Engine and Drivetrain

The engine of a vehicle is the muscle keeping it moving. Without an engine vehicles wouldn’t get very far, unless they are the Fred Flintstone design. Did you know most repair shops will work-on or fix an engine, but if an engine needs to be replaced they won’t do it?

Shantok Motors isn’t one of those places, almost anything on your engine that can be fixed can be repaired at Shantok Motors, and if needed replacing your entire engine is something that can be done. You don’t have to go to a big dealership to get the ‘big’ work done on your vehicle.

Don’t forget, the engine is only as good as the transmission and drivetrain so the horsepower can get to the road. Shantok Motors is able to service, maintain, and replace your vehicle’s transmission.

Don’t be fooled by the Big Guys with expensive parts and labor to make up for the marketing costs of their radio ads. Shantok Motors’ experienced staff has worked on more engines then can be listed here, Shantok Motors knows the in and out’s of almost every vehicle manufactured. Shantok Motors can deliver better service and the exact same certified manufacturer parts for less than the ‘Big Guys.’ Best of all you won’t be a number in a huge system; you will be a personal customer to the experienced staff here at Shantok.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT IT IS ILLEGAL AND VERY DANGEROUS TO WORK ON OR REPAIR THE A/C IN YOUR VEHICLE!

Brakes, Suspension and Steering
Where your car makes contact with the road it is crucial that it makes contact safely. Just because a car is heavy doesn’t mean it is contacting the road properly and safely.

Almost everyone remembers their brakes need to be replaced when they hear that obnoxious squeal when their foot presses down on the pedal. Most people brush it off until ‘next week’ which usually turns into next season. Did you know that your brakes should be replaced well before you hear that squeal? Putting it off for weeks after first hearing it is even worse, both for safety and repair costs.

Quarterly inspections of your brakes will allow you to know when to change them. Brakes are two parts, pads and rotors, pads are usually easy and cost effective to change. Rotors can really start to add to the cost of getting your brakes working safely and properly again. When you hear that squeal, think of it as a pin destroying your rotors. Inspections are critical for your brakes to work properly and save on costly unnecessary repairs, besides you wouldn’t drive your vehicle without brakes would you? Shantok Motors is able to quickly inspect your brakes as well as replace and fix them properly.

The suspension is what really keeps a car in contact with the road properly. A worn out strut or shock will make it so your tire does not remain flat on the road. Roads are bumpy, even newly paved ones, you might not feel all the bumps because of your suspension, when you start to feel those bumps your suspension is going, and your tires are not contacting the road properly. Vehicles with worn out shocks, bushings, and ball joints put into an emergency situation requiring heavy braking or quick steering will not be able to stop or steer properly and result in a very bad situation, even wrecking the vehicle or causing serious injuries. Shantok Motors is able to inspect, replace, and repair any suspension part on a vehicle.

Most drivers today have never driven a car without power steering. When a vehicles power steering gives way you will know it, and for most drivers, it could be the scariest time behind the wheel of a vehicle. Proper inspection of power steering fluids, hoses, and valuable parts can prevent most of these items from happening to you. Shantok Motors has multiple tools and the experience needed to inspect, diagnose and repair any power steering issues.
