Miscellaneous Auto Services

For whatever else may pose a threat to your vehicle's road performance, our knowledgeable auto specialists provide a number of other miscellaneous auto services. And because our work is guaranteed, you can rest assured that you're receiving the best workmanship possible. Let us know how we can help you! Contact us at 248-852-3095 to set up an appointment for additional quality auto services.

Our miscellaneous auto services include:

Most Extended Warranties Accepted
An extended warranty (also known as a service contract) can provide peace of mind to most car buyers. The warranty (or service contract) kicks in after the usual manufacturer warranty has expired. An extended warranty covers major breakdowns and evens out the cost of repairs. Unfortunately, not all auto repair shops accept extended warranties. At Al Dean's Auto Repair in Auburn Hills, MI 48326, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.

After-Hours Drop Off
Sometimes auto repair needs arise long after most auto repair shops have closed (most auto repair shops close at 6 pm). With after-hours drop off services, you leave your car at the mechanics shop for repair even if the shop has closed. You simply fill out an envelope, put in your keys, and drop it in a drop box. The auto shop will only contact you when your car is ready or when they need additional information. At Al Dean's Auto Repair, we value your convenience and that is why we offer after-hours drop off services. A completed Drop-Off Form will help the mechanic diagnose any problems. Even if we have closed, you just drop-off your vehicle at our shop and our mechanics will work on it and contact you when it is ready.

Free Local Pickup and Delivery with Repairs By Appointment
In certain circumstances, auto shops offer pickup and delivery services. This is whereby the auto shop picks up the vehicle at your work place or home, works on it, and delivers it after it is fully repaired and serviced. This saves you time and money. The p/u and delivery service can be either free or paid for. At Al Dean's Auto Repair, we offer free local pickup and delivery whereby we routinely pick up your car from your home or workplace. We want to make the task of having that car repaired/serviced as stress free as possible. This service is subject to appointment.

Mobile Repair
Mobile repair is a type of auto repair service whereby the repair mechanic comes to you. At Al Dean's Auto Repair in Auburn Hills, MI 48326, we understand that most people do not have the time to wait in repair shops and they would rather have their vehicles repaired from their home, workplace, or roadside (if it has broken down on the roadside). We offer mobile repair service. Call us today at 248-852-3095 and tell us where you want your vehicle serviced.

RV Repair
Having issues with your recreational vehicle? Do not take your RV to just any mechanic. Rely on a professional only - a person/auto shop like Al Dean's Auto Repair that has a track record dealing with recreational vehicles. For all your RV repair and maintenance needs, contact or visit Al Dean's Auto Repair today. At Al Dean's Auto Repair, we have qualified mechanics that have extensive experience repairing and servicing RVs.

Performance Modifications
Do you have a passion for speed and performance? Performance modifications on your car let you attain high levels of speed and performance. This type of modification involves changing or completely replacing some of your vehicle's parts with high performance ones to boost its performance and speed. Mechanics at Al Dean's Auto Repair have a passion for performance too. The mechanics will make all the necessary performance modifications to ensure you get the best performance from your drive. For all your performance modification needs, contact us at 248-852-3095 or visit Al Dean's Auto Repair today.

Trailer Hitches, Wiring and Tires
Although a trailer does not have an engine of its own, it does require some maintenance. The trailer needs wires to move current to the brake lights and other lights at the back. Al Dean's Auto Repair has qualified and experienced electricians who will handle your trailer maintenance. Call us at 248-852-3095 to schedule an appointment.

On-Site Welding
Welding is the fabrication and sculptural process that joins metal parts. At Al Dean's Auto Repair, we offer various welding services. Simply give us a call at 248-852-3095 or visit our shop in Auburn Hills, MI.

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. Al Dean's Auto Repair 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 Al Dean's Auto Repair 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 Al Dean's Auto Repair 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 248-852-3095 or visit Al Dean's Auto Repair 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 Al Dean's Auto Repair in Auburn Hills, MI 48326 today.

Fuel Efficiency
The experts at Al Dean's Auto Repair can inspect your vehicle and perform services that can help it operate at peak performance and help improve fuel efficiency and overall fuel economy. These inspections and services may include items such as:

  • Change engine oil, using the recommended grade of motor oil
  • Check and change your air filter
  • Inspect and, if necessary, replace a clogged fuel filter
  • Adjust tire pressure to manufacturer-recommended specs
  • Inspect/clean the intake system
  • Inspect/replace emissions components and/or a faulty oxygen sensor
  • Inspect brakes for proper adjustment
  • Inspect power steering system and perform a steering alignment, if necessary
  • Align front suspension
  • Clean or replace dirty or malfunctioning fuel injectors
  • Inspect/replace spark plugs and spark plug wires
  • Check exhaust for clogged catalytic converter
  • Examine the exhaust gas recirculation system

Pre-Purchase Inspections
Are you planning to buy a new car? Don't take chances. Be confident about the car you are buying. Have pre-purchase inspections performed on the vehicle. Pre-purchase inspections involve examining the car's condition to ensure it is worth buying. At Al Dean's Auto Repair, we have pre-purchase inspection experts - mechanics who will scrutinize any car, make, and model and allow you to make an informed decision. Pre-purchase inspections will definitely give you peace of mind when you buy your next used car.

Pre-Trip Inspection
A pre-trip check up can make the difference between a safe trip and one that ends in a tragedy. The inspection aims at looking for possible defects and potential mechanical problems that could cause disaster. Before embarking on a trip you should make sure your car is fully inspected for safety. You can rely on the experts at Al Dean's Auto Repair. We have pre-trip inspection experts who are able to conduct safety inspections on any car, make, and model. Our experts are dedicated to ensuring you have a safe trip. Simply drop by or give us a call at 248-852-3095.

What People Say About Us


  • -Torri B.

    I can't say enough great words about this experience from start to finish!! This garage is absolutely wonderful - caring, affordable and speedy. The epitome of customer service! Well done Al Dean's, you have an A++ approval from me!! Thank you for your great vibes, a great start to this beautiful day!!


  • -Collin L.

    These guys are great. I've had more than a few repairs done here, and never had any problems with the cost or the service. In most cases I already had the replacement part, and the labor charge was very reasonable for the level of quality from the mechanic. After a few visits, the boss recognizes me and still waves anytime I see him out front. This is a shop that I refer everyone in town to. Even if you're in southern Rochester or east side Pontiac, it's worth the trip to have the job done right.


  • -Sarah A.

    I was beyond pleased with my experience at Al Dean's Auto Repair. My father had recommended this place to me when I needed my bumper repaired and the service I was provided was above and beyond. The owner was very respectful and kind and took extra time out of his day explaining things about my car to me. Along with this, the prices were very reasonable compared to other services I have looked into. I would definitely recommend this place!


  • -Danielle R.

    My stepfather has been coming here for years and I have never come because it is a 30 minute drive. I called for prices and they blew the other places out of the water. The work is quality and prices are great. I will be coming here from now on and referring everyone I know!


  • -Shageng C.

    Chuck is wonderful man, very friendly and caring. Saved me thousand of dollar comparing to the dealers' quote. Both my car and my Dad's are rolling great on the road. I will highly recommending this auto shop to my friends for the professional skill and honesty.


  • -Ross H.

    The work on my vehicle was completed quickly, correctly, and at a fair price. Also, Chuck is hilarious. I will be bringing my vehicle back here for future maintenance and repairs.


  • -Jennifer O.

    Very prompt and friendly service. The owner and the mechanics were very accommodating. My brakes started grinding and I had to get them done in between my classes since they closed when my last class started. They gave me a ride back to school to wait so I wasn't stranded and they got the job done before they told me. Very reasonable pricing as well. I will return when needed.


  • -Preston P.

    They were recommended to me by a family friend. I needed a quick fix and they got the job done. I will be coming back to these great local guys!


  • -Aashish K.

    Very professional and friendly people. Gave me free advice on replacing the tires for my BMW when I approached them for a flat tire, told me there was no life left in the tire anymore and there was no point in getting that fixed. Any other placed would have charged me $20 for the flat tire and not inform me about it not being good anymore.


  • -Christopher S.

    Impressive work done by awesome people. A wheel bearing failed on my vehicle when I was interviewing in the area with my wife and kids. Aldeans put in the extra effort to take care of us and get us back on the road home that day. Amazing turn around time in my mind. They were also very personable and took time to explain what happened and what to expect. Thank you!


  • -Anthony L.

    Had a work van break down on a tech in the area and had it towed to these guys. They could have got the van done that day by 6 but I needed it done faster. I brought them the part and they put it on for me. Price was reasonable and work was done fast. Nice people and understood my situation completely.


  • -Jerry C.

    Chuck is a true gentleman, very knowledgeable and will show you the repairs that need to be made on your vehicle and best of all he's very affordable. I highly recommend Al Dean?s!


  • -Kristi K.

    I was shopping at Farm Boy next door to Al Dean's Auto today when my car wouldn't start. Not knowing what the problem was, I walked over to Al Dean's to see if anyone could help. Al was so helpful and professional. He walked over with me, pointed out the problems he saw with the battery (which I had just bought in May 2016 from the dealer) and helped me to jump start it. He advised I go back to them, since it should be under warranty. I was so impressed with his knowledge and kindness. He took the time to show me the problem, and advised how to fix it. I will definitely return the next time I need an automotive repair, he earned a new customer today!


  • -Jenise B.

    My husband's truck broke down on 75 when he was heading North for the weekend. It was towed to Al Dean's Auto and checked out on Saturday. After some usual codes were detected and diagnostic tests run, the mechanics found fried fuses, particularly the anti theft fuse causing the truck to shut off. These guys are simply the best and I can't thank them enough for their quick and excellent work! I would recommend them to anyone who needs work done -- even if it's towed in!


  • -John Y.

    Went in for brakes after reading reviews. They provided a courtesy ride, communicated while they had my car, texted pics of what they saw, and fixed the problem promptly for a fair price. Friendly and trustworthy service.


  • -Lars J.

    Chuck was extremely accommodating and more than efficient when addressing my vehicle's needs. Not only was he professional, Chuck was an all around nice guy and exemplified customer service. I'll definitely go back for my other service needs!


  • -Bejone M.

    Chuck is a great guy who was willing to listen carefully and provide me with information about my problem. He was very personable and honest. When I brought my car in he explained all of the problems that were wrong with my car and was very straightforward about whether or not my engine could be fixed with the little money I had on hand. Most other places would take your money and then let you be disappointed later. The info he gave allowed me to stop dumping money into a car I had been struggling to maintain with worry and sell it to get something reliable instead. I got some basic maintenance done for a great price and lightning fast service. Come here if you want to work with someone who cares about community and actually helping people!


  • -Gail B.

    They know autos and are respectable. They show damaged parts and explain what's needed to return the vehicle to good working condition. They get my recommendation!


  • -M. Ant

    Thanks Chuck!!! I was directed to his shop when I had a slow leak in left rear tire. Chuck explained that he is not equipped to change tires, but he took the time to examine the problem and found the nail embedded in the tire. He referred me to an excellent shop to have the work done at a honest and fair price. When you have out of state plates and your family with you, facing a long drive home, some honest help is the best you can hope for. Thanks again Chuck!!!!


  • -Torri B.

    I can't say enough great words about this experience from start to finish!! This garage is absolutely wonderful - caring, affordable and speedy. The epitome of customer service! Well done Al Dean's, you have an A++ approval from me!! Thank you for your great vibes, a great start to this beautiful day!!
