    Scheduled Maintenance

    The best way to keep your car on the road is via scheduled maintenance checks. We can perform all regular maintenance tasks that a dealer could on most vehicle makes and models. The difference is we offer service with a personal touch and competitive pricing. Following the recommended maintenance schedule for your car can lengthen its life span and increase its performance. Give us a call today to set up your next maintenance visit.

  • AC Recharge and Repair

    AC Recharge and Repair

    California summers are not known for being cool. El Cajon drivers need to make sure that their AC systems are ready for the summer and fall months. We offer service on compressors, condensers evaporators, and the drive belt. An AC recharge is not a task that just any auto shop can perform, but our highly trained mechanics can make the process quick and painless. If your AC is on the fritz, roll down your windows and roll up to Elite Smog and Auto so we can get you back on the road comfortably.

  • Check Engine Light Diagnostics

    Check Engine Light Diagnostics

    The check engine light is one of the most aggravating issues our customers face, but it isn't for our mechanics. We don't pull trouble codes and leave it at that. Instead, we run thorough diagnostics to get to the problem of the issue the first time around. This ensures you can pass the Certified Smog Check and properly solve any problems that may be affecting the performance of your vehicle. If you see the light pop on, drive into our shop and we will get to the root of the problem.

  • Lube and Oil and Filter Change

    Lube and Oil and Filter Change

    Oil and filter checks are vital to the health of your engine. A properly lubricated engine runs smoothly and without any strain. One that is not will slowly burn out until major and costly repairs are required. As part of the standard oil service at Elite Smog and Auto, you also receive a 40-point inspection to ensure your vehicle is road-worthy. In addition, we check your air pressure and top off your fluids with every oil change.

  • Certified Smog Check

    Certified Smog Check

    San Diego requires all drivers who have a car manufactured after 1975 to get a biannual Certified smog check. Drivers of new vehicles get a waiver for the first six years, but afterward they must pass a Certified smog check as well. These tests must be performed at a Star Certified smog check location, which Elite Smog and Auto is proud to be. Unlike other test stations, if you fail your smog check we can offer repair options on-site to keep you legally on the road without any delay.
  • Brake and Rotors Check

    Brake and Rotors Check

    The brakes on your vehicle are one of the most important safety components built into the construction of your car. Therefore, you need to schedule regular brake and rotors service to ensure they stay in top condition. If you hear any sounds coming from under your tires this is a sign that you are due for brake and rotors services. This is not something you want to put off as it can cause a safety hazard and result in damage and a higher repair bill.
