ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance. It also impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine. Trust the experts at Scotty's Auto Repair to help you protect your investment. Call us at 951-697-7708 or visit our shop in Riverside 92507.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 951-697-7708 or visit Scotty's Auto Repair today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Scotty's Auto Repair today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Scotty's Auto Repair in Riverside, CA 92507. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Scotty's Auto Repair, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 951-697-7708 or visit Scotty's Auto Repair today.

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 Scotty's Auto Repair in Riverside, CA 92507.

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 Scotty's Auto Repair, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 951-697-7708 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.


What Our Customers Are Saying

The Best Auto Repair Shop in Riverside and Moreno Valley for over 20 years. The are Knowledgeable about all our cars. I highly recommend them for Smog's and all repairs. Awesome Shop, give them a call!


-Alice M.

My family never trusted anybody but my father to work on all of our vehicles, when he passed away three years ago we were all desperate to find someone that we could trust to work on our vehicles. When we found Scotty's and saw the way that he and his wife ran the business we knew the entire family would stick with Scotty's because of their sincere honesty, their affordability and their family oriented way of running the business. I highly recommend Scotty's!


-Hannah J.

Scotty's Auto Repair is amazing! I wouldn't take my care anywhere else. The owners and staff are all incredible people!


-Doug C.

Scott and his team are among the best mechanics in the area...and even more important, they have integrity! They stand behind their work and will do whatever is necessary to make it right! I have absolute confidence in the work they do!


-Willie B.

I brought my 2007 4Runner in for a smog check. As always I was provided excellent service. Scott had me out in less than 45 minutes and that included a courtesy check of the entire vehicle. Always a great experience at Scotty's.


-Stu K.

Scotty's has time and again demonstrated incomparable service. Our latest experience involved a last minute smog test for a private vehicle sale. With one phone call, Caren was able to brief me on all of the requirements and immediately get me in to have the car smog tested. Scotty's literally saved the day. Thank you for being such a great business to deal with. It's truly a pleasure!


-N. Peterson

An online search yielded multiple glowing reviews for Scotty's Auto Repair, and we are happy to report that our experience was a positive and anxiety-relieving process. Samantha (aka "Sam") was patient and informative during our phone discussions regarding our options. Manager Kelly gave us sage advice regarding the engine replacement and delivered a smoothly running vehicle--at a fair price--on the day promised.


-Chris I.

As usual, Scotty's delivered! Quick and complete. Total came in slightly under what was originally quoted. It is very hard to find an honest mechanic, but Scotty's fits the bill.


-Anthony M.

Great customer service...car needed some work done to pass smog, Scotty's fixed the problem...car passed. Thank you!


-John R.

This is an honest, family owned and operated business. We have been going here for years, and we trust Scotty's completely!


-Anonymous

I discovered "Scotty's" several years ago and have been a loyal customer since. Scott is the ONLY mechanic I allow to work on my vehicles because he's professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and respects fine automobiles. In fact, he treats my Lexus better than the Riverside Lexus dealer! The front-desk gal, Caren, knows more about vehicles than a lot of mechanics and I absolutely trust her to give me honest and accurate advice. Do yourself and your vehicle a favor and hook up with Scotty, Caren, and Sam for service, value, and courtesy.


-Mel G.

Brought my civic in for an electrical issue. Turned out to be very minor. They completely reasonable in fee. They had it done quick, and I was on my way. Also, they are super nice.


-Sean P.

My service van was overheating and I had product that needed to be delivered. This place was the closest in Maps, so I stopped here. The staff here is so friendly, and the mechanics fixed my issue and got me back on the road in no time. Highly recommended!


-Aaron H.

Scotty's Auto Repair was truly a find. They worked to determine the problem with my vehicle and then worked to find the best parts to fix it. We did not end up having the repairs done since we opted for a new vehicle. Scotty's will be my go to place for any repairs that I may need in the future. Sam and Raven will work with you to get you the best work and price for that work.


-Timothy J.

Scotty's is great! Very Honest and every time I take my Saturn Vue there I know I won't get ripped off. I won't go anywhere else for auto repair. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed!
