.

Fuel Injection Cleaning
A fuel injector is an electronically controlled valve that supplies the engine with pressurized fuel. When driving, the oxygen sensors tell the engine if it is getting too much air, which signals the fuel injectors to give the engine spurts of pressurized fuel. Since fuel injectors are small pieces of equipment (and the part that squirts the fuel is even smaller), any little piece of dirt can clog it. A clogged fuel injector will hurt your vehicle's performance. To avoid misfires, poor emission rating, poor performance, and rough idle have the car's fuel injectors cleaned regularly. For professional fuel injection cleaning services, call 865-272-3379 or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today.

Headlight and Bulb Replacement
To maintain maximum visibility (and keep you safe), you should always make sure that your vehicle's headlight bulbs are in good working condition. Although replacing faulty headlight bulbs is a simple and quick process (takes very little time), you need to rely on an experienced auto mechanic to handle your headlight and bulb replacement. This way, you will have quality bulbs installed by experts. Remember, it is a critical part of your car's maintenance and your safety. For all your headlight and bulb replacement needs, call or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today.

Hoses
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Peoples Choice Auto Repair for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today. The mechanics at Peoples Choice Auto Repair will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

Motor Oil Basics
Do you know the oil basics? Did you know that even some auto mechanics do not know the oil basics? In order for your car's engine to do its job properly, it is vital to have clean, fresh oil. The oil used in your car has two primary ingredients: base oil and additives. The base oil allows the motor oil to perform its vital function - lubricating the engine's moving parts to protect them against wear and tear caused by friction. The additives provide additional engine protection by helping to prevent the oil from deteriorating under the engine's extreme temperature conditions. At Peoples Choice Auto Repair, we are motor oil experts - we will help you with motor oil basics. Call us at 865-272-3379 or visit our auto repair shop in Oak Ridge, TN 37830 today.

Oil Changes
Did you know that regularly changing the oil in your vehicle is one of the simplest, most effective and inexpensive ways to help protect its engine life? Oil lessens wear, reduces friction, and forms a seal between the pistons, rings, and cylinder walls. The oil also helps cool engine parts and even dampens the shock and noise of moving parts. For all your oil change needs, call 865-272-3379 or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today. We have years of experience helping drivers with oil changes and other auto maintenance needs.

PCV Valve Change
The positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve is a very important part of some cars' emissions control systems. This valve, which is usually plugged into a rubber grommet in the valve cover, is a one-way passage for gases to escape from the engine's crankcase. With time, the PCV valve becomes clogged with sludge from the contaminants in the exhaust gases. If your car has a PCV valve, make sure it is regularly cleaned and (if necessary) replaced. To have your car's PCV valve changed by experts, call or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair in Oak Ridge, TN 37830 today.

Power Steering Flush
Power steering fluid is the hydraulic fluid that transmits the power in a steering wheel. Servicing the power steering involves flushing out the old power steering fluid and adding fresh fluid. A power steering flush will definitely help prolong the life of the power steering components. Failure to have periodic power steering flushes results in important parts like the power steering pump, the seals, power steering rack, and the O-rings wearing out. To have a comprehensive power steering flush, call 865-272-3379 or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today.

Radiator Flush
A radiator is the part of your vehicle that keeps the engine cool and protects it from excessive heating. To be cool, the radiator needs to remain clean - always. With time, sludge, rust and other solid deposits build up inside your car's radiator. These make the cooling system become clogged and less effective. This in effect hurts your vehicle's performance. A regular radiator flush is enough to keep the system in shape. For this reason, make radiator flushing a part of your routine car maintenance schedule. For all your radiator flush needs, call 865-272-3379 or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today.

Transmission Flush
Although most manufacturers recommend a transmission flush every 30,000 miles or every two years, some symptoms may indicate that you need a transmission flush sooner. Some of the symptoms that indicate that your car needs a transmission flush sooner are: transmission grinding or strange noises, problems shifting gears, slipping gears, surging of the car, and delay in vehicle movement. Flushing the used fluid from the transmission washes away tiny particles of dirt, clutch material, and metal shavings. For all your transmission flush needs, call 865-272-3379 or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today - we are transmission experts.

Transmission Flush & Filter
Transmission flush and filter change is a comprehensive transmission maintenance service that involves the replacement of old, degraded transmission fluid and filter with new. The service is meant to prolong the life of your transmission. At Peoples Choice Auto Repair, we offer the most comprehensive transmission flush and filter service. We will exchange your old transmission oil, remove dirt, replace the filter, clean the screen, and replace used pans. Give us a call at 865-272-3379 or visit our auto shop in Oak Ridge, TN 37830.

Transmission Service
Just like replacing your engine oil, transmission service is part of your routine vehicle maintenance. The service involves removing and examining the pan, cleaning or replacing the screen or filter, cleaning the pan, reinstalling the pan (with a new pan gasket), replacing the old oil with new, and adding an additive package. Adding new fluid restores the holding power between the clutches. This service helps improve lubrication and helps maximize the life of the transmission. For all your transmission repair needs, visit or call Peoples Choice Auto Repair in Oak Ridge, TN 37830 today. We offer transmission services, reseal services, and clutch services.

Truck Service
To keep your truck maintained and problem free, call or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today. We are here to keep you and your truck on the road.

We Service Most Trucks and Cars
At Peoples Choice Auto Repair we service most cars and trucks. Call us at 865-272-3379 or visit our auto shop in Oak Ridge, TN 37830. Count on Peoples Choice Auto Repair for all your maintenance needs.

Wiper Blade Replacement

What Our Customers Are Saying

Best mechanics around.

, 05/28/2020

I have a rather unusual vehicle for this area. It was a recent acquisition and has a lot of issues besides what it was brought in for. You guys took it on without complaint or even a shudder. You have an amazing team and some of the best attitudes of anyone I have ever dealt with in public. If anyone ever needs work done, this is the place to take your vehicle. I will NEVER use any other place again.

I have nothing but great things to say about this company and their staff! I needed an oil change, brakes, and rotors. Not only did they pick my vehicle up from my job and bring it back they went above and beyond to save me money. There was a faulty part on my car, instead of replacing it and setting me back $1000, they researched and found the part was on "recall". They then took my vehicle to the dealership where said faulty part was replaced for free!! They didn't stop there though they took the vehicle back to the shop to double check everything was done as it should have been! On top of that they placed me in one of their vehicles so I didn't have to stress over how I would get around. They kept me up to date every day with what was going on. When I tell you the service they provided brought me to tears I mean it literally made me cry! Thank you Chris, Jessica, and the rest of the staff!

Wonderful service for simple and immediate repair. I own a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR, which is fairly low to the ground. Last night it snowed/rained significantly(there was about an inch of ice on the car this morning) and my car's skid plate (big plastic shield under the engine bay) was frozen to the ground. When attempting to reverse out of my parking spot, I inadvertently dislodged the back half of the skid plate, so that the back half of it was dragging on the ground, like a sled, with about 20-30 pounds of ice on it. Since the skid plate was only attached by a few of the front mounts (which are plastic screws), I really didn't want to drive far to get some sort of repair. Other places were either closed at 9 am, or weren't answering their phone, due to the bad weather. Initially, I tried R T Clapp Co, since they were closer, but none of their jacks/lifts would fit under my car. When I called Peoples Choice Auto Repair, they said they'd be able to start when I got there, and told me ahead of time that they may not be able to get parts, should they need it (since the NAPA delivery service may not be possible due to the ice), but that they would definitely be able to fix it so that the skid plate wouldn't be scraping against the ground. Once I arrived, they immediately started on my car. The mechanic had to use a heat-gun to melt the ice to get to all the mounting holes. After about 90 minutes, I was handed my keys and told that I was set. They had repaired the skid plate using fasteners that they had on-hand, but didn't charge me a dime, nor ask for compensation of any kind. For this reason, I feel compelled to write this glowing review about my experience. I would definitely recommend this business to others, and will very likely take my car there in the future, should it need repairs.

Fair, fast, ethical, professional & caring. My bill went from $330 to $180; I went for a starter replacement, they quickly found I was wrong about the problem. Discovered a fuel leak, brought the part I needed from Knoxville, total stay of under 2.5hrs. This was the third time I went to them for help. When they did my head-gasket replacement a year ago, it was discovered that I needed an extra $200+ in parts due to cracked heads; they still honored the [$1200] original estimate..! Second time, my car died while driving, late at night. I called the mechanic's personal cell, they towed my car, and even offered me a ride home. Diagnosed & fixed the next day.

People's Choice has sometimes surprised me at the counter when things weren't entered into the computers right, however they've always made it right and done business honorably. They've had a few opportunities to leave me high and dry because of my car being in poor shape but they've always made sure I'm well taken care of. The first time I came here I needed an immobilizer repaired and every auto shop in town thought I was talking about getting a breathalyzer installed, but this was the only shop that actually knew what part I was talking about and was able to get it installed and fixed. Then when I had to get my power steering pump replaced, they were able to fix that and a few other problems from the last guy I had work on it (some crossed threads and improperly installed hoses), and they worked with me very generously on the price considering the parts that went into it. Chris is the owner, I've dealt with him a few times, and he does business the right way. I'll come here even if somewhere else quotes me a better price to know I won't get swindled and that things will be taken care of every time hands down.
