Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

Rely on European Motorsport LLC in Dorchester, MA 02122 to provide quality care for your vehicle's undercarriage. Stop by our shop to see how we can help you or call 617-269-7799 for more information.

To keep your vehicle running at peak performance, we provide undercar services that include:

Alignment
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit European Motorsport LLC.

Anti-Lock Brakes
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At European Motorsport LLC, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.

Brakes
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at European Motorsport LLC can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.

Brake System Flush
Brake fluid is hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture). The absorbed moisture lowers the fluid's boiling point. It also corrodes the lines and cylinders. With the lowered boiling point, the brake fluid could boil during braking which makes you lose braking ability. Although this is an extreme scenario, it does happen in heavy braking. To reduce the effects of the absorbed moisture, auto manufacturers recommend that you have a brake flush done periodically. A brake system flush involves the replacement of used and contaminated fluid with fresh fluid. With European Motorsport LLC's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 617-269-7799 or visit European Motorsport LLC today.

Chassis
A chassis is the car's internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects. At European Motorsport LLC, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.

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 European Motorsport LLC today for differentials examination and servicing.

Differential Flush
The differential is a car part that compensates for the difference in travel distance between the inner wheels and outer wheels when the vehicle is turning. Due to the differential's position in most non-four-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles (located at the rear and under the car), it does not get any of the star treatment the engine gets. The one thing that every car owner needs to know is that failure of the differential will mean failure of the car. To save the differential from failure, you need to have differential fluid changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Changing the oil on the differential is as important as changing the car's engine oil. Although checking and changing differential oil is pretty easy, you need to visit an auto shop to get a comprehensive differential flush. For differential flush services, visit or call European Motorsport LLC in Dorchester, MA 02122 today.

Exhaust
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better - for you, your car, and the environment. European Motorsport LLC has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.

Tires
As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition. For all your tire needs, contact European Motorsport LLC today.

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 European Motorsport LLC, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Shocks
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit European Motorsport LLC today.

Struts
Much like a shock absorber (shocks), your car's struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road's surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant and uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your car's suspension. This means that struts support your car's weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time. Call European Motorsport LLC at 617-269-7799 if you have questions about the struts on your car. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.

Testimonials

  • Had trouble with 2013 A4 with 6-speed manual that would barely shift anymore with 36K and thought it need clutch/throw out bearing replaced. After disassembly Mike called and let me know what he thought was really going on was due to dual mass flywheel and unfortunately clutch replacement would not fix the issue. It ended up costing much more than original scope of only clutch kit replacement but thanks to Mike's time spent researching the issue we got it fixed right the first time!

  • Great great place. Can't say enough about Mike - he calls you back immediately, they don't try to get you to fix things that don't need fixing, they couldn't be nicer - he even remembers my face and my name! The car has been in great shape since I had it fixed up there - also, I've rolled in there with a flat tire and they've replaced the tire on the spot in fifteen minutes. They are just great and you cannot go wrong with the service. I don't think they are expensive at all compared to a dealer and they are far more trustworthy. Let me just say - I have a ten year old plain old Toyota Camry CE and I am getting the best service one can get, so they aren't even snobby about the cars they fix! Use this place if your car needs anything.

  • First off, I consider myself a car guy, not quite a 'gear-head'; but I love my cars. I don't drive the nicest of Benz's, or the fastest of Porsche's, but my VW is my dream car.. and I drive it, for lack of a better term 'enthusiastically' (spirited). I change fluids, I use good parts, and I take care of it (take care of your things, and your things will take care of you). This means that whenever I need anything handled, I bring it to Mike (Curry). Not only is he a whiz about all that is cars, he is the NICEST guy I've ever worked with.. Sure, the work isn't cheap, but I would pay MORE if I had to, to get the service and quality work that goes into my car, and my time with them. Options are always laid out, prices are always on point, and service is always through the roof.. Recommended? No, I URGE you to bring your car in for service here, get it done right the first time.. so that it won't break down on you in the future. You won't feel 'taken' when you leave here.. I Promise Promise Promise you will love the work they do.

  • I have been bringing a BMW here for a few years. They do an outstanding job and are happy to explain any work. I feel very confident that I'm getting the real story. There have been times I know they could have told me something needed fixing, but instead they told me I still had life and didn't pressure a fix. They were always right. It's very comforting to feel like you can trust your mechanic. If you have a foreign car give these guys a shot because you won't be disappointed. Mike the owner is a straight shooter and easy going guy. He understands doing a good job equates to a loyal customer. He even has the cars washed before you pick them up. There is definitely a sense of pride in his shop. Basically I know when my car rolls out of this place it is in the best shape it can be.
    -Craig G.

  • Finding a trustworthy and fair auto mechanic is a very difficult task. I am happy to have found European Motorsport. Mike, the owner, has taken excellent care of me every since my first visit 4 yrs ago. He will be honest with you regarding any immediate service as well as tell you if things really dont need to be addressed at that moment. I brought my estimate from Herb Chambers of the number of things wrong my with my BMW that NEEDED to be fixed according to them. When I brought the car to EM, Mike put the car up on the lift and pointed out the areas of interest and their status. 2 of the 7 things actually needed repair. He also showed me a brand new part to compare it to the one that was on my car! Talking a customer out of buying a new part? Really!? It could have been a flux capacitor for anyone who doesn't know cars. My car runs perfect and I will continue to send all of my family and friends to Mike. A real class act Plus he washes the car and cleans it up before returning it to the customer.
    -Mike S.

  • Fantastic first time experience. Brought in my 2014 Audi S4 for a 10k interval oil change and wheel alignment. Made reservation quick and easy online. Great, prompt email communication (not easy to find these days). Dropped off car in the morning before work, picked it up same day after lunch. Car exterior and interior were also courteously cleaned. I can't imagine I would ever go to a dealership for service ever again.
    -Pete T.

  • I had been taking my VW to a garage in Cambridge for the past ten years. When I found it suddenly out of business, I needed a new, trustworthy mechanic. I found European Motorsport and just stopped in. Mike did a thorough examination of my car and provided individual quotes for groups of service. Despite no appointment, he stayed beyond closing time, and completed only the work I requested. And performed it well. Also, and I don't know if it's their standard practice, but they also washed my car. I will definitely be going back to complete the remainder (and any future) work.
    -Keith R.

  • I bought a used car last fall, and some issues started to crop up after I'd had the car for a few months. I had an idea of what the problems were and how to fix them, but I didn't have the time or space to do the work myself. Communication with Kelley to set up the initial appointment and follow-up on the repairs was great, and the process was very easy. Evan and Mike took a look at the car and diagnosed several issues, confirming my own analysis. Their suggestions to solve the problems were very reasonable, and the repair work was great. Mike went beyond the expected repairs and looked around for a sensor connector that is just missing missing from my car; I appreciate the effort and attention to detail. My car was returned to me with all of the problems solved, running better than it had been, and thoroughly detailed. Absolutely fantastic work all around.
    -Daniel W.

  • Excellent! Extremely skilled, trustworthy and professional.. takes the time to communicate what is needed and prioritize the work. Kept my BMW 327i in top shape for 15 years! The last auto maintenance person you will ever need.
    -Sherry C.

  • Friendly, clean shop with excellent equipment (Hunter Road Force Tire Balancer). They solved my vibration issue flawlessly the first time! Glad I found this shop and I will definitely be back.
    -Gregory F.

  • This is one of the best mechanic shops around. Their attention to detail, customer service and ability to diagnosis and fix problems is the best! Kelley (the front desk manager) is easy to get a hold of and book appointments by email or online. Mike (the owner/mechanic) explains things thoroughly and is very personable. I've never met a mechanic/owner that takes that much time with clients. They wash and vacuum your car before returning it to you. I especially love the honesty of this business; there were two things I thought I wanted fixed on my car and when I told Mike about them he explained to me that they weren't really big deals and weren't worth the money to fix them. I really appreciated this honesty; on an 11 year old car I just want to make sure it is safe to drive and not going to leave me stranded (fixing a broken cup holder probably isn't worth the money).
    -Darren P.

  • Mike and his expert crew are amazing! Very knowledgeable, professional and personable! I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them to others! Vehicle: BMW 530i
