for any of the following services:

Brake System

The most important arrangement in your car is the brake system and it is crucial to have a superior working one. From brake inspection to fluid flush, we provide full service repair and maintenance on your brake system.

Inspection: Inspecting your brakes is our first priority and our examinations are complete and thorough. We also test the condition of the brake fluid.

Pads: Brake pad replacement is often a task that gets overlooked and our long lasting brake pads continue to receive positive review by our customers because we never use the sub standard pads.

Rotors: If a new brake rotor or drum is required to be replaced, you can guarantee a first-rate quality rotor or drum will be chosen. Resurfacing is also included because rotors would otherwise become deformed after a short amount of time.

Fluid Flush: Old brake fluid causes issues such as leaks, sticking calipers, longer stopping distances and eventually greater brake repair. We provide advanced fluid flushing of your brakes and will therefore guarantee a longer life for your brake fluid afterwards.

Is your ABS Light on? If yes, you need brake service and we will provide the proper testing and repairing to solve the problem.

Heating and Cooling

We provide preventive maintenance services, such as radiators, water pumps and hoses, that guarantee your engine will not overheat.

Cooling System Hoses: Like rubber parts, cooling system hoses are not meant to survive the same amount of time as your car. They should be replaced every five years to avoid old age and unpredictability.

Radiators: The engine must be kept cool to avoid serious issues like overheating and seizure. Our top quality radiators pump a mixture of water and anti-freeze through chambers in the engine block to help prevent these problems.

Coolant Flush: We use a flushing machine that allows the replacement of 100 percent of your old fluid and will safely remove deposits that cause leaks.

You can also trust in us that we will use the highest quality of water pumps to keep your vehicle cool.

Problem Solving

Our technicians are trained to use the latest diagnostic equipment to repair your car and provide answers to any questions that you may have about your vehicle.

If your engine is cranking, but is not starting: Our technicians are trained to provide the highest level of skills and diagnostic testing to solve the problem of a cranking engine that does not start.

If your engine is not cranking: It is easy to draw conclusions about what this signifies but a dead battery can be a lot more than just a dead battery. It could mean that there is a short in the system, that an alternator is not charging or even that an alternator is charging but has a bad diode, which drains a battery. Let us determine what exactly is going on with your engine.

If your “Check Engine” light is on: A common request from our customers is to solve the problem of the “Check Engine” light coming on. Our technicians are trained to use the current diagnostic equipment to properly tackle today's modern computer system.


We take care of all of your precautionary maintenance needs. From filter change to coolant flush, we guarantee your satisfaction in whatever needs you may have.

Fluid Checks: Not only do we check to ensure your fluids are full, but we sample the condition of your fluids. This is important because damaged fluids do not lubricate and can lead to unnecessary repairs.

Oil and Filter Change: We use high quality products and original oil filters to ensure that your engine is getting the filtration and lubrication it needs.

Tire Rotation: Rotating your tires is a very inexpensive way to add thousands of extra miles to your vehicle.

Brake Fluid Flush: Old brake fluid can cause leaks, sticking calipers and longer stopping distances when you brake. We provide fluid flushing and chemical testing to guarantee a long life span of your brake fluid.

Coolant Flush: We use a flushing machine that allows the replacement of 100 percent of your old fluid and will safely remove deposits that cause leaks.


We provide the appropriate maintenance and service needed for transmissions and engines to avoid larger problems in the future.

Transmission Machine Flush: In comparison to generic oil change places, our transmission flush is more reliable and much better quality. Substances and deposits tend to build up inside your transmission and we make it a priority to clean it out and replace the old with new, fresh fluid.

Transmission Filter Service: We replace fiber filters located in most transmissions and reseal the bottom pan with a gasket or sealer, completely assuring you that future transmission leaks will be avoided.

Looking for engine service? From tune-ups to manifold gaskets, timing belts to full replacement, we as a full service repair facility offer high quality service to fixing your engine.

Air Conditioning Service: If your air conditioning system has stopped blowing cold, this is a sign that there might be a leak, the system is low of refrigerant, or simply that it is in need of inspection.

Customer Testimonials

Absolutely the best mechanic I have ever used.  Extremely high integrity and someone you can trust!

- J. Beach

Years ago, we were still relatively new to the area and had difficulties finding a mechanic with whom we felt comfortable and trusted. Then came that fateful day when while out running errands, I noticed a sign for a new mechanic in the area, “Gunner’s Garage.” There had been some auto repair work I had been putting off, thinking I might find the time to do it myself some weekend, but today I thought I’d take a chance and check out a “new guy”.

I was immediately impressed with Guy’s friendliness, and his willingness to give me suggestions for possible sources of the problem and solutions, including answering questions I had about some of the repair work I had previously completed. Ever since, when ever our cars have needed maintenance work or major repairs, we have turned to Gunner’s. In every visit I have been impressed with the quality of work performed by both Guy and Josh, and their knowledge/experience with a variety of vehicle makes and models. Guy clearly identifies expected charges ahead of time, follows up immediately if additional cost or concerns arise, and completes the work within the time framed discussed. I have also found their labor rates to be very reasonable, and will continue to recommend Gunner’s Garage to friends and neighbors.

Even though we are living the in suburbs, our entire family is happy to have found a reliable and friendly “neighborhood” mechanic in Gunner’s Garage.
