Our heavy duty services include:
A cylinder block is the powerhouse for the motor vehicle. The solid cast car part houses the cylinders and their components (gaskets, valves, and seals) inside a lubricated and cooled crankcase. Since it is one of the most important parts of your car, the block is designed to be extremely strong and sturdy. Although strong and sturdy, the block is susceptible to failure resulting in a vehicle that won't start. Cracked blocks, porous blocks, core plug, or freeze plug failure are some of the problems facing cylinder blocks. Call 209-933-1829 to talk to the mechanics of Familia Automotive about your cylinder block problems.
A cylinder head is the closed end of a cylinder (located in a car's engine block). It sits above the cylinder block, closing the top of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. The cylinder head coordinates airflow in and out of the engine. Since the cylinder head's chief function is to seal the cylinders properly, insufficient compression results in the car being difficult to drive. To have your cylinder head checked and repaired, talk to Familia Automotive's cylinder head repair and reconditioning specialists today.
Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:
- Changing the oil & filter
- Changing the air filter
- Changing the fuel filter
- Bleeding the fuel system
- Draining the water separators
- Refilling the urea injection system
You can count on the experts at Familia Automotive to help your diesel engine last a long time.
Any car part manufacturer will tell you that preventive maintenance is critical to the part's lifespan. Like other auto parts, car engines aren't built to last forever. However, you can increase the engine's lifespan by performing regular preventive maintenance. The easiest way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy is to provide regular engine maintenance for your vehicle. To have your engine maintained by experts, visit Familia Automotive.
A timing belt is a part of your car's internal combustion engine. The belt synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at the correct timings. Also, the belt prevents the piston from striking the valves in an interference engine. A timing Belt is a rubber belt that usually features teeth on the inside surface, while a timing chain is a metal roller chain. Most cars we drive now have timing belts instead of timing chains and gears. Although different manufacturers have their recommended mileage, you need to have your car's timing belt checked regularly. To have it checked by experts, contact Familia Automotive today.
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 209-933-1829 or visit Familia Automotive today - we are transmission experts.

what our customers say
Familia Automotive is an outstanding place to have your car repaired. The owner makes you feel part of his family the second you walk in. I have never felt this with any of the other shops I have taken my car to. I felt comfortable asking questions and voicing my concerns. Familia Automotive fixed my car right the first time, told me to come back if there were any issues, and were very competitively priced and with better service. Highest praises for fixing my 1998 Saab Turbo 900 SE.
This is by far the best auto repair shop I've ever been to. Clint was amazing, friendly and efficient, I was referred by a friend and will happily refer my friends. The techs or Clint (the one I dealt with) was honest and did not try to up-sell me. He made me feel welcomed and explained everything he did. Great people!! and Clint!!
A family member of mine recommended familia automotive and i have not gone anywhere else since then. The owner Klent has great communication and explains exactly what needs work on your vehicle and why. He gives recommendations on where you can go if he does not have parts or services needed and best of all has great pricing. Best in Stockton!!
