4X4 SERVICES

The technicians at Covenant Automotive Repair & Service have years of experience working on standard 4-wheel drive (4x4) vehicles as well as all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles. AWD is a full-time 4-wheel-drive system (all four wheels receive torque from the engine simultaneously) that employs a center differential that allows each tire to rotate at different speeds.

We understand the special needs of these vehicles. These are some of the services we offer.


Transmissions
Transmission repair is not something to take lightly. The transmission is connected to key parts of your vehicle and needs to be working properly for your safety. Transmission services include replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent transmission damage. Typical transmission issues that may lead to repair may include shifting issues, slipping, stalling, fluid leaking, and the service light turning on. If you are concerned that you may need transmission repair, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment at Covenant Automotive Repair & Service today.

Transfer Cases
A transfer case is a part of a four wheel drive system found in four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts. Trust the automotive experts at Covenant Automotive Repair & Service for all your transmission repairs.

Differentials
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact Covenant Automotive Repair & Service today for differentials examination and servicing.

Driveline
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Covenant Automotive Repair & Service, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Wheel Bearings
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. Covenant Automotive Repair & Service can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.

Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let Covenant Automotive Repair & Service replace your worn out hubs today.

Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit Covenant Automotive Repair & Service today.

Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 520-351-2061 or visit Covenant Automotive Repair & Service today.

A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit Covenant Automotive Repair & Service in Tucson, AZ 85712 today.

Testimonials

  • After several visits to Mike's, I feel that I am obligated to say how grateful I am that he is here. I am the sort of person who gets very anxious when my vehicle has a problem. Mike and his team are very prompt in assessing the cause, and they then call and answer any and all questions I pose. Even if Mike is sure of the cause, he will do extra investigative work to make sure my worries are alleviated. Repairs are always quick and thorough; while working on the problem I noticed, Mike will check for other problems and tell me about them. And then we come to the price. Mike is, by far, the most affordable mechanic in town. Parts and labor far undercut all the other (reputable) shops. So, one less worry eased: I never have to fret over affording work when it comes to Mike. Even my "car guy" boyfriend can't find fault with Mike's work, communication, and prices. Thank you, Mike. My Jeep will never visit another mechanic as long as I am in Tucson. Sorry; this is a bit of a wordy thank you. But I simply cannot express in words how much I appreciate the work you've done for me in the last few years.

  • Mike was my last call for automobile repair quotes. I was truly frustrated after five calls and he offered great relief. The dealerships and auto repair franchises in this town were so off the mark regarding my simple SUV strut/shock change. Mike brought me down to Earth with his professionalism, realistic charges (slaughtered the others), warranties, and proven expertise. He may become your prime choice, too...js
    -Joe S.

  • So helpful! Mike was able to help me out at a moment's notice and did a great job on my car. Highly recommended due to great customer service.
    -Jamie

  • This was my first time having work done by Mike. He exceeded my expectations. He and his team were professional and considerate to my concerns of needing repair work done. Mike is a genuinely nice man and makes the angst of car repair much more reassuring.
    -Jeanie

  • All I can say is I wish you were here in Amarillo where I just moved. I've never had such good service from anyone, and I am a real skeptic when it comes to mechanics. You and your crew are the best. Thank you!
    -Bonnie Lundy

  • Mike and his team recently replaced the engine in my 2003 GMC. Mike did the job below other's estimates and provided continuous updates on the status of the job. Excellent knowledge and great customer service. I have found my local mechanic for my vehicles. I will let no one else touch my vehicles. Thanks for everything, great job.
    -Frank B.

  • Shortly after moving to Tucson I was referred to "Mike the Mechanic" by a friend who had moved here a few years earlier---it has turned out to be the best referral ever! It is sometimes hard for single women to not feel "victimized" by mechanics/shops because they know most women know very little about their vehicles, and moving from a cold state (UT) to such a hot climate, I knew I would need help to take care of my "older" car. Mike has proven himself to be an honest, efficient, skilled, and reliable source that has earned my respect and trust to take care of my car's needs. He never suggests any service that is not necessary knowing that I am on a strict budget but always makes sure I am kept aware of what should be done for preventative care.
    -D. McDonald

  • I was not gonna trust "Pep Boys" w/putting in a new tranny in my '94 Mercury Cougar. I did my research & decided on "Mike The Mechanic". He did a fine job - it would have been costly anywhere, but w/him I felt assured he'd done it right. He even steered me to his auto supply who put in my replacement headlight bulb for free!
    -Kandy Langford

  • The guys at Mikes Mechanics are very nice guys, my husband's truck broke down he had it towed to Mikes and called me to pick him up and by the time we pulled in our driveway, mike called and told us the truck was fixed. Now that's fast Service.. We now take both work trucks and my van to Mikes Shop..
    -Barbara Mucciacciaro

  • I live a 100 miles away in Phoenix, however, after discovering Mike the Mechanic, I make a point traveling the 100 miles to keep my vehicle properly maintained by Mike the Mechanic! It's worth the 100 mile drive and despite the cost of gas, it's a savings on my pocket!

  • I broke down in Tucson and my insurance company provided the name of the nearest garage - Mike the Mechanic. Talk about HONEST! I've always said there are two things difficult to find, "A Good Doctor" and "An Honest Mechanic" - one down, one to go!
