Learn More about Our Specialty Automotive Services

  • Auto Electrical Repairs

    Specialty Automotive Service & Repair started out as an auto electrical shop, which means we're extremely knowledgeable and skilled when it comes to auto electrical repairs. Wiring, re-wiring, shorts, draws, and burn jobs are second nature to us, and other auto repair shops in the Bend area even send their electrical conundrums to us to untangle and set right. Our mechanics are simply experts at pinpointing poor or inadequate electrical connections that can affect vehicle operability and drivability.

  • Brakes

    You must be able to rely on your car's braking system to give you maximum stopping power when you need it, so if you are experiencing any symptoms of a brake problem, such as squealing, grinding, or slow braking response time, it's time for a brake inspection. If you haven't had your brakes serviced in some time, it's also a good idea to give us a call. Our mechanics are experienced and professionally trained, and we use only high quality parts that meet or exceed OEM standards.


  • Front End

    Modern vehicles have increasingly more precise and complex front end components than in the past, which means steering system parts become more and more critical for your car's overall performance. If you're experiencing a shaky, rough ride, your shocks and/or struts could be the problem, or you may need other front end work. Our team of mechanics can handle any repairs involving your front end components, suspension system, and shocks and struts, and all front end service is complemented with a front end alignment.


  • Fluid Maintenance

    Consistently changing your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles is key to a healthy car, but there are other fluids that need attention every now and then, including coolant fluid, power steering fluid, brake fluid, and transmission fluid. Cars rely on coolant to keep the engine from overheating, power steering fluid is necessary for your steering system to work properly, a transmission fluid flush helps avoid expensive transmission problems, and your braking system can build up sludge over time. At Specialty Automotive Service & Repair, we check the level and quality of all your fluids to see how you are doing and whether it's time for a flush.



  • Engine Repair & Diagnostics

    Your vehicle's engine is at the center of its overall performance, and if it's running poorly all your car's systems and components may be compromised. At Specialty Automotive Service & Repair, we have the skill and experience to handle all types of engine maintenance, engine diagnostics, and repair issues, from oil changes to timing belt replacement to engine rebuilds and engine replacement. When you need a major engine repair or replacement, we'll work with you to accommodate your budget and your schedule.
  • Cooling System Repair

    We regularly handle cooling system repairs at Specialty Automotive Service & Repair, and have no problem repairing and replacing intake systems and components, such as the OEM filter, air filter, and other cooling system parts that affect your fuel inject system and the temperature regulation of your engine. Call us today if you're experiencing or suspect any issues with your car's cooling system. Do not risk major damage to your vehicle, which can happen if your engine overheats.
