Car Care: Auto Maintenance Services

Advanced Automotive Repair in Frederick, MD 21701 is a full-service preventative maintenance and auto repair center, providing comprehensive car care services for your domestic or import vehicle to keep it running at full power. For questions, contact us at 301-662-4083 or send us an email, and our experts will help determine what needs to be done.

Our basic auto maintenance services include:

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Advanced Automotive Repair, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 301-662-4083 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Factory Recommended Service/Maintenance
Automotive and auto parts come with a factory recommended service and maintenance schedule. The manufacturer will tell you how often to service or replace an auto part. At Advanced Automotive Repair, we offer factory recommended service/maintenance. Our highly skilled auto mechanics offer comprehensive knowledge and experience. At Advanced Automotive Repair, all your factory recommended service/maintenance needs are handled with the latest diagnostic equipment. Remember, we work on all American and imported vehicles (either diesel or gas engines).

30/60/90K Mileage Maintenance
As time goes by, various auto repair and maintenance needs come up at different intervals. Most manufacturers recommend car maintenance in intervals of 30,000 miles. This is the 30/60/90K mile schedule (issued by the manufacturers to car owners). Trust the experts at Advanced Automotive Repair to keep you on schedule, and help you preserve the condition of the vehicle, optimize its performance, and increase its resale value. The 30/60/90K service includes the following:

  • Fluid replacements
  • Oil and Filter changes
  • Tire rotation, spin balance, and pressure adjustments
  • Inspection of parts and systems - gears, tires, brake pads, belts, hoses, etc.
  • With higher mileage: spark plugs, belts, timing belts when applicable

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Advanced Automotive Repair in Frederick, MD 21701.

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 Advanced Automotive 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 Advanced Automotive Repair today. The mechanics at Advanced Automotive Repair will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

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 Advanced Automotive 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 Advanced Automotive Repair today. The mechanics at Advanced Automotive Repair will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

Definitely take your car or truck to him, you will not be sad you did, just sad if you don't!

Excellent work and great value from a top team. Along with honesty, integrity and excellence in service, I fully recommend Advanced Automotive and Jim for service on any vehicle.


-FV

Jim was very professional from the beginning. I felt so comfortable leaving my car for state inspection. I am new in the area. I will be taking my car for service from now on. I am glad there is a good reliable and honest mechanic shop in Frederick. Thanks!


-Jimmy R.

Had both cars in for the state inspection. Very knowledgeable and detailed in their explanation(s). Jim is old school customer service, which is a great thing!


-Nick T.

We have been using Advanced Automotive Repair for our cars for many years and have always been satisfied with the excellent service and reasonable prices. Jim is skilled and knowledgeable and he doesn't upsell unnecessary repairs. The shop and waiting room are not fancy but that's okay because we appreciate the repair and maintenance costs being kept low.


-KJ

Great place! Very knowledgeable owner/ mechanic, with more industry certifications than any other mechanic in the area. They offer the full spectrum of automotive repair services, as well as Maryland State Inspections (at one of the lowest prices in the area), they are also a Maryland Certified Emissions Repair Facility. They take the extra steps necessary to do the job the correct way, without taking short cuts. You can feel confident that the work they perform on your vehicle will be done properly, and at the highest standards of quality.


-Karl S.

First time going here. Very honest & open. Plain spoken explanations of what vehicle needs on an inspection and old parts replaced to view. Top notch car care.


-Mike N.

Shari and I got my vehicle inspected at Jim's garage last week and as always we were given the best service and the best advice with the car. Jim takes pride in his work. His number 1 goal is that he provides safety to you when you are on the road. His knowledge on vehicles is like no other mechanic. 2 thumbs up to advanced automobile repair. Thank you Jim .


-Todd W.

My first time being there for my Maryland State Inspection. I received the best customer service and great care for my car. I would recommend this place to everyone! Your needs and best interest are in the forefront of mind. You won't be disappointed.


-Priscille D.

We took our car to Advanced Automotive Repair and dealt with Kim on the phone and Jim in person. They both were a delight to deal with and we felt that we were in good hands immediately. Jim is the type of mechanic that everyone should know and use, he has a "Don't fix it if it isn't broken!" philosophy, much unlike your typical car dealer's service center. This saves you money and time and makes you want to bring your vehicle back to him for service. He explains things and makes sure you understand what he is explaining. He takes the time to make sure that you are happy with what he is going to do and then takes the time to make sure that you are still happy after he is done.
