Here’s More on Our Most Popular Auto Repair & Maintenance Services

  • Brake Inspection, Service & Repair

    Brake Inspection, Service & Repair

    When it comes to your vehicle’s braking system, there’s no room for procrastination or error. During a brake inspection and service, we’ll ensure your car is ready to stop reliably, and that your brake system provides maximum protection and stopping power. Also call us if you need any brake-related repair, including diagnostic, pad replacement, lining replacement, wheel cylinder, master cylinder, emergency brakes, and brake rotors.

  • Computer Diagnostics

    Computer Diagnostics

    With today’s modern automobiles, it’s becoming increasingly important to have strong diagnostic capabilities to correctly communicate with onboard vehicle computers and determine exactly what’s causing vehicle issues. At Southgate Automotive, we are proud to say we have state-of-the art computer diagnostic equipment, and we will continue to invest in the latest automotive technology and ongoing training for our mechanics.

  • Cooling Systems

    Cooling Systems

    One of the most common causes of vehicle breakdowns is cooling system failure. The cooling system regulates the temperature in your engine, and protects it from overheating and damage, so when there’s a cooling system problem, your car’s overall health is in danger—and you’re risking a breakdown. If your temperature gauge had been running high or you’re experiencing a coolant leak, don’t hesitate to bring your vehicle to SGA for service.

  • Timing Belt Replacement

    Timing Belt Replacement

    Failing to get your timing belt replaced when it needs to be can result in complete engine failure or, at a minimum, severe engine damage. Signs of a worn or stretched timing belt include rough idling or difficulty starting the engine. Cracks on the belt are an indication that it may soon break. Replacement of your timing belt will help keep your engine performing as it should and ensure you avoid expensive future repairs. 

  • Tune-ups


    When your car is properly tuned, the engine, computer system, fuel system, ignition system, and emission system are all working together in perfect harmony. When it’s not, your vehicle is not performing with optimum power and efficiency. As part of a tune-up at SGA, we’ll check (and replace if necessary) your sparkplugs, ignition coils, distributor cap and rotor, and ignition wires. When we’re done, you’ll enjoy a better ride, and likely save money at the gas pump.

  • Vehicle Factory Maintenance

    Vehicle Factory Maintenance

    Vehicle factory maintenance intervals are designed to improve the dependability, durability, and resale value of your car or truck. Depending on your vehicle’s service interval mileage, our mechanics may inspect your steering and suspension components, fluids, belts and hoses, and more during a preventive maintenance check-up. Preventive maintenance also protects your vehicle against potential major auto repairs.
